World’s End Harem Episode 10 proved that this show just does not give a damn about following normal show constraints, such as making sense and being good. Let’s follow another outing to the depths of hell with this review!
World’s End Harem Episode 10 Overview
World’s End Harem or Shuumatsu No Harem in original Japanese is an Ecchi, Sci-fi, and Harem anime developed by Studio Gokumi of Tsuredure Children fame, alongside AXsiZ, which is known for shows like Seiren. The anime is based on a manga of the same name written by Kotaro Shono and LINK. This episode is also known as Shuumatsu no Harem Episode 10.
The series is directed by Nobuta Yuu, who has previously been involved with the productions of Bokura No and High School Fleet.

World’s End Harem Episode 10 Review- Why Would You Do This
While the entirety of the review of the previous episode was spent describing with incredible detail how bad that episode, and by extension, the entire show was. However, there was one thing at the end that we couldn’t discuss due to the spoiler rule, and it was the terrorist attack at the end. That was something that not only came out of nowhere but made sense in the show’s universe. It was an event that could have resulted in a change of direction for the show and could have led it into a much better direction.
Naturally, since this is a terrible show that doesn’t care about telling a good story, all the good that could have come with that attack was undone as soon as the episode started. There were so many possibilities with Doi having to learn that he wasn’t the only guy left in the world the hard way, but the show took the easy way out again, and nothing changed. Doi remains an idiot who has been manipulated and coerced into being a sex-crazed maniac, and Reito still has nothing to do.
While what the show wanted to do with Doi, building him from the ground up as an antagonist while forgetting all his morals, is a good idea and generally well done, that has resulted in the show spending more time on him having sex with girls than the main protagonist, Reito, received in the whole season. Not only was the Reito and the MK Virus story treated as a minor subplot, but Doi also came across as an idiot in his own story. Are we supposed to take him seriously as an antagonist when he got taken advantage of this easily?
The show is also not very good at twists and surprises, as anybody with a functioning brain and a little bit of anime knowledge could have seen the UW being evil coming from a mile away. Again, this is not a bad plot point at all, as “man vs the machine” is a trope done successfully by many shows in the past. However, the show hasn’t explored that dynamic very well, and Reito Mizuhara is not someone who looks like he can take on an entire shadow government. He isn’t developed or smart enough to do anything about what’s happening around him.
Overall, we learned nothing new in World’s End Harem Episode 10. The show just went through the motions and put out an episode that had a lot of events, but it was everything that the show already foreshadowed a while back, so nobody was surprised. Reito is still doing nothing, Doi is still dumb, and both of them need a serious new direction. There’s just one problem with that- there is barely any time left. Is this popular enough to earn a second season? Because it certainly isn’t good enough.
World’s End Harem Episode 10 wasn’t the show’s worst episode, but that’s not a high bar to clear. There were some plot reveals that everyone saw coming, and no one was surprised.
