Why do I have a feeling that this anime isn't going to either do well or be that well-reviewed?

I haven't been this excited for a title since...I dunno. My reaction to this was very loud. Anime hyper

Karbowski may be the closest thing to Yukari Tamura we'll get, that was nearly spot-on.

The show's actually pretty funny. In fact it's kind of like a more Japanese version of The Last American Virgin or one of John Hughes' more-memorable teen sex comedies.

This one was on my "You'll never see it in the USA" list, let alone getting dubbed by what looks like a pretty good cast.

Here's hoping it is a sleeper hit for Funimation.

Bleh. Boring s**t it is, uses the lure of girl wants to ride 100 guys then she quickly ends up only wanting one. Would have been better to me if it's start wasn't just a way to try and make a romanctic comedy seem unique because it isn't, maybe if Yamada actually gave at least 6 guys a taste of heaven before settling on Kosuda. I'm not finishing this, only watching extreme fanservice episodes, same applies to Asobi, Otoshimono Forte and Rosario which are shows Funi has.

Just a note: Kristi Bingham is Kristi Kang and that is now the name she is using for credits.

Same.. but I said the same about Queens Blade and then that happened.

All we need is Seikon no Qwaser and we'll be all good.

Anyway, love the show, one of the underrated gems of 2010 that got overlooked.

Difference is that Queen's Blade is very well made show despite plot and narrative. B-Cupped Slut is not, besides there being zero nudity and nothing actually develops between the two main leads. Perhaps the manga isn't so pointless.

It's a great show, but I refuse to watch dubs with Greg Ayres. Other than him, the dub might be ok though.

Think of it this way: Sex-obsessed virgin is on a quest to get laid, but has no real idea what she's doing and has insecurity issues on top of that, so she decides to use another virgin for experience before moving on, but finds out that even getting into his pants is a bigger challenge than she thought it'd be. That's the source of conflict. It follows the universal formula of "Somebody wants something badly and is having difficulty getting it." The important thing is just that Yamada really, really wants some nookie. Variation in said nookie is secondary.
