All Nobara ever wanted to do was to play volleyball. However, since she's the eldest daughter of her family's establishment, her family wants her to inherit the role of the young mistress. And when she enters a new school, she finds out that her mother went as far as to cancel the girls' volleyball team. Out of anger, Nobara ran away from home, and went for her aunt's help. Her aunt ended up taking her to the boys' dorm for the boy volleyball players, and had her get the role of the dorm mom. Now, Nobara has to deal with finding a way to get the girls' volleyball team back, and, for the first time, learn how to clean and do all the housework.

Her family wants her to be the perfect japanese daughter and take over the business; Nobara has other plans.
