Hotaru Tachibana, the student council president, is a hardcore tomboy girl who seeks to fight with other people to "defeat evil". An encounter with Masamune Matsuoka, a host, and a misunderstanding with her friend Kanae Yajima had her lose a wager with Masamune and is drawn into the world of survival games by having to apply to his airsoft team "Toy Gun Gun".
