Synopsis of 2.5 Dimensional Seduction

"I'm not interested in real girls!" So says Okumura, the president of the school's manga club. He's your typical otaku, obsessed with a sexy (fictional) 2D manga character known as Lilliel. Then the new school year begins and a 3D (real!) girl named Lilysa, whose passion is cosplay, joins the club. Lilysa convinces Okumura to become her photographer, and guesses who her favorite manga character is. And not only that, Lilysa likes to model fetish things! The boundaries between 2D and 3D begin to blur as this hot-blooded romantic comedy unfolds.
