A course in genetics? Deoxyribonucleic acid squared? A freak combination of genetics and mathematics? NO!!!! DNA˛ is really Dokakade Nakushita Aitsuno Aitsu (what a mouthful!). By Masakazu Katsura, it is a mix of romance and comedy centered around a wimpy high school boy named Junta Momonari, who doesn't have much luck with girls.
In the distant future, the earth is overpopulated thanks to a mega-playboy who had 100 children with 100 women. Like father like son, all of his male descendants too became mega-playboys, and soon, the earth's population exploded. To prevent this overly prolific future, Karen Aoi, a DNA operator, is sent to the past to correct the problem at its source: Junta. Armed with a DCM bullet, she seeks him out, hoping to alter his DNA before it's too late. After accomplishing her mission, she finds to her dismay that she had brought the wrong bullet! (Oops!) She had inadvertently turned Junta into the Mega-playboy...
