First-year high school student Sota starts working part time at his family’s bath house as a backwasher, but he’s in for a surprise when fellow classmate Aoi starts frequenting the bath house in disguise and he has to wash her back! Things get even more steamy when she opts for a weight loss massage that borders on ecchi! Will she find out that Sota has been the one washing her? A love comedy between an awkward guy and a girl behind a red curtain begins!
