  • show Description
  • Kotoko Aihara has been in love with Naoki Irie since they both started high school. There is a problem however; she is in the school's worst class, Class F, and he is in the school's top class, Class A. When she finally musters up the courage to confess her feelings to him, through a love letter, he rejects her outright, saying "I don't want it!" When Kotoko's house is ruined in an earthquake, her and her dad decides to live with her dad's childhood friend. However, it seems that the son of this man is none other than Naoki Irie; the very person who rejected Kotoko so outrightly. Now living together, the lives of Kotoko and Naoki will change.moreless

    • Shigeki: Oh, so this is Kotoko-chan? Kotoko: Nice to meet you! Shigeki: Welcome. Nao! Hey, Nao! Kotoko-chan and her father are here! Kotoko: (thinking) Nao? (Kotoko looks up, and sees Naoki) Naoki: Welcome. Shigeo: Nice to meet you. I'm Aihara. Naoki: I'm the eldest son, Naoki. Nice to meet you. Kotoko: (thinking, upset) No way! What should I do?

    • Naoki: Hey, would you let me through? Kotoko: Irie-kun! Kinnosuke: You! Whose fault do you think it is that Kotoko is now in such terrible pain? Naoki: The fault of the level 2 quake, right? Kinnosuke: Shut up! It's because you said those nasty things to Kotoko! That was the catalyst behind the many disasters that Kotoko suffered! Naoki: You're saying that I caused the quake? Kinnosuke: That's right! Kotoko: Kin-chan, that's enough. Please stop! Naoki: Fine. You won't have any complaints if I donate, right? (he takes out some money) Here. (Kotoko slaps his hand) Kotoko: Don't make a fool out of me! It was a total waste having feelings for someone like you these past two years! I don't want your blessing even if it kills me. Naoki: Are you sure it's okay to say something like that? Kotoko: Of course it is! There's no reason for me to be taken care of by you! Don't treat me like a fool just because I'm stupid. (Naoki laughs) Kotoko: (thinking) What the? You're not supposed to laugh!

    • Girl: Hey, did you see the news? Boy: I did. A house collapsing from a mere level-2 quake? Girl: It's Aihara-san! And she just got rejected by Irie-kun yesterday. What a disaster for her. Boy: The bad luck doesn't end, huh? Girl: Yeah. Poor thing.

    • Kinnosuke: (screaming) Kotoko! (upset) Is it true that you confessed to Irie-kun? You like that damn nerd? While you still have me too... isn't that too much? Kotoko: It's not like I belong to you, Kin-chan. Kinnosuke: (still upset) What's with those cold words? Haven't we sat next to each other in class for two years? (angry) However, I will never forgive that Irie bastard for rejecting Kotoko!

    • Kotoko: And like that, I fell in love with Irie-kun at first sight. But, sorted by ability Irie-kun was placed into Class A, the class where all the smart people gather. I'm in Class F, the worst class, also known as the leftover class. I studied desperately with the single goal to be in the same class as Irie-kun. But in the end, as probably predicted, I stayed in class F.

    • (After Kotoko has been rejected by Naoki) Girl 1: She confessed to the Irie-kun? Girl 2: Aihara-san did that? Girl 1: It seems she was rejected instantly. Boy: Worse yet, it was in front of everyone. Girl 1: You serious? That must be so embarrassing. Girl 2: Isn't Aihara-san in Class F? She sure has guts confessing to someone from Class A like Irie-kun. Boy 1: It's more like she just doesn't know her place. Girl 2: You said it. Kotoko: Leave me alone already! Everyone: Ah, she got upset. Kotoko: You're all so cruel!

    • (Kotoko is delivering her love letter to Naoki) Naoki: I don't want it.

    • (Naoki is handing Kotoko her lunch box) Naoki: Sheesh, mix-ups happen just because we go to the same school. Kotoko: That's right. You might even get the wrong uniform next time and wear mine instead, Irie-kun. (Naoki looks frazzled) Naoki: Why would I wear yours mistakenly? (Kotoko holds up a picture of Naoki in a dress from when he was younger) Kotoko: Oh, that's becauseā€¦ it seems like you used to like to wear skirts when you were younger. You're so adorable Irie-kun! (Naoki looks shocked and annoyed)

  • Bear with the slow and sometimes frustrating first half, since this is one of those series that rewards loyalty.
