Ohhh, that key visual is pretty. And some of the char designs in the PV are also very nice.

Looking forward to hearing more cast announcements, though my heart will be a bit pained if OnoD doesn't at least make an appearance.

Honestly that's just jumping into conclusions, no offense.

1. I know males that watch these type of series, so it's not surprising honestly. And I've seen a decent amount as well as some people did enjoyed it, which are males, that have seen some stuff that I've seen, and they liked it.

2. It's most likely because compared to the fanbase of said series the anime doesn't sell well, that would be an issue I'm seeing, but since this is an original, there's no established fanbase of this.

So, technically. No it's not killing the industry, and even then, I highly doubt they would be gone. In itself it's not killing the industry for the amount of stuff the medium makes, just saying.

3. They didn't sink low at all. They're still consistent with the stuff they make even without this so not really the case.

4. I think it's more of an all-male cast so unless they announce a female here, then for now it stays as a all-male cast.



dont worry noone is telling u not to watch it, we just gonna enjoy some classic death note, one punch man and rakugo shinjuu which u rated 2,2,4. im more than happy to stay like this lmao


Not like I have anyone against liking those shows. 2/3 of them are on my Top hated shows but its not like I'll attack anyone for it. Granted I did but only to defend myself in some sense.

But the person responded as if we're touching sexism type of shit so.

Well since its an original I'll watch. I like original stuff more cause adaptions usually have filler endings or cut off before the good stuff happens.

I don't hv high expectation from the pv but i know this will end up on my list anyway. (plus butlers xD)


haha, kind of off topic but this otakuweeb dude keep baiting and trolling in every anime news threads that aimed for females just show his stupidity and hypocrisy when he himself watching/reading 'sexualized' females. Keep your butthurt just to yourself dude

Lol, well maybe it balances it out a bit? For the insane amount of one-dimensional female sex object characters in soooo many animes?

This being an original anime and not derived from an otome is what makes me excited. Tatshisa <3 I love him as Noctis...I wonder if he's a master/prince character here too, with everyone competing as the butler. It really reminds me of that one BL game, Hadaka Shitsuji. Winter huh, I;m glad Idolish7 is not the only one answering to my fangirl heart. I wish it has shounen themes too.

It is not clear at this point as the official site just opened few hours ago. This might neither be all male anime, nor anime with heroine. It gets me a feeling of girls appearing as supportive characters and male characters fight each other in a serious battle (not "cute things").


Hmm, OK, so it's not confirmed yet. I don't mind it either way, it looks interesting. Thank you!

Looks really nice. Is this an otome anime or just handsome men doing cute things?


Looks like cute boys doing cute things given the characters announced and synopsis.


It says comedy on ANN but it also says school action. I'm excited.

Shadow-Chan said:

PV screams otome also chara design. Yet story is more about two male leads.
I want to know why image color for everyone and MC wears a colored bracelet.


Yeah, the PV really felt like an otome game PV. And yesss, Suwabe-san for that beauty, please.

Glad to see Tatsuhisa getting a main role, looked like it'd be a serious show having to do with actual butlers but then in the synopsis it says school comedy... just hope it's good either way.
