"People like you are better of dead!"- That's one of my favorite lines in shuffle!.Shuffle! is an anime series with 24 episodes on season one and 12 episodes on season 2 which I have been watching for the past 3 days.
The story of this anime is mainly about a boy named Rin with 5 lovers: a princess of the gods, a princes demon, an artificial life form , and 2 humans. But before I tell the story let me introduce the main characters......
Lisianthus - also known as Shia..She's the princess of the gods, daughter of Eustoma...
Nerine -was also called rin.. the princess of the demon world, daughter of Forbesii...the one with the biggest breast of the 5.(it's a description in the story.. proof the bonus chapter of season 2Kaede said that)
Asa Shigure - a childhood friend of rin.. she always hit rin at his back.. she has a secret affection to Rin...she was also the ONE Rin CHOSE.
Kareha- friend of Rin, Kaede,and Asa.. in the last part she said she has also an affection for Rin. (but i doubt it).
Mayumi Thyme - friend of Rin, Kaede etc.. the flat chested girl others call her..
Itsuki Midoriba - bestfriend of Rin Nadeshiko Benibara - teacher of Rin and others.
Eustoma - father of Shia.. king of the gods. Forbesii - king of the demons..a gentleman timid like his daughter Nerine
Ama Shigure - the mother of Asa, in the last part of the story it was revealed that she was the first experiment of Life.
Lycoris - clone sister of Nerine.
Kikyou - also known as the reversed Shia .twin sister of shia but is living within shia.
NOTE: the world of makai(gods) , shin(demons), and humans are connected by a gate portal so don't be surprised if there are god or demons int the story.The humans also is freely communicating and making business with the other races
The story starts in Kaede-sama's house as Kaede-sama waking Rin-sama. Kaede-sama was
taking care of Rin-sama in the past years even though Rin-sama is only like their bedspacer or
what you call it. Kaede-sama's father leave the house for few months and Rin was in charge to
take care of Kaede and of the house. The two were alone in that house..(how fascinating..i wish i
was like that independent..)They are both 3rd year highschool at Verbana Academy. Then one
day 2 new neighbors came..All in that place ( I didn't remember the name of the town) especially
the boys of the 3rd year which is the classmates of Rin in the Verbana Academy because that
class will be the class of this new migrants and it's also rumored that they're cute and hot.
Anyway the day of arrival of the new members of the community came.. To the dismay of the
boys in Rin's class no hot or cute girls entered they're class but two adult man came.They are
looking for Rin.... and when they had found him they told him that he was the one chosen to
marry their daughter...9but he must only choose only one.......Rin and the entire class was
shocked by this especially Kaede..she even fainted..after the atmosphere calmed. the 2 man
introduced theirselves the first one was Eustoma..he was the King of the Makai race(gods).. then
the second one was Forbesii... the king of shin(demon race)..then their daughters showed up
afterwards.. before i forget their daughters was seen and interacted by Rin before they met at
the school.. Shia..was seen by Rin in the department store buying meat.. and even asked him
which to buy the big one or the small one.. Nerine was seen by Rin at the playground where she
was singing in the seesaw...they both said his name even though he didn't know them but he
didn't payed attention to this.anyway back to my story..Rin recognized them easily..anyway
because they were princesses of their race if Rin marries Shia he will become a god and if he
marries Nerine he will become Satan..anyway that was the first two episodes.The first two
episodes was introduction to the story.The third episode is about why nerine and shia chose
Rin......Shia's reason was Rin's kindness to her...in the past when Shia was only little she went to
the world because his dad has a business in the human world..she comes with her father..but
because of her fondness to the surroundings she was lost.. she was found by Rin and was
returned by him to her father safely..Nerine's reason was almost the same as Shia.. in the past
she was also lost in the human world and was found by Rin in the playground crying..the same
playground where he meet her first singing in the present. he comforted him and he lead her to
her father safely...because of that she had been looking forward that they'll meet again..and they
had meet again in the present..anyway in this epsiode.. Primula also showed up.. Rin saw her at
