Isaku never asked to be the daughter of a yakuza boss, but when her parents died in a car accident when she was just 5 years old, her mobster grandfather took her in and raised her as part of the clan. After years of being avoided by her schoolmates due to her family ties, Isaku is finally ready to make her high school debut, live a normal life, and maybe even find love.
This is how she meets Keiya, who will be one of her new classmates from the first year of high school. Keiya is a rebellious boy who smokes and wields a gun all the time, but to Isaku’s surprise, this fearsome boy promises to protect her from all danger… Is it her grandfather’s doing? What should he do in this situation?
