Synopsis

Ikuhara Takeya is a high school student living a normal life. He is not interested in the commotion around a UFO filled with beautiful alien females that crashed on earth a year ago. The aliens, known as DearS, are deciding to take permanent residence on earth. What no one knows is that these aliens are a slave species whose sole purpose is to serve and please their masters.

One day, Takeya spots a person shivering behind some bushes. This person, Ren, is one of the DearS, and after being saved by Takeya she chooses him as her master. Takeya, who doesn't know about the master-slave relationship of DearS, tries to teach Ren the normal lifestyle of the people on earth, though he constantly fears that Ren is an evil alien who's trying to brainwash him. Ren, however, isn't like other DearS. She is in fact malfunctioning and is being tracked down by their leader. Meanwhile, Takeya begins to learn more about DearS, and a mythical DearS relationship called "Gift" begins to develop between them.

It's a cute little short series animé, similar to Chobits from what I've seen of Chobits, but hey, if you like that sort of thing, DearS does it pretty well. Some of the fanservicey stuff in this is SO over-the-top it's past the point of annoying and more towards the point of amusing, because I don't think they took themselves completely seriously.

So, who should watch this? If you want a relatively light-hearted plot with some situational comedy, sort of your typical high school thing and a fair bit of cuteness and a mild bit of seriousness, this isn't a bad choice. If you're up for read more

DearS is proof, that reading reviews before jumping into a series is a good habit to have. DearS is pretty much generally regarded as "that awful Chobits ripoff" so I went into it with pretty low expectations. I wasn't disappointed.

So, a space ship crash-lands just off the coast of Japan, with 150 humanoid aliens on board. Oh, and they all look like super hot high-schoolers with supernatural abilities and a weirdly submissive nature. (Yep, this means EXACTLY what you think.) The ship is FUBAR, so they are stuck on Earth, but that's no problem, since the humans welcome them with open arms, naturally. I mean, read more

DearS is a combination of a failed Chobits clone (lacking any of the warmth that made that series so endearing) and, depending on your gender, offensive pro-slave rubbish. It's also uneventful, lacking a story and instead containing the same perverted nonsense you've seen before already until the episode count reaches 12-13.

To start with, the premise is beyond dumb. A UFO crashes into Japan, 150 aliens - who happen to be submissive hotties - emerge, and they're welcomed by the world. Because humans are, as we all know, kind and understanding creatures by nature, no attempts were made to capture and experiment on the aliens. It's read more

Takeya Ikuhara was a normal high school boy. He is one of the few having no interest in a space ship that had crashed over a year ago. With Female passengers called DearS. One day he happens upon a naked shivering girl. At first he thought she was just a girl, but then realized she was actually one of the aliens from the ship crash. He takes her home reluctantly. He'd seen one too many sci-fi movies and constantly feared she was going to brain wash him. The next day, he sets her in a closet to hide while he went to school and she read more

Exact same storylines. Don't listen to everyone else, the stories are litterally exact. However, there are some quirks that are different between them: Ren is an Alien in DearS, while Chi is a Robot (Cyborg of sorts) in Chobits. There are other little differences that you'll notice when comparing them, but there's no doubt.. if you liked one of these, you'll definitely like the other.
Sadly I haven`t read the Sora no Otoshimono manga, but judging from the description of it DearS seams very similar to it:
A male protagonist encounters an "angel", later meets a second tsundere-like angel and has an female childhood friend. Though Mitsuki seems to differ from Neneko.
Both are ecchi series.
same ecchi comedy anime. both female leads have this weird sign in their foreheads. they are also both pretty identical in personality and both want to learn earth's way of living.
the similarities between the two are pretty evident if you seen both of them. they both have hot alien chicks they pop out of nowhere and get caught up with a guy. also, both male characters end up having most of the women characters like him.

the plot and genre are what's similar but the characters themselves are pretty different.
clueless airhead alien coming to earth and it seems everyones ok with it
Two weird girls and him..... the same ecchi actions and ideas
