"Show them your A-O face!" As an innocent child, Ao Horie would unhesitantly proclaim the origins of her name. Now that she is in high school, she is determined to study hard in order to one day escape the influence of her lascivious father, a famous erotic author. However, when the amiable Takumi Kijima confesses to Horie, her mind runs wild with scandalous thoughts.

Moans eager to escape, legs crossing, and a warmth spreading through her body, Horie cannot help but misconstrue Kijima's rather pure motivations. To make things worse, no matter how hard she tries to ward off Kijima, his advances do not stop. Now, if only she could just study!

What is love? I think it's a complicated thing, how can someone not be complacent because of that. Some people have experienced this and teenagers are in this complicated situation.

Is the Japanese anime industry in a crisis? To be honest, I also don't know about this but there are several factors that can prove the truth of that opinion. If from my point of view most Japanese anime has a theme that is so simple. What I mean here is why don't they make a masterpiece with a story full of drama? Forget about that, now the anime world read more

Imagine a teenage girl so traumatized by her perverted father that she develops a phobia of men. This girl is brave enough to transform that fear into a positive motivation - to attend an elite college and obtain an independent career where she can support herself in the absence of her family.

But Ao-chan is absolutely not allowed to have that level of agency. Her ambition is instead made secondary to a forced, awkward, unnatural relationship with a popular boy of unreal pureness who is a continual source of anxiety for her. This is to the detriment of her studies that are sacrificed at the read more

Bless the poor souls of those with unfortunate names ever to be bestowed upon them. KimYe named their first daughter North West. Chief Keef named his son “Sno FilmOn Dot Com Cozart” which seems to match his pen game. Hell, what were Jason Lee and Beth Riesgraf drinking when they named their son Pilot Inspektor? But when it comes to names that scar children for life, the heroine of Midara na Ao-chan wa Benkyou ga Dekinai (Ao-chan Can’t Study) gets the flawless victory.

Adapted by Ren Kawahara’s manga of the same name, the story follows the misadventures of the titular protagonist who just wants to study read more

In any typical human non-perverted mind that is constantly filled with Ecchi goodness, I can say that this short is a safe bet between the lines of the "Benkyou ga Dekinai" (or "people can't study") and the rom-com subgenre. Because what you see, an Ecchi WILL ALWAYS be Ecchi, whether subtle or nein.

"Hello, I am Ao Horie, as in...'Show ‘em your A-O-face!'"

Imagine such a parent that would give you SUCH obnoxious names, only to ever silence your future life, in school or be at work. That's our female MC's dear Ero of a dad, likely said the most worrisome dad to ever have, Hanasaki Horie, read more
