    Episode 1

    Her boyfriend is a fifth grader?

    That was a pretty decent start there, and the humor was pretty solid there. That is such an interesting couple there with a shy girl and a teen-looking elementary school kid, as well as all of his teen-looking friends. Certainly, the concept is really something having Kaho living with a bunch of bishonen who are actually younger than they look, and the results are that this could be a fun show or not. I'll give it another episode or two before deciding on this show. I kinda like it, but I'll see where this goes seeing that while they hit on some jokes, they missed on others like the whole wiener talk.

      Re: Episode 1

      Dang, those thighs... Kept looking at Kaho and wondering if this really was a reverse harem show as I thought it was going to be (and is). She quirkier than the usual lead of that kind of show too. But I guess she has to be, given how strange the premise of this is. So much that they're self-aware of it. Kaho is kept up all night thinking about all sorts of strange scenarios we might see in another anime and of course she never hits on it.

      There's somehow more than one of these primary school bishounen, which makes it seem even more weirder than something like Recorder and Randoseru when you see them lined up next to the rest of the class. And they all act their age. I wonder if we'll have problems with misunderstanding authorities here, but it doesn't seem like it. The teachers just seem to treat them as ordinary rowdy kids.

        She makes great faces, so it has that going for it. You know having one guy tall for his age makes it amusing, but after they revealed multiple of them, I can't help but wonder if this show is making fun of anime with those girls who are super developed at 10,

        In any case, aside from "I'm tall" shock value & the faces, this was kind on the weak side for me. Maybe it gets better later? For now I might just let others test the waters.

          Very weird, creepy premise, and then it devolves into wiener jokes. Nope!

            Episode 2

            House of virgins.

            The rest of the main cast is introduced with Kanade's father and Chiaki's boyfriend Arashi. Arashi is quite the otaku there and a huge fan of Renren. In all of this craziness, Kaho is starting to really lose it, and Atsushi really pushes her towards the edge there. But Kanade comes in to deliver a forehead flick to let her know that Kanade really loves her. That was pretty funny, though the virgin and wiener jokes still continue to irritate me. I'll give it another episode or two before deciding on this show, but at the moment it's either one of the last shows in or first ones out.

              Episode 3

              Let them eat cake on a stick.

              Seeing Kaho fantasizing like that is pretty funny there. So Kaho and Kanade have their first date, and seeing that he is an elementary school kid that they couldn't do anything extravagant, so they connect with each other in the park through a sand done tunnel, and then the boys play dodgeball in front of a dagashi shop, and then Kaho and Kanade eat cake on a stick before they kiss each other. Too bad Shinohara was watching that was quite a punch in the gut for him that he broke his phone over it. And Kaz's English is really something. It's a better episode seeing that they did away with the wiener jokes, but still it has issues.

              So with that, I'll give it one more episode before deciding on this show. It's on the cusp, but given how crowded the season is getting for me that I need to cut back somewhere, and so far it's on the outside looking in.

                Episode 4

                She sees Paris, she sees France. She smells some guy's underpants.

                Here comes Mafuyu, who is called in to tutor Kanade as his grades are just abysmal. But she's a yandere as this high school girl doesn't want others to know that she's been keeping underpants of the guy she's in love with, and she turns into a monster as Kaho found out. While the whole part about Mafuyu going crazy is funny, all of those manservice jokes just fall flat.

                So with that, I think I had enough of this show. While the concept is good, all of those sexual jokes are getting repetitive and stale, and I need to make room somewhere with my slate already overflowing.
