So i watched the first episode.
The plot is completely silly and absurd. It feels like an idea by Tamaki from Ouran High School Host Club. It's totally crazy.
And there is a guy, the best looking one between the bishies, that likes to take his shirt off.
I don't know if i will keep watching this.
I have yet to understand what the point of this show is, but I'll keep watching for Kimura Ryohei.
The animation is very bright and colourful- regardless of how this anime turns out, it's visually pleasing to say the least.
(I think it would be better with a 12 min episode.)

Omg this anime was amazing, feels similar to the artstyle or even plot style of This Boy Can Fight Aliens, and nearly just as friendly too. In any event, I love Hayato so much.
Even if he gets picked on all the time, but he is just so sweet and incredible and his undying devotion to soma.
Also the We are meganebu! All you need is M E G A N E song is addicting.
I like Hayato too! I'm always a sucker for butt monkeys.
It seems as if the rest of the club members actually needs the glasses whereas he's just wearing it because he likes it.
Despite my better judgment, I decided to watch this anime. I couldn't handle Free before, I do not know what will make me be able to handle this one.
I kinda regret it. It is so silly beyond imagination, I almost vomit. As a person who is wearing glasses herself, looking at their club, I just... can't. Not to mention, their intention to make the X-Ray glasses is very perverted.
At first, I decided to watch because I love how Yukiya looks, then after I watched eps 01, I regretted it. It turns out he's the taking-his-shirt-off-for-weird-reason type. I almost dropped this series if it is not because of Akira's lil bro. He's so cute, looks like the sanest person around, and is voiced by Atsushi Kousaka! Also, some of my favorite seiyuu are there, though some haven't appeared yet because they voice the student council members. I'll just bear the silliness until the student council appears... after that... let's just see later.
3 was probably the episode most closest to being bl or such and it was glorious. Mitsuki and Soma scene when he was staring at him through the glasses and getting all excited because he could see all of him was way too funny and then the sad story of the glasses (but sleeping together and bathing together) was so lovely, and even the make up apology. Best episode yet.
↑ Since the episodes are self-contained and my two faves (Hayato & Yukiya) have already had a story focused on them, I was planning on skipping the third episode and go straight to the fourth.
However, I might have to go watch now that you described what happens.
