    Can I Meet the Protagonist Plz? (First Impression)
    Butlers X Battlers has an extremely weak first episode due to introducing a million characters in a single episode without taking the time to establish a baseline for what to expect from them. Honestly, when I first started watching this, I wondered if I missed a prequel because the show seems to expect you to understand and bond with characters who have almost no character traits.

    Like, they ...

    Barely worth reviewing
    This is as generic as it can get. The whole thing is just a bunch of yaoi bait except the student council president might want to bang his sister. Even the way they introduce each character is generic and boring (add sparkly background and show the character name while striking a pose for 15 seconds).

    This is a definite no for me.

    So far just fan service with a hint of a plot....
    Updated at episode 5. Still the same: 2.5 stars, rounded up. I'm on the verge of quitting this one. Plot? Please? Pretty please?

    This reminds me of another game anime (maybe it is?). Lots of pretty bishies abound, sparkling and smiling. At the center, a grim bishie from 100 years before who is trying to figure out why he woke up in the future and where his sister disappeared (quite literally) ...

  • Could have been good...
    What's good : A lot of pretty boys, 'cause you can't have too much. A plot with potential with mystery, time travel and superpower.

    What's bad : More fanservice than anything else. Everyone is a butler. Ok not everyone but kind of and even if they are they're so bland.

    So yah nothing great here but it was not terrible. Kind of disappointed since the plot was interesting.

  • Where did the potential go?
    Butlers who defend the timeline with their special powers is a pretty awesome setup for an anime and I walked into this without looking at reviews which maybe I should have because I was expecting something a lot better.

    The storyline was there-ish. The basis of the story is that the main character J is is trying to go back in time to save his sister. The whole entire series yet we see barely ...

  • Waste opportunity for a ongoing storyline
    The story had a lot of options to be something really good and interesting. A diverse cast of character that was very much underused then basically pointless to be even part of the story at the end.
    As with other reviews, there wasn't much use for the Butlers context but that could have just been a translation misconception. When I thinking butler it's more the Sebastian Michaelis from Black ...

  • You're a butler! You're a butler! Everyone is a butler
    Bad animation, sibling complex and a confuse of who the actual protagonist could be.

    I couldn't remember why I wanted to see this, but I continued watching it cause I have a habit of finishing animes no matter how bad they get. It definitely had some shipping moments between the guys. It felt like the story lacked and they focused too much on the sister complex. Then turned around and slapped ...

    Not for shoujo haters
    If you're good at alternating between taking a show seriously one moment and laughing at it the next, then you should enjoy this. Don't be fooled by Crunchyroll's description of the show. On the serious side, the plot is actually pretty interesting. There's a lot of mystery here; with shoujo anime, I rarely get invested in the plot, but the two main characters' history is something I am genuinely ...

    Pretty boys and something dark!
    Lots of pretty boys perfect if you are a Fujoshi or Fundashi! I don't know who my favorite otp for this is yet but we will see. It's not an Pop idol anime, if you don't like Shoujo or bl it's probably not for you.

    If you love pretty bois by all means enjoy.

    NOT JUST PRETTY FACES, A MYSTERY TO UNFOLD
    Well, the pilot episode is pretty good, leaving us in the dark while giving us a glimpse of each character in the series. I kinda see amnesia in this, it is dark and seems to have a plot twist at the end. Each boy has their own persona and I believe they will be slowly introduced as the series goes (hold your horses, people).
    The art style is really pretty and I am for sure looking forward on how ...
