Title: Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru

Genre: Comedy, Harem

Eita Kidō shuns anything to do with romance or love. One day, the school beauty Masuzu Natsukawa invites him to walk home with her. He gives in and walks home with her. Masuzu is tired of constantly getting confessed to by boys, so she suggests that she and Eita become a fake couple. Although Eita tries to refuse, Masuzu blackmails him into becoming her boyfriend in name only. News spreads fast within the school of the new couple and Eita's childhood friend Chiwa Harusaki begins to confront Masuzu for Eita's affections.

First impression:
This is way too familiar. Eita doesn't want to love even if he shows he has some interest. Something prevents him from doing so (medical school?...is there something with Chiwa as her being able to run was a surprise?). He even has/had chuunibyou. We got a childhood friend, a girl who is a bit evil and doesn't shun using dirty tactics to get her way and there are even more girls coming who want to be his girlfriend. The title of the next episode says that they will form a club....Who else has the feeling that a lot of previous anime series have been combined to form this series??
It can be good if the writers are able to prevent the biggest problem of these kind of series: trying to go for an open end with episodes which don't give the feeling that the girls are interesting enough. Let's hope that they can connect the girls in a good way like Tomodachi ga sukunai did and get one girl to be his girlfriend in the end. Otherwise i fear this series will be one in a long row of average anime series.

I'm now guessing that the Chuunibyou type of anime has now made a big hit ever since that moebloob series aired. although I get this feeling that this will end up being your stock anime for this season. I mean not only is the chuuni-mode hanging around there, but it also feels a bit like Mayoi Chicken here as well with the blackmailing bit.

In any case since there isn't much to watch this season I feel like it might be something just to kill time beofre something good happens. Let alone if this series will get ineresting by doing something interesting though.


So Chiwa's history is revealed. To hear about her condition and why she may not run makes it pretty clear why Eita wants to go to medical. Masuzu clearly understands the feelings between Chiwa and Eita even if they both don't see it. Masuzu is one mean girl. She is manipulating everything without any restriction as it seems. However she did seem curious about Chiwa's condition..maybe she'll do something we don't expect to help out.


This is starting to feel a bit awkward: Chiwa and Eita both don't realize they like each other. Masuzu knows it but doesn't want to let Eita go or help them so it seems. The last girl may be the one who will get it all going.
Some things in this episode were very good: the little "skit" and of course the history of why Eita wants to be a doctor (even though he doesn't realize what Chiwa means to him). It all felt a bit familiar though with Chuunibyou and other series...

It's annoying.
I think Mazuzu likes Ei-kun.

and then a new character came it's like girls are all-over him.. but he's not interested at all I think he likes his childhood friend

Saeko brings a new level of awesome to this show.

Addressing Ai-chan as "Tsun girl" and "Dere girl" both.

Made even better by Ai-chan responding separately, (And appropriately!) to each! LOL


Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru (or OreShura for short) is based on an ongoing light novel of the same name. Eita Kidou is a high school student who has the dream of attending medical school. As a result of his dream as well as family issues, he attempts to avoid the typical high school student social and romance life. Unfortunately, this doesn't last long when Mazusu Natsukawa, the most beautiful girl in school suddenly makes him her boyfriend. Of course, while this is against Eita's personal will, the catch is the two attempt to be a fake couple in order to maintain peaceful high school lives. However, matters only get more complicated when childhood friends get involved. OreShura premiered during the Winter 2012/2013 anime season and was simulcasted by CrunchyRoll.

OreShura is a very simple title that utilizes a generic romantic comedy setup: high school male, most attractive female, and childhood friend(s). What makes this how different? It attempts to put a small twist in that the female lead is not interested in the guy except not in a tsundere manner. Unfortunately, this concept falls apart pretty quickly and turns into a typical harem title as more and more girls are introduced who are also in love with our "unfortunate" male protagonist. The Jojo's Bizarre Adventure references are amusing but not enough to really carry the show. The use of chuunibyou syndrome as blackmail also came one season too late as the anime community had just been exposed to Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! just last season, effectively rendering this tactic unimpressive even though OreShura came first novel wise (though only by a few months). That said, assuming OreShura came first, the show is not really special. The character personalities are certainly more fascinating and engaging than your typical romantic comedy series but the shallow back story leaves much to be desired. The show touched on a number of "traumatic" pasts for various characters yet did mostly telling rather than showing. Had it shown, I can guarantee the series would be far more engaging and worthwhile. Conclusion wise, the show falls into a rather generic harem trap: trying a harem end. Not to mention that the episode ends rather abruptly.

Art is quite interesting, almost pastel like. Details leave much to be desired and character designs are okay but certainly colorful in more ways than one. Animation is by A-1 Pictures and like all other shows this past season by A-1 Pictures, OreShura suffered a similar quality drop from this studio. Animation is generally basic to begin with so the quality drop isn't as noticeable but way too many still shots with characters just mouthing away.

OP/ED are catchy, especially the OP. Not necessarily a long term song but addicting. Background music and sound effects are average. Seiyuu is decent for the title. A little unimpressed with Yukari Tamura though since I was hoping she would show us some mixed personalities rather than a monotonic sadist all the way through.

Enjoyment? The series started off mildly entertaining and the comedy was definitely there. However, it felt that at some point in the middle of the series, the show lost all potential impact it had, likely due to degrading to your generic harem romantic comedy. As said before, Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! is certainly a recommendation that is basically on part with this show. If you want a real romantic comedy, you should have been watching Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo this season instead or even Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai.

Overall, Jojo references are fun reasons to watch this show but not really worth sitting through 13 episodes to only get a few references every now and then. May as well go watch the actual 2 cour series that just finished. Certainly not a disappointing title, but leaves many asking the question of "so what?"

Preliminary Score: 7/10
Final Score: 5/10
