Kimito Kagurazaka is a extraordinarily average. Average grades, average abilities, average looks, average love life (nonexistent). That is, until one day he's abducted by a mysterious organization and forced to enroll a super secret, super elite academy for the richest, classiest, elitest of the elite young ladies. Turns out Kimito has been chosen as a “commoner sample” to better help the isolated and naïve girls cope with entering into normal society. But there's a catch—Kimito isn't allowed to show any romantic or sexual interest in the girls, lest he face gruesome repercussions. Can this commoner enter the secret world of high society?
Bear in mind that this review has been written after episode 1 and contains a whole bunch of personal world views and opinions. 5 minutes in to the first and only episode I'll probably ever watch and I'm already mad shit pissed off. Personally I can't really handle animes where ignorance is the glorified standard (they make me feel like punching walls and torturing certain characters to near death). Dude is basically abducted to a girls only private school and just accepts it al without much of a fight. Head maid is a bitch and the school is filled with idiots who are so damn sheltered they barely know of, much less use, any technology from after the industrial revolution. And the school's damn mad shit "how do you even have a brain" idea to fix all of this is by letting a single freaking guy in, oh yeah, and he must be average and gay or else we'll ship him off to an unknown corner of the world where he'll be forced to spend his life in solitary. Characters seem a bit like shallow, off the shelf defaults with not a lot deepgoing personalities. Animation looks nice and clean, and there's nothing wrong with the audio. Overall a dropped/10
Characters are generic but good, I have watched the anime twice, and think its good. DO NOT WATCH THE INTRO, SKIP IT ALLWAYS. It is really disturbing!
Story is the ultimate harem. A guy gets into all-girl boarding school for rich girls, who are completly clueless about the world. Just think about the posibilities. He is taken in as an live example of "commoner" (in japanese "shomin", that is where the anime derives its title from). It is excused as he is mistakenly considered to "lean that way" (in other words they think he is a gay) with particular fetish for muscular men. The comedy is simple and there is not really an overarching story except towards the end. It is mostly just various sketches and otaku refrences (sailormoon, yuru yuri, etc.) This is one of those harems where nothing really changes in the end. It is also the type where is no "chosen girl". One thing I liked about main protagonist is that he is not "the nice guy" all the time. Sometimes he makes practical jokes on one of the girls. He tells her some convoluted story about "common people" to make her do something silly and she is so naive to actually do it. Then there is a trio of girls, all of them to lesser or greater extent tsundere and one pedophilia appeal, the little loli. She gets naked all the time. She is some wierd genius. While she is scriblling some mathematical expressions, she always takes off all her clothes. Characters are simple usual ecchi material. Nothing in particular memorable or original. The animation is average for this kind of show and girls look appealing (which is what the show aims in the first place). Soundtrack is ok with OP song that I liked, but not to the point I would listen to it outside of watching the anime. Overall this is an average ecchi comedy.
