2 min read

Shomin Sample Ore ga Ojo Hulu HeaderFUNimation picked up the lengthily series named Story in Which I Was Kidnapped by a Young Lady’s School to be a Sample of the Common People as part of the fall anime season and they’ve begun adding it to Hulu for additional streaming. The series is a paid subscriber series first with a one week delay for new episodes, though it got a bit of a later start so the first episode is already free for viewing. Those that do subscribe to Hulu also get to watch this show on their TV and mobile devices.

The cast as announced now includes Atsushi Tamaru as Kimito Kagurazaka, Yu Serizawa as Aika Tenkubashi, Rika Tachibana as Reiko Arisugawa, Yuki Kuwahara as Hakua Shinodome, Chitose Morinaga as Karen Jinryo, Saori Onishi as Miyuki Kujou and Yumi Hara as Eri Hara.

The name of the series in Japan is Ore ga Ojousama Gakkou ni “Shomin Sample” Toshite Gets♥Sareta Ken, though it’s getting the shortform name of Shomin Sample. While the announcement came from the manga, that manga is based on the light novel series by Takafumi Nanatsuki which began back in 2011 and included character deigns and illustrations by Gekka Uru. The ninth volume of that series was released earlier this year..

The series will be directed by Masato Jinbo based on scripts by Kento Shimoyama and animated at Silver Link.

Plot concept: In a hidden school surrounded by mountains, young ladies of good families are taught everything a high class lady needs to know. They are also completely cut off from the outside world, keeping them sheltered and innocent. However, a problem has come up recently– more and more graduates are failing to cope with the modern world after graduation. To deal with this problem, they’ve decided to kidnap a male commoner student, and enroll him as a student. They hope that this will be a gentle way to introduce the girls to the outside world.

Kagurazaka Kimito is chosen for this dubious honor, mostly because he seems utterly average. However, the school leaders also seem to have concluded he’s a homosexual with a muscle fetish. When Kimito hears that the alternative may be castration (to protect the girls’ purity), he eagerly plays along with this misconception. Now he’ll just have to survive the attention of many high class young ladies that are completely out of touch with the world!
