This manga tells the story of TAKAKURA Takeru, who is so clumsy that he struggles just to write words, put on his bag or even sit in a chair. Classmate WATANUKI Sachiko , a self-styled busybody, finds his clumsiness to be cool, even as she pokes fun at his clumsiness. This gag comedy on the theme of clumsiness depicts the strange relationship between these two, sometimes with exaggeration and sometimes with charm.
