Yuuhi Katagiri is not your average girl – she's the treasured daughter of the Katagiri family. She's generally kept under strict supervision, but one day ends up walking home from school on her own. This proves to be instant trouble when a group of boys start harassing her. Junichi Nagase, who was on his way home from a convenience store, sees the troubled Yuuhi and comes to her rescue. One of the boys recognized Junichi as the famed "Geno Killer" and they dash off. Yuuhi thanks Junichi and when she asked for his name, he just waves and leaves. Of course, he regrets trying to act cool in front of the beautiful girl right away, wishing he asked her name.

The following day, a transfer student joins Junichi's class – it's Yuuhi! She calls Junichi out as the "Geno Killer", the only name she remembers him by, and rumors about the two spread quickly. Matters are made worse when Junichi kisses Yuuhi due to a misunderstanding. And on top of all that, it turns out that Junichi is Yuuhi's fiancé!

Yuuhi doesn't see Junichi as someone worthy. But, she could not go against her father's wishes. The only thing that Yuuhi can do is live with Junichi in the house he shares with his little sister Minato, and prove that Junichi is not worthy to be her husband. Will she succeed in proving his unworthiness, or will she fall in love on the way?

Akaneiro ni Somaru Saka (2008)


An unexpected meeting with a girl, an unexpected engagement and living together is the gist. It is a form of Harem that has a bit more refined in that the girls are not all immediately over the guy with crazy actions of love, but they are more a group of friends that show interest and respect each other for the most part vibe. Depending on whether it is the game, Manga or Anime they have different endings. Some vary between the sister being blood-related and some not so that changes endings around. There is a bit of a Yosuga no Sora ...

Mixed Feelings
Akane iro ni somaru saka is an harem visual novel based anime. I like this kind of animations, but if you don't like them or you're looking for a good anime, this is not what are you looking for.
Let's see:

Story (4/10):
The plot is random and it's not deep at all. The side story about the protagonist's parents has no sense, it's an attempt to make deeper the plot, but is just filler.
However, for an harem anime, it's ok.

Art (6/10):
This anime was released in 2008, the art is fine for that time.

it was a decent anime until minato ruined it. the fact that he chose his sister is stupid. he didnt do anything wrong and yet he was in the wrong. the ending is so disappointing i cant believe that i spent hours of my summer vacation watching this absolute garbage. watching this was like watching a series and you wait months for the ending and it being a rick roll. for those who are considering watching this anime i wont tell you not to. this is honestly the worst anime i have ever seen watching this anime was lethal wait no atrocious
