  • Lots of eye candy, and a few really romantic bits I admit to watching more than once!
    Let's face it: this anime is really mostly about pretty. And it is. Very. Pretty. Bishies abound, and the heroine is bland enough that you can put yourself into her shoes and fall for all those bishies.

    The story is decent, and culminates in
    For me, it's the last 3-4 episodes of Season 2 that pack the most romantic punch: we angst ...

  • High HOPES CRUSHED..
    Let me just cut to the chase, I had high hopes for this anime but simply put its was way too much when it came to filler filler and more filler.Let me give you a great hint. Watch ESP 13 of Season 1 then jump to EPS 10 of Season 2 and you'll love it.

  • So beautiful, it will make you fall in love with it.
    I absolutely loved this anime. When I watched the English dubbed version I was like the whole gang is back together again. The reason why I say this is because the anime Fleeting Blossom, was created before this anime. A lot of the voice actors that was used in Fleeting Blossom was also used in Hiiro no Kakera. The anime was also similar to Fleeting Blossom. I cried. I laughed. And I got ...

  • Enjoyable but not amazing
    I'm just star rating to remember what I've watched. You won't find any real reviews here. Move along. I don't know why they insist on having to write an actual review, and why it has to be at least 250 characters. Oh, I really liked Takuma, even if he is a typical tsundere character. I do tend to like them, and that's probably why so many anime has at least one male character like that.

  • Typical wanna-be cool reverse harem show
    Okay, I was trying to see this with an open mind, but the more I watched, the more frustrated I got. However, I managed to stick it out and watched both seasons, in the HOPES that Tamaki would finally emerge as the Tamayori princess. Little did I know, that wouldn't happen until the END of the series--in season 2! Ugh! The first round of episodes of the guys saying something at the end was okay, ...

    Very, very blah in the world of fantasy/action reverse harems
    I started out excited, because after watching the first 3 episodes, this show felt like it had a lot of potential. Then the same old crap just recycled throughout the rest of the episodes, and the lack of a personality in the main girl really got annoying. The plot itself has more holes than a fishnet stocking, although maybe season 2 will wrap that crap up. Probably not.

    *Spoiler*

    This ...

  • Pretty, But The Writers Got Lazy
    The characters in this show are pretty to look at, as one might expect in a Reverse Harem setting.
    I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of fight animation and choreography, but that's pretty much where my enjoyment ended.

    The main character is mostly useless and wishy washy about her convictions.
    The love story comes out of nowhere. At the beginning of the show, it seems like it's ...

    Lovely art fails to compensate for bad writing
    To put it simply as a list:

    The Good:
    *Gorgeous hand drawn artwork/animation.

    The Bad:
    *Mediocre computer generated imagery (CGI).
    *Frustratingly slow pacing of the storyline.
    *Poor character development.
    *Plot holes big enough for Galactus, devourer of worlds, to leap through.
    * Predictably forumulaic and cliched unoriginal ...

    This is the slowest moving show ever.
    I am reviewing this at episode 18.

    Are you a dude?

    Did you Like the English Patient?

    If you answered yes to both of these, keep watching.

    No/Yes? Keep Watching.

    Yes/No : Do not watch this show.

    No/No: Probably not but maybe.

    This show is like the English Patient. Which by the way I did not like. Because Im a dude. Because its too long and takes way to long to get to the ...

    Overall a SOLID viewing.
    The series is like OTOME genre visual novels that I love. Character art and story are decent consider how old this show is now. Great show overall for its intended tailored demographic. Just like shonen are for boys and shoujo are for girls this not intended for everyone.
