Preliminary (3/13 eps)
You guys ever watch Takt.OP?,A show that deemed to be a “waifu bait’’.now hear me out,that anime is not 100% a waifu bait.This one however,absolutely DOES.

But the question is,is Engage kiss a good waifu bait?

From the latest episode I could say it actually does…kinda.
The story starts very very straight to the point,not like Takt.OP that basically trynna introduce the concept behind the entire origins and concept of the anime,Engage kiss straight up shows us a young boy with a young girl live in the same room and acts like a married couple,this is also a reason why I said Takt.OP is not 100% a ...

What is Engage Kiss? Engage kiss is a good story, plus fine animation, plus okayish characters, divided by people who have no idea what they are doing (the anime’s staff) and it equals Engage Kiss. Or you can tl;dr it as a ‘yet another title of A-1 that is just not that good.’

The formula for Engage Kiss is very easy and if you are familiar with Darling in the FranXX, you might experience a déjà vu. The anime focuses on a fictional city called ‘Bayron City.’ The key to its success is a new type of fuel and the production of the said fuel ...

While Lycoreco dominated the headlines and got praise for being an A-1 masterclass, I fell in love with the world and characters of Engage Kiss more and think it was the better of the two A-1 anime originals.

Engage Kiss’ very first episode hooked me. Waifus, great action scenes, Grade A hentai quality kisses, it was love at first watch. But it’s not just fanservice that kept me. The story and world are very interesting and remind me quite of bit of Toaru, Strike the blood, etc. with the island city created for research trope. It’s always a major plus for me when there’s an MC ...

Imagine taking a French fry, and putting sugar on it. Imagine getting a bowl of cereal, and pouring orange juice into it. Imagine eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but the jelly was replaced with mayo. Now grab a plate, and put all these foods together and eat it all. Are you utterly confused by what I just said? That's how much I felt confused watching this show. This recipe is what I call the “Engage Kiss”, which was a plate of every trope imaginable in the most nonsensical and dumb ways sometimes, plus a lot of plot points crammed together. Harem, check! Cute ...

It's ambigious to say exactly what Engage Kiss appeals to for its target audience. Most people will probably watch it for its romance context while others may find interest related to its sci-fi storyline. Engage Kiss strikes to me as a risky project because it tries many elements at once. Whether it's trying to engage in relationships with its main cast or tell a colorful story, Engage Kiss does earn its reptuation for what it sells.

Perhaps the most obvious is how much romance context the anime throws at the audience from the start. From the promotional poster, preview videos, and even title itself, it's easy ...

There is a weird vibe when it comes to this show. As if it's two shows in one, which honestly can work to some degree. If you take how it's presented at face value, it looks super light hearted, but then the rest plays, and you'll see there is a more serious tone that'll sprinkle on top of it. Which adds a bit more flavor to the shows quality.

Story and characters: 7
The shining light of the series, where things truly push and stick. Even if it's comedic undertones can be hit or miss at times, it's entertaining enough, to make the show stand out and ...

Engage Kiss, also known as Project Engage as the very Japanese Wikipedia page calls it, since it is a mixed-media project that got an anime, a manga and an announced game at the same time, this is definitely not the first time you see something similar to a mixed-media project that works exactly this way, and if you were tuned in for the Fall 2021 season then you should have heard of Tatk Op Destiny, I think I learned that too late. So, for a short TLDR, when you give a semi-interesting plot to an insufferable cast of characters you get what Engage Kiss is.

Engage Kiss is my favourite type of show. Not a really interesting synopsis, and has very mediocre ratings, turns out to be probably the biggest surprise of the season. Engage Kiss got its flaws, but definitely is rated way too low.

[Story - 7]
I can't tell I don't have objections about the storyline. The show is mixing too many themes at once, and sometimes it's hard to tell, what should you focus on more. Engage Kiss isn't a typical rom-com, as MAL suggests. There's much more action than comedy (fortunately), but when comedy is present, it doesn't help the show at all. Sometimes this comedy aspect ...

okay so this review isn't going to be super in-depth or anything but i just wanted to put my opinion out there,

so Engage Kiss isn't the deepest anime ever but it sure is hella entertaining, and i'm a little bummed that the first episode or two has given a lot of people the wrong idea, sure it's got a bit of fanservice here and there but with the first episode and the title it feels like it's appearance is that of a highschool dxd type show, and it's damn far off,

first of all, what everyone is talking about, the animation- it's amazing, there's no ...

(At the time of writing there are only 3 episodes out)

Engage Kiss is currently one of my favourite anime this season. The animation is smooth, there’s good quality waifus and it's got a relatively decent storyline. Could it get any better?

Story  9/10 -
The story revolves around our protagonist Shuu. He’s a brokeass guy who lives with a pink haired yandere girl named Kisara. (Unfortunately, many people are put off by Shuu because of the controversy surrounding him. However, if you push past that, there’s a good chance that you’ll still enjoy this anime.) Anyways, in this world there are creatures referred to as “demons”, who ...

