Based on the light novel series by Daisuke Suzuki, with illustrations by
Kyourin Takanae that ran an impressive seventeen volumes starting in
2004, 2007 saw the release of this twelve episode series alongside a
four volume manga adaptation of it by the same author. The animation
production was done by AIC Spirits which is a studio I've come to enjoy a
good deal of when they dabble in properties like this as they harken
back to the big eyed fanservice and fun style that I do find appealing
when done well. What could possibly set this show apart a bit from other
ones of the male lead with lots of girls surrounding him is that the
Shungo isn't exactly a complete wimp. In fact, he's been well trained at
hand to hand combat and can handle himself very well in difficult
situations, which we see at the start here as he both deals with taking
down a bear in winter and then coping with the girls of the school who
want to tease him by showing him their panties, something he wants to
get away from for some strange reason.
While Shungo has a fun if difficult enough high school career in front of him, it all goes pear shaped pretty quickly with the arrival of girl from the back of a helicopter that's dropped right on top of him, though she seems pretty fearful of not just him but all the guys that are there. As it turns out, she's a new transfer student who just arrived along with her older brother. Mayu and Mikihiro are a very different pair of characters as he's very flamboyant, but not overly so, while she's very introverted and quiet. What's surprising is that the two of them are going to be staying with Shungo for the duration, which will be difficult for Mayu since she's pretty afraid of boys. When a slew of them show up at the nurses office afterwards and go zombie-like with their interest in her cuteness, it's a creepy yet very amusing scene.
