Japanese yakuza clan heir Ranmaru just got married on a lavish cruise ship, but things aren't as they seem. The marriage is just for the appearances, and he ends up getting drunk and spending the night not with his bride but with the sexy ship captain.
This work contains examples of:
- Bridal Carry: Al carries Ranmaru this way after rescuing him from his captors.
- Distracted by the Sexy: Al gets flustered while looking at a disheveled Ranmaru, to the point that while he's staring at him, he doesn't notice that the water he's pouring is spilling onto the floor.
- Even the Guys Want Him: Ranmaru tends to attract many men without realizing or intending it. Even Gondou, who is straight and in love with Kaoru, is temporarily tempted by him.
- Phenotype Stereotype: Al is a blond blue-eyed Italian.
