Princess Lover
2/11/2014
Synposis: "Arima Teppei lost his parents in a traffic accident. His grandfather Isshin adopted him by force and ordered him to succeed the head of Arima Group Corporation. At Shuuhou Gakuen, a high school only for wealthly students, Teppei's new life as a celebrity starts." (taken from otakuelite.com)

 
Teppi is not your average guy, he wields a sword and knows kendo. To top it off, he is the grandson of the richest person in the world, sounds exciting right?
 
Wrong! Princess Lover is not exciting, it is far from it! In fact, stay away from this boring anime to watch something else. Something with a little more class and a better plotline!
 
-sigh- I wish I didn't watched this anime in the first place. To be honest, I felt nothing was interesting about the entire show. Also, didn't find it that bad to watch as well. Mhmm, I guess I would describe this show as pretty average.
 
I also felt that the show was confused about what it was trying to do. For instance, some of the scenes were funny then romantic and finally serious all in one episode. However, it wasn't serious enough nor funny nor ecchi enough to make me feel hatred or happy about Princess Lover.
 
In fact, this is one of the few anime that I truly feel neutral about. It could also be that Princess Lover was only about 12 episodes long that make it feel like an average anime and it probably could have build up to something better. Furthermore, I would also wager that the manga was a lot better in saying what it wanted to be. Now that I think about it, the manga had more ecchi and funny scenes in comparison to the anime.
 
One thing I do understand about this anime is the fact that it is a harem. All of the scenes, story, characters, and plot make this anime feel like a harem. I'm also positive this is another reason why this anime felt so average because the character Teppi didn't choose anyone and was passive aggresive about the women-expect he wasn't passive when it comes to fighting.
 
There also wasn't anything about the animation or plot that makes it unique. Again, this anime felt pretty average which made it hard for me to review this because I didn't find anything bad or good about Princess Lover.
 
Overall: 3/5 - Average, if there is ever a season 2, lets hope it is longer because it would certainly be better in whatever it was trying to accomplish. 
 
With that said, I don't really know what to recommend to people to watch since this anime was very bad in trying to be funny, romantic, and serious.
 
However, you could try out Ouran Highschool Host club for a funny reverse harem or you could watch MM! for a perverted ecchi experience. 
 

No pictures in this review due to me reaching my limit in imageshack. I'm trying to find another picture hosting site by the next review. Also expect the next review to be a lot longer and more wordy. Check out theawsome.
    Achievement!
