Look at all of the bishounen! I am so pumped for this anime!

Recently anime about Japanese culture has been a bit of a hit. Look at shows like Sangatsu no Lion and Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu. It only makes sense that Kabukibu! would be next.

Plus it is CLAMP in charge of the original character designs! Rumor has it too that they have some control over the anime character desisgns as well. Cardcaptor Sakura, xxxHolic, Tsubasa: Resivoir Chronicle! Everone is going to look great!

However, this isn’t met with much enthusiasm, and it takes all Kuro’s got to get his teacher to agree to even let him start an appreciation club. Even then, he has to gather four other members. So, he starts recruiting others along with his best friend, a guy with glasses called Tombo.
