So I just got done watching Brothers Conflict, the shoujo anime of the summer season 2013. So in Brothers Conflict we are following Ema Hinata, a young girl of 16 years old that decided to live with her 13 so called 'siblings' and here is where the trouble begins.
Story: 4/10 The story is very simple, it is a reverse harem it speaks for itself. Girl lives with brothers, all the brothers want a piece of her (or at least most of them). The sad thing is that each episode basically jumps from brother to brother, the main character Ema doesn't form a strong bond with any of the brothers because of the continuesly jumping from one to the other yet most of the brothers all want a romanctic relationship with her while they barely know anything about our main character Ema. But I will delve into this further in the character section.
The reason why I gave the story a 4/10 is because it is a very mainstream anime and not a lot happens, it is all centered around one question which is: who gets the girl? which is exactly the point of a reverse harem. The odd thing that bothers me is that each time you see one of the brothers on screen with Ema they either hug her or kiss her or in the very least touch her and after all that happened she just carries on with her day like nothing of the sorts happened though she consiously knows how all of them feel about her but it just seems like she shrugs it off like it is an everyday thing. Although she proclaims to only want to be 'siblings' with her brothers she gradually allows any of the guys to kiss her and do anything with her as they please.
From episode 1 she knows that they aren't really her siblings since her dad married their mother so technically non of them are related by blood only they are legally a family on paper. Eventhough she knows this she still continues to call them her 'siblings' which is disturbing since the fact that almost everyone of them want to have a romantic relationship with our main character Ema. Everytime she called them her siblings I found myself yelling at the screen 'You aren't siblings! realize that!'
Art: 7/10 the art is basically the save and grace for this anime, the animation is beautiful and fluent, the backgrounds are spendidly done and of course the originality of each character is beautifully portrait. Each one of the brothers are easy to recognize by either hair style/hair color and the color of their eyes. The only downside I have on the art is that the emotions aren't easily recognizable on their faces. Even when they are happy they are very mediocre about it.
Sound: 5/10 the sound was very average in my opinion, each time the intro music and the outro music began to play I found myself skipping over it entirely since I didn't enjoy listening to them. The lyrics weren't the best either, the music is very upbeat and fast paced. Not that there is anything wrong with an upbeat song and I understand they needed to make a happy sounding opening/ending since it is a reverse harem and it is all about romance but I felt like it wasn't necessary. It wasn't bad so to say but it wasn't really enjoyable to me but that is just my personal opinion, each person has his or her own taste of music.
Character: 3/10 The character development is very bad to say the least. Like I said before each episode focuses on one brother at a time and since we have 13 brothers in the house and our main character Ema, character development is very limited.
Not to mention that Ema our lovely main character is as emotional as a brick wall. What is so appealing to her that almost every guy wants a romantic relationship with her? The only traits she has is that she is a nice and caring person and likes video games. That's it. Nothing more.
The fact annoys me that the brothers barely spoke with her and immediatly they have a crush on her, with some of the brothers she has a better connection then with the others but eventhough despite this most of them want her, is it because she is good looking? Not particularly, she looks like an average young girl. Is it because of her character then? No because her emotions are turned off 24/7. So what is it? It is because she is our main character and so that makes it automatically the person everyone desires.
Because it has so many characters and only 12 episodes the character development was sadly nowhere to be found.
Enjoyment: 7/10 despite all the negative aspects of this anime I found it rather enjoyable. not because of the story writing or the characters but mostly because I had a good laugh out of it, every time one of the guys had an encounter with Ema that didn't make any sense at all I found myself at least given a chuckle about this whole affair.
I might give a little spoiler here but in one of the scenes one of the brothers realized he wanted to grow more before he can be a good man to her and it was a very dramatic scene with sad music playing in the background and you know that this was one of those scenes that was meant to make your heart break but instead I found myself laughing on the floor because especially that brother had barely any interactions with her at all.
So my overall score of this anime is a 5/10. If you are into the harem genre I would recommend it or either if you want to laugh at a romantic story that doesn't make any sense at all this is the anime for you!
