Also known as spoiler.
This one is actually good - funny, well-written, well-acted, beautifully drawn, and willing to hit the tropes head-on or dodge them balletically as its whim takes it.
One thing that intrigued me while watching the show was when it was set. One, no cell-phones or computers anywhere; can't be twenty-first century. Two, skirt length, can't pre-date the mid-60's. Architecture (the school has a large, curving glass wall, for example) and transport (the very few cars we see are neither boxy nor sleekly curved) both suggest the 80's or 90's. The male lead has a Super-8 film camera, and it's not highlighted as an anachronism, which points to the early 80's. But there are shelf stereos - CD only - and the cordless phones are bulky but not that bulky, which suggests at least the late 80's, probably the 90's.
That aside, it has a busty redhead, a tomboyish girl who goes hmph, and a twintailed girl who goes ufufufu.
Oh, and railcars. All in all, it's a real throwback, a 90's style comedy with 2012 production values, and definitely one I'll be watching.
A solid three little fishies out of four.

I want to watch it. I wanted to watch it the moment I heard about it. I like Please Teacher, I LOVED Please Twins, I should be drooling over this one like something that drools a lot.
Maybe it's my mood.
