This season’s required harem show.
The majority of OreShura is pretty standard harem fare: trips to the beach, secret stalking of dates, and all the haremettes not getting along. I liked the show’s beginning and ending (it is not quite your usual harem ending) but was bored in the middle.
To start off, the main girl actually blackmails the guy into dating her, which makes OreShura stand out from the enormous pack of its contemporaries. When the two main characters are on screen things tended to go well.
One of the other haremettes is a delusional Chuunibyou, which is great. But the other two are a tsundere and a childhood friend. As far as those two character types go, these two are fairly decent, but still… I’m sick of tsunderes. And childhood friends have always been a terrible character type. They are always annoying. It seems to be a universal law.
Still, OreShura brought a spark of ingenuity to the harem genre, and I have to commend it for that.
