Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru Screen Caps

aka Maidens are Falling in Love with Me
This anime is based on a visual novel, originally an Adult PC game it was later released as a videogame for the PS2 with the sexual encounters cut. The game must have been popular in Japan as it spawned 3 novels including a dojin by the game creator, a manga along with this anime series. It’s basically a cross-dressing harem anime. The main character Mizuho Miyanokouji abiding by his grandfather’s last wishes transfers to an all-girl’s school. He’s voiced by Yui Horie who happens to be one of my favorite seiyuu, after seeing Fruits Basket and Zero no Tsukaima . Mizuho who know’s nothing about cross-dressing is aided by his childhood friend Mariya, she along with his teacher are the only people who know that he’s a boy. Takako is the student council president she’s the tsundre of the harem and perhaps the only girl not in love with him.

Screen caps below are from the special that was released on DVD it could be considered the 13th episode but it really is not related to the storyline of the anime rather it’s a comic side story fairytale titled “Tsunderera” with appearances by Snow White. The characters are usually super deformed and it was the funniest episode of an enjoyable anime series. While it is a harem anime and there are a few ecchi scenes it really feels a lot more like “Maria-sama ga Miteru” then a fan service series like “Shuffle”. I’d recommend this to anyone who enjoys harem animes particularly Ouran High School Host Club or dramas like Hanazakari no Kimitachi e. The show has been licensed by Media Blasters, but when I checked their website I couldn’t find any mention of proposed release dates.
