A year after Lala came to Earth, she is all the more determined to make Rito fall for her, putting all her effort into it, even though she knows that Rito actually loves Haruna. Poor Rito will have to face tough times since Lala's younger twin sisters, Nana and Momo, now live in the same house, along with his Rito's reliable sister, Mikan, and Celine.

Fun and trouble await with their other friends from school and the many other characters, with Lala's usually catastrophic inventions, Yami's contract to kill Rito and many pending issues from the first season.

I personally love ''To LOVE-Ru'' and the new Motto To LOVE-Ru. In the first season it's a story about the girl called Lala, which apparently met Yuuki Rito in the washroom. Lala wants to get married to Yuuki due to his kindness from saving her multiple times. However, Motto To LOVE-Ru gets more interesting. They add numerous random scenes per episode. It really isn't a story that relates to each episode, but it's a different way of telling the story. I'm reading the manga on a daily basic. So far it kind of matches up, but not a lot. I recommend this type of anime read more

As a fan of To LOVE-Ru, I didn't enjoy the first season at all. I know it wasn't very faithful to the manga, but the way it was executed left a bad taste in my mouth. However, Motto changed that by following the manga more closely, and the result? An adaption that was enjoyable from start to finish.

If you're familiar with To LOVE-Ru, then you probably know that there's not really a driven plot. Those that are new to TLR (which I'll refer to this series as for the rest of the review), you're not gonna expect much of a story read more

Well prepare yourselves for quite the review. And please note, this is coming from a person who absolutely loves and has completely read and watched every TLR manga and anime to date.

I assume everyone here has already watched the original TLR run so I'll write with references to it.

STORY - 9.5
MTLR takes a different path as opposed to TLR; instead of running in a straight line, the series is now broken into 12 episodes, each episode breaking further into 3 mini-episodes. Knowing this format and the fact that the TLR series doesn't exactly have a very straightforward plot, this option is rather favorable on my read more

Motto to-LOVE-ru returns in effort to appeal to its manga readers on a true adaption series. The first series shortly became its own unique drama totally falling out of favor to its manga supporters and received rather unpleasant favor. Being someone that finished the entire to-LOVE-ru manga, I wanted to see how good this could really amount to being.

In understanding all this, I also already understood that to-LOVE-ru itself is purely a fanservice type show. I didn't expect a "true" story to develop. However, what I did expect is the anime to follow manga chapters in its chronological states. I realize that this may have read more

They're both harem series with multiple types of girls liking the protagonist, who is very unaware of the situaion. Besides that, both of the main character girls are from space, big chested, wear tight space suits and have small helper(s). Both series have ALOT of fanservice as well as a somewhat similar art and story.

like to love ru to sora no otoshimono, they are the second season of a series and both have echi but the main character in to love ru dosn't want a echhi life while the other character wants a echi life
Motto is the second season of To-LOVE-ru. The first seasons were extremely similar, and so are the second seasons. Both contain bad guys that are not exactly evil and have wacky gadgets that can do seemingly anything. And most importantly, they are both about an alien girl forcing her way into the love life of a human boy.
Similar art-style, very fun comedy ecchi and many many fanservice.

You can basically watch from any episode but there is still progression. They are both light-hearted and barely anything serious happens. Both have quite a big cast and are shows that are extremely enjoyable to watch and a good way to pass the time. Motto is a 100x focused more on ecchi—meaning lots of oppai. Nichijou focuses a lot more on over-the-top comedy and situations. In Motto, the cast all know each other, whilst in Nichijou it's just the "daily life" of random high schoolers. The art is much "fluffier" in Nichijou than anything else. Motto contains aliens, strange medicines, Rito's life, while Nichijou is just the daily life of crazy high schoolers.
If you like ecchi you will love both of these awesome anime! The jokes and situations are pretty hilarious. Both have awesome leading protagonists that will keep you entertained for the entire duration.
