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 read more

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.

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 read more

Originality in harem anime is an oxymoron. It simply doesn't exist anymore nor will it ever exist again. Shuffle! is the same, but despite all odds, it manages to put a few chinks in the chain of mediocrity with some suprirsing twists.

Unfortunately for potential viewers, Shuffle's raison d'etre won't make it's presence known until a little more than halfway into the series. Until then, enjoy a plauge of mindless expositional filler, all for the sake of seeing under every girl's skirt. Yes, even the loli's. This curse comes with a gift though in that the series progresses with an ambiguous nature toward who our hapless read more

I can't begin to explain how much disliked this anime. I guess It's your typical passive male character (who is beyond daft) surrounded by senseless females that throw themselves at him for ridiculous (and quite unimportant) reasons. It drove me nuts.

I kept watching this anime because my friend insisted 'it gets better!'. I watched until the end ... and lets just say that the ending pretty much just spirals down into the most outrageous and pathetic ending i've ever seen.

The good:
- Primula is an adorable character
- The character design was pretty and the animation good.

I'm sorry there's nothing else good read more

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.

As in Shuffle!, there is a wide variation of characters. The story is based on magic, similar to Shuffle!'s main plot. There is also quite a resemblance between character personalities. I also recommend Da Capo: Second Season.

Both simular in ways where Rin in (Shuffle!) & Yuuichi (Kanon) recieve alot of attention from the main female characters and have a good comedy side! 
reportRecommended by FiiFO
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. 
reportRecommended by shadowraze
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. 
reportRecommended by Lymus
-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)
