Anime [12 Episodes] | DVD Special [6 Episodes]
This is quite an interesting anime. Here we have a school that breaks up gender into two social statuses. The females are considered to be Ladies and take classes on how to be elegant ladies. The males on the other hand are considered to be Butlers and take classes on how to serve the ladies. Sounds like every feminist's fantasy, doesn't it?
For having such a strong feminist sounding storyline, the anime itself is far from it. This show is packed with fan service. There's nothing better then seeing a spoiled rich girl's boobs flop out after she finished bitching to someone about something completely stupid.
Of course the show has more than just fan service. It actually has a really interesting plot to it. The main character, Akiharu Hino is always being misunderstood, because of his looks. As the story progresses, he slowly makes friends and eventually everyone comes to understand him for who he is. It's quite touching if you think about it. Then again, you'll probably be to busy laughing to notice it.
If you're a fan of Lucky Star, then you might notice how the principle acts and even sounds similar to the blue haired otaku, Konata Izumi. Sometimes I wonder if things like this just happen or if they do this on purpose to see if anyone catches it. I'm sure some of the animating teams like to put things into the shows for the fans to find, but in this case it just seems like it was coincidental.
