Jouji Gouda is a new transfer student at Hakuryo High. He fell in love at first sight and boldly proposed to Akane Suzumiya, representative of his class, on his first day at the new school.
Later in the series, he falls for Kagami Sumika after she gives him her handkerchief only to find out that she is best friends with Shirogane Takeru. He later sees a limousine drive upon him to find another beautiful woman, Mitsurugi Meiya who wishes to talk about his 2nd transfer out of school. This later results in the start of Muv-Luv where Gouda transfers out of Hakuryou and Meiya takes his seat next to Shirogane Takeru.
