Valkyries—legendary female warriors from the land of gods, Asgard—are sent by Odin to protect Earth against the growing threat of demons. To overcome these threats, nine valkyries under the guise of the Saotome sisters will have to level up by performing a variety of romantic acts with their official lover, Einherjar.

Meanwhile, the socially anxious Takuma Akutsu learns that Odin has chosen him as the valkyries' lover. Despite his utter horror, however, he agrees to let the sisters stay in his big yet empty house to help them in their war against demons. With nine beautiful women sharing his roof, will Takuma manage to prevail over his fear of society and become someone worthy of saving the world?

Is this a must watch anime? No.

But honestly tho, people be sheeting at this like its worse thing ever. I have seen much worse anime that has 7 or 8 rating on mal.

The story is mediocre tbh, and the only saving grace of this show is its MC, the show just feels like your typical shounen/harem/ecchi sheet, but while this is the case, the MC is probably more likable than most shounen MCs ever. Like bruh the MC is not a totally pushover and has an actual goal, where tf can you find that level of competence in this cesspool genre of anime. People like ...

I don't know what anyone else could have expected from this show, of course it's terrible. But this is a kind of terrible that I find to be very appealing to watch at times. There's something about these battle harems that I find really enjoyable, but it's really hard to put my finger on what precisely it is. Maybe it's the base level titillation from the abundance of fan service. it could be the absurd and roundabout ways shows like these justify their fan service. Perhaps it's because of it's simple portrayals of characters.There's also the paper thin plot it has until it falls into ...

I always question myself every single time when we get such shows like this that cross the line between borderline ecchi and hentai, not to mention if it includes a possible harem. For the most part, when these materials are solicited according to how authors wanted it to be, the result always tends to wayward on the safe side while being enjoyable in its own regard (e.g. Monster Musume, How Not to Summon a Demon Lord etc). That however, is NOT the case for Val x Love here, the amount of disgust that this show holds is enough to question my sanity if the show ...
