For as long as she's been aware, the heroine, without a single relative, lived under the care of the state. Both of her parents' faces were unknown to her.
In front of this heroine, a young boy appeared.
The young boy's name was "Hikaru". It appeared that he was the heroine's twin brother, separated at birth. He had a proposal for the heroine.
"Could you go to school in my place?"
The heroine was shocked by this crazy suggestion.
Furthermore this was an all-boys school. The only high school in this prefecture for delinquents.
Hikaru was part of the most ancient and honorable family in the criminal underworld (yakuza), the Onigashima family.
Under his father's strict teachings, the school that he was to attend had been decided.
And that school was Shishiku Academy. A high school where all the terrible and wild delinquents were gathered.
Enrolled in this school, a child of the Onigashima family was obligated to occupy and control this school.
Hikaru did not want to have anything to do with delinquents. But to defy his father meant death.
Hikaru, who learnt about his twin sister who was separated from him at birth, was struck with the idea to send her in his place to this school of delinquents.

The Good-Natured Classmate Delinquent

As a person who isn't two faced and is a good-natured person to interact with, he treasures bonds between people, and will help others without compensation. Even though he's together with the heroine more often than anyone else, he's a thickheaded person who hasn't noticed at all that she's a girl.
The Strongest First Year Stoic Delinquent
"You're a nuisance. If you have no business here, leave."
In the class beside the heroine, he is the strongest in their grade. As a user of jiu-jitsu he fights regardless of his physique. In regard to the heroine, who is smaller than everyone else, he feels a kindred spirit and is kind to her somewhat. But, because he dislikes females under the prejudice that "females = weak", never in his wildest dreams would he think that the heroine is a girl.
The Aloof Lone Wolf Delinquent
"Don't be rash. It's better not to do such a thing like fight, right?"

There will be a map of the school and the town with locations that you can choose to go to. There will also be character icons to show you the characters that you are able to interact with if you choose to go to their location. There, a conversational event will occur or "special events" to deepen your relationship with certain characters.
During the conversational event you can decide not to have a normal conversation and instead choose to talk with your fists. This leads to you deciding what kind of face you want to use to "glare" at them and start the fight. There are nine different types of faces for you to decide on to use against your opponent and it'll change your battle lines. There will be a line that is displayed which you'll have to remember and then you have to choose the correct line to use within the time limit (gist is to verbally challenge them and win!).