Hopefully this was helpful

I don't know what I was thinking when I decided to watch this anime. But I do know watching this anime was a complete struggle.
Story: The storyline is fairly simple: dad remarries, daughter moves in with 'brothers'-they certainly don't act like brothers-and 'shenanigans' ensue. Predictable and incredibly dull. Although this anime is only twelve episodes long, it felt longer and it was a chore for me to watch. I can't even remember how it ended. 1/10
Art: I am just going to cut to the chase and say that I didn't like the art. While it is more appealing than the actual story, that doesn't really say a lot. The art is boring for lack of a better word. 3/10
Sound: I despised the opening...it was tedious in every way possible. I don't have any words to describe how bad it is. 2/10
Characters: Oh boy, on a scale of 1 to Haruka from Uta no Prince-sama on the irritating metre, the female protagonist is about as annoying and spineless as Haruka is. She barely reacted when her so-called brothers were being perverted and hitting on her. I hoped that she would stand up for herself and tell them to back off. The vast majority of the characters fade into the background. 1/10
Enjoyment: Needless to say I didn't like this anime. At all. It was pure torture. 2/10 read more
So I barely ever write reviews but I just have to share my opinions on this horrible anime.
Brothers conflict is a reverse harem, and probably the worst one out there. I don't really dislike anime that easily, but this anime is the worst anime i've seen. (Ps: Excuse my horrible punctuation)
Alright, to sum it up it's basically about a girl who's always been alone in her childhood (excluding the squirrel) and then her father decides to marry a woman that has 13 sons (like seriously? wtf how could she conceive 13 boys without dying) anyway, she ends up moving to the house where 12 of the sons live. And of course, they all start liking her and fighting over her without reason.
The story was a pile of absolute shit.
it was very cliché (girl moving to a house/school full with boys) but that wasn't even the problem. It's not so much lacking comedy, the comedy is just horrible that it's basically non existant. They even manage to mess up the classic "overreactions" that anime characters usually make. The jokes that are made don't match the voice acting and the characters expressions, and just end up looking extremely awkward. The problems/events that happen during the anime are just plain dumb and make no sense - making the anime super boring.
I admit the art in this anime is not THAT bad, but i've seen alot better. The backgrounds are quite dull and boring.
Okay one of the few things that pissed me off was the fact that the voice of Wataru did NOT match the characters voice AT ALL. It's like placing a cute anime character in a cute shoujo setting but then giving him the voice of fucking godzilla or some shit. Some characters fit their voice actors but some absolutely don't. The squirrels voice was the most annoying out of all, but i'll get into that later.
An character could be casually looking but the voice of it would be excited and laughing, Making the voice acting not match the actual expressions of the characters. I've also seen a few out of sync voice acting (when the character doesn't have their mouth open and moving but the voice is still playing).
Other than character voices I enjoyed the theme song, and the ending song with the dance.
Oh my god, the fucking squirrel. I can not handle that thing, it made me want to jump of a cliff. it was constantly ruining the mood and failed with it's attempts at jokes. Not even a funny type of 'ruining the mood' that usually happens within anime. As for the other characters : they're ok, some don't make fuckin sense in what they dobut basically the entire anime series doesn't make sense anyway. The heroine was really annoying, she wasn't standing up for herself or saying anything back, the anime could've been way better without a cliché annoying heroine.
None, I got so bored watching this anime. It had so many flaws it made me focus more on them then the actual story.
It's a piece of shit, and even I, an reverse harem lover thought this was complete shit.
This anime makes Boku No Pico seem like heaven. read more
Well this anime earn my 2nd worst anime to watch. Reason the story start with a girl that live with 13 brother way older then her and wait the story lead to nothing and if I was the writer of the script I will be a shame to put a anime that have no development of the personage how so ever and to add the love that the brothers show the female lead personage is almost shameful. I just believe that should create a better story that to traumatize the girl in the show. Well to say that the show need better arts as the Female lead she where 90% of the show the school uniform and useless character as Squirrel that is maybe 5% of the show. I do not recommend that show to been watch because even the script that is use make no scent how so ever. I do not recommend the waste of 13 episode to watch this show. read more
Watch out: both of these series are absolute guilty pleasures. The main character is forced to live with several brothers she has never seen before. As always with (reverse) harems, all the boys want to be with her.
