Even more then ecchi and harem?

I should remind myself to check the genres before hand. Well, I'll definitely be skipping this.

The first OVA had a quite unique and fresh artstyle and interesting visual quirks with the whole alien subplot serving as a metaphorical device from my point of view.
Even though I wasn't a fan of the character constellation it was surprisingly heartwarming so I'm definitely interested in what Soubi Yamamoto is up to.

Hell no, ecchi and harem are disgusting, they're for sick freaks. Shounen-ai is a norm, it's so beautiful that anyone and everyone and any normal person will come to apperciate it and enjoy it to the fullest, and i'm sure even you have realized that by now.

No, but you can't compare completely different genres for completely different demographics now, can you?

on a side note, i'll pass on this, folks.

I was being sarcastic and I hate shounen-ai. I find it disgusting and stereotypical for the most part and have never once enjoyed seeing or reading it. (Reading on Tumblr mind you.) Quit talking like those are facts and like anyone who doesn't think that way isn't normal.

You see, they're called opinions.

And again, I was being sarcastic.

Oh, it's related? It was not very interesting personally, though.

Wait, so you were being a sarcastic bitch as well?

My apologies, it seemed too serious to me. (I've encountered far too many fujoshi in my time who talk like that on a serious note, which is why I responded the same way.) Again, terribly sorry. A sarcastic kid is a friend of mine any day. <3

Lol, i don't mean to offend you, but the thought of you thinking i was serious is giving me a very funny feel in the stomach. But yeah, i was being sarcastic, although i didn't mean to offend anyone with it.

So, let's hop on the nakama wagon?

Lovely! Will definitely watch. The producer is young and she draws what she likes, I admire her and her OVAs are special.
I loved the 1st OVA with aliens and friends, this 2nd OVA will have a merman! I'm already excited and PV looks beautiful.

Not quite surprising when only seiyuus make things that interesting.

I bought the DVD this Friday. Like the first one, sub are included in the DVD: Japanese (hard hearing), English and Chinese (not for the first one).
The first one sell well so it was decided to make a series: "Kono Danshi...". I don't know how well it was sell, but since Yamamoto Soubi is still a beginner it's promising! It's possible to exchange Animate card points to have the first one!

For the story, it's veryyyyyyyyy cute BL story! Like, really BL story this time, for the one complaining the first one wasn't BL! A soft BL story (I mean, don't expect a sex scene but expect more than the 2nd ova of Sekaiichi Hatsukoi!).
If you don't like cute romantic story and/or BL, stay away! ^o^

And 2100yens in Animate, with the Audio CD of the theme song by Midorikawa Hikaru and the karaoke version (less than 2100 if bought in amazon, but without the CD I think). It's cheap for a 30mn OVA (in Japan at least!) with sub if you need them!

Btw, for the tag... since there is a mermaid (well a merman?), it should at least have the "fantasy" tag!
