I've met female anime fans who were fan of this show because they actually were into the kidnapping/rape/humiliation/abuse fantasies or in the contrary identified with the bad guys,
I don't criticize : "different strokes for different folks" as they say but is it not a turn off for the average female viewer ?

I know Heart no Kuni no Alice: Wonderful Wonder World (http://myanimelist.net/anime/4713/Heart_no_Kuni_no_Alice:_Wonderful_Wonder_World) is a reverse harem and is aimed at a female audience, but without the rape/kidnapping/ etc... is more for the "vanilla" female viewer.

Whattt that's just disturbing I'm not into this anime because of those reasons you mention I just a sucker for reverse harem anime plus Ayato treats Yuki with a bit more respect so I kinda like his character a lot ..

there's better reverse harem anime out there examples Hiiro no Kakera, Amnesia , kamigami no asobi and I believe brothers conflict .. Diabolik lovers isn't the only I believe

The first episode is now up.

Episode 1

Whoa, dat English at the beginning. Talk about ominous.

So it begins with Ritsuka being called out of the blue to the student council for a made-up violation. Then her house appears to be ransacked as after the police arrives the house is perfectly back in place, but her mother has gone missing. Those goons happen to be after the forbidden grimoire and her grandfather is connected to it. Then she is attacked, but Rem saves her. Talk about ominous the way this show beings. For a show with this kind of setup, which more often than not ends up being a total mess, this show is off to a solid start as it sets the stage for mysteries to be unraveled.

Episode 1

I'm so lost after watching that lol

So we got some weird guys with strange powers.
Then, there's something about a strange grimore or whatever and Ritsuka somehow gets involved (her mother indirectly as well). Eh, I hope we learn more about the main guys but I'm not having high hopes for the show at the moment.

The music was something else though.

So I hear that this anime is basically a musical.

As in, a Broadway musical.

I think I'll check it out later just for the novelty.

Yeah, the musical aspect caught be by surprise. But I like the parts that gave it a somewhat gothic feel. I'm intrigued. I'll give it 3 episodes.

Episode 1

Gotta love that engrish! XD

So, things went from 0 to 180 about halfway into the episode. At the beginning, it felt like a musical theater slice of life, then it shifted the tone to a horror and mystery setting, which is weird, but interesting. We get our main character, Ritsuka and apparently there are some things about her family that is interesting. Also, everyone seems to be after her or rather, after the grimoire, so I bet that will come into play later. Hmm, even though some parts threw me off, I enjoyed the episode. If this series really has a horror theme to it, then it's perfect for fall. Also, I would love to see Funi dub this and see how they do it. I am looking forward to the next episode!

I like demons almost as much as vampires.

I don't like reverse harem or rapey.

I may give this series I try, I just find myself skeptical.

Well, so far there is no rape. I'm giving it a shot. I did find the musical introduction of the harem boys be to hilarious.

well, after Ep. 1. Color me intrigued.

I just blindly decided to watch this one.

As someone who in intrigued by all things supernatural as well as decadence and musical theater, I liked it. I have got to admit to that. I am interested to see where this is going. I honestly can't see any weak spots in this other than simply being completely blind as to what the real premise or inspiration is derived from. I'm typically NOT at all into reverse harems, but I think this might break that mold.

Lawl, i know that musical anime aren't exactly new things but they sure are rare as hell. This one in particular i wasn't ready for until all the guys started singing for the 2nd time. Seems high quality if you're into that sort of thing which im not.

Well so far I'm really liking episode 1 gave it a 9 for the action it had at the end ^^ Just hope next episode we learn more about the characters .. looks like this, Diabolik lovers, A chivalry of the failed knight, Star-Mu and Noragami will be my top favorites of the season ^^

Enjoyed the first episode enough to keep watching. Though I mostly liked the musical parts.

Hoping the reverse harem isn't gonna be a cast of Christian Greys.

Got 'Mortal Instruments' vibes (which I liked) towards the latter half, so far its something I'm undecided about so will have to keep watching to see how it pans out in the end.
