It does look really interesting. And I didn't really fall out my seat laughing, I was more happy in a way. It's nice to see that the main character isn't some super-hot/cute looking "skinny/muscle" guy, yet in this show it's all the opposite.

Plus the story revolves around a *Bullied* middle school boy, I can't tolerate bullies at all; so when I see how this kid's life gets "changed" after meeting this girl going from being picked on to being this bad-ass Knight- I hope he kicks ass, and gets the chance to beat up the people that picked on him...seeing that would make me stand up and give a round of applause to this boy ( that is IF that happens...most likely not but ^^ who knows )

I may just start reading the Light Novel for this series and get a taste of the series before it starts. I have already done this for Sword Art Online.

I haven't read the light novels or the manga my self, but I here there both quite good. I believe the novels won the Dengeki Novel Prize in 2008 so that certainly doesn't hurt.

Remove the school, the butterfly girl and the ridiculous looking male lead and you might get a decent show.

The way the MC looks is exactly the point of the story. He's a short, fat loser with low self-esteem who's bullied at school until this one girl helps him to learn overcome his weakness.

Yeah, he's one freaky looking dude, but it looks to be decent without the cliched looking male lead, (Guilty Crown, anyone?). I'm looking forward to this one.

I don't get it.
He wants to make you "vomit"?
He doesn't look disgusting in any way, he's just short and burly.
And I'm really interested in a show that at least tries to take on a fresh turn on a male lead instead of putting "generic hunk X" for the gazillionth time into the role of the hero.

Did anyone notice that the lead character is voiced by Shu from Guilty Crown? Not to mention that the main character is sort of in the same shoes as Shu because he wanted to live his average/crappy life without much change.

love the idea of the main character´s design (chubby and short), but wish it would be a little less caricaturesque, like the rest of the characters are, that way you could take him more seriously... been watching anime for 15 years and im tired of all main leads looking too idealistic.
