I just got on my hands NIS's official release. I can live with a normal release, but they only give a deluxe release. I would just take the night reading the hardcovered booklet, which took most of the space of the box.
The book is actually written as a "guide" to high school boys and girls, with the caption of every pictures (sans profile pictures of characters) being a witty tip. And the manner of character intros are something like:
: Tadakuni is the all-nationality high school boy. He has a little sister, and can usually be found running to school with a piece of toast in his mouth of the first episode of a comedia, school-based anime series. Stereotypes are real, people! That's what makes them funny.
: Hidenori, ever the scholar and philosopher, can usually be counted on to lead afterschool simulations. Need advice? He's got it in spades, but he doesn't know anything that you don't. He is occationally stalked by a girl he doesn't know.
Short synopsis (in form of advices, of course), were given for each skit
, more than one hundred of them. Some of the skit titles looks quite different from the fansub. For example, the last skit of episode 1 aka High School Boys and the Literary Girl
High School Boys and Book-Loving Girls
: Riverbanks can be a dangerous place to meet new people. They can be deceptively romantic, attracting people with all manners of issues. Remember to always play it cool and keep other people's stuff just out of their reach.''
Some other skits names that, IIRC, were significantly changed:
- High School Boys and Walking with Girls aka High School Boys and the Accompanying Girl
- High School Boys and Secret Moves aka High School Boys and Sure-kill Shots
- High School Boys and being True to Yourself aka High School Boys and the Way You Are
- High School Boys and Annoyances aka High School Boys and Irritability
- High School Boys and Enthusiasm aka High School Boys and Assertiveness
