Summary: Shuffle! Memories
Alternative version: Shuffle! Prologue
Characters & Voice Actors
Shuffle! is a classic Supernatural, Harem, Romance, Comedy, Drama that feels fairly average to begin with but it’s full of surprises as you go on. My overall score may be somewhat biased but this show is just truly amazing. ^_^
The story is just your basic harem anime as it follows a male protagonist (Rin Tsuchimi) an average high school boy who lives with his childhood friend Kaede (girl). Of course to make this a harem there are more girls included into the mix (5 in total) and not to forget the all important supernatural element to the show, by adding gods and demons to the plot. As the series begins it is your typical Rom/Com with plenty of cute and hilarious moments and heaps of casual fanservice. It is until halfway into the series that the drama kicks in, bringing forth a great deal of heartfelt moments, which will get most viewers all teary eyed and plenty of character developments.
The characters themselves are compelling and fun to watch as they all have something unique about them, including the guys. It’s true that the set-up for the girls is pretty clichéd (childhood friend, eccentric, tsundere, shy girl, loli) but they all bring something special to the story. What’s more amazing is that the male protagonist also brings a great deal to the story, including deep-rooted jealously that all us guys feel whilst watching the series.
The animation quality for Shuffle! was somewhat unique, with its own style and having subtle differences with similar anime. This allows the animation aspect of the show to excel amongst others; with amazing environments, well animated character expressions/emotions and most importantly the superb character designs. One thing I noticed is how most of the characters wear around 5-10 different outfits throughout the series, which is rarely seen in your average harem. It would be perfect but there were instances when the quality of the animation degraded.
On another note the music for the series was great and went well with the mood of the situations (comedy & drama), nevertheless it became somewhat repetitive. At least there were some really good insert songs.
Overall Shuffle! is the epitome of what a harem romance anime should be; one guy + cute girls = a variety of romantic outcomes. The best thing about the show would have to be the characters because they are all developed incredibly well and their actions aren’t always questionable, seeing how it suits their personality. And because the male protagonist isn’t a worthless guy, there are numerous romances and a number of possibilities. The series managed to end well without relying on too many clichés. So in the end this is a classic series that most romance anime fans would enjoy.

Demons, Gods & Humans. Five beautiful Girls & One Guy. The story of 6 lives, filled with jealousy & hope as well as with hope & joy.
At first I was hesitating to watch this series but it provided a lot of fun for me. The story didn't become boring either due to the fact that you get to know more and more of everyone's personality, character and history.
:: Story ::
When I read about this series and noticed that Gods and Demons play a roll in such a rather typical human environment like school life, I was doubting if I would enjoy watching it. But I did. And that's because the story line is not just a straight line from the beginning to the end. There were moments I was surprised about, moments I laughed my butt off, and moments I couldn't really believe what I saw and heard. If you aren't too biased about the scheme you will enjoy the story, I'm sure. It's simply not an action packed anime. Rather a calm and funny one. Yet, you might find yourself surprised sometimes - just like I did.
~8 out of 10~
:: Animation ::
It's simply beautiful. The Characters, the environment, little details like water and leaves look great as well. Very nice art.
~9 out of 10~
:: Sound ::
Haha~. Certain Character's ways of speaking still put a smile on my face. There's not much to say about sound - I didn't have the impression that there was anything that sounded not like it's supposed to.
~8 out of 10~
:: Character ::
Each Character is different. They are all beautiful and have their ups and downs.
~9 out of 10~
:: Enjoyment ::
I would have dropped it if I didn't enjoy it. But instead, I enjoyed every single episode and was always looking forward to watching the next one. This anime will get a special place in my collection - but maybe that's just because I'm into these kind of shows.
~9 out of 10~
:: Overall ::
As I said, this anime is special to me. I'm really glad I decided to watch it and will surely check out the 'sequel' -"Shuffle! Memories"- as well.

*I know it's a rather short review, but it's also my first one so bear with me. I'll do my best to write better ones in the future.* read more
Both are romance harem anime with a guy and five girls and both have a school setting. The main male characters are both similar as well. Shuffle! is more fantasy compared to Clannad's mostly realistic story, with the exception of one mostly supernatural arc.
A guy is surrounded by girls and helps them out with their problems. Also, they both have romance and are school related.
Both have lots of girls that like the protagonist
Shuffle! and Clannad are quite similar school anime.
