Transfer student Manabizaki Kyou is a swot, a person who spends too much time studying. His dream is to attend Tokyo University and then work for NASA! He will soon discover, however, that the high school he is transferred into, which was once very prestigious, has taken in delinquents from the surrounding schools. Now it is full of violence and gang fights. Luckily, Manabizaki has a surprising skill at fighting, particularly when he is defending the peace of his study area. Through this strength he will find his new friends, a weak boy called Iwashida and a legendary delinquent girl, Hasuno Nene, who makes him feel things that, for the first time in his life, he cant explain.
