Description

Shuuji is a second year student and is the cousin of Aoi and Tsubame. He is also the step brother of Konomi and the childhood friend of Amane, who is also his ex-girlfriend. He left the family home two years ago because he doesn't get along with his father any more and for a year he has been living with his cousins.

Since he joined Aoi's high school, his only friend has been Kouichi (because he doesn't have a very good reputation), with whom he shares a passion for strategy games. He is also a classmate of Itsuki and Shinobu.

One day, he surprised a Senpai who was heavily and ungraciously seducing his classmate Itsuki and he decided to get her out of there pretending to have asked her for an appointment to see her in private. Playing the games, Itsuki joined Shuuji, smiling and happy, sending the Senpai away. However, Shinobu attended (from afar) the scene and thinked that Itsuki and Shuuji were dating, spreading the rumor in all the school.

Taking advantage of the opportunity to scare the boys, Itsuki asks Shuuji if he agrees to play the game and claim to be her boyfriend, which he does because he sees no problem helping his classmate, thus becoming the most watched and envied man of the high school. At the end of the day, returning home, Aoi picks him up in the living room and orders him to explain everything. Shuuji then tells him that he claims to be his boyfriend to help his classmate and that there is nothing more between them.

Many things happen, and Shuuji finds himself with Itsuki at his side in front of his little sister Konomi and childhood friend Amane who came to see him. The situation is complicated for the false couple of lovers and the stability of their secret hangs by a thread.

Shuuji wants to be independent as soon as possible. For this, he works part-time at the bar-restaurant of the shopping center, the Comeria.

The relationship that Aoi and Shuuji maintain is similar to a relationship between siblings. They heckle, make derogatory remarks and tease each other all the time. However, Shuuji loves Aoi very much, like his sister, and this love is reciprocal. He is ready to do anything for her if she has problems.

Shuuji never gets sick, or very rarely.

Description

Amane is the daughter of the Judo Dōjō's master where Shuuji used to learn. She was there was her eldest and so her mentor. Nowaday, she is a third-year student and is close to a high school not far from Konomi's middle school, who is now her apprentice at the dōjō. She's foul-mouthed and calmly spits abusive language at people because of which she isn't popular despite her great looks.

A few years ago, Shuuji badly wounded her in the left leg during a fight and she had to be operated because the wound was severe. During her convalescence in the hospital, Shuuji decided to go see her and go to confess her feelings for her with a bouquet of flowers and that's how they started to go out together.

Because of her injury, Amane can no longer fight and can no longer compete in judo competitions. After a few years, Amane broke her relationship with Shuuji because he did not treat her like a girlfriend (the only "intimate" thing that Shuuji had done to her was to massage her shoulders and back) but they remained good friends.

One day, as she was returning home, Amane was surrounded by thugs who wanted to force her to have sex with them. Unable to fight, Amane was in a bad situation. Shuuji then intervened so that the thugs give up the case, but one of them then left a knife. Shuuji then attacked the first and made a real carnage by exploding them violently. Because of this incident, Shuuji was excommunicated from the dōjō in front of all the students because he violated the rules of judo and has used it to attack people (even if it was justified). It was the last time he saw Amane before seeing her again, when she takes her protégé Konomi to see how her step brother is, at Aoi's house the following year.

The dōjō of her family works so well that he even attracts police officers who come to train. Thanks to that, Amane's family is quite wealthy, and they have many cars in their garage.

Amane has a great passion for driving, she passed her driving license not long ago. She always does judo, but only gives lessons with her father and doesn't fight.

She is the most popular girl in her high school, but no boys approach her because she sends them away violently.

Description

Konomi is in her last year of middle school and is the step sister of Shuuji. She practices judo as Shuuji did before with Amane as a mentor. Unlike Nadeshiko, Konomi gets along well with Shuuji, she loves her new family and she worries a lot about him, who does not give her any news since he left. Her real father has also deceased, but Konomi is straightforward and does her best in this hard situation. She's doing her best to do something about the cold relationship between her mother and her step brother. She's admirably well-behaved and calm, but she her personality has a strong base and she acts whenever needed.

Aside from her family, Konomi loves Amane and Aoi a lot and she would like to one day be able to cook as well as they do.

She is a very innocent and naive girl. Pretty shy, she doesn't dare to impose too much to say what she thinks. To help her get some insurance, Amane trains her to Judo herself and that helps her to at least have the courage to speak to other peoples.

Two or three years ago, she used to go to Shuuji's room to read manga or light novels on his bed. Also nowadays, Konomi doesn't have a particular hobby except staying in her room to read manga, which suggests she must be very alone.

