No one else is watching this?

I now have seen 4 episodes and I was right. We see the typical development curve of an insecure girl to a heroine (all though it is all still in the making). The 4th episode even seemed a bit rushed. But as expected I find it amusing enough to watch in between some other anime.

The fact that it is a dating sim series for girls and it's about as "shoujo fluffy" as you can get, no. It also doesn't help that Angelique's parent company Koei is known for one thing only, pumping out tons and tons of sequels of the exact same game, just with a different number at the end. Like Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors, and Angelique (I think there's almost 10 of these).

And yeah, I caught a glimpse of the show. I didn't see any promise, and knowing its heritage, I dumped it pretty quick. I already have a healthy loathing for dating sims/hgames geared towards the loser male turned to anime (Kanon, Air, Clannad, KGNE, Shuffle, etc). Female targeted dating sims are no exception for me.

I am so glad we dont have those games here. I didnt know there even was a game of Angelique.


Also I find Koei pretty good with titles as Disgaea and phantom brave. Also The game about the Azure Azoth, I really like :)

Koei didn't have anything to do with Disgaea or Phantom Brave other than distroing it in the EU. The true Koei made games are basically one game re-released 100 times with a different number in the title.

Well, I'm writing a review for this one.

I think it's aimed at kids and young teens. It's soooooooooo sickly sweet and corny that it can't possibly be for adults.

It should be. It's a dating sim aimed at teenage girls. You know, like the ones aimed at teenage boys. The ones without the sporadic h-scenes.
