On his way to school, Junichi Nagase saves a girl from danger. Later, due to a misunderstanding, he kisses her. Shocked and disgusted, and without understanding what just happened or why, she screams at him and tells him to "just die!" As it turns out, the girl, Yuuhi Katagiri, is a new transfer student and, much to the surprise of Junichi and his younger sister Minato, their father arranged for Yuuhi to be Junichi's future wife! Of course, getting married to "that perverted idiot" is the absolute last thing Yuuhi wants! Junichi's crazy school life with his tsundere bride-apparent has begun!

(At Studio TNK)

Director [clapping his hands]: Okay, people. The next anime we're going to produce is Akane-iro ni somaru saka. Now, before we start production, I want everyone to play the visual novel and list out every event and trope that you believe should be included into the anime version. You have one week to complete this game.

[One Week Later]

Director [looking around the room]: Alright. I want everyone to hand in their lists. [Everyone begins to pass their list to the director.] Okay, thank you. Now, here’s what will happen. A few assistants and I will now tally up the tropes that read more

Akane-iro is something that i found hard to keep watchig but i always complete what i start.

The story for this is mediocre, there's not much to say than the MC Junichi meets a girl who didn't know he was going to marry her and because he kissed her by a misunderstanding, now she hates him and that goes on almost 11 episodes and the ending is bad.

Art & Animation
The art was good, there are better works out there but it was good.

The voice acting cast saved this from having a worst score but it wasn't amazing, looking at who the seiyuus are it should have read more

Seriously, is it that bad to find this show entertaining? One can argue this is a typical slice of life, school, harem anime with typical character types and predictable story and you would not be far off. But, if you don't LIKE watching things like this, why are you watching it in the first place? Akane-iro is geared to the 'veteran' otaku who love specific voice actors or character types, or enjoy when different flags get triggered (like hot springs, school festivals, or costume changes) aka: fanservice. You can only watch so many different slice of life harem comedy titles to realize if you read more

Anime: D.C.: Da Capo
When I watched this I had strong feeling of Dejavu. Both the main heroes' name are Ju nichi as well. The animation quality was nicely done for both as well. Although some different in character design the characters from Akane-Iro give an oddly familiar feeling to that of Da Capo's cast as well, especially Minato (*cough* Nemu *cough*).

Anime: Shuffle!
Similar plot, two girls have to marry an ordinary boy, but in Shuffle one of the girls is the princess from heaven and the other is the princess from hell.

Anime: Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun
Similar plot...
A succubus girl who is afraid of men is forced to live with a boy.
Many things in Akane-iro remind of Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun (especially the parents in Akane-iro and the brother/sister in G-sama N-kun)

Anime: Canvas 2: Niji-iro no Sketch
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.

Anime: Mashiro-iro Symphony: The Color of Lovers
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.
