Sou Sagara's original light novels center around a second-year high school boy named Yōto Yokodera (played by Yuuki Kaji). Yōto is always thinking about his "carnal desires," but no one acknowledges him as a pervert. He learns about a cat statue that supposedly grants wishes. The boy goes to pray that he will be able to express his lustful thoughts whenever and wherever he wants. At the statue, Yōto encounters Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi (Yui Ogura), a girl from his high school with her own wish — that she would not display her "real intentions" so readily.
