This is just mindless, fun entertainment.

Alright so the story of To Love Ru is about a boy name Yuuki Rito who gropes a pink-haired alien name Lala who is the princess of Deviluke. After trying to confess his feelings to a girl, Haruna Sairenji, he accidentally confesses to Lala and says to him "Lets get married". From there on Rito tries to get out of the relationship with Lala, but has other things in his way that actually makes him closer to her. The plot does get more of a serious tone towards the end of the anime, but overall it's just a fun anime.

Story: Pretty much all filler. Each episode stands alone except the ending and they don't really play off of each other. The series strays way too far from the Manga and doesn't explore the main parts where you see many characters develop themselves. I understand that the Manga has stories that end in one chapter and expansion is necessary to make the Anime but they could've handled it better. A similar style to the beginning of Full Metal Panic Fumoffu would've been cool where there were two stories split between an episode. Since chapters for To-Love-Ru are short, that would've been a great direction for read more

To LOVE-Ru is a pretty standard harem anime with the usual sickeningly innocent protagonist with unbelievable luck with women falling at his feet. This anime is full of fan service, I mean packed full, there isn't an episode without a decent amount of ecchi scenes. Despite the fan service and dull story it is still a pretty funny and fun to watch anime, with the following continuation to Motto To LOVE-Ru and To LOVE-Ru Darkness being very enjoyable to watch.

What I loved about the To LOVE-Ru series as a whole (all 3 seasons), was the enjoyment. This anime made me laugh but was fun and read more

Well.. Where do I start.. Hmmmm

Well I watched this series due to a suggestion in the recommendations of Rosario + Vampire.. Although the shows are both somewhat similar.. I expected a bit more out of the series.

Let me start with this.. there are to me.. two seasons to this series basically..and the second series starts somewhere around episode 14.. but.. too be quite honest in my opinion.. Episodes 18-24 are basically OVAs that are stuffed in.. I mean.. There is the story of Kyoto the Fire Girl..a entire episode about a show Lala and Rito watch on television.. which had absolutely nothing to do with read more

Recommendations

Both about a guy who is forced into a marriage through a series of crazt events, and both are really funny with lots of comedy and cute girls as lead characters ;3
-Both shows has a alien girl who loves the male protaganist
-Alot of comedy, parody, and development of romance
-To Love-Ru contains abit more fanservice then Haiyore! Nyaruko-san
Both are pure service anime made for your amusement. Yes, there is harem as well as overly jiggly boobs. If you liked Rosario+Vampire, then you'll love Tu-LOVE-Ru, or otherwise. The female lead role both have lovely pink hair.
Very close, both of them have aliens and a lot of ecchi moments with a bit of action.
A normal guy falls inlove with an alien girl. These girls don't know much about the planet Earth so they do some weird things while living at there "lover" place. Even through the guys don't have parents living at there house, so both of these animes are very similar...
Both animes have a female alien coming from out of outer space witch stays with the main protagonist. They also both have amazing technology.
