As close encounters of the twisted kind between the residents of the planet Develuke (represented primarily by the female members of the royal family) and the inhabitants of Earth (represented mainly by one very exhausted Rito Yuki) continue to escalate, the situation spirals even further out of control. When junior princesses Nana and Momo transferred into Earth School where big sister LaLa can (theoretically) keep an eye on them, things SHOULD be smooth sailing. But when Momo decides she'd like to "supplement" Rito's relationship with LaLa with a little "sisterly love," you know LaLa's not going to waste any time splitting harems. Unfortunately, it's just about that point that Yami, the Golden Darkness, enters the scene with all the subtleness of a supernova, along with an army of possessed high school students! All of which is certain to make Rito's life suck more than a black hole at the family picnic. Unless, of course, a certain semi-demonic princess can apply a little of her Develukean Whoop Ass to exactly that portion of certain other heavenly bodies!

First off, I want to say To LOVE-Ru Darkness is not for everyone.

This show is NOT for people who hate fanservice and/or harems. This show IS for people who love tons of ecchi, harems, and more ecchi. To top it off, To LOVE-Ru Darkness actually has... wait for it... a plot. *Gasp* Really?! Yes, it does. It's not just mindless fanservice (although that's cool too). You should definitely watch this show if ecchi is your thing.

...But you all probably knew that since this is the third season of the To LOVE-Ru series and you've seen the first two seasons (To LOVE-Ru and Motto To LOVE-Ru, read more

There can only be one series that would be considered the forefront of a particular genre that currently gives it its own identity or face; that series in question would be To Love Ru. It has had a rough start in its adaptation to the original source material by not providing a coherent narrative to the manga. Eventually it has made a name for itself for being the aforementioned forefront of Ecchi thanks to the later seasons that are somewhat “reboots” in the pure sense of the word reboot. Now comes To Love Ru Darkness, which is a separate manga that continues the story of read more

- Both have the same genres; Comedy, Harem, Romance, Shounen. With the exception of Ecchi, School, and Sci-fi on To LOVE-Ru Darkness, and Supernatural on KamiNomi Megami-hen.
- Both have main male lead surrounded by lots of females(well, it IS harem anime..)
- Both have a really nice plot, unlike other harem anime.
- There is no action genre, but both of them have some action parts.
- Both anime's art is good.
- Both anime's Opening Theme is good.
- Both are third season, and the third season's female lead is different than the first and second season.
If you like ecchi, if you like gorgeous character designs, if you like comedy, then you would be well served to give these two shows a try.

Both shows fall under the same genres of comedy, romance, school, harem, and ecchi.

Also both shows manage to tastefully mix in light, mild, and entertaining drama. That being said, both shows always prioritize the comedy and ecchi.

I enthusiastically recommend both shows.
