I sweat, males are getting more and more androgynous (close to female-like already) and hip and shit while females are the ones put under great psychological stress and shit.

The gender roles are switching.

Future.


What? None of the guys in DMmd look female... maybe Clear, but that's by a long shot.


Imagine Aoba in a dress...

I hope they leave Mink out of it! I couldn't stand him at all


I don't really like Mink, (well in the first game I couldn't stand him, I liked him a lot more in Re:connect) but removing him would be really detrimental to the plot.

Mink hater, I see. You know that they can't leave him out, right? If they leave him out, they need to leave the


Basically, removing Mink would be a bad idea, and a lot of people do actually like him, anyway. He's not my favourite character, but I do like him.

I hope they wouldn't show any guy X guy sex scenes in anime version due to fact that it's too 'extreme' to show on TV. *shudders*

Oh shit.... Dick in the ass?

I'm out.

I highly doubt they'll include anything like that considering its a TV anime. In fact, I don't think there'll be any relationships in it at all to be honest.


what will they be left with if aoba can't screw anyone? how will anyone solve any problems?! XD jk

i'm not expecting much, not everything is meant to be animated :\

I just thought that it will be a psychological anime from the title

Bl can have psychological themes


But not in a sexy style


This shit is erotic as fuck.
And has some psychologically damaging routes too.

Not a fan of yaoi or shounen ai but the synopsis looks interesting and the game is pretty popular too.

I'll watch it then ^u^

Not really into BL, but I'll probably check this out when it happens.
No time like the present to finally start on the VN.

Because Urobutcher is involved.. Anyone betting that one of the major characters will die or have fate worse than death?


Unfortunately little to no Nitro+ staff are actually getting into the anime project it seems (aside from seiyuu). The bad ends are quite fucked up though, if you're interested.
