Holy crap, this pink-haired girl is annoying as hell. Let me guess, she's best girl right?

seems interesting, guessing this Moroha guy has multiple past lives that he'll remember and the multiple women he's been with all coincidentally will appear in this generation, thus we have ourselves a harem!

Alright so this show was a bit more annoying than your typical Harem.

The one thing I hate about harems and a lot of shonens is that they rarely encourage cleverness or intelligence. It's always just, 'being smart? you don't need that, here have this super power that makes you the most special person in the world!

Which is why as stupid as Naruto can be at times, I respect it. Because it at least tries to make Naruto have to use his brain. Other characters definitely have to.

Also Hunter x Hunter. Gon isn't any more special than any other character.

But Bleach, god that is just leap frog with special abilities.

So far though... I think I like Absolute Duo the best out of this season's harems.

Wait, a kiss already?


The animation quality was bad and Satsuki's voice was annoying. OST is decent though but I feel like the fight took far too long. Also, their outfits look like school swimsuits...

Ok, finished the episode. I actually really liked it! Satsuki may be annoying, but i don't think she's a lost cause because she did have good moments to make up for my initial impression of her. Anyway, i thought it was a decent introduction episode and fight.

So, i'm feeling Absolute Duo and World Break. Dislike Sister Devil and Fafnir.

Hmm from all first episodes of new show's this season
this one is my favourite untill now. Started with big action sequence - I liked action, animation and spells written with finger in the air while bunch of other characters were backing up MC.

I like the theme with past lives, but I wonder how much will they utilise it and how much it will fade into backgroud. It could be intetersting if they will pursue this subject somehow rather than just leaving it as element of premise. Satsuki childish, honest and hot-headed attitude was fun to watch. And the calm long-haired girl (forgot her name) is nice counterbalance for her. MC feels kinda similar to other MC in shounen series ( I will miss you Arata Kasuga). Action was quick (maybe pacing was a little to fast), Satsuki is hilarious and premise is promising

I recently read a harem manga that was kind of novel, in a way. It was called 'Hundred.' Why I say that it was novel is because, it was essentially a fan fiction of Infinite Stratos. Like the characters and names and everything were different, but it was completely like if you took Infinite Stratos, removed all the girls except for Charlotte. Then just made a whole manga about flirting with Charlotte in a school full of girls. It's funny because the manga sets up a harem situation, but completely ignores it and just establishes that the main heroine has already won right from the beginning.

The first anti-harem manga? I don't know what I would call it lol.

I feel like there are too many of these shows in this season.

Yes there are, that's why the plan is pick two, roll with those until they drop off, hence drop, then pick the other 2 or 3 out there, and odds are one should "hit". Atm Fafnir is the last one I won't touch until I can drop the ones currently in my Roster, which is more than likely Absolute Duo, the /gagfest. With Isuca to take the place of any other upcoming drops...then Dog Days''

The only Harem that actually stands out for me this season is Testament of Sister New Devil.


Absolute Duo, Unlimited Fafnir, and World Break all seem like the same show, to me.


What about Saekano? Meh, generic Devil Harem may be a stand out for this Harem season, but it is way too similar to other shows I have seen in the last few years to say that it is a stand out in any way, at least in my oppinion.

That was ... okay. Don't have any other new titles for Sunday so I guess I'll be keeping up with this.

No, that would be Fafnir. This is pretty different. This would be a bit closer to Dragonar Academy.

Exactly. This is definitely not like Blade Dance; Fafnir has the one guy in an all-girl school.

Well that was as average as average can be. They were damn quick in making up that harem, I guess they couldn't be assed having the usual MC monologue introducing the setting. I would have preferred that to what they actually did; they basically just told the audience to insert generic magic high school and run with it. The characters don't seem too bad, at least I wasn't rooting against our MC when he tried to defend his obsessive tsundere's honour. Satsuki's voice didn't particularly bother me since I've heard that style in harem's so much I'm accustomed to it at this point. In the end, I'm just happy it made more sense than Aldnoah.Zero's hilariously bad plot.
