Shuffle! is a 24 episode Japanese anime derived from several storylines of an adult visual novel, also known as a dating simulation, of the same name. The anime's story takes place within a fictional universe with regular humans living in perfect harmony alongside gods (who appear as nothing more than humans with pointy ears like an elf) and demons (possessing ears even more pointed than the gods'). Despite the religious nature of both supernatural beings' names, both demons and gods can be caring and kind. A decade before the story takes place, the gods and demons entered society from an opened gateway. Now, students attend the National Verbena Academy.

Shuffle!'s protagonist is is Rin Tsuchimi, a regular 17 year old sophomore at National Verbena Academy who winds up being the object of several girls' affections. Two years after the gateway of the supernatural opened, Rin lost his parents as an outcome of a car crash, also taking the life of fellow human, Kaede Fuyou's, mother. Rin has been living with Kaede ever since. During this time, Rin also becomes friends with Lisianthus (nickname of Sia), princess of the realm of the Gods, and Nerine, princess of the realm of the demons. Although each girl's heritage is not truly known to Rin, he played with each of the girls for a day to cheer them up for being lost; both of the girls went with their fathers on a diplomatic mission.

Flashing forward to the present day, Rin finds that both Lisianthus and Nerine have transfered to National Verbena Academy. The girls explain that they have changed to his school to keep their eyes on him, going on to state that he is destined to marry one of them. This leaves Rin with romantic advances coming from Nerine and Sia, as well as his childhood friend Kaede and another student, the artificial lifeform Primula whose youthful appearance leaves some to consider her a middle school student.
