It was censored but I expected a lot more light beams. In my opinion it's watchable.
The character designs changed and I am not sure what to think about it. The colors are a little strong especially Mea's hair but I guess I'll get used to it. I liked the previous art better ^^

the adaption was a nice start for the new season.

i feel like this is a common reaction to art change

to love ru change to motto must have had the same reaction but ppl ended up loving it more. and tlr darkness improved on that and ppl were skeptical and then liked that as well

ill give ppl a couple episodes before they get used to it..honestly im glad they keep improving on the art and animation currently its the highest quality ecchi ive seen if u dont count the gatari series.

Woah the art style looks pretty different. Although I'm pretty quickly getting used to it. The censors are annoying but I think it's still watchable. Once it's uncensored I'll definitely be re watching it for research purposes.

Great start. Sexy drunk Haruna is best Haruna.

thats called marketing for u!

ppl demand for uncensored so they will provide uncensored....for a price that is

honestly im not going to watch anymore till i get my hands on the BDs and i guess the only reason ppl will watch this censored is for the plot

Glad to have this series back. Animation seemed different, but that's to be specter since Darkness aired in 2012. But some of the character designs were a little... Off. Especially Rito's. Animation looks really good though. Also, the OP and ED are really great <3

Gonna put this on holds cause this is the one series I have watch uncensored.

I liked the episode, enjoyable, but one thing which I didn't like which was different from past seasons was the animation and art. Both different in a bad way in my opinion ...

Lala still a non-character, with Momo still having usurped the top heroine slot.

Somehow, it still doesn't feel like, for lack of a better word, "my" TLR. The OVAs for Darkness1 were excellent. Why does this season feel so wrong in comparison?

So I'm either losing my fucking mind, or thy overhauled the animation style a bit.

Not sure how I feel about it. It's not that it's bad per se, but it's almost like they went too overboard with it. Like it seems as though they added a lot of shading, and some glossiness, but, like, too much of it. I noticed the crazy amount of shadowing/shading when Momo was on the bed, and all of the characters seemed to have that extra sheen on them, especially Haruna in the bed scene.

It feels extra out of place seeing as how the last OVA came out like, what, a month or 2 ago? And even that one doesn't use this new art style.

I also seems like while using this art syle, they've kind of toned down character movement. Characters seem more stiff, less movement scenes shown, they kind of stick to the chest up where things don't move as much.


But, oh well. THE HAREM IS BACK!! More Momo and more Yui now please.

The animation is definitely a little different. A few badly drawn frames but I'm sure it'll be fixed in the BD. Such as



Anyways, Sairenji-chan looked really sexy especially with her drunk voice.

You're not the only one, the animation went down the drain compared to season 1.

I wouldn't be as opposed to watching the censored version if they did something neat with the censors (like the censor labels in the trailers or mini versions of the characters) instead of dull fog and streams of light.

Hopefully they'll work a bit more on the animation for the BDs (along with removing the censors of course). I know some producers that do that at least (Shaft for example)

Yami and Kotegawa <3. Gotta rewatch this one once Blu-Rays are out. Censorship in this one is terrible. Liking both the OP and ED.

Yay its back!

I like Momo, but IMO she's adamant to the harem plan because she's too scared to take the leap and confess to Rito, afraid of being rejected. So instead, why not make Rito a "for everyone" MC instead of a stick-to-one, heart-breaker.

On another note, what horrible censorship!

I've been too spoiled by the uncensorship of the previous seasons. Planning to rewatch Darkness 2nd when BD releases anyways.

The tripping god is back and 'accidentally' falling on everything.

I'm not gonna mention the censoring cause I like to be different.

Pretty great first episode over all. Sairenji drunk brought out a great personality, i like her much better that way. Now she doesn't dwell near the bottom of my Rito's harem rankings.

The art of the show seems different somehow, but it still looks great, so no worries there.

The OP and ED seem inferior to season 1, but maybe they'll grow on me.

Nice to see Kotegawa again, hope she has a more prominent role next episode, but she will sooner or later.

Finally, To love ru darkness 2nd season starts airing. I have waited three years for this. For starters the animation of some parts were distorted and the character designs felt borderless, don't get me started on the censorship part. The anime didn't exactly adapt from the part it left of in the manga. But all in all the episode was great, all the girls look as hot as ever and especially in this episode haruna gets alot of screen time. Rito's falls are as perverted as ever,Momo is still working towards her"plan" and if u watch till the very end then there is a bit of for shadowing on a an upcoming character.Manga readers will know.The voice acting was very well done 10/10 on that. Hopes are high :D

thats cuz nisekoi isnt an ecchi series so there was no need to have less fog...infact it put more fog in order to sell it at a younger audience. thats called marketing.

i doubt they will change the animation quality for the bds but they will probably improve it in later episodes....honestly i looked at this episode and i thought it was fine. i actually like the saturated look.

BEST ANIME CHARACTER IS BACK!!!

Momo's glorious anime is finally here and the Harem plan is on it's way!

Goddammit....gotta wait till BDs to properly fap understand the sophisticated plot that is TLR Darkness.


And Oh boy....Feminists will not like episode 1 of this....

DRUNK GIRLS!

White cis hereo male taking advantage of said DRUNK girl....

And the worst crime of all...



^MANSPREADING!!!



All in all, a great first episode to establish the TLR Darkness mood....can't wait for Master Nemesis to make her appearance soon...

And my favorite anime returns for it's fourth series, great episode but if this follows the major plotpoints of the manga, this season will be even better than the last, provided they don't rush it.
