Astrea Academy is one of the premier all girl’s schools in Japan. It encompasses three separate establishments; Miator, Spica and Lulim. Each is famous in its own right as an excellent school and each seeks to embody specific attributes in the enrolled students. Despite the serene public appearance schools, tensions¬† bubble away just beneath the surface. There is a fierce rivalry between Miator and Spica, and while Lulim seems content to sit on the sidelines, the head of their council is not adverse to meddling in the affairs of the other two. The central plot arc of the trilogy centres on an annual, highly coveted tradition known as the Etoile competition. This involves the selection of a couple who is thought to best represent the three schools.

Nagisa Aoi is a transfer student who has just begun at Miator, the oldest and most traditional of the schools. In almost no time at all, she catches the eye of Shizuma – an older, seductive student who wastes little time in beginning a pursuit of the new student. Shizuma is a former victor of the Etoile competition and re-enters alongside Nagisa. Several other students also apply for the competition and the competition becomes a heated conflict between the three student councils who do not see eye to eye on many issues. Nagisa soon finds herself at the centre of a love-triangle involved Shizuma and her room-mate Tamako, while fellow Etoile competition member Hikari is pursued by both her requited love interest Amane and her room-mate. Who will become the next Etoile and how involved will the couples get?
