Bakada High School is a well-known Yankī (delinquent) school, where students only know how to fight. On the other hand, Cattleya High School is a exclusive girls' school meant for the rich, where students are very refined. One day, it was announced that Bakada would merge into Cattleya to form Cattleya No.2 High School. However, students from Bakada and Cattleya were unable to accept each other, since they come from vastly different backgrounds. Over time, the two opposing groups slowly get to understand each other better.

The story progresses after the final episode of the series. After the dispute among the Bakada Boys, the students of the Bakada/Cattleya No.2 were temporarily transferred to Cattleya No.1 for a month due to the Bakada High School Building being renovated for repairs caused by the last earthquake. Upon transfer, the Bakada Boys' dispute escalated further, causing trouble for Fumie, Saya and the others. Furthermore, one of Bakada's old rival school re-appears to challenge the successor of Sakuragi Ren.
