    This is the Pinnacle
    This is the single greatest achievement that mankind has ever produced. With stunning dialogue, such as "Prepare yourself. The next thing I'll be playing is you. Make sure you squeal well.", and amazing storytelling that generally revolves around you working hard, and then going to sleep with anime boys. It even include some amazing interactive sections that take a page from the legendary "Dora ...

    Quite possible the best horror anime....
    Japan has ever produced. The haunting soundtrack ( an uptempo happy beat song produced by a recording company in terribly deep debt, followed by yawning silence afterwards) sets a chilling tone as the minutes crawl by like ants sliding up your arm. The disarming gentleness of the characters of each episode leaves you wondering why this anime exists, and therein lies the genius of this absolute ...

    I Feel a Serious Review is Needed...
    So sick of all the trolling reviews, so here is my take from the standpoint of the intended audience (people who are into cute guys).
    This is essentially an animated Drama CD--sort of along the lines of Hitsuji de Oyasumi. A cute boy whispers in your ear while you fall asleep...or, that's the way it should be.

    Let's start with the good points. There is an audience for this, as proven by the ...

    I don't need/want a bodypillow boyfriend but for some reason I want to see the next one
    I was so confused and curious that I figured I'd spend 3 minutes seeing what it was all about.

    The animation/character design is... OK. It varies based on the guy. Not liking one is no guarantee you won't like the next. There's not a lot in the way of sound. The voice acting is fine. I recommend if you want to try it DO NOT just click on episode one, but look at the thumbnails and choose ...

    What did I just watch?
    This may be the creepiest anime I've ever seen.
    But I'm a straight guy, and not desperate.
    If you're a desperate straight female/gay male then this is probably right up your alley, it's basically a talking body pillow.
    So yeah, there's that.

    Rated 4 because for what it is, it is well scripted and well animated, it's just creepy in a sad way.

    Fun idea... but meh.
    I would've tolerated it a bit more if it at least had some background music. I get that it wants to get down and personal with the audience but it came out as creepy and awkward. At this rate, I'd rather self insert the guy and live a narcissistic life with myself forever.

    EDIT:
    Okay, episode 11 deserves a star of its own so +1. I love the ojisan and he beats the rest of them combined by ...

    First Impressions!!!
    If your one of the people who have the sleepy time boyfriend app on your android or IOS phones, then this short little anime is for you. Based on the description, you will have each week a new guy welcome you home and talk to you for an average of 4 mins. Guy or girl, it doesn't matter, it's cute and simple and the voice acting just makes you melt. You can't help but answer back in your head while ...

    Not Sure What I Just Watched...
    This anime is definitely for you if you want girl fan service or have the Sleepy Boyfriend app or play games like that, but if not I don't wouldn't suggest this, which is why I gave 3 stars. After seeing the first episode I can already tell that I will not be watching anymore. The conversation was too...boring and didn't really capture my attention. The whole time I was watching this I was ...

    Take it for what it is
    It's an inexpensive production to launch a franchise of sorts. I mean, it's sponsored by some cotton association-- what did you expect?
    But it's a fun watch if you take it for what it is. It's for certain less creepy than the one with young girls launched years ago for the dude demographic. It's more about sweetness and comfort than something sexual. The voices are very soothing, so kudos to the ...

    Great for calming people down!!
    In general, this show's concept is quite weird, but I came to enjoy it after a few episodes! It's quite calming to listen to someone who "cares" (the violin dude didn't really seem to care) about you talking you to sleep. This is definitely something that I will come back to whenever I'm having an anxiety attack or can't go to sleep.
