Story: Good 7. "Meow"
The plot maybe complicated, but as one watches this anime one will get the idea behind it.
Art: Good 7. "Meow"
The score is for Hanekawa's fanservice.
Sound: Mediocre 5."Purrrr"
Character, Enjoyment, Overall: Good 7. "Meow"
The Hanekawa X Koyomi arc is something that we audience desired for and everyone will agree with me that the 2 would be a purrrrrrrfect match, but it cannot be establish if Koyomi does have any feeling for Hanekawa, enjoyment, pretty good for the fanservice and Koyomi's sacrifice for Hanekawa was cool, but in the end it was Shinbou who did the finishing touch in which we were hoping that it would be Koyomi would used the very long katana thingy on Hanekawa to release her from the cat's curse, so overall the ending was good but not good enough to be given a score higher than 7. HISSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!

Story: Good 7.
Still has the usual plot and violence for grown ups.
Art: Mediocre 5.
Still the same character design, though I would like to see some intense fanservce with the babes including Valment, man, I like FBB who are also Milfs.
Sound: Good 7.
Since I like both opening and closing theme.
Characters, enjoyment, overall: Fair 6.
The character's are still there more better, badder and uglier, which to me makes Koko and her posses' an unlikable character, the enjoyment.........still awesome except I would have wish that Scarecrow would have capture the Hekmatyars. Overall, hummm, if I were this anime's director, Keitaro Motonaga, I would have end it this way:
-After 2 years have pass Koko and Jonah met again, but ignored each other.
-Jonah, being tired of working for an arms dealer and seeing all the chaos happening wanted to leave and was granted, he was awarded with large sums of cash to start over and he was able to go home hoping that his village would have rebuilt itself.
-Jonah came hope and saw his village slowly rebuilding itself and was greeted by the people who recognize him.
- And here the "Pièce de résistance" Jonah (smiling), made a promise that he'll never hold a weapon nor will he kill anyone again.
Overall, such ending would have provide a good ending, which btw this sequel ended stupidly but still entertaining, but hey, that's just me.
BTW: If any spoilers are present, then excuuuuuussssssseeeeeee me. Co'z most of everyone else's review would contain a spoiler or 2, jaz saying, no disrespect.

Art and sound: Mediocre 5.
As usual there is that boob flashing, close up panty shots and close up booty calling that are censored just like from it's previous sequel , so to be able to view this anime without the censored, it's advisable to wait about a 1 year after it's airing, since the links would now show this anime uncensored, but that still depends on the link that one might have access to. Co'z some links still maintains archive anime whose intense ecchi genre are censored. as for the sound, I just don't have any comment about it.
Character and Enjoyment: Fair 6.
Thought, this sequel goes against the Lala X Rito arc with Haruna on the side, it very clear that in this sequel one must now forget the Lala X Rito X Haruna arc and focus on the Momo X Rito arc with Mea on the side. The arc may contradict the usual arc of the 1st season, but here the new arc is not bad at all in fact it was nice that Rito gets to have something different, however I still hate it that Rito still hasn't got the balls to confess his feelings for Haruna.
Now, I do notice that Yami was supposed to be the main character here, but it kind of looks like that what she does is no different from what she usually does from season 2, the only that charge was the amount of aired time she has. It is quiet disappointing that studio Xebec tends to mislead about that character set up, co'z it looks more like that Rito, Momo and Mea are the real main character's here than Yami, besides wasn't this sequel titled "To Love Ru: Darkness?" In which we the audience were expecting that Yami was suppose to be the main protagonist here, but instead a new comer 'Mea" is the one taking the spot light here as the antagonist, other than that nothing much has change about the other characters in this sequel. The enjoyment part is basically revolves around that ecchi and the comedy genre which was usual from season 1 to season 2. But, it was Momo who serves as the driving force of this sequels comedy aspect, thought it was also a disappointment that we the audience never get to see Mea's boss, with that and the chaotic plot I limit it to just 6.
Overall: Poor 3.
It is probably safe to say that the 1st season was better than the 2nd and this 3rd season. Because in the 1st season thought it does share that same usual genre, the executions were different, season 1's plot basically follow an organize scenario while season 2's plot was based on a per episode basis, and in this sequel the plot is on Momo's harem plan for Rito, but generally everything is on Momo. Also, about this sequel's title was a bit misleading co'z on paper it was titled "To Love Ru: Darkness", but it looks like studio Xebec unofficially titled it "To Love Ru 3," now I can't say if the "3" in what we see as the last word for this anime's title is a Japanese katagana symbol for "Ru" or is it actually "3" as in the number 3. Then again who cares? Well, I wish everyone to have a prosperous year for 2013.
Well, the bullets for my Glock 9 have just arrive we'll be doing some aerial shooting once the clock hits 12 midnight to celebrate 2013, man I wish I could use it to shoot that MAL user that pisses me off, if I can locate him. If that SOB is reading this you know who you are. read more

