    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 ...

    A flawed magical reverse harem type
    Early review, to be updated:
    While I try not to be too hard on any new series early on, there are a number of drawbacks I feel must be considered for this series.
    () The drawing is decent, but the animation is cut rate.
    People in the background are static, characters sit still for extended periods of time, and other general shortcuts are taken with the animation that make it feel ...

    Not very interesting is what i can pretty much sum up.
    The storyline setup is pretty awful, The anime looks like I seen the same characters in every vampire, warewolf and witch magical anime out there. It seems like this anime evolves around a magical cafe that just so happens to be owned by the main characters dead relative. Just not for me is all I can say.

    Enjoyed it so far - I'm giving it a chance
    To counterbalance the other rather negative reviews, I'll say that I liked it so far, I'm looking forward to the next episode so it's staying on my list. (And I'm not a normally a fan of reverse harem anime's.)
    [Cruncyroll: fix the stupid review length requirement (250 characters is no more likely to produce a quality review than 10). Longer does not equal better.]

    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 ...

    This is a mish-mash of genres.
    The plot is exciting, but it involves every creature ever conjured up in London, There's werewolves, vampires, Jack the Ripper, Ghosts all involved with the protagonist, fortunately half are on her side. 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.

    not your ordinary reverse harem
    Speaking over the first 5 episodes

    By description, this show sounds like many which came before it: Reverse harem with supernatural creatures surrounding a girl with special powers. However, I find it surprising me quite often. The MC has a brain and doesn't wilt at every romantic provocation. Actually, I would say the focus of the show is on action, comedy, and romance in that order. The ...

  • teenage girl fantasy reverse harem
    I wanted to like this one but I'm just unimpressed with this series. Its too bad because I usually like supernatural / fantasy type anime. It just feels too thrown together. The characters are too flat and uninteresting, especially the MC. There is too much teen girl reverse harem fluff and not enough character development or backstory.

    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 ...
