Need to quote the following post for those who say the synopsis sounds generic (actually being generic is not a bad thing IMO - but you have to have everything you read/watch not fitting a particular genre??, but I digress here) :

This series is a notch above other love comedies / harem shows. Firstly, it has a male protagonist that's anti-romance for a specific reason. Well, I really don't want to spoil. But, what I can say is that the LN reached a sales figure of 100,000 copies with just 2 volumes in half a year's time after getting published. Currently, it has broken through 400,000 copies with just 5 volumes in a short span of slightly over a year. For a love comedy, this already makes it top of the cream. Its popularity also resulted in a total of 3 manga adaptations at an early stage. It also got a drama CD and a radio show since volume 2! And got an anime confirmation after volume 4! This is practically unheard of for a love comedy. Even titles like Haganai and Oreimo got it after volume 5.


Shuraba has always been around the top in any "LN most wanted to be animated" list in Japan in the last 2 years or so, so this anime will be widely anticipated when it comes.

A-1 Pictures guarantees that this is a show that will be watchable, at least. I don't believe they've made a show I'd consider "Bad" (even the fujoshi stuff I didn't watch was well liked) in the last couple years.

Way too generic and lifeless. I can't watch these titles anymore. Sorry.

Chiwa Harusaki : Aki Tomosaki -> Chinatsu Akasaki (Kill Me Baby - Yasuna)
Masuzu Natsukawa : Chiwa Saito -> Yukari Tamura (Nanoha)
Himeka Akishino : **** -> Hisako Kanemoto (Ika-musume)

There are some LN teasers at baka-tsuki. The manga is translated by Japanzai but the manga is not really as good as the LN because a lot of jokes are cut out.


Side Comment (to no one in particular):
This series is a notch above other love comedies / harem shows. Firstly, it has a male protagonist that's anti-romance for a specific reason. Well, I really don't want to spoil.

If you don't like love comedies, this is not for you. But if you do enjoy love comedies every now and then and think this is generic, I can only boo, jeer, and snicker at your 'all-knowing' idiocy.

Awesome! I really like the manga adaptation of the series so far. And the artwork of the characters are great. Can't wait to see the Anime adaptation :DD

Produced by A1, a pretty consistent studio. It sounds pretty generic, but considering the studio it might be something worth watching.

Sick of comedys, but will check out.
