Plot[edit | edit source]

Bakada High School is a well-known Yankī (delinquent) school, where students only know how to fight. On the other hand, Cattleya High School is a exclusive girls' school meant for the rich, where students are very refined. One day, it was announced that Bakada would merge into Cattleya to form Cattleya No.2 High School. However, students from Bakada and Cattleya were unable to accept each other, since they come from vastly different backgrounds. Over time, the two opposing groups slowly get to understand each other better.
