I love how this series subverted the "tsundere/bitch main heroine cliche." This anime should receive a medal among harem series for that alone. Very happy with the Miu ending as she has the best overall personality and the most wifely qualities out of all the girls.

You could say that Airi and Sana had more "character development,", but that doesn't always make for a great character, and it doesn't really amount to much in a mostly generic harem series like this anyway. Airi and Sana are more short-term girlfriend material for excitement and hot sex.

I agree with ur opinion

Solid ending to a solid series. Loved most of the characters and the animation was great. Always nice to see a harem that ends with a girl, especially if that girl is semi-decent.

So glad that Shingo and Miu ended up together. Since episode 1 I had a feeling that the two of them would make the best couple. And when he joined the Kitty Club and began to interact with her more, I went from "they look good for each other" to "when is the wedding; I'd like a front seat". I knew he wasn't going to end up with Sana because she's the only one that he didn't see naked lol. Fate wanted Shingo and Miu to wind up together, and the cats were excellent in proving this. Even kitty Shingo wanted kitty Miu over her....and she was the one feeding his behind! Even when Sana was crying in the rain Kitty Shingo left her side. Then to kick a horse when she's down eventhe stuffed animal kitties got closer. Fate was really screwing with her there; and I felt bad until her "I'll be your gf after Miu graduates comment". I thought everyone was going to walk away with their dignity here but no. She had to say something like that out loud. Airi was right to keep it in. Though I would have been happy with her or Miu. Airi was the obvious choice cause main character-past interaction-school idol, that's why. So either her or Miu, who he always had a connection with would have been fine by me. Loved the series, mostly cause it's the first harem I've seen where not main girl get's the guy, and not main girl happens to be my pick of the litter for him!

Finally I'm done with this cheap ass romance.

Too bad that the beginning was good but it went worse on later episodes.

Well this anime was refreshing. I was expecting the redheaded bitch to win but glad I was proven wrong. Solid 8/10 because it was not generic as most harems are.

Too bad that they focused at this strange creature in last episode and not developed more relationship...
But anyway, great series, 8,5/10
Miu is good choice.

I'm not going to go so far as to say I was disappointed, but I definitely feel like too many things got swept under the rug once the focus on Airi diminished. The whole merger controversy became nonexistent and the backlash towards it in the last 2 episodes felt meaningless since it was just like "lul petition" and all is well. I didn't dislike Miu and I'm not going to stoop down to frivolous shipping, but I really do think this had far more potential with what was happening between Airi and Uryuu before. My interest waned the more it started to focus on the Sana/Miu/Shingo love triangle and Kitty Club.

But with that said, I still found this to be filled with plenty of enjoyable moments and the characters really did keep me invested into their lives, especially with how each girl responded to her feelings towards Uryuu. Even disgruntled by the pairing choice, Miu and Uryuu's romance still had very sweet moments. I just find it a bit sad that people have been conditioned by harems to the point where an MC picking a girl = auto-good. I liked the point that Miu's mother (who is, by the way, totally awesome) made about making memories along the way and I like how they tied in the whole idea of the colors of life to that towards the end.

7/10, I'll be checking out that Airi special since I was still rooting for her up until the end.

Fuck this anime! This thing made me rage. I wish I never picked it up. It started alright, then it went to good and towards the end it was all freaking drama and MC choosing my least favorite girl. First five episodes showed pretty much that they are going for Airi route. MC was clearly going out of his way to be helpful to her and befriend her. Then she was forgot and they focused on least interesting girl and that damn Kitty club. MC never expressed his opinion so that hug and confession came out of nowhere the last few episodes.

Objectively, it's a nice anime, had it's moment then it went to too much drama and then they switched the usual ''main girl wins'' scenario. But I just can't shake the feeling on how they switched back and fort too much. Glad for anyone who got their favorite chosen but for me, the ending was fucking painful to watch. This anime practically cockblocked me to oblivion.

Probably will give it crap score cuz' of how I feel like shit now. Yeah I'm not being rational, don't give a shit.

