A great harem anime!
18 April 2013 | by (Faversham, England) – See all my reviews

This is a great harem anime and I loved how the characters were drawn and the animation but this has some wonderful characters.

I liked Kaoru he is still a nice guy despite a very troubled and abused past then there's Aoi a very kind, polite young woman who actually loves him and there is doubt the feelings between them are all too real.

They move in together with Aoi's guardian Miyabi watching over them who can be strict but she does have a good heart, really does care about Aoi and does warm up to Kaoru.

Then other girls come in and I think making this a harem actually made it all the more interesting because all of the girls of Ai Yori Aoshi are nothing short of likable. While Kaoru loves Aoi he does care about the rest of the girls and treats them as friends.

I loved this anime though I also read the manga which is better and tells a more complete story.
