Here is the series synopsis from AnimeNewsNetwork.
The story begins when the reserved Shizuka attends a local mixer party but has trouble adjusting to the atmosphere. A beautiful older female college student named Ryō starts talking to her, and the pair hit it off. Shizuka goes to spend the night at Ryō’s place. However, Ryō unexpectedly kisses Shizuka and pushes her down. Shizuka thinks the beautiful woman is a lesbian but soon discovers that Ryō is actually a man dressed as a woman.
Woooo, another yuri anime! It’s probably gonna suck but I’m so damn excited – wait, wait.
but soon discovers that Ryō is actually a man dressed as a woman.
Well, fuck, I’m out of here. Certainly nothing wrong with crossdressing, but there is something wrong with this premise…
