Before the accident, Masashi Rando was the champion of the karate team, the baddest guy in school. But beneath his fearless, ass-kicking surface, he just wanted to have the courage to ask out the girl he loves, Rina Kurimi. But no! Never! he thought. There's no way she could ever like a lowlife hooligan like me!! While he's thinking this, the school bus plunges off a cliff and burst into flames, with Rando inside it. And then…darkness.
