Konoemon Konoe, strapping young heir to Kyoto's most powerful magical family, was secretly enrolled in Mahora Academy, in order to stir trouble with the predominantly Western-style mages who inhabited the area. Relishing the chance to mix it up with their rivals and prove the superiority of Eastern Magic, Konoemon eagerly accepted.
But what Ko never counted on was Sayo. She was a shy beauty, her soft features and long brown hair instantly knocking him off his feet. The first words he spoke to her were "Ms. Lovely, please honor this humble exchange student by becoming his girlfriend."
Sayo promptly fainted.
His original mission forgotten, Konoemon lived a happy life with Sayo. But the western mages did not overlook him, and his importance as heir to the Konoe family. Late one night, while the happy couple enjoyed ice cream, Assassin's appeared, planning to slay the boy. A powerful mage in his own right, Ko managed to slay the lot of them, but not before on mortally wounded Sayo with a powerful spell.
Heartbroken that this foolish, pointless rivalry had killed his beloved, Ko selfishly cast a spell to bind Sayo's soul to the school grounds. He searched for week afterward, hoping to see some sign of her, unknowing that his magical senses were being subconsciously blocked by guilt and Sayo was at his side, calling his name with a ghostly voice.
Years later, Konoemon becomes school headmaster, and the champion of reconciliation with the west. Sayo still waits for him in their old classroom, but even after all these years, his heart remains blind to her...
