[[PolarOppositeTwins Tsubasa and Arisa are really different]].

Arisa is her [[ClassRepresentative class' rep]], [[BrainyBrunette has the best grades]] and a lot of friends. She is really [[TheIngenue good natured]] and everybody likes her.

Tsubasa is known as the "Demon Princess" of her school, because she is a {{Delinquent}} who always gets into fights, and her [[OneOfTheBoys only friends are boys]] because the girls are dead scared of her. Also, [[BookDumb she's got really bad grades]].

So when Tsubasa says that she's envious of her, Arisa suggests they [[TwinSwitch change places for one day]].

However, there are things about Arisa and her school that she hasn't mentioned to Tsubasa -- dangerous things. And when Arisa [[InterruptedSuicide tries to kill herself]] in front of Tsubasa and [[AngstComa falls into a coma]], Tsubasa decides that she must know the truth about Arisa in order to save her.
