The "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat. (Japanese: 変態王子と笑わない猫。 Hepburn: Hentai Ōji to Warawanai Neko.?), also known by the shorthand HenNeko (変猫。?)[1] and Towanai (とわない?),[2] is a Japanese light novel series written by Sou Sagara and illustrated by Kantoku. Media Factory has published eight volumes since October 2010. It was adapted into a manga series in 2011 and a 12-episode anime television series by J.C.Staff, which aired between April and June 2013. The anime is licensed by Sentai Filmworks in North America.

Plot[edit]

Yōto Yokodera is a second-year high school student who is arguably the biggest pervert at school. His problem is that he is not good at showing his real emotions. One day, his equally perverted best friend completely transforms and gets rid of his "impure thoughts"; a feat he attributes to the power of the statue of the "Stony Cat". As the rumors suggest, by wishing upon the statue and giving it an offering, one can wish to remove a personality trait from themselves that one does not wish to have anymore. However, this will remove the unwanted trait and give it to someone who does need it.

As Yōto is making his offering to the statue, a girl named Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi arrives to make her wish to be able to be more like an adult and not show her emotions so easily. Both of them wish upon the stony cat and to their surprise the next day at school, Yōto is unable to tell a single lie, and Tsukiko is unable to show any sign of emotion whatsoever. After realizing that they do not like the change that happened, they work together to try and find out who has received their trait that was taken away in order to get it back. They meet Azusa Azuki, an attractive second-year girl who has just transferred into their school. She is always being confessed to by many boys in school, but she has no friends and is always alone. Yōto finds out that Azusa is the one that received his unwanted personality trait and tries to get it back.

Characters[edit]

Yōto Yokodera (横寺 陽人 Yokodera Yōto?)
Voiced by: Yūki Kaji
Yōto is the main protagonist and a second-year in high school. He is portrayed to be secretly a huge pervert yet he cannot express his inner self truly because his deeds are always misunderstood, due to being unable to say what's on his mind. He even claims that he joined the athletics club so he can see girls in swimsuits, but even that is misunderstood due to his actions. So he heads one night to the Stony Cat statue to wish for it to take away his façade, since it's getting in the way to life freely. However, it isn't until he wishes on the Stony Cat statue to stop lying, stop putting up a front, and stop dodging questions that causes him to get into trouble. It seems that the Stony Cat statue granted his wish, but granting it precisely as he wished it. So for a time, he loses his 'façade' (tatemae) to the Stony Cat statue (by given it to someone else who needs it), which he later recovers it back from Azusa (who had gain it), but during the time without his façade, he openly speaks everything on his mind, including all of his perverted thoughts, causing him to receive the nickname the 'Pervert Prince'.
As a child, he had given up his memories for the Tsutsukakushi sisters. Though over time, he becomes closer to Tsukiko, Azusa, and Tsukushi.
Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi (筒隠 月子 Tsutsukakushi Tsukiko?)
Voiced by: Yui Ogura
Tsukiko is a first-year student at Yōto's high school. She tends to quickly lose her temper and be a crybaby, showing her emotions so easily, so she goes upon to the Stony Cat statue and wishes to change, to become more mature and less open with her emotions. As a result, she has become unable to express any emotions on her face, regardless of what she is trying to say. The Stony Cat statue had taken her words literally, in not wanting to show her emotions on her face.
She sometimes calls Yōto a pervert when he says or does something perverted. Overall, she develops feelings for Yōto and hopes for an advantage over others who know him. Despite being unable to show her emotions, she makes some easily noticeable actions, such as stalking Yōto and recording his daily life, and trying to gain an upper hand when chatting with Azusa about their relationship with Yōto.
Azusa Azuki (小豆 梓 Azuki Azusa?)
Voiced by: Kaori Ishihara
Azusa is a second-year high school student and a very popular girl, even for being flat-chested. She is always alone and turns down all confessions of love she receives. She likes animals, and tends to frequently include bizarre animal similes in conversation. When flustered, her speech changes. As a result of Yōto's wish on the Stony Cat statue, she temporarily possesses Yōto's former trait of being unable to express her honest feelings. While she pretends to be a rich elite, she actually lives in a small apartment and keeps several jobs in a neighboring town to be able to afford the act. Before she transferred, she was feeling outcast and bullied in her old school; this ultimately led to her losing trust in people. After she gave back Yōto's façade, she shows more of herself and also befriends Morii and Moriya from her old school. She starts to show feelings toward Yōto after she returns his façade.
Tsukushi Tsutsukakushi (筒隠 つくし Tsutsukakushi Tsukushi?)
Voiced by: Yukari Tamura
Tsukushi is Tsukiko's older sister and the president of the track and field club, often referred to as the "Steel King" (鋼鉄の王 Kōtetsu no Ō?). In the beginning of the story, she admires Yōto for his eagerness to join the club, and even believes him to act as a pervert because he is under too much pressure. She is deeply in love with her little sister Tsukiko, to the point that she wants to marry her. Believing in one of Yōto's lies, she thinks that the one involved with her little sister is actually his "younger identical twin", which he has none. She eventually falls in love with "Yōto's brother", which still unaware of the truth, she decides to allow "him" to marry both her and her little sister by moving all of them to a place where polygamy is legal.
Emi (エミ?) / Emanuela Pollarola (エマヌエーラ・ポルラローラ Emanuēra Porurarōra?)
Voiced by: Aimi Terakawa
Emi is a young Italian girl who Yōto met in the past. Due to a wish on the Stony Cat statue, she temporarily acts as Ponta's sister who came back from Italy.

