Tonicaku Kawaii Abstract

Nasa Yuzaki is determined to leave his name in the history books. He takes first place in the sham state exam and aspires to a prestigious high school. He is sure that he has mapped out his whole life. However, fate is an fickle mistress. On the way home, on a snowy night, Nasa's gaze falls on an incomparable beauty across the street. Banned, Nasa tries to get closer to them, only to be surprised by an oncoming truck.

Luckily, the girl's quick action saves his life. Bleeding next to an ambulance, he watches the girl walk out into the moonlight, reminiscent of Princess Kaguya heading to the moon. Refusing to let this chance encounter end, he forces his crippled body to chase after her and asks her out. Shocked by his recklessness and sheer determination, the girl accepts his confession on one condition: they can only be together if he marries her!
