Story[edit]

The story is about a young part-timer, Shinosuke, and his rise in the lingerie company "PIXY". He was found by the eccentric CEO (Shōzō Hino), when Shinosuke was returning a pair of old ladies underwear that was sent to the wrong department. Later, it's discovered that Shinosuke has an odd “talent”. He is able to merely touch a lady and know if she is wearing the right or wrong lingerie and can even tell her measurements. His touch also causes a pleasurable sensation to the ladies and they come back for more. Shinosuke does not understand this due to his innocence and “purity”. As the story progresses a romance develops between Shinosuke and Yumika Wakamiya, the private secretary to Hino.
