Quote:

Hino Akiharu lost his parents when he was an elementary student and was taken in by his uncle's family. One day, he sees on the news about the newly-established Hakureiryou Gakuin, a school which was re-built from an elite girls' school. He decides to take the exam for that school and succeeds in entering the House Management Department (the place to train maids & butlers). He wants to become a butler, although his appearance scares the ladies. Akiharu has a sinister look in his eyes, a scar on his right eyebrow, and bristled up hair. Add 3 piercings on his ears and he indeed has a typical bad boy look on him.

He meets his "nemesis" at that school, Saikyou Tomomi, a girl with a two faced character who traumatized him many times since they were kids. Another girl named Cernia Iori FlameHeart chases after him because of his looks and calls him suspicious. Still, Akiharu starts finding his feet at the school and his relationships with the girls also get better...

Why am I not surprised to see Ayako and Xebec together?

Mizuno 2009-09-09 08:03

I just looked at some of the raw, I think I understand now why they have Kanokon's director doing this...

musume_no_hoshi 2009-09-09 15:57

The title is misleading, I thought this was aimed at girls. You know...fujoshis do LOVES butlers. Well nevermind.

It's not aimed at me, so 'no comment' from me.

The manga is up on some site and the story's quite cute. Drill girl (lol) is a delicious tsundere.

Avisch 2009-09-12 10:54

Goody. Random cute-ness is always appreciated.

Same reason half of Zetsubo-Sensei's VAs were Maria+Holic

And that reason is....?

I haven't watched Maria+Holic, so have no idea who the seiyuus are in that show.

Saymon 2009-09-12 13:47

it seems good but xebec...

kramerica 2009-09-12 13:53

For a sec I thought it looked like some sort of battle royale between epic tsunderes vs combat butlers, but I can only dream of something like that ever happening.

...means a lot of fanservice? :P
It says it's shounen but I can only see it as comedy/romance/drama...I mean how exactly is the plot going to unfold?

Midonin 2009-09-12 14:39

"Shounen" is a demographic, not a genre. It can be both.

Kafriel 2009-09-12 14:42

Thanks for clarifying that, it got shounen as a genre in the OP :)

Shadow Kira01 2009-09-13 10:13

I don't think this anime will turn out to be a shounen one. Its most likely the crossover of Hayate no Gotoku! and some ecchi love comedy.

Its a light novel series aimed at teenage boys, so yes its a shounen(boy's) light novel series.

Lummie 2009-09-13 16:39

If the anime is gonna be like "They Are My Noble Masters" , then i'm definitely sold.

-Sho- 2009-09-13 17:55

The first cover remember me a card in the game "Dengeki Gakuen RPG" .
Well , seems a very ecchi anime .
"Genre = Shounen" . I though it was Shojo .
No pics for the guy ? seems a yakuza's like .

Oh , and yeah , you add Kanokon's director , Character designer too then here it comes ECCHIS !

Again, that's not a genre.
