LDMS: The Wallflower: My Fair Bishonen Enters the Light!


BRIGHTON, UK, 8th MAY 2008

LDMS, in partnership with ADV Films, are pleased to offer the first volume of The Wallflower Lesson 1: My Fair Bishonen, a 6-part DVD series that pits four beautiful boys vs. the Goth chick from Hell! It's the ultimate hostile makeover, and Lesson 1 goes on sale 12th May 2008.

The Wallflower is based on the long-running manga series by Tomoko Hayakawa, 13 volumes of which have already been published in English by Del Rey Manga. The hit manga was adapted by Shinichi Watanabe a.k.a. “Nabeshin,” the comedy auteur responsible for such off-the-wall hits as Excel Saga and Nerima Daikon Brothers. This unconventional tale of a half pint Pygmalion and the four pretty boys charged with turning her into a lady plays right to Nabeshin's strengths, and his adaptation is imbued with a manic energy fans will recognize on sight!

What the Press Said:
“Ticks all the boxes: girls, guys, gorgeous animation and catchy music. This is definitely a series you should add to your collection.” NEO - Editor's Choice

“One romcom anime that definitely shouldn't be left on the shelf.” SFX

The Story:
After years of sponging off a fabulously wealthy older woman, four ridiculously beautiful boys are confronted with the most horrifying challenge ever: use their bishi skills to turn their benefactor's socially challenged niece into a beautiful young lady or start paying rent! And this isn't just any ugly duckling they're facing; she's a psycho, paranoid, neurotic horror movie obsessed goth chick with a fetish for anatomical dummies, bad skin and a total ignorance of all things feminine! (And those are her BETTER points!) But hey, rent's expensive and job openings for pretty boys are scarce, so our poor heroes are going to have to suck it up and attempt the ultimate combined exorcism/spa/makeover from hell! It's a Queer Eye FTSG of doom as the infamous Nabeshin unleashes The Wallflower!
