Flower in a Storm (花に嵐, Hana ni Arashi) is a shōjo romantic comedy manga series by Takagi Shigeyoshi. The series follows Riko, an extraordinarily strong teen girl that is forced into a relationship when the spoiled and wealthy Ran asks her to marry him.
The manga was first published by Hakusensha in LaLa and LaLa DX between 2006 and 2008 and collected in 2 bound volumes. Viz Media announced at Anime Expo 2009 that they had licensed the series with the intent of publishing it in 2010.
The main series follows high school students Riko Kunumi, a young girl with superpowers, and Ran Tachibana, a rich heir. Riko is initially irritated when Ran storms into her classroom stating that he has fallen in love with her and that she should be his bride. She spends much of her time running away from Ran as he pursues her using his vast wealth. The situation is made worse when Ran's fiance appears to claim him and assassins are sent after them.
