I would call this a reverse pervert anime. The girls are the perverts, whereas the guy, in comparison, is tame. The recommended audience would be for those who are looking for a blend of comedy that relies on perverted material as the main appeal, along with a blend of romance that serious, but the intentions are genuine. The idea is fairly straight forward, there are a handful of girls mostly lusting for the main guy. He himself is on a quest to try and find out who left a pair of panties with a love letter. As you can guess, this isn't for those that want something serious or with much in terms of a story, and can't have a totally innocent mind or you won't enjoy it, though now my mind is far less innocent after learning some of these new kinks.

The characters are mostly what makes or breaks it in my opinon, as each character has a very specific kink. There won't be any spoiler as to who is into what, but the hint is that these go beyond what you typically see, like maid/nurse/bunny outfits, though they aren't excluded. This is why most of the entertainment comes from it's characters, just seeing a potential relationship unfold, then wondering and waiting to see what the unusual quality is of that girl. As the title says, the girls seem to be aimed on the cutesy side, which made the kinks more surprising and funny.

The actual owner of the panties seemed fairly obvious within the first few episodes, so this wasn't a mystery. Trying to keep it as vague as possible, but with a fair warning, the resulting person might bother some viewers due to certain reasons, depending on your views and beliefs. The ending is played safe, but open to interpretation, going by the anime only, unless there is a Season 2 someday.

I found this to be very entertaining for the purpose it fills. The soft coloring and gentle music gave a really calming and cute vibe, and after a long day of work, I find that to be comforting, along with the laughs.

Make sure to watch the little scene after the credits on the 12th episode, it explains why the panties ended up with the letter.

This show is awesome! I was apprehensive about the unusual title, but I decided to give it the two episode chance.  (After two episodes if I was not interested, then I would stop watching.) I'm happy that I decided to give it a chance. Yes.. there is a harem, it is ecchi, there is fan service, and raunchy comedy. However, the comedy is so great that I was laughing every episode. In fact, just thinking about certain scenes or dialogue gives a chuckle. The story is complete and has a start-to-finish with a continuous plot. The plot moves along while exploring each character. Since the show is a harem I was looking at the characters as generic "Female A" with "Personality A", but I was so wrong. The characters are much more developed then initial impressions and this development progresses throughtout the show. The animation and sound are both above average. In particular, the eye animation is interesting. Watched the entire show in two seatings.

Another good rom-com. The story revolves around a guy in high school who wants a girlfriend. One day he finds a love letter. which you all might think is pretty normal to receive, right? but there was one more thing left with that letter and it was underwear. from there it all begins. the search for the "undierella" 😂. as the show progresses the MC tries to find out who was the undirella out of the 4 prime suspects. and in the journey to discover the identity of undirella, MC learns about the weird fetishes of all the suspects. In a way the show was able to pack some great punches and also catering to audience. 

Overall it is a good show. Ending was weak. you'll probably figure out the identity of the "undirella" from the start.

This Studio Geek Toys 2019 show is almost just another High School harem rom-com, yet it manages a spark of originality that makes it worth watching. This one proves itself to be just a little special. Our main character is Keiki Kiryu – a good lad who becomes the focus of the affections from a group of girls centred upon the Shodo club where he attends “to make up the numbers”. The central narrative revolves around his attempts to find the identity of his “Cinderella” – the girl who left him am anonymous love confession note. However, whenever he gets close to one of his admirers she is exposed to be some kind of pervert: the girl who wants to him to be her master, the girl who wants to make him her slave, the girl who gets turned on by his smell and wants to steal his underwear, and the girl who wants him to have a gay relationship with his best friend so she can depict it in her BL manga. Then there is his little Sister… So, we have a setup her for a right-riot of an anime show and indeed it does deliver a lot of fun. Unlike so many other clueless harem protagonists, the character of Keiki is not as irritatingly naive as the usual stereotype is expected to be. On the contrary, he is actually exceptionally bright and charming. No wonder the girls like him. Despite his lack of experience, he is well accomplished in his search for Cinderella. The fact that he isn’t the usual dork makes him a likeable main character.

This show’s genius manifests during a side-plot involving a girl called Koharu Otori who blackmails Keiki into setting her up with his best friend Shouma Akiyama This story-arc occupies episodes 5, 6 & 7 and is worthy of attention for the witty dialogue between the three protagonists. Koharu has been stalking Shouma for a year and her club room is covered in his photos. Shouma’s discovery of the photos becomes a bit of a running joke and is subject to one of the best visual gags you will ever witness in anime…. This alternative story, buried in the middle of the show, really sets it off nicely. The other highlight is the show’s ending. Most of us will have probably guessed the outcome as it is hinted at early on. However, when it hits it hits hard and blossoms into its own little sub-plot as a certain story element is NOT what the audience has been led to believe. This rounds it all off very neatly to make this a cut-above your average harem rom-com show. The work is spawned from the light novels of Tomo Hanama and was later developed into manga, a drama CD, an RPG browser game and web radio show. It keeps you on your toes and it is chock full of surprises. It just goes to show that some exceptionally sharp writing and a brilliant imagination can wring new life out of a tired old genre. Some critics seemed unable to see the depth and originality in this which is a pity. It is a show worthy of your time as it is highly enjoyable and a lot of fun. It pushes the envelope in also being very cheeky and very sexual. It is exactly the sort of show that only Japanese anime can produce with a straight face. The whodunnit nature of the plot drives it purposefully along at a breathless pace and our hero gets himself into all the usual embarrassing situations. This is definitely one to watch. Do not judge this book by its covers. It is far better than the silly long title gives it credit for.
