The manga follows Maria Kawai, a girl who is expelled from the prestigious St. Katoria Girls' School and transfers to the Totsuka School. Her brutally honest words and manners isolate her from the rest of her classmates. However, her saving grace may be Yūsuke Kanda and Shin Meguro, the two boys who can take her sharp tongue.

Set in Victorian-era England, the light novels and the manga they inspired follow a 17-year-old named Lydia Carlton whose fascination with fairies led to her nickname, the "Fairy Doctor." While sailing to London, Lydia encounters Edgar J.C. Ashenheart, the Blue Knight Count, and joins him on his search for the sword of his family lineage. An anime aired in 2008 after the manga launched.
