I have seen several anime that were very similar to this one, unfortunately for this show, most of them were far better.  The whole over used harem thing is one thing and not the worst thing but it is indicative of a show that must resort to using cheap tricks or tired cliches but without bringing much new or useful to the genre or theme of harem play.  I do not cater to bias against crossdressers but, the whole bs reason behind Yukimura's makes little sense beyond the first time he does it.  They need a better story reason for him to keep doing that and be either guilable enough or dumb enough to fall for it or just fess up and admit he likes wearing women's clothing.  The way underage nun is a bit odd to say the least.  It is fairly hard to see her being a college graduate with enough tenior to be a teacher as being plausible even if she were a genius, but this whole concept totally falls flat on it's face by how foolish, childish, and guillable she is to every tormenting act the wicked Yozora brings to her.  Really, even if she is young and a child, if she is a genius she would by rights have some element of maturity well beyond her years and certainly enough brain power to realize she was being lied to and tormented.  The only real bright spot in the series is in fact Sena.  She is a nice, charming girl who sometmes falls for easy tricks and lets her emotions overwhelm her reaction but that is understandable and way more so than the behavior of any other character. 

The lead character, Kodaka is way too lassez faire to any of the childish immature escapides his friends perform around him especially when it comes to standing by while the nut job, Yozora abuses everyone around her at will.  It shatters the illusion that he is supposed to be the only mature straight man type of character in the show. His sister is a bit too overly obsessed with some anime that you are forced to wonder if she is any more sane than the science student or Yozora.  And our lead character seems to do little to check that unhealthy hobby.

It is watchable but this show won't win any awards or brownie points on it's merits, it only works as modest entertainment with medium to low value though leaning toward the lower end of that spectrum.  It does a poor attempt relatively to compete with the dozens of other shows with a very similar feel to them, such as the show "Seitokai Yakuindomo" or "Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai" which do much better jobs even though both are a bit more suggestive of adult themes.