Story: Good 7 .
Basically, it still has the same genre and it is still set in the same school with a very lame name," Sandbox Academy"- unless it is a daycare center, who the heck gives a school with a name like that? What's added here are lousy terminologies like Flask Plan, Abnormals and 13 party or Class 13. However unlike the previous season this one has more action in which the focus is no longer on Medaka (or at least for the most part) instead each member of the student council who were fighting along side her, has a piece of the action and a little bit of the drama. But what makes the action genre in which the group plans to destroy the so-called 'Flask Plan" of this anime good, is that the setting of the action sort of have a slight resemblance of Bruce Lee's "Game of Death" HAAAAAAAAYA!!!! But with a certain twist of course.
Art and sound: Mediocre 5.
Well, it is still the same art used from the previous season and it still has the same amount of fanservice. There are the usual seiyu's who did the voices of the protagonists and I don't give much of the damn about the seiyu's who did the voices of the antagonists, as for the opening theme....I hate it, the ending theme....I like it.
Character: Fair 6.
On Medaka, she is still this heroine who is sooo perfect that there is nothing she can't do and won't do thingy as usual, but, in this sequel she underwent the same unwritten rule that every protagonist have to undergo which is that a protagonist have to face such seemly difficult odds in which he/she is nearing defeat which the audience feels the protagonist's suffering and then the climax, the protagonist rose up in victory. Then again the ration of the protagonist nearing defeat in some difficult odds and rising up in victory was not well balance, in fact for Medaka to emerge victorious is seemly too obvious to the point that we the audience don't even felt her suffering and it easy for one to brush it aside.
Zenkichi Hitoyoshi- as usual he is still Medaka's Guard Dog and still serving as
Student Council General Affairs Manager, unlike in the previous episode here he was now kicking ass and exhibiting his special ability. As usual I'll never understand author, Nisio Isin as to why he as to insist that the character is a practitioner of Savate when his fighting style is no different that any other anime with a martial arts genre. What I like about him is Medaka having feelings for him and seeing him hugging her.
Mogana Kikaijima- The Student Council Treasurer, what's good about her was her reaching out to Yukuhashi which to me is cute, she probably the weakest among the group with only a sonic boom as her weapon and being able to breath like a fish (figure of speech). Since this anime has an ecchi genre and Medaka is the most ecchiest, she is more like the runner up of the ecchiest cast of this anime.
Kouki Akune- the "Destroyer" I like his nick name, I like the part that he goes fighting this cyborg chick Itami Koga, it is basically nice that he was able to display his fighting ability and be able to do as to what was expected of his reputation.
In the previous season of my review, I gave this category a low score, but having seen the other protagonist given their share of the lime light the score belongs to Medaka's subordinates.
Enjoyment: Good 7.
I admit, I do find the ecchi and the martial arts part of this anime good, frankly that's as good as it get, besides this sequel ended in a cliffhanger in which the last episode was about Misogi Kumagawa, Najima Aijimu and Saki.
Overall: Poor 3.
Ok, thought the story is good the action and ecchi are alright, the thing about this anime is that it has a lot of useless terminologies that were carelessly used by the author Nisio Isin, terminologies that complicates this anime and manga as a whole, in fact the said terminology "Abnormal" vs Normal vs Special doesn't actually categorize the students in fact even though the character's info mentioned that this character is an abnormal one would be surprise that the said character can be taken down by a protagonist who is normal. It is very disgusting that the author himself uses one conflicting terminology to explain another conflicting terminology. Frankly the author is simply banking on the the main protagonist's ability to be the student council's president as this girl who is the very essence of a perfect and domineering apex bully, of course there is the fanservice that comes with it, but overall with the cliffhanger, this sequel lacks a very good surprising climax .
Will there be another sequel? Well, it looks like it.

