I don't think it's for fujo though but for the average female reader, these guys have girlfriends.

The fact that theres a mention of girls is already worth something
But the character design is just atrocious
Watching good seasonal anime is like you're following the main plot of the story while watching retro anime is like you're watching fillers of the story.

Yeah, um... that's not what this is. Yuri on Ice is actually quite good (regardless of how many of you all refuse to admit it, but that 8.36 MAL rating don't lie) and this... does not look good at all. And I'm not talking about the fact that it's straight. I'm talking about the fact that it looks like fanservice for the sake of fanservice. Like One Room or Roommates-level fanservice.

B's Log killed me how could they.
I'd rather like all the girls eliminated please. They are too many. Boys talking about their girlfriends I can't.

Literally the only reason I'll check this out is because of Hayato Date directing this.

This plus I'm more disappointed how the boys can't love the same girl. Too many couples Amazon reviewers aren't happy.

Exactly, if it's a reverse harem then I don't mind. They deserve it, I hope it will be a short series.

I get that you're upset there's no yaoi and reverse harem but can you stop repeating yourself already? And unfortunately for you this will be in the same format as Tsukiuta.

Doesn't look as great as the other Konbini show. The fact that they all have girls is interesting though.
Sieg Zeon!
