"Dakara Boku Wa" Starts off with this strange perverted Open minded boy walking around with his childhood friend. He is very known at his school for being a pervert, and many dislike him.
Basically They waste your time with Pointless half Hentai Crap for the first 6 episodes. Episode 1, you get the real point of the show and the direction it should be heading into. Then you hit episode 2, and you have a Pervert who has this strange ability to regain his power through getting aroused.

On top of that through the rest of 3-6 they keep throwing Hentai-Like events at you, and slowly introducing ...

If you're looking for an ecchi show, one that's filled with fan-service, one that has a perverted teen in his puberty years thinking about lewd thoughts, or a High School DxD clone, then look no further. So, I Can't Play H (also known Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai) is a series about a group of breasts with a perverted protagonist who makes the deal of his short life with a beautiful Shinigami, or in English terms, a grim reaper during a wet and rainy night.

~ The Deal

Or maybe known as the story. Well, the overall tone of the story is predictable and filled with ...

Boku-H is a perfect example of what ecchi harem shows are about, and in this review, I am here to explain why our standards of appreciation must be adjusted to account for what actually makes these types of shows enjoyable.

By the normal standards of grading entertainment, we usually define quality entertainment as intelligent in some way. Intelligent design for entertainment usually is produced through a well-thought out story and an interesting cast that has thought provoking development. Naturally, it is very easy to dismiss Boku-H as being a mediocre show when it does in fact have an uninspired story that feels rushed and ...

The power of boners is stronger.

The Short Version:
(+)The art is actually pretty good.
(+)Harem with a plot, a weak plot, but still a plot.
(-)If you’re not here for the tits you’re in for a bad time.
(-)The soundtrack is really unremarkable.
(-)You can point at the characters and say, “You are this archtype and nothing else.”

The Story (5/10): The story for this show is more than I was expecting given this is an ecchi-harem show, it starts off with a very honest MC who, when he’s heading home, suddenly meets a stunning red headed beauty. Who basically says hi by stabbing him in the chest with a sword. ...

Preliminary (1/12 eps)
I will make this very very short since i suck at writing reviews.

what you should expect from this anime is that it got some ecchi footage and lots of action already from first episode, but overall pretty funny scences xD

I would recomend you to watch the first episode if you don't like it from there drop it but if you like it continue watching it, im sure there will be lots of funny and good scences.

I really injoyed the first episode and can't wait for the next one.

Preliminary (8/12 eps)
When I first began this anime I didn't expect anything. It seemed like a stupid pervert ecchi story with a bit of fantasy mixed in.
As I continued I realized it was exactly what I expected except that it's the best of its kind.
Don't expect too much. 12 episodes, with a lead that is a pervert. How much development do you expect? It's sweet but not a "make you think" story like death note or code geass.
Splendid. I love the art. The characters look marvelous. Even the guys don't look like monkeys or idiots.
Typical harem. A perverted lead, tsundere, childhood friend, shy girl etc.
This is ...

'Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai' is your average ecchi rom-com with a few interesting twists thrown in here and there. That said and whether it's intentional or not, this anime has a lot of similarities with other well known series and if you're an anime savvy watcher it feels like many plot points here have been done before in a strikingly similar way elsewhere.

The story is banal and doesn't really require much in-depth description. The male lead, Ryosuke Kaga, is the stereotypical high school anime pervert and lives out his days oblivious to the powers high above. One day he meets a ...

Like your average high school boy, Ryosuke Kaga can’t stop thinking perverted thoughts. Unlike the average high school boy, he won’t shut up about it, and cares little for anything other than breasts, butts, breasts, napes, breasts, panties, breasts, and... Um... Underarms. It makes more sense when he says it.

Anyway, on his way home from school, he sees a beautiful red-haired girl standing all alone in the rain outside of his house. Not content to just stare at her wet, transparent shirt, he offers her his umbrella, and invites her in for a change and a shower. No sooner ...

Preliminary (Unknown/12 eps)
This is my first review so don't be too harsh...XD
Id give it a 6.5~7 /10 ...i thought it was kinda of generic and bland...though the art and animation is good ,and the insertion of jokes are done well but in a also generic way .But the episode feels like it is lacking the main pole or pillar that supports the bridge,the story.As well as for the way of absorbing viewer.Normally first episodes are ended in a way that incites viewers to watch next episode.But this episode ended with a suspense event ,but one that is not striking enough IMO to have the viewers say ,I ...

alright, second review time and it has been some time since my first one, this time i'm going to discuss Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai, a mouth full if you ask me.

First off let me say that this show is still airing and I will change my score when this show is completed, so this review is meant to give you an impression.
Another thing I would like to point out from the start is that this show is ecchi, so for those people who don't like it, don't even start watching this as there are plenty of ripped clothes which will leave some ...

