Shuffle while at first seems like an early two thousands harem fan service show which it kind of is deviated from others to me at least because of the sound design and music the music that plays throughout the episodes reminds me of majula in dark souls 2 it's a welcoming sound that is also somewhat sinister like something made by puppet combo which was enough to raise this show from a 6 to a 8 in my opinion.

The jealousy, possessiveness, naivety, and of course the classic guy who is clueless as never dated before.

It almost felt like several people were writing the anime, each trying to sabotage the other's work and hopeful outcome. We have multi personalities, craziness, an ...
