Because of the sexual content the series was one of the manga placed on Harmful manga lists by local and national governmental agencies. The negative publicity resulted in Kodansha discontinuing the series.
The story focuses on Yusuke Yamamoto, the son of two gynaecologists. As a child, he was almost castrated by two neighbours, which is why he's afraid of women. Also as a child, he saved two twin sisters from an attacking dog. They grow up with a dream that turns Yusuke's life upside down. At the beginning of the story, they appear at the home of Yusuke. His father invites the young women in, to live with them, hoping they'll heal his son's gynophobia. The therapeutic benefits of this intended treatment aren't entirely clear from the series of, sexually tinted, events that unfold.

Writing a review for Asian Trash Cinema, Jim McLennan observed about the first part of the video adaptation: “The delight of this episode is its sheer, unrelenting, cheerful tackiness. Yes the girls are utter airheads but charges of sexism must be partly countered by the fact that the original manga was created by a woman, Junko Uemura. In addition, Yusuke is just as socially inadequate in his way, which is doubly amusing given that he is a parody of the likely intended target audience.”
