A snake-like lamia named Miia comes to live with him, and it is Kuruzu's job to take care of her and make sure she integrates into his everyday life. Unfortunately for Kuruzu, Miia is undeniably sexy, and the law against interspecies breeding is very strict. Even worse, when a ravishing centaur girl and a flirtatious harpy move in, what's a full-blooded teenage human with raging hormones to do?
