A weekly radio program is hosted by two high school radio jockeys, Yuuhi Yuugure and Yasumi Utatane, who just so happen to attend the same school and were assigned to the same class. They demonstrate their wonderful relationship to all the listeners as voice actors and fellow pupils!

On the surface, anyway. Chika, the calm girl, and Yumiko, the gyaru, are total opposites. And they are utterly incompatible with one another. Anarchy and insults break out off-air. They have the nicest friendship on air. But where will their turbulent romance end up?
