Office worker Yoshida has been crushing on his coworker, Airi Gotou, for five years. Despite finally scoring a date with her, his confession is promptly rejected. Drunk and disappointed, he stumbles home, only to find a high school girl sitting on the side of the road. The girl, needing a place to stay the night, attempts to seduce Yoshida. Despite rejecting her advances, he nevertheless invites her into his apartment. The next morning, the girl, introducing herself as Sayu Ogiwara, reveals that she has run away from Hokkaido all the way to Tokyo. During her six-month spree, she continually traded sexual favors for a roof over her head. Yoshida, however, remains unswayed by her seduction. Instead, he has her do a different kind of work—one that entails washing dishes and doing laundry. And so, a touching relationship between a heartbroken adult and a runaway high school girl begins.

After being rejected, MC does the next logical thing, and becomes a sugar daddy. Albiet totally wholesome, and with none of the creepy shit.


I think, this has good chance to be great anime, but we will see


Guy with common sense and proper values takes in a runaway JK and acts as her guardian, instead of exploiting her. Kitsu weirdos creep out..





    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
