The Ore wo Suki na no wa Omae Dake ka yo ~Ore-tachi no Game Set~ (ORESUKI: Are you the only one who loves me?: Game Over) OVA serves as a conclusion to the television anime series. The OVA's story centers on the protagonist Jorō, an ordinary male high school student, and Hose, a "perfect human" who can do anything.
In the romantic comedy series, Amatsuyu Kirasagi is invited out alone by the cool beauty upperclassman Cosmos and his childhood friend Himawari. Expecting to hear their confessions, he triumphantly goes to meet each of them in turn. But Cosmos and Himawari both instead confess to Amatsuyu that they like his friend. Amatsuyu fights this lonely battle, but there is another girl who is looking at him. She is a gloomy girl with glasses and braids. Amatsuyu finds that he hates her, because she's always turning her sharp tongue only on him and finding enjoyment in his troubles. But it turns out that she's the only one who actually does like him.
