The story follows two teenagers named Endo & Kobayashi, who are part of the broadcast club in their high school. Kobayashi comes across an Otome game and forces Endo to play it too. Though Endo doesn’t know that game would leave his heart shattered in pieces. Both of them feel bad for the villainess Liselotte, who is a tsundere and loves her fiance Siegward – the crown prince of the kingdom. She is gentle & kind in the heart but her words always get the best of her.
In the end, she is possessed by an evil witch and meets her demise. But Endo & Kobayashi decide to play the game again, but this time they lay out all their emotions as commentary. Their words reach Seigward, who thinks that these are the words of Gods. Now, these “high school gods” decide to save Liselotte’s life by telling the world what she keeps in her heart for others.
The series is a joyride, more or less, of Shoujo with some entertaining romance and high-quality comedy. The manga art was very beautiful and elaborate. So, the anime adaptation is also expected to be a banger as well.
