After the first ep, the show seems to be exactly as I said, shitty storyline and nice animation and art.


You say that about Ladies vs Butlers, but you gave Kampfer a 10? Kampfer's storyline is non-existent and only exists to provide fanservice.

Maybe I'll watch it. I haven't seen a proper ecchi since last year.

The synopsys doesn't seem to give enough about what the anime is about. So I really can't tell what its about. Thus I can't say if it's good or bad. Anyone have more details about this manga?

Ha, yeah. Nothing else to expect of the general population of MAL, thanks for proving the point why animators and directors keep wasting their potential on 'anime' like this.
Lol @ this coming from a guy who liked endless eight.

Oh my, how did I miss that?

I dunno about the endless eight, but it's really, really amusing that someone who's got the same favorite shows and characters as every second MAL member apparently considers himself different from "the general population of MAL".

and on-topic,
after the first ep, the show seems to be exactly as I said, shitty storyline and nice animation and art.

Just got done watching the first episode and I thought it was pretty good. If you're an Ecchi hater, then this anime isn't for you, but if you love Ecchi, like myself, then you'll find this anime enjoyable.
No the ecchi is not a bother but I don't want a focus on it, that's all.

Oh man the ecchi is over the top again. I think in previews I have seen at least 5 series with ecchi. They also look like they are using some stuff from Nogizaka in the ecchi field. I hope the comedy/romance might be good though.

The title makes me want to watch it. The synopsis makes me want to puke.

Director of Kanokon + animation type of Kanokon =... I don't even need to say it.

Flame Heart looks like one of the Luminous Arc 3 characters that had appeared in the Xmas promotional video. Not sure if the Luminous Arc 3 character will be voiced by Nakahara Mai-san or not though..

Same here. The art is generic and unappealing...
And Xebec is producing! Wow, this anime sure is going to be a winner.

I am glad to see Hidaka Rina has another role, though.

Very decent cast but the director is sucks :(
