Except for one little detail; Asahi is an omega, and one of the other members, Madoka, is an alpha. Insisting on staying unmated to remain loyal to their fanbase, Asahi agrees to a "friends with benefits" arrangement to appease their hormonal urges without commitment. At least, that's what he intends...
