I originally watched this show because the synopsis for it seemed absolutely ridiculous, but surprisingly enough it was good for a lot more than just cheap laughs. After reading other people's opinion on it, it made me very sad how few people really understand this anime.

The target audience is in fact not horny young men attracted to 2D girls. It isn't even ecchi. It is targeted to everyone with an open mind.

The message this show is trying to get across is that underwear is a lot more than just eye-candy for men.
It portrays painfully well what the state of the world is for underwear read more

Third time is a charm onto my review...Warning may offend rabid fanboys. This is not a hate review but rather a seething dislike for this show which is offensive to some people that are cerebral.

Story-. One of the main character indulges in the quantifiable merits of wearing flashy laced underwear. Hooray...Then we have the birth of an underwear club with a rational soliloques on what type of underwear to wear in certain situations. Did hooters write this script? Did they cajole and or bribe ZEXS into producing more garbage.

For this encapsulating set of dialogue I will now discuss the most fashionable models of read more

By now, every regular MAL visitor is pretty much used to all sorts of anime, be it action, drama, romance, or something light-hearted and silly. There is one thing a lot of them have in common, though: They can be rather naughty from time to time. To see an anime that takes the subject of showing off cleavage and underwear without trying to lean towards the 'ecchi' side is rather courageous. It didn't exactly succeed in staying innocent and all, but it did bring us a silly yet heart-warming story featuring characters with each their own personality, a loose yet fitting storyline and some fairly read more

When i listed this anime and saw what it was about i tought this was going to be a dumb anime and i will get bored from it, but to my surprise this anime was good and unique on its own way and even if it's about underwear they don't exploit that to make it a fan service anime, even though there are funny situations involving that.

Story:Follow Nayu a girl that is seen with bad eyes because she loves underwear, she wants to desingn underwear but people around thinks she is a pervet and the mean girls started a rumors years back that she is read more

Anime: B Gata H Kei
Both main characters are obsessed with a certain thing, and that is all they think about

Anime: Kaichou wa Maid-sama!
Both main protagonists are rivals but they start creating affection for each other in unusual ways 
reportRecommended by Tying-Ribbons
Anime: Yuru Yuri
Both have a couple of girls, who become friends. Although Yuru Yuri is more of a comedy slice of life, Chuu Bra has a bit more of a plot, or a story, but both are comedy and have shoujo ai in it. Yuru yuri more of it (in every episode lol).

Both recommended.

Anime: Fruits Basket
Both feature main characters who are extremely kind-hearted and naive, with only the best intentions for everyone. Also they are both comedies with romance, though Fruits Basket gets a lot more serious and romantic than Chuu Bra!!

Anime: Tsuyokiss
Both shows are about a girl trying her best to make a new club in her school. While the clubs get rejected a few times at first, neither girl gives up!

Anime: K-On!
