As usual, no spoiler and straight to the merit point of this anime. I hope it will help you decide whether to watch this series or not.
Saenai Heroine No Sodatekata is an anime series that was aired in Jan - Mar 2015.
The main storyline is about a high school boy (Aki Tomoya) who is a hardcore 2D otaku, he want to make a visual novel game. He ask some creators (ilustrator, story writer, etc) that he know to help hime make those visual novel, all of them are girls.

Why you don't want to watch this :
So, our protagonist is just a normal otaku who doesn't have any special ability, he just gathers many talents to fulfill his dream.
The enjoyable part of this series is those people that our protagonist recruit to become his circle team is full set of dere-dere (tsundere, kuudere, yandere), even there is also osananajimi, do we need anything else?
This anime is main story oriented, there is almost no filler here, it is flowing in a steady slow pace but it keeps moving forward in each of its episodes. So, there is no boring episode, each of them contain same proportion of the main story.
Anyway, the characters design and personality are... cliche at it finest... Yeah, you can even tell their dere properties from just their appearance. Despite that, each of them has unique trait that make them cool and interesting in their own way. But keep in mind that cliche thing like this is not memorable, maybe after several weeks you will forgot about the characters face. The main character says for several time that cliche is a proven recipe, so I think all the clichenese in the characters design and personality are done on purpose :) .
Romance? Well, actually the main character (Aki Tomoya) opening all the girls flag nicely, but he friendzoned them all... So, it just end with the girls teasing the main characters here and there T_T
Fanservice in this series is not that much, it is enough... But personally, I hope there is more haha :D .
The artwork is decent for a new anime, not as glossy as some other new anime. Sometime they flash the screen with colorfull draft like those on monogatari series, but it is not that often.
The opening is nice song with also nice video. The song title is Kimi Iro Signal by Luna Haruna.
There will be second season for this anime series but there is not yet further announcement about when it will be aired.
I really have nothing to complain about this anime series, if you interested you better watch it, you won't regret it :)
