Where to even begin, I think that the word that describes this show best is excess. I have seen many harem, a lot of supernatural harem like this one too, but I must say it is the first time I see a harem be so blunt and excessive about the introduction of its characters. We didn’t even need a second episode, we already have human, underground people, space people, ghost, spiritual divinity and magical girl all in one room ready to fight in a 5000 yen apartment. To be fair, I would gladly kill someone to get a 50$ a month apartment too, so I don’t blame that every single person in the universe wants to fight over it, because I don’t think I have ever seen anything below 200$ even when it is infested with cockroaches.

Back on track, this show was actually rather funny, it seems like a good light, over-exaggerated story and it makes it rather fun and interesting to see a show just completely explode a genre and go in excess with it. Harems have been done over and over again, it becomes rather difficult to bring in something new and original, so Rokujouma no Shinryakusha didn’t bother thinking too much and just took everything that existed, put it all together and make it as incredibly exaggerated as it can be. This harem will probably give me headache if I was going to watch it, you can be certain that with the amount of characters in there, you won’t get much character development, I’m pretty sure we will just have a constant flow of characters introduced one after another.

The show has some light ecchi scene, the girls all have very generic personality and overall there is really no real story that will come out of this, just a constant flow of conflict and bickering over what looks like a 1 room apartment. While I don’t think this show is terrible, I don’t think it is THAT interesting either. I do not plan to watch or blog it, but I think it is still something decent if you want to see a genre put to the extreme.
