"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!

She goes through such unrealistic thought processes and behaves so awkardly. It just goes on and on and constantly reminds you how ridiculously cliche it is, it gets hard to gloss over it and find it amusing. It just gets frustrating seeing it go on and never really progress. Like who is she ...

Imagine a teenage girl so traumatized by her perverted father that she develops a phobia of males. 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 family.

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