When boys suddenly get into places where they've never been allowed before, some girls tend to get upset. So when the decision is made to merge the elite Yuihime Girls' Private Academy and the coeducational Kagamidai Private Academy, everyone wants to take extra care in avoiding trouble while bringing the two Privates together. Therefore, rather than just bringing the Kagamidai boys into the Yuihime girls' school all at once, a plan is concocted in which a group of test males will be inserted into the Girls' Private Academy first.

Thus, poor young Shingo finds himself being thrown as a sacrificial lamb to the lionesses of Yuihime, who aren't exactly waiting for him with open arms. Will Shingo manage to survive the estrogen soaked death pit that is Yuihime? Can the girls learn to be more receptive to the boys? And just how long until something involving panties will cause emotions to flare, sparks to fly and the battle of the sexes to explode?

Once upon a time, I was browsing through My Anime List, looking for a new anime to watch. That's when I found Mashiroiro Symphony. From the look of it, I guessed that it was based off of a visual novel. I've been a big fan of visual novels being turned into animes, I guess that's why I liked A Bridge to the Starry Skies, The Rose Madder Colored Hills, etc. So, I decided to try it. I didn't expect to find such a masterpiece.

So, story wise, nothing fancy. It's your typical harem anime that starts out with a boy coincidentally meeting what appears to be read more

When I first took a look into Mashiro-iro Symphony I never thought it would drag me in as much as it did. It took hold of my attention when I was watching, and didn't let go of me until I got though the whole anime; and yes I did marathon the anime for me it was that good.
I've always been a fan of romance animes, they're what I go to when I need an uplifting story or a sad one; this anime does it that bill of being one of read more

This is quite possibly the best anime that I've ever seen that has harem listed as a genre.

I'm sure that you will all agree that the most annoying thing about any harem anime is the perverted characters who tries to hit on everyone/ gets hit on by everyone. Thus, I have more or less given up on the harem genre and steer well clear. However, this anime is like hope at the bottom of Pandora's box.

I really like how the protagonist is not just a decent person for once but he cares so much about everyone around him. All he is ever trying to do read more

Hi, um new to the reviewing table, but have watched my fair amount of anime.
Mashiroiro Symphony, was a decent anime, the main character was a likable character, not to dense, but also extremely dense. Honestly, if the anime had more drama and more episodes to deepen the plot then it would be one of the best anime. The story is basically a high school teenager male that is attending a former all-girls school as a test to see if it can go fully co-ed. He is kind and that apparently wins the hearts of several girls. What was hilarious though was that the plot went read more

Anime: Clannad
The little sister of the main character from Mashiroiro is similar to Furukawa Nagisa from Clannad. They both appears to be weak but works hard and are very resilient, not to mention cute.

The original soundtracks from both the series are very alike.

The atmosphere at the school is quite the same too.

Both are originated from Visual Novel.

The calm and smooth going plot of both anime are very appealing to watch.

Anime: Akane-iro ni Somaru Saka
These series have quite a few simularities. First of, there is the young male who lives with his younger sister. He ends up helping out a female and the next day meets her at school, only to find out that she has another side to her personality. There is also a color theme.
