Kanae dropped out of high school, because her father is a gambler while her mother ran away with her boyfriend. Kanae is twenty-two years old, and very poor working for a cleaning shop. She comes to have something to do with Haruki Oda quite by chance. Haruki is an IT millionaire and called "money-mad man," or "the god of death." Then Kanae's life makes a sudden development. Money cannot be made by love alone, though love cannot be bought with money. People of today want to have both love and money. This get-happy-story is a must read for the present-day people.

The art is not very good as the manga is more ...

Preliminary (9/14 eps)
If you like a stories with a bit more depth to them try Diamond Life.
Do not judge this by it's title, this is not some cutesy romance about a girl falling for a rich guy like you would think from the title.
