That anime adaptation was a travesty. WatashiMote deserved way more. I get salty when I think about it. Once again shows how in most cases, shoujo manga to anime adaptations get the short end of the stick.

I seriously hope Kakuriyo Yadomeshi is adapted well but it looks really low budget so far which is really unfair because most LN anime at least have a half-decent budget but being the first shoujo-ish LN to be adapted, I guess it's to be expected, ugh.

Are there any gay pairs at the end ? Or just bait ?


Obviously baits. There has never been any homos in the story. All of them were interested in Serinuma, including Nishina (the only other female protagonist), then again as a close friend and nothing more.

The author managed to add some BLish scenes because she is primarily a BL author. Serinuma also represents the Fujoshis very well. She eventually falls in love with one of the boys (you can also read the Best Boy) who she dreamt of pairing with other boy(s).

Oh wow, I guess I could finally read it from the first chapter then since I felt like I cannot pick it up from the anime bc the anime has a messed up story line. Praise to Junko-sensei! \o/

Will she ever make a new BL manga after this??
