At first glance, this anime might be your typical harem-type series with the generic personality of the male protagonist – a weakling, half-witted and perverted guy – but, you could have been wrong. Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru, also known as OreShura in short, isn’t just your average male-oriented harem anime as it introduces a good plot that is something new to most of the viewers out there.
Our male protagonist, Eita Kido, is far different from what you’re thinking as a character from a harem-type series because in reality, he is devoted to his studies and have always wanted to attend medical school. He considers himself as “anti-romance” which is related to the fact that his parents got divorced and eventually abandoned him, so it is expected that he has a hard time to deal with the female characters around him especially to Masuzu Natsukawa which he later on agrees to be his fake girl friend, otherwise, she will blackmail him by revealing Eita’s notebook which contains embarrassing things about his delusions. However, his childhood friend, Chiwa Harusaki, has a romantic feelings to Eita and jealousy would always arise if somebody gets closer to him. As the episode goes on, Eita encounters Himeka Akishino and later on, Ai Fuyuumi, who both have a connection with Eita’s memories. It has been always a big question in a harem-type series on whom the male protagonist would end up.
This anime series is one of the best harem genre I have ever watched. Romance and comedy are well blended in the series, plus, an interesting daily lives of the characters are much anticipated. Having 13 episodes is worth watching to cover all the important details in the anime. With the high-quality animation produced by A-1 Pictures and directed by Kanta Kamei, the series has strong visual points that surely attract the eyes of the viewers.
Eita, though he doesn’t seem to be the one, isn’t just the conventional character from a harem-type series due to the fact that he thinks more mature in dealing with his everyday life not to mention he is evidently a goal-oriented character. One of the interesting facts with regards to his “relationship” with Masuzu is that, they are both haters of romance, which brings the pairing close to perfection. However, don’t just disregard the existence of these other cute female characters as they also play a big role until the end of the episode. I like how the series gives every female characters a chance to appear on screen. Though Masuzu and Chiwa might be the center and are closer to our male protagonist, other female characters, Himeka and Ai, are also given focus at least in 2-3 episodes as their distinctive persona will be more dominant including their seductive sides, and you’ll get to know their relationship with Eita in the past, thus, side stories are highly expected in the series. Instead of getting annoyed by the female characters because of their clingy acts and the attitude to dominate everything, you’ll rather find it charming for them to express those unconscious sides of them.
The opening theme, titled Girlish Lover, is really cute and catchy as performed by the female voice actresses in the anime, Chinatsu Akasaki, Yukari Tamura, Hisako Kanemoto and Ai Kayano. The combination of their voice is good and suits well towards the mood of the anime. On the other hand, the ending theme, titled W:Wonder Tale by Yukari Tamura, is also pleasant to ear that makes you not to skip any part of it.
So, let yourself find the best opportunity to watch this interesting anime series as it surely brings you the best from it. You won’t regret including it as one of your list-to-watch anime.
