This anime is about a situation where the lucky pervert in harem anime was actually a female. Indeed it's a yuri harem anime and at this point the only true one at that, does that mean it's special? Not especially, no.

The story of love to Lie angle plays out like a standard harem anime but with even less of the intricacies of good story telling than most harem anime out there. While it's not the biggest failure ever it certainly is uninspired and feels lifeless a lot of the time. The setup are extremely typical and might be meant as a parody of sorts by copying everything that bland harem anime do. The whole setup actually ends up less of a harem and more of a love triangle. While true for a lot of harems this show with it's limited time basically only has two girls with enough screentime to be worth noting that are persuing the main character. 

Limited animation and sound doesn't help much either. While the animation is limited thankfully the off-model moments of this anime are quite limited at least but by no means is this a graphical masterpiece. Same goes for the sounds design. The outro is at least catchy to some extent but won't be for everyone, the animation doesn't really help it either, again. The voice acting is okay, solid enough but forgetable yet again. 

This anime isn't really worth watching. If you really want to have watched all the yuri shows or at least a lot of them you can pick this up easily. It takes no time to power through it all and it takes probably even less to forget what happpened throughout most of it's run despite being so short.  Nothing really makes this stand out from the crowd other than being ''yuri'' and a ''harem'' and I can say with confidence that this isn't enough of a parody to be imediately fun but it can't hold it's own in the way of writing either so it's neither a serious show nor a show that is particularly amusing. Uninspired from start to finish, this show simply existed.