Other characters[edit]

Ponta (ポン太?)

Tsukasa was the mother of Tsukiko and Tsukushi, who died when they were young due to an infection caused by a flood. She was very nice, although she sounded sometimes mean. Following her husband's death, she had her daughters to move and live with her husband's parents in Italy due to her poor health. This caused a rift to form between her and her daughter Tsukushi, who believed that her mother had abandoned her and Tsukiko. While living alone, Tsukasa handmade clothes for Tsukiko and Tsukushi, and took care of Yōto, who would keep her company. Tsukasa was eventually reunited with her daughters prior to her death.

01 "The Pervert and the Stony Cat"
"Hentai-san to Warawanai Neko" (変態さんと笑わない猫) 
April 13, 2013
Yōto Yokodera, a perverted schoolboy, winds up being nominated as the track and field club's president by Tsukushi Tsutsukakushi due to his inability to be honest about his perverted nature. Later that day, his friend tells him about a statue known as the 'stony cat' that allegedly granted his wish to remove his impure thoughts. Wanting to be more honest with his feelings, Yōto travels up to the hill where the stony cat lies, where he meets a girl named Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi, who also wants to wish on the stony cat so her emotions will not show easily. As they both make their wishes, a sudden flash happens, and the two of them discovers one of their belongings they had brought, a belt and a meat bun, have disappeared, but they do not think much of it. The next day, as Yōto comes across a popular transfer student Azusa Azuki, he finds himself openly stating his perverted thoughts to her, earning him the title of the "pervert prince" among his classmates. He later comes across Tsukiko, who has suddenly found herself unable to show any emotion, coming to realize this is the work of the stony cat. Realizing they need to find the people who their traits were transferred to and convince them to wish them back to their original owners, another bashful encounter leads them to deduce that Azusa now possesses Yōto's trait of holding in his true feelings. Putting this to the test, Yōto puts on a public scene of wishing to become Azusa's loyal dog, which causes Azusa, unable to go against the urge to hide her honesty, to ultimately give in.

"Yōsei-san wa Okoranai" (妖精さんは怒らない) 
April 20, 2013
As Yōto takes Tsukiko to an animal café to discuss their next move, they coincidentally discover that Azusa is working part-time as a maid. They intend to approach Azusa following her shift, but are forced to flee when they are reprimanded by a janitor for taking shelter from the rain near a love hotel. However, they soon find her working at yet another part-time job, later discovering she lives alone in an apartment. After Yōto confronts Azusa about this, he asks her on a date to get her away from work, with Tsukiko deciding to follow them. However, Azusa is less than happy with Yōto's choices for date venues, so Tsukiko steps in and they instead take her to an arcade game center, where Tsukiko wins Azusa a stuffed turtle. Despite managing to get along, Azusa gets a bit upset when Yōto brings up the topic of friends. Just then, the track and field president and Tsukiko's older sister, Tsukushi, shows up, forcing Yōto and Tsukiko to flee when she inquires about their 'date'. When they return to the game center, they discover Azusa being tormented by some girls from her old school, leaving her cold towards Yōto and Tsukiko, believing them to have strung her along.

After failing to get Azusa to talk to him, Yōto goes up to the hill, where the stony cat lies, to talk to Tsukiko about Azusa in the night on the same day. The next day, Yōto confronts her former classmates, Morii and Moyama, over what happened in the arcade game center. They had apparently teased her at her old school due to skipping it a lot, telling her their class was going on a field trip to Hokkaido when they were actually going to Okinawa, which led to her becoming distrustful of others. After hearing this, Yōto takes Azusa to the stony cat, telling her about his facade that she acquired and stating his sincere wish to become her true friend. After coming to understand his feelings, Azusa wishes on the stony cat, returning her facade to Yōto. Meanwhile, Tsukiko recalls the time when Yōto once gave her advice on how to get along with children in a dream. After showing Yōto a story presentation based on this encounter, which does not ring a bell for him, Tsukiko explains that she does not get along with Tsukushi and she believes her sister hates her.

