It's very misleading but the name is indeed Gakuen Heaven.
If you read this, you will know why:

You mean there are more episodes of this forth coming??!! I thought it was the biggest spoof ever. I laughed until I hit the floor. It was truly awful. Of course, I also paused it everytime my bf walked in the room to avoid spewing.

Hum, I didn't find the (spoiler) in the episode I saw... Was it a parody-sub by any chance? Kinda sounds like it from your description. O_o

But other than that, I thought it was quite good. Although it looks like the series is a bit heavy on the intrigue between people at the school (see the spoiler button), I get the impression it'll have a more involved plot than, say, Sukishou. I haven't played the game, though, so I don't quite know what to expect. Still, I'm looking forward to the next episode - it looks promising. :3



PS: Is it the aarinfantasy that has posted above? *stares with big, admiring puppy-dog eyes*

So as it's subbed by aarinfantasy, can we safely assume it's yaoi?

I'm wondering, how yaoi is it? Like explicit kissing like in Loveless, or just undertones? (like Maria-sama but yuri)

I'm sorry. I should have clarified that I was watching a parodied sub of the first episode (thanks live-evil). I didn't realize it was a parody until after I dl'd it. Even if you have no tolerance for yaoi (or even shonen-ai), it would be worth your time to watch the parody. I'm half-afraid to get the real subs now as they won't be nearly as funny.

Lady Artemis: I've been given the impression that it is leans more into yaoi than Loveless. Loveless is strictly shonen-ai. Of course, I haven't seen more than the first episode as cut; so, I don't that my opinion is particularly valid. That is just what some of the rabid-fangirls suggested.

Well I decided to watch the first ep and couldn't get through past 10 mins. To be honest, if I'm going to watch something like Gakuen Heaven, the guys need to at least be bishi/good looking, and the art has to be up to a certain standard. Gakuen Heaven didn't meet either of those criterias.

Plus the baseline seems like your typical harem anime where you have a bunch of people interested in the new transfer student, just that in this case they're all boys.

With many other series I'm interested in watching this season, this just didn't do it for me.

After watching episode 4, I take that back. I suppose it's not surprising, given that the anime is based on a BL game, but the story has indeed devolved into excuses to show cutesy shounen ai behaviour.
