Next in line on the ´Why is this getting an anime´ list is Binan Koukou Chikyuboeibu Love! or, in translation, Handsome High School Earth Defense Club Love!. Yes, this is a thing.
Showcased in their Battle Lovers Mahou Shoujo (shonen?) gear that looks a suspicious lot like every other magical girl costume ever, the official website for the original TV anime released the key visual. Which you can see here.
The one helming this peculiar project is no other than the 52 year old Shinji Takamatsu, director of the one and only Gintama and Daily Lives Of Highschool Boys. Clearly, this man knows how to do weird and man, is this weird.
The story centers on the five students in the Boeibu/Defense Club (aka “a club to do nothing”) at the Binan High School. Involving the battle between the two mysterious creatures came from the outer space, they have to fight against Seifukubu/Conquest Club (Student Council), as the successors to the throne “Battle Lovers.” In addition, if you told me these guys had a vagina, I´d believe you in a heartbeat. But, hey. Why not.
This announcement also included the plans of launching an otome social game for Android and iPhone.
The anime is scheduled to air in January 2015.
