Two years ago Junichi Tachibana got stood up for the biggest date of his life which left him traumatized. But now Junichi’s opening up to the idea of getting a new girlfriend. Throughout the series he has many love interests from the quirky school idol Haruka, to the rough and tough Kaoru Tanamachi all the way to the shiest girl in the school. It looks like Junichi is more than making up for lost time as he tries to woo several of the cutest and craziest girls on campus!
Junichi has spent two years dwelling on a date that never happened. But now there's a new girl in his life. After bumping into Kaoru Morishima, he can't stop thinking about her. Based on her flirting, he suspects that she reciprocates his feelings. He musters all his courage to do the hardest thing imaginable: ask her out!
Feeling lonely and dejected, Junichi visits the school infirmary where he runs into Haruka. They decide to be friends and create all kinds of mischief. They quickly form a close bond, and Junichi values her friendship, but he has to fight the urge to tell her how much he loves her!
Haruka is jealous of the attention Junichi is getting from the ladies. Taking Hibiki's advice, Haruka allows Junichi to spoil her. Much to her surprise, she is delighted by the attention and the fun she has with him.
Junichi and Haruka have come to realize that they met each other for the first time a year ago at the local park. Both had been brooding over sad events in their lives but felt better after meeting each other. For the past year, they’ve held onto those memories dearly.
Junichi and Kaoru have been buddies ever since middle school. Kaoru loves teasing Junichi and pretending that they’re a goofy couple. The teasing gets a little too carried away and Kaoru winds up punching Junichi, knocking him to the floor. With Kaoru standing over him, he gets a full view of her panties. Now Kaoru’s starting to feel self-conscious whenever she’s around Junichi.
Junichi breaks up a fight between Kaoru and one of the boys in class. During a meaningful discussion between Junichi and Kaoru, a playful act turns into a kiss between the pair, which leaves Kaoru furious.
After seeing her mother with a man she's never met, Kaoru ditches school. Worried about his friend, Junichi cuts class to look for her. Once found, Kaoru reveals that her mother is considering getting remarried and starting a new life. The whole scenario is unthinkable, but after a heart-to-heart with Junichi, she is much more willing to listen to her mother.
With Christmas just around the corner, it’s past time for Junichi to ask Kaoru if she’ll spend Christmas Eve with him. He knows time is of the essence, but he just can’t bring himself to ask. Luckily for him, he has two very understanding friends. Keiko and Masayoshi set up the perfect environment for asking an old friend out on a romantic date.
After finding Junichi's lost wallet, the nervous and shy Sae Nakata returns it to him. After a proper introduction, Junichi discovers that Sae wants to work as a waitress, but she is too shy to get through the interview process. He takes on the role of Instructor to help her train for the job.
Junichi is going all-out to help Sae prepare for her job interview. From speed changing to a unique mock interview, everything manages to take on an erotic tinge. Sae goes to Junichi’s house for more training, and Miya asks if they can play a board game that oddly simulates real life.
Sae’s training draws to an end, and she goes to the dreaded job interview. All of their hard work has paid off, for Sae managed to get the job! Sae asks Junichi out on a date at an amusement park, where they enter the Best Couple Contest.
At long last, it’s time for the Founder’s Festival! Sae has prepared a beautiful wedding dress and tux for the Best Couple Contest. Even though everyone in the audience is awe-struck by Junichi and Sae, they get second place. The prize is two tickets in a private booth at the movie theatre. Junichi wants to tell Sae how he feels for her, but he’s afraid of what might happen if she turns him down.
Junichi catches a glimpse of Ai Nanasaki’s undies as she jumps off her swing. Ai is quick to accuse him of sexual harassment. After pathetic attempts to explain his innocence, Ai finally announces that she was just joking. Even after the peril she causes him, Junichi manages to see the good in her.
