Shuffle! , it's an anime-based of the well acclaimed visual novel of the same name. Although the anime scenes can be seen as directly recycled but the animation is not in this case.

Now here we go with me giving you my honest opinion about the 'story' footage shown in the Shuffle! Prologue.

Mixed Feelings
This 8 minute episode may be funny, but it's not that great. The original series is much better. I think some of these clips are apparently visual novel exclusive, but they are not necessary scenes. Everything here was kind of just randomly thrown together like a slide show.

It's possible that you can easily enjoy this like I did, but don't expect much. A 5/10 is reasonable here. If you're a shuffle fan, give this a shot and just have some quick fun. If you're not a fan of shuffle, you probably wouldn't be looking at this anyway. ...
