SYNOPSIS:  If you’re a pretty girl and have to go to the school infirmary, you’d better watch out for Dr. Murakoshi Shinta. If that lecherous excuse for a physician is in charge, you might get a very thorough physical “examination” instead of just an aspirin or a bandage! Even if you don’t remember anything strange happening, you’re still not safe. While Murakoshi may not be a very good doctor, he IS an excellent hypnotist with a knack for putting the female student body under his spell. It’ll be up to his various patients to start comparing “Doctor Notes” to see if they can figure out why they’ve all been feeling so strange lately… and why they all feel so oddly compelled to keep making return visits to SEX HYPNOTIST ZERO!
