Our School Love
The first (if I’m not mistaken — I’d love you to correct me, internet) English-original otome drama CD, Our School Love is a series of cute, high school dating-themed situation stories starring the three guys above.
Popular Lee is Mr. (Not So) Suave. Rebel Jayden is the tsun-est tsun that ever tsun’d. And geeky Scott is a ball of adorkableness. So, basically, there’s someone for everyone!
Honestly, it can be extra embarrassing to hear such romantic, otome-y lines in English, without the awkwardness buffer of simply reading it, or of hearing it in Japanese. But I think that’s to be expected of anything new like this, and the awkwardness is totally outweighed by how cute everything is. In the future, I’d love to see some longer stories, but — as an English-original drama CD — it’s a great start.
You can buy any of the three available characters separately for $15 each (run time: 20 minutes approx), or buy the full set for $40 (£25-ish, run time: 1 hour approx). The $40 set also comes with exclusive artwork and three “free talk” tracks — and it’s very interesting to hear from the voice actors!
If this kind of thing interests you, I urge you to support the creators and buy it here! I truly hope that this is a sign of things to come…
