This anime is the inverted harem xD Finally Anne confirmed that all of them have real feelings for her hahaha what a harem they are building xD

I wonder if Katarina will realize till the end of the season that there is no more a risc for a doom flag, at least from her friends. Hope there will be a next season so that i can see Katarina's face when she realizes that everyone loves her lmao

Anne's background story was really great, never expected them to deliver this.

It was really nice to have some more screen time for Anne.

I feel bad for everyone at the end. RIP.

Hamefura is the only anime that makes me cry in the first half, and laugh out loud in the second half! Loved the episode! xD

OOH, having some screentime for Anne, the unrecognized maid, servant and friend to Bakarina...meanwhile the harem-maker continues her endeavours, whilst confirming the desires of all's loves towards Catarina.

A slumber party amongst the clique of princes and really sounds very foreign, but since it's an activity to get to know each other better...I mean, sure, the hell why not?

Understanding Anne's backstory's awful that the noble life really took a toll on her physical and mental being, but with Katarina she'd learn to let go of her past, protect her from being "a marriage tool" and give her the wings of freedom. *senses another harem-making in the process* Good intentions gone right, that's for sure.

Once again, ANOTHER letter from Bakarina to fiance Prince Geordo...but just as with the last, it always ends up delivering and reciprocating wrong feelings (of getting everyone onboard), and to help her out in gardening...WHAAAA HAHA LOLS...forever so oblivious.

And finally...getting to the long-drawn arc, "The Footsteps of Destruction" for the final quarter of the show! Can't wait to see how this'll happen next week.

Would have loved to see Katarina going to the girls night with that eggplant pajama xD

Well, was expecting more harem shenanigans with Anne but got another tragic backstory with extremely wholesome conclusion at the end. Honestly, it was like finding gold instead of silver. Totally loved it.

Overall, another good episode though Anne saying she prefers to stay forever by Katarina's side instead of getting married and forming a family was still a bit sad to know. For me at least.

The filler episodes had me losing hope for a bit, but Bakarina and her beautiful heart has won me all over again, just as it has everyone else.

This was by far and away my favorite episode yet.

But I've got to say, I am really starting to worry she may actually be mentally challenged, no wonder the prince still considered her to be scarred.

I like this episode! Anne is like a mother to Katarina, she basically witnessed everything that happened in Katarina's life. This episode shows why Katarina is so popular with a certain group of people, it's primarily because of her kindness. However, how kind Katarina can be, there are other people who still hates her. Apparently, it was reversed; because she's now the kind Katarina, she's now the one being attacked.

Oh boy, another episode where the plot barely moves forward. Character development is important, and the growth for the maid, Anne, was done well. It made a background character likeable and gave her an identity. The problem I have is that it was done at the expense of developing the relationship between Katarina and the Harem members.

The first part of the episode was essential a recap of everyone who loves Katarina. It was entirely useless, we already know this. Stop shoving it in our faces and actually move the relationships forward. The last part with Geordo is what I want to see more of, show the characters have changed after being with Katarina. Also it seems like Sophia sees Katarina as more of a friend than partner.

I really couldn't care less if this episode was another filler or not, since this episode was really good.

The main focus was on Katarina's personal maid, Anne. From her position, she can easily tell just how popular Katarina is and how much everyone, and I do mean EVERYONE, loves her.

I was concerned after seeing Anne's arm which showed an old injury and her backstory shed light on that. Not only did she lose her mother to a fire, which explains her injury on her arm, but her father only saw her as nothing more than a tool.

Anne was accepted into the Claes family as a maid and looked over Katarina, but things only started to change after Katarina's accident. Not only did Katarina really care and had fun with Anne, but she came to her defence when Anne's father turned up years later, wanting to marry Anne off, while still calling her "damaged goods".

