Nyan Koi: Harem, Actually

Currently finished: Episode 4

It may started off as something else, but by now, it's pretty clear that this is a harem anime. But I have to say the approach is actually quite interesting. Come to think of it, which romantic comedy anime hasn't been a harem? I think that's the easiest way to make an romantic comedy. It's either that or love triangle, but love triangle tend to get too complicated and too serious over time, so practically speaking, harem probably is the only way to make romantic comedies.

Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with harem animes. It's just lately, too many harem animes takes the same approach, so they all look and feel the same. Nyan Koi however, with this unique approach, is quite refreshing. Though I didn't list it in my choices of top 5 from October, I think I might have given it a tied position if I have seen episode 4 before I decided my top 5. But I am going to give it:
