Keep your pants on, the kiss was between two teachers, not between a teacher and a student. I just read the first chapter of the manga.


Ahaa. now watch how half the plan-to-watchers lose interest :p


Oh, wow. The interest DID dry up once we disproved the pedo aspect :3

The synopsis for the manga sounds good. Hopefully the OVA will adapt it well.

Not sure if i'll watch since i'm not a fan of teacher and student relationships.

Looks like Cardcaptor Sakura without magic.

It's probably going to be one of those 3 episode shorts that total up to a grand 4 minutes like Sugar Soldier and Romantica Clock.

That might be a thing now. 4 minute shoujo shorts. Huh.

Her is the main girl, and homeroom teacher is a female (kissing a male classmate of main girl's).

I am interested, as long as the HR teacher doesn't turn out to be a whore, or the male classmate turning out to be a playboy.

By the way, it is said that she is 12 years old, that does make her HR teacher a pedophile, kissing a 12 years old boy. Well, who knows if it's actually on the lips.

This is what I am thinking too. Nice thinking :D
Well, I am now interested. I shall watch the OVA adaption and read the Manga!!!

The manga sounds interesting...

Feb 23, 2014 2:28 AM by CoyFish

I think I'll watch it

Feb 23, 2014 2:06 AM by CinnamonHime

This sounds pretty interesting.

Feb 23, 2014 12:22 AM by GarLogan78

Hmm this is intriguing. Very intriguing.

I don't have high expectations on this unless a PV is out.

I don't think I see any PVs out for OADs released for Ciao, though.

I doubt the HR teacher is a slut, not in a manga for middle school aged girls, as for where the kiss landed, we'll have to see for ourselves and it could be the reason why it's an OVA.
