Despite being female this is not what I want to watch lol



Most people have mix feelings about reverse harems. Some of the female main characters in reverse harems are either stupid and weak or annoying and weak. You'll rarely have a reverse harem with strong, smart, and independent female main character.

Just my take on it.


Wellllll, couldn't we say the same thing for most regular harems as well...Out of most out there, about 1 percent of the MC's actually get any thing done, If they arnt weak, annoying, and most of the time have the viewers wondering how the hell does anyone like him.

Good any harem is hard.

Ouran Host Club did it good though.

First time watching a reverse harem, even if Saori Hayami is in the main role, I think I'll drop this show.

My wife and I keep on hoping for a new Ouran Host Club. A good female lead and likable guys with some good comedy. Unfortunately, it seems that this is to much to ask for.

No. Most of them are horribly written and smart as rocks. See Yui in Diabolik Lovers, the MC in Amnesia, Haruka in UtaPri for examples. Chi in Brother's Conflict was another one, but she wasn't as bad as the ones mentioned.

I like Yui so far...hopefully they don't give her the stoopids.

I really wish there was an otome/female harem show that had a character that was SMART. Like Haruhi in Ouran or Shurei in Saiunkuoku.

Love the fact that Loki was all up on Baldur's d**k the minute Yui shows up.

I admit, I was first thrown off by Apollon until I started laughing my arse off at the ridiculousness of it. My roommate even was watching it

I think I like Team Greek so far; I always had a soft spot for Hades, mainly for the Persephone story. Though I think Loki will amuse me greatly too.

Yeah you have to take these things with some humor. I found it awesome for a first ep.

The flowers of course, are meant to symbolize the characters. Wild Roses = trouble and so on. Goes without saying, but just like the color coded hair, you're supposed to key into the personality before they even open their mouths.

As for the "every woman", of course she isn't strong. Otherwise, she'd just decisively grab one of these bad gods and get on with it, and show is over. She's supposed to stumble around so the story doesn't stop.

I couldn't watch Amnesia because of that. I stopped, she was just too... ugh. So I guess I'm guilty of letting that get to me too. But I sort of understand why the writers do it.

Plus, the average person doesn't want to feel outclassed, they want to yell at the screen "Grab him!" and imagine it could be them. So the characters are always naive, average Japanese people of a certain age who are very indecisive. Nice, but easy to imagine yourself shouldering aside FTW. Or at least you should say, "Hey, I coudl do that. That would be me." You should not hate them, but you shouldn't think they are so great either, if the writers did their work.

Lately the girls in these shows have become too much, but here I think the balance is good after 1 episode.

Episode 1

Girl transported to the world of gods. Girl meets bishonen gods. Girl tasked with teaching them love. Alright, I'm not expecting much out of this show, but at least the first episode is decent considering that this is otoge and usually they are trash. At least the characters are not annoying like in other shows of this type, so that's a plus. But how things will go from there, that's what will make or break this show. I'll watch another episode of this.

*Raises hand.*

I watched it. It was horrible--or intentionally campy with all the cliches. I'm not sure which. The FLOWERS! The sparkles!

But OMG that opening transformation--so hilarious and worth watching at least one episode for. If they start every episode with a different magical transformation, I might have to watch a few minutes every week just for that.

Diabolik Lovers was 10x worse from the start.....

WOW. I expected some hate for this show but not this intense. Was it the magical boy transformation? I admit, another thing I was thinking when watching this was, 'Oh, is this a parody of magical girl cliches?'

But if this was about a guy in a school of goddesses, admit it; some of you all would say it's good.

You aren't the only one. So over the basic bitches that haunt these things.

The only reason I picked this up was I'm a fangirl of mythology, especially Greek and Japanese. And...I like Ono, Kamiya and Hosoya.
