  • A fun time making fun of tropes.
    This was a pretty fun show full of all the romantic tropes and it had fun with it. The characters would complain often about the tropes that the other characters living out but since they are all working in the industry it was fun to see a trope complain about other. Pot calling the kettle black much. This show is light and fun with quite a bit of fan service. I’ve only seen the first season since ...

    i hate this anime with a passion
    this anime is riddled with unnecessary drama, and the ending provides not satisfaction or payoff. i honestly feel that this anime is a pretentious piece of hot garbage, and that nobody should watch it. the person who wrote this should learn how to write, and whoever likes it has no taste.

  • Really Good Anime For Sure
    This anime is freaking amazing and I know there is a season 2 of it however, even if it is a really good anime I'm not quite interested in keep watching it. But again, if I ever find the time I will definitely check out season 2. I also do wanna see who he chooses in the end either way, so I'll check out season 2 sooner or later.

  • Personally, a good one
    its a really good anime in my opinion! (But seriously this 240 characters thing for review is kind of irritating...)

    Though a bit disappointed that there's probably not another season of this.

    frustrating execution of a fundamentally flawed idea
    I just sat through both seasons and this has to be the most consistently frustrating anime I've ever seen. It's a lewd rom com with a male protagonist that is entirely sexless. He isn't just wishy washy, he literally appears to have no interest in the women at all. He doesn't even treat them as people, more like avatars of the media he consumes, devoid of humanity and agency. He isn't ...

  • Saekano is Worth Your Time!!
    First off: At the time of writing this review, Crunchyroll only has Season 1 of this series. If you enjoy this first season even a little bit, I feel that you MUST watch the second season. It introduces a bit of a different tone and brings an excellent continuation to the series.
    Second: If you have any interest in anime, visual novels, light novels, or anything related, I feel like this series ...

  • #60. My favorite meta humor harem.
    Saekano -How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend- knows what it's audience wants, and provides that to a tee.

    Saekano is what I would classify as being a "smart harem." With anime and eroge market parodies and references all over the place. Come to think of it though, despite the anime being known/labeled as ecchi, it is actually very tame in that department compared to many others in it's genre. It's ...

  • 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....
