Synopsis sounds old and tired on paper (depends on the execution though), but I'm still a sucker for dragon girls anyway and I'll check it out even though it seems it'll be the show that Diomedéa will put the least amount of effort into it compared to the other three series they're working for.

I didn't mind Matsuoka voicing more of these types of MCs even if it feels so repetitive right now.

With the upcoming Binan Kōkō Chikyū Bōei-bu LOVE, Kantai Collection Jūō Mujin no Fafnir and Seiken Tsukai no World Break (and Kūsen Madōshi Kōhosei no Kyōkan in April), Diomedéa is showing heavy presence this Winter season.

Well, it can help expand their portfolio that way and offers new opportunities for more publishing companies to pitch more ideas to them.

I swear i've seen these character designs before... How many more variations on school dress attire are left!

Maybe they could choose a new color like Brown... don't think i've seen a series with the main characters were dressed in brown.

Sounds like a job for Descartes.

Well at least shows like this and Absolute Duo are making it easy for me to decide that I should pass them. Just how many harem shows are they going to squeeze into this season?

...darnit.

Sounds like an interesting premise, though. I wonder what direction the story will take. I like the more dramatic stuff, but with this many female characters, I don't know how much of that I should expect...

Special boy goes to all girls school premise seems to pop up ever year. I don't expect this to be any good but I'll probably still watch anyway.

But the girls are the D's, so that doesn't... wait... "Yuu Mononobe, the only male D in the world" ...dammit.

I don't know where this "only girls can do a thing but now a guy can do the thing so they all want his thing" harem concept came from, but it doesn't look like it's going away anytime soon.

This made me giggle like a twelve-year-old at work so I'll give the show a shot but I'm keeping my expectations low. Tired tropes can still make a good show, it's all in the application, and I mean Azumanga Daioh is a classic (so is prince of tennis, though I was never a fan.)
