Outstanding in school Iwakura Mitsumi has long harboured aspirations of leaving her little hometown, enrolling in a famous university, and bringing about a constructive change in the world. She’s so intent on achieving her objectives, though, that she is unprepared for the very different (and overwhelming) city life that awaits her in a Tokyo high school. She quickly befriends Shima Sousuke, a charming classmate who is equally laid-back and over-prepared, which is fortunate for her. Will Sousuke’s support enable this innocent village girl to succeed in Tokyo?
