PlotEdit

A school girl is walking to her high school to begin her second school year. Before she can reach her destination, she is suddenly escorted into a car and taken to Cielterre Academy, a famous school of luxury attended by young celebrities, politicians, and other wealthy families. While it functions as a school, the building looks more like a large mansion or private villa for high class citizens.

When the girl is waiting inside the school's guest room, she meets an elderly millionaire named Ranzan Iwai. From him, she learns that she is actually his estranged granddaughter. His son (the girl's father) had a dispute over the woman he wanted to marry, therefore leading to them being separated for years. Ranzan wants his granddaughter to carry on his legacy and fortune, forcing her to stay at Cielterre Academy against her will. Disgusted by her mediocre ways, he wants her to educate herself to act as a lady worthy of her heritage. To multiply her new troubles, Ranzan demands she decide on a mate among six young gentlemen in the school so he can have a proper heir.

Terminology
  • Eagle, Falcon, Hawk (鷲 Washi, 隼 Hayabusa, 鷹 Taka) - The three divisions of power and prestige for rich families throughout the world. They are also called "Red Eagle Group", "White Falcon Group", and "Blue Hawk Group" respectively. Eagle and Hawk are equally ranked as rivals for top class wealth, while Falcon acts as the middle ground between them.
  • Lot Phi (ロトφ) - A supposed nickname for six popular male figures attending Cielterre Academy. They are members of the previously mentioned ranks. Yui's grandfather wants her to decide on one of them to become the future heir of his family fortune. They all have half-Japanese descent.
  • Half (ハーフ) - "Half" is Japanese slang for someone who is born from a certain ethnicity with a Japanese mate. "Half" has been sometimes criticized as a prejudice term, akin to the dated Japanese word for "foreigner", since it is an umbrella term used to distinctly note anyone "outside" of Japan. This is not the case in this game, however, since Ranzan wants his granddaughter to broaden her horizons and marry a gentleman with heritage from abroad. To avoid a possible dispute or offense, this term will not be used for this article. Instead, parents will be listed to note a character's heritage.