This scene was excellent, as it showed just how much Anne really cares for Katarina. When she says that she'll follow Katarina wherever she goes, you can easily tell that Anne means what she says. =D

The rest of the episode was fun, too, with the pyjama party for the girls throwing out some funny moments, mainly from Mary as usual, and Geordo getting duped into helping out Katarina in her vegetable gardens, along with everyone else. All of them even got the same present as well, which was amusing. XD

However, if the post-credit scene is anything to go by, I think the fun times time be put on hold for now. Those jealous hags really have it out for Katarina, so I do look forward to seeing what happens next.

Loved this episode. It was nice to see the harem from the eyes of someone unrelated to the plot and more of Catarina's shonen-protagonist-personality influence.
I died laughing but the absolute win for me was when Mary said she wants to be reborn as a man of higher social status than Geordo and when Sofia asked what would Catarina like to do with her loved one (so she could inform her brother lol).
Poor Geordo at the end! And also it seems that the villainess destiny is coming to haunt Catarina.

Still only halfway through the episode but finally an episode that follows the light novel.

Edit* Finished the episode (and another anime) lol

But this was by far the most enjoyable episode for me. All the content was from the light novels.

Although this episode wasn't as funny as the prior ones, I loved Anne's backstory. Bakarina may be a dumbass but she's such a kind and compassionate person. Lovely seeing the gang get together again. Mary is still best suitor.

I did not really like this episode, we had no real new things (we don't care about Anne...) aside of the confirmation we have a gigantic harem & that Mary's plan are terrific !

In my opinion an episode that they could have ditched, and that could have began with the outro of this episode.

It was good to learn about Anne backstory and it was sad. Nice to know that Katarina was there for her.

Poor Geordo. He wasn't the only one that was sent a letter.

That ending tho... she must have raised a flag.

The ending, so finally the plot is going back to its rails, right?

Hope it doesnt be rushed in these 3 last episodes. This show have GREAT potential about comedic romance, comedic intrigues, and why not a touch of comedic drama?

But it is stuck in the same jokes. The chances of a second season are becoming small as the size of coronavirus...

I love this Harem, but the problem with a Harem story is that in the end they only have to choose one. I mean, it’s the sad reality, you won’t be able to keep everyone.

To be fair you are talking about "old" harems, now there is more and more harem stories with polygamy relationships like Arifureta, Hachi-nan tte are a few examples of this.

Even Mother's basement in his early review thinks that all characters in this harem fit perfectly/enough that they all could live togered with Bakarina.

For someone who send his own daughter to the trash and after some years forcing her for marriage... is he for real?? Gladly Catarina was there for Ann and defended her till the end. That's a beautiful relashionship <3 Catarina's a good girl!

Omg! The boy's are hopeless without Catarina around XD I was very surprised to hear Keith saying he doesn't know how to bring conversation without her. Cute!

Nice episode! The non-friendly girls are ready to attack her by exposing her... I wonder what they'll up to >_>;

Not that I don't think meaningful plot can happen in the span of 3 episodes, but I think I'm bound to be disappointed by the end of this season. So far there's just been no meaningful tension in this series. Every bit of potential conflict is resolved in short order and it's been the same harem bits for a while now. This episode is at least better with the Anne's story but not sure how much we'll get out of what's happening next. I mean, what can these people do to Katarina...

It was a good episode. Anne's backstory was sweet, finally someone noticed everyone's in love with Katarina.
I'd really like to know what happened at the boys' party hahaha

The lack of conflict in the recent episodes is kind of bothering me. Everything goes so well, nothing moves forward, and it stopped focusing on Katarina's efforts to avoid the bad endings, but despite that, it's still highly enjoyable. Hope something more interesting will happen over the last 3 episodes.

An unexpected episode on Anne, and I completely loved it!

What a sad backstory for Anne. Being born an illegitimate daughter, her mother dying in an accident, and then subsequently being abandoned by her bastard of a father. If Catarina hadn't regained her previous life memories, Anne's life would've been even more terrible and she'd just live to survive, not to really live. But once again, we see Catarina changing the lives of the people around her with how kind and caring (and dense) she is.

