I'm sad this will be a short, 3 minutes per episode isn't enough! But if you enjoy random comedy anime like Osomatsu-san and Cromartie High School, you should definitely check this out!

Three Episode Impression

There are harem, BL, ecchi, and school romance shows, and then there is Gakuen Handsome. If you don’t like it, we suggest you have several seats because you take yourself and your anime too seriously. 10/10, this show has some of the worst art ever, but that is how it is intended to be, which in a twist, actually makes the show fantastic. The characters as well, while unique, are all weird, but fit together cohesively to make up this BL romance story. Adapted from a game that was also a parody of the entire BL and harem genres, Gakuen Handsome will leave you in tears for some of the stupid antics that go on. Yoshiki has gotta find love “even though he is a guy!”, as he goes to an all boys school known for having pretty boys. Chins to the floor, eyes that make you come back for more, Yoshiki has Sakuya, the delinquent and soccer king, Renji, the uptight straight-A student, Takuya, the shoe-in childhood friend, and Shinya, the weird transfer student who could be violent, to choose from. Kick back, relax, and let’s see who he chooses. This is a must watch, for sure.
