2016 Year in Review


Yay. Super late Year in Review again and by far the least posts for a year. I'm sorry, guys! m(._.)m But the reverse harem titles are definitely much more compared to the previous year. For 2016, we had more or less confirmed 9 reverse harem animes and with just two based from mangas, Kiss Him, Not me and the second cour of Akagami no Shirayuki-hime and one multimedia project like B-Project. The rest is all based from otomes. That's including sequels from Uta Prince no Sama and Hakuouki. The prevailing reverse harem theme for animes is musical with Uta Prince, B-Project, Scared Rider Xech and Magic Kyun Renaissance.
