They had 80 episodes and still couldn't wrap up the story properly!
15 July 2019 | by esodekeSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this anime up until the about middle of the first season. The story started to feel slow-paced and I ended up skipping a lot of episodes. I feel like they didn't need up to 39 episodes per season to tell the story. I usually don't enjoy reverse harems but this one wasn't too bad. I liked the writing but hated the animation style for one main reason: Literally ALL the young male characters LOOKED EXACTLY THE SAME except for their hair. Seriously, it might as well been the same guy putting on different wigs and changing his voice a little. I'm not sure if there was a reason for that or the animators/artists were just like 'meh, no one's gonna notice if we change the hair.' I watched this for the romance but I definitely wasn't satisfied with the way things ended in season 2. Even if season 3 is released, I WILL NOT sit through another 39 episodes. Rather, I'll just skipped to the end to see how everything turned out.
