"I'm starting to wonder how this story ever got popular enough to become animated."

Hideyoshi was actually voted the most popular light-novel character of 2009 in Japan:

The novels themselves are considered equally as popular.  Perhaps something is lost in adaptation.

I'm aware of Hideyoshi's popularity in Japan, but personally, I do not see why he is so popular. A boy of slight build, with feminine manners, who is often made (against his stated will) to cosplay in sexy female outfits that cater to various fetishes. For some, certainly there is an appeal. Not for me, but that's just a personal opinion.

As for the story in general, I'm still waiting to see something that, in my personal opinion, justifies the attention and popularity that this franchise gets. It's not bad, but I have yet to come across something that makes this show, and I would guess the light novels, "special." School comedies centered around idiots in love triangles is something that I've seen before more than once.
