The story centers on Nayu, a middle school girl who shocks her schoolmates on the first day of school by wearing black lace panties. She likes this kind of underwear, and she tries to "spread the word on the merits of [these kinds of] underwear" via an underwear club with her schoolmates, who are worried about their bodies' development and which underwear to choose.

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

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

Honestly, this is one of the animes that gain low notes by the stupidest mistakes of the reviewers. So, i am gonna make things clear right from the beginning. Point 1: These are NOT elemental school girls, they are 15 in the least. Point 2: This is NOT a fanservice show, it may sound like so from the premise, but it has minimal amounts of fanservice, this is a story anime. Now that's taken care of, let's start with the actual review.

Here's the thing, this title delves into subject matter that is really ignored and that's underwear. It is something that a lot of people do, and that's wear incorrect type underwear be they male of female and this series attempts to address this subject matter. For example in the first episode when she is discussing appropriate comfortable bra size, this is applaudable because all too often women will wear a bra size that's too small for them causing them discomfort.

However, what this series does wrong, and why I actually scored it so low was the fact that they address this topic not in a read more
