The Shomin Sample (Ore ga Ojō-sama Gakkō ni "Shomin Sample" Toshite Gets-rareta Ken or I Was Abducted by an Elite All-Girls School as a Sample Commoner) television anime is based on Takafumi Nanatsuki's Ore ga Ojō-sama Gakkō ni "Shomin Sample" Toshite Rachirareta Ken light novel series. Funimation describes the show:
Kimito Kagurazaka is a extraordinarily average. Average grades, average abilities, average looks, average love life (nonexistent). That is, until one day he's abducted by a mysterious organization and forced to enroll a super secret, super elite academy for the richest, classiest, elitest of the elite young ladies. Turns out Kimito has been chosen as a “commoner sample” to better help the isolated and naïve girls cope with entering into normal society. But there's a catch—Kimito isn't allowed to show any romantic or sexual interest in the girls, lest he face gruesome repercussions. Can this commoner enter the secret world of high society?
Masato Jinbo (Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei!, Nozo × Kimi) is directing the anime at the studio Silver Link. Kento Shimoyama (Bleach, Servant × Service) is in charge of series composition.
