But Misaki leads a double life, working in a maid café (where the staff are involved in cosplay) to support her family. A classmate, Takumi Usui, discovers her secret but keeps this to himself. Instead, he starts paying regular visits to the café. It might seem an unlikely match, but they develop strong feelings for each other. As well as this blossoming romance, there’s a lot of comedy, as well as awkward moments.

Stuck in Japan, he meets someone who has the opposite temperament: Megumi Noda, who is studying piano but is scatter-brained.
