The drama started ever so kawaii.

Mai is a high-school student, just like her brother Yukihiro, who on a rainy day brought home a friend from school.

Mei is very domesticated.  She does the laundry, does the cooking and other housework.  Her brother hollered for her to bring in a towel as he got drenched from the rain.

Mei was enchanted when she saw who was with her brother.  It was the cutest boy ever.  It seemed the boy was equally enchanted with her because Souta had to break their staring contest to get their attention.

Mei then heard the guy, Souta, tells her brother, “your sister is cute.”

Mei had the coolest brother, he did not mind that a boy is after his sister.  In fact he encourage the boy to pursue his sister even when Souta said that he believed that Mei has already got a boyfriend.

Yukihiro was very dismissive.  He asked Souta why that should stop him liking Mei.

With this advice, Souta confessed to Mei when they next saw each other.  Souta said that he knows that Mei has already got a boyfriend but then again ‘nothing ventured nothing gained.”

This confession paid out because Mei said that she hasn’t got a boyfriend and that she likes hm too.


Unfortunately, these two are both naive in love.

Despite confessing to each other, Souta never thought that they are actually dating.

By the way, the conversation between her brother and Souta can always be heard by Mei in her room.  Apparently, the partition wall between bedrooms is so thin.

So Mei was rather confused because she assumed that they are already dating!
