No Boys Dorm is the "shoujo-inspired spiritual sequel" web series from the creators of (My) Immortal: The Web Series.

Lara No, a former criminal who left Toronto to escape her past, is forced to return after her apartment burns down, and to stay with her brother Leon in the boys' dorm at the mysterious Academy. When the RA demands to know why she's there, the handsome Elite student Takashi Tesumi covers for her, pretending to be her boyfriend.

But Lara finds an enemy in Teela Tether, the richest and most powerful student at the Academy, who wants Takashi for herself— and vows to expose Lara as a fake. She enlists the help of the Shadow Order, a mysterious group who serve the Elite by any means necessary.

Lara and her friends— fierce and talented Alba, bubbly and adorable Moe, stylish and overdramatic Jason, computer genius Isaac, and quiet and bookish Leon— must stay one step ahead of their enemies, help the people around them, and navigate the strange world of the Academy.

No Boys Dorm contains examples of:

  • Alliterative Name: Alba Armada, Jason Jettison, Lily Loss, Maron Marcus, Takashi Tesumi, and Teela Tether; in the actors' names, Andrew Aquino (Takashi), Kari Kineear (Janet), and Nick Newcastle (Dresden).
  • Ax-Crazy: Teela tries to murder Lara with a rake.
  • Cameo: Eli Terlson, who played Draco Malfoy in (My) Immortal, makes an appearance as one of Alba's terrible dates.
  • Creator Cameo: Moe is played by Candace Meeks, who is also the producer. Brian McLellan, the creator of the show (and Loopin in (My) Immortal), makes an appearance as a security guard at the Soiree.
  • Cast Full of Gay: Alba is bisexual. Lara and Takashi clearly have something more than their fake relationship, but Lara and Teela have massive amounts of Unresolved Sexual Tension. Jason is gay and completely into Maron, so much so that an entire episode is centered on Jason trying to ask Maron out.

  • King Incognito: Moe is actually a princess. She just never saw a reason to mention it.
  • Removing the Rival: Teela wants Takashi for herself; therefore, she spends all her time attempting to get Lara kicked out of the Academy and eventually tries to kill her with a rake.
  • Sanity Slippage: Teela's rage at Lara becomes so extreme that she attempts to murder her.
  • The Smart Guy: Isaac, who can somehow create a fake student ID for Lara in about thirty seconds.
  • Terrible Interviewees Montage: Alba has one of these at one point when she tries dating. Needless to say, she ends up with none of them.
  • Two-Teacher School: Actual teachers are never shown. A Professor is mentioned (but only mentioned) in episode five.