Overall this was pretty decent; I enjoyed it more than I disliked it, at least. I appreciate that they actually went through with Shingo getting together with one of the girls (Miu). Sana ended up being the more interesting of the two in that story line (the scene with her crying on the swing was probably the most emotionally powerful moment of the series), but I could get behind Shingo x Miu. However, I think they severely dropped the ball in handling Airi, considering the way she was introduced in episode 1 and subsequently built up for the next 5 episodes. It was infuriating seeing her gradually fall into the background after getting hyped up on her... *sigh*. The focus on Miu's route also resulted in Sakuno and Ange being underutilized. As with Airi, it sucks when you get introduced to characters only to see them sidelined. It's insulting to the characters and the audience.

^ Like the others said. This show shouldn't focus on Airi for the first 5 episodes and ignore her feelings and existence on the half end while the MC is choosing Miu at the end.

I also agree with everyone else. I did not like how Shingo choose to be with Miu at the end. I did not like how they made us think that Shingo was going to end up with Sena. I really wanted Shingo to end up with Sena. :( However, i really did like the opening and ending song. :3

i can see why this anime does not have a high rating. a lot were disappointed with which girl the mc picked, but this is what separates itself from other harem cliche anime. everyone expected shingo to end up with airi since she was the first girl to be introduced, and like every other typical harem/romance anime the first girl is always the most probable to end up with the mc. i personally preferred miu over airi but i didnt expect shingo to choose miu so i was super surprised when he confessed, and more surprised a harem mc actually made a move (he even grabbed miu's ass). props to shingo for making a bold move most harem mc's wouldnt make. this anime is really unique in its genre, you wouldnt expect an ending like this from other harems. while others are against it, i have never felt so satisfied with a ending in a harem.

I really liked Miu at the start of the series, but I hate when they develop characters and at the end the MC just chooses one of the characters with less development throught the series, you just lose any kind of attachment and just suffer because of the bad script.

1/10 if I could rate this lower I would do it.

Wow. I can't believe I actually liked this show.

Just need to find out how to quote this every time so I can dodge the stupid 30-character limit.

5/10 Can't ignore the fact that the Shiro ended up with Miu she was too calm and the fact that she was older leaves that if a second season were to happen it would be a new male maybe transfer student? Anywho it really dragged me down and made me feel disinterested because how mellow it was other then returning the cat back to its fam. If shiro got with Airi is what I thought it'd be like or that she could have found interest in the blonde guy from the show or something instead of leaving her hanging same goes for Sana. I've seen waaaay better shows then this one and it reminded me more of a Tohru Honda from Fruits Basket copy minus the zodiacs and ppl turning into animals. Muir just didn't fit for my taste. Sappy.. and weird.

I read from this Japanese site and the Admin of that site writing this article said that it is fitting for Airi and Sana to lose, as both mistreated the MC. However, Miu treats the MC well, so for the MC to fall for Miu is extremely realistic, as none of us males in real life would want to have a girlfriend or marry someone who is violent, abusive, and inconsiderate >>

Quoting that site's Admin :


Summary : Basically he explained that those 2 girls reaped what they sowed, for their mistreatment of the MC via words and actions that make the MC dislike them, so the MC choosing the more gentle girl, Miu, that treats him well, is a logical outcome. All of us males will choose the caring and understanding girl, and only masochists would choose the Violent Tsundere or girl who mistreats us.
I am someone that would like to watch a Harem Anime with 2 male leads that each gets their own harem company of girls from the main cast. For example, 1st male lead gets a company of 4 girls and 2nd male lead gets 2-3 girls etc.

i always feel baad for the loising side in this but as long as they follow their hearts i am fine with the ship

unless its story like nana what i read 10 or 15 chap mist of it near end and end, she f chose cheating asshole and stays with him knowing he sleeps around to bad author died, i hope some continues the story and kills the jerk off cause she to dumb to dump him (i get forgiving once or twice but this is retarded), that's only way to make me hate a ship despite heroine who is the main loves the guy and even if he loves her what i doubt

the whole show bored the fuck out of me but i decided i needed to finish it to see the ending. i think this show is average but it does a good job with the female characters and their acceptance of rejection. sana would have been more interesting and realistic if she was jealous of and loved miu and not shingo. shingo and sana barely had much of an interaction and the hints in the show kept pointing at sana being super lesbo but the show backed out last minute and gave a shit excuse for why sana is jealous. anyways the opening song is the best part of this anime but it's super fucking misleading because this show barely gets dark at any moment . also okasan character is annoying af but it’s ok
