Synopsis

Who’s your ideal boyfriend? You might find just the guy in Makura no Danshi. Each short episode features a different boy who will listen to you and hold you when you need it.

Episodes are shown from the viewer’s point of view, and the boys all address the viewer personally. Listen to them talk about their day, then tell them about yours. All the boys have kind hearts and will make you feel special and loved.

Each boy has a distinct background, age, and personality, sure to please any kind of viewer taste. Merry is a gentle brown-eyed boy with an open heart. Eiji Kijinami is a punk from your school who is really not as scary as people think. The shy Ryuushi Theodore Emori loves to watch the stars with you, getting lost in the night sky.

I used to be a bitter person. Every day, I got home from my part-time job and proceeded to watch anime, read manga/books, listen to music and sleep the rest of the day in order to run away from the day-to-day desperation but none of these activities was enough to satiate my loneliness. It was getting hard to breathe. It was as if an invisible noose was around my neck, loose enough to keep me breathing, but tight enough to hurt my neck and leave marks and bruises. I was contemplating suicide, no joke. There was nothing to look forward to anymore, and without friends read more

My Grandfather smoked his whole life. I was about 10 years old when my mother said to him, 'If you ever want to see your grandchildren graduate, you have to stop immediately.'. Tears welled up in his eyes when he realised what exactly was at stake. He gave it up immediately. Three years later he died of lung cancer. It was really sad and destroyed me. My mother said to me- 'Don't ever smoke. Please don't put your family through what your Grandfather put us through." I agreed. At 18 years old, I have never touched a cigarette.I must say, I feel a very slight read more

I would argue that 90% of the description for this show is a lie.

Also this review is littered with spoilers but I honestly don't think anyone cares.


"This "new and novel animation entirely in the first-person perspective" is designed to "heal tired hearts.""
I don't get how it would, all it is, is different boys talking to you for like two minutes. Doesn't really heal my tired heart. You know what does? Sleeping.

"...all full of distinctly individual personalities and each catering to viewers who like a certain "type.""
Is a little boy a type? Are two twins who are so rapey that it's unbelievable a "type"? Like I read more

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
