What would you do if one day you’ll wake up becoming the most popular guy in school? For some this might be a dream comes true but for our MC from Cupid’s Chocolates, he felt like he’d been cursed. Yes, various girls confessing to him and he doesn’t even know them, he just became the harem king in school, how is this even possible?
Alright, such is the premise of Cupid’s Chocolates, or Aishen Qiaokeli-ing…, a Chinese anime that first premiered in 2015 from G.CMAY Animation & Film.

Cupid’s Chocolates spanned 2 seasons and had been an amazing ride featuring a hilarious rom-com cliche in a school setting.
