Claudia was the only good thing about this episode. She should be the main female lead instead of Princess Generic Tsundere von Redhead of the kingdom of Annoyance.

You'd think they would at least change up the Tsundere being the main love interest now and then. So many authors just rehash the same high school battle harem series without even trying to be just a little different.

Imagine if like the main interest was a yandere for a change, it'd be so much fun haha

Why can't we do something like Harem but the character is gay like in
I'm the Main Character of a Harem Manga, but I'm Gay so Every Day is Hell for Me

or like the World God Only Knows where the girls actually have personalities, non-clique traits, are developed and matter to the plot not fan service

I just want something different I am so fed up of having 2-4 of these cookie cutter harem series every season.

Ha! Well a gem comes every now and then and luckily there isn't like 10 one of them each season, it's usually like 2-5 like you said. I do have a soft spot for these type of shows, but of course I'd like some more "ambitious" harem shows.

Even if it was just a little change, that can go a long ways. The shows you mention probably require more wit and creatively from the author, and in that case more hard work, whereas something like this is just easy work and easy dollars....

Still even as a harem series writer, I'd want to challenge myself and make something more creative and different, than just making another boring series that has been done a hundred times before. What's the fun of that?

Even a simple change like making a battle harem with adult characters that are not in high school, would at least change things up just a bit!

Anyways I hear Chivalry of a Failed Knight is supposed to be good so at least we got one that's trying to be a little different this season.

I would love to see more shows take place in university like Golden Time. Even a small difference like that is really refreshing so I understand where you are coming from with a small change can make a huge difference to a show.

The two leads of Failed Knight are a bit sillier and funnier than the two leads of Asterisk, by which i mean they react to the same situations in more entertaining ways. If Failed Knight doesnt become a harem, then I think it could be great, the two leads have good chemistry, if it does it can still be entertaining but wont be as good.

Honestly I think the concept of harem ruins a lot of these show. Primarily because the writers don't seem to be able to make all the girls relevant and the relationships become pretty weak and thin. It works best if they focus on no more than 3 preferably 2 girls.

From LN readers I hear it stays a pretty focused on the core relationship, so rejoice!

And I agree, that can ruin a lot of shows because they can never hammer down a solid romantic relationship. It stays in this state of limbo for a while and can hurt the characters and like you said, so many of them don't become relevant. And ya, I think focusing on 3 or 2 would be good for some of these shows since it narrows down the focus at least..... Or just focus one relationship.

Honestly, if more harems had more of a comedic element where it knew the concept was ridiculous and played with it, then it'd be more enjoyable. Like Nisekoi, Trinity Seven, Monster Musume, and possibly first two seasons of DxD. I'd be down for of that.

A lot of these harem shows try to put on a mask that they're more than what they actually are, but it just falls flat on its face because how could you take something like this seriously? You'd have to be damn good writer to make a serious battle harem show.

I'm glad I decided to wait before jumping into this. I'm not wasting my time on another shitty harem battle anime.

That's why I can't wait for Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta? I hear the main girl is a yandere.

From what I've heard,



Although I'm not sure if that entirely rules out the possibility of a harem...

Episode 1: Witch of The Resplendent Flames

I feel like I have seen this somewhere before? Hmm....Yes this is really generic, but. I liked it. Maybe it's because my preferred genres are ecchi and harem. Battle high school is a nice setting as well.

One thing I did like about this show was the animation. It had some pretty nice visuals and if it can keep it up then that will definitely be a big plus. That OP? ED? Gives me hope that great fights will come.

Lots of set up and world building this episode, but hopefully now that it's out the way we can focus on relationship development and what not. And hopefully it can do something that can set it apart from the rest.

Looking forward to more. But I can understand why people are feeling the way they are feeling about this show.