If Ai doesn’t pass an upcoming math test, she’ll have to take extra math classes and quit the swim team. Luckily for Ai, Junichi is surprisingly good in math and is willing to offer a helping hand. The two become closer during the lessons.
Ai and Junichi spend the day at a theme park. It may seem like any old theme park, but the Pharaoh’s Mystery horror house is rather unique. The evil pharaoh transforms Ai into a bowel of ramen! When Junichi asks the pharaoh to turn her back, he sprays a mist on Junichi that brainwashes him. Now the only thought on his mind is how delicious Ai looks!
Ai and Junichi are manning the Girl’s Swim Team oden stall at the Founder’s Festival. They must prove to the Tea Club that they have mastered the traditional oden flavoring. Once the festival is over, Ai takes Junichi to a secret warm spring in the mountains. At long last, the two are finally able to admit their feelings for one another.
On one cold morning Rihoko decides to take a shortcut to school. All she has to do is slide through a hole in the fence and she’ll make it to class on time. Unfortunately, Rihoko is just pudgy enough that she can’t quite get through. Determined to get through the hole in the fence without needing help, Rihoko decides to resume her diet. But it can be hard keeping a diet when there’s so many good snacks everywhere…
Rihoko, Junichi and some of their friends go ice-skating to get some exercise while having fun, but Rihoko can't skate to save her life. While trying to help her out, Junichi accidentally gets a grab at Rihoko’s breast. Now he’s starting to realize just how womanly she’s become.
With the Founder’s Festival and Christmas over, next up is New Year’s Eve! Rihoko gathers up all of her courage and asks Junichi if he’ll visit the local shrine with her. While there, Rihoko makes a few wishes: that her diet will be a success, that she’ll find a new member for the Tea Club, and that Junichi will realize how she feels.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and Rihoko is making chocolate creams. She still believes that story Ruriko told her about how people used to give choux creams as a present when proposing to their beloved. Despite her hopes to finally get through to Junichi, he’s too dense to catch on.
Junichi wants to overcome his trauma from Christmas Eve two years back and enjoy the Founder’s Festival this year. So when it comes time to selecting festival committee members, Junichi volunteers for the job. Tsukasa Ayatsuji, one of Junichi’s classmates, gets voted as Festival Committee Director. He comes to realize just how wonderful she is... until he finds her day planner on the floor…
When Tsukasa sees Junichi holding her day planner, she’s convinced he saw something he shouldn’t have. Tsukasa shows her true colors as she threatens to get Junichi kicked out of school if he ever tells anyone about what has transpired. To assure Junichi can’t pull any funny business, Tsukasa keeps him busy with committee work. Despite her mean side, Junichi is attracted to how hard working she is.
The Founder’s Festival is drawing near and it doesn’t look like everything is going to be done in time. Tsukasa is working day and night trying to get as much done as possible, but she needs more help. Junichi suggests they get their classmates to help. Tsukasa must swallow her pride and ask everyone to pitch in.
It’s Christmas Eve and that means it’s time for the Founder’s Festival. Thanks to everyone’s hard work and help it's a huge success. Everyone seems bright and happy as they welcome the holiday, or at least almost everyone… Junichi isn’t sure what to think of Tsukasa’s sudden change in personality.
One day Junichi receives a love letter from Risa Kamizaki, a girl he has never met before. Despite his initial hesitancy to go out with this strange yet adorable girl, Risa’s earnest feelings for him convince him to give the thumbs up. Junichi is eager to tell his friends about his new girlfriend, but Risa isn’t so keen on the idea. One of the conditions she has for dating Junichi is that he can’t tell anyone about her.
Miya is concerned that if Junichi can’t find a girlfriend, he’s going to lead a horrible life. But when she consults with Ai and Sae, they seem to think he’s a pretty cool guy. Obviously Miya’s image of her brother isn’t quite matching up with her friends’ image of him. Determined to find out why Ai and Sae think so highly of Junichi, Miya spends the day spying on him.
