Based on the manga series by Hiromitsu Takeda, this romantic comedy is about Takeru Ohyama, a typical perverted teenage boy. His new school doesn't require entrance exams, and it just turned co-ed! Unfortunately, his dreams of a happy high school life are dashed when he finds out the school is much more than it seems. All of the students wield a special item—a Maken—to unleash their magical abilities in duels! Can Takeru find a Maken that works for him? Even while trying to fit in at a new school and dealing with all kinds of girl problems?

so good so good, almost enough tits for me personally. I had exciting expirience watchin it with my bestie while feelin myself. It made me feel so dirty it made me feel so naked. I highly recommend this 4 evrybody who likes less words and more actions, other recommendation is to NOT watch it alone.

• story is absolutely unique and totally unpredictable, i enjoyed it anyway bcs i like this genre/set-up
• the artstyle perfectly fits for the story
• the characters where well-rounded. they had flaws and strengths, or were unusually strong/smart/stupid
• the characters react to situations and events in a realistic way
• think others ...

The High School DxD at home: Maken-ki

(Mild spoilers incoming)
Yeah...this is, um, an anime for sure. I'll start off by saying that I don't think the story of this is all that bad, I just don't think it's conveyed all that well here in the adaptation. A faithful adaptation, this is not, here they took quite a few creative liberties in the script, granted I've yet to read the manga but I hope I'm not wrong in saying that I'm sure the mangaka was handling the story better than here - but ...

Recommendation: Not even worth it for the fanservice.

Maken-ki is deeply experimental at its core. The experiment being performed is whether an anime that consists entirely of the most well-worn harem cliches in the industry can somehow be far more loathsome than the sum of its parts, and in that way, and only that way, Maken-ki is a success.

This is a show without a single redeeming quality. The worst part, as it so often is with these kinds of shows, is the main character. Takeru is a pathetic creep that reeks of loser so badly that no one could get laid within 500 yards ...
