[ Story ]

Honda has a tremendous sex drive but is married to a frigid wife whom he sees only on weekends. During his free time Honda hunts women, and keeps a record of his sexual conquests in a notebook he has entitled - The Hunter's Diary. Suddenly each one of his conquests is methodically and mysteriously murdered, and Honda finds himself accused and convicted of their deaths. Evidence against him being his blood (rare AB RH negative) found on the victims and his semen type. His new attorney, who is building up a case for appeal, now begins to look for a revenge killer who would know of Honda's rare blood and use it as falsely planted evidence. The killer, whom we never clearly see in the sexy flashbacks, turns out to be Honda's frigid wife who became enraged when she discovered "The Hunter's Diary" and found her own name listed as a conquest on the first page with the entry "This girl definitely not a virgin."