Story: Good 7.
The execution of this anime's genre especially on the romance side is to me a well executed. You really can relate to the, I really like how this anime's romance being combine with a little bit of comedy was done. Basically it is a reverse thing where bad boy comes into normal high school girl's life and turns it upside down and along the way bad boy's relationship seem threaten when he sees possible competition trying to win normal high school girl's affection.
Art: Poor 3.
This probably the only time, where I's gonna criticized this anime's art.........it's generally terrible. For the female protagonist, I'd probabaly say that she looks better in a school uniform than in plain clothes, which she looks like a grandma. As for the boy's uniform where the main character's were studying I find it soooooo 70's, I will never understand the illustrator's PV as to why the boy's have to wear plaint pants co'z the last time I saw those kinds of pants is when my grandpa was young and part of the hippie movement in 1973.
Sound: Mediocre 5.
I just have nothing much to say about this category.
Character: Good 7.
Ok, the character's involved in this anime are somewhat you'll be irritated on one side but will most appreciated in another, ok, so about Haru, he's probably a guy whom you'll wanna do a ground and pound thing on him co'z he's more like this poster boy for a spouse abuser and he's also too reckless, but on the other hand you'll admire him that eventhough he's a delinquent, he's a delinquent who has both brains (in studying), brawn and certain level of dedication to the people close to him. Shizuka, is one ordinary mind my own business type of study bug whom you'll wish that she go for Yamaken instead of going for Haru, but you'll be a bit irritated by her seemly cold attitude towards the people around her. There is also that part where you wish that a romantic arc develops between Sasayan and Asako, but unfortunately it don't look like that it's gonna happen, however I also see a potential for a Sasayan X Chizuru arc, then again like that's gonna happen.
Going back to Haru, so he does provide the comedy aspect of this anime, but for him to be in a relationship with either Shizuka or Chizuru.......I kinda hate seeing it, to me I find him a someone who should be in a correction facility than having a romantic relationship. I wonder what the hell was that chicken doing in this anime? Cluck! Cluck!
Enjoyment and Overall: Good 7.
the enjoyment part of this anime revolves around as to what will Haru do next or what crazy thing does Haru up to order to satisfy his insecurity with his relationship with Shizuka. Overall, this anime is a combination of one irritation with Haru for being an insecure asshole and the ice cold study bug Shizuka. However it is good that their opposites attract one another.
Well, It's time for dinner, I'll be having fried chicken tonight. CLUCK! CLUCK!

Art: Mediocre 5.
I don't have much to say about the art, since I'm not an art critic anyway and besides Asuna's statutory rape scene by her lunatic husband supposed to be, Nobuyuki Sugō was censored anyway and it's pretty obvious that he didn't get to pump her.
Sound: Fair 6.
Basically I like the opening theme of "SAO," but not "ALO's" opening theme, I also like that Asuna's VA was done by Haruka Tomatsu.
Characters: Decent 4.
Well, I don't how to put my finger in this anime's category, all I can say is that I like the way that Kirito is portray as this bull headed lone wolf, in which his character is way too predictable, Asuna is basically you typical fighting vixen who becomes Kirito's on-line wife....in "SAO" that is, but I really hate that from a fighting vixen she was transformed as a helpless damsel in distress in 'ALO." When Lyfa came into the picture in "ALO" suddenly I felt that Kirito should have forgotten Asuna and be with Lyfa . If there is any charcter that gives me the most impact it is Oberon the Fairy King or Nobuyuki Sugō, ok so he's the 2nd main baddie who appeared in "ALO" but he's one baddie where I would like have his head chopped off , so the rating for this category is for him.
Enjoyment and overall: Fair 6.
TBH, there are episode that were enjoyable and there are episodes that are not, the thing her is that the plot of the anime thought it is very good, has been stretch thinly to fill the 25 episode slot. Frankly this anime should have just been limited to just 20 episode and instead of shifting from one setting to another studio A-1 Pictures should have just finish the Aincrad setting and allocated "ALO" as a sequel to be aired on another season. So far the enjoyment is mainly on the action genre of this anime than anything else, in fact the rest of the genre don't played out well, so therefore both the enjoyment and the overall of this anime only deserves a 6.

