Hanayaka Nari, Waga Ichizoku: Kinetograph is yet another typical reversed harem shoujo series set in the early 20th century of Japan's Taisho era.
I'm not a fan of doing a review based on the first episode, but if my deduction is correct, it will take the most common course of action.

Story: The story itself is quite intriguing - the head of the Miyanomori family has many sons from different wives. He plans on retiring, but he will leave the inheritance to only one of them. All of the sons have 10 months to make the old colonel happy. How? That's for them to decide.

Let me start off by saying that when I first started watching this OVA I thought that even though the guys were complete douchebags to the female lead, they would eventually warm up and even develop feelings for her.

that's normally how romantic harems go right?

well I hate to be the bear of bad news but not this one kids

This anime is a complete and utter waste of time, it started off with the whole hopeless maid story going then ended up taking a completely different turn in the second episode, a plot turn, in which I found completely boring and had nothing to do read more

This anime is not amazing, but I don't think it's horrible. I do hope there is another episode, so that proves it's not that bad. I really loved the artwork in this, and I thought the songs were beautiful. It is a typical reverse harem, but I don't believe there is anything wrong with that! The main character in my opinion was a little weak, but with these types of anime it's hard to make a main female character with loads of personality. They have to suit each male character, most harems–though I haven't seen many, I don't like how the girls are displayed in read more

To be blunt, this OVA was a complete waste of my time: I've never given such low ratings pior nor, I doubt, will I do again.

My patience was immensely tested throughout the span of these two episodes; I kept watching hope against hope that there would be a spark of brilliance of plot twist or character development. But all I seemingly did was watch a young girl fall, break things, cry, and apologize repeatedly for two hours, and the men around her acting without the decorum that suits their high status. The first few minutes of the first episode tricked me into thinking this read more

A reverse harem anime. There are brothers who fall in love with the same girl.
- both are about a girl who gets treated like trash by a bunch of 'hot' brothers
- both heroines constantly saying "I'm sorry"
- both reverse harems
Reverse Harem

The female leads seem a bit nervous and want to give up at first, but as the series goes on they become more determined.
Both great quality, and have good story lines.
Both are reverse harem themed anime with very [annoying] indecisive main characters with no special traits or talents. I guess you can say their only "good" trait is their naiveness to a fault but the main character in both anime (of course) ties the otherwise complicated and distant group of guys together with their meekness and can-do attitude. Typical for for otohime anime I suppose with relatively good art and different, handsome men.
- Girls have somehow same/similar personality
- It's both OVA's
- Both of them are/contains reverse harem
- They're definetly both a great time to waste on!
- Even though the stories takes place in a different time, they're filled with funny, romantic - and somehow same - moments.
Similar reverse harem based on an Otome game.

In both Arcana Famgilia and Hanayaka, the head of the family is retiring and now one must be chosen to become the next heir.
