Our Review : First of all, this is the first harem anime that I watched that I liked so much that got me into making a review for it.
The story is quite nice and somehow unpredictable. If you've watched Da Capo, it resembles most of it. But the way the story is presented, and the story itself, has a unique touch to it.
Even though it's harem (I don't like harem animes anyway) this is entertaining to the point that I really watched 11 episodes in one sitting and I never included this anime in my Dropped list. I gave the story a 9 because I enjoyed it so much; even though others doesn't like its ending, I personally have nothing to say about its end.
The art is better than other harem animes, and it's just good. It may not be the best, but the art is great.
I couldn't remember other music here, but the opening and ending songs are nice because it actually gives a very simple feeling to the anime.
The characters have different strengths and weaknesses and it was presented in the story in a way that the main guy character is always involved in them.
I enjoyed it so much that I loved it!
This is one harem kind of anime you might want to watch... ^_^
