Go-toubun no Hanayome Review — C+

A boy tutors five girls who all fall in love with him.

I miss harem shows. They’re often not very good but I still like them for some reason. Maybe it’s just nostalgia. I’m certainly not going to complain that we have fewer of them now.

But, this one was pretty good! I read the manga and enjoy it too. Part of what makes this one special is that the girls are quintuplets. It changes the relationship between them and makes that aspect of the series much more interesting, unlike the usual harem show, where it’s confusing why they put up with each other. I also quite like the main character of this one. All these girls are falling for him, but he honestly doesn’t give a single fuck. All he wants is to do his job so he can get paid and support his little sister, his one true love, but these idiots keep getting in the way.

It’s nothing especially remarkable, but I liked it!

Also, Miku is best girl. Obviously.

One thought on “Go-toubun no Hanayome Review — C+

  1. I liked Quints because it avoided most of the usual tropes of the harem genre (particularly the reliance on fanservice and the accidental pervert). That the harem was unusually close (rather than being blatant rivals) also made it stand out.
