Especially considering how ironic it is by the end of the series.

I must recommend Shuffle! I was pleasantly surprised with some of the stuff that happened in it as the series went on.

I liked Shuffle. Plain and simple.

It did it's thing without really trying to be different. One of those good "average" series.
Except in this case, it REALLY shocked me a couple of times with it's developments.
spoiler[I don't think I have to tell anyone how freakin' scary Keade was...]
Not to mention that spoiler[the "actual" romance solution was fairly suited, and left me more satisfied than I ever thought possible.]

It's the perfect example of expecting one thing and getting another.

It's kind of ironic that they posted NHK here too. It's kind of like the same thing: spoiler[Fools us into thinking it'll be a more pervy ver. of Genshiken... only to transform into one of the best psychodramas anime has to offer. ...without a NGE ending!]

Can't really say anything about Ragnarok... and... I'm happy.

Interesting stuff ANN! Good picks!!! Even though most fans have probably already been exposed to Shuffle and NHK, a simple notice never hurts.

Shuffle is my favorite harem series. My two favorite selling points.

The guy isn't milquetoast.

None of the female leads beat the crap out of him every episode. A slap on the back is okay.

Other than that, I like the energy of the dub. Jerry Jewell doesn't do enough dub work.

I also like the twists it takes towards the end. A lot more interesting than the typical childhood best friend story arc.