- Has triplets
- Step brothers
- Reverse harem
- Brothers Conflict (normal human world) x Diabolik Lovers (supernatural with vampires)
One girl, many boys.
Tsubaki is little similar to boys from Diabolik Lovers.
Both is about girl who must live with new family, and residents fall in love with her .
The main female from both series must live with a new family. She doesn't know what to expect from them. In BroCon, she meets 14 step brothers who are all talented and beautiful. We have a doctor/father-figure, lawyer/home-cook/caretaker, cross-dresser, game developer, hairstylist, Idol, voice actors, pro basketball player, florist/gardener, Monk/hostess, a student who goes to the same school as the heroine (her crush), and finally cute little brother. They all fall in love with her and have accepted her to their family. They will protect her. While in Diabolik Lovers, we have vampires who want her blood and have taken interests in her. They will do anything to her. Talented voice actors can be heard from both series. Both series are adapted from an otome visual novel and categorized as reverse harem.
•both anime are about a girl forced into a situation by their father which leads them surrounded by a bunch of beautiful male testosterone
•both have attractive males with each of their own unique personalities, to rival the others to compete for the 'beauty *passive/useless/quiet* in distress' in their own way
•both are different in the way the surrounding boys 'act' upon the main protagonists feelings, where one is the stand alone same old harem, and the other is an S&M type, appealing to those types of audiences
•they are similar in the bunch of beautiful handsome males surrounding a timid and standoffish girl, but the audience factor is different, you might like one if you like the other, but it depends.
- About a girl got into situation because of her father.
- Step Brothers.
- Has Triplets.
- Similarities Character:
Brothers Conflict (Normal HUMAN world) x Diabolik Lovers (Supernatural with VAMPIRES), adapted from an Otome Visual Novel with Shoujo and Reverse Harem.
Female protagonist transferring into a giant mansion with a bunch of seductive - and sadistic - guys who are brothers. One is an unrequited sibling-love while the other is a dark shoujo romance. Both have a slow plot and zero character development though both are interesting shoujo shows.
Both anime series have so many similarities, it's unbelievable.
Of course, both series are reverse harems. Involving a girl - who's sweet personality is overdone and boring, making the brothers actually the most interesting characters in both series. Each episode brings out the same sort of outcome - another brother makes some sort of move on the uninteresting girls. Diabolik Lovers is more to suck the girl's blood. Brothers Conflict, more trying to win her heart. Either way, it's not all that exciting.
Eventually there is some lame "plot twist" although there really isn't a plot in either of them to begin with, but I guess there isn't much to complain about considering it really makes no difference.
But on a serious note - if you've "enjoyed" one of these, then you'll enjoy the other. Both these series are here purely for entertainment, we're here for the humour of it all - not for the plot.
Both are full of hot guys with different personality that will makes all of you fangirls go "kyaa"
Both have an innocent girl that out of place.
Both girl got into the situation because of her father.
Both are Shoujo genre anime.
-guy's after 1 girl
Both have a young girl surrounded by many men who has to live near them. Every boy has a different personality and the two series have the same general feeling with a quiet female protagonist.
Both females are similar in which they are hard-working at achieving their goals, well-mannered and likeable. Oh and that they surrounded by men in which they show harboring feelings (some more than others). Both ladies have more introverted or passive qualities as well.
Uta Pri - plot is influenced by music and fame
Brothers Conflict - focuses more on family relations and fits into the slice-of-life category
Very similar character tropes. Overall story is similar too: Girl picks between 6 idols vs girl picks between 13 brothers. Mutual VAs: Kaname/Ren, Tsubaki/Masato, Azusa/Cecil. If you enjoy one, you will enjoy the other.
☒ Reverse Harem with hot men
☒ Based off an otome game
☒ "Timid" heroine (imo, sorry ^^)
☒ Did I mention the hot men?
Very similar reverse harem setup with awesome guys you wish were real! If you liked Uta no Prince sama, you'll like Brothers Conflict!
