On the surface, Ryousuke Kaga is the token perverted teenager, spending his days ogling women and indulging in erotic reveries. Because of this, Ryousuke is ostracized by his classmates. Only his childhood friend Mina Okura knows that behind his lecherous persona lies a compassionate boy who has sworn to be chivalrous to girls, believing they are treasures that must be protected.

One fateful day, Ryousuke runs into Lisara Restall, a Soul Reaper hailing from a noble family, whose primary objective in the human realm is to locate a magically potent person known as the One. In order to fuel her movement with magic, she decides to form a provisional contract with Ryousuke: to use his sexual desires as a source of energy. Carrying out this peculiar arrangement with Lisara, Ryousuke encounters many disparate individuals but also learns of the intriguing yet dark secrets surrounding his world.

Dakara Boku wa / So I can't Play H is a lighthearted, fun, easy to watch light-ecchi anime. The main character Ryosuke is a lewd lad and not only he thinks about erotic stuff all the time, he blurts what he thinks out, too. The story revolves around a Shinegami coming to Earth to meet him in search of The One, and several ecchi shenanigans pursue this encounter.
As to why I recommend this show, is the same as why I enjoyed watching "Renai Flops": they are both fun shows with likeable, cute, fun to watch, and funny main characters. You end up wandering what ...

Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai is basically a High School DxD clone that is, despite being mediocre, still fun to watch. The story isn't too deep, but it's watchable. As for the characters, don't expect much from this show, as we don't even know the main villain's name. The art and sound weren't amazing, but they're okay. The characters ...

At first I thought from the title of the show that is was some sort of social drama regarding poor NEETs who couldn’t score or play erogames, but turns out it is something entirely different. Not for the best though.

- Animated by Feel, a studio that makes only shitty ecchi anime.
- Directed by Takahashi Takeo, the guy who also did the somewhat nice Spice and Wolf, but is otherwise just another guy deep into passable ecchi titles.
- Based on a light novel, which means a light story. And in this case, just another Shana clone.
Just from the get-go, you already know it will be ...
