A shoujo manga by Maki Minami about Hikari Hanazono, a girl with a mission. That mission? To beat her rival, Kei Takishima, in something. Anything. It started when he beat her in wrestling (their fathers both being huge pro wrestling fans) at the age of 6, and it's continued ever since. She's so driven that she even begs her father, a mere carpenter, to let her attend the prestigious Hakusen Academy, for this chance. She even manages to rise to the second rank in the school, placing her in the most elite class division - '''''Special A''''', reserved only for the top seven students in the entire academy.

* CallBack: As a background joke, note Hikari's lunch whenever she's shown eating it. She continues to make and eat [[LethalChef perfectly spherical rice balls]].

* HeyItsThatVoice - Kei (portrayed by {{Jun Fukuyama}}), at times, can sound quite a lot like [[CodeGeass a certain]] {{Magnificent Bastard}}.
** Who knew that [[YukoGoto Hikari]] could also be a [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya moe, tea-serving time traveler?]]

Added DiffLines:

** Hikari herself is a platonic example. She values the company of other people, but there's no denying that Kei is usually the focus of her attention.
