Dahlia Academy is introduced. It is a prodigious boarding school home to students of two rivaling countries. There are two different dorms, one for the White Cats, and another for the Black Dogs. The students are loyal to their own country, and fight the other country.
The story begins as the leader of the White Cats is Juliet Persia, and the leader of the Black Doggies is Romio Inuzuka, who challenge each other to fight one on one. Scott attempts to protect Juliet (even though she doesn't need it), and Romio punches him in the face. However, Juliet helps him by returning the favor to Romio.
Just as the fighting is about to get worse, the teachers interrupt the fight and break it up. Scott swears to crush Romio someday as the fighting ends.
As the time skips to the Black Doggy House, Romio is sitting in class and swearing at Juliet. Hasuki imagines going up to him and asking him if he's feeling alright. Before she can open the door though, another student tells her that Romio already left.
Romio is outside, punching a wall in frustration. He admits to himself that he is lost. He has had a crush on her since elementary school and wants to stop fighting with her, but he doesn't know how to get her to feel the same way. He imagines killing a bear and bringing it to her for bear soup as a "manly" confession... but then he slams his head against a concrete pole declaring that his life was over and that it wasn't going to work.
In the gymnasium, Juliet is practicing fencing with another White Cat. She knocks the sword out of his hand and is victorious. Scott congratulates her while handing her a towel and tells her she is strong, but she softly says she is not strong enough to change the world yet. Scott is confused, and Juliet dismisses his silent question, saying that it was a silly thought. She says she won't let anyone belittle her, but that Romio was always doing that, and she tears her towel apart in her anger.
Romio is secretly watching, and he is distressed as he hears Juliet talking about him. He looks down and tells himself that their situation is hopeless. Just then, a group of high school White Cats drag a group of elementary school Black Doggies with them. Romio hides as he sees them. They take them to Juliet and say that they found some scum that needed to be taken care of.
Juliet asks what happened, and the White Cat says the Black Doggies were vandalizing the door by their dorm. The Black Doggies said they did it to prove that they weren't weak. The White Cat however, punches the Black Doggy in the face, which enrages Romio, who jumps out of his hiding spot. Juliet tells the Black Doggy he was weak because he didn't even fight back against the White Cat, and the student replies by pushing Juliet.
Juliet smiles a little and says that he did okay, and that fighting back was strength. She then lets him go, and turns to the White Cat, saying that he was pathetic for turning on a couple of kids.
Romio is smitten and thinks that he likes her because of her nobility and charm. He clenches his fists and is determined to confess.
Just then, he realizes all the White Cats are staring at him, and he recalls that he jumped out of hiding to defend the Black Doggy student. Juliet asks him why he is here, and he hurried says that he wasn't there to fight. He attempts to confess at that moment, only to suddenly tell Juliet that she was ugly and runs away.
He runs past Eigo Kohitsuji and Kento Tosa who are sitting on a bench. Eigo says that Juliet was going to show up. They say they are going to destroy Juliet, but need masks to do so. As Juliet runs past them to find Romio, the two go up behind her with paper bags covering their heads and try to hit her, but fail miserably.
They take the bags off their heads, (but not without Juliet calling them stupid). She takes the two of them down with one kick. Maru sneaks up from inside a bush though and sprays pepper spray into her face. He then uses a pocket knife to cut her uniform in half and gags her.
However, Romio jumps over them and tackles Juliet into a bush. He manages to save her, but ends up on top of her. Juliet opens her eyes and sees him, thinking that he was the third attacker and is scared of him. Shes runs away crying without letting Romio explain. Romio dies and thinks that it looked like he was trying to assault her.
At night, Romio punches Maru and his friends, saying that they ruined everything. An arrow with a piece of paper attached is shot into Maru's head. Romio reads the letter. It is from Persia, and it says to meet her by the fountain alone later.
At the fountain, Juliet is holding two swords. Juliet says that if he was her attacker, they would have to duel, but if he was her savior, she would ask why he saved her. Juliet cries and says if he saved her because of sympathy, she couldn't stand being looked down upon.
Romio remembers that the West used something like a feudal system and that Juliet probably had to prove herself worthy because as a female, she couldn't inherit nobility. Romio decides to duel for her. When he strikes the first blow, he asks her out on a date, much to Juliet's shock. She blushes furiously and tells him not to mess around on their important duel.
Romio says that he wasn't fooling around and that he wanted to change the world beside her. Juliet throws him into the fountain and says he is absurd, but she agrees to go out with him but that their relationship must remain the secret.
The next day, Romio greets Juliet but she gives him the cold-shoulder. Romio then realizes that they have to keep up their ruse. Juliet smiles to herself and walks away. Scott and Hasuki continue to fight in the background.
- In this chapter, Romio, Juliet, Hasuki, Scott, Maru, Kento, and Eigo are introduced for the first time.
