Kaoru is a 17-year-old virgin who has an S&M fetish. He has always dreamt about an SM relationship with his childhood friend Nana, who is looked upon as perfect and is always the target of boys' eyes. Their relationship has somewhat deteriorated through the years, due to them hanging out with different people and because Kaoru is not taking his education too seriously.

One day though, Kaoru's mother gives some of his S&M toys to Nana for safekeeping. Nana finds the leather one-piece that Kaoru bought and tries it on but accidentally locks herself in it and doesn't have the key!

Kaoru frees her of the one-piece, but then Nana realizes she may like Kaoru's hobby more than she thought and subsequently the two of them start engaging in so-called "breathers." These breathers are intended to relieve Nana of stress, stress originating from her attempts at keeping her grades and her name perfect.

Enjoyable manga series, please you must read the manga it s fucking awesome. Nana is a very good character and kaoru our lovely dumby protagonist.
Their manga are more especific about erotism and bondage and it can show as a fetichist relationship with romance and comedia at the same time.

Maybe this adaptation is not the best, but at leats it can puts the fetichist as a reason to star the reading. If I should say sometime to convice you I will say that this particular manga has a special feeling and it illustrate a firts bondage or BDSM relationship very well.
It 's starts ...

This was honestly really disappointing. Please do not let this deter you from reading the Manga. The Manga truly is great.

With that out of they way, this anime completely misses the mark on the characters relationship, motovation and even over sexualizes the scenario. You may say, well duh its sexualized, it's about S&M. But truly the Manga does not posses extreme sexual overtones. It's much more about her enduring stress, discovering things about herself, the relief after their "breathers" and the strange yet loving relationship developing between the two childhood friends. I felt that it was very misleading in almost every aspect of the source ...

I do not want to be too judgmental of others sexuality, but I have a very strong sense of duty to protect women and children. Nothing enrages me more than abuse, especially sexual abuse of women and children. So I had a very hard time getting the bad taste out of my mouth from the S&M theme of this show. I gave it a try because the description talks about the relationship being mutual and that the girl enjoys it, so I thought what the heck? I'll never watch 50 shades of gray so maybe this will be like a small taste of that culture. ...
