Hensuki: Are You Willing to Fall in Love with a Pervert, as Long as She's a Cutie? revolves around Keiki Kiryū, an ordinary high school student who finds an anonymous love letter addressed to him.

Mizuha admits that she is the one who left the love letter and her panty on the Calligraphy Club room, hid herself in the locker room and quickly sprinted out to evade Keiki. She also confessed that she is in love to Keiki because of his kindness, caring and understanding personality. Keiki downplays Mizuha's confession as they cannot be in a relationship as they're siblings but she corrects him by recalling their birth dates.
