The female lead is Benio Hanamura, a young woman living in [[UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan the Taisho Era]]. Benio has been raised by a single father, a high-ranked military man, since her mom died when she was a little girl. As a result, much to the despair of Hanamura Sr., Benio is a ''huge'' {{Tomboy}}: she doesn't want to get married, scoffs at boys, smokes, drinks, likes reading and riding her bike, and her only resemblances in regards to the YamatoNadeshiko archetype are her looks and her penchant for wearing ''kimonos'' and ''hakama''. Her best friends are Tamaki Kitaouji, a more girlish but also openminded young woman, and Ranmaru Fujieda, a very girly-looking guy coming from a ''kabuki'' background.

Eventually, Benio accepts the engagement -- to [[PleaseDumpMe try scheming against it]] via telling and showing Shinobu that she's an ''horrible'' excuse for a HouseWife, so he and his family will hate her and call everything off. Yet not only dies Shinobu turn out to be a NiceGuy who has come to like Benio as a person and has a saint-like patience to her blunders, but she finds herself falling for him...
