Though I am wondering why Mayumi was dressed in the boys' uniform during her monologue at the start. If anything, that interests me more than the star business.
I'm guessing it might be to satisfy the second rule of being part of the Pretty Boys Detective Club. She seems like the shoujo audience self-insert, so I imagine they might want to keep her around.

Yeah, I'm thinking it'll end up as an Ouran situation but with better characters.

I'm surprised this even came up as an explicit question. Had that exact impression just from the first few minutes, felt pretty straightforward.

Though the question is what her qualification for "pretty" will be. Beautiful dreamer? Or maybe a blossoming maiden's aesthetic.

Yep. She's literally starry-eyed.

finally got around to watching it, this was pretty boring other than the girl being unable to eat good food at the end being an okay gag

also those character intros have to be the absolute worst done exposition this whole season so far, several minutes of "Wow it's (blank), he's (blank)!" which don't matter at all and just hurt the show if anything since they'd be more interesting if they were left mysterious

I doubt I'll keep watching unless I hear ep 2 is particularly amazing

Those are called epithets. There's no real sense to keeping their characteristics secret since I can almost guarantee that different episodes will use different detectives and play games with the expectations created by those epithets.

It's already doing it with the title itself.
