"ME AND MY GIRL"
It is 1930s London. Due to the passing of the Earl of Hareford, his younger sister, Duchess Maria of Dene (Ayaka Osaki / Ayase Senna), is administering his household's affairs. In his will the Earl made his only son his heir, but that son is the late Earl's illegitimate child whose whereabouts have been unknown for many years now. Cedric Parchester (Mayu Otori / Rei Yuzuka), the Hareford family's barrister, goes in search of him. He determines that a young man named William (Bill) Snibson (Rio Asumi), living in Lambeth, a district of central London, is the heir and summons him.
The Duchess' niece, Lady Jacqueline (Jackie) Carstone (Rei Yuzuka / An Hozuki), and her fiancé Gerald Bolingbroke (Maito Minami / Toa Serika) are unsettled to hear this news as they had had designs on the Hareford fortune.
The family hastily assembles to hear the Duchess explain the situation. She and Sir John Tremayne (Toa Serika / Kazuya Seto) become the executors of the will who shall judge whether the heir is a suitable one for the Hareford family, and only then will allow him to inherit the Earl's title and fortune. However, the heir who appears before them is an ill-mannered Cockney speaking young man. The astonished Duchess decides to have Bill educated in etiquette so he will not be an embarrassment to the dignified House of Hareford as its heir. Then, with the ulterior motive of gaining his favor, Jackie volunteers to instruct Bill and attempts to seduce him. Bill, however, has a lover: Sally Smith (Maria Kano). At first Sally is honestly delighted to join the Hareford family with Bill, but the more she learns about the situation, the more she comes to believe she should distance herself from Bill so as not to ruin this golden opportunity for him.
Meanwhile, the Duchess and Sir John, the executors of the will, continue with Bill's lessons on being a member of the nobility...
