R-15

Premieres July 9th

Introduction

In print since July of 2007, "R-15" is the debut series from Hiroyuki Fushimi that won the Encouragement Prize at the Sneaker Awards for novels sponsored by Kadokawa Shoten's Sneaker Collection light novel series.
The popular series is set at a high school, and saw its 7th volume go on sale in April of 2011. The hero Taketo finds himself surrounded by a veritable harem of attractive heroines, including a clarinet prodigy (with a natural Lolita complex!), a vocal virtuoso and school idol (the good girl who's just a wee bit naughty!), a caustic yet lovestruck photographic genius!

All of the characters reveal more of their charms in each story on their journey of growth as they overcome the challenges faced by high school students!

Story

Taketo Akutagawa is a high school student, but also a genius author of erotica with a serial in a newspaper. His ability finds him accepted into an exclusive private school that takes only students with ‘special’ talents (natural geniuses?)! From the clarinet to mathematics and hacking, Taketo is surrounded by overwhelming genius on all sides, and his erotic imagination knows no bounds, which leads to some risque naughtiness, but perhaps also to love…
