Will wonders never cease...? It appears that relations between the forever-hapless Hatsumi and her haughty quasi-boyfriend Ryoki Tachibana are on the up-and-up, but not if Ryoki's mom has her way.
Deeming Hatsumi unworthy of her heavenly son's affections, Mrs. Tachibana hatches a scheme for Ryoki to fall in love with an equally brainy, upper-class young lady. Will Ryoki drop Hatsumi like a proverbial bag of dirt when this new "Little Miss Perfect" shows up?
Plus, an equally jaw-dropping flashback to Hatsumi's tiny-tot days that throws new light on how the veritable train wreck of her life got started.
Story and art by Miki Aihara.
