High school student Yoshiki Maeda is starting a new year in the all-boys Baraman High School. On the first day, Yoshiki reconnects with his childhood friend, Takuya Saotome, and meets his odd and dramatic homeroom teacher, Teruhiko Saionji. Yoshiki’s younger sister, Yuu, is aware of many of these handsome boys and seems to take pleasure in teasing her big brother about them.

Yoshiki soon discovers a number of stereotypical romance characters and has no choice but to deal with their outright ludicrous and nonsensical boys' love antics.

I watched this at 1am and actually cried laughing. The art is terrible, the story is terrible, the characters make no sense, and I love it. This is the best parody of those generic school yaoi/BL dramas that could ever be conceived. Everyone looks like they were drawn by a not-artistically-gifted 6th grader that just got into anime. The main character has no eyes and his 7 year old sister remembers playing with one of the MCs friends from 7 years ago. They blow up like 3 buildings. A guy dies and comes back to life. In read more

To be clear: this is yaoi SATIRE. Unless you've been a weeb since the days of newgrounds, you're not going to get this.

Imagine every thirteen year old's deviant art account when they started watching anime. That is the art of this show. And it was intended. The pointy chins, the yaoi hands- all intended. Literally every possible thing is wrong with the art, shading, proportions, perspective, everything. The characters are exaggerated versions of BL art style and the main character has no face which makes it fairly quirky

Pretty good actually. Goes to show that the animators actually do know what they're doing. And read more

Jean-Paul Sartre once said "You've got to take life as it comes, even when it hits you in the eye and drips down your chin." This was my approach to this anime, in the beginning anyway. I'm your average Joe Sixpack, I work my 9-5 at the factory and in the evenings I like to unwind with a cold refreshing Bud Lite and a nice Yaoi. One of the guys down at the factory mentioned a quirky little show called Gakuen Handsome and how it was a pretty funny parody of the Boy Love programs we all know and love so I figured hey, I'll read more

~ Story (9) ~

Each short, three and a half minute, episode explores a new character in this wonder parody harem. There are episodes about a man who can fly using the rotation powers of his spatulas, invitations to go romantically peeing together, fashionable wearing of sumo wrestler underwear (fundoshi), death by cat cafe and many other ridiculous things. Not much else to say but that each episode will leave you thinking both, "wtf did i just watch" and "i need more".

To me, aspects of an anime like art, music, read more
