Kazuya Kagami never goes anywhere without the precious "Sakura Obi" his mother gave him. One day a beautiful, kimono-clad girl named Kiriha appeared before him. Kiriha naturally began to live with Kazuya in his room. Then there's Chisato, Kazuya's childhood friend with glasses and a ponytail, who meddles in his affairs. Soon there's also an overprotective older sister who seems to want to take baths with him. Jumble in a huge-chested priestess, a good-looking sorceress named Kokuyoura, beautiful women, and hot girls, and Kazuya's happy, embarrassing, confusing life begins…
This show really balances on mediocrity. I know people who enjoy this but I'm just not feeling it, let me explain. Or try.
Meet male character. Male is easily flustered. Male accidentally gropes woman. Male has tons of women who find interest in him. Male wakes up with VIOLENT MAGIC FEMALE #7281 in bed. Male freaks out. VIOLENT MAGIC FEMALE #7281 attacks male. I'd call her a tsundere but she hasn't said the standard legal amount of "baka" for her to count so I guess she's a revolution in character design. She doesn't wear panties. There's a plot by the way. Blah, blah blah. Ghosts. Done.
This show is also revolutionary in the sense that there's a female character who gets just as flustered and overreacts in just about the same way as main male character. She hits people constantly with a paper fan because slapstick is funny. That was the best part of the show I think. It was all a blur.
The animation quality is pretty good with plenty of movement and expression. It's the best part. The music can also stand out at times, which is nice. But the characters are so cliché and empty that it's hard to care about any of this. Sure there's action, sure there's all the girls you could ever want. All sorts of flavors of woman show up. Bazinga.
Did I mention the main character is edging on shota territory?
This show is nothing. It's average. You've seen everything in this before and probably better too. It's not that bad, but it's not good either. MAL says 5 is average so that's what it gets. The animation is the best part so if you just want to see some flashy poofs and bangs then here you go. There's also the bog standard shoddy CG though so you'll have to ignore that but honestly if you watch enough seasonal anime you've probably gotten well used to seeing all sorts of meh and garbage CG. At least it's not Berserk (2016/2017). Am I really in the universe where a 5 out of 10 show is better than a Berserk adaption? Help me.
Did I feel anything watching this show? Any human emotion? Maybe. I don't remember. I just watched this show and I've already forgotten all sorts of details. What were the character's names again? I think the main character made a ghost go away by telling her that she should come over some time. She got horny and the ghost disappeared. Where am I? Did I mention there's some crow lady with big ol' baps? That'll go over good on Danbooru. Boing. Honestly take away the sex "appeal" and this feels like a show for little kids. Did I mention the part in the OP where female rasengan gropes the male in the gonads? Is immaturity a genre?
Do I sound bored? Am I rambling? That's what happens when you try to put effort into reviewing something that is decidedly average at best. You might like it. Give me some alcohol and I think I'd like it too. And it wouldn't be that much alcohol too. There's much worse than this show. There really is. But it's so nothing. Come to look at the animation and then stay for some reason I don't know. There were jokes. Maybe you'll laugh, I didn't. I love comedy anime too. Give it a shot, or not. I recommend it maybe. Maybe I'm biased against this show I never heard about until this morning. Everyone seems to enjoy it more than me except for the few that didn't. 5/10
So far into the show, I'm getting vibes similar to that of Omamori Himari and other animes that reference mystical/domestic being living together, the show dance on cliches and takes the dialogue a bit further.
Some scenes where you expect a cliche to happen, the show will disarm you by self deprecating and rewarding you with a little bit of fanservice, it looks interesting and it's pretty funny so far, the main character is a bit of a dense one but the scenes between the main duo are hilarious, give this show a try.
It's not over the top, it's funny and down to earth and it's
starting to pick up, don't let the art style and the cover fool you, it's definitely a comedy and it's definitely ecchi
As I was watching this anime something was really bugging me about the tone and vibe of the show. Then about 4 episodes in it hit me. The show is not bad, but the show is not great either, in fact, what was bugging me was the peculiar sensation that the show was so run-of-the-mill, so median, so perfectly average that I couldn't honestly bring myself to complain without feeling a sense of guilt about the fact I was ragging on a show that really hasn't done anything wrong.
The "story" actually begins to become somewhat interesting 4-5 episodes in, which is a good thing for
what is otherwise an entirely fan service based show. I'd have given up on the show in fact if it wasn't for the fact the jokes were so unabashed. Evolving from the boring and tired meta of "tease", "euphemism" and "sexual connotation" to outright, adult horseplay. At the very least i found this refreshing despite being blatantly perverted. Would you watch this show for its story? Probably not. It's just a nice thing to have supporting the juicy antics.
The animation is awkwardly all over the place. Going from "basic as fuck" to enticingly graphic (when it knows it needs to pull out some aesthetic stops during its service scenes). The thing that really lets the show down though is its background art. This is also in reference to my initial paragraph, everything feels so geometric and clean and it took me a while to figure out why that was so weird and it's because such an empty environment is obviously sterile. It doesn't feel like anyone lives there, it quite literally looks like a "set" for a play.
It's too early to really discuss the characters on account of the fact they haven't been properly developed. We're learning about the MC's heritage and the role he will play in the narrative, the justification for his importance, but in general the MC is about has hollow and husk like as you'd expect in order to get as many people projecting onto him as easily as possible. The word we're looking for here is "generic". This is not a sign of a quality narrative, but a reinforcement of the service gimmick that ultimately sells the show.
So is the show worth watching? Well the humour isn't bad, if not somewhat thin and expectedly cliché in places. But other than that, if you're a novice anime watcher you'll find this show will leave a hell of a lot to be desired. A newbie will get a lot more enjoyment from the show, but then at the same time there are so many better shows waiting to be watched for a newbie. So I struggle to find a justification to recommend this besides the fact the sexual humour refreshingly doesn't beat around the bush.
Watch if you'red bored or desperate and you wont be too disappointed. It's not bad. But it also isn't good.
