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.


Well I cannot talk about Absolute Duo yet(I need to wait until tomorow to watch it) but as far as Unlimited Fafnir and World Break goes... they are slightly different. Fafnir is more like if Cross Ange, Infinit Stratos and Blade Dance had a child while World Break appears to at least attempt to not do the over used male MC in a all female school trope we keep seeing recently.

You should make sure you check out Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata, from the first episode it looks like it has some serious potential to be good.

The feel this gives me most of all is "Irregular at Magic Highschool", except he doesn't quite yet know how awesome he is.

I loved Irregular. I mean even though he was completely OP, they still made the anime work by not completely focusing it on him. Also, because of that we were able to appreciate just how much of a badass Tatsuya was, instead of it being obnoxious like with Kirito or a lot of other OP MCs.

World Break AKA Blade Dance season 2.


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.


You guys are right. Most of the show and premise definitely is more Dragon Academy.
The annoying main female had me stuck thinking of Claire Rouge from Blade Dance though.

I was really enjoying the fact that the MC wasn't op. He was actually pretty weak... but then he got the super power boost and it lost me :/. Idk I might keep watching but even if the MC had stayed week I'm sure the super generic fantasy setting would have eventually bored me anyway so most likely I'll end up dropping but I'll give it 2 more episodes at least.

I watched the first episode just because I had absolutely nothing else to watch. It's actually not bad, much to my surprise. I usually don't like harem anime but this one has some good humorous moments. I won't expect this to be as hilarious as Baka Test though. With just one ep, I can't say the characters break from the generic harem character molds completely, but I felt like they stand out from among this season's harem characters.
When the ending music began, I thought it was gonna be a song by Ali Project, but it's not. :/
Anyway, I hope there are more interesting characters to appear and the spotlight won't focus on that annoying pink haired girl.

I don't know if I want to like it or not... the story and setting are interesting, but the characters are generic as fuck.

Does a Triangle really count as harem? The relationships are pretty much set from the start.

It has that guilty pleasure charm. I dunno, 'heart' maybe?

It doesn't, but how do you know this is going to stay as a Triangle? I saw a lot more girls in the opening animation, who are all potential Harem members, just wait until the mysterious transfer student comes in Most Harems don't start off with your full cast right off the bat, if your main character already has his Harem at the start of the series, things are likely to go into a direction similar to Infinite Stratos 2

Oh, another magical harem.
Will watch because of the soundtrack and fanservice though

An enjoyable show. Though mostly popcorn fodder if you will.

I can't help but feel that they chose the wrong actor for the little-sister character though.. I rather get a deredere feeling of the actions and everything else. But the voice acting itself more aims in the direction of a Tsundere. Or maybe it's just me.

But so far it's not bad. Should be an overall enjoyable watch i guess.

Pass... Not even "guilty pleasure" worthy. Unlimited Fafnir already won that battle.

This actually looks interesting to me. It's going to take a few more episodes for me to reach a proper verdict, but it's interesting so far.

An opening that started with a terrible cgi dragon of some sort being attacked by terrible cgi figures that had no detail to them while mc scribbles writing into the air- apparently on fast forward- while some weird voice goes on; followed immediately by a terrible pink haired girl that screams every line in an incredibly lame attempt at "comedy".... and then the face shove into the squishy boobs.
For the love of god... I can't see why anyone would be so willing to be fooled by this. There is nothing redeeming about this crap whatsoever. I'm not saying this because of any dislike/like of it, but seriously after watching anime for 30 years it's not that hard to spot some purpose, talent, and effort in a show if they exist. And in this there's nothing to be found; it's garbage. Quit wasting your time.
