It's mediocre. Has one good heroine and she's quite worth it though.

It's the most generic entry in an overdone sub-genre of light novels.

It might make a good time-capsule for what was popular in these times.

If the Harem MC isn't smart enough to maneuver himself out of a sexual situation rather than just running away I may tolerate it cause that's what happens in harem. But if it also happens to be a power fantasy for anythIng that's not sexual it starts to lose me. This show had both with an OP MC and everything.
Also he's literally Kirito with purple hair, Fucking A-1 Pictures.
Girls are great though

This. Stop listening to overly-vocal retards and form your own opinion. Though like anon said, the heroine is slightly better unlike a certain violent cunt.
>>
>>152443398
Only if you're Digibro's cocksucker. Asterisk is better than most average battle academy harems.
>>
>>152443917
>Average girls
>Boring fights
Nah, it was just two seasons of the same garbage we get. Wasn't as bad as Bahamut but still average.

Rakudai at least decided to put its focus on the fights which is what the "battle" in battle harem should focus on.

Compared to battle harems from the past 2 years, Asterisk is the worst.

Antimagic > World Break > Rakudai > Bahamut > Hundred > Absolute Duo > Kuusen > Fafnir > Isuca > HxH > Asterisk

>>152444066
I'd easily put Bahamut as the worst.

It's not bad, but it's not great either. Speaking objectively it's average and in some ways generic battle academy done fun. The premise is battle entertainment and you get exactly that.

The main girl happens to be a very decent character, best girl, and HOT. If nothing else, do it for her.
>>
>>152445315

Why you guys can't accept that she is just an walking tsundere archtype and not a proper character, not even her main objective makes any sense

It's not even that bad compared to other battle harems, particularly ones from that certain winter season. Decent fights + animation, and girls. One of the things I don't like it is the MC(most harem MCs are shit though, the "attempt" at being serious/plot(most of them are guilty of this) and the academy setting, but other than that, it's an otherwise enjoyable yet forgettable entry into the battle harem genre.
>>
It's ok, nothing special.
>>
It's only hated because Digicuck memed the fuck out of it.
>>
>>152443398
I watched the whole thing. It was aggressively mediocre. It shoved in your face how decidedly mediocre it was the entire time. Claudia was the best part and she got virtually 0 screentime in the second season.

Rakudai was even worse
>>
>>152443917
This

The production values are good
The animation and OST are nice
>>
>>152443398
It had a god tier OST, the girls were nice and it had above average production for the genre.

It was just the unfortunate victim of a shit posting war between it and rakudai which didn't have all that much in common past the first episode.
>>
>>152443398
Not at all. It was decent and, if compared to other battle harems that have come out in the last five years, it's pretty good.
>>
>>152443398
Other than the OST there was nothing redeemable about this show and I can listen to the OST separately if I want to so that barely counts

No, it very watchable. There is a ton of worse shows out there. Plot is straight forward and several of the fights have good action and directing. And with the budget A-1 used, it all looks nice and is easy on the eyes. At the least it's worth it for Julis and Kirin.

Also, WAITING FOR THE RAIN.

Imo it tried to be what it's not, which is a gateway anime but IMO came on way too strong. I didn't think the show was very good but it was fun to watch at least.

I'll add that the end of the second season teases a potentially interesting third season plotwise. And fat Sugita is one of the worst villain ever made.

Only LN battle harems thankfully.

Okiura's style is so off but at least he has good taste in girls
>>
>>152443450
Absolutely the best.

On a side note, I'm sick as fuck of beta MCs these days. Why can't we have more protags like Rance or Yuji Kazami without it necessarily being an ecchi? Fuck the current protags of the industry.

>>152443738

speaking of Stella

I got wound to finally downloading the show and, well the HS release was kind of quite really awful. Is there any other release out there that are watchable?

It was trash but the girls were cute enough and had variety. Super bland though. At least the Bahamut girls had personality.

Rakudai was even worse, but I liked it more because the romance actually progressed.

Considering I already forgot about the show? Probably not because I then I would have remembered that it was really ass.

So I guess it's second worst thing, it's incredibly forgettable.
Oh but I do remember Rasmus Faber. God bless him.

MC isn't that bad , not more than most harems I've seen. He's not a wimp, a fatty, a beta, or a pretender. He's confident, competent, has a pretty non-nonchalant attitude, and isn't afraid to head pat girls. He's kind of bland though, but it's still better than most other MCs within in same genre.
>>
>>152448629
>No, it very watchable. There is a ton of worse shows out there.
This. Bahamut practically put me to sleep with their fights and every episode was a chore to get through.
