    People, please. let me guide you, and tell you why you should watch this.
    First off. Any anime that has Yoshitsugu Matsuoka is a must watch, you cannot deny this man's amazing voice acting talent. Now, let's get into the anime. Right off the bat, naked women, and not just that, but flawlessly animated naked women. She said it herself right at the start, the artwork is consistent from start to finish, the motion is fluid, and all the girls were cute... hello!! What do ...

    Our main heroine is Megumi—right?!
    Apparently, our "main heroine" is Megumi... but the story also revolves plenty around Eriri and Utaha! Sure this is a comedy, but wouldn't it be a big waste (as well as plain irresponsible) for an experienced novelist to develop two [ridiculously] cute girls—just so that they can be topped by a plain girl? Not to mention the cover art of the first light novel volume and the anime, itself! ...

    10/10! - Saekano is hilarious with beautiful art and character design!
    Saekano's debut episode is excellent. The art and overall production quality is stunning with each character being full of personality. A big bonus is that there's lots of fanservice! :P and the amusing writing keeps you engaged right from the start.

    10/10 - Highly Recommended!

    Amazing anime seems to be very comedy based! :D
    This show made me laugh from pretty much the very begin it seems to be very comedy based and that is always a good thing to have in a show. This show is probably that funny because all of these girls seem to want this one guy to themselves and basically fight amongst each other trying to get him!

    Saekano -- Anime 101
    Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend - or more properly 'How to Train an Ordinary Girl to be a Heroine' - is about an extreme otaku named Tomoya Aki. He runs a popular anime/manga review blog, he's awkward around women, and he dreams of one day creating the ultimate dating sim. This is where Saekano picks up.

    He's just been struck with his inspiration, his muse if you will, when he notices ...

    OH THE DRAMATIC IRONY!
    This is a show with a pretty interesting premise; an open otaku is in charge of a club of other otakus who happen to all be cute girls.

    Although the characters are pretty stereotypical in terms of a comedy anime, what makes this show unique and enjoyable is its dialogue. Of course they usually talk about video games and anime, yet there are two factors of the dialogue that make it so ...

    An interesting approach to true selfness
    It's just fun to watch, has daily life elements mixed up with the usual advantages of being an anime-drawn character. It seems it's going to get better since we are all about to discover the fun part of the boring girlfriend. Adding all up, it also has a very unique way to present the animation, it's something enjoyable.

    Three Episodes in - Looks like a winner..
    This is turning into one of the better anime in an otherwise boring season. Love how "meta" it is in pointing out and defying harem tropes! Episode 0 - which seems to be criticized for excessive fan service and exaggerated harem tropes, is a foil to how the rest of the episodes are playing out. It's not about that at all - this show is really about the "boring girlfriend" who defies ...

    A hidden and misinterpreted gem
    This show is truly underrated I believe because the drama within the show is excellently handled from the way our main protagonist goes about it and the resolution actually has meaning and depth to it. We don't see half-a**ed plot convenience and the way the drama is handled brings out the characterization of our characters. The characters are not amazing, but Kato is a really refreshing character ...

    Definitely A 5 Star Show!
    This is a very funny show, which shows the collaboration between multiple different school kids. It has a strong main purpose which is creating the game and also completely goes from the romance anime, although some would say it may stay somewhere along those lines. I definitely recommend this anime!
