  • An interesting anime.
    The entire time I watched this anime, I really questioned what I was watching and how I even ended up watching it. But after finishing it, I'm kinda happy I watched it? I don't know. I'm not really a fan of it but I will give it credit for making me laugh at some points.

    Overall, not my taste at all but its goofy and has some good parts so it's okay.

  • Unique Short Concept with Tasteful Approach
    This show is really charming! I went in expecting just a funny show, but it actually approaches a very real scenario with understanding and cleverness. The main character is a guy who loves BL manga but also identifies as straight. Naturally, this leads to some funny confusion scenarios, but the show never seems to force the plot one way or another...it's almost a mystery in this sense - will he ...

  • Kind of enyojed it. (how freaking long does the title have to be for crunchyroll to accept it!?)
    I kind of want to give it four stars, but that would only be my humour shining trough. What I like about it is how the charcters mostly accept love between two males, even thought they might not want to be a part of it.

    The whole straight boy liking BL manga is an intressting subject in it self. I could probably be sorted into the bisexual folder, but I tend to dislike yuri manga. Especially ...

  • Giggle fest and daughter
    This anime is hilarious. The jokes are very well timed and well written.

    I watched it in one sitting, and was somewhat sad when I got to the end. The main character being straight is also very amusing.

    The situations felt oddly recognizable. Must watch!

  • Pretty good short anime!
    Hoonestly if you're looking for an anime that is only 3-5 minutes long that's also funny you should check this out. The male characters are all really cute and the main character is really funny. If you like Boys Love and comedy then check it out. It's not homophobic at all so you don't have to worry about dealing with an offensive show! I honestly would have given it 5 stars if it was longer and ...

  • A Look From The Other Side
    We always hear about Fujoshis: The girls in love with the men who love men, but what about the guy fans? We never hear about them because they either don't exist or aren't as open about it as the girls. It's nice to get a short form anime about the life of a man who enjoys yaoi. Pretty quick watch and something nice to watch in between the long anime.

  • Entertaining but......
    I honestly found this one a little hard to choke down. I really enjoyed a good laugh here or there but the main male protagonist left me feeling like there was much to be desired. It lacked personality and depth into the actual life at the high school.

  • So cute and funny!!!
    I really liked this series. In my opinion, it does a fairly good job of portraying yaoi fandom without implying that yaoi is a realistic portrayal of LGBT lifestyles. The humor is charming and the tone is pleasantly light hearted. Its super cute. Thank you for reading.

  • A subtle jab at Fu-s
    The show is hilarious! And also interesting at how it pokes at the fudanshi/fujoshi worldview. Not only does it show the inner workings of a fu-mind, it shows the contrasting mindset with his non-otaku friend (i.e. how real people react to such things). There's also the main character's inner contradiction on how awkward certain BL tropes are (episode 2 quote: "This would be great as BL but not in ...

  • Wanted more, but that's not a bad thing
    I watched this after I caught up on episodes of Recovery of an MMO Junkie as I was just looking for something quick -- and this is definitely quick. Too short, actually, but I found it fairly charming. Was a little worried from the reviews that it might be homophobic but I didn't find it that way--though it's also so short that there's not much time to develop things either way, so your mileage ...