Set inside a fantasy world, Engage Kiss tells a tale of the dysfunctional relationship between a demon who harbors unrequited love, and a human who is so obsessed with revenge that he goes to extreme lengths to achieve his goals.

Engage Kiss is an anime that requires the audience to be cultured enough to approach the show with an open mind and not be offended by fictional anime characters even if you disagree with the way they act. The characters have been purposefully made to have a few unlikable traits and flaws; especially the male MC whose relationship with the heroine starts off as a toxic ...

Engage Kiss. The title is so uninteresting that everyone has watched this anime and hoped that this was finally a good hentai. But instead, they had watched a total uninovative, so predictable garbage. The overall quality of this anime is so shitty that even my grandmom could think of a better story and title.
The whole story is situatte on a small island with our main character being a total douchebag. Somehow he is clearing the city of all demons with his demon servant, with whom he has a contract that he has to give him *redacted*. It could be summarized as: Get to know a ...

If you know Maruto Fumiaki from Saekano and White Album 2, you would probably be very surprised to hear that he had written an original battle show. Well, at least I was. After all, both of his most famous works were very firmly in the traditional high school romance genre: it's hard to imagine him writing something so out of his comfort zone. Right? Right...?

Well, it turns out, Engage Kiss is a very Maruto show. He is, without a doubt, a master at playing with the conventions of the romance genre in anime culture, and Engage Kiss is no different. White Album 2 asked the ...

The Devil is a Sloppy Kisser.

Engage Kiss is another A1 original anime, this time of the sloppy make-out variety.
Set on a floating isle metropolis, the city has a slight demon infestation problem. Luckily a whole cottage industry of independent demon hunters has popped up whom the city hires to deal with demon attacks if the contractor bids low enough. Shuu Ogata is usually the one to win these contracts because he bids so low that he’s constantly broke. However, he has a secret weapon in his powerful, pink-haired demon partner Kisara who also happens to be head over heels for him. However, there ...

I watched the 3 episodes hoping it would be interesting, but I guess for me, it was not something enjoyable but ill put my thoughts down so others who have similar tastes do not have to waste time.

Story: Deadbeat MC is a "bounty hunter" killing demons, with a demon, barely scraping by. he has a demon girl living with him, and an ex who for whatever reason still likes him and tries to keep him going. generally, the episodes revolve around a mission that never goes as planned and the beat goes on...

*This review has been written when only 3 episodes came out*
*Minor spoilers ahead*

So... Engage Kiss. I don't like to say this, but this was unfortunately, one of the most horrible anime I have seen this year. Now, taking into account I have only watched the three episodes that were out when this review was written, I cannot say for sure whether it will get better, but even if this anime somehow becomes a masterpiece in the next 10 episodes, I will still have my gripes with this series.

Firstly, this anime REALLY does not know what it wants to be. The general rule of thumb ...

Recommendation: Trashy, full of plot holes and fanservice, and tonally all over the map. It's like a throwback to anime from 15 years ago and your enjoyment of it will depend on just how fond you are of that era.

Engage Kiss is Anime As Hell basically from the opening moments of the series. The protagonist, Shuu, is a loser that bums money from his demon girlfriend, Kisara, and he fights other demons by sloppily french kissing her to turn her into an edgy one winged goth girl. The love triangle between these two and the protagonist's ex girlfriend, Ayano, forms the core of the early ...

A story about PMC Or contractor something like that to kill or capture the demon to prevent them to kill civilian and prevent people to know all the truth about demon that the story I guess because I don't understand a single shit in this anime I don't know is it because translate or my brain The story is sucked it just like Ex girlfriends fighting over MC or some shit and just put fan service to make people want to watch it only good thing in this anime is the art is so awesome character design is good I guess the sound is average

I’m far from hooked, but I’m biting.

While the show’s premise isn’t too original, I don’t think originality always matters. It’s how you tell the story that counts, and Engage Kiss does a ‘meh’ job. It’s a procedural show wrapped in flimsy storylines that often make episodes feel congested. Each week there’s 1) a “monster-of-the-week” they have to defeat, 2) the steady unfolding of Shu’s past and the case he’s working because of it, 3) a sprinkle of corporate demon exterminators, 4) a detective breaking the rules to catch the bad guy, and of course 5) the love triangle. Which brings me to characters.

Right now they’re ...

Engage Kiss was one of two A1 pictures anime originals this season, and unfortunately, I have to say that it kind of disappointed me. It's not that it's bad, but there were some pretty big pacing flaws and just flaws with some of the characters and the story in general. To me, it was an anime with a pretty promising concept that failed to deliver on its potential.
Art: 8
One thing I can’t take away from it though is the fact that the art is great. I thought the character designs were a bit generic, but the animation was really stellar. Every fight scene was ...
