Poor Shinichirou Asano has the worst of luck. His parents abandoned him and ran off to Europe. If that isn't bad enough on its own, they barely left him any money to take care of himself. In order to pay rent and keep a roof over his head, he has to work. Unfortunately, he was just fired from his last job and as a high school student, he doesn't have many other prospects.

One evening, he's attacked by a centipede monster on his way home. Shinichirou is saved by a mysterious girl with a bow and arrow, who he later discovers is Sakuya Shimazu, a beautiful student who attends his school. But when he later helps an injured girl, he discovers two things. First, the injured girl isn't human at all but rather a nekomata, a two-tailed demon cat. And second, Sakuya comes from a family of exorcists, who've protected humanity from rogue monsters and spirits for generations. Because Shinichirou was responsible for releasing the nekomata, Sakuya enlists his help in recapturing the demon, but that's just the beginning of Shinichirou's relationship with Sakuya. It turns out the Shimazu family needs a housekeeper and it just so happens that Shinichirou excels at cooking and likes to clean! It may not be his dream job, but if it pays the rent and puts food on the table...


Episode 1 was previewed at a screening at Kadokawa Cinema Shinjuku in Tokyo on January 5, 2015. Regular broadcasting began on January 24, 2015.

Some people feel the need to have a story spelt out to them – they need to be explicitly told what happens. They need things to be neatly wrapped up with a bow, without any ambiguity or thought. They don’t want to be part of the story telling process, no intellectual investment, just pure entertainment.

It’s almost laughable to speak about intellectual investment in terms of a harem anime which is definitely what this is. But while Isuca is far from a masterpiece, or even the best example of the genre, that doesn’t mean it isn’t entertaining in its own right.

The plot is relatively simple – ...

Mixed Feelings
If you like ecchi, just watch it. The story is bare-bones.

The animation is stiff, rushed, choppy and basic. And mind you i watched the Blu Ray version. So don’t expect anything from that department. It is as average as it gets.

The main character, Shimazu Sakuya, has a recurrent trope where she constantly hits the other main character, Shinichirou Asano, for whatever reason. I found it surprising that for an anime that lasts 10 episodes, Sakuya's behaviour gets annoying and repetitive extremely fast. Looking like she won't be able to break out from her psychotic tsundere personality.
This makes her character unrelatable, repulsive and appalling to withstand.
Definitely ...

It is NOT a comedy and it is barely a romance and not realy ecchi. This anime is a action drama with horror scenes. So yes i gues you can understand why its score is not so good, it is because description is all wrong.

So in story there sre some girls hunting spirits and there is that guy that is helping them. And i gues if youre looking for an easy horror action anime then you may even like it, however if you want to enjoy a ecchi romantic comedy then go watch something alse.

And its not unusual that people try to sell dramas as ...
