Newly airing anime Level E has the distinction of being one of the few recent series not to focus almost solely on schoolgirls – and viewers are acclaiming it as one of the best of the season.

The anime itself is a science fiction comedy, adapted from a Shonen Jump manga from the last century, accounting for its retro/realistic art style.

As it is all but devoid of moe, there will doubtless be plenty of enthusiasm for it in some quarters – although whether this translates into sales is another matter.

    Nice one. Pantsu and boobs are nice, but a good story sometimes is good too.

    Who said that picture was a futa? Maybe it's a GUY who enjoys wearing pink pantsu. Didn't "Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?" teach us that even male (zombies) have a masou-shoujo within each of them?

    lol you people realize that all those comments are exactly what he's fishing for with that avatar and then calling something else gay, right? He even posted the same thing twice (see further down).

    I bet he's jerking off right now to all the attention he's getting, bless his soul. ;)

    LOL, anon 10:32 might be on to something

    also i posted it "twice" cause my comment didn't show up first time, then i edited it so it wouldn't give me "duplicate post" bullshit and posted it again, sometimes sankaku commenting system fails at displaying comments in time, there was a time once - my comment appeared only after 2 days..

    liking dicks = gay (except if you are a woman, which is stupid since we all know there are no womans on the internet)

    Comment by no
    10:04 12/01/2011 # ! Good (+0.4)

    Chicks with dicks not being gay is arguable, however I was commenting about penis, commonly referred to as male genitalia, which is the the focus in his picture.

    tl;dr - delicious irony

    So sad, not matter how great a story is..
    If there's no sales/ purchase..
    Noone will publish it..
    The market forces drive the style/ theme/ plot of manga..

    @Anon10:33 if you were around 20 years ago and watched the old genlock subbed VHS tapes you would probably know what I'm talking about.

    I only give credit where credit is due, and I'm not going to give this show credit for appealing to a handful of nostalgic 30-40 year olds.

    If you want originality look elsewhere, or write a show of your own. I guarantee anything you can come up with has already been written.

    The latter.

    Truly a generic title, just from a different age.
    There are way more anime like this than there are moe shows.

    I don't know who said this is "one of the best shows this season", but they should probably get with the times.

    As a 30 yold female, this is the only show Im going to watch this season. Besides some notamina shows, there is usually no un-moe shows only aimed at horny teens

    I agree. Kinda looks typical, like typical before the most recent aesthetic boom.
    Not going to say it's bad, because I haven't seen it to adequately judge it's contents.

    Thats a friggin' stupid thing to say, this actually looks original because it doesn't stuff some random persons underwear in your face every 10 seconds, what is original to you dude? KON? Ore Imouto? This is different from the new crap they put out now.

    Well he's suppose to be gender neutral. As his race technically has no gender.

    His race has a gender?
    I don't want to spoil the show, but there is a particular event in book 3 of the manga...

    Even that goofy anime about the 'Demon Baby Lord' has a sexy buxom Nanny.

    "We're the babes??"? I don't know if that's a spelling error or a statement of sexual orientation.

    The only person saying it's good is Arte fact, because he still believes he lives in the 90s.

    It's unique, but not in a good way it's just a generic show from a 20 years ago.

    Well since Togashi Yoshihiro wrote the manga, I doubt they'll be many girls just feminine men.

    No series can be devoid of 'Moe' because you can consider anything to be 'Moe'. It's just that most Otaku/Fans are 'Moe' for cute girls.

    Whatever the case, this series looks pretty intriguing.

    Well said Actar :D Moe can be anything but most of us tend to group "Anime Girls" and "Moe" together thus making people who don't understand the term properly to thing "Moe" mean's anime's with overly cute to the point of Puking anime girls (I say this cuz about 3 people I know off line actually said that statement).

    Words change meaning everyday and nowadays Moe is practically another word for "cute".

    However, there are shows that are aimed towards targeting(or should I say exploiting) the moe-obsessed group. "Moe style" very much exists and I'm pretty sure that's what the author meant.
