At Yamaboshi High, all students are required to join a club. Through a string of coincidences, five, very different 1st year students, Taichi, Iori, Inaba, Aoki, and Yui, form the Student Cultural Society Club. With the stresses of normal high school life, in additional to their personal lives on their shoulders, things become further complicated when the StuCS members mysteriously begin switching bodies with one another at the hands of the enigmatic Heartseed. The bizarre phenomenon exposes each member's darkest secrets and puts their friendships to the ultimate test.
