If you think you can't vote without knowing the story for sure, here I give you some quick glimpse of it:THE STORY:
At the day of graduation, Rie sincerely expressed her feelings towards Asou Senpai, her senior in Art Club of Hoshigaki Gakuen. Rie drew her Senpai in manga style then gave it to him. Unexpectedly, her known kind Senpai coldly rejected the present, saying that he hated anything related to otaku culture. The worst was, her Senpai rejected her in front of public! And those who had kept their envy towards Rie and her closeness to Asou, shouted their loathes to her, total out loud.
This totally broke Rie's fragile heart. She went down to depression and stopped going to school for almost 1 year. Her parents then make Rie enrolled into John Robert Power Personality School, and it really helped her improving herself! One year later that timid and introverted girl had already changed into a high-pride and spirit girl.
She then moved school into Shinayama Gakuen in another prefecture where she hoped to begin her brand new glorious school days. However, she was then trapped in the middle of conflict between Otaku House Club and Student Council Organization. The student council wanted to shut down the club that didn't show any progress and productivity, and one of them is Otaku Club!
Rie was forced (conditionally) to help the Otaku Club to gain approval from school. Meanwhile, Rie was trying hard to hide her "dark past" of being an otaku and hikikomori. Days by days, she then found that all members of Otaku Club had complex life backgrounds and became more sympathetic of them. As she felt that she once in the same ship with them. How did Rie could help Otaku Club prove themselves against the world?
Rie had to make herself getting along with those eccentrics members of the club to get their acts together. Here were those challenging boys of Otaku Club:
<da:thumb id="494668235"> Asahina Yue,
the devoted butler to a boy named Liu Shan. Yue showed his disapproval towards Rie since the very beginning of their encounter. He dedicated his life to "his Master", Liu Shan, and would do anything to guarantee his master's happiness. Asahina was good in setting stage special effect solely for his master's act.
<da:thumb id="494665367">Liu Shan Ji An,
the ultimate beautiful cross-dresser boy. Liu was apparently the descendant of a royal family who once become the secret supporter of Shirou Amakusa's Rebellion (still checking the history book anyway). He was a half-breed. His mother is from Austria, while his father is from China. He really liked to cross-dress as some anime girls characters and would switched his real personality according to the costume he wore.
There was a complex reason that made him liked to cross-dress that much. Often being mistaken as a girl, he seemed didn't mind at all and even developed his flirtatious personality. His pheromones seemed so effective for both genders XD Liu Shan was a doujinshi-ka, who liked to draw 17+ stories. He was the most passionate member of the club and could be so much emotional about it.
<da:thumb id="494664700">Nobuyoshi Fei,
The Yankee Bucchou. He was the leader of Otaku Club House who seemed didn't pay too much attention towards the crisis in the club. He was a genius and a top student in Shinamaya. Thus the teachers let him fooling around, missing the class and spending most of his time watching animes in the club. However, Fei apparently had a very complex problem in his family. Causing him to avoid going home, and then staying in the club. He was a descendant of a Chinese military member who then being exiled to Japan due to certain mistakes (still checking the history book though). Out of everybody's expectation, he was diligently working in several baitos (freelance-job), seriously saving his money so he could go to university and rented an apartment just for himself after graduation.
His specialty was making simple animation video and AMV (Animation Movie Video). He was a fan of Dissidia games and would always seen lazying around, playing them in his PSP.Shirou Rufi.
I haven't posted his picture here. Rufi was an albino, so he had snow-colored hair. Rufi was a talented writer who once got his novel published when he was only in junior high school. The novel won many awards. Those who envied him saying that it was only his one hit wonder luck, and accused him for plagiarism. In fact, Rufi couldn't finish and publish other novels after that, due to piling up stresses.
Rufi suffered a rare disease named "Narcolepsy", the reason why he often went collapse whenever he was in the peak of his emotion. Be it positive or negative emotion.
Yup mostly the characters here are ALL-BOYS! I deliberately design the plot like those visual novel and Otome Game theehee. One thing you should know that each characters was unique and barely normal! HARHARHARHAHHAR

Maid Girl: Ilya Kushinov or known in DA as KRONPR1NZ. I learnt her style to draw the characters here. I wish I could commiss her for the cover for real... But... Oh well. The cover above is unofficial, so I didn't use it for commercial purpose though. Merely just used to attract the visitors and editors.
Once I get my novel published, who knows? Maybe I could commiss her to draw the cover for sure?
