Why is the English title "So, I Can't Play H!" anyway? Yes, it's one of the ways to translate the original title, but it makes absolutely no sense given the context. I don't think there's a single mention of H games in the thing. "And that's why I can't be a perv" is a much more accurate translation considering the source material.

Can't H be used for sex and sex-like things in general? Futari H doesn't have anything to do with H-games, but that's what it's called in Japanese. Then there's the episode in Captain Tylor called Angel in White' Begins With an H (spoiler[H(エッチ)ではじまる 白衣の天使I]), and it's explained that it's pun because the new nurse is really sexy and is named Harumi. I always thought H was flexible like the word hentai. Sometimes it's used to refer to the material you're viewing, sometimes it's used to refer to a pervy person (Ben-to).

I think the weirdest part is the "Play". So, I Can't Do H makes more sense to me.

I don't know if it was in the original printrun, but the first volume of the manga has that title on the back cover. So its probably a Japanese thing that that title needs to be used.

Ah, the old "Japan can't speak English" problem. Yeah... that makes sense.
