Amaenaideyo is a love comedy centered on the male protagonist, Ikkou Satonaka, and his love interest, Chitose Nambu. Ikkou and Chitose are both trainees at a Buddhist temple along with several other monks in training. Of course, this being a harem anime, all the other monks besides Ikkou are young girls. Chitose is only allowed to live and train with the girls because his grandmother is in charge of the temple; this seems to be a popular plot device that has been used in similar shows like Love Hina.
As a monk, Ikkou is not a very good one. He usually forgets incantations or screws up important ceremonies. As a consequence, he does most of the cooking and cleaning at the temple. Ikkou is also quite a pervert, so serving a bunch of girls is not such a bad deal. Most of the girls just accept his perverted nature, all except Chitose. While Ikkou is normally a poor monk, he has a special ability to turn into a super monk whenever he gets sexually aroused. The girls have learned that Ikkou’s ability can be triggered in an emergency if he sees a naked girl, it just so happens that Chitose is almost always the one forced to strip. Chitose actually has a crush on Ikkou, but he always seems to be at the wrong place at the wrong time and catches Chitose in various states of undress. It’s a classic love/hate relationship.
