Well it has a pretty weird premise, with giant bishie youngsters in silly clothing as the main selling point towards a more grown up protagonist.

Not that the age-gap formula hasn't been used, I mean Neko to Watashi no Kinyoubi from Arina Tanemura is one such example, albeit in a more sweet and more serious narrative.

This one here seems to be merely for massive lulz and weird fantasies with bishies on ridiculed style.

I could not say how much "lulz" this is, but as I see it, this is mostly comedy rather than romance.

I am so confused from that synopsis... But it's a nice change for the guy to be on the front cover.

And of course it gets a pass. If you have a show say like ryo kyu bo where its a male high school-er and female elementary kids, its the end of the world, but if its flipped its perfectly okay. Gotta love those double standards. This one is arguably worse as they are actually "going out" while in ryo kyu bu its only ship tease.

The clothing looks good for them, I am open minded about that.