Dakura Boku wa, H ga Dekinai is basically your run of the mill, standard echhi anime. While this anime is by no means terrible it is simply mediocre at best. The story was promising at times but the plot was never sufficiently explored for me to care too much. The animation was pretty good but thats to be expected. The soundtrack is by far the best part of the anime, as the opening and ending are both outstanding. The characters........ This is where Dakura Boku wa, H ga Dekinai falls flat on it's face, of all the characters i only like one, The main character ...

Haters of the ecchi genre or people who do not want to be accused watching porn, please skip this review and check other reviews out because this anime is all about boobs. Boobs are everywhere is this anime! Right, I'm going straight into what I feel about this anime.

Honestly, the plot in this anime is terribly boring. The whole anime is centred around this death goddess searching for the most powerful energy source in this world. Of course, obstacles appeared and they overcame it and that's all. They actually spend about 9 episodes or so searching for that energy source. Pretty boring to me ...

I watched this because someone recommended it, with the bold statement 'It's better than Highschool DxD!' I am a massive DxD fan, of both the anime and the LN series. Challenge Accepted.
Upon completion of this I realized that that recommendation was done by someone who was either A) High or B) Hadn't actually seen DxD.
This anime doesn't hold a candle to it.
Not to say, if you like your usual action/fanservice fapfest, that isn't watchable.

I got the feeling, from watching this, that there was a decent story in there somewhere but it was garbled and disjointed. Unfortunately I think it fell prey ...

NOTE: Again, this review is only based on the anime. I haven't read both the light novel and the manga.

EDIT: Some grammar check and minor addition of content. My opinion regarding the anime still remains the same.

After I and my ecchi-addicted friend watched the first episode of "Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai" (which we simply watched since I saw it here on MAL that it's like High School DxD), we both know that there's no sparks out there, trying to hook us - its watchers - to get into the anime. Despite that, we still continued to watch the anime. Although finishing the anime ...

Great anime.

Full of comedy, romance, action, and tits.

I'm not even going to waste my time explaining the plot. Just know that it's great, and the first few episodes are basically intros for the characters. It might be hard to stay on-board (It's well worth it!), but know that after all the characters are revealed, this show takes off into greatness.
This anime shifts gears mid-story and steers from comedy ecchi towards a more serious tone. It matures very well yet still retains its "fun".
The only predictable things in this anime are the fight scenes in the first few episodes, afterwards nothing is obvious and it ...

Since your probably reading this just to test the waters for Dakara Boku wa, H ga Denkinai, I'm going to keep this review short.

*MAL ratings are broken as helllll

Overall, this ecchi anime is perfect.It is comedic, cute, exciting and unlike most, this actually has a story and i'snt a harem. All the characters are as believable as they can get in a 12 episode ecchi. Keep in mind that this is a casual anime, it's not a work of art but it is at its core, a ball of fun and has actually pretty decent romance. Also its not stupidly ero or ridiculous so it ...

If you were to take the classic, quiet girl with a large chest with a crush on the MC since they were kids; the large-chested foil who wants the MC just because; the moderate-chested girl who learns to love the perverted antics of the MC, and the clear romantic interest with a small chest and a tsundere personality, and add a moderate-bust sized cold killer, that'd be the entire female cast of the show. (I typically don't define anime girls by their bust size, but in this series, the screentime on just their faces and just their busts are about equal.) Throw in the perverted ...

Recently I was out of anime to watch and was looking for a few of them and came across Dakara boku wa H ka dekinai. I heard a lot of praise especially for it's second half and as I was dropping anime quite a lot here and there I thought about giving a shot and let's just say it didn't go well for me...

Story: 2/10

At best I could describe the anime as "border to hell" with a 2. That's the most I could ever give it for the story section. Call me wierd, but I am very particular about a plot in an Ecchi anime, ...

This is a pretty good show, kinda weak, but still pretty good. It follows this guy whos an extreme pervert and the death god (female of course) that he lives with.
This show is one of those where the writers might have gotten a little out of control with their rights. I mean the whole basis is that the death god cant live on earth without replenishing energy so she decides to make a contract where she can suck his energy out. Thing is, for him to energize himself (heres where the fanserve comes into play) he has to be turned on/horny/have a raging boner etc. ...

*heaves a sigh*
Where do I start with this review? I do not have any idea and I would dread reviewing this as much as forcing myself to watch this 12 episodes of cringe-worthy recycled anime.

I have always been dubious of action and ecchi genres being lumped together because in my opinion, I would not be able to focus on the action if there's panties shots or exposed breasts every few seconds on the screen which is much reflected in most of the anime having these two genres together. I believe that there's a fine line between focusing on the action or focusing on the ecchi ...
