    After two episodes I’m diggin it more
    This show it definitely worth following every week. Especially if you’re a Quintessential Quintuplets fan

    Thus far, I find this show quite similar to Quintessential Quintuplets, but there are some striking differences as to the way this MC communicates with the initial girls. I found the gentle nature of his approach and his desire to understand where these girls are coming from refreshing. The ...

    Looking for a harem fix?
    This is an in-progress review, and will be edited again the series progresses and concludes.

    The premise isn't new. In fact, for many it immediately invokes a "Quintessential Quintuplets" response, since that anime series was excellent and just finished a run before this started.
    This anime is a different take on the idea, but there are a lot of similarities in the premise.

    While the ...

    May not be original, but still looks very good
    The show isn't original by it's overall plot, a boy who is good in all subjects has to tutor girls that are amazing in only one, but it's still a fun anime. The show seems full of good humor and has very good artwork throughout the first episode at least.
    The opening and closing songs are catchy and upbeat enough that I will likely listen to both every episode.
    No one so far seems like a ...

    if this show had come out a few months ago it would be ranked a lot higher
    As its only 1 episode, take this with a grain of salt but this feels like a less funny, less enjoyable version of Quintessential Quintuplets. with more episodes maybe it will be able to distinguish itself but for now i can't help but compare the two.

  • Lighthearted and Fantastic Writing
    Been really looking forward to this. A great manga series that I am about 3 volumes in. So happy to see this series get an anime. Another of these funny tutor scenarios where the main character is put in a position of having to teach some of the elite girls at the school. The thing that makes this series stand out from the rest though is the writing and characters. The writing I just feel is ...

    First episode review/impression
    I found the first episode rather exhilarating. It may not be completely original, and by all means most animes are not, but you'd be lying if you said it wasn't good. I was recommended to watch it by a friend who is in the process of reading the manga. A beautiful intro soundtrack followed by presumably strong story and characters with distinguishable, memorable traits. I found myself smiling and ...

    Amazing delivery of one of my favorite manga
    I had a lot of doubt going into this series because I had heard many negative comments having to do with the fact that the animation studios making the show had not done much. But boy was I relieved when the first episode came out and it had quality animation as well as great voice acting.

    Now the second episode comes out and it's just superb, the manga is being adapted well and you can see all ...

    cute, but nothing special
    I'm surprised by how many new Anime get 5 stars from so many people. This one is good, but not nearly as good as, for example, "Fruit Basket" or the one about the occult phenomena.

    The characters on this one seem a bit one dimensional and not very believable; barring some severe learning disability a student can't be excellent in Math and zero in literature. At least in the story with the five ...

    Nice wholesome cute Nisekoi but everything is a lot better
    Ever watch Nisekoi before? Welp, make Chitoge less of a donkey (No vulgar language)and make Onodera a little more courageous with less of the deeper story behind and here you have a super cute and wholesome harem anime with the main character isn't getting all the chicks around him but has the chicks he needs.

    Pretty good show, but not a knockoff of QQ
    I started this show after I finished Quintessential Quintuplets. This looked like it had a similar vibe.

    At first I thought this might be a knockoff of QQ (yes, I now know that the source for this existed first). But honestly, this show has a fairly different feel. It's a bit more episodic, but overall it's really good.
