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

Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai is one hell of a surprise.

Story: 6.5/10
It starts off really really poor, nearly utter nonsense. It's atrocious in every level and is full of plot holes everywhere. Episodes 1-6 are a complete mess and pretty much typical filler, except poorly written. But the entire thing turns around on Episode 7, if you make it through that torture. The story gets into its juicy, well-written parts and become pretty damn good, with satisfying action and accompanying romance to the point where you wonder if its still the same anime as the first few episodes.

Art: 6/10
Nothing too superb or remarkable, read more

This anime is a good representation of what an Ecchi/harem anime should be, is not generic and it is actually really enjoyable to watch and really has a good story to follow.

Is about a guy that one day sees a beautiful redhead in front of his house, this is where all begins, he invites her to enter, makes a temporal deal with him because she is a Shinigami but she doesn't drain his life but drains his pervert ''powers'' which he has a control on them and tells him that he only has a month of life and she will help him find the person 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

Anime: Zero no Tsukaima
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.

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.
