First and for most, this wins the award for longest name for this seasons anime. The English translation of this is I was Abducted by an Elite All-Girls School as a Sample Commoner. (I will full admit I just spent about 10 minutes on google translate trying to get this to translate properly.By the way there is an even longer version of this title…Story in Which I Was Kidnapped by a Young Lady’s School to be a “Sample of the Common People”, Ore ga Ojou-sama Gakkou ni “Shomin Sample” Toshite Rachirareta Ken.) From here on out this blog will be calling this anime, Syomin Sample.

This is a light novel series by Takafumi Nanatsuki, and it has the same title. Just so you know, the title takes up about a fourth of the cover of the book. There is also a manga version of the series that came out about a year after the light novel came out. You can read the synopsis and watch the trailer after the break.

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!(courtesy of MangaHelpers)
