In particular was Project “7 SEEDS”, in which five sets of seven gifted young men and women were carefully selected and placed into teams (Spring, Summer A, Summer B, Autumn and Winter). Each participant was then put under cryogenic sleep in hope of preserving the continued existence of mankind.

When those men and women awoke, they found themselves suddenly thrust into a cruel world. While bereft and grieved over forever losing their loved ones, they sought to find ways to survive.

Is this seriously the world of a "game"? If I don't romance one of the yanderes, I will die!?

Before my reincarnation, I was a former delinquent and a top-class brawler nicknamed the "Crimson Rose" or the "Crimson Demon", who had gathered the interest of other delinquents. It's easier to talk with your fists than to talk about love, so naturally, my romance skills are zero.

Despite this, it seems that I have reincarnated as a game's heroine, someone with a family of good standing and a gentle appearance!
In order to protect my life while cooperating with the investigation of the incident, I will try my best to fall in love, but...

The person herself hasn't realized it. Serina, the daughter of an Earl and a former delinquent, is cherished and loved by everyone around her. This is the story of her journey to obtain happiness.
