The three-part manga was originally published in Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine from 1982

to 1983, then compiled in one-volume tankobon, and didn't achieved much success at the time.

30 years later, it suddenly started gaining internet buzz, and Takarajimasha released its reprint edition

in 2015. Even more surprisingly, it has printed over 300,000 copies so far, which was ten times more

than originally planned. 

 

The story is set in a fictional Japan where people are discriminated based on their birthplace and

residence. Saitama Prefecture is particularly hated by the people in Tokyo. One day, a mysterious

male student named Rei Asami transfers to Dannoura Academy, a prestigious high school in Tokyo,

from America. Momomi Dannoura, the male president of the school's student council and the grandson

of the director of the school, is gradually attracted by him. However, Rei's secret origin that he was

born in Saitama is accidentally revealed. He returns to Saitama to join resistance movement to eliminate

discrimination against Saitama citizens. When Momomi learns that a powerful politician tries to destroy

Rei's resistance group, he decides to go to Saitama to inform Rei of the danger.