the arcade trying to get the cat stuff toy in the Ufo catcher...because he was kind he helped her
but to his surprise Primula hugged him and never let go of him.. he went home with Primula
embracing him up to his house..in the house Nerine was amazed to see Primula there.. because
Primula has no pemission to go to the Human world. anyway Primula is like a little sister to
Nerine..the episodes 3-6 are about the events Summer is almost here, but first the students
must go through their final exams. While everyone is studying, Sia gets some help from Rin,
even though it's not much. .During the time when Rin and his classmates are cleaning their
classroom, Nerine gets angry at a couple of guys bad-mouthing Rin and manages to nearly blow
up the gym. Later, when a picnic is planned where everyone makes their own food to eat, Nerine
must get help from Asa in order to learn how to cook. But she only mastered one recipe
omellete.but in the story it looked very tasty.i think it's so delicious..With the ever-increasing
presence of Nerine and Sia in Rin's life, Kaede is beginning to feel left out. When Kaede comes
down with a cold, she tries to push herself so as not to be so much of a bother to Rin. With Rin
and Kaede going to school so often, Primula is starting to miss Rin so one day she comes to school
unanncounced, though eventually leaves with some coaxing by Rin. Later, it is decided that
Primula needs some undergarments she is lacking and thus Rin and the rest of the girls go out to
help Primula with this problem. During their outing, Rin buys Primula a new cat doll. And
because of that Primula smiled for the first time.. The episodes 7 -8 is about the events .. when a
popular boy confesses to Asa, she's finding it hard to accept his feelings because she is
confused.In this episodes also Asa first showed her affection to Rin. After Asa gets injured during
PE, Rin walks her home and they're able to grow closer together.And the next day Asa gave back
the gift the popular guy gave on his confession.(OUCH!) Shia, inspired by the horoscope she had
read.. made the first move to move one step forward through asking Rin into a DATE!.trusting
her panties (i didn't remember the first word before the panties .. the parties for her are like
lucky charms.).but her plans wasn't that succesful..but ended with her and Rin more closer.
Episodes 9-10 is about their(rin,kaede nerine etc..) outing to the beach.but something happened
to Shia and Rin while they were sleeping in the "salbabida" that was sort of a bed where the two
is sleeping.. (i'm sorry i didn't know it's english counter part).They were swept out into the
middle of the sea and was stranded in a deserted island. Many things happened on that
island..like Rin and Shia kissed.but afterwards they were found by the others and come to think
of it that it was the same island they were only sweptn to the other side of the island..After what
happened at the beach, rumors start flying around that Rin and Sia are to be wed. As emotions
start flaring up, Rin made the move and told the others the real story..In here you'll really see
that Asa and Kaede has an affection for Rin..Episode 11 wasn't that important it's about Mayumi
eating at the restaurant Kareha works at, though forgets her wallet, so she must work off her
debt for the day. During this time, Rin's teacher is finding it difficult to find a good man to be
with. Episode 12- 13 starts the drama part..it's about Primula's real identity..she became very ill
and was subjected to return her to the demon world...because of this Eustoma and Forbesii
confesses the truth to Rin. Primula's and artificial life form made for the sake of studying Life.. if
Primula's condition will not improve soon her learned emotions in the human world will be
permanently erased......Episode 14 is about the revelation of Nerine..After Nerine ran to the
nearby park, she tells Rin about the past she had with her clone Lycoris. the second artificial life
form made for the study of life..and that lycoris was the one he met 8 yrs ago..the girl he
saved..and that lycoris saved her life by giving her life force and how it all ties in with Primula.
Later, after Asa collapsed at Kaede's house, Rin goes to see her at her own home where Asa tells
him some of her own past. that she was a sickly child back then until now..and that she had
commited a very serious crime to her mother when she was small.. blaming all her sufferings to
her mother.Episode 15 is about Rin ,encouraged by Asa, going to the demon world along with
Kaede and Nerine and Shia . Primula's life was saved miraculously with the help of Lycoris..
