With the arrival of summer and the school break, Chizuru, Kota, and the rest of their friends are lazily enjoying the warm weather. Chizuru flirts with Kota, Kota gets embarrassed, and Nozomu gets in the way. Tayura pines after Akane, Akane rebuffs Tayura, and a sexy good time ensues. The status quo isn't quite the same since the fox snared her prey, but the timeless boy-meets-girl tale lingers on.

Not with this one, actually. Of course you're going to have the same basic principle of that it IS a borderline hentai rom/com/ecchi that is ...

Hooray for boobies! Kanokon has returned to assault our senses and kill brain cells with its ridiculous story and characters. Chances are if you really liked the original then the boobs and fan service will be just more for you to love. Though if you hated it, then there is nothing here to make you change your mind.

The OVA retains the spirit of the original, as far as being a borderline hentai, however while the first series at least had a rudimentary storyline this has basically no plot at all. Most of the time specials and OVA's that spinoff a full ...
