Anime "erotic comedy" is usually a big red flag for a show that ends up as neither erotic nor much of a comedy (anyone remember the old Life in Hell comic about "Film's greatest paradox: The French are funny. Sex is funny. Comedies are funny. Yet no French sex comedies are funny.").

Sure, it can be done -- Seitokai Yakuindomo* threw so many silly sex gags at the viewer that some of them just had to land. But at worst, we sometimes get stuff that's not just unfunny but repugnant, like Himegoto. At least the description here seems somewhat good-natured and not hateful and exploitative.

Himegoto had the occasional moment...it's one of those things that I, uh, "recommend" to people sometimes. Wink

Wait, that was suppose to be Wakana Ui's voice? I hope not, because she is suppose to be more cheerful (to borderline ignorant in social behavior), yet the narrator sounds too authoritative and serious. If that was Fujisaki Karen's voice, then it fits better.

The title of the series is incorrect. It's "Okusama ga", not "Okusama wa".
