Synopsis

The story of To Love-Ru revolves around Rito Yūki, a high-school student who cannot confess to the girl of his dreams, Haruna Sairenji. One day when coming home and sulking in the bathtub, a mysterious, nude girl appears out of nowhere. Her name is Lala and she comes from the planet Deviluke, where she is the heir to the throne. Her father wants her to return to her home planet so she can marry one of the husband candidates. But she decides that she wants to marry Rito in order to stay on Earth. Commander Zastin has been ordered to bring Lala back and has already battled Rito. He reports to the emperor that Rito would be suited to marry Lala, after hearing Rito, who was actually defending himself instead of Lala, says that marriage is impossible unless it is with the person you love. Lala truly falls in love with Rito and decides that she wants to marry Rito after hearing what he said. Her father decides that, if Rito is able to protect Lala from her fiancés, then he can marry her, but if Rito cannot protect Lala from her other fiancés and meet the king's expectations, Lala's father will kill Rito and destroy the Earth.

I first started reading this manga about a year ago. I finished the anime (which sucked, by the way), and I saw that there was a "readaptation," Motto To LOVE-Ru, that followed the manga more faithfully, which sparked my interest in reading the manga. I walked into the manga, not expecting much, and the first few chapters were closely related to the first anime. I dropped the manga for a year after being disappointed, thinking it wouldn't change. I recently picked it up again and actually read the entire series in less than two weeks. Let me explain why I became obssesed with such a read more

After finishing Black Cat, I decided to check out some of Yabuki Kentaro's other works. Since I never found Yamato Gensouki, I figured I'd settle for To-LOVE-Ru, even though he only did the artwork and the premise was practically a carbon copy of Urusei Yatsura's.
To be honest, I actually found the first few dozen chapters to be fine. The jokes were largely hit-or-miss, but Yabuki's artwork and the chemistry between the characters kept me reading. All-in-all, it was a typical ecchi harem that didn't really wear out its welcome.
But then, at some point, writer Hasemi Saki lost steam. Her jokes grew more and more bland, read more

To LOVE-Ru serialized in Weekly Shounen Jump from April 2006 to August 2009. To LOVE-Ru is a Harem, Ecchi, Romance and Comedy manga that is well known to this day. The story is written by Hasemi Saki and the art is drawn by Yabuki Kentarou, which is the same artist as the Black Cat manga series.

I first heard of To LOVE-Ru a long time ago on an anime recommendations video on youtube. But, I don't really listen to recommendations, as opinions differ and I don't think that the reasons he listed would make me like it. But, almost a year later, I started reading the read more

I decided to write this review after learning that this manga series will be completed next week. Despite my enjoyment of the series, I knew that the fanservice that the author provided wouldn't keep it afloat for much longer. I loved the story for it's comedy and yes, I also like the ecchiness. However, I feel that the story could have been much better. Out of the 160+ chapters that the authors managed to draw/write, only about 60-70% could have been considered story-relevant. Which also explains why the characters got a 7, after all, how can the character develop is the story doesn't? The art read more