Description

Aoi is the little sister of Tsubame and the cousin of Shuuji who's living together with them. She is a second year student and is the classmate of Shuuji, Kouichi, Itsuki and Shinobu. She is also a childhood friend of Amane. Seeing that her cousin was in a problematic situation, she has consulted with Tsubame and picked Shuuji up to live with them. She is very close to Konomi and her policy is "there's no need to work hard".

Aoi is a girl who has a double life, she is very lonely and reserved for school, dressing so as not to show off, wearing glasses, tying her hair, with the label of the serious and boring student, which means that she has no friends at school, even coldly avoiding her cousin when they meet in class. Outside, Aoi is another girl: she is a stylish and a famous model knowed as Shirai Sumire (白井 スミレ) with a shoulder-length bob and is very sexy. At home, Aoi is much more relaxed. Wearing revealing clothes as pajamas and playing retro games in the living room (his favorite game is Pokevy, a very long game that has no backup function). When Aoi learns that Shuuji is in a relationship with Itsuki, she picks him up in the living room and orders him to explain.

The relationship that Aoi and Shuuji maintain is similar to a relationship between siblings. They heckle, make derogatory remarks and tease each other all the time. However, Aoi loves Shuuji very much, like her brother, and this love is reciprocal. She is ready to do anything for him if he has problems. She has no embarrassment with Shuuji because she doesn't see him at all as a potential lover of the opposite sex, even asking him how he does to "endure" his impulses since he lives alone with two pretty girls. She even thinks that Shuuji fantasizes about Tsubame because he always looks "discreetly" the breasts, buttocks and thighs of her sister.

Description

Itsuki is a second year student and a classmate of Shuuji, Shinobu, Aoi and Kouichi. She is also Shinobu's best friend and one of the best swimmers in the swim club. With pretty curves and a pretty face, Itsuki is considered as the most beautiful girl in the school and is the target of all boys.

One day, while a Senpai was heavily seducing her behind the school gym, Shuuji came to get her out of there pretending to have asked her for an appointment to see her in private. Playing the games, Itsuki joined Shuuji, smiling and happy, sending the Senpai away. However, Shinobu attended (from afar) the scene and thinked that Itsuki and Shuuji were dating, spreading the rumor in all the school.

Taking advantage of the opportunity to scare the boys, Itsuki asks Shuuji if he agrees to play the game and claim to be her boyfriend, which he does because he sees no problem helping his classmate, thus becoming the most watched and envied man of the high school.

Although she and Shuuji feign their relationship, she really wants to become his friend and get to know him better without taking into account the prejudices of his reputation as a fighter. She is very friendly with others so she makes friends very fast, even with Aoi although it's after she has discovered that she is in fact a sex bomb.

Itsuki is very feminine and likes to dress to look very cute. She is a bit of a nuisance, but she quickly loses her ability when someone has sincerely complimented her. Also, she is very weak against cute things, so when she meets Konomi, Itsuki melts of love in front of her.

Even if they are only friends, Itsuki is a little jealous to hear Shuuji call Aoi by her first name and that he doesn't do it with her. She even develops a sort of inferiority complex to Aoi and Amane, who have a divine gift for cooking, who have generous forms and are much sexier than her.

Shinobu is also part of a swimming club but she doesn't swim because she has a poor health so she assists the swimmers in noting their times.

By accident, she saw Shuuji save Itsuki who was with an insistent Senpai who wanted to take her for a ride in the pink district of the city. Seeing Itsuki going to Shuuji in a friendly way, she misunderstands. Very happy that her friend has finally got a boyfriend , she has spread the rumor that "Itsuki and Shuuji go out together".

From time to time she tries to probe onto the two's relationship while making sure they don't break up and thinks that "it's good that Itsuki got a boyfriend".

Description

Kouichi is a second year student and Shuuji's first friend since he arrived in high school and is also his classmate with Itsuki, Shinobu and Aoi. Intelligent and voluntary in high school life, Kouichi has the reputation of a very serious student.

Like many, he had heard of the violent reputation of the Demon of Hayabara, a lonely brawler. However, he and Shuuji quickly became sympathetic the day they met outside of school in a video game store. Sharing the same passion, Kouichi spent all his free time playing strategy games in Shuuji's room, which gave rise to an unpleasant rumor that they were in a relationship.

Like many boys at school, he is jealous that Itsuki, the most beautiful girl in the school, has become his girlfriend.

Surprisingly, though, having spent more than a year playing video games in Shuuji's room, Kouichi never noticed that his friend and Aoi were cousins and lived under the same roof.

After consulting with Aoi, she decided to take Shuuji in. She is often absent because of her job so she relies a lot on Aoi to take care of Shuuji and when she is at home, she mostly sleeps. She doesn't seem like a person who's taking things very seriously.

Sometimes in the evening, when Shuuji works at Comeria, she goes to see him and to eat with Aoi and spend some time with them.