"Kiraku na Ō no Taoshikata" (気楽な王の斃し方) 
May 4, 2013
Tsukiko explains that she feels her clingy behavior drove Tsukushi away from her, which led to her making the wish on the stony cat. As Yōto tries to ask Tsukushi about this, she tells him she was the one who made the stony cat as a way of apology to Tsukiko following an argument. The next day, Tsukiko asks Yōto to help her shop for costumes for her performances with the children. Later that night, Yōto encounters Tsukushi, who states that she wants to get rid of her sisterly bonds with Tsukiko and does not believe her lack of expressions to be related to the stony cat. Afterwards, Tsukiko expresses her concerns that if she were to get her expressions back, there would be nothing connecting her to Yōto. Earnestly wanting to help Tsukiko, Yōto gets Azusa's help and calls out Tsukushi to the stony cat. There, he asks the stony cat to take away his urge to run away in exchange for his underwear. He announces that he loves Tsukiko as his little sister, leading to Tsukushi to reveal that she does love Tsukiko, albeit in a romantic way and that she wants to cut off their sisterly bonds so that they can get married in Massachusetts, a dream that is quickly shot down by Tsukiko. Tsukushi then calls out to the stony cat, who returns the meat bun containing Tsukiko's expressions, but Tsukiko decides to give it to Tsukushi instead. Some time afterwards, as the stony cat's power has apparently disappeared and Tsukiko has been rather cold towards him, Yōto is shocked to discover his house has suddenly disappeared.

As Yōto asks for Tsukiko's help in determining the whereabouts of his house, Azusa becomes frustrated, having gone with Morii and Moyama to Okinawa expecting Yōto to show up as well, when he had just arranged it so they can make up. With rain settling in, Tsukiko invites Yōto to stay the night, which leads to various awkward situations when Tsukushi comes home as he comes out of the bath. While attempting to break free from a sleeping Tsukushi's grasp later that night, Yōto hears her sleep talking about her fears of Tsukiko leaving her. Meanwhile, in Okinawa, Morii suddenly collapses with a slight fever, but is helped by Azusa and Moyama. After Morii recovers, she and Azusa apologize to each other and reaffirm their friendship. Back at the Tsutsukakushi household, as Yōto hides inside the building to avoid the wrath of Tsukushi after walking in on Tsukiko naked, he discovers in their storehouse, among his house's belongings, a large stony cat statue.

May 18, 2013
On the last night of summer vacation, Tsukiko finds Yōto sleeping in their storage room. Yōto explains that the storage room has everything found in his house and he believes the cat statue has to do something with it. The next day, Yōto asks Tsukushi about the cat statue and she tells him it is a god which their family worships. Tsukushi asks Yōto a favor to trick his "twin brother" so they can kill him, but Yōto says that Tsukiko would be sad so she must first find a way to discourage Tsukiko from liking Yōto's "twin brother". Later that night while he is in the storehouse, Azusa calls him and asks him why he did not call her and if he wants to see Azusa in her swimsuit. While talking on the phone, he says that he wishes to see Azusa in her swimsuit and she suddenly falls on top of Yōto. Later that evening after dinner, Yōto explains to Tsukiko what happened and tells her that the cat god must have been the cause. Tsukiko feels guilty and apologizes, and says that she only wished to be together with Yōto. Near bedtime while Yōto is thinking about something, Tsukushi barges in and tries to seduce Yōto in an attempt to discourage Tsukiko. In their conversation, Yōto finds out that Tsukushi only did it for Tsukiko because she was afraid that Yōto would take her away and leave her. In the heat of conversation, she wishes that the world fall into ruins, and in an instant the cat god grants her wish and the entire building comes crushing down leaving a scene of devastation.

May 25, 2013
After Yōto and Tsukushi come out from the building, the storm slowly gets stronger and Yōto suspects that Tsukushi's wish caused it. They start to move important objects to the upper level of the house in the room where Tsukushi keeps her sister's photos. Tsukiko responds by tearing down the photos. Yōto goes downstairs to carry the TV and sees Tsukiko's parents' altar and offers his prayers and thanks their daughters for their hospitality. Tsukushi comes in and comments that it is not often that people would bow before someone else's altar and thanks Yōto for praying. All of them get bored after they finish moving the important items. Tsukiko then suggests to play a card game. Later, Yōto learns that the 'storm' was wished by somebody the house and realizes the wish that Tsukushi canceled only affected the storeroom itself. Yōto confronts Tsukiko after asking Azusa to help him to make Tsukushi leave the room. After being confronted by Yōto, Tsukiko cancels her wish and the storm subsides immediately. After the incident, Yōto shows Tsukushi that his 'brother' does not exist, but Tsukushi does not believe him and confesses to "Yōto's brother". She tells him that she intends to marry both him and her sister, and kisses Yōto on the cheek. Azusa sees this and immediately runs off to the Tsutsukakushi house to make a wish onto the stony cat in the storeroom.

