This single-episode OVA release is about the unlikely partnership between a boxer and a nun. Hatanaka Kosaku is an up-and-comer on the boxing circuit, but what he has in natural ability he lacks in discipline. Before a match, he eats greasy burgers and unhealthy foods: this not only pushes him up into higher weight classes, it also causes him to vomit as soon as he takes a punch to the stomach, ending the match in his opponent's favor every time. Then, an unlikely character enters his life and offers him the hope of becoming a better boxer: a nun in training called Sister Angela. Her guidance seems to be helping Hatanaka's boxing career, but it might be hurting her effort to become a nun.
