Everyone made their final moves, but they all got rejected in the end.
But they still love Ema.

Subaru vs Natsume.
Tsubaki vs Azusa.
Fuuto vs Yuusuke.

I bet the second conflict will be more intense.
I guess a second season would be fine.
I’m always searching for something, for someone. This feeling has possessed me I think, from that day… That day when the stars came falling.

Bleh. The ending seemed to be a little too rushed, and I hate that she didn't choose anyone. Oh well.

I'm glad that this ended. 5/10

I'm now going to watch Diabolik Lovers, which already beat this by miles.

LOl, awww, Yusuke was so excited for Chii's acceptance over looking for his own. Certainly not my favorite brother but had one of the cutest moments in this end. xD

YES! A Natsume kiss again!!! OMG, he's just my ideal type!! If it was me, I would choose Natsume than anybody else!! :D :D :D

The ending was as expected but I still enjoyed it. Great series. This is probably one of my favorite reverse harem series. :D
Senjougahara: Don't call me "this chick"
Araragi: Then what should I call you?
Senjougahara: Senjougahara-sama.
Araragi: SEN - JOU - GA - HAA - RAA - SAA - MAA
Senjougahara: I don't like the way you say it. Say it properly.
Araragi: Senjougahara-chan~

Haha. After the novelty of laughing at the show because of how many boyfriends she had and how many stereotypical shoujo moments they could fit into an episode wore off, there wasn't any reason to watch this anime. It was really funny in the way that it was never intended to be, but even that isn't enough to get me to watch another minute of this show if they ever do make a second season. And I still didn't learn all the boyfriends names. Wow, nothing happened the entire anime.. NOTHING.

Summing up this episode:
"I'm sorry, I only love you as my brother." - "Ok. But I still want to f**k you."
"You've turned them down for now. But there'll be a second season. Muhahaha."

it's kind of sad that not even yuki kaji and hiroshi kamiya as seiyuus could save that anime for me. usually i love their voices so much, but this time... it was the first time ever where i just wanted them to stop talking >_<

also, the heroine. submissive and stupid as always. and unfortunately i have to add "as expected". there wasn't a single moment where i liked her.

the brothers were supposed to be attractive, right? i mean that's usually the main thing about a reverse harem. but i couldn't find any of them attractive. they all just blurred together because they looked so similar (maybe it's because i didn't really like the character design/art style). their characteristics weren't really different either. i couldn't even root for anyone.

and the squirrel - wow, what an annoying character. and pointless as well.

not even the ending could save that anime. i'm glad she actually tried to reject them, but she failed, so it's the same ending as i thought - an open ending. (btw, i actually thought tsubaki and azusa were going for a threesome. well, that would be an interesting ending at least!)

all in all i give that anime 4/10 points. i'm glad that other people could enjoy it, but i couldn't find anything enjoyable or likeable about that show. welp.

And then there was the creeper Kaname who is an old monk, yuck, and Natsume who started out somewhat decent and then kept forcing himself on her too just like his twin brothers.

Kaname was pretty forward and flirty but he didn't do anything to her at least (unlike Fuuto who almost raped her)
Natsume was my favourite, even if he was really forceful to her. I think Ema was okay with his uh, kisses most of the time since Natsume's the one who understands her the most.

It pretty nice. lol, idk but i think the game is much better.( it is much better as usual) , i noticed that they rushed things in this episode but overall it wasn't a big deal at all since they've ended it that way and its not that bad as i would thought . i love the series but tbh i didnt feel much shoujo-ish romantic feels or is it just me being dull boring shitty otaku idk. really. haha

it would have been amusing if it ended with Ema introducing a boyfriend to the family.

Throughout the entire series, I honestly was hoping for this to happen. I wanted her to be like "Sorry to disappoint you boys, but I've already got a hot stud right here so you guys can go and hit on the first girl that gets close to you. Bye!" XD Either that or she hooks up with Juli instead of the brothers. I would find that quite a comical twist.
After reading the summaries of the LN version of this, I was a little disappointed with the entire show. Half of the brothers didn't even appear most of the time and Natsume's kiss was too much of a Tsubaki/Fuuto move. But he's Natsume so I didn't hate him as much as I should. Many of the amazing plot twists of the LN weren't even used. Anyways, the only good thing that came out of it was the eye candy......

OKOK. Went back to a 6/10 after I got over my post-BroCon feels. LOL I realized how forgettable this was, and how the plot was so silly that it didn't deserve a 7/10 after all.

Why do I watch these fucking otome adaptations? gawd
The last line was so stupid and cheesy I almost barfed.

Too many irritating people and shit moments, not enough Louis.

Hope she ends up with Natsume because he's fugly and she's boring as fuck. They deserve each other.

A pretty meh ending if you ask me, well I wouldn't be amazed that there might be a second season but well I'm not too excited for it, the series was rather boring and had a very very bad pace... 3/10

one word for this anime... BROZONE. a zone much much worse than the friend zone (not that bad when u live with them in the same house though.... hmm)

totallly was rooting for natsume (and a bit for yusuke, i have a soft spot for him cos i love punk redheads, to to mention the fact that he was the first one to love her >:I )

Meh ending, I was rooting for Natsume.

I guess they're keeping their options open, in case there is another season.
Definitely not gonna follow though.

Well, that ending was alright..I guess.

I always get sad or kinda sad whenever I finish watching an Anime so now I'm kinda sad :/

If I were to really choose, I will choose Yuusuke for Ema because Yuusuke is the first one to like Ema and they're both at the same age that's why it can work while as for the other brothers they're just old for Ema.