Afterwards Primula was returned to the human world and was removed from being an
experiment.Episode 16 is about Kikyo.. the sister of Shia within her..While Rin is starting to
spend more time with Asa, Sia is starting to feel that she's being left out. With no where else to
turn, her other more assertive self surfaces and asks Rin out on a date. And on this date Sia
through Kikyo figured out that Rin has someone he really likes. Episode 18 is about Sia regaining
herself again and telling him that even he has someone in his heart she will still love him.Episode
18 is about Rin going out on a date at an amusement park targeted towards couples which is
planned by Itsuki, Mayumi, Nerine and Sia so that Rin would voice how he feels towards Asa.
but the date wasn't that successful he even hurted Asa's feelings.. Episode 19 is one of the
saddest parts of the story. it's about Rin forgetting about Kaede because of Asa..Kaede and Rin's
past was also revealed in here.. When they were young Kaede's mother died together with the
parents of Rin..losing Kaede's will to live she became a lifeless human..because of that Rin said to
her that he was the reason of their deaths..Upon hearing this Kaede moved and choked
Rin..After that she made his life a living hell.her saying "PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE BETTER OF
DEAD!".. despising him,mocking him, destroying all hsi things..but Rin endured this..as years
passed Kaede went inside Rin's room to destroy his boat model.upon finishing destroying it she
had found a picture with her mother and Rin's parents.. in it's back a letter..she read it..and
understood that she is the reason for their deaths..Rin arriving fastly went to get the picture
away from Kaede's hands.then Kaede ran fastly.Rin chased her.Rin catching her, Kaede told him
I'm Sorry while crying....then that is why Kaede is serving Rin up to know.. Episode 20 is about
Kaede attacking Asa as she went to Kaede's house with Rin..saying again PEOPLE LIKE YOU
ARE BETTER OF DEAD!.because of this Asa suffered another attack which caused for her to be
hostpitalized.. In this episode also Rin decided to leave the house of Kaede..Kaede and Primula
upon hearing it was shocked.. It is also for me the saddest part of the anime series. In Episode 21
Kaede has completely shut herself off from everyone, trying to think on what to do next. Before
long, Primula finds that Kaede is gone and Primula runs to Rin to inform him. During her outing,
she meets Asa and they have a talk about their feelings for Rin.In here Kaede confesses to Asa
that she is serving Rin not because of the past but because she love him...she also aske apology
from Asa together with a request that Asa will not forbid her to love him.. In episode 22 Rin has
packed up all his things and has already found a cheap apartment to move into. On the day of the
move, several of his friends come over and help him out. In episode 23 after Asa collapses once
more, she's rushed to the hospital, though the doctors cannot do much to improve her condition.
Asa's mother Ama reveals to Rin a deep dark secret about her past. She told him that she was a
demon and she was the first experiment for the research about life.. thought by the others that
she was dead when the lab exploded. She was transported to the human world. and Asa's father
found her..she gave birth to Asa normally Asa is a human.. but she inherited her weak body and
his powers....and that this powers are the ones causing this attacks to Asa. because she's only
human and her weak body can't be a container of this enormous power..and that the only
solution for Asa to be saved is to use her magic powers....which Asa promised to herself that she
will not use...Upon hearing this Rin instantly went to Asa and beg her to use it but she refused...
Desperate Rin thought of killing himself so that it will trigger Asa to use her magic..The last
episode is episode 24...in here Asa escapes from the hospital and goes to the spot where Rin first
confessed to her. Before long, Rin finds her on the rooftop where he confessed his love for Asa
.There he begged Asa to use her powers but she refused.. Rin, prepared to do anything to save
Asa executes his last resort to kill himself through cutting his artery in his right hand...Upon
seeing Rin dying unintentionally Asa used it to save him.....the next day arrived.......they(Rin,
Kaede etc.) all went to school... after class they went to the rooftop where they ate their lunch
