5 WORDS OR LESS REVIEW: Surprisingly Entertaining

I didn’t really like harem anime series, but I actually liked Canvas 2. In fact, I think I looked forward to watching it. That’s really surprising, because normally I would avoid series that had ero-game written all over it. It was really interesting to see how Hiroki, the main character, would interact with the girls in his life, a lot of them under-aged, I might add.

Again harem/romance type. similar character designs and behavior. You got to like it when you liked the other one
Both titles have the same "sibiling love" theme in it , with more or less the same relationship development from the begining, right to the very end of the two shows.

Opening Theme

"Plastic Smile (Niji-iro guitar version)" by Honey Bee[YURIA]

Ending Theme

"NA NA IRO" by Sweets Tankentai
