Timid 16-year-old Rito Yuuki has yet to profess his love to Haruna Sairenji—a classmate and object of his infatuation since junior high. Sadly, his situation becomes even more challenging when one night, a mysterious, stark-naked girl crash-lands right on top of a bathing Rito.

To add to the confusion, Rito discovers that the girl, Lala Satalin Deviluke, is the crown princess of an alien empire and has run away from her home. Despite her position as the heiress to the most dominant power in the entire galaxy, Lala is surprisingly more than willing to marry the decidedly average Rito in order to avoid an unwanted political marriage.

To LOVE-Ru depicts Rito's daily struggles with the bizarre chaos that begins upon the arrival of Lala. With an evergrowing legion of swooning beauties that continuously foil his attempted confessions to Haruna, To LOVE-Ru is a romantic comedy full of slapstick humor, sexy girls, and outlandishly lewd moments that defy the laws of physics.

To Love-Ru is licensed in North America by Sentai Filmworks and distributed by Section23 Films. To Love-Ru has been adapted into five video games; two Nintendo DS visual novels, two Playstation Vita games, and a smartphone game.

i recommend this... ¡Only if you like ecchi!

This anime its made with the objetiuve to be an ecchi, nothing more. And it makes it incredible. It is one of the best in its genre, it is everything it proposes, all the reasons why someone would want to see an ecchi harem this anime fulfills perfectly!

a really good variety of girls to pick and choose, the mc its not that boring like other harem/ecchi mc. I really rnjoy Rito actually, he´s funny and he is kind-hearted, i can kinda understand why theres a bunch of hot chiks in love w him.. LOL XD

don´t watch if you ...

Classic ecchi, weak characters, no plot, no music no nothing, if you like grab boobs and so it's your show, if you want to watch a good anime, stay out of this one, only character that is okish is yami.

MC is horrendous, classic good guy who makes all the FC fall for him, totally really retarded.

The art is ok-ish, the only good thing of the anime probably and is not even that good.

FC are just stereotypes with no personality or developement.

If you like boobs and play with your wood this is your anime if you want something decent... just no. As ecchi is ok-ish, if ...
