During his stay he becomes his savior's manservant and the gym's referee trainee.
Kenn's Comment: To describe this series in as few words as possible, I shall quote a user on Animesuki forums.

Irenicus: Love Hina with pro wrestling.
Yep. That's essentially what this is. Though, I have to say that it's less similar to Love Hina as Ai Kora was. Holy crap that thing was almost made of the same thing. Set up and execution are different, with the only similarity being the group composition and chemistry. The characters are fun and all have their quirks (Ouka is a bit rough though), and the underlying story of Tadasuke's memory loss always pops in and out of the running referee story. Haven't read too much of it, so I can't really say whether it's explored much, but it does have my interest for sure. Looking forward to seeing how this one turns out.
