SynopsisIt's one thing to honor your ancestors and keep old traditions alive, but there IS such a thing as taking it to a ridiculous extreme. In Kawakami City, having a samurai ancestor and enormous 'fighting spirit' isn't just an interesting fact, it's a huge part of how you end up being ranked on the social totem pole. That, in turn, rolls over into the school curriculum. Fortunately, that's something the local kids like Yamato Naoe have learned to deal with by forming into small 'bands,' (that's the samurai type, NOT music). However, while the delicate sexual balance of Yamato's group seemed fine when there were three girls and four boys, the sudden addition of two MORE girls starts to send everything spinning out of control!

Characters & Voice Actors
First of all, my purpose writing this review for this anime is to clarify any negative comments about this anime, since so many review saying this anime is horrible because the anime itself didnt really like the VN. really? just for that reason? Honestly, why do people comparing the VN with the anime itself? we're talking about the anime in here not VN. oh god...
When i finished this series i was kinda surprised, because the score in MAL itself didnt represent how good this anime was, i dont say this anime was the best but its quite entertaining, that 6.99 is just so UNDERRATED. remember that.
I have seen the VN itself but i am not gonna compare it, so i judge this anime purely based on how excited when i watching this anime.
STORY - The story itself , i am not quite sure if this anime have a plot. I though the preview in MAL has explain it all. its about a bunch of girls and some boy who lives in under one roof, they represent theyself as kawakami family (sounds like a mafia, huh?), and the first of the episode you will see a war (yeah a war) which happen like in three kingdoms era. if you're thinking WTF is this, then i said this was an extracurriculer from the school that they attends. Shortly, for me Maji de Watashi is like Angel beats (Bunch of people) + Oda Nobuna (the war from edo era).
At the first, it would quite hard to follow what happen in this anime since so many things that would make the viewers scratching their head. It cant be helped since, many scenes of this anime is slices of the Visual Novel itself, no wonder if the story is kinda messed up and didnt focus on the plot.
be reversed from the story itself, The jokes that appears in this anime was really hit the spot, its really funny and quite amusing. 6/10
ART - The artwork that the Maji de Watashi have is literally good, its not something that really exaggerate. The biright coloring that they use is pretty much increasing the atmosphere, Colorful scenery, and the character design itself is pretty well made, though the quality is seems a bit lower for the other anime but the art in this anime is still pretty enjoyable to watch. However, sometimes there is a lack in character drawn quality. In some scenes, the character face seems quite been "distracted", but thats doesnt really bothering. SO, 8/10.
VOICE ACTOR - I am really attached by the voice for each character, they really represents the trait of each character, like Momoyo, she is tomboy, and the voice that they present was really like a real tomboy person, heavy voice and yet its cute. and anoher thing that should we mention is Gotou Yuuko. As the voice actor for MAyuzumi Yukie, her voice was so adorable and cute. No matter how many times you hear it, you wouldnt bored and helped to fallin love 8/10
SONG - This is maybe the reason why i love to watch Maji de Watashi. especially the OP song + the animation for the OP itself. "U-n-d-e-r--STANDING!" by Endoh Masaaki, Kitadani Hiroshi, Misato Aki is quite catchy rock song, The beats is really hyped up the viewers like me, nor it was perfectly fit with the anime.
CHARACTER - Well, its like any other harem anime, we have a tsundere (Christiane Friedrich), Dandere ( Yukie Mayuzum), the energetic one (Kazuko Kawakami), Big boobs (Momoyo Kawakami), and of course the obssesive one (Miyako Shiina) which reminds me of Sacchan in Gintama and for the main lead we have Naoe Yamato, which is very fits for the male lead, he is smart and yet its doesnt easy to tease this guy with the flirt from all the girls and a point plus for this male lead is he is not "shy" like any other harem anime.
We have a bunch of unique girls, of course it was the standard of all harem. but somehow i found its really amusing. 8/10
CONCLUSION - Basically, its lack of the story like everyone had said. but i am not really like concern about that problem since for me harem anime is just for entertaining, so i score this anime based on how satisfaction i am when i watching this anime, so did i satisfied with this anime? yes it is. its funny and yet admirable, especially for each character. so 8/10 for me.
I am writing this review based on what this anime is about: harem and action. Everyone compares it to the VN, I personally have not played it, so this is an unbiased review.
Story- there really isn't one to speak of, other than trying to beat the former DEVA. It's the basic harem where the girls try to get the guy, but the girls are more forceful than other harems(miyako is my favourite, she would strip naked in public if Yamato asked). The action just from the first episode is so over the top with added superpowers makes it just awesome.
Art- the art is enjoyable, the characters are well drawn, the backgrounds too. The fights, anything involving momoyo, are fast, which all you see is arms going back and forth, so it's like they got lazy. The art isn't amazing, but it's still good.
Sound- it went good with most scenes, the fights had excellent soundtracks, the OP and ED were good but not catchy enough for me
Characters- they all followed their respective archetypes, but were more or less open with their feelings, except momoyo. With a half season, the show didn't focus on character development but the action aspect of it, each fight being better than the last.
Enjoyment-I watched this show purely for the harem and action that it had. If you don't like this type of anime don't watch it, if u think this is like the VN don't watch it cause u will bitch about it the whole time.
This anime didn't try to be anything that it wasn't, on the action part, it nailed it, the harem, miyako dull it down and mayu be just a little less awkward, the ecchi was fine, always just in the bath, never in fights to keep focus on the action. It was enjoyable, but it could've been better with 24-26 episodes and a clear choice on who he would choose out of the five. read more
Mostly fighting in episode one with all the characters, most of which are females. It's pretty much the same in the entire anime.
Both of these Anime deal with school settings and Samurai lenages. Both also aired during the same time frame.
in Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai! the main guy is surrounded by a whole lot of girls who's after him, similar to kyoSen (Kyoukai Senjou..), they both also have a fighting type style school. both are funny, both have a wide variety of martial arts and a wide variety of sizes^^...u know what i mean ^^..ohh and also i think the plot for both might be similar...i cant tell yet since there's only been 1 episode out so far for both anime.
Will edit as the anime progress...
