Welcome to Invaders of the Rokujyōma!? discussion thread.
Come here to chat about the latest episodes, the characters, plot, or the series in general.
Rokujyōma no Shinryakusha!? (六畳間の侵略者!?)

Producer: SILVER LINK
Type: Based on a Light Novel
Genres & Themes: comedy, romance, supernatural, harem

Release Date: July 11

Plot: Due to his family’s financial circumstances, young Koutarou is forced to live in a small apartment (Rokujouma means 6-tatami, which is about 99 square feet) on a budget of 5000 yen a month (~$55US). On the plus side, he lives rent free, but on the minus side, that’s because room 106 of Corona Apartments is cursed. As is the norm in these supernatural high school comedies, the ghost is a cute young girl, and hijinks ensue when she tries to drive him out. Between the haunting, Koutarou’s nosy neighbors, and a self-styled magical girls flying to the unneeded rescue, there’s way too much for the impoverished young man to handle.

Pilot was break neck fast on the set up. Maybe a bit to fast? Could be fun comedy for the season as it seems to spoof harem an many of the girl anime tropes.

@Marshal Victory:

This harem remind me of Is this a Zombie? with its blend of different girls of genre, science, magic, and supernatural. Plus, I was reminded of Nanana's Buried Treasure. The pilot didn't stood out to me as much. Hopefully, it's not so generic like other harem shows I watched. I had hopes when I saw the hero being an archaeologist. I never seen a bookworm let alone an archaeologist as a harem lead. Though, it seems it's not like that.

I couldn't enjoy If Her Flag Breaks. Brynhildr in the Darkness made it my best harem show for 2014, doing something crazy.

2nd episode was bit better. It had few more laughs for me an I am liking the characters more. Favorite so far is the earth girl an the cosplay/ magic girl.

@Marshal Victory:

I think I might drop Blade Dance for being too generic and saturated with T & A with no good plot, but I hang in there for 3 episodes. If you're going to keep watching, I'll bump the discussion. I found this harem show more tolerable and funner to watch. I thought he had more than 4 girls in his harem when I watched the OP>

Seems like he is close with "Nanana" ghost girl. I'm not good with names.

3rd episode was good. So shows building a bit as it goes an getter better. While its light an funny its got a sub/ main plot that it hints at. Tho at the very least its watchable an has some decent sight gags here an there.

@takashichea: Sorry for late response um ya plan to keep on Blade Dance for few more. To see if it develops into something above average or not.

@Marshal Victory:

It's all right. Sometimes, I reply late because I'm not watching the episodes not early enough. Too much Anime Vice's mod work and work outside of the site keeps me from peacefully watching the new shows. I'm giving it the Three Strikes thing.

I find this show more enjoyable than Blade Dance. I know folks started to hate harem shows especially newer ones since they are so similar and generic with some gimmick. It's like the mech show issue too with Argevollen. I try not to think too much. Otherwise, I won't enjoy watching anime.

@takashichea: Ya caching on to the main story behind the subplot about the room? Remember 1st episode he got hurt had that vision? Then if ya add what he thought he saw in the knitting club room with what happened in the 3rd episode, during the race with the magic girl healing the knitting club president we a really long run on sentence! An where the plot will go me thinks.

I agree one can over analyze a show to the point of no fun. For me thats when we get to focused on what this show or that episode is like to other anime shows. Not to say I do not enjoy doing the silly gene combo names in a anime to form a sentence. Cause I do. But if one focuses to much on what something is like then they have less time to enjoy something for what it is during the show. Um hopefully that made some sense.

@Marshal Victory:

Oh yeah that vision in episode 1. I actually forgot about it. This anime had plot. I thought it was just random comedic fight over a room. Looking at the OP song, they focus on four girls. I thought the land lady and knitting club president were part of his harem.

Edit:

I agree with the over analyzing thing that makes anime less enjoyable.
