Urashima Keitarou is a loser. He's failed the Tokyo University entrance exams two years in a row, and his parents have finally kicked him out of the house. Penniless and destitute, he travels to his grandmother Hinata's inn, hoping she'll put him up until he can get into Tokyo U and fulfill his promise with his childhood sweetheart (whose face he can't even remember). Unfortunately - or perhaps fortunately - it turns out that the inn is no longer an inn... it's an all-girls dormitory, as he discovers in his typical blundering fashion by grabbing an eyeful and more of every girl in the place! Narusegawa Naru, a fiery-tempered high school student and the first victim of Keitarou's lewd bungling, wastes no time doling out brutal punishment and preparing to kick him back out to the street. But wait! A letter has come from grandma Hinata, and Keitarou is to be the dorm's new live-in manager! Is this a blessing from heaven, or has he been cursed to a living hell?
Compared to other idol series, IdolM@ster Break goes full force with harem comedy, including accidental touching, misunderstandings, a shy lead male, and the occasional (uncalled for) kick in the face. I couldn't think of a better recommendation than the most well-known harem series, Love Hina! Although Love Hina has much more romance mixed in, the humor of both of these shows are very similar. If you enjoyed one, you'd most likely enjoy the other as well.
