Based on this thread alone, I'm assuming this is AOTY. Maybe.

But serious question: Is the first episode any good? I've never heard of this series before now and it looks like a reverse harem.

Episode 1

Kohana has already made news at the fine arts school for being the daughter of the famous artista, and while she works hard, she's still bad at all of the artista stuff, as well as not knowing how things work around the place. She's got quite a long road ahead seeing that she's already in Teika's doghouse, and she was chosen to organize the upcoming festival. Well, it could have been worse, but it's barely holding my interest. So for now, I'll keep watching it for now, but I'm likely not going to stay with it.

It's what this show deserves, after all.

But seriously, though I did watch the first episode and found it was "not for me" I would like to encourage folks who do like the show to speak up and join the discussion, instead of letting us snark without balance.

And honestly I probably will watch the next couple of episodes. Even though I find the "hot guys" icky (as I usually do in reverse harem shows) I am kind of curious to see if they play out the "you are my enemy now" part of the plot in any interesting way.

This was actually a pretty decent show compared all the terrible otome/reverse-harem ones we've gotten previously.

Episode 2

It's no wonder why Teika despises Kohana as she's from a family that's at odds with his family. There's an upcoming event, and the committee members haven't been showing up, so it is Kohana's job to reach out to them. First up is the calligrapher Aoi as he has been in a slump. Thus, Kohana comes to give him inspiration for his next masterpiece, and while his calligraphy has more sparkle, it still isn't what he wants. After bringing in flowers, that was what he needed to break through. Well, not quite, but it is much closer to what he wants. So the next four episodes are going to be like this where Kohana is helping out a member of the committee that didn't show up. That was decent given the poor track record otome adaptations have, but still I'm not really into this show. I'll give it one more episode if anything.

I'd much rather watch UtaPri... At least the music is good in that show.

Well that definitely isn't a normal tree.

Kohana seems a lot like her mother as well.

Episode 3

Aoi is now on board as the secretary and Kohana has been chosen as the vice chair. Kohana is doing flower arranging trying to recreate Sakura's magic, but she fails hard. So into her mother's old room she goes and Aoi comes in to provide support to let her know that she needs to find her own arrangement, not mimic her mother's as different people see things differently. That was quite a discovery made by Kohana.

Episode 4

And now, an episode about Louis, who is a talented dancer, but stopped dancing when the pressure got to him and he forgot how fun it was to dance. So instead, he plays basketball with Kanato, and after talking with Kohana and seeing her smile, he dancing once again. While the development and backstory was decent in concept, it didn't really grab me as much as it should have, especially compared to the last episode. So with that, I think I had my fill of magic already with this show.

Episode 5

Looks like it's Hibiki's time to shine this episode.

I had a feeling already that the show will probably explore each main guy's relationship building with Kohana. Well they are getting along quite well. That montage at the song was kinda fast though compared to some of the others.

And lol, Kohana is afraid of the dark...

Just watched all five available episodes today with my terrible-reverse-harem-themed anime group and... it's actually pretty okay? The characters are charming, the concept is odd but interesting and the lead is not annoying. Also, the designs are nice and the animation quality is closer to the Yuri on Ice end of the scale than the Gakuen Handsome end.

Too bad it will probably sell nowhere near as much as UtaPri Legend Star.
