Ontama.. (sounds sort of like Gintama, an anime that resembles Bleach)

Ichigo.. (same name as the protagonist of Bleach but female..)

Orikasa Fumiko.. (seiyuu who voiced Rukia, female lead of Bleach)

Hmmm.. I am not watching it. Doesn't sound very interesting...

It's not a drama - it's a comedy, and a fairly funny one - at least the first episode.

only 5 episodes o_o;;~~~ Well, I'm pretty much watching it for Nojima Hirofumi. xD
It'll be interesting to see how this series ends though.

Ugh, reading the description led me to believe it might be a good drama series with a sense of realism. Then I saw the volume 1 cover.
