Sounds like it could be interesting, but I can't find the light novel or manga anywhere in the data base.

No one has bothered to add them yet. Not uncommon for raw stuff.

...or it could end up being generic....

I'm not having too high expectations in order not to be disappointed.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

The website's pic is win. Other than that, meh for lack of info.



How does the title even fit the synopsis. Not that many do, but seeing as the title sounds interesting, the story sounds rather generic.

Another ecchi anime, I presume.

I will wait to see the seiyuu cast before deciding whether to watch it or not.

Meh, good cast, staff doesn't look promising (Kanokon? eww), but if it involves butlers I'll give it a shot. Site pic looked amusing.

Ha, yeah. Nothing else to expect of the general population of MAL, thanks for proving the point why animators and directors keep wasting their potential on 'anime' like this.

Anyway, now that Nakahara Mai's got a role in this, I'll have to watch it. I can still give it a low score, I suppose.

And Xebec is producing! Wow, this anime sure is going to be a winner.

I am glad to see Hidaka Rina has another role, though.

Flame Heart looks like one of the Luminous Arc 3 characters that had appeared in the Xmas promotional video. Not sure if the Luminous Arc 3 character will be voiced by Nakahara Mai-san or not though..

Oh man the ecchi is over the top again. I think in previews I have seen at least 5 series with ecchi. They also look like they are using some stuff from Nogizaka in the ecchi field. I hope the comedy/romance might be good though.

In spoiler my anime list for now.
