Asahi Kuromine is a 2nd-year high school student that is nicknamed "sieve with a hole in it" - shortened to "hole sieve" - from his inability to hide things. He secretly harbored feelings for someone - a mysterious classmate, Yoko Shiragami. But in turn, she also harbored a certain secret.

She was actually.... a vampire!! And if anyone found out, she would be immediately expelled!!


Asahi the hole sieve found out such an identity of Yoko, and Yoko was a vampire that was found out.
