Ah, high school: time of friends, college entrance exams, and children making the transition to adulthood. But lately, seventeen-year-old Ichiru Morio is noticing more than ever that he's different from other boys his age.

Enter Yoshitaka Saeki, the cold and callous chemistry teacher who, despite his horrible attitude, has unwittingly enthralled Ichiru at first sight. Is handsome Saeki the remedy for Ichiru's apathy? Or is there really something wrong with him after all?
