However, Naoki, a haughty “super-ikemen” (handsome male) with smarts and sports talent, rejects her offhand. Fate intervenes when a mild earthquake ruins Kotoko’s family house. While the house gets rebuilt, Kotoko and her dad stay at the home of her dad’s childhood friend…whose son is Naoki. (from ANN)

This is still one of the best romance stories around!

It was a terrible shame that the creator died in an accident before she could finish the manga, but I am glad the anime received the possible intended ending.
