Butlers: Chitose Momotose Monogatari will revolve around two leads: Koma “Jay” Jinguji, and Tsubasa Hayakawa. Jinguji is the student council president. And, as expected, he’s smart, he’s elegant, and he’s able to capture the hearts of women with but a simple smile. Hayakawa, meanwhile, is a multi-talented café assistant. His claim to fame is his latte art, particularly of owls, for which he’s become quite popular with female patrons.
Jay is also a member of a clan of mystical guardians whose history stretches back more than a thousand years. He lives with his sister Tenna, along with their butler Tsubasa Hayakawa. One day, a distortion in the space-time continuum hits their family home. Tenna mysteriously vanishes, and Jay is thrust a hundred years in the future. Apparently, a high school known as Koyomi Academy was built on the site of Jay’s ancestral home. And, being a TV show protagonist, he enrolls there in hopes of finding answers. As he seeks answers to restoring the natural order, Jay is reunited with Hayakawa, who now makes ends meet by working at a Butler café.
