Honey’s Highlights

So this is the male version of One Room from winter 2017... Did anyone say Makura no Danshi?

If only there were as many boys in this one! Sadly this focuses on three boys. But with a jock, a cutie, and a sadist, who are you supposed to pick as Best Boy?!

Doesn't this make you think of Starry☆Sky too? With each boy having their own story. This seems like it will be just as relaxing... Or not, depending on how you take it...

If you enjoy anime where the characters talk directly to you through the screen, this is definitely a good way to spend a few minutes of your time! If not, you might want to skip this one!

Synopsis

Following on from One Room, from the creators of Makura Danshi and Anitore EX comes this new virtual anime where you are the protagonist! This time the theme is ‘living together’!

You, who have just become the manager for a Western-style apartment building, meet the three boys who live there. This anime will bring you fun and exciting days and a sometimes sweet, sometimes painful relationship with these colourful characters from your point of view.

Three Episode Impression

The episodes are only four minutes long! Roommate Side M tells the opposite version of the story from the stance of the girl this time. Previously it was a boy. Just as with the girl version, the boy version plays out three very stereotypical roles in its male characters all living together in a house that you, the female protagonist, have come to live in because you could not succeed. Shame on you for being lazy! You now take care of Takumi, a guy obsessed with rock climbing and acts like a dog, Aoi, the loli, but in male form, who is a high school actor, and Shinya, an elite working for a good company, but he has a rotten personality.

This is so bad. I mean, I watched the girl version and yes, it was not that good, but this, somehow this is even worse. I actually cringed multiple times while watching it. The first was when Shinya made his entrance, and the second was when Aoi finished practicing and was drinking the drink you offered him. His eyes literally look like something out of Jigoku Shoujo, and if she crawled out of his eye ring-style, I would not be surprised. I know that this is supposed to be for the ~ladies~, but spare yourself the aneurysm and just go re-watch Free, Yuri!!! On ICE or something that has decent characters and a story.
