Synopsis

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...

What's up MAL community, here I am bringing you another review about how bad something is. Seriously this one deserves a bad review.

Isuca is quite possibly the worst anime I have ever seen like of all time. I know my review of Absolute Duo painted that series as bad but this one makes that show look like a masterpiece.

By now you all probably know what this show is about thanks to the effort of those who actually tried to write a review without wanting to puke so I won't get into the details, I'm just going to tell you why you shouldn't bother.

"Masterpiece" is what I would describe anything else compared to Isuca. I felt like the time I wasted watching this show was better off watching paint dry or some other nonsense I could come up with. This is something you need to stay away from. The writing will make you cringe because of how cheesy it is, the animation is horrid, and characters are just disgraceful and pathetic.

Story (2/10): The plot is nonsensical and downright redundant. It had the grounds to be a somewhat decent plot, yet all their creativity was used to instead put the main character in ridiculous and perverted situations. The read more

(This has been adapted from my blog/reddit thread. Spoilers ahead!)

Many people growing up, at one point or another, encounter a situation in which they have to “prove their worth.” Sometimes it’s small, like performing well on the job to earn a raise. Sometimes it’s huge, like saving someone from a fatal accident. But no matter the severity or the situation, accomplishing such a moment makes that guy or girl grow into an overall better person. And even if they don’t achieve their goal, the experience earned gives them the necessary tools to hopefully make that next opportunity one that’s more positive than the last. Isuca read more

Anime adaptations of manga or light novels make up most of what one would see in any given anime season. With these adaptations, several results can appear. 1. A series will get a perfect adaptation of the source material and get good feedback. 2. A series can resemble the source material to the extent of its being still good. 3. Screw the source material, just do whatever you want, and reap what you sow. Isuca...follows choice #3.