1. Komodo dragons, usually do not stalk their prey after they've bitten them, usually when a prey was bitten the komodo dragon simply just follow the scene and it takes 2 weeks before the prey dies of infection from the dragon's bite, dragons tend to stay away from humans, in fact most encounter are usually accidental, also these big lizards are also scavenger which means that the will also eat the carrion and human corpses. Oh, and some people do consider the Komodo dragon a delicacy, in fact some people in Komodo Indonesia did one time hunted these big lizards for food.
2. The Homing BIM should have 2 counter rotating propellers, now, I'm no physicist, but it is a fundamental law that every hovering aircraft be it a toy, a gadget should follow. It is the same principle as a Helicopter.
3. In order for a corrosive-BIM to be effective on a 6 block radius, the amount of sulfuric acid that should be used would around 30,000 gallons.
4. If someone has to have all 4 fingers cut away simultaneously that person would die from a loss of blood unless the cut fingers were cauterize immediately. And to have one's hand blown up would also kill a person due to massive blood loss so it is quite odd that Shiki was able to survived after loosing her hand from a self inflicted explosion.
Most of the characters in this anime represent the everyday people whom we know or whom we encounter that we either don't like, don't get along and those that we wanna get even with, which we wish that they go to hell, like:
Kiyoshi Taira: a boss from hell.
Masashi Miyamoto: a toughie, a war freak and a criminal.
Nobutaka Oda: Sakamoto's classmate and a typical asshole.
Masahito Date: a malpracticing doctor.
Hidemi Kinoshita: a typical everyday bitch.
Kōsuke Kira: a delinquent.
Mitsuo Akechi: a sex perv.
Sōichi Natsume: a defense lawyer in which the police and people seeking justice would love to hate.
Himiko: The campus scapegoat, in which she wasn't suppose to belong in hell.
Ryōta Sakamoto: a good for nothing NEET and if I were her mom, I won't even hesitate to nominate him as a way to kick him off the house.
The enjoyment and overall of this anime maybe a bit lame on the action side but still this is one lame action pack anime that is still worth watching, but not something that deserves a high rating, then again it is also something that should not have a low rating as well. Mainly because Madhouse studio focuses more on the evil of man that the blood and gore. So overall this anime is fairly entertaining. If any of you don't get how I've rated every category of this anime, the here it is again:
Story: Fair 6.
Character: Same rating as the first one.
and so does the enjoyment and overall.
Ya know if such thing like that does happen in real life then there will be one MAL user in which I'll make a placement for him/her to be nominated to go to that kind of hell. Then again he or she ain't worth it.

Be enveloped by the flames of darkness.
.........just kidding. Ok so I've finish this 12 episode anime, so how do I find it? Well, generally speaking it's good and it's probably one of the best winter animes of 2012 that Kyoani did, frankly, I really don't care as who did who, co'z as longas I like the anime I watch it. So far though this anime's genre are: School, Romance and comedy, everything revolves around that "Don Quixote Dela Mancha" theme, besides the a "Chuunibyou" can almost be classified as one and just like the mention novel, the character Don Quixote regained his sanity in the end, btw I haven't read the said novel, I only know just a few tidbits of it. Except here, Rikka and Sanae gain their sense of being realistic in the world they live....only to go back to lala land. So for the story, I'm giving it a "Good" 7, though the story is touching, the problem is that it attracts us to it at one point and shoves us away in another. There is also that inconsistency as to how Rikka's 8th grade delusional disorder came to be, in one point we were made to assume that she has that disorder all along and that her finding Yuuta was just coincidence, as we make it mid-way, we were introduce to Rikka's father in which his dead was the cause of her disorder, Then it took a U-turn in the final episode when it was Yuuta who indirectly gave her the idea to create a world of her own and be a wielder of her so-called " Jaō Shingan," so with it a score 7 is what this part deserve.
Art: Mediocre 5.
I'm just not an art critic and besides, there isn't any fanservice to speak of, as for the goth loli attire that both Rikka and Sanae dons..... I don't have much to comment about it.
Sound and Character: Good 7.
Since, I do like the VA's who portrayed the character's in this anime, I like both the opening and the closing themes. But as for Makoto's VA, Sōichirō Hoshi, I just don't think that he should have done the character's voice co'z his voice no longer has that youthful appeal, if it where me I would have chosen Satoshi Hino. The characters, really did play well, so who are they?
Rikka Takanashi: As I've mention, her character as to how she got to know Yuuta was inconsistent and I need not mention it again, I like the way that she portrays this girls whom you'll love to do what Sanzo of "Saiyuki" does to Goku when he's pissed and that is hitting him hard on the head with a big paper fan. The funny thing about her is how she keeps sticking on to Yuuta and pesters him about his past as the "Dark Flame Master," but what's entertaining is that Yuuta gets to do what we audience would want to do to her. JUDGMENT LUCIFER!!!!!!
Yuuta Tongashi: As the main protagonist and an ex-chuunibyou , he does fulfill that usual high school dude who's world turns upside down when pesky girl comes to his life kind of thing. Ok, so he's the kind of guy in which we the audience would do to Rikka what we wanna do, and that's to knock her back into reality. Thought it would be funnier if he does it often. I do like the part that in the end he was able to help Rikka with her undying grief over her father's dead by accepting her disorder and using it as a way to accept that her life must go on as her master. Besides this anime's title is " Despite My Adolescent Delusions of Grandeur, I Want a Date!"
Nibutani Shinka: another ex-chuunibyou, ok at one point I did like her to be Yuuta's love interest, but that all came down when I saw how dominant she is and how she looks down on guys. However it is a mystery if she's the one who gave Makoto that love letter or was it Kumin, I guess we'll never know. I'd like the part where she quarrels with Sanae and how she takes charge of things in Rikka's club in a realistic way, since Rikka tends to be very lousy with the club management.
Tsuyuri Kumin: she doesn't have Rikka and Sanae's disorder, but I kinda view her as an add-on to the anime, if she the one who gave Makoto that love letter then she and him would have made a nice pair. I really hate the part where she becomes this welder of Rikka's so called "Jaō Shingan" co'z it kinda don't fit her to have such disorder when she's the gang's senior.
Isshiki Makoto: I'd probably describe him as this anime's class clown, especially the part when he has to shave his head co'z he misplaces his survey book and was picked up by Nibutani.
Takanashi Touka: if this anime has a tsundere then she is it, in fact I like the way she woops Rikka's ass (figure of speech). But I really find her as an unlikable character, due to the fact that she herself has to relied on Yuuta to put Rikka back to reality, Then again her kicking Rikka's ass into reality is the most entertaining part for her.
Sanae Dekomori:"Death," I kinda hate her character very much, des. But I do like the way she wore her hair down when she came back into the world of reality, des. Also, des, I like the way she quarrels with Nibutani, des.
Enjoyment and Overall: Good 7.
So maybe this anime attracts us audience towards this anime at one point and shoves us on another, there may some inconsistencies in it and the idea that this anime's genres revolves the Don Quixote theme thing. Overall this anime is worth watching, co'z at the end you'll be touched by Rikka and Yuuta being together and going to where the sun rises thingy. The amount of drama may not be much, but it did added such impact to this anime's soft side. Though I'd wish that Kyoani have added "Satone Shichimiya" to spiced up this anime a bit more.

