I don't want to sound negative but from seeing this tagline and reading the plotline, I can tell the premise of this show is going to sound ridiculous and probably stupid.

Again, this sounds hillarious, and the staff involved is nothing but promising. Will check this out.

Really wonder how Uchikoshi will make this interesting.

The premise sounds like it could easily be awful, but I'm really liking the character designs and the animation so far. It looks like it could be more fun and clever than it seems on the surface.

Knowing Uchikoshi it will all be revealed that... the boy is the panties!

In all seriousness. I wonder what Uchikoshi is going to do this time.

Plotline like these is the reason I don't watch much anime as I used to.

I might actually bother to watch if Yuta was played by an actual guy.

Personally, I'll give it a few episodes and if the animation quality and directing are similarly catching as the production studio's earlier works I'll probably continue watching based on that; the plot doesn't always have to be highbrow or make any sense for it to be an entertaining watch.

While it sounds pretty cliche at first glance, considering who the head writer is, this show is pretty much guaranteed to have more to it than that.

I might give 1 or 2 episodes a try. But if this plotline is not anything innovative or not impressive to me then I don't have any point of watching this.

Noitamina, get the lead to actually be voiced by a guy and I will probably watch it.
