A boy transfers schools and moves in with his sister, his childhood friend, a rich deadpan girl, a big-breasted fanged eyepatch girl, and a little kid, all of whom want to marry him.
This show could have been much, much worse than it actually was. The reason is that this show took things to such an extent that it ended up being a parody of the harem genre. I’m not entirely sure if this was intentional. For example, see the above scene where he actually marries everyone, has their babies and becomes a housewife.
The show also has no sense of shame. All of the girls are completely frank about their intentions to marry this guy. This is especially true of the sister, and for once the guy actually has no interest in her whatsoever (but really, the guy has no personality, so who can tell…).
I still wouldn’t recommend this show to anyone, although it was often amusing. A parody of the harem genre like this is more horrifying than it is comedic.

I watched this series for a few episodes b/c Akiko looks cute and she’s wearing tights. Alas the Akiko fanservice quickly became scarce and instead the annoying other girls took up most of the time. Ok, Anastasia was mildly entertaining but the others only annoyed me. So I dropped it after episode 7 and agree w/ your review!
I never thought I would say that one of the best girls in a harem would be the imouto, but you’re completely right. The way they made absolutely no one in the show acknowledge her as having a chance made things much more interesting (plus, the fact that her brother was writing incest books at the same time).
