Whose seen it? I like it, it's pretty cool! For once a Shana Clone that isn't annoying and overly violent. For the most part she acts completely reasonable, too considering the random things her Love Interest is doing. And I love Soushi, he's so adorable. The Bishie Sparkles are hilarious. I'm interested to see where this series is going.
Also, add tropes to the Inu X Boku SS page, it's brand new.

I've checked it out, but one episode's too early tell if this super rare Tsundere character will regress to the usual pattern or stay and grow as this rather refreshing breath of fresh air we see in episode 1, but I certainly hope for the latter.
Along with Kill Me Baby, this is in danger of getting dropped for me.
Gotta say, got quite a few laughs from the character dynamics.
The usage of shoujo art style and male lead, combined with this very shonen female lead and plot type, is the most interesting about it.
The first episode was okay. Not really anything more than that. I'll see where this goes.
Why does the anime have an entirely separate page? There's one for the manga already, why aren't we just adding to that like we do for everything else?
Just watched episode 1.
That girl and her dog are really strange people. In his case it's probably because of the type of... person he is, while in her case it's just too much cynicism. Let's hope she "defrosts" too.
House of monsters/ayakashi is interesting though.
There is? Just merge them then. Or I'll do it later.

I would, but I have no idea how to make redirects work (every time I try, I somehow break it.) If someone could do that, I'll move all the tropes to the proper page.
ETA: Nevermind, I got it. Merged and redirected.

Thanks, good job.
I was greatly amused by the Ignored Love Epiphany near the beginning of the episode. This show is really charming. I admit, I wasn't planning on watching it, but I'm glad I picked it up.
Man, Ririchiyo and Karuta are cute. While the rest are funny in their own way.
This show just became weird.
Inu X Boku 5: The new character is amazing. The world is made up of two kinds of people: sadists and masochists!
Karuta is now officially harbinger of Fetish Fuel, and next episode will have lots of her. Damn, and I thought I could resist the Hana Kana effect for this show.
I'm slowly catching up to this show. The Zange ED was just... damn.
Episode 6: Where Karuta continues being unbelievably adora-cute. Dammit, Kana Hanazawa, how come you voice a lot of my favorite female characters?
Really, Watanuki and Karuta are sweet. It's a good thing Ririchiyo started hanging out with them.
Btw, Ririchiyo x Karuta is now my OTP.
Up to episode 11 now. Is it just me, or is this anime ridiculously emotional? For some reason, I react far more than I should if I think about it.
I like most characters, especially Riri and Karuta. The latter is one of those Cloudcuckoolanders who actually manages to focus on exactly the right things. She's also cute, with a nice voice. Her human form is okay too.
I don't really see Riri as a typical Shana Clone. She's much more along the lines of Shinku, Victorique, Alice, and Dalian. They're all far more subdued than what I would consider a Shana Clone, and more in a class of their own, but maybe that's just me. They don't fit the violent approach of a Shana Clone, especially not Riri. There may be violence, but it's more about kicking shins than the regular assault of the type.
This anime really is emotional. Sentimental, even.
The characters are cool. They're all quirky in their own way and manage to provoke either LOL or HNGGG reactions from me. I could list every character and point out what I like about each one but eh.
Riri, a Shana Clone? Hell no. She's more along the lines of the examples you've stated (which I reckon can become a trope if it becomes more prevalent). I'd like to say that Ririchiyo is my favorite of these "Subdued Shana Clones" so far.
EDIT: Also, the OP is great both animation- and audio-wise.

I'm noticing two things about this show.
A) The "twist" there at the end could literally be seen from space.
B) It's actually a pretty textbook case of Male Gaze in the technical sense.
What twist are you refering to?
The twist of who really was exchanging letters with Ririchiyo is pretty obvious, the kicker is far sillier though. The only reason Kagerou didn't write the letters himself wasn't that he didn't care about Ririchiyo, he is too prideful to exchange handwritten letters because his handwriting sucks.

I actually really liked that little tidbit. Every time you think he's just an irredeemable imbecile, he does something to show he's really not all that bad a guy. Just a nutcase.
Kagerou is my favorite character and really, if I were insane enough, I'd go shipping Ririchiyo X Kagerou.
I already do.
