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

This anime was my first Ecchi/Harem anime and it was very good...

The story is about this young boy named Yuuto that has a normal life and is allergic to cats, one day he trips with this girl called Himari then he finds out she is a cat/girl and is allergic when she gets close to him, but there's something he doesn't remember and that is she is his protector and gives him an Omamori (amulet) that keeps the enemies away from hurting him, he will meet a lot of girls that will care for him and they want to be with him, they will read more

Another RTLR coming right for your eyes! This time we're dealing with a show that just basically hits the checkboxes for the harem/echhi/supernatural lists, and skips away, happy in it's ability to be perfectly average. The short of it is there is some amusement to be had here, but it's very vanilla. Not a waste of time, but there are other series that do all those thing with much more vigor. Will the RTLR wall of allergies get modified? Or is Emma Frost's position still secure? Let's drop it like its hot!

As I said, this is very much your average harem show. The main read more
