How Masato Became a Butler
The Kashima family and Fukumoto family have been long-time friends, going back all the way to their great-great-grandparents. Masato and Tomoka's fathers have been friends. 5-years-ago, the Kashima company went bankrupt and the Fukumoto family agreed to help the Kashima family keep up appearances; letting them live the life of luxury and allowing Masato to stay at Minwa Academy. But, in exchange, the Kashima family had to serve under the Fukumoto family. For that day on, Masato became the butler of Tomoka Fukumoto.
Meeting Imari Suzukawa
Without realizing it, Masato met Imari a year before the start of the series. He was a second-year student at Minwa Academy. At this time, Masato couldn't care less about anything and hated things like responsibility, not wanted the stress or complication. With the school year coming to an end, the Student Council President, Hayate Nagatsuka, desires Masato to take his place next year and become the new Student Council President. At first, Masato declines, not wanting to have to deal with that kind of responsibility. Pondering this, Masato walks home from school and stumbles upon a girl up in a tree. She falls and lands right on him. Frustered by the girl's strange behavior, Masato asks why she was up in a tree to begin with. The girl said she was trying to help a baby bird who fell out of its nest. Masato shrugs it off, thinking it's stupid that she put herself in danger just to save a bird. The girl gets made at him and tells him he is their future and need to care and care about every life, big and small. Although he never got her name or face due to her overgrown bangs, that girl changed Masato and his life forever.
