alright, i've never written a review on here but i'm drinking and this one has earned it.

the original concept described was pretty interesting and worth checking out: pretty anime boys are gonna talk at you like they;re beside you in bed. and if you see just the op you might actually think this isn't going to be bad. so wrong.

this is show is a beautiful trainwreck. rather than have the boys just tell stories about their day or something, they're trying to talk at you. and it's not only rhetorical questions. if this dora the explorer "shout map!" vibe wasn't weird enough the camera is read more

Here is my review~

I rate this anime 7/10 nosebleeds.
First off all let me tell you that most of the guys were ridiculously hot :3
And I recognized a lot of seiyuus -> *earbleeds*

For horny and perverted otomes and fangirls (such as myself) this is the perfect thing to watch before you release love nectar...
Wait what? U-uhm I mean before you go to sleep. Lemme explain that again, so perverted otomes/fangirls will clearly enjoy
this more than the common otaku.

Things that deserve a thumbs up (・∀・ ):
- Hot guys and good art style, although the little brother character disturbed me a little...*shiver*
- Hot seiyuus: those voices read more

Hey! Are you a filthy, cave-dwelling Fujoshi who likes hot guys but is still single? Do you need someone to snuggle up with at night before you go to bed? Do you need a generic 'hot guy' to talk to you and hold your hand? Well then, with this amazing program you'll get just that! For twelve whole episodes, you'll get a completely different hot guy each time to suit your own preferences! From the shy and bashful guy, to the delinquent with the heart of gold, to the hot five-year-old (I wish I was making this up - there actually IS a 'hot five-year-old', read more

First of all, this is obviously geared at girls, much like how most ecchis are geared at boys, so already there is a dichotomy here that should tell you in advance if this show is or isn't for you.

That being said, I am a man, and while Makura no Danshi was not a complete and total failure in the entertainment department, it crashes and burns in the objective department. Literally, there is no OST to speak of besides the OP and ED; It's like the whole world is muted while these guys are talking even if there should be something like an instrument playing. read more
