Ryuki was born into a rich family, but two years ago he lost everything and ended up in Tokyo’s infamous red-light quarter. He started working in a cutthroat Host Club where women, mostly prostitutes, come to look for a new boyfriend. He quickly became the Number One Host, but he hopes that the secret that already made him lose everything doesn’t ruin this.
