Peter Panda

"Peter Panda" by Yeri Na 4 volumes-complete

Rui finds a panda who transforms to Peter. Peter looks like her would-be-ideal-man. I've been looking for this scans for the longest time but too bad the scanlators dropped the project.

Ren- Ai Shijo Shugi

Ren- Ai Shijo Shugi (Love Supreme Principle) by Kanan Minami 8 volumes - complete

Seri meets Tamaki, someone from her karate days, in the singles party. What started out as being his toy will end up a relationship filled with trials. This is intended for mature audience only. It reminds me of 'Haoi Airen' with the heroine being 'attacked' by different guys but the the difference is they're all in highschool (!). The smut scenes are literally repetitive and it's an endless let's trap-fest the heroine and maybe one for the hero too. The conflicts get a notch higher (or sicker) as ths story progress. The hero and heroine has a serious case of amnesia that they can easlily forgive and/or forget. I think the only consolation that I can think of is that at least the mangaka has improved as I've already read one of her more recent work before which is 'Honey x Honey Drops'.

Witch Yoo Hee

'Witch Yoo Hee' (' Witch Amusement" or ' A Witch in Love') - 16 episodes

Yoo Hee has her own fairy grandmother in the form of Moo Ryong to help her in the love department. But she ain't no princess. She's famous for being a witch and she forced Moo Ryong, a college dropout, aspiring chef and housekeeper, into a contract to pay his debts. The opening of the drama was like ripped by 'The Proposal'. The staff are scrambling as news spread that the witch has arrived. She walks in with her severe clothes and hairstyle and icy air. It was so addicting to watch, I only started watching this last week, but I'm disappointed with the last few episodes. It's not heavy drama and kept me amused. The main characters remind me of Taiga and Ryuuji of Toradora. The guys cook and clean and very protective of the girls. While the girl are such a brat and violent. To be fair, she had chemistry with all the three guys at the first half of the story. Aside…

Freshest News: Kaichou wa Maid-sama! green-lit for anime

Pretty in Pink

I think someone mixed up the pictures and descriptions of these two in MU. Also both mangas are showing the same mangakas. I've only confirmed it today when I saw Emi's review on 'Bokura no Pink' that these are two entirely different mangas. What are the odds of two reverse harems with similar titles? I've also accidentally discovered other mangas by confusing the titles. I've read 'Red Lion' thinking it was 'Red River' and then mistooked 'Penguin Revolution' for 'Penguin Brothers'. Anyway here's the differences with the two mangas..I think.

Bokura no Pink by Ayano Saijo - A girl being recruited in the Hero's Club. Now under CURRENTLY READING

Boku no Pink - from Mangaabyss: Three hot men and I'm supposed to become their Mama? Filed under COMPLETED

I am a Piano

I am a Piano by Asumiko Nakamura - oneshot

It's a journey of a piano represented by a girl. It's just 8 pages and yet it draws lengthy reviews from readers. Although I've read it like under 5 or 10 minutes it took me more than a few days to decide if anthropomorphic characters count for reverse harem. Just read it and be captivated as well. Thanks to Tartza for the tip!

Girls's Bestfriends

Okay this is so not a reverse harem anime or manga. The musical clips and MVs are superficial girls who wants diamonds and money and material and surrounded by men.

Issho ni Neyouyo by Shigeru Takeu

Related: Faster than a Kiss and Hana to Akuma

I'm not sure how to tag this two yet but the bishies are in favor with to the hero rather than to the heroine. And they're both sweet.

Plus the set up is eerily similar:
1. The main heroes are adult types who tries to have a distance between them (no touchy-touchy) and the much younger heroine.
2. Guy #2- The heroes' playboy bestfriend
3. Guy #3-Rival who's the same age as the heroine
4. Other guys who tries to get the attention of the main hero by going after the heroine
5. Harmless characters eg. butler and brother

"Faster than a Kiss" - Fumino, 16 years old, is dubbed as the leader of the delinquent girls of their class while Kazuma, 24 year old, is their plain looking homeroom teacher. And they're actually married! Thanks to Nicole via skribit.

"Hana To Akuma" - Vivi is a 200-year old demon who raised a human baby out of a whim . He named her Hana who is now 14-years old.
