    Not as homophobic as I was dreading
    At Episode 8 so far.

    Mostly writing this for people wondering whether the show is respectful to LGBTQ issues, and to counter that other review. I went into the show worried that I was going to see homophobic/transphobic stuff and it's not as bad as you'd think.

    Main points: In general the animation is noticeably choppy but doesn't take away from watching the show. Character design ...

    3 minutes of hilarity
    Whether or not you are a fundanshi, these 3 minute shorts are beverage choking hilarious. I just saw the first 2 episodes and I can't wait to see more.

    The difference between BL and yaoi is the same as romance novels and porn, except the characters are of the same sex instead of the opposite sex. Although, BL is more appealing than romance between opposites because the situations are much more ...

    Hilariously Packs a Punch
    This is the type of show that will have you hooked within minutes. At first I thought that it would only appeal to a very specific audience but this actually captured my interest. The character expressions are perfect. I'm eager for the next episode to be released!

    Refreshing subject for a change
    I'd not heard of this series before I checked it, but it seems quite fun. The topic is something not often explored and I hope it's not going to be the same as with fujoshi characters, just with the gender swapped. The art style is nothing to write home about, and the episodes are pitifully short - probably works best as a snack between tasks instead of a binge-watching series.

    Too short, but still one of the best this season
    Note: Written after 4 episodes

    This series has to be one of my favorite series in a long time, it brings back a element of surprise that I've been missing from a lot of series from the past seasons of Anime.

    But don't believe that this is a standard yaoi, this is something even a no yaoi fan enjoys and if you have not starting watching it yet. Do so as soon as possible.

    The only sad ...

    Short but amusing thus far
    What can you say about a 3-minute episode? That it's cute, and kind of goofy-funny, and refreshingly - it's about a guy who likes BL comics. As lover of BL, myself, I can understand, and will continue to watch. If you like the pretty boys, you'll want to watch too. Just don't expect a lot out of it, being that the eps are so short.

    Very funny. Too short
    First off this show is funny. Very nice twist of comedy and subject matter. It is really short so you might find yourself saying "Why am I watching this?". It served as my cleanup anime after I watched everything else. I don't think it's supposed to turn you on to BL but rather make you laugh. GIve it a shot.

    Intriguing enough so far
    The concept is interesting and refreshing, and I am interested to see where this anime goes, as I've never seen anything quite like it before. I think the short episode length is perfect, since the show doesn't take itself too seriously. If it was any longer, the ridiculous antics of the characters would get boring, I think.

    To short of an anime
    I enjoyed this anime show, it was both entertaining and funny. I think they could have done a good job expanding the storyline and the characters to make full 30 minute length episodes though. I'm looking forward to watching how they introduce new characters and how they develop them.

  • Definitely Hilarious
    I first thought it was going to be off-putting that each episode was so short, but it actually enhanced the humor of each segment. So great to see an anime about a male fudanshi instead of an expected female. I love how the characters react around Gucchi and Nishihara's lack of relationship.