In brothers conflict and in uta no prince sama there is one girl surrounded by guys who all want her. But in brothers conflict all the guys be her ''brothers'' after the marriage of their parents and in uta no prince sama the guys are in the same school. If you love reverse harem (as i do) this anime would be great.
-Both are reverse harem, meaning guys fight for the girl's affection.
-The guys in both animes are super handsome!
-The girls in both animes are stunned by the moves the guys make on them.
-The girls ignore the guys' advances.
-The guys all end up falling in love with the girl.
The main heroine from both series have similar personality. Both are surrounded by good looking guys who have fallen in love with her. Also they have a partner who helps them out when she needs it. They protect her and give her advice. Both series are based on a reverse harem visual novel.
Both of them are adaptations from visual novels. Both of the heroines have no personality at all and have all the guys around them.
They both involve a girl who is surrounded by super hot guys and the girl is pathetic(no offence) and she has problems and is very quiet and mostly just talks to herself. They are very similiar, when you watch, you will know what i mean!!
-Both main characters are surrounded by a lot of gorgeous guys
-Both main characters have a sidekick that guide them (Ema-Juli) (Heroine-Orion)
-Includes some tense romantic stuff
-Unfortunately, both female characters are quiet/shy, usually thinks to themselves or chats with their sidekick
-Based on an otome game
-REVERSE HAREM =w= lol
Girls have kind of the same personality, both are loved by the guys around them, every guy gets his own episode.
They both have a relatively quiet and emotionless heroine who is surrounded by bishies. Expect romantic scenes between the heroine and each of the guys. The heroines both seem to have "guardian angels" that support them.
Both anime are reverse harem
Both female protagonists are dense in love, and have difficulties getting along with the male characters. Also finding out who they really love. Yet Yui seems to be more braver and smarter than most female characters in reverse harem.
Both anime are romance and filled with fan service for fangirls.
The male characters in both anime sang the endings
If you loved Brothers conflict, then you are also gotta love this ;D Just saying
-> They are both reverse harem
-> All the boys are beautiful
-> They all live together (to some extent)
But, in my opinion, Kamigami is a lot better since there is an actual plot to the show. Also, unlike Ema, the protagonist actually reacts to the advances she gets.
-both anime have handsome male characters
The same situation were the main characters are up against too many members of their harem and such conflict is imminent, the dissimilarities: one is just a single episode OVA while the other is a full 13 episode series.
•both anime are different in the type of format they are, where one is an ongoing series, where the other is just a quick OVA
•both roughly start off the same, where the main protagonist is thrown into this new family where they have so many new siblings and they are all of the opposite sex to them.
•both anime are pretty easily readable as in what the future expects as the audience watches the anime, where all the siblings start to 'feel' something for the main protagonist, either it be mutual respect, just plain friendly, or incestual love develops which is common from these types of anime.
•both contain all the different types of personalities there are on each of the siblings, where it be, overconfident, shy, tsundere, bashful, handsome, well endowed, bustful, etc, they show all the types where the audience can imagine the ones they fall for as the story progresses
•they are similar where the protagonist joins a new family full of opposite sex siblings and they start to grow feelings for them, you probably might like one, if you like the other, but the audiences for each of the anime are mainly different.
Both these series have similar harem and incest themes involved between one main character and a lot of siblings. The difference is that one is a reverse harem while the other is the usual harem.
Both have the same 1 to many harem competitions for the MC, except one is a reverse harem while the other is the usual guy to girls kind of harem
Both series involve a young girl suddenly thrust into a world full of wealthy young men. Both are reverse harems with wacky antics and a crazy cast, however Brothers Conflict takes itself seriously whereas Ouran is purely comedic.
same idea of how there is one girl surrounded by amazing or cool guys
Both are reverse harem/male harem and are cheesy, but in a way that will make you smile. Both have identical twins (well, technically in Brothers Conflict they are triplets but two of them are identical). Brothers Conflict focuses more on romance while Ouran Koukou Host Club has more comedy. BOTH HAVE CROSS DRESSERS!!! :)
