8/10 for series overall just for the fact that they went with a non-main heroine, and that they showed the relationship beyond the first day or so. If you haven't gathered Clannad is my favorite show.

I love how heartwarming and relaxing this anime is. The drama that they had was very well done as well. The art was beautiful and all the girls were well done. I also loved the music in this anime and the OP/ED was just perfect for this.

Aww watching them all say their farewells to Pannya-chan was so sad. Great episode on this I'd say and a good ending to this anime. Looks like Miu graduated and Sana has taken over the club, and the merger is a success. Looks like everything's just fine. And did they just get another Pannya thing at the end?!

Ugh still pains me to watch Shingo and Miu, not that I hate Miu or anything. Its just I was rooting for Airi the entire time. Only reason I dropped this from a 9 to a 8. Oh well still a very good anime and enjoyable to watch. Airi and Sana <3.

If only they went for the Airi or Sana route.
Sigh, it's not like I hate Miu, it's just that she's
not really.... I dunno. Soft motherly characters aren't
usually my favorite since they don't have many imperfections
or quirks. Sigh, I was a great series though.

To all those complaining about the choice of route...I can't understand either.

Instead of the characters who, for example, drop kicked him on sight, verbally abused him, rejected his friendship out of hand or invaded his home, he in fact fell in love with the girl who supported him when he was struggling, talked with him normally and from the very start went out of her way to spend time with him.

Mysterious

8/10 for the whole thing
Bonus points for managing to finish 12 eps of a romantic anime without having to save the world/universe, no childhood trauma beyond asthma and a dead cat, most parents alive/still married/in the same country/not mentioned, and failing to send the heroin into a coma, all without swimming pools, onsen, 'I slipped and she fell'.
Also managing to have a good representation of an 'average' hero, not a genius or thick, not a pervert or eunuch, not an otaku or playboy, not violent or a wimp, no perverted middle school companion with a laptop of data on every girl, and managing to spend most of his time chasing one girl, even if only subconsciously.

Minus points as taking all the above into consideration, not much really happened...

>Enemy uses Sarcasm.
>It's not effective.

If you think a girl who looks like she has some screws loose on her head is a good option in comparison then I have to say I don't share your taste. People are mad mainly because the anime was building up for either an Airi or Sana end during about half the season before it did the 180 turn. Basically the protagonist teased both Sana and Airi with love possibilities then went "oh wait, this chick is cuter" and summarily dropped both of them like bags of shit.

Basically the protagonist teased both Sana and Airi with love possibilities then went "oh wait, this chick is cuter" and summarily dropped both of them like bags of shit.


Having rewatched the series from start to end, the protagonist never steps beyond friendship or wanting to get along with either Sana or Sena. Fair enough they have low immunity due to lack of male contact, but they worked themselves up and got let down. This was always going to happen with someone if an end was taken.
He needed to be aggresive with Sena to fix the atmosphere in the class. Then things like bathing with Sena was her move, not his. He sort of denied liking Miu to Sana early on, but it was his actions that led her to that question in the first place.
I would also like to say that Miu was more or less on the offensive from her introduction, it was her that initiated the group lunches, she invited him to the club etc. Also note that he matches name changes with everyone except Miu.
To steal your simile, the protagonist never picked the bags up in the first place, they picked themselves up(?).

As for the teasing plot, they had to do something to fill up the 12 eps. I would rather have had that than yet another onsen.
IMO it was the writer teasing the viewers instead of the protagonist teasing the girls, and only through isolated events or from the girls' perspective. Miu's events are there, they just have a bit more space between them and slower build up.

Miu may indeed have a few screws loose, but most of the characters did. Sena was bad with change, Sana hated men, Ange was a maid. Miu was similar to the protagonist in sacrificing herself far too easily. I thought the idea for this route was that should they sacrifice themselves for each other, neither would need to (or something like that)
Along the way, the protagonist helped Sana and Sena screw themselves back together a bit, and they mistook him for their personal prince on a white horse.

Then again, knowing the ending while watching probably makes most of these points invalid...

People with loose screws are more interesting. On the other hand, since I've lost a few screws, I'm not sure I have room to talk... ;)

God DAMN. First anime that actually has the main male character explicitly declare his love for one of the girls. Sigh. I wish it wasn't Miu though. I don't really like girls like her. I like them more like Sana. GOD DAMNN! /shakes fist. Also, I felt that this episode did nothing to the story. Felt like filler but oh well... It's getting there. Making a conclusive end to the romance is a good first step.

I last cried because of Angel Beats. Now this episode got me almost back to that. >.<'

They need a happier season 2. >.<'''''''

Same feeling bro...
even if it's a happy ending i feel a bit sad becasue.
Miu is my favorite and i fell like, the ending wasn't fully exploited and unsatisfied,feeling like if he chose one of the other girls it could be more satisfactory...
At least he ended up with Miu like i wanted but i feel little sorry for the other girls they all cute.

