In the near future when technology has significantly advanced, a famous AI TV fortune teller seemingly foresees high school student Asahi Kashiwagi's day with pinpoint accuracy. On his way to school, he encounters Aoi Izumisawa, Bai Mongfa, Karin Istel, Amelia Irving, and Ilya Ilyukhin. Despite meeting them for the first time, Asahi suddenly receives love confessions from all of them at the end of the same day, perfectly aligning with the fortune teller's prediction.

As if that was not enough, Asahi soon learns that these five individuals are actually candidates to become his bride, and they have been invited by his father to live at Asahi's home. Left with no other choice, he reluctantly allows them to stay, resulting in a bawdy turn of events that brightens up his average high school life.

However, as Asahi spends more time with them, forgotten memories gradually resurface. While uncovering the hidden truth, Asahi begins to believe that his fate with these potential partners might be more than just mere coincidence.

Renai flops came out of nowhere and became one of my fave shows of Fall 2022. While the first half follows the usual path of a generic fan-service harem rom com, it becomes something more substantive in the second half and truly won me over.

If you’re someone with a short fuse and low tolerance for non-sense, I can tell you right now Renai Flops won’t be for you. Its first episodes are intentionally trope-y and very generic. But if you’re too quick to drop the show, you’ll miss out on seeing how the show actually deconstructs some of these generic tropes. While the first few ...

Ahhh another rom-com type show for me to watch and review… How bad could this show be? Renai Flops sure made my heart flop. Not in a good way… for at least the first 6 episodes. We’ll get to that way later…

Before we begin, let me backtrack to the beginning… the very very eye stretching beginning… Renai Flops (at least the first half) is what you get when you put together all the possible rom-com tropes into one show and press copy and paste 1000 times. True Insanity… For example the guy (let’s call him Steve) “falls” down a set of stairs only to “accidentally” ...

I'm not mad, just disappointed.

I will give it this, this show certainly knows its marketing. First, it introduces itself as so generic and cliche a harem anime that people will actually end up checking it out if the studio is really going to invest an original anime on this. Then halfway through it brings in the plot twist so that a new set of viewers will be released into the wild, grabbing passing people, shaking them and screaming, "Guys don't give up, this changes everything!"

But what matters in the end is the entire product. Does this show feel complete in its story and characters, and ...
