Mixed Feelings
A Studio Deen show that is decent to good? Colour me surprised, since most of their shows are low quality garbage.

The only seemingly "orígjnal" stuff that the production staff added into the mix was the BL aspect of the male characters that seemingly is the trial and tribulations ...
