The story of how Kotono knew about the existence of drama CDs goes back to the time when she was in the middle school for the blind.
After dinner on the day I broke the saucer and Kamura-san thundered down on me. Kotono told me over a cup of freshly brewed tea.
When she was in the second year of junior high school, she heard that otome drama CDs recorded by voice actors with dummy head microphones were all the rage among the girls her my class.
Dummy head is a device that resembles a human head but has microphones attached to its ears, and the voice actor speaks into it. The recorded voice has a stereophonic effect that makes it sound as if the person is speaking right next to your ear.
I hadn’t heard of such a thing until Kotono told me about it, but when I looked it up, I found that many famous male voice actors in anime appear in it. All of them are romantic, and you enjoy the realistic feeling of your favorite voice actor whispering sweet nothings in your ear.
There is a wide variety of situations, from the disturbing, such as confinement, to the orthodox, such as lovemaking, and the harder the content, the higher the recommended age.
Of course, it was a softer version of what was popular in the middle school, but girls of that age, who were still in love at first sight, listened to it with great fervor.
CDs are not that expensive. Even so, the number of CDs a junior high school student can buy with his allowance is quite limited. Each of the kids in the class bought a CD of their favorite voice actor and lent them out to each other. It’s quite a funny sight to behold.
Kotono had turned her back on the excitement of her classmates, but one of them was kind enough to lend Kotono one of her favorites.
–Kotono-chan is a young lady, so she might like this kind of thing.
The title of the work was written on a self-made instruction manual typed in Braille.
The title of the book was, quite simply, “The Bossy Butler and the Doggie Servant”. As soon as she read it, Kotono apparently blew up.
“I’m laughing at you. The butler for me is Kamura. You’re the doggy servant, but that’s okay.”
Where did that came from?
“I gave it a listen, but I didn’t think it was worth the fuss, so I gave it right back. In hindsight, I think it was a bit of a waste.”
Kotono said and shrugged her head. I find that a little surprising. I thought she didn’t fit in well with the people around her because she hardly ever talked about her time at the school for the blind. Still, there were kind people. I guess there are caring people like Mukaishima everywhere.
“So, did you get to know this person after that?”
“Well, sort of. It’s more like they were following me around on their own.”
“That’s good, isn’t it?”
“Not really. Her parents divorced when she was in the third grade. She quit school and moved to Shimane Prefecture with her mother.
I wonder if this is one of the reasons why Kotono said she would not go to the high school. This girl is unexpectedly a person who cares about others. The fact that she keeps inviting Mukaishima to her birthday party is another sign of this.
“But then, wouldn’t it be better if Ojou-sama chose instead of me? I suppose choosing is part of the fun.”
“Oh, because. I can’t wait to see what you pick out for me.”
I chuckled at Kotono’s good mood.
Well, even though it’s recommended for 18-year-olds, only girls can listen to it. No matter how erotic you say it is, it’s probably not that much……
‘ll confess. I was completely underestimating the power of the drama CD attack at the time. Yes, I did. I thought it was just a girl’s game.
However, as a result, I was met with a painful reprisal from this lady who I had taken for granted.

Four nights later.
As I was wiping down the dishes in the servants’ kitchen, Anna-san showed up with a Hamazon cardboard in her hand.
Kotono and I eat at the same table, but we use completely different tableware. Kotono uses high quality tableware exclusively for her master’s family, while I use cheap and durable tableware for the servants. Anna-san unloads the dishes that Kotono uses, and I unload them myself and wash and wipe them in the servants’ kitchen.
“Here it is, Sasuke-kun. Here’s what you’ve been waiting for.”
“Oh, thank you.”
I wiped the sink clean with a cloth, wiped my hands on a towel, and picked up the package.
“Also, excuse me, could you tell Ojou-sama that I’m going to study in my room?”
“Yeah, well. That’s fine.”
With the cardboard box under my arm, I went straight to my room in the servants’ wing. Because of what was inside, I couldn’t help but walk while looking around. I felt more nervous than when I bought my own erotic novel.
I knew what I had to do: import the CD into my computer’s music software and sync it to the portable music player Kotono had given me.
When I returned to my room, I cut the tape with a cutter and unpacked the package. Wrapped in packing film were two CD cases. I cut the film and took out the contents.
The first title is “The Secret Affairs of the Noble Family: The Lewd Training of a Beast Butler”.
The other is “Ineffable Confinement Games: I want to love you so much that you break”.
The title is amazing. Well, erotic novels for men are similar. I wonder what Mr. Kamura’s face would be like if he heard about the Beast butler.
Both of them have illustrations of handsome men that women like. The unrealistically sweet masks gave me a feeling of being away from home. Well, I can’t see Kotono, so I guess she don’t care about the illustrations.
I chose these two because of their high reputation in the reviews on Hamazon. It seems that the otome drama CD genre has a very diverse and interesting collection. Both of these works received perfect scores, and the reviews were full of praise for the excellent voice acting and the sweet and erotic nature of the works.
“Let’s do it.”
I said to myself and picked up a copy of “The Secret Affairs of the Noble Family: The Lascivious Training of a Beast Butler”, peeled off the thin film wrapping the CD and inserted the disc into the drive of my computer. The music playing software automatically started up and read the CD. While I was importing the music, I looked at the bonus visual book that came with the CD.
The backstory of “The Secret Affairs of the Noble Family: The Lewd Training of a Beast Butler” is as follows.
It is the year 1946, the end of the Pacific War. The protagonist, a young wife who got married in a hurried celebration before going off to war without any conjugal activity, finds no hope in her married life with her husband, who was injured in the war and forced to live in a wheelchair.
The protagonist, still a virgin, plays the role of a virtuous wife, but a man who claims to be an old friend of her husband appears before her. The man is hired to replace the retired old butler at the mansion, but he has an air of mystery about him.
One night, when the protagonist can’t sleep and her body is on fire, she is visited by the butler in his room. He hugs the protagonist and whispers that he has been hired by an incapacitated friend to satisfy his wife’s physical needs.
–I’ll tell you everything you need to know. Whatever your Mistress wants.
…… I mean, doesn’t this look somewhat like “Lady Chatterley’s Lover”? The husband is injured in the war and is in a wheelchair.
As I put the CD back in its case, I checked to make sure it had been imported properly. I put the CD back in its case and checked to make sure it was imported correctly. The “Recently Added Albums” section of my music player had all the chapters. Well, that’s good.
I was about to reach for my second CD, “Ineffable Confinement Games: I Want to Love You So Much That It Breaks. Then my hand suddenly stopped.
At this moment.
I had a feeling of absurd curiosity in my head that I wanted to listen to it. I was able to listen to a sample on Hamazon, but I bought it without listening to it because I had no interest in it. Of course, it wouldn’t be fun for a guy to listen to. But it’s not a bad idea to listen to it as a story to tell your friends at school.
I took my headphones and put them in my ears.
I read the chapter titles listed in my music playing software.
They seemed to have a story, like the titles of a novel.
The fifth title was “05 Oral Sex – Come on, try it with your pretty mouth. This is a blowjob, isn’t it? My heart rate increased a little, and my mouse clicked on the chapter.
You can hear the deep sigh of the man.
“Here, suck it more tightly …… mmm ……! …… Yes, that’s right. You’re a …… good girl.”
A handsome voice I’ve heard somewhere says something outrageously obscene.
Aaaaah! What the hell is this!
