I should never again judge an anime by its cover. Such a heartwarming show this is, glad I picked it up. 5/5. Everyone being so happy was such a wonderful sight :)

I thinkl is awesome how they display rather interesting themes in a very subtle way.
- Queen having sex with 13-years-old Naota and then dropping a 3-years-old child on 16-years old Naota.
- Naota and his dauther meet the Queen's harem and somehow they maid it funny rather than awkard.
- Even the queen has a harem (lets say for medical purposes), she still hold some kind of attachment towards Naota. But Naota seems to just care for her as the bio-mother of his child and nothing more.

It's going to be hilarious watching Naota trying to fulfill his original purpose now that the Queen might also be in the picture and with Asuha situation as Lotte's sister still been a secrete ^^


So, that's what happen.

Rather frank way of examining his gender. And the gig didn't last that long, but they were after such a specific escort as well.

Also, is Naoya actually mad she did something like that to him when he was a teen? Who would be mad for letting someone like that do 'it' to you?

I think it was mentioned in the manga that succubi mature more quickly and only take 6 months to be born.

Nice episode - I was on the verge of dropping this show, but the surprising end of ep 4 got me re-hooked and the whole ep 5 pulled me onto the boat. I'm quite curious where this will be going.

I don't think he was mad because she let him do "it" with her, but rather because she left immediately after only to return three years later to dump their child on the poor little teen.

character biographies state the succubi pregnancy last shorter and lotte is asuhas

And despite how heartwarming, funny and not centered around fanservice the story is, while reading asuhas bio, i couldnt help but think that anime industry needs more lolis who like to go commando xD

This anime is so much better than the manga it's ridiculous.

I just wish I didn't read the manga and ended up talking to people about this show, it's only served as a "buzzkill" for everything I might have liked about this show that is on the right track.

Sigh, I kind of regret how this show has essentially been spoiled to me in sorts of ways and I don't have my hopes when there's no reason for me not to.

We don't watch this anime for the "story" so more skin is better (^.^)


Says you. This is like a milder Kodomo no Jikan with Lotte and her mommy issues, and I'm thankful all the ecchi is being kept on the backburner because after marathoning the first five episodes, I'm sticking with this for all those lovely D'AWWWWWWWW moments this series is providing.

Never in a million years did I think I'd enjoy a show about a loli tsundere Kugi chara trying to start a harem. I'm already hoping for a second season.

This was the perfect episode for mother's day. It did have the clear message of a mother shall do all she can to give happiness, well being and necessary needs to her kids. I personally liked the whole mother message and interaction between Astarotte and her mother. The episode on the other hand with this he a message rather of it's OK to make kids while being young. I had no problems with it until it got more clear. Let's just say I am a no for teen pregnancy, it's not about support but more of health concern. Anyways Mercelida while young being comforted by Naoya as follows,

she looked good in the render and very shown being sad in the spoiler
this is simply because lots of murders were being done but through red wine looks to be the classical royal family assassination method. Despite that Naoya with Asuha visiting Mercelida in her room, had the best emotional scene since Mercelida broke down there but giving life does bring happiness. I highly wonder if Naoya was thinking of suicide because Mercelida left for too long. The diagram shows clearly that Astarotte and Asuha are half-sisters so they have both the right to the throne except the half human of Asuha will not live long nor does it need semen so it could be a plus on one side for Asuha but on the other side her life is not as long as Astarotte.

The other part is the whole sudden school visit that ended really well in the wagon as follows,

best scene where Astarotte and Mercelida reconcile. It was also kind of fun being trapped in a small space with all these clothing. I also found full stitches of Mercelida as a teacher and Enja the school principal in the spoiler
and I must say that Mercelida as a teacher is really professional secretary that would seduce any guy and the teacher does look like the Spice and Wolf girl except with more clothing.

About Astarotte, wanted to mention she looks good in the render mainly because of the ribbon tied to her tail and was most hilarious here as she got angry over Naoya being out all night as in cheating her.

About preview, oh yes! He is in! That person is amazing and shall be funny! Extra yummy fan service of Astarotte? The 7 dwarfs cleaning the place? OK then! Oh yeah, the intermission is nice in the spoiler
sure shows a happy family. Remember no matter your mom being a whore or the worst you only have one so trying to love her is best.

People, do you really think a succubus's organism is the same as a human's? It could very well be that they're not pregnant for 9 months.
Indeed, the pregnancy of a succubus is far shorter and they do give birth faster based on some other series and myths.
viral_hun said:
Asuha is still a half-succubus anyway, even if she doesn't have any succubus traits.
Yes she is half but the traits I wonder which ones are retained other than the DNA vice of forgetting her panties.

Not incestuous but more adulteress. I don't think humans laws of marriage apply to the hell nor even to succubus at all.

Is it just me or did they just referenced "Murder Princess"? o.o


Not just that, but the "Darling no baka!", and the Queen constantly referring to him as "Darling" are very clear references to "Urusei Yatsura".

I like how this show started off being horribly offensive, and with these last few episodes it's been getting better and better.
How the hell was it "horribly offensive"...?

I don't mind adultery in ecchi anime, it's a close step to polygamy, well it would be possible if the evil I-Man didn't step in and say this stuff deserves to be banned.

Aside from that the harem is a kind of polygamy except no marriage obligations. Seriously though I would so have females in my harem that are either good at magic or knights. These harem guys look useless IMO other than looking good.

Surely Naota won't be in Lotte's Harem anymore right! I mean the age difference was bad enough but now he finds out the women he slept with and had a child with is Lotte's mom and Lotte is the sister of his daughter. How the hell could he find it ok to be in Lotte's harem?

When in the Monster Realm (Faerie) (Rome) do as the Monsters (Fey) (Romans) do. If it makes you feel better just consider that Naota is glamoured and unlikely to think things through according to his normal cultural rules.

This is why people who have been touched by Faerie are normally considered to be a little bit "Fey", they have a different perception of reality.

I see what you did there! Har har har!

This show is growing on me more and more, and with the mention that the fight for succession with the current queen, Milchelda (sp?) was pretty brutal, this may turn out to ahve quite a dark obstacle to overcome before super happy ending.

Or there will be no happy ending....I dont want to think about that. Ashuha crying would break my heart!

i hope the queen and nao join back, i'm sure he can handle her, but than that leaves the lotte problem aside which was the initial problem.

This really makes me question how this show will turn out now. Even though Naota is in Lotte's harem, he's acting more of a father figure. And Lotte's mother has a harem of men, but she seems to be in LOVE with Naoto, and not just seeing him as a dick on the side.

I wonder if she will try to go after him to join her harem, cause he clearly is one of her favorites, if not THEE favorite man, she even missed him.

Or maybe we'll get a family ending where Naoto and Merce hook up and they become a true faimly, but thats a lot of energy he will have to put in at night :p


I'd go for the family ending, it's pretty much the best ending you can get from the series.


Yeah me too .. family ending makes everyone happy in the end.. though Lotte's gonna be little pissed of because she's the only one who doesn't know the true behind all of it
BTW: Do I miss any worthwhile anime-romance from guy's point of view in MAL? Let me know without hesitation :)

Somehow.. this really makes me like Merce and Naoya to be together.
Such a touching moment.. I feel that tears run as often as the ecchiness in this anime. LOL

This episode was actually kinda sweet with the talk between the protagonist and the queen. This would be much better without being about a loli succubus trying to build a harem though.

How can they have the same age when they're from the same mother and different father ??
or the mother instantly made an another child after Asuha's birth ?
