To Love-Ru OVAs are just a whole lot better than the TV-series. At least from an ecchi enthusiast's point of view. Why so? I'm here to tell you.

First of all, there are many good insider jokes, since it is supposed, that you already know the characters and the main plot lines. Such humor wasn't quite yet awailable until the very latest of the TV episodes, as the characters were still pretty much unknown to the audience. So, even when the plot still contains random outcomes (always leading to ecchi scenes, though) for various random reasons, the scenario gained many new and fun details.

Secondly, the characters read more

Story: In terms of the material chosen for the episodes. I thought they picked pretty good chapters to animate. Ones that fans would appreciate watching. No episodes entirely of filler (For the most part) not based on the Manga like the actual series. Just going to give some quick (Except 3 and 6) thoughts on each episode.

Episode 1: This is where Rito turns into a girl, chapter 100. A good place to start. I didn't have a problem with the episode, it was a pretty good adaptation of the chapters.

Episode 2: Mikan feels a bit neglected because Rito spends a lot of time with Lala. read more

Before you click Unhelpful because of the low score read the review and judge based on helpfulness. It's not Agree/Disagree it's Helpful/Unhelpful.

I watched this after the TV Series To LOVE-Ru. The first thing I noticed was the increase in ecchi scenes. If you enjoy ecchi, than you will be quite happy with this OVA. Also the source I watched included a lot less censorship which again should be a positive for anyone who loves ecchi.

The characters are similar to the series and continue to be entertaining. The characters in my opinion are one of the best features of the read more

It's pretty much more of the same, and the episodes in this OVA could have fit in just about anywhere in the series. If you liked the original you will surely like this. Although this is much more heavy on fanservice, if that is even possible. They have a whole episode devoted to still and pans of all the female characters in swimsuits, there is even a subplot of Rito becoming a dog, but it gets ignored in favor of more fanservice. Over all, its not a bad OVA to watch, but if you expecting a continuation of the anime's storyline you are barking up read more
