Chapter 1 - Green Monday
The story opens near a school where two students are talking outside. The taller boy asks his friend if they would go out with him. The shorter student slowly backs away, explaining that a relationship would never work between them. After all, he is a boy. Ryo Akizuki gasps as the taller boy proposes getting married. This causes several other boy students to run up to the duo and ask for Ryo's hand in marriage. Overwhelmed and upset, he runs away from the students. The boy thinks back on his childhood and remembers having to constantly remind people he was a boy. Always believing as he matured and got older he would get manlier, Ryo quickly notices that it isn't the case.
Finding the boys were no longer chasing him, Ryo looks into a shop window and sees his reflection. His feminine figure makes him feel uneasy, to the point that he doesn't see a jogger wearing a cap heading straight for him. The two crash into each other and the jogger apologizes for slamming into Ryo. Unfortunately, girls who had been chasing him soon recognize him and scream "MAKOTO!". The man dashes away, followed by his screaming fans. Ryo looks up at a billboard nearby and realizes this "Makoto" is a popular idol and a model for a shoe company. As he reflects about this chance run in with a television star, Ryo comes up with a plan. He has decided to become an idol like Makoto to help him become more manly.
The boy whips out his cell phone and calls his cousin, Ritsuko Akizuki. Not long after, he arrives at the 765 Production office. Ryo speaks to Ritsuko about becoming an idol, only for her to shout in protest. Kotori Otonashi nearly drops her tea as the 765PRO idol realizes Ryo's intentions and admits she doesn't believe he'll succeed as an idol. Even so, Ryo's determined to do his best and Ritsuko agrees to help him. However, she will not allow him to be part of 765 Production. At this point, she hear a small noise behind the door of the conference room door. Ritsuko angrily opens the door to find Haruka Amami, Hibiki Ganaha and the Futami Twins eavesdropping. The older girl chases them away and tells them not to listen in on her conversations.
Later in the evening, Ritsuko and Ryo arrive at a club to see a new idol's debut. They find Manami Okamoto, and she introduces herself as a manager for 876 Production. Unfortunately for Manami, the girl supposed to debut left suddenly and the manager has to find someone to take her place. She asks Ritsuko for a favor, who promptly says no. Then, Manami remembers Ryo and asks him to perform. The flustered boy is convinced by Ritsuko to go onstage and use this as an opportunity. He is then lead to the dressing room to change out of his street clothes. However, he is shocked and left screaming when he is brought back out of the room.
Ritsuko gasps as she sees her cousin in a girl idol's costume.
