But as the day of her "big sisters" Sae and Hiro's graduation draws slowly closer, it's time for Yuno to start seriously taking on the same role for Nazuna, Nori and the other budding young artists who've entered Hidamari's protective cocoon. And it's also time to tackle some really challenging artistic assignments. That doesn't mean there won't still be time for fun with Miyako and all the others, but it's definitely time to pencil in her plans for the future.

Oh, and to have a lot of sex too. That's exactly what happens when a girl named Nir shows up and gives Naoya the rules and a stack of free sex vouchers. That certainly doesn't suck! Or, actually, with his free vouchers, that's on the table too… With everyone from his teachers to the girl giving out free samples on the corner as possible "game pieces," Naoya's going to have a long, hard and very probing time ahead of him as he seeks to prove that he's the KING OF BREASTS!

When the cost of that path becomes apparent, will the two of them be willing to pay the price for a true happy ending? Even if it's achieved, how long can it last in a world where Mirai's mere existence is seen as a lethal threat?
