Of course the male self-insert character lives in Akihabara and is apparently the smart, rational one.

Of course, there is a cat like in Fruits Basket.

What an outsider.

Yes, he can perform quite well in Harem (and pseudo-Harem) shows.

To me, he top girl looking like Haruhi Suzumiya would make more sense to have Aya Hirano playing her.

This character alone might be what keeps me away from the series.

So many Eto-musume, so little time! Smile
Takeru will have his hands full with them in no time flat.

The tease for the snake's personality is off from what I would like to see in a snake zodiac. As a snake zodiac if her character design and personality tease had been more to my tastes I would have been more interested......

Actually, the myth of the Chinese Zodiac animals has it that the Rat outwitted the Cat, and caused it to be late for the meeting, and missed out on getting its own Zodiac slot. (Learned that one from Folktales From Japan.)
Hence Nya-tan "fighting for her place".

Not sure whether the girls' personalities actually represent the Zodiac traits, but we can guess what the Akihabara guy is doing in the story. Confused

I know the story. That's why the cat is an outsider.

Why bother with one nowadays? Didn't they learned anything after the super successful Koihime†Musou anime series?

Aniways, girls look super cute, looking forward to seeing the series.

Or Galaxy Angel, or Bottle Fairy (more or less), or Magical Pokaan, or Magikano (more or less)...