Emi later discovers that Yōto is considered a huge pervert in their school and suddenly wishes upon her miniature cat statue to turn Yōto popular and their school more enjoyable. The outcome of Emi's wish turns their school's architecture to into ancient Rome, and the girls wear swimsuits as uniforms while addressing Yōto as "Prince". Tsukiko later blames Yōto as the maker of the wish and prompts him to cancel it immediately. Tsukushi, on the other hand, sides with Yōto in order for her to show off her good side to Yōto's "evil-twin brother". Afterwards, at Yōto's house, as Tsukushi scavenges pictures of Yōto's "twin", Yōto realizes something about Emi, as Ponta's "little sister" is actually his pet rabbit.

June 8, 2013
Yōto is on his way to school, still bothered by Emi's wishes and Tsukiko's cold behavior towards him, and along the way he meets Ponta, who informs him that his rabbit has gone missing.

Emi and Tsukiko have a swimming contest in which the result is a draw, and after the contest Emi cancels her wish for all the girls in the school to wear swimsuits. Ponta later reclaims his lost rabbit thanks to Azusa's efforts and remembers Emi's and Yōto's close relationship, much to Yōto's bewilderment. The following morning, Emi cancels all her wishes after badmouthing Yōto, who later realizes that not all of Emi's wishes were lifted, with parts of the school still looking Italian. Tsukushi reveals to Yōto that she is transferring to Italy. Suddenly, Emi is seen contemplating suicide at the top of the school's tower. Azusa tells Yōto how to get to the top of the tower and he speaks to Emi to appease their situation. Yōto and Emi discover that Azusa is being possessed by the cat god after Azusa's wish of becoming a new person. The cat god explains that it was all Yōto's wish of turning their school into Italy from the start and that Emi is only a minor tool for its fulfillment. Initially, Emi wishes for the cat god to go to hell, which would take Azusa's body along with it and the cat god tells Yōto he can spare Azusa by cancelling his wishes, sacrificing Emi for Azusa. Instead, Yōto forcibly kisses Azusa, removing her from the cat god's control while canceling Yōto's wish and sparing Emi in the end.

"Ichiban Nagai to Iu Koto" (一番長いということ)

Later, Yōto finds Tsukiko lamenting in his room as she hides inside Yōto's hug pillow but is later found out by Yōto himself. Tsukiko later leaves Yōto's room after realizing that Yōto met Emi long before she did, despite her earlier claims that she was the one who knew Yōto the longest. Yōto finds airline tickets to Rome and a letter sent by Tsukiko's grandparents. Meanwhile, as Yōto takes Emi for a stroll, Emi notices that something is troubling Yōto and tells him to sort it out.

Tsukushi intends to look for concrete evidence of her late mother and them living together through old photos, but ends out empty-handed. Tsukushi and Tsukiko then claim that they had met Yōto in the past and then search for evidence regarding it, but only find an unfocused picture of the sibling's late mother. While tagging along with Tsukiko, Azusa comes to intervene and has a pep talk with Yōto. Afterwards, Tsukiko expresses her jealousy towards Azusa to Yōto. Claiming that meeting Yōto the longest would give her the advantage, Tsukiko wishes to see the past herself, followed by Yōto. Suddenly, a rabbit possessed by the cat god grants their wish.

As they head to the Tsutsukakushi mansion, they meet the younger Ponta, Mai, Azusa, and eventually Yōto, much to Tsukiko's amazement. Shortly thereafter, they meet Tsukiko's mother, Tsukasa, who is brash yet somehow soft towards the younger Yōto, who at the same time badmouths him. Through the younger Yōto, Yōto and Tsukiko are invited in for dinner at Tsukasa's mansion, which is in slight disarray. Here, Yōto and Tsukiko discover that Tsukasa is currently living alone and the younger Yōto constantly visits her to keep Tsukasa company, much to the shock of Yōto and Tsukiko. Meanwhile, Yōto claims that he does not remember anything about interacting with Tsukasa, and later learns that her daughters are currently living in Italy after the death of Tsukasa's husband. The following morning, Yōto stumbles on a young Tsukiko and later Tsukushi, who is deeply hurt by their mother abandoning them. Tsukasa arrives, causing Tsukushi to harshly run off, and Tsukiko then reprimands Tsukasa for being a horrible mother.
