Plot Summary: Sakuya Ookochi is the young, handsome lead singer for the up and coming group Lucifer. He seems to have everything: looks, talent, a fancy car, yet he also has a deeply troubled past and a too strong personality. His life is changed when he nearly runs down Aine Yukimura. She is a teenager with a talent for words, and Sakuya falls in love with her and her lyrics immediately. Aine also falls in love with Sakuya, but their relationship faces many obstacles. Obsessive fan girls, Sakuya's half brother, and members of rival bands are just some of the things that stand in the way of Aine & Sakuya's love.
