After the death of his parents, Yuuto Amakawa lives a pretty ordinary life in the city. The only problem he has to worry about while attending school alongside Rinko, his next-door neighbor, is his cat allergies. That all changes on his sixteenth birthday, when an Ayakashi—a supernatural creature—attacks him for the sins of his ancestors. Luckily, he is saved by Himari, a mysterious cat-woman with a sword, who explains that Yuuto is the scion of a family of demon-slayers, and she is there to protect him now that the charm that kept him hidden from the supernatural forces of the world has lost its power.

Omamori Himari chronicles Yuuto's dealings with the various forces of the supernatural world, as well as the growing number of women that show up on his doorstep, each with their own dark desires. Will Yuuto be able to adjust to his new "exciting" environment? Or will the ghost of his (ancestor's) past catch up with him?


Omamori Himari takes from the first five volumes of its source material with some noticeable deviation in the content and plot, leading to an anime-exclusive finale.

A Nyan Koi rip-off? Not really. For those who have read the synopsis and went on that basis, let me stop you there. While the similarities of cat-allergies are familiar to each anime, that's pretty much it that each tale will share.

After episode 1, I was actually surprised to want to watch the next episode due to how close the show stuck to the manga's storyline. With a long line of let-downs in the last year for adaptations, I had made sure not too have to much of an expectation for this show, and I'm glad I did as its proven to be just above read more

Yet another ecchi show aired this year proves that trivial things like plot or characters' depth might end solely as a bonus to the brainless fanservice. And I wouldn't mind that!

Omamori Himari, though, was one of the worst and least enjoyable anime shows I've watched lately.

Again, normally, I wouldn't mind fanservice>everything else design, as long as it's at least decent. This anime, though rated R+ lacked it at all!
It's not like I'm watching the show solely of the fanservice purposes, but this one has literally nothing else to offer.

Art isn't horrible, but mediocre at it's best.
Characters' design is tedious and ordinary. Backgrounds are read more

Ecchi and harem, they go hand in hand in the anime industry and are two of the most popular genres within the otaku culture, but this is widely known, so the question is: Does this anime have anything else to offer other than fan-service?

It's answer is: No, while it does have a plot and has some action mixed into it, this kind of a story could be from a kid's dream for all I know.

So after stating that this has no story where does this enjoyment come from, the fan-service obviously, while plot wise it is bad, the way it introduces characters and creates read more

Story: 1/10
I'm not the biggest harem or fanservice fan, but I don't mind if they have a good story and likeable characters. But instead of a good plot with fanservice, it's fanservice with little plot.
I knew all hope was lost when the generic fanservice beach episode was the second one. Then episode 3 was written around fanservice. 'How can we make Himari's breasts/panties show this time?". I wanted to give it a chance, it sounded interesting and for the most part ecchi doesn't bother me. I mean series like 11 eyes, for example, find ways to write fanservice into a scene, but in this read more
