This short anime was amazingly funny, though you need to get past the animation style. I will say that the animation style is unique with the pointed hair style and faces on all the handsome men.The main character is faceless and a bit more of a traditional anime character.

We follow Yoshiaki Maeda as he transfers into a new school filled with handsome men. He gets pressured into finding true love and he is reluctant due to it be an all boys school. He has 4 classmates and a teacher attracted to him. We have the bad boy, the childhood friend, the other transfer student, the student council president and the art teacher. Though each episode is only 3.5 minutes long, we get to see them play with some very common Shoujo tropes. This anime was not made to be a shonen-ai but rather a comedy based on how unrealistic the shoujo tropes are.

This is totally worth the watch, and I can recommend it. Though it took me some time to get over the drawing style, it doesn’t distract from the story at all, if anything it adds to it.
