Didn't see this coming! I wonder if Sentai will license it, given that they have the first two.

It's not like the BL is really shoved in your face that much. The first one the boys just were really close and I guess, maybe, could be read as a strong friendship. The merman one, they kiss once, but that's about it.

Either way, both were amazing and I bought them both.

I agree, it really wasn't that bad. In fact, I liked the merman one a lot (I kinda forgot about the other one), but mostly due to the artstyle. Most guys avoid these OVA's immediately even if there's one tiny bit of BL in them.

Woah so excited for this! Was waiting for Yamamoto Soubi to make another Kono Danshi ^^ I enjoyed both of the previous OVAs, especially the Ningyo one, and I'm sure the next one won't disappoint me. Her character design seems to have gotten more clean than the first two as well, but it's still distinctly her style. Can't wait!

I agree with the others that although it's labeled as a BL, there's not much going on in it. There are different types, Kono Danshi series is very light on romance, there's always a bigger theme behind it, like loneliness, or questioning one's existence. But of course I can see if people don't want to watch it at all because they simply don't want to see two males that are really close together/maybe kiss. It is, after all, still targeted towards a certain demographic and maybe outside people's comfort zone :)

Judging by the PV, this doesn't look like this one is going to BL, it looks more like a reverse harem.

Wrong PV yo :P That's the reverse harem drama CD Yamamoto Soubi worked on before the announcement of the 3rd OVA, which is the one this thread is talking about. The titles are also different. The one you linked to is: この男子、悪人と呼ばれます, whereas the upcoming OVA is: この男子、石化に悩んでます ^^

Been waiting for years for this good news. The PV looks promising, I hope they don't stray too far away from the original style from the first two OVAs, I love the colorful and cute animation. And I hope they don't add a female main character like what they did with the drama CD. (though it doesn't look anything like it in the PV yet)

Ohh, I often misread things and jump to conclusions lmao. That is kind of weird that all the others are BL stuff and the drama CD isn't though.

Haha it happens :) But yeah, I thought it was weird too. When the PV came out for the drama CD, I thought it would be like the Kono Danshi OVAs and was a tad disappointed to hear that it was something different. At least we can expect the 4th installment of the Kono Danshi franchise to be like the 2 other OVAs :D

I'm very glad they're making a third one! I just finished the second one and it was lovely.

Now I need to see about this drama CD, too... I had no idea they had released one.

As mentioned before... that's the Drama CD PV, not the new OVA PV which is the 4th installment of the series. The Drama CD was the one prior to it.
