Series Summary from MangaUpdates:
Ohyama Takeru happily enrolls in a co-ed school that didn't require any entrance exams and has hostels to boot... Only to find out that there's more to the school than he thought!  
Kenn's Comment: I'm trying my best to not sound negative about the series, but it's pretty darn hard to when it's this bad. It's generic; this kind of story has been done many, many times over. It's by no means an uncommon plot set up. The main character is more or less absolutely useless; premise wise, it bears similarities to Sekirei and Freezing, while still being worse than the two. At least they do manage to do stuff while being relatively powerless (in Freezing's case, he's got a bit more up his sleeve). It's also a fanservice heavy series (if you couldn't tell from the PV), so expect some rather...improbable occurances to happen, like falling and grabbing boobs, pulling down skirts and everything like that. All my negativity aside, this is a series that's at 6 volumes and counting (manga) so it obviously does have something to it. I probably won't take this one for a spin come next season (though I won't miss it, I've got more than enough series on my plate), but I'll read and check on it every now and then. Would've thought this would go to Xebec, since this is more or less right up their alleyway.

Oh, and I hate how the protag looks. Just saying. He looks lame, and his lameness is equally reflected in his character.
