Kei Fujieda was bored - bored with school, bored with his friends, bored with life. Having been forced to attend an elite high school, Fujieda's days were spent feeling trapped. Only his rebellious, bad-boy attitude gave him a fleeting sense of excitement in his otherwise dreary existence. It wasn't until a school prank went bad that Kei found a reason worth living in Atsushi Sakuraba. Sakuraba was a model student and a teacher's pet; a complete opposite of Fujieda.
