SYNOPSIS: Junichi Tachibana hasn’t exactly been lucky in love, but was that because there’s something fundamentally wrong with him, or simply because he wasn’t trying hard enough? How many girls could he have struck up a meaningful relationship with if he’d done the right things, said the right words? The answer has yet to be unveiled as new versions of Junichi’s prospective romantic future continue to appear. One boy and a whole lot of different girlfriends to be: if it sounds like wishful thinking, it is. But wishes have a habit of coming true, so the odds are definitely on Junichi’s side!

Then, four people awake to find themselves in the ultimate prison: an ex-soldier, a beautiful woman, an average Joe and a young computer hacker. Why are they there? What connection links them all? And how can they escape? The answer seems to lie with the fifth prisoner, an old man who knows far more than he is telling. And then there’s the cat.