Well considering that this is an extension of the parent anime, I say that its unique and can be classified as a special. Though there is still that Yuuko pestering Teiichi kind of thing, however this special is all about Kirie's 8th grade delusion of wanting to vanquish Yuuko and Momoe's usual sucker for urban legends, so for the story I gave it a "Fair" 6, thought it still retains the usual genre, the story itself is loosely base on Momoe's quixotic urban legend investigation, it is corny on one side but the dark comedy makes up for it, only by an inch, so such rating is what the story deserves.
Art, sound and character: Mediocre 5.
Ok, I not an art critic, so forgive me for giving the art a 5. Obviously, nothing much has change, everything are still the same, beside the fanservice isn't much, we don't get to see Kirie's panty, Momoe and Yuuko's boob flashes are limited. Sound.....nothing for me to say, besides the one who did the character's voices are still the usual and so as the character, however I do like Kirei's cosplay that transpired during her argument with Yuuko and this is the only time that we got to know that Kirei has an 8th grade delusion.....in the anime that is.
Enjoyment and overall: Good 7.
The special did lived up to as what was expected, in which it didn't look like an extension of the parent anime's episode. Though it was a bit corny, it was good that the author did manage to place a dark comedy aspect of this special, but as I've said the dark comedy only covered up the corniness of this special only a narrow inch. But it was all worth it in some aspect, so when watching this, one must not expect a lot.
Adios amigos, I have to join up with the rest of my gang to party hard in celebration of the upcoming doomsday. ARIBA!!!! read more

Story: Pathetic 1
Like all other Queen Blade special, there isn't any story just them bodacious babes doing all sort of sexual teasers in certain settings.
Art: Good 7
Ok, there really is much about the art, I mean everything about the way the fanservice were drawn is still the same, you still see the usual boob flashing, panty shots, foreplay's and booty calling which is usual of the entire Queen Blade Franchise. The only thing lacking is the full frontal (you know what I mean) which is probably the only part that is censored. And I'm guilty of enjoying seeing it.
Sound: Good 7.
I'll be honest here, the moaning, the grinding, and boobs dribbling were very stimulating, so say what you wanna say, I don't give a damn.
Characters: Mediocre 5.
Well, it is not unusual for the Queen Blade Franchise to shuffle the characters from every season or OVA, so it safe to say that the character are still you typical hot babes duking out with each other whether they're fighting or doing foreplay. But among them characters it is Annelotte that I find good in a sense that she has the potential to play in wholesome role.
Enjoyment and overall: Pathetic 1.
Tbh, I did said before that this special ain't for those who expect a lot, so if you like to enjoy the sexual foreplay that this special presents, then enjoy. Frankly this is only for those who would watch it and having one hand on the keyboard or mouse and another hand on his.......................I think I'll leave up to your imagination.
PS: If my review is pathetic, just click the "Not Helpful" caption.
