First Impression: Mr Love: Queen's Choice episode 1-3 I have unreasonable love already

The heroine is a producer of the show, Miracle Finder, which features all things strange. She meets four different men who in one way or another is connected to the show...and her. They will also lead her to the existence of evolvers, humans with powers.
Finally a straight-up, honest to goodness four flower reverse harem anime. (see Levels of Reverse  Harem) Even though the official site synopsis already mentioned the heroine, I was not having it until we see her visual. She finally showed up in the promotional video a couple of months before the premiere. Then we hear her voice in the final PV. And come premiere, she didn't have a name! But I did like how they script the dialogues or use clever devices to ensure she never gets to introduce herself or mention her name. They also announced her seiyuu only after the first episode aired. Hisako Kanemoto who also voiced B-Project's heroine, Tsubasa Sumisora. Unnamed female protagonists are common in otome games but for anime adap…

First Impression: In A Class of Her Own ep 1-3 ~ It's starting to feel like Sungkyunkwan Scandal

Xue Wenxi makes use of her brilliant mind by copying and writing romance stories. She will do anything to take care of her family and she's doing all this while pretending as a boy. In desperation, she agreed to stand in for scholar's examinations but ended up studying inside the all-boy Yun Shang Academy. Inside the academy, she will become part of the Yun Shang Quartet. This is a cdrama remake of Sungkyunkwan Scandal kdrama. 
First things first. Sungkyunkwan Scandal is one of my all-time favorite reverse harem kdrama. But with the Levels of Reverse Harem, it's now under two flowers (only 2 guys are interested in her). I was excited at first when I first saw the remake news but then I remembered how disappointed I was with the last two wuxia  I've seen so this time I tried to be indifferent. 

First Impression: Kdrama Was it Love eps 1-4 Hooked from first episode

No Ae Jung is a single mom and a film producer. She finds herself waist-deep in debt and her only way to pay it back is to produce a movie. And on top of that, these four men will make her life more complicated. 
Okay, I said I was hooked from episode 1 but it was exactly in the last part of the first episode. This drama makes use of cliffhangers effectively. It's just so incredulous though that she will meet again the guys from her past all at the same time. Actually, not all of them. It reminds me of kinda reverse harem drama, Reply 1994, where it keeps going to the present as the drama is set in 1994 and teases you of who she got married to in the present. (One of the guys in WIL is also in Reply 1994) In Was it Love, we get flashbacks from 14 years ago of who might be the father of her daughter. The past is keeping me on my toes of what really happened. It was not obvious at first but as it goes on I think we know who the father and the main guy is.  Well, I wouldn't mind…

Drama Review: Oh My Baby~ I loved it but....

Oh My Baby- 16 episodes

Jang Ha-ri is single, workaholic...and her biological clock to have a baby is ticking. She may have potential baby daddies: someone she hated, someone she grew up with and someone too young for her. 
My first impression was off to a great start. (See "First Impression: Oh My Baby kdrama ~ Eps 1-4 ~ An Early Favorite for 2020 reverse harem dramas"). I was quick to judge that it will be in the same boat of other reverse harem dramas, Three Dads and a Mom and Happy 300 Days. And oh boy I was totally wrong. The end goal was to have a baby but it's not as simple as that. The very first hurdle is the father and she's not dating anyone. The story is about going the most realistic but non-conformist way or commit herself to a risky relationship and lose her small window of being a mom. And the complication doesn't stop there.

Freshest News: In a Class of Her Own release date

In a Class of Her own airs on July 23 on iQiyi. Source: cdramatweets via b l o s s o m (If it's the same as Sungkyunkwan Scandal, this will be two flowers in Levels of Reverse Harem) More posters after the jump.

Related Reviews: Ensemble Stars!, A3! Spring and Summer and Idolish7 Vibrato~ Not reverse harem but I enjoyed em all

Now that A3! Spring and Summer have sealed its non-reverse harem deal, it's the perfect time to bring back my penchant for posting in threes for related reviews. We could say this is the second part of Related Review: Female Managers and All-boy Idol Groups: Idolish 7, B-Project and Top Management. But of course A3 has a female director and all-boy actors while Ensemble Stars! has a producer instead of a manager. So maybe we can call it now 'female-xxx and all-boy xxx-raising'. It doesn't make sense but you get the idea, right? Anyway, they fall under one flower in Levels of Reverse Harem. They are usually joshimuke which is media targeted for the female and has no romance routes. In the anime, one or more bishonen may show interest towards the female managers/producer/director whatever however the girls are in supporting roles only. The main feature is really them boys. Top Management is an exception since it's a kdrama. I'm going to review them in the order …

Anime Review: My Next Life as a Villainess~ 2020 The year of Bakarina

My Next Life as a Villainess ~ All Roads Lead to Doom! (Otome Gēmu no Hametsu Furagu Shika Nai Akuyaku Reijō ni Tensei Shite Shimatta) 12 episodes  
Eight-year-old Katarina Claes hits her head and realized she's a teenage otaku who's now living her life inside the Fortune Lover game. And as the title has given away...in a villainess role. She's doing her best to circumvent the routes that will lead to her doom. Warning: Some spoilers ahead. Check out First Impression: My Next Life as a Villainess Episodes 1-3. It's my first time creating one so I don't know how to reconcile the my first impression and the review proper. Repeat what I already mentioned or continue where I left off? In the end, I decided to continue where I left off and dabble a bit of what I said before. Also, I have not read the light novel or manga.
