Paradise Kiss. During her way home from school, a weird-looking man confronts Yukari Hayasaka, who continues to stare at her body attentively. He has blonde spiky hair on his ears and nose, a spiked choker and several piercings. She doesn't want to do something with him and runs away, only bumping into a very tall and stunning purple-haired woman with a flower pattern around her neck. Yukari faints from shock and then wakes up in a strange location called the Atelier. It turns out these strangers are fashion designers who attend Yazawa Art Academy, the most popular art school in the city, and their community wants Yukari to model for their brand in the upcoming show at Yazawa Academy.
