Yuuhi Katagiri is wandering around a suburban street when she accidentally bumps into a couple of guys who decide to hassle her a bit. But along comes second year high school student Jun’ichi Nagase who tells the guys to leave Yuuhi alone. The guys are about to hassle Jun’ichi in turn when one of the punks suddenly recognizes Jun’ichi as the “Gene Killer” and both punks apologize and run off.

Jun’ichi is a bit ticked off at being called Gene Killer, but he is also a bit relieved at not having a confrontation. As Jun’ichi asks Yuuhi if she is alright a large limo drives up and the old driver-retainer addresses Yuuhi, so Yuuhi walks off while waving goodbye.

When Jun’ichi gets home, we find out that he lives alone with his younger sister, he is addicted to various forms of electronic gaming, that his reputation as the Gene Killer is pretty badly misplaced, and that Jun’ichi spends a lot of time daydreaming about his gaming situations.

The next day at school a transfer student is announced in Jun’ichi’s class and it turns out of course to be Yuuhi. Yuuhi and Jun’ichi spot and say hi to each other to the astonishment of the rest of the students, and later spend time together, along with a couple of Jun’ichi’s requisite obnoxious friends, getting acquainted.

That evening Jun’ichi dreams that he is the Gene Killer and that he is attacking Yuuhi, so he doesn’t get much rest. Thus, the next day when Jun’ichi comes to class he is sleepy and is caught in the midst of more daydreams while Yuuhi wants to ask him a question. Mistaking dream for reality, Jun’ichi answers Yuuhi’s question by bending down and kissing her in front of the whole class. After that, Yuuhi transforms and beats out Jun’ichi.

But that evening while Jun’ichi is still recovering at home, there is a ring at the doorbell and there stands Yuuhi with a bag in one hand. She has come to move in with Jun’ichi and his sister. After all, a man must be responsible of his acts, no?
