    The cover looked so good...
    This has all the makings of a generic reverse harem. That is all that the first episode really inspires me to write. It has the same setup as most animes of it's kind. Nosy wannabe "alpha" female is in trouble and meets a group of guys with no personality who immediately fall under her spell and decide to do anything to help her. The only twist (if you can even call it that given the ...

    Interesting take on the supernatural.
    I actually really like some of the ideas and twists this particular series takes on the supernatural. It's fun to see old characters from folklore re imagined this way. Also, A+ to making a heroine which is not completely annoying for this type of genre. I like that she's capable and not super whiny.

    Four Super Powered Guys Stop Tiny Exchange Student from Punching Everything
    Ton goes abroad to study, but when her best friend is kidnapped and she enlists her great grandmother's harem to help get her back.

    I kind of love how Ton will try to fight anything. Like, her first instinct is to put up her dukes and it takes four super powered guys to stop her from punching God, the devil, and everything in between. If there was supposed to be romance in this I totally ...

    Barely hanging on watching this one
    The fact that I'm still watching this even though it's below average is more about the fact that this season's anime are just not that great (with a few notable exceptions). I'm guessing this is another game-turned-anime, given the lack of true plotline and rationale for the main characters' actions.

    There's no depth of character here, only bishies and a spunky heroine. Half the time I'm ...

    This is a mish-mash of genres.

A young girl goes to the "Cafe Forbidden. It is a place where the guardians of the border between human and shadow gather." And, she goes to rescue her friend, with the assistance of Dracula. ...

    Better than expected
    Hey, look! It's a main character that doesn't annoy the pants off you! I'm impressed... (and relieved). The story is pretty good, albeit not spectacular so far. I'm really pleased with the main character, though. She's not stereotypical, and she's quite likeable.

    It's the typical reverse Harem
    While I am loath to write a review period, I do like to look at the reviews to try to get a feel for what I might expect from a show. This is a typical reverse Harem that gives you the typical story that runs in the middle or higher portion of the pack during any anime season. first episode got 4.5 stars from 228 people

    .I doubt anyone should write a review based on 1 episode. At the time of ...

  • Quite an enjoyable anime
    It is a good anime, with cute guys and a strong heroine. The plot is a bit... rough, in my opinion but, I believe it could be salvaged if there is a season 2. Though a bit rushed at the end, which is why I'm giving it 4 stars. Hoping for a season 2, nonetheless!

  • kidnapping is normal apparently...
    I originally was looking forward to this show. I liked the idea of these classic monsters in the modern world surviving and blending in all the while having their own business.

    But apparently the main character Ton, never blinks an eye at her friend being kidnapped repeatedly and missing and2 enjoys herself with her new friends more then anything. The show goes sideways with the levels of no ...

  • wasted potential anime
    i really started liking the anime when i started but by the end the characters did nothing but paint by number and it fell apart at the seams. The story line start off being original but they start to many threads for them to finish then they never finish the ones they hold on too. i would suggest you skip it. it a failed attempt at best.
