Rito Yuuki remains unsuccessful and indecisive with his love for his crush, Haruna Sairenji, and the alien princess, Lala Satalin Deviluke. Meanwhile, Lala's little sister Momo also falls in love with Rito and works on building a harem for him in hopes of giving herself a place in Rito's love life.

To do so she enrolls in his school to secretly support all of Rito's love interests and even attempts to find him more, including the recently enrolled alien assassin Konjiki no Yami, also known as "Yami," who puts off her next bounty because of him. However, Kurosaki Mea, Yami's little sister, intends for Yami to return to being an assassin.

To LOVE-Ru Darkness continues from the events of To LOVE-Ru with new girls, new foes, and even more lewd moments.

To love Ru was a phenomenal manga, for it is own genre it made a revolution - ecchi manga with an enormous amount of fanservice, yet the series didn't forget about anything else - good characters, interesting stories, great art, when it ended, after some time To love Ru darkness came out - the best harem manga of all time, while also being one of the best manga ever. Let's talk about it.

tl;dr: An incredibly well made ecchi harem manga with a surprising amount of depth, though one that still doesn’t have a proper conclusion.

To Love-Ru Darkness is a direct sequel to To Love-Ru that picks up pretty much exactly where its predecessor left off. However, there are major differences between the two such that a change in title felt very much warranted. The first the most immediately obvious difference is that Darkness is much more explicit with its ecchi as compared to the original, and seeing as that was one of the core elements of the original it’s hard to see that as anything other than ...

Preliminary (Unknown/100 eps)
To LOVE-Ru was a very enjoyable series. Likeable protagonists such as the gleeful Lala, appreciable plot (when there was one), nice fan service from time to time.
And then came Darkness.

Most of the likeable protagonists became secondary characters. The plot became unnecessarily serious. And as for the fan service, well, in a way... it completely disappeared as the series became softcore hentai.

By the way, on a completely unrelated note, remember Lala ? Yes, the prequel's protagonist. A joyful maiden who's apparently in her 16. Wait, 16 ? Fan service ?... No it's okay, the fan service shouldn't matter since it's completely censored.
Anyways, if you ...