Similar characters, harem style, drama and comedy parts
If you didn't like the girl Rin/Tomoya choose then watch Clannad/Shuffle!
Because it has the same concept and feeling in the story.
same school life story, 3-4 girls fall in love with 1 guy, and he has to choose one,but the chosen one has a weak body,
although Clannad covers more because of its sequal
-Both animes's setting/story goes by an omnibus format, and have small arcs for each heroine that doesn't diverge from the central plot of the story (with the setting intact)
So similar. The whole harem thing, high school thing and even the girls chosen had similarities. Also both of the main characters best friends were the same! Overall, despite the more supernatural and ecchi Shuffle, these to are really, really similar.
if u watched clannad 1st like i did, then watching this anime will remind you of it, the style and excution of shuffle is virtually exactly the same.
espically around episode 13, when things turn serious.
-Each girl receives her own arc
-Drama, romance, comedy, bromance, school life, all along with supernatural tones
Both start out as a slice of life harem comedy with magical undertone but as the series goes on it takes on dramatic elements.
The story type is very similar to one another. They are both harems.
Just like Shuffle! but better and more emotional
When you like drama then this i something you cant miss.
i have watched both of these and it made my cry a couple of times.
The storyline is awesome, with some twists and turn to keep you interested through the whole serie.
in both series a lot of female characters fall in love with the main male protagonist
I has the basic Harem genre. The main character has to choose between three girl in which eventually he will have to pick the girl he feels the most for and eventually start a life
they are bout loving anime with alot of drama, shuffle tho has some super powers involved, where clannad is more slice of life
The way both anime start off driven mainly by humour and go onto become emotionally charged is very similar. Both main characters help the female cast grow and develop. Clannad is better and deeper, especially when you include the afterstory. So if you liked Shuffle, I reckon you'll love Clannad. If you found Clannad too emotional, and didn't like the family elements of the show, want something which focuses more on romance, and like cartoon boobs, then Shuffle's definitely for you.
They both have girls in love with you guy, but school days are REALLY psychological and requires strong nerves (you'd see why ;) )
Another harem style anime, with a little drama, but much more lighthearted overall. It also incorporates some interesting twists and turns in the plot, but it does not generally leave you sick to your stomach like school days does. I enjoyed both school days and shuffle, and they are both excellent anime.
A bunch of girls like one guy. However, the main character in shuffle! has a different personality than the main male lead in School Days (aka the shuffle! guy is actually sincere). Also, they both get pretty serious towards the end. School Days more so.
What Shuffle has is a great story intertwined through a great plot, but if you think Kaede should have done more for her man, then School Days answers your cries.
both have great storiees and harem.
Both School Days and Shuffle! are two of the better harems out there, in my opinion. Both series start off light, cutesy, and happy, but have darker elements that surface later on in the series. Both School Days and Shuffle! also feature similar character types: yanderes (Kotonoha and Kaede), the loud and energetic type (Sekai and Asa), the quiet girl (Setsuna and Primula), et cetera. I think both are very enjoyable series and fun to watch.
-Both animes focuses very deeply into the story that involves love triangles and one-sided love as well as problems surrounding it.
Another harem style anime where a friendly argument over the love of one man turns slowly in a physically harmful war. In both, a girl turns mentally unstable. Both start off slow but towards the end leaves you in shock.
Both have a main character that can't decide between many girls he can choose from (indecision!). Both take a dark tone mid series when problems begin to arise. Shuffle! has a more overall light mood with some funny moments but can get heavy at times, whereas School Days tends to be much darker altogether. Both are good examples of how indecision can lead to serious problems, especially when it envolves human relationships. Also both plots occur mostly in High School featuring students. They have very good plots and have a lot of twists and turns. However, these shows are definitely *not* for the weak of heart.
Both have yandere: Keade and Kotonoha. "nuff said
These both animes are taking place in school environment. I think that Shuffle is more fun-based anime, while School Days is more serious about situation. Both of main characters are surrounded by girls from everywhere. I must say that Rin from Shuffle is a guy with a character and heart, while Itou from School Days is somehow total bitch.
Althrough, I really enjoyed both of these animes as they have lot in common (at least first halves of them do). When I first saw Asa, I've instantly imagined Sekai from SD. You'll see why. :)
The last 6 episode of Shuffle remind me of School Day. And on top of that both series are highschool harem, romacne & drama. If you enjoyed School Day then you might like Shuffle however if you like Shuffle you might not 100% enjoy School day
