First off, I think both sides of the B issue are right. The opening makes it rather clear that the girl is a B-cup, and she's also in class B. There are a lot of B's around her, and the "(g)kata" kanji simply means form, model, type, etc. Whatever the intended meaning is, the author made sure that she was classified as B in many ways.
I must admit, the initial premise was rather unappealing to me. I feel that, fiction or not, anything on that path should involve a close, one-on-one, personal relationship. For one thing, I've heard too many real stories of people doing everything right and still having unexpected surprises; it's like going from Russian roulette to avoiding a jackpot at a casino, there's still that chance. I say don't do something designed to achieve a certain objective unless you're prepared for that objective to be forced upon you. Also, this seemed a little too much like certain types of stories I occasionally come across in manga: a guy falls for a girl and begins to aim for a relationship. Right when he starts to think things are going well, he finds her with one or one hundred guys in a situation that leaves no room for misunderstanding. It's bad enough for the guy to lose the girl, but something like that is just too much to stomach.
Watching it, however, made me change my mind. First, it looks like it's going to take the angle that, once truly in love, there's no need for the other ninety-nine. Second, anyone who knows her well enough to pursue a real relationship will find out about her almost immediately, so it's not likely he'll be caught unaware. More importantly, however, it's just too absurdly hilarious.
This actually reminds me a bit of what I've seen of School Rumble, with the crazy plots and misunderstandings. True, it's a very, VERY ecchi SR, but the general concept is the same. This girl really overcomplicates things. I'd say she should get her girl friends together for a discussion. First, have them drop their drawers so they can see if there's anything unusual; if there is, call a doc. Second, ask them for help and advice, at the very least this girl needs a wingman, to hold her back, jump in when she's drowning, and, most importantly, to take a few moments to let her targets know just what kind of beast is hunting them.
Yamada's little sister seems much cooler and even knowledgeable in the way she is able to deal with her sister. It would be a bit of a surprise if the heroine finds out that her sister is already far ahead of her. At least some of her friends/family must have a little experience on some level, and it would be interesting to see how the girl handles this.

I watched the first episode with three friends who I don't think could get over the premise after I told them. I wanted to enjoy it and I did, whereas they didn't, so I guess that just goes to show what expectations can do.

The way the premise was portrayed was actually a lot less far-fetched than I thought it would be; in some sense, dare I say it, realistic. Yamada's just going through that stage of puberty when she's both fascinated by and extremely naive about sex; hence she sets this really unreasonable goal for herself and hilarity ensues when she realizes she has no idea what she's doing.

I also rather liked the art style. Anyway, it made me laugh plenty, gonna keep watching this for now.

The backgrounds look obscenely out of place in a few scenes, like in the library or when they were sitting around in the kitchen. Ugh.

This was way more entertaining than I thought it'd be. I think I'll be following this one.

I don't know why but the premise was just so ridiculous, I think I might have just passed this off as a typical romcom ala lovely complex, but it's surprisingly witty. kousuda's sister is looker, and for a girl who wants to lose her virginity she's quite the one to be afraid of guys using her/her image for their pleasure.

I really like the humor in this...I'm not sure if there's a word for it, but to describe I say, "severe misunderstandings" where both parties more or less have no idea what the other is thinking or want.

I didn't mean it was terrible just average, my POV was probably skewered a bit after watching something like Heroman though. >_>

the ending reminds me of a scene in the manga, "My Balls" where even a demon from the underworld is scared to death of the male organ..

Hmm... from what I gather, it's your typical ecchi harem anime (complete with spineless male hero and all) but told from the viewpoint of the main heroine? Can't say the show impressed me (only mildly amused by some of the jokes), but it didn't annoy me either.

That said, I like this type of Tamura's voice. When I first heard it, Katanagatari came into my mind, and I rather liked her there moreso than her other roles.

Although I wasn't very impressed with the synopsis, I must say that I really enjoyed the first episode only because of Yamada. I have a feeling that she's going to make me laugh a lot more as the series goes on. While Yamada seems like a nice female lead, I'm not really feeling Kosuda, he just feels too generic so far. I hope he changes my mind though because I'm pretty tired of these types of male leads, it's just too common.

I definitely wouldn't make this call yet. The OP and ED suggest pretty strongly (armlocks and paintings on the wall) that at least two of the several girls we see in them have their own boyfriends.

Mmm, not harem in the 4 vols of the manga I've poked. There are rivals though. And I guess love triangles?
Spoiler for zomg boytoys and other junk:
Also, Yamada's younger sister ftw.

Watched the first EP . It was so lulz-worthy ~ .

Replaced my old avatar (of 2 years!) with an animated one made from the OP . Was quite a challenge to get the size down :x

Funny, I also thought of Elyse at the start of OreTama. For those who don't know the situation, the Demon Queen is imprisoned in a loser's testicle and Elyse has to get her out within a month; the simplest way is to force him to climax, but the moment she sees his member erect she panics and knocks him out.
I hope Yamada doesn't continue to think that she needs to get her first and the rest will be easy. I don't want to imagine a guy falling for her, dating her, having her, and then the next day finding her out scouting for additional partners. As I said earlier, I hate stories like that.
This seems like a rather interesting start to the Spring lineups. I would've thought that KissXSis would provide more than enough H, but apparently not. I'm not surprised to see multiple ecchi comedies at the same time, I'm surprised to see two shows that push the bar this hard.
BTW, to those who have read the manga, is there anything going on with the little sister, either in terms of experience or romantic interests?
Also, just what is that she's bathing in? It looks almost like milk or yogurt.

Well except from the obvious (that the main female character thinks like a sl*t) the anime seems funny

I think the ending will be cliche...
She will fall in love with the protagonist-male of the story and she will understand of how stupid she was in believing that she would find true happiness by having sex with 100 partners