If they'll make a season 2 I think I'll still watch it to know the conclusion ^_^

Out of curiosity, I'll still watch Amnesia and Diabolik Lovers because some of you said that they're all alike that's why I got curious. I think this is my first reverse harem anime and I am not into reverse harem anime, I just have a feeling that I need to watch these shows.

Now I need to watch some comedy anime :3 thank you ^^

Exactly my thoughts.

Anyway, the show was too stupid to be true. Characters are quite interesting in fact, but the development fails hard.

This was SO much better than Amnesia and Diabolik Lovers. As far as reversed harems go, I was surprised to be so engaged in this because the previous two shows hadn't left me with high expectations. At least in BroCon the heroine spoke in complete sentences (unlike Amnesia where the girl's dialogue was mostly "Huh? Uh?") and not every single guy with exception of that butthole Fuuto was out to rape her like in Diabolik Lovers.

The brothers who were given screen time actually left somewhat of an impression on me. I was rooting for Natsume all the way before I even realized he was the favorite among fans. He had just this really genuine concern for Ema and the little things he did made me feel good about him.

Hmmm I'm actually surprised about the mediocre reviews this got. I wasn't sure if I'd like it when I started watching but I ended up finishing it in 2 days. I absolutely loved this Anime even though the setting is a bit weird (I was kind of relieved they're just her step brothers and not related by blood, that'd be awkward). So anyway, I really liked quite a few of the brothers, Natsume and Tsubaki the most.

I think she made the right decision not to go for anyone though, it'd ruin their family completely and be sort of awkward for the others. Ema is a pretty good main girl compared to other heroines (e.g. Diabolik Lovers + Amnesia) for the first time I could genuinely understand why people would fall for her because she's just so cute, kind and not as dumbfounded.

It's probably not quite worth the 9/10 I gave it but I reeeeally enjoyed it. (can't stop listening to this damn happy intro song either.) :D

This whole show was so many levels of ridiculous and asinine, yet I couldn't help but enjoy the crazy train regardless. It was just so amusing to watch the brothers tease Ema and I found this to be a very guilty pleasure. The conclusion was really so-so, but that's a typical harem so nothing new. Not to mention I went into this with realistic expectations, so good writing is the last thing I would expect.

I'm at least glad that this didn't turn out to be as similar to Diabolik Lovers as I had been led on to think. Sure Ema was a passive doormat (which she realizes and corrects, so +1 to her) and the guys were pushy, but it seemed relatively lighthearted and no one truly got hurt. Speaking of the guys, I think that for the most part they were...well, not unlikable at the very least. I think Louis was my favorite since he was so laid back and in his own little world while looking out for Ema as a brother. Wataru was really hilarious too, especially his innocent goal to win Ema over one day. Juli was a hilarious yet random addition.

Although I really do think a 5/10 suits this show better, I can't deny how much I enjoyed it regardless of common sense. 6/10

In the end she didn't choose anyone. What a surprise..>.> But at least she addressed it unlike some frog-eyed heroine from a singing anime.

I was so happy that one of the bros turned off the TV. Good to know none of them like Futo, like me!

My final verdict: I give this anime 6/10.

The show obviously isn't amazing but isn't terrible either. It does has its special moments, and some of the brothers are tactful and likeable, while some are just plain unlikeable or devious, while some didn't even have enough screentime to have a concrete opinion on (eg. Iori).

This anime tries its best to be provide romantic moments but to me, I'm not feeling it so it fell flat instead. That being said, it does has its heartwarming family moments, although some of the moments were a bit cheesy and exaggerated.

I also assumed that this was adapted from an otome game, kinda surprised that it was originally a LN series.

I'm okay with the brothers falling in love with a plain girl, but I don't buy that all of them fell in love with almost instantly after she first appeared in the house and to have such deep feelings for her when some of them spent time with her for a short while and some having spent no quality time with her at all. And the way they express their love to her...hugs I don't really mind but it's the kisses that are out of line. It's just my opinion. I have my own expectation of the proper way a person should express their love to another person but obviously not in the manner shown in this anime.

With that being said, I was expecting a conspicuous kind of chaos from the title of the show but what is being shown, the chaos is pretty contained.

I managed to survived from this series, somehow. I like Yuusuke's expression when he received the letter lmao. And Hikaru was really interesting tho. The boys were really persistent and the girl didn't choose anyone in the end /smh

Natsume kissing her was just random. I don't get his popularity.

Overall not a bad show. 6/10.

Though I would have preferred she chose Subaru, I'm kinda glad they left it open ended. I had a feeling it was going to be this way from the start. Ema's not the type of girl to compromise her earnest desires like that and all she ever wanted was a real, big, dango family.

8/10, would watch again.

Not gonna lie: this series had me in my feelings. Sadly I was disappointed in the last episode, mainly because I didn't sense the romance much. As much as I would have loved to see who she might've picked it did end with that "i love all of you as friends" cliche ]. Then again if she didn't pick the brother/brother (@the twins) i would've have been even more upset. Btw does anyone have a guess as to who turned off the tv?

Just as i thought it was an open ending but it was wrapped up nicely. Ema rejected them but their feelings still remains the same. If Ema ends up with Natsume that would be perfect imo. One thing that disappointed me is that some brothers didn't got enough screen time. Aside from that it was a good anime.

lots of cringe. maybe the anime scripting congested things.. she practically kissed everyone. the family aspect felt a bit misused(?) something happened every few minutes per episode. haha

but, I do see potential in this thing. maybe the original is better. solid character backgrounds.
