Contains episodes 1-13. Perhaps it was from the shock of discovering her school's most respected girl kissing a life-size huggie doll, but in those first awkward moments Riko Kurahashi said something she wishes she hadn't. Not only did student council president Natsuo Maki completely swallow Riko's glib fib about being "popular with the boys," but she drafted Riko as her aide and advisor in love and romance! It would have been bad enough if Natsuo only wanted advice, but Fujisaki Girls Academy's most brilliant student is also the most obsessive, and simply talking about the opposite sex isn't sufficient. No, Natsuo postulates hypothetical scenarios and "researches" them in her secret Love Lab! And since interaction with boys is banned at Fujisaki, guess who has to help act those fantasies out? As other girls join the Love Lab, Riko's role as the group's love-master becomes even worse - because she isn't one! Most boys don't even like her, but how can she admit that without destroying the friendships she now cherishes?
