Go To
Lara No (Tavia Pereira).

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

Lara No, a former criminal who left Toronto to escape her past, is forced to return, following the burning down of her apartment, and 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.


The show debuted late 2015 and can be found here. The official website is here.

No Boys Dorm contains examples of:

  • Affably Evil: Cyrus, who is never that evil to begin with. He carries out less-than-lawful tasks for Teela, sure, but he seems more interested in shuffling his cards.
  • Alliterative Name: Alba Armada, Jason Jettison, Lily Loss (who has not been named in the show as of now), Maron Marcus, Takashi Tesumi, and Teela Tether; in the actors' names, Andrew Aquino (Takashi), Kari Kineear (Janet), and Nick Newcastle (Dresden).
  • Alpha Bitch: Teela Tether.
  • Ax-Crazy: Teela tries to murder Lara with a rake.
  • Boyfriend Bluff: What Takashi does for Lara.
  • 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 Mc Lellan, 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 UST. Jason is gay and completely into Maron, so much so that an entire episode is centered on Jason trying to ask Maron out.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Alba tends to be this.
  • Foe Yay: After Lara fell on Teela, it began. After Lara saved Teela from falling, it grew. note 
  • King Incognito: Moe is actually a princess. She just never saw a reason to mention it.
  • Moe: She fits this trope so well, it's her name.
  • No Indoor Voice: Martin, the RA, seems unable to not yell.
  • Reformed Criminal: Lara No and Alba Armada.
    • Cyrus too, to some extent.
  • 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.
  • Shirtless Scene: One in episode four, when Jason tries to talk to Maron.
  • 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.
