Cleavage (クレイヴィジ Kureiviji ) is a bishōjo game for Microsoft Windows created by Sei Shoujo and released by Empress in February 2005. It inspired a two-episode original video animation (OVA) erotic series directed by Takashi Kondou and produced by Atlas21 under its Media Bank label. It was released in Japan in 2006 and in the USA three years later, on January 20, 2009, by Kitty Media.
Yuuto and Erika begin to live alone after their father's job transfer to Sapporo. They are siblings, but not blood related, as Yuuto's widowed father married Erika's mother. Finding themselves alone, Yuuto and Erika initiate a sexual relationship, but Yuuto's art teacher, Sayaka Ichinose, notices the change and takes an interest in what is going on.
- Yuuto Toudou
- After his mother dies and his father remarries, Yuuto develops a large breast fetish in combination with unhealthy feelings towards his new family. First for his stepmother and her ample bosom, then, after her death, for his well-endowed step-sister, Erika. With his father moving away, he is left living alone with Erika. Although the two often bicker, they both harbor hidden romantic feelings towards each other.
- Erika Toudou
- Yuuto's step-sister, who secretly has a crush on him. She expresses it through jealously and teasing of Yuuto's "oedipal" attraction to his step-mother. Their relationship changes after an argument in which Yuuto complains that Erika is too absorbed in her studies and no good at household chores. She ends up offering to help him in another way by giving him sexual favors which he readily accepts. They attempt to keep to their relationship a secret, but others notice the change in the siblings. Among them is Yuhi, a fellow female classmate, who is romantically interested in Erika.
- Sayaka Ichinose
- Ichinose is the school's art teacher. She is sexually attracted to Yuuto and blackmails him with photos of Yuuto and Erika having sexual relations. Progressively, however, she falls in love with him and inserts herself into the siblings' forbidden relationship.
- Yuhi Morikawa
- Morikawa is a closet lesbian who is romantically attracted to Erika. She becomes suspicious of the change in the nature of Yuuto's and Erika's relationship. When she expresses her love to Erika, Morikawa comes across as aggressive and Erika subsequently hides from her in a closet and calls Yuuto via cellphone for help. After they both explain that Erika is not attracted to her, Morikawa is saddened but remains on friendly terms with Erika, as proven when she keeps a perverted classmate named Kuno from secretly taking pictures of Erika with a digital camera during gym practice.
