From the article:
Quote:
He's a complete yandere with initially appeals to Yui's maternal extincts...

I assume you meant "He's a complete yandere which initially appeals to Yui's maternal instincts..."

Sisters, but not a single twin that I recall.

Frankly, I question how many were his sisters, as Dad must have really gotten around if that were true.

Not just twins, but around 10,000 identical girls.

Not so fortunate, huh? lol I have twins, fraternal ones. A boy and a girl. It's been an experience, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. They're now 16 years old.

Clannad had twins as did Vampire Knight Guilty. I think Shuffle would fit too, there were some sisters or something with that.

Still think fondly of the Love Alliance and Karen's confession to Mikeu despite stretching the "will they, won't they" a little too long. The casual question from Minna and response by Karen really was touching because of the implications for all of them. Very well done.

I wouldn't exactly call Diabolik Lovers (speaking only of the anime) a romance, unless Stockholm Syndrome counts.

Also L and R from Marginal #4, though the anime (wisely) cut out the manager and the romance aspect, and made it just about some dumb but cute high school boys who happen to also be idols...

.... and added some nice ~moments~ between L and R... mostly on L's side.

I find it interesting that Rem and Ram are spearheading this list, since as far as I can tell from the first season, only one of them are in love with Subaru. Or does that change later in the novel? Yeah, I know; they're not IN the actual list, but.....

It's a trick question as it's based on a dating game so whatever girl you romance, you later learn that, gasp, she's not your sister. That much I know but I don't know if it means that none of them are actually related to the MC or that it's a special case where whatever girl you romance turns out not to be your sister.

The show was having none of that so they didn't adapt any of that. "No dating" and "they're all your sisters"... in an adaptation of a dating game...

I'm here to remind people that Utawarerumono has a canon gay threesome, and to top it off, the main character is not involved at all.
