Special A

Hikari Hanazono has always been second to Kei Takishima. When they were six years old, their pro-wrestling loving fathers introduced them to each other. Assuming that she was the best in wrestling, young Hikari challenged Kei to a wrestling match only to be thoroughly defeated by him. Ever since that fateful incident, Hikari swore to beat Kei in school grades, sporting events - anything. To do this, she has enrolled in the same school as Kei since elementary. Now she attends Hakusenkan, an ultra elite school, that costs her carpenter father a lot of money. Hikari and Kei are the top two students in the school, with Kei holding firmly to that number one position. While Hikari considers Kei to be a rival and important friend, she is completely unaware that Kei loves her. The story primarily focuses on Hikari and her constant attempts to defeat her one and only rival, Kei, and how she finds love in their rivalry.

[Edit]At the age of 6, Hanazono Hikari and Takishima Kei were brought together because of their fathers' love for wrestling. Being undefeated, Hikari tasted her first defeat by Kei, and from that day on, she vowed to surpass Kei (who is now her eternal rival), who is extremely talented at whatever he attempts. As teenagers, they both attend the same expensive elite school where the top 7 students form the group known as the "Special A", where Kei is ranked 1st and Hikari is 2nd. The story revolves around their interactions with the other 5 members of the Special A and their day to day school lives where Hikari challenges to defeat Kei, not knowing how he actually feels deep inside.

Her whole life, Hikari Hanazono has been consumed with the desire to win against her school rival, Kei Takishima--at anything. He always comes out on top no matter what he does, and Hikari is determined to do whatever it takes to beat this guy . . . somehow! Hikari Hanazono goes to an elite school where the students in each grade are divided by their test scores into groups A through to F. Group A is the top seven students in each class, and thats enough to get the respect of the entire school. But. . . the best students from the first three grades are placed into another group called "Special A" or "SA" for short. "SA" students have special uniforms to seperate them from the rest of the students, and they spend most of their time at school in their own building known as "Paradise on campus".