I thought when that bastard of a father came, Anne was just going to decline it and it'd be the end of it. But then came in Catarina as usual ('guns blazing' lol) and basically proclaimed that she was not going to let Anne be taken away against her will like that. And then Duke Claes himself came too. Man, Catarina sure has a good family.

Anne is like a big sister or even another mother to Catarina. That was really sweet. I really loved it! The best episode in the last 3 episodes I think.


Now, what's going to happen next week?

holy shit this series was so good. i didn't read the novel/manga before and i plan to watch this slowly since this is still airing but i got sucked up by the story and ended up marathoning all 9 episodes.

few days ago, i commented somewhere that the other isekai of this season, 8th son, sucked ass in everything like bad soundtracks, directions, voice actings, animations, and pacing... but this anime is completely the opposite of that; it kept me entertained within the whole 24 mins each episodes (didn't even skip the songs), and the bisexual harem didn't even bother me in the slightest because all of the characters are so likeable.

As someone who read a lot of this genre (otome game isekai) web/light novels, i'd say this didn't disappoint me even though i watched this before reading the original source. easily 8~9/10 up until this eps

All this filler is going to make the ending rushed and then all the anime only fans will hate one of my favorite titles and I'll be so sad when the rating drops lol.

But show me the boys night!!? Keith x Geordo ftw hahaha

It's not really being rushed at least not considering the pacing so far, it has 3 episodes left, more than enough for it to flesh out

I don't know if that part with Anne's backstory is from the LN but it did make me tear up. It was so touching. Anne has always been in the background and only jumps in to remind Catarina to behave and be more noble-like. I had no idea how much Catarina helped her and cared for it.

Anyways, that after credits scene is IT! This is what I was waiting for!

The last few episodes have been a mix of LN (in the story of anne's case) and i believe the side story comic (though it hasn't been translated up to that point so i'm not sure), it's likely the manga will get to anne's backstory eventually, but it hasn't yet as far as i know (it was specifically in the epilogue of vol 1 i think).

ROFL... BAKARINA picking her pajamas... LUL... that Eggplant...

Also, did Mary just casually confessed? "Does the other party have to be a boy" "I am more happy to be with Katarina-sama"

And no one noticed...

___ ___ ___

Sophia... wants a Fantasy setting from novels.

We sorta didn't get to hear what everyone besides Sophia wants to be if they get "reborn" tho...

And I thought this might trigger Sophia's past life memories, since previous episode mentioned her saying "wishing to be reborn"

___ ___ ___

BTW, the maid doesn't want to be "partners" like the other girls, more or less she wants to literally devote her entire life to serve Bakarina.

Also, Anne's father sucked, he literally marries and had kids with Anne's mother for only political purposes. I feel bad about Anne's mother, she lived and died a lonely life.

___ ___ ___

AND ROFL... Bakarina literally trolled everyone with the invitation. LUL, Mary with dead-eyes... she's so disappointed. (actually, I think everyone had dead-eyes), especially when Bakarina opened giftboxes and all them them are Scissors, LUUUUUUUL.

Anne's probably the luckiest among all the characters as she can just remain a maid till she dies. damn this was a really simple story yet the feels train just runs at full speed on this one.

and of course, that small bit after her backstory was probably an anime original made to fill in the missing minutes of this episode. not complaining really.

Otome Game continues to be all-fun as usual. I can't say that a lot has happened via plot development (admittedly the story has slowed down), but the anime has taken the time to acknowledge that the harem is as large as it is. I'm not sure if it was really necessary, but it was still entertaining to watch.

Even the maid has a story.

I have this feeling that when they expose the 'sins' of Catarina they're going to bring back her using school grounds for gardening purposes. Can't say that I remember any other notable sins.. but we'll see how she worms her way out of this.

The girl's so dense that I don't see her building a relationship with anyone, but it works out for her in the end.

In the original "Doom Ending" she's been trying to avoid this is where they expose her for bullying Mary etc...

So I wonder what all her doom flag avoidance and stealing the romance flags instead has changed it into?
