I don't know how else to describe this show in short besides "Sexual harassement/stalking of a teenage girl is fine and will eventually get rewarded!"- The Anime.
Honestly, that's it. That's the anime.
When I started I thought I'd at least be in for at least SOME nuance, since I'm not inherently against age gap romances, I wouldn't even be against sexual harassement of a teenage girl in fiction if it's done with the purpose of exploring a certain toxic type of relationship, but this does neither explore or make a commentary. It's supposed to be cute. Yeah. But I can't possibly find it cute

In short: The only good thing about this manga is the art and the character designs.
I don't really know what else to say. Its main issue is the overall plot, I guess they tried to make it some sort of Yamato Nadeshiko Shichihenge, as in the concept of the guys having to turn this manga loving plain girl into a fine woman (just without the comedy), but the result of it is not funny nor cute. In the first half the guys do nothing but showing main girl how inadequate she is, how being a fine woman requires you to act, speak, smell in ...

In short, I feel like this 3 episode series managed to achieve a lot of what the 2004 version didn't in 26 episodes...It's pretty darn cool.
The original is pretty mediocre on pretty much all aspects and besides its movie i wouldn't really recommend any of it. THIS on the other hand has a lot of potential, it establishes the world and conflict quite well, especially when it comes to the guardians. They have their own lives and their own conflicts outside of the Priestess, which is why initially most of them are reluctant to join Karin, or even downright reject her.
From the very ...

Holy hecking sh*t-balls, why wasn't this the way all of the original series was directed and executed?
After I watched the original anime of Harukanaru Toki no Naka de I was left quite disappointed by its mediocrity in basically every aspect; this movie entirely changes that, from its obvious improve of budget (or its use) to ost, execution and character writing. It's really great to be able to see actual struggle, Akane wanting to help and tired of being useless, the Guardians being sort of douchebags and forcing her to always stay behind (even if their concerns are understandable), the way the title of priestess ...

In short: If you're a fan of reverse harems you might get some enjoyment out of this, but I warn you it's fairly mediocre, everything about it is mediocre, from simple characters, to simple story, to its sort of episodic structure to it's art and its sound. If you're not a fan I don't think this will blow your mind in the least and might result in a painful experience.
I recently started going on a journey to watch and read all reverse harems I manage to come across and this is one of the first I started with. Am I disappointed? Sort of. Do ...

In short: The only redeeming point of this manga for me was the art. There was some good sex, but overall Inuzuka is just such a horrible male protagonist that I remained dry as a bone. If you like rape fantasy or like forceful boyfriends you might like this, if you expect something wholesome, stay away.
There's not much else to add besides that tbh, just that maybe I wouldn't have even written a review for this if it didn't have such a high rating and such good reviews. I just fail to understand what is fun about a guy coming off at a girl ...

I'm absolutely shocked and outraged this anime got only a 6.62 rating on MAL at the time of this review. I can only explain it with two reasons:
1. People gave this a try and dropped it the moment they figured out it was a reverse harem.
2. The comedy just didn't work for them.
Both of those reasons are fair in a way, you are free to not like reverse harems, even though I think they always come with an unfair prejudice I don't feel harem shows (generally directed to straight men) are subjected to the same treatment even if they can equal in ...

Honestly. there's really not much to say about this manga besides that it's a pretty standard typical ghost story that works a lot more in rpg format, how it was initially meant to be experienced. You can find the game for free under the name of Forest of drizzling rain if you're interested, but this is a pretty fair adaptation, that even expands on the game, at least from main male protagonist Suga's perspective which was very welcome on my part. (More Suga is never a sin *coughs* stan BTS *coughs* <- no they have nothing to do with eachother besides a BTS member sharing ...

In short: Entertaining, but don’t expect too much out of it nor attempt to try thinking too much about it.
Let me get this out of the way first: from an Entertainment point of view, it would probably get an 8, really. It’s lighthearted, it’s fun and if you don’t think too much about it, it’s really a must-watch for reverse harems/otome fans. I don’t think it’d be a waste of your time anyway, since it’s so short. What are you waiting for?
But since this aspect is what counts the least for me, let me get to the juice.
From an overall perspective, I seriously ...

<<In short: It's an overambitious anime that doesn't manage to keep up to its potential.>>
Story & Characters - 3
So, i've been following this anime from the very beginning and I'm not gonna deny, i did get charmed quite fast. Viktor was adorable, Yurio was adorable, Yuri and Viktor's relationship was funny and started to be quite adorable as it progressed and it's a friggin story about skating ! How awesome is that?? But ultimately it's just a story that tries too much with an absolutely atrocious pacing.
It doesn't always manage to express what it wants and there is also a lot of telling instead ...
