The story takes place in an age where "Ajin" (demi-human), more casually known as "Demi," have slowly started to become accepted into human society. Tetsuo Takahashi is a biology teacher who ends up teaching three such Demi, hoping to understand more about them while also managing to catch their attention.
Fucking another underrated show of this season that's actually cute, funny, and pretty damn enjoyable to watch. Not a single bit of this anime bores me with its cute and childish ascription on these demi girls action and their way of voice inflection or the way they talk basically. I mean the premise here might resemble to that of monster musume, but the way the story have been going so far is entirely different. And yes, this is a slice to life anime, well im sure you could tell from seeing the cover of this anime. However, another reason that this anime is just great would be due to the way the story goes, despite being a slice to life. This anime explores different kinds of trivial and issues that these demi girls may have, while coexisting with humans and how their ability or natural phenomenon of being around humans affects them psychologically, or physically . Physically as in the arousal of libido drive, or psychologically like fear or being treated differently from the majority, which the majority here would be the humans, and the minority would be the demi.
I personally finds these kind of story intriguing and riveting to see, given that they actually go deeper in human's interaction and the de minimis (wtf is this word lmao) they that carries around. Some of these traits, features, or qualities would then resulted in isolation, avoidance of contact with humans, or awkwardness in a group conversation when the demi tries to get involve which has been shown in the anime. And the way they work those kind of motif to represent the themes of possibly discrimination, isolation due to their identity, and so forth is pretty enthralling to see.
Some of the dialogue at times is pretty deep as well. The anime explores both human's rational behind their bad behavior, or the intention of doing something to harm other out of their inferiority complex and mental weaknesses in confronting them. Or how public appearances are kept a certain way in a specific environment or occupation to act like a person who are in that social position, and so forth.
And surprising the animation is pretty good as well. Aside from the pretty lame ass, and generic looking MC of both personality and their character designs (i mean his face kinda reminds me of the MC from gates, the fantasy army vs military one). Even so, you would prolly fall in love with most of the character within this show, despite the MC looking pretty humdrum and bland. Well you will like him too in the long run.
Well but to keep it short, the theme had me digging, the cuteness and the funny kawai desu ne through childish and random cute sounds to weird sounds and its interesting interaction is what make me like this anime, while keep watching for more of its content. But seriously, this anime is so underrated man. I didn't know that this anime was good (I just pick this anime out randomly from the seasonal releases) until I actually watched it and enjoy it all the way. read more
Discrimination can be a problem in modern day society. It can hurt and cause permanent damage to an individual life. Even though this series take it on with comical aspects, it can tend to have certain situations that take place in the real world, and that...won't be a comical aspect. I will review this as an anime-only watcher.
Interviews with Monster girls or Demi-chan wa Kataritai takes the problem comically and seriously.
Taken into another school setting we have our main male character, who is actually a biology teacher who takes an interest in what they call the monster people 'demis.' He strives to find out and gain more knowledge about the everyday lives of demi's. To see if they lead a simple life, or a somewhat difficult life. Therefore, insert the demi's
Each of these girls have a unique trait to them that makes them demi's. I was amazed to see some new somewhat facts about these unique traits.
I've known and read about vampire stories for quite a while now and I usually thought about them about blood-finding fiends to feasts on the blood of their enemies. Well when u put that into SOL, things may seem different. For Hikari, she likes onions, and she drinks from a bag of blood. 10/10 for society, they provided vampires with an alternative rather than directly drinking blood from a human's neck. To me, Hikari is like the total opposite me, she's energetic, straight-forward, and will not hesitate to protect her friends if they're in trouble. Well for me, well, take the opposite of that. I love looking at her and saying "This is what I would be If I had that type of personality. Boy, would I want that so much.
Machi is the headless girl, the dullahan, the only other one I saw was Celty, and both are pretty on equal terms. Took me a while to figure out that Machi was preeetttyy stacked in the...chest region. She was shy at first, and in a way, anxious. How people would act around her because of her, well, appearance. However Hikari gave 0 shits. She said "ok, we're friends now." She was also like "Date with Tetsuo? You got it!" Behind that wall of energy that Hikari has, she can be the most caring person one can ever hope for. #WeNeedHikari'sInOurLife. Anyways, back to Machi. Machi is someone who can be on the offensive when she pushes herself to the limit. I mean hey, she asked for a hug once or twice. Most girls would end up punching the man in the face, saying "Don't come near me," and throw the closest inanimate object for no particular reason. But with Machi's cuteness, punching won't be happening anytime soon. Although hugging just a head might prove to be weird. But hey, since it's Machi, I'll forgive her this time.
