The main character is Yukino Miyazawa, a Japanese high school freshman who is the envy of her classmates because of her good grades and immaculate appearance.

Yukino considers his very existence to be a challenge to her class leadership positions and to the praise on which she thrives, and so she vows to destroy him. But after some misunderstandings, they see past each other's facades and fall in love instead.
The series follows their relationship as they are tested by school, family problems, and friends.
