What is it about?
Kae Serinuma is a very kind second-year high school student and a devoted otaku. A little known fact about her, though, is that she’s obsessed with BL, or Boy’s Love. Serinuma can’t help but to fantasize about her male classmates falling for each other and enjoys imagining them together. A more known fact about Serinuma, however, is that she’s noticeably overweight.
While watching her favorite show one day, Serinuma witnesses the death of her most beloved character. Utterly depressed, she can’t muster up the energy to eat her meals, let alone attend school. After an entire week, she finally recovers. But now there’s something unusual about her—during the time she refused to leave her room, she ended up losing a large amount of weight and has somehow become strikingly beautiful!
Now catching the eye of everyone who sees her, she finds herself at the center of attention of four boys she has always known at her school. Though they all wish to spend time with her, Serinuma would much rather they spend time falling in love with one another. How will Serinuma deal with the four boys pursuing her BL-obsessed self?
What did I think?
Okay guys, I know what you might think: “Reverse harem, I should prepare for some weird guys seducing/harassing a girl without any personality.”
At least that’s my overall opinion on most reverse harem anime I’ve seen so far.
But not this one! I love love loved Kiss him, not me!
It’s just so funny and adorable and well-written and funny! (Oops, I said funny twice, well it just really is… funny 😉 )
So first of all: the MC. Well as a fellow female otaku I can totally relate to her! I might not be as BL-obsessed as the MC, but I get what it feels like to be an Otaku with your non-otaku friends and they just told it perfectly in this show.
Next to that, they also captured the amazingness of finding a fellow otaku to obsess with.
The MC is amazing, but the other characters are also very well done. I mean yes, they kinda stereotypically do the guys in the harem into the different ‘types’ of guys so every girl(or boy) will find somebody they’ll like. But the good things about that is: You will like at least one of the guys 😉
And they didn’t just stop at the stereotypical male characters, they actually took time in the story to make every character have some kind of character development and I really like that.
The story is well-written and has the right pace and the art is pretty and colorful.
So in conclusion: if you’re looking for just a fun feel-good anime, this one is definitely worth a watch!
