Overview
Amawa Hibiki is a young man just out of college, with an education to be an athletics teacher. He's been having a hard time finding a job since he graduated, so all his money has gone towards living expenses. When his landlady demands his first payment to live in her living establishment upfront, he heads to the local middle school to get hired as a teacher. However, the principal refuses to hire him without hesitation. She will not hire men as teachers and makes it clear that she hates all men, saying they put no love into their passions and work. Amawa does not give up and with the help of his landlady, he crossdresses as a woman without a second thought, and gets hired, so he can earn money and also prove the principal wrong. Now, he has to keep his real gender a secret, and avoid strange situations, including the affections of his students (from both genders).

Characters


Hibiki Amawa
Hibiki Amawa is a typical optimistic college graduate whose goal is to become a professional school teacher. Hibiki is in fact a very competent and focused young man who proves that, man or woman, he is proficiently capable of teaching fitness and counseling.

Lulu Sanjo
Lulu Sanjo is the landlady of the Gochiso apartments and school store owner in the same establishment. Despite her incredibly short height and age, Lulu is a very able individual; powerfully skilled in mechanics and technology. Hibiki's strong determination leads her to offer him a plethora of assistance, and with it he is able to aesthetically change his sex and maintain the disguise throughout his time on campus.

Fuko Kuzuha
Clumsy yet selfless, Fuko Kuzuha is a student at the Seito Sannomiya Private School. Despite being accident prone and easily flustered, Fuko is a very strong willed girl who enjoys motivation and interpersonal satisfaction; even at the expense of her own time and dignity. Much to her own personal anxiety, she takes a tender interest in Hibiki's drag, which develops into gender confusion and shame; but eventually confident attraction. Her mother died when she was six years old and her father is a unmarried traveling businessman. Fuko resides at the school dormitories.

Secondary characters

Mori Koji
Mori Koji is a salaryman who is a tenant at the Gochiso apartments; room 101. He has a peculiar fascination with photographing schoolgirls' uniforms with his camera and unusually large mirror; frequently strapped on his back. He is good friends with Tofu Tofukuji.

Tofu Tofukuji
Tofu Tofukuji is a retried elderly man lodging at the Gochiso apartments; room 201. He harbors an obsessive hebephilic interest in Fuko Kuzuha, shown by his photograph collection littered on his apartment walls. A harmless, kind-hearted pervert, Tofukuji is often willing to sacrifice his own safety and freedom to help Hibiki; or otherwise satisfy his craving for upskirts. He is good friends with Mori Koji.

Kura Ge
Hibiki's pet dog. Lulu ends up using Kura Ge as motivational collateral for the unpaid rent. While the breed of Kura Ge is never mentioned, he seems to resemble a Bichon. Kura Ge can usually be seen with a wooden sign hung around his neck that read feeble pointers or, more often than not, comedic statements.

Chieko Sannomiya
Chieko Sannomiya is the eponymous principal of the Seito Sannomiya Private School. She was appointed office a decade prior to the story and carries herself in a conceited, yet formal, aristocratic manner. As a radical misandric, Sannomiya heavily supports feminism and irrationally views males as barbaric nonentities who have no positive qualities. At the conclusion of the series it is revealed that an incident between a man and her lead to her sexist ideology.

Reiko Mukogawa
Vice-principal of the Seito Sannomiya Private School. She works closely with Chieko Sannomiya, and like her, is a stern misandric; resulting from a failed marriage.

Miho Umeda
Miho Umeda is a student at the school and is Fujio's closest friend. Her maturity is considerably more developed than her friends and this at times makes her behave in an arrogant manner; especially when it comes to her past and current experiences with boys.

Akira Fukae
Quiet and composed, Akira Fukae is one of the primary male students on campus. Even though he usually tends to be level-headed, Akira is not afraid to speak his mind or take a stand for what he believes he is fair and just. His father is a private investigator. He occasionally teases Fuko Kuzuha in a rude and hostile way, but despite this, he harbors a strong crush on her.

Kyosuke Aoki
Kyosuki Aoki is another one of the few male students at the school, arguably the most energetic and is also the tallest; comparable to Miho Umeda to the girls. He is takes the biggest interest in Hibiki's drag and frequently proclaims it to her and the others. Is good friends with Akira Fukae.

Shoichi Iwaya
Another enrolled male student at the school and a close friend of Kyosuke Aoki. He is the most lecherous of the group.
