Overview

Who loves Mr Nishino?

Minami is the daughter of Mr Nishino's true love.

Bereaved Shiori is tempted by his unscrupulous advances.

His colleague Manami should know better.

His conquest Reiko treasures her independence above all else.

Friends Tama and Subaru find themselves playing Nishino's game, but Eriko loves her cat more.

Sayuri is older, Aichan is much younger, and Misono has her own conquests to make.

For each of them, an encounter with elusive womaniser Mr Nishino will bring torments, desires and delights.
