NEVER make a deal with a wet goddess you've only just met. That's a lesson Ryosuke Kaga learns the hard way when he foolishly agrees to let Lisara Restole use some of his "essence" to stay in this world. Because despite her smoking hot appearance, Lisara's actually a Shinigami, a Goddess of Death. However, she DOESN'T steal years off his life like any decent Shinigami would do. Oh no, instead she sucks him dry of something much more perverse by leeching off his lecherous spirit and draining his ability to enjoy... er... the things that teenage boys normally spend most of their time thinking about! And now that he's been de-debased and de-debauched by her un-dirty trick, the poor regenerated degenerate's only hope of getting his licentiousness renewed is to join the queen of mental-clean on her quest, since when she leaves our mortal plane he regains his normal immorality! But the termination of the probation of his reprobation isn't guaranteed, because Goddesses of Death can be really harsh mistresses and it's going to be anything but easy to go back to being sleazy!

"Dakara Boku Wa" Starts off with this strange perverted Open minded boy walking around with his childhood friend. He is very known at his school for being a pervert, and many dislike him.
Basically They waste your time with Pointless half Hentai Crap for the first 6 episodes. Episode 1, you get the real point of the show and the direction it should be heading into. Then you hit episode 2, and you have a Pervert who has this strange ability to regain his power through getting aroused.

On top of that through the rest of 3-6 they keep throwing Hentai-Like events at you, and slowly introducing read more

If you're looking for an ecchi show, one that's filled with fan-service, one that has a perverted teen in his puberty years thinking about lewd thoughts, or a High School DxD clone, then look no further. So, I Can't Play H (also known Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai) is a series about a group of breasts with a perverted protagonist who makes the deal of his short life with a beautiful Shinigami, or in English terms, a grim reaper during a wet and rainy night.

~ The Deal

Or maybe known as the story. Well, the overall tone of the story is predictable and filled with read more

Boku-H is a perfect example of what ecchi harem shows are about, and in this review, I am here to explain why our standards of appreciation must be adjusted to account for what actually makes these types of shows enjoyable.

By the normal standards of grading entertainment, we usually define quality entertainment as intelligent in some way. Intelligent design for entertainment usually is produced through a well-thought out story and an interesting cast that has thought provoking development. Naturally, it is very easy to dismiss Boku-H as being a mediocre show when it does in fact have an uninspired story that feels rushed and read more

The power of boners is stronger.

The Short Version:
(+)The art is actually pretty good.
(+)Harem with a plot, a weak plot, but still a plot.
(-)If you’re not here for the tits you’re in for a bad time.
(-)The soundtrack is really unremarkable.
(-)You can point at the characters and say, “You are this archtype and nothing else.”

The Story (5/10): The story for this show is more than I was expecting given this is an ecchi-harem show, it starts off with a very honest MC who, when he’s heading home, suddenly meets a stunning red headed beauty. Who basically says hi by stabbing him in the chest with a sword. read more

The lead males are very similar. They are shameless perverts, very honest, and can be very manly when the situation calls for it.

The lead females are also similar with respect to their insecurities. They also have a similar nobility background.

There is also the fact that the leads in both anime are bound by contracts.

Anime: Omamori Himari

Both have the same school, magic, supernatural and ecchi genres.

Both muchachos (male lead) have childhood friends who literally takes care of them.

Both have the same situation where the a mysterious magical girl approaches the muchacho (male lead).

Both have the same members of the muchacho's harem whom would at first be the enemy before warming up to the muchacho.


The chiquita (female lead) in one anime is a tsundere while the other chiquita (female lead) from another anime is a tease.

The chiquita (female lead) in one anime treats the muchacho  read more

Blue pill can be expensive sometimes, just grab a blue comedy anime as a stimulant. Will only cost you some brain cells, effects aren't 100% assured.
