  • well done harem-ish series
    Not a pure harem romcom, but uses all the same ingredients. Also depends heavily on the "be/make the best/strongest mech/manga/game/martial art" kinda a fill in the blank series. Or a paint by number. At least "Saekano" is well done. Production values are above average, characters are above average looking (quality-wise), music and VA's are well done as well. In a mass of similar series' with ...

  • How to Make a Boring Harem Anime
    Pretty girls in an inexplicable orbit around a young man is a thing, and this is that thing for sure. Very pretty, very harem, very inexplicable... But it's been done better elsewhere, and with a better hook than training a young women to fit herself into a commercially viable version of a girlfriend....

  • Yeah that was pretty awesome
    Alright, Megumi Kato was like a, hmm for lack of a better example, a pack of nerds candy for me. When she was first introduced, I was like, yeah she's alright kinda cute character, w/e. But, as the episodes went by her little funny remarks, and oddly unemotional front really grew on me. And then, next thing I knew I wanted more and more of her (get the nerds thing yet?). It's like when you have ...

  • Much Better Than I Expected
    I've just been binging anime recently and stumbled upon this anime from the recommended section. I began watching it with no expectations and was genuinely surprised at how good this show was. Great characters with genuine emotions and personalities that don't just swoon over the main character for no real good reason. Simply a fun story of a group of friends creating a romance game while ...

    You've already watched this.
    Sigh,

    Another anime male that's so stiff and unforgivably white knight it makes me cringe when the girls are being touchy-feely and he doesn't play it cool and just enjoy himself for US the viewers. I've cringed so many times when the girls are just having fun with him and he wants to suss it out, this is obviously brainwashing young males into having no ochin-chin and you wonder why the ...

    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!

  • Snark Galore in this Harem
    The dry, dark, snarky humor in this is right up my alley. Especially Megumi, who just grows more better and better as you go. The animation and music are also pretty good in this too. That was a happy surprise. Otherwise, it is your standard harem/otaku anime. It does start off a bit slow however, so hang in there.

  • Started slow and simple, but grew deeper and more fun.
    This was really, really fun. Especially the occasions they broke through the fourth wall. The intense harem interaction, combined with the disinterested, seemingly clueless "heroine", made for great fun.

    I'm not sure what made this anime feel different from other ones I've seen. It started feeling trite, simple, and stupid - and retained that feeling somewhat throughout - but slowly ...

  • I Love It, But I Don't
    I almost feel like Saekano is a guilty pleasure. Every character is a horrible person and weirdly sexual, but yet I liked each one a lot for different reasons.
    For being such a dumb premise, this show actually works pretty well. It feels pretty ambiguous though. I wouldn't say I loved this show, but I AM super excited for the Nendoroids of the three main girls coming out.
    It's just so weird and ...