Yuki Kusakabe is the snow woman. SOMEONE PLEASE HUG HER (Although Tetsuo already did that). WHAT KIND OF FIENDISH FAGGOTS WOULD WANT TO TALK TRASH TO AN ADORABLE DEMI LIKE HER!!! >:(. So because Yuki hasn't got too much character development, we can solidly see what kind of person she is. She distances herself from people. I can assume something happened in the past that caused her to act this way, maybe some kind of tragedy that involved her powers. However that is just a guess. She's a distant person, but Tetsuo also gives 0 shits. Yuki will open up to him soon enough and we're probably going to get some sort of backstory revolving around her (As episode 5 will apparently be about her). She may be shy, but she just needs someone, who understands.
Insert "Fuck-Me" Sense.. I mean Satou Sensei. Probably the most interesting character out of all them.
As a teacher she is quite, well, pretty actually. She has it all. But what really got me is the succubus life. I've always thought succubus lived a life of sex, wanting more and more and more. But actually, living as a succubus is downright DIFFICULT AS SHIT. She is very considerate around the people around her. At the touch, you become aroused, wanting that feeling of the smex. But no, that is not the case. Satou really is cautious about not giving the people around her arousal, let alone sleeping around other people, for if she does that, she will give them sexual dreams. Not that I would mind that, let alone being touched by her. She wakes up early in the morning, and leaves the school last, to prevent any trouble from occuring. This made me see succubus in a new light. And that made me fall in love with her even more.
Art (8) A-1 doing A-1 things. I love the colors and the use of the schemes.
Sound (9) Great OP, great ED, appropriate BGM's (sex...sex....sex....) best sound, 9/10
Enjoyment (10) Enjoyed watching this series a lot. While getting a lot of laughs, I gained a lot of thoughts and concerns too regarding the whole issue on demi's and discrimination.
Overall (9) Probably one of the more under rated anime's this winter. I'm only hoping for this to get better, dive into the situations more on a serious tone, and a whole ton of more laughs, feels, and Demi's. So sit back and relax, grab a cup of coffee, tea, Milk, Hot Chocolate, Orange Juice, Beer, Tomato Juice, Soda, Water, Chocolate Milk, Apple Juice, Grape Juice, Cranberry juice, and enjoy this anime to the fullest.
This is an anime set in a parallel universe where demihumans exist and are considered minorities by the state.
It follows a teacher/college student who works at a high school and does his best to get arrested by flirting with underage demon girls... I mean interviewing them to get an insight to their true nature. Clearly law enforcement, teacher conduct codes, and statutory rape have different definitions in that reality.
It's a cringeworthy story as how NOT to behave around those you're tasked to educate and nurture--and also how to get thrown in jail in 99% of the civilized world.
Oh, and apparently Japanese are obsessed with Dullahans, this one is nowhere near as fascinating and charming as Celty.
If you want to watch an anime about the awkwardness of coming of age, with the added bonus that your head is not attached to your body and therefore can do creative and perverted things (I shit you not, this is a line from the show), then by all means turn yourself into the nearest authorities.read more

~~ Initial Impressions ~~
Having read the manga before the anime's release, I was intrigued to find out whether or not A1 pictures would manage to properly adapt this subtle and quite touching manga. Diving into the first episode, I was happy to find the character designs had not been completely butchered and their personalities showed through in the anime much like in the manga.
~~ Story and Characters ~~
As the title suggests, the main focus on the story revolves around the main character, Takahashi Tetsuo, talking and interacting with the "'Demis'" (demi humans), who are beings of folklore, including vampires, dullahans, succubi and yukki onnas. These are the four "'Demis'" present in the show, and they serve as the main cast and focus of each episode, exploring their experiences and thoughts living as a "'Demi'" in modern society. The episodic nature of the show works to it's favor, allowing it to centre each episode around one of the characters and develop them, however, the series as a whole does not have an overall goal or conclusion it is trying to reach, leaving the show to be more like a slice of life series. The characters are charming and each unique in their own way, their various personalities showcasing how each individual perseveres through their various struggles as a "'Demi'".
Overall, a simple structure in terms of story, likeable and charming characters and character growth.
~~ Audio Visuals ~~
The character designs are faithful to the manga, keeping the cute simplistic designs, carrying over the character charm from the manga. The art is bright and colourful, but the animation is just average. The voice casting was done very well, matching the personalities of the characters. The op and ed are fine, but easily forgetable.
~~ Overall ~~
An enjoyable fun watch, charming characters, simple art and design. This series does not sexualise the characters, but leaves some small hints of romance and mild comedic ecchi scenes here and there.
