The school love story is set at Baramon High School, a private boys' school for the prefecture's most elite. The protagonist is a seventeen year old boy who transfers into the school and meets various major players on campus, such as the outlaw teacher, the soccer captain, and a childhood friend whom the protagonist has not seen for seven years. The school presents opportunities for friendship, love and conflict, and changes are now bound to happen in the main character's life.
This anime is the ultimate meme of the season, basically a masterpiece.
Story - Kid transfers to school and everyone likes him. He has his own harem of pointy chin dudes. A++ story, basically every harem ever.
Art - Mm... yes baby, pointy chins are very very beautiful. Rock those pointy chins and stab someone with them maybe. That art deserves a 10/10. It's amazing. I could never draw like that, and it's one of my many factors that contribute to me laughing so hard about this Annie May ( Ha, get it? Annie May. ). Humans totally move like that in real life and we're all creatures who move in slow motion.
Sound - Finally at the moo-sick. From what I can tell in every episode, this is an Annie May about handsome men and there's no other song that describes that better than the opening or ending song. You can't watch this anime without handsome men with pointy ling long chins.
Character - 10/10 All the characters are cliche and stereotypes of any BL or harem characters are spot on to a point where I couldn't stop laughing.
Enjoyment - 10/10
From what you can tell, I definitely enjoyed looking at the handsome men. Pointy chins are life.
Overall - 10/10 Masterpiece, highly recommended for otome fans and those who love harems and yowie-owie ( whoops, I meant yaoi ). Really well done for a parody.read more
I give this Anime a PERFECT 5/7.....here's why.......
Well the Story is just definitly a 10 after all it is very very original and not just your daily dose of trash harem.
The art is sooo damn beautiful and there are sooo many gorgeous pictures of the characters and the surroundings.Thats why i gave it a 10.
The music in this sshow is really something else!!It is kinda relaxing,thought-provoking and full of action at the same time!!So I gave it obviously a 10.
Every character has an other philosophie and motivation. These "Lifestyles" are constantly clashing against each other with the main character as the referee. Because of this process there is really much action going on in this series.My end result is the Characters are a 10/10.
Because of all the aspects that I named in my review so far I can say for sure that the enjoyment-factor in this series is a incredible good 10.
After adding up all the scores that I gave this show and thinking for a while i came to the certainly conclusion that this show, more than ANY OTHER SHOW deserves to be given a PERFECT 5/7!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope that my review was helpfull for all of you. :)read more
The Story is not good. It's not trying to be good, though, it's trying to be a parody, in which it is one of the best parodies of BL, harem, and general school life love stories I've ever seen. The art is horrific and I could do better with paint flip art in a couple of hours(no I couldn't but it looks good if I say I could), and that fact makes the show simply outstanding. I recognize all the tropes as a general fudanshi and a lover of school life yaoi, and it makes a damn good job making the whole concept of those kinds of love stories absolutely ridiculous.
And tbh, the voice acting isn't that bad, but the syncing is, like, gone because of the general lack of mouth movements as a result of the horrendous art.
Ever wonder how lovecraftian creatures find love?
This anime is about (self insert)’s journey in the scary world of hot, long-chinned boys: Baramon High School. Boiled down, it’s a parody anime about commonly used BL tropes. Imagine if someone in the anime industry decided to create an official abridged series, and then proceeded to air it on TV in hopes that someone out there would get the joke. Basically, you’ll be playing a game of ‘spot the trope’ with every episode. If all that sounds fun to you, this might just be worth checking out.
The school of Baramon High is where all attractive boys are collected and gender is irrelevant, all seemingly shepherded by their principal Jirou Natsume. Your literal no-faced self insert moved in not too long ago to unexpectedly find himself on a quest for a romantic partner, and is put through one scenario after another to showcase their rather generic quirks. This story is less about a plot, and more about how many tropes can fit into a five minute episode without spitting it in your face too hard. Here’s just a few you’ll encounter in the first few episodes: A ‘cast full of pretty boys’, ‘if it’s you, it’s okay’, ‘chins that can split the moon’, ‘long-haired pretty boy’ and ‘only has same sex admirers’. That’s just the ones I can remember off the top of my head, so keep hunting!
The art, while clearly an intentional move, is hideous. Simply slowly jiggling your characters while having a mouth flap move feels and looks like it’s a tutorial for learning how to change frames in Flash. Furthermore, these simplistic loops are used throughout with short breaks involving scenes that look like scribbles, focused upon for far too long in what is a five minute show. The saving grace of this is that this IS actually how it’s meant to be shown; most jokes stemming from this child-like style, resulting in the score of 3 above. If you don’t believe me, then feel free to look up the tween animation used in the ED that also looks like it was made by a seven year old messing around with features on Scratch. The OP isn’t much better with quick still frames and a running loop that’s used throughout the whole show so far. The saving grace of artistic talent is the end-of-show stills, but even they can’t save what is eternally and intrinsically broken.
The music isn’t the worst, but don’t be holding your breath. The OP is the generic visual novel song with little to no creativity being closely followed by an ED that’s both out of place and hellish spawn in need of purging. The sound design of the actual show is surprisingly decent with atmospheric sounds and some character's themes not sounding quite as bad as you would (or should) expect. Chalk it up to trying to keep matching the clear satire this show is going for, I guess.
Expect exactly what it says on the tin: Stereotypes and under-developed jokes of a cast. Our MC is Maeda, a character without much personality aside from being consistently confused at any man's advances. He's essentially designed for you to slip into his shoes with as little friction as possible. This is closely followed by one-dimensional, cliché bishounens who are all the boys we’ve seen so far, along with a headmaster to encourage his scandalous love life, as mentioned above.
-- I don’t have enough details to fully flesh out this section yet. --
The situations thus far have been parodies of the generic scenarios shown in BL visuals with the intensity turned up to 11. They hit hard when you know the background behind them, but I fear it'll run dry fast. Anyway, while not having a wide range of jokes to fall back on as far, they’re usually held up their job of being funny. The merry band of hot men willing to die for the MC will hopefully hold up the ridiculousness of the non-existent plot long enough to keep this entertainment for a 12 episode season along with the up-and-coming OVA. Overall, in terms of enjoyment, I’ve been having a pleasurable time with a show whose animators are clearly having a blast.
