Since this anime is so underrated and the only other review has rated it badly too, I figured it's my job to advertise this anime a little: it's really not as bad as it may seem at first glance. In fact, it's pretty glorious. Gakuen Handsome is a short episode comedy series based on a visual novel, which parodies common tropes found in BL manga/anime/VNs etc.  Story and characters It's hard to talk about the story when it's really just a setting for jokes. In any case, a boy transferring to an all-boys school and learning about (gay) love does not sound all that spectacular. But it's a good setting for what the series wants to do, which is to serve some good comedy to the viewers. The characters are all quirky and memorable. Whether they're weird or cool, none of them are boring, and personally I love them all. Animation The artwork and animation in this anime are crap. And it's done on purpose. Strange, isn't it? But it works wonders to enhance the comedy, and I don't think it'd be fair to give a bad score for animation if the fact that it is bad makes the show better. Who doesn't love some pointy chins? Sound The VAs do a great job, but in the sound department the voice acting is completely overshadowed by the greatness of the OP and - even more so - the ED. Seriously, if that isn't the greatest ED ever then I don't know what is. Overall Don't start this if you want a show with a complex plot or great animation. But if you want a good laugh, Gakuen Handsome won't disappoint.
