Hime Shiraki is trying to do what we all wish we did: to clean up her act, and she’s succeeding at it so far. Since she’s still a high school kid, this involves having good grades, a spotless reputation, and to top it off, she is good-looking! Now, the only challenge she faced at that moment was to keep it up till she made it in life under her conditions. Her dream is to be a trophy wife for a rich guy.
Her plans were all proceeding smoothly till she slipped down some stairs. She didn’t get hurt in the fall as she managed to land on top of a girl, injuring the said girl in the process.
The girl’s name is revealed to be Mai Mikoshiba and she is the manager of a restaurant. Hime, therefore, decides to take responsibility for the injury she caused and made a move to take over Mai’s shifts till she recovered.
She later finds out that the café was girls’ academy themed. During her time there, she meets various helpful and spiteful characters and can’t help but be thrown off her usual game as every day there brought its set of challenges and joys.
