Yuta Togashi is a high school freshman who wishes to forget his fantasies as the "Dark Flame Master".
Yuta Togashi's history was normal for the most part. He had two younger sisters, a family unit even though his father was constantly on overseas business trips, and grew up in an apartment block in Japan. Things began to change though in his second year of middle school when he developed his own case of "eighth grader syndrome" as Yuta believed himself to be the powerful Dark Flame Master; a persona who would take over the world and break reality. In truth, Yuta began to adopt mannerisms to his character, including alienating most people in middle school and acting like a complete nut case.
Two years later, when Yuta is getting ready to transfer to high school, he takes it upon himself to reflect about the persona he created. Utterly embarrassed he vows to start anew by signing up for a high school where no one would know him so he could wipe the slate clean of the Dark Flame Master. Packing up all of his belongings that were associated with the image, Yuta looks forward to starting at Ginkgo High School where he could be a normal kid.
