    An Underrated Masterpiece
    When I was a small girl, slowly inching my way into the foray of watching anime avidly, a lot of things were popular. There was this new series, Mahou Sensei Negima!?, which had just come out with its first volume, and everyone was excited about it. Curious about the author's other works, I innocently thought to myself "let me check out this anime called Love Hina," and well...Love Hina put me ...

    A truly beautiful drama (with ecchi elements)
    Translated "Bluer than Indigo" (or True Blue Love if you want old school). I remember the theme sung ("Towa no Hana" or Eternal Flower) by Yoko Ishida at Anime Expo roughly 10 years ago.

    Kaoru Hanabishi is a law student that wishes to become an independent man. He accidentally meets a beautiful girl wearing a traditional kimono at a train station. She was lost and he offers to help her. ...

    One of my all-time favorites
    I am apparently writing this review just before the series becomes available to watch on Crunchyroll. This is one of the most heartwarming, adorable, sweet anime I have ever seen. This anime is labeled as a Harem anime, but despite the main protagonist, Kaoru Hanabishi, having multiple women interested in him, it's clear from the very beginning who he loves. Also, the girls interested in Kaoru ...

    Excellent story, excellent artwork!
    Ai Yori Aoshi is actually one of my favorite animes. I have always loved this art style and have been a big fan of it since N.G.E. BUT! The best part of Ai Yori Aoshi, is the story. It actually fulfills plot points and ties them together like all great stories. Yes, this is a love story and there is no need to be hesitant about it. It's actually a story and less of a love drama. There are several ...

    An enjoyable romance story
    This is a low key romance anime that is relaxing to watch.. No big ups and downs. While the arranged marriage angle really doesn’t resonate, the commitment does. Unlike a lot of anime, the Harem aspect, while present, is not a major driver, the main relationship is apparent, eliminating the “I want to win him” to more of “ Just in case, it doesn’t work out, keep me in mind” vibe. It also avoids ...

  • If you're a fan of romance, give it a shot
    I'm admittedly biased towards this show, as it has a strong nostalgia factor for me. For someone coming into the show fresh, honesty compels me to admit that you may want to subtract a star, as this show is by no means perfect. Even so, 4/5 stars is still well worth watching.

    Kaoru and Aoi are a couple of the most likable protagonists you'll meet in a "harem" love comedy like this. I put ...

  • An old hidden gem - I love this one.
    This series is a true gem. The story is beautifully simple, and the storytelling style is quietly powerful and achingly beautiful. Each episode is fun and important, but if you are short on time, be sure to watch episodes 1-4 and 21-24, in that order. The two main characters are 19 and 21 (probably). They are perfectly suited to one another but separated by their wealthy families’ cruel best ...

  • A chimera between a "love conquers all" romance and a harem comedy
    Season 1
    ------------
    Imagine being a college student living alone in a humble apartment when, out of the blue, a beautiful lady walks into your life offering love, loyalty, dedication, devotion, and service of a caliber men can only dream of. We watch the young couple explain their situations and motivations to each other and grow closer, then the writers slam on the brakes and take the show ...

    1 season strong second fall short
    just like the title says the series is very strong in the first season. i have never read the manga so i don't know where it changes if any but the tone of the series changed from a love story to a basic harem story when it was about the endearing love between the main characters. the decision made by the main characters are stupid and you get a sens that they did not know where they were going ...
