A good family background and a good character! At this school, the Shuchi’in Academy, gather smart children with a bright future!
As the president and vice president of the student council Miyuki Shirogane and Kaguya Shinomiya should be attracted to each other, but… It’s been half a year and nothing happened! That’s because two can’t be honest with themselves and have their own pride stand in the way of their feelings. So the only thing they can think about is ‘How can I make the other person confess first?’.
Love is fun until a relationship starts! And the fun of this love comedy starts with a war of brains between geniuses!