Who knows maybe making an AMV will calm me down :D

Ok, watched all eps. I will give this show 10/10 for these reasons

- First girl lost.
- MC's male friend isn't prevert.
- MC chose his best girl before last ep. and that mean we got a little after story (I won't call lasr 2 ep. the fillers)
- Very faithful to original content.
- Nice animation.
- All characters are likeable
- CUTE Pannya

For VN adaption standard, this is a great show.

Man I promised myself I'd not cry at the end of this one, but I couldn't help it. I cried when Miu cried, and I cried when Pannya jumped back in her arms at the end and then politely she nudges him to go.


I really think this anime could have been stretched out further, covered a bit more, given us more closure and time with the final couple and rated higher, but I'm not sure it could have been a full season. It's been a soothing, tear jerker, of an emotional ride all at the same time. I'll miss you Mashiro Symphony.

You just know that in the future that Shingo will ditch Miu for her mom; it's inevitable.

What made this interesting I think was that the "route" the story took wasn't the "default" one (or the one that seemed like it), that anime adaptions from these kind of games seem to like to take. So that, was a refresher.
The story was bland, but that should be expected, as they had to cram in stuff into 13 episodes, so there was very little space for story development. So much so that they had to leave out a heroine too it seems (originally 6, now only 5)
All in all, it was enjoyable enough to watch.

7.5/10 for me, just because he chose someone that was not someone i would have expected( from the start, half way you could tell he was going to choose mui...) was entertained the whole time.

Even though as early as after half the series, you'd kinda figure that Miu was a girl to reckon' with.
I liked her prob most of all.
Sana: A violent girl who tries her best at the early encounter she has with the Shingo, ends up kicking him whenever she feels frustrated over Shingo being close to Miu. Ends up suddenly having feelings for Shingo, and yada yada yada.

Airi: a girl he meets as a cheerful and sweet girl, only to meet her in school, as a big bitch. (We all know the somewhat-acceptable reason for why she acts like that)
Atcs all grown up, and keeps he distance, we all know she ain't after Shingo in such a way, nor as much as Sana ends up being.

Miu: Win. Always calm, caring,sweet(annoying voice over time though), etc etc.
She gives her all for others, neglecting herself, same as Shingo, to a certain degree.

I only bumped into this series by random, as I love testing out new romace/harem series. This got me good, as most harem shows never ends up with a couple actually getting together.
I did not know there was a game, and happy I weren't. I would prob not have enjoyed the series as much if I knew that there has been made several arcs, for most of the girls.

8/10 for the show.
4/5 for audio
4.5/5 for the art
3.5-4/5 for the story.

Many people were frustrated about it mostly because Miu is your overly sweet yet totally unimportant type of character which ALL romance shows just throw to the side, because she's so sweet she can give cavities.

And for people who actually knew of the show beforehand, it's even more frustrating because Airi and Sana are actually the main girls in every other Mashiro-iro material with Airi being more or less your main heroine. It's like watching Kanon and ending up with a Shiori ending instead of Ayu or Nayuki.

So, this finally came to an end for me, a rather late one though. I pretty much enjoyed this show and was surprised and pleased by the fact that they didn't go for a 'first girl at last minute' solution, but did it this way.
I was quite annoyed by the fact that they suddenly introduced a new character at the end; that ruined all built-up atmosphere and stuff. Overall I'm pretty positive about this show. I guess a 8-9/10 would be in it's place.

Is there actually an English translation available for the VN?

Really enjoyed that anime. After the first few episodes I thought that Airi would be the girl for our protagonist so it being Miu was a big surprise for me; not that I didn't like it, mind you.
Anyway, I think that I found a new passion for that sort of anime so I'll gladly continue watching them. 10/10 for this one

I, for one, found this serie to be really refreshing. I am glad that the typical 'tsundere' girl doesn't win for once. Miu may not have a broad or exciting character, but she matches the main character the best. It was a decent show and I think they did well to portray a youth romance.

It could have been a lot better but still very good, i would say this is the best harems i've watched so far, but seriously....WHAT THE FUCK WITH AIRI!?!?! Why the hell sis they start it out like that and then switch over to Miu!?!?!?!? CMON GUISE.

The characters were one of the strongest points in this and the art was beautiful and went along with a somewhat flawed but touching story. 9/10 but could have been a lot better.

While this anime bounced all over the place, I must say I really enjoyed it. It seems as if the show wanted to be longer and got chopped halfway through, so the producers wrapped it up quickly and picked Miu instead while brushing Airi and the merger aside. Again, that's still fine. Overall, 9/10.

animation are sometimes poor and jagged. character design are smexy. even the moms are MILFs! but the drawing in some cases are poor. especially the colored outlines on their eyes. its so annoying. i hope they adapt more routes in the future. Its pretty much your typical eroge adaptation without the sex scenes.

PANNYA-CHAN!!! Fuck best thing of the whole Anime =D still wonder what the fuck that creator is xD Great ending though sweet and cute all together, this anime was quite nice to watch and the epilogue made it even better :D

Somewhere I still wanted to see Airi X Shingo so that's why I'm going to see the special to see what they've done there, but still quite nice it was with Miu!

In general I've had a great watch of this sweet anime 8/10
