Two of the persons involved in this CrapsaccharineWorld are Akiko Hashou, a young and beautiful noblewoman, and her equally pretty maidservant Sara Uchida. The girls's lives seem to be going on relatively smoothly until both Akiko and Sara meet Takao Itou alias Taka, a handsome man from a low-class setting, who also has ties to the {{Yakuza}}; this sets off a turbulent LoveTriangle that totally changes the three's lives. For worse, a fateful date is nearing: [[spoiler: September 1, the day of the ''Kanto Daishinsai'' aka [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Kanto_Earthquake Great Kanto Earthquake]]...]]
