One year ago, a UFO containing 150 aliens crash-landed off the shores of Kasai. Because no one could fix their ship, the Japanese Government decided to bestow upon them the designation "DearS" and make them into Japanese citizens, teaching them the language, customs, and culture of Japan. However, in order for them to become more familiar with human society, a home-stay program has been enacted to allow them to mingle with other humans.

One misty morning, a truck carrying a capsule that housed one of these aliens ends up dropping it into the riverbank, releasing her from her confinement. She is eventually found by a high school student named Takeya Ikuhara, who saves her from being hit by a truck and takes pity on her, despite being extremely distrustful of their race and wanting nothing to do with them. Upon being named Ren, she imprints upon him as her "Master" and serves as his personal "Slave," leaving him with a "DearS" who wants to remain with him no matter what and bringing his ordinary, alien-free days to an end.

DearS is a combination of a failed Chobits clone (lacking any of the warmth that made that series so endearing) and, depending on your gender, offensive pro-slave rubbish. It's also uneventful, lacking a story and instead containing the same perverted nonsense you've seen before already until the episode count reaches 12-13.

To start with, the premise is beyond dumb. A UFO crashes into Japan, 150 aliens - who happen to be submissive hotties - emerge, and they're welcomed by the world. Because humans are, as we all know, kind and understanding creatures by nature, no attempts were made to capture and experiment on the aliens. It's read more

It's a cute little short series animé, similar to Chobits from what I've seen of Chobits, but hey, if you like that sort of thing, DearS does it pretty well. Some of the fanservicey stuff in this is SO over-the-top it's past the point of annoying and more towards the point of amusing, because I don't think they took themselves completely seriously.

So, who should watch this? If you want a relatively light-hearted plot with some situational comedy, sort of your typical high school thing and a fair bit of cuteness and a mild bit of seriousness, this isn't a bad choice. If you're up for read more

DearS is proof, that reading reviews before jumping into a series is a good habit to have. DearS is pretty much generally regarded as "that awful Chobits ripoff" so I went into it with pretty low expectations. I wasn't disappointed.

So, a space ship crash-lands just off the coast of Japan, with 150 humanoid aliens on board. Oh, and they all look like super hot high-schoolers with supernatural abilities and a weirdly submissive nature. (Yep, this means EXACTLY what you think.) The ship is FUBAR, so they are stuck on Earth, but that's no problem, since the humans welcome them with open arms, naturally. I mean, read more

-Disclaimer: I am NOT a PROFESIONAL reviewer I’m only a anime fan trying to give feed back to other anime fans with that said one to the review-

Ok first I just want to point out that yes I liked this anime it was my first harem and its what made me like them so I’m not here to bash it.

I don’t understand why so many people hate this the story was a 6 it wasn’t that great I will say that but I absolutely loved the characters were funny and enjoyable to watch the relationships were a bit strange I didn’t like that the DearS read more
