Rizu is the natural math and science genius but her dream is to get into a liberal arts college . She wants to accomplish her goal to help her connect with people which a lot can connect with .

While all the girls develop feelings for the main character its because of different reasons which was great change of pace . Deep down both of them develop love towards Nariyuki because he helps them achieve their goals and listens to them .

Communication is the main source of connecting with someone which a lot of harem shows don’t convey as much as they used to.

Music in the show is a little disappointing and speeds through the manga more touching moments

Remember folks we have a podcast that we run fairly frequently which is here

The series was one of the few series that got people into anime during that time . Playing on the tropes of the Fujushi tastes .It struck a chord with both men and women alike and was most people’s first dive into shojo genre outside of Sailor Moon for a lot of fans . But what may have started as Satire in retrospective the show created characters truly unique as the cast themselves all have defining moments which has sparked many shipping wars within the female anime community.

Haruhi the main character is breath of fresh air for many people as she gives no shit on her appearance or how she is perceived by people. Before the events of the series her mother passed away leaving her and her father to fend for themselves. Her Father is revealed to be a Okama ( in general term for homosexuality) but in this case a drag performer. Which gives context to Haruhi having a strong sense of identity.

The leader is Tamaki voiced by Award Winning Vic Mignogna who is mostly a comedic foil to the rest of the characters. He is constant flirt – Half Japanese Half French main host who slowly grows to love Haruhi as a woman .

Every character has flaws and a dark side which bring strength to the humor and the show

Absolute Rubbish – Absolute Duo Review

Where to begin with probably worst anime  of 2015 . Based on the light novel of the same name created by Takumi Hiiragiboshi who’s only credit is this joke of a show takes place at a school where the student Battle each other using weapons called Blaze . Our main character Tor uses a Blaze shield which makes him an irregular user

Each student is paired with a partner that compliments their fighting style . Tor is teamed up with Julie Sigtuna a supposed a Scandinavian girl who uses 2 swords as weapons .

This is where things end on common and entertainment as things get way to clichéd as the they throw in too cliched boring girls into this harem. The only redeeming feature being a psychotic bunny teacher who barely shows up in the series to make room for a villain group called Equipment Smiths who have a feud with one of the harem girls family’s and only want power.

But the biggest problem is bland main character . Tor is searching vengeance for his family that was killed by a mysterious group that isn’t brought up a lot in story and his goal changes to being strong enough to protect Julie

Animation is sub standard at best which is why I really need to ask why create something so crappy 1.5/5

Trouble Chocolate Review

In Anime we have many different types of Harems but while most of them have some redeeming things whether comedy, entertaining fan service, or even action in some cases. Some can be just irritating. Sadly this is one of those Harems.

Trouble Chcoclate

Worst anime animation in awhile

Story :Cacao woke up to find a girl sleeping next to him. Unable to remember what had happened on his own and didn’t get enough needed answers from Hinano, he went to school to ask his friends what had happened. He finally got the explanation of events from Prof. Ghana in term Cacao joined his wizardry class. Turns out he hate a 200-year-old magical bar of Chocolate and gave life to a Marionette.

trouble chcoclate backdrop

While a lot of this show tries to parody other shows in the same genre the humour really falls flat over the show . The animation and artwork used in the show is barely scrapping industry standard . One of the Worst Harem Shows I have ever seen . What ever you don’t watch this its just really crappy. It’s not offensive its just bland over used troupes over and over again.

trinity seven

Trinity 7 Anime Review

Kasuga Arata lived a normal life together with his childhood friend, Hijiri, in a small town. However, everything changed on the day of the Black Sun, and a magician appeared before him. The Black Sun caused the Breakdown Phenomenon which destroyed the town where he lives. Because of this, his normal life was artificially reconstructed by a grimoire that his childhood friend had left. The appearance of the magician led him to a new life in the Royal Biblia Academy and meeting the members of the Trinity Seven.

Later he learns the only way to rescue his childhood friend is to become friends and use the magic of the Trinity Seven the most powerful magic users in the school with his own power of Lord Demon Candidate. The offers some great comedic moments mixed in with some good magic battles . But outside the typical Harem story the elements that make it most unique is the magic .

Magic in this universal is all based on the opposite of our most negative trait . For example Kasuga most negative trait is he is a massive pervert. So he soon realizes his magic and power is based on control.

Overall the story is fun fast paced with a good sense of humour . Quite enjoyable for a Harem show in today’s current Anime season
