SYNOPSIS:  For some, a home is where the heart is. For others, it's where people send those whose brains aren't functioning properly.  So, when Kazunari Usa is sent to the Kawai Boarding House, it may take a while for him to figure out what kind of "home" his new "home" is. Let's just say that the troublemaking college girl and the perpetually grumpy working woman have some serious issues to work out. On one hand, his new roommate is a pervert and a masochist who peeps at girls' schools, and the landlady thinks feminine protection means leaving weapons lying around the girls' part of the dorm. On the other hand, Kawai is also home to Ritsu Kawai, who steals Usa's heart the second he sees her on his first day at his new school. That alone may just make living in this strange new house worth every second it takes to learn the complex rules of The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors & Hostel Behavior!

Soon, Wakaba is helping (or TRYING to help) her newfound friends with their newfound high school girl problems. From helping innocent Moeko though gymnastics, standing in for Nao in a beauty contest, and inadvertently helping Mao act like a rich girl, to simply enjoying the joys of girl talk and sharing ice cream, there's a whole new world of everyday wonders waiting to be discovered in WAKABA*GIRL!
