Set in modern day London, the story takes place in a world where "Shadows" are born from human fear and anxiety. A young girl arrives to study abroad, only to be caught in a bizarre incident as she enters university. In a city with no acquaintances, the helpless girl wanders into "Café Forbidden," a mysterious café that exclusively opens at midnight. She meets an assortment of handsome men employed at the café, where guardians who protect the boundary between humans and shadow convene.

Although I wish to give Phantom in the Twilight credit for giving the main character a remarkably different personality and agency compared to any other reverse-harem type anime that's come out in the few recent years, it really is lacking essentially in the story and character building departments, which is why it can't be anything but a 7 at most.

The main characters Ton and Sinyao are Chinese and going to university, which from a veteran reverse-harem watcher's viewpoint is already a big difference and affects the narrative. The men are pretty archetypal; a tsundere vampire, a rowdy werewolf, a MC-adoring shota... Even though they ...

Mixed Feelings
This is a review of the anime only. I have not read the manga.

For an otome adaptation, this one wasn't half bad. At least I didn't loathe the female lead. A little more romance would have been nice but I prefer the lack thereof to the forced romance in many otome.

What I liked about it:

1. The female lead was strong in her own right and not whiny and annoying.
2. The male characters were believable and funny.
3. The story was intriguing if shallow.

I have never written a review before so bear with me if this won't be good, but this was such a pain to watch. You can watch this If you want, but I don't recommend.
I watched a lot of reverse harem but this one is one of the worst

First of all the anime seemed promising at first, but turned into a huge disappointment for me:

-lack of character development

-too much unnecessary dramatizing

- Not much and awful romance
