Something makes me think this series is made to mock goobergators. Just the name itself tells a lot, also a plus is the entire thing about the white male character not liking (a) "black history" - subtle. Laughing And this is completely fine with me.

How did I guess correctly that the main character will have huge boobs?

I think you're reading too far into the white/black thing; the MC isn't even white, he's asian, and referring to one's unfortunate past as a "black history" has nothing to do with black people. Not everything is about race, least of all in anime.

The artwork in the anime reminds me of Haganai.

Same character designer, I think.

Edit: Nope, I'm wrong. That's someone else. Ignore me. Embarassed

Because it's yet another anime that panders to male otaku, of course! Razz

Hey now, just as many male otaku like flat chests, thank you very much.

Personally I expected more people to react negatively to the show being about a male trying to 'fix' a female. Maybe in this case it won't be an issue since she has a legitimate problem that needs addressing.

"Correct" and "fix" are strange choices of words though. I guess it'd be another thing if Ako readily admits she has a problem, and then it'd sound a lot less wrong.

One thing's for sure though: This anime's incredibly direct about what it wants to do. It isn't hiding anything.

Well...., the original work was illustrated by Hisasi. lol

Looking at his bibliography, it'd be more surprising if the art turned out to be more mainstream.

Trust me, Ako definitely needs fixing. She is a danger to herself and those around her. Both in and out of the game.

Wow someone is salty as hell. If anything, Ghazelles are what it's mocking.

Bleh. Didn't like the character designs, the grating generic music and certainly not those voices Confused

There's no denying, your eyes deceived you, there is an equal proportion of boobage between the characters, the only ones who shrink are the younger ones.

What other white male character? The one in the preview, obviously speaking English, pay attention.

Yeah, the whole fixing thing does sound strange, but I still want to check out exactly what the problem is.
