The story jumps around but centers around doll like people who are servents. I'm gonna be literal and say that they are used for "inappropriate" acts. This is a yaoi (gay/boy x boy) series. It's not very long as far as I've seen

Really excellent anime about best friends swimming together
15 September 2018 | by IrishchatterSee all my reviews

I do admit, the animation was fantastic. Yes I did admire the lads looks and all but its not always about that. The fact the English dub cast did such an amazing job at voicing the characters and the fact, the characters are pure likeable! As well as that, everyone gets on well even if they have their own quarrels or act dumb (which has its hilarious moments). I ship Haruka & Rin btw lol.

Great anime ❤❤❤
