How am I supposed to hip my bishies when they have girlfriends... T^T Oh well, I'm gonna watch it anyway, at least if the animation is decent.

This plus I'm more disappointed how the boys can't love the same girl. Too many couples Amazon reviewers aren't happy.

Lovely Seiyuus - I'm gonna put it on my list - but usually not a fan of these Drama CD adaptation things.

Literally the only reason I'll check this out is because of Hayato Date directing this.

B's Log killed me how could they.
I'd rather like all the girls eliminated please. They are too many. Boys talking about their girlfriends I can't.

The legend himself, Filler man, is directing it, damn.

My reaction exactly. What a waste.

One must ever be vigilant for possible coming of spiritual successor of Yaoi!!! on ICE.

Yeah, um... that's not what this is. Yuri on Ice is actually quite good (regardless of how many of you all refuse to admit it, but that 8.36 MAL rating don't lie) and this... does not look good at all. And I'm not talking about the fact that it's straight. I'm talking about the fact that it looks like fanservice for the sake of fanservice. Like One Room or Roommates-level fanservice.

I'll definitly end up watching this. These type of shows are my guilty pleasure.

Apr 19, 10:55 AM by Chibi-Alice

The fact that theres a mention of girls is already worth something
But the character design is just atrocious

Wow thanks for the insight, I never would have figured it out if you hadn't written it out for me

*sigh* well I'm sure the fujoshi will be all over this as usual :s


I don't think it's for fujo though but for the average female reader, these guys have girlfriends.
Yeah okay good point
