Plot Summary: Hikari Hanazono has always been in second place behind Kei Takishima. He also happens to love Hikari, which is known to everyone except her. Their wrestling loving fathers first introduced them to one another when they were 6 years old. Self-assuming to be the best in wrestling (and everything else,) young Hikari challenges Kei to a wrestling match only to be thoroughly defeated by him. Ever since that fateful introduction and incident, Hikari swears she will find a way to beat Kei in school, sports, or anything.
