Makino Tsukushi is the heroine of the series. She's 16 years old (she turns 17 later), and comes from a very poor family. Her mother is constantly arguing with people over the prices of everything. However despite her poverty (and thanks to her parents pouring all their money into her tuition,) Tsukushi attends Eitoku Gakuen, one of the most exclusive private schools in Japan. She is surrounded everyday by the richest of society's children.

Tsukushi at first is quiet and unobtrusive, as she simply tries to make her way through the school without causing any ripples. However after witnessing the antics of the F4 one too many times, Tsukushi snaps, and her naturally aggressive attitude surfaces. In middle school, Tsukushi had no problems standing up for herself. However, since transferring into the exclusive school, her behavior had changed. Now she has reverted back to her strong self. Tsukushi is brave and is a good fighter. She stands up to Doumyouji and the F4 despite her inner fears and nervousness. She refuses to take crap from anyone, no matter how rich they are. Not only is she good at protecting herself, she is also the protector of her friends Kazuya and Makiko-chan.

Rui, Tsukushi, and DoumyoujiTsukushi's family wants Tsukushi to find some rich guy at Eitoku Gakuen to marry, so she can help them all out of their poor lifestyle. And Tsukushi is on her way to doing just that. She is at the center of a tug of war between two members of the F4, Doumyouji Tsukasa and Hanazawa Rui. As for Tsukushi's feelings, they seem to sway towards Hanazawa Rui. However there is also some sort of feeling towards Doumyouji as well, even though they argue most of the time.
