What seem to start off as just a little series that gave people a laugh turned into something new for the series.

For starters, Rito always seem to be put in situations that aren't entirely his fault and by this point everyone knows what happens. However, this season gives somewhat of a plot and cliffhanger for a new season which will lead further into it.

The one I didn't like about the series who Tear who was introduced in episode 10. Now don't get me wrong, it's not that shes a bad character in any way, it's just that you only get to see her read more

the first time i does not feel disappointed with echi anime
of course this anime is recommended for man, there are only rito who take a role as a man character in this season, there no outrageous scene that make you disappointed

story (9/10)
the best story if compared with the other season, no stupid thing that rito do that makes the watcher feel irritated, but what make me feel bored is to many shower scene

great background, great character design, rito body look more manly in this season different from the the other season where rito look like pitiful man

doesn't make to curious or bored, normal but enjoy read more

While it was better than Motto because of its plot, I must say Darkness still fell far short of the comedic genius of the first season of To LOVE-Ru. In terms of ecchi, it is better than both prior seasons, and most ecchi anime in general. It still has the problems of simply rehashing the same jokes over and over, but this doesn't bother me as much given there is actually a plot to follow. However, therein lies the disappointment. There is no real finale. Not even really a cliffhanger. It gives the feeling of reading a book halfway through and stopping in the middle read more

Now let me start off with this to love ru darkness is not everybody's cup of tea it's a ecchi harem anime but even though it is that I enjoyed it and here is my review to let you know why.

The anime may be a ecchi harem but the story is actually pretty good. It may not be perfect but it was enough to entertain me to continue watching it for me to figure out what this darkness it that it mentions in the title. Well as I watched more I figured out why SPOILERS- The reason why is because of Yami's dark past, and read more

This anime is very good for those people who just want to watch random events occur to one particular male character that is surrounded by loads of women who have the hots for him. It does tend to focus more on fan service and doesn't focus on the story as much as other anime. If you like things like harems,school life,and a lot of nudity this is the anime for you.

If you are one of those people who likes anime to have a good,emotional story and likes to get attached to characters then you might not like this anime. I am someone who enjoys a read more

It feels like, compared to To Love-Ru, the OVA, and Motto To Love-Ru, To Love-Ru: Darkness abandoned any sense of shame it had and fully embraced the ecchi scene. I don't think I've ever seen so much ecchi in a series before. There's so much nudity... So much. So, if you hate that kind of thing, this might not be for you. However, personally, I'm not a fan of fanservice either. That being said...

Story: There's actually a pretty good story for To Love-Ru: Darkness. There are two major plots in the works so the series is always interesting.

Art: While To Love-Ru's art was acceptable, To read more

I'm sure many of you think that this anime is nothing but ecchi-filled bullshit. But beware, as this has *no really* a GOOD story packaged in a lot of ecchi/harem nonsense that tends to sometimes go a bit over the top.

To LOVE-Ru Darkness! An anime following the events of Motto To LOVE-Ru where the main character isn't Rito this time, but Lala's younger sister Momo and/or Golden Darkness. You follow Darkness as they describe more into her background about who she is, and where she comes from. And Momo as she tries to make Rito a legit 'harem' to solve most of his "Problems."

If you feel like you ned to be a pervert and want what your wtching to still have comedy and a decent story long, The first season of To LOVE-Ru is one of those that you have to watch and then never watch again because of the genre it is in.
Ecchi... that means all the boobs, fluids and continuous and repeativitive sounds of woman having pleasure because of one virgin that is so thick that even I would of caught on to what these girls (And I was the most dense geek out there)

First of, the storyline basicly starts through the first read more

A good ecchi anime...... welp! Hell's balls have officially dropped.

Premises is interesting to say the least... I've watched the original To-LoveRu series as a favor to a friend who stated "Its different this time!" excitedly about this particular show. Quite frankly..... i didn't find To-LoveRu to be that spectacular and don't understand it's initial popularity.

This sequel however, manages to catch my interest immediately with two factors.
One, *Gasp* it has a plot.
Two, The art style is freaking beautiful.

This anime manages to squeeze in a reasonable plot and actually adds drama to a show that i found to be absolutely meaningless and quite read more

Story (7/10) - In the first series of To LOVE-Ru we barely see any remnants of a plot. Motto was more about character development than anything else. And now, with the third installment, Darkness, I feel that the beginning of a story that was mostly forgotten, is starting to take shape again. Along with the usual, wacky adventures of this series, of course.

Art (7/10) - Along with Motto, the art in Darkness has improved greatly since the first season.

Sound (6/10) - Thankfully, the intro scenes of the first series are in the distant past, the theme was a bit catchy though. The music this time read more

I finished this and thought: "OH MAN, THAT WAS GOOD!!!"
This anime is a perfect harem and succeeded where the prequel failed in plot development. In short, this may be not just the one of the best anime, but one of the best TV Series of all time.
I like the speed of the plot, and whenever there was filler it was fun fan service where the great 'what if?' scenarios we all dreamed up became reality.
I loved the animation. the animators created some of the most beautiful girls and the most detailed backdrops I have ever seen.
Note to the viewers there is a lot of read more

Story. While you cant really expect strong plot from harem show, story side is enough to stick together fanservice and ecchi moments. Its hard to call it interesting or intriguing but enough to watch harem show.
Art. Because it's not action-based show, you can't expect to see something innovative from the art point of view. However, characters and background were performed decently.
Sound. You should pay attention to opening and ending of this show. While ending is kinda lighthearted, opening has very intriguing sound.
Characters. If you compare it with previous to Love ru series you can see that focus is shifted toward other characters. These new read more

this anime is somewhat confusing for me, the plot little hard to follow
i can't really said is this anime about 'harem plan' or about 'yami'
the chara are pretty good
and there are a ton of ecchi everywhere so for someone who don't like ecchi better to not watch this
