Earth and another world, two people with completely different backgrounds and values. For some reason, the memories and personality of Haruto, who should have died, are revived in Rio's body. While the two are confused by the merging of their personalities, Rio decides to live in this new world.

Along with Haruto's memories, Rio evokes a "special power" and it seems that he could lead a better life if used well. But before that, Rio stumbles upon the scene of a kidnapping who turns out to be a princess from the kingdom of Bertram, in which he lives. After Rio saves her, Rio receives a scholarship to the Royal Academy, a school for rich and powerful young men.
