Plot sounds interesting, but I'm full of these (crappy) ecchi fanservice series >__> So I doubt that I'd be watching this..

The art is offensive.

When a moderator says a thing of such magnitude the least he/she could do is provide some form of explanation. Or am I safe to assume that if I use any of these anime's art as avatar/signature I will be banned since it is against the rules to upload any "offensive" images to the site and use them as user and club images (General Forum Guidelines; rule 3)?
If so, you should edit this sites' rules and correctly and formally elucidate that this site's definition of "offensive art" includes anything related to the Light Novel/Upcoming anime 'Highschool DxD' so no misunderstandings can be made.

Plot is pretty similar to Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi.Both have school boys killled then resurrected by a female demon/vampire as their servants though this one looks a bit more ecchi oriented compared to other one.

I'm looking forward to this because it's been a long time since Japan made an anime with a high-school boy as the main character...


You must be kidding.


The manga world is overrun by the yaoi fangirls.

The anime world is overrun by the ecchi fanboys.

What's new?

Plot wise rather interesting but just another excuse for echhi? Eh I'll give it a try...

Apr 16, 2011 8:17 AM by Aozure

Hm, interesting. I'll probably watch it.

Well, after Fractale, i realized how calling the main character a pervert all of the time can really drag an anime with a genuinely good concept down, mostly because they wasting time that could be used for proper character/world development on pervert jokes.

I agree it was a little overdone, but Clain wasn't just randomly labeled a pervert. Really only Enri referred to him as such, and only because she had feelings for him and was upset that he didn't appear to return them, and so called him a pervert all the time. It wasn't wasted time (at least, not the first couple of times), it was character development.

With that being said this looks awful. I mean, the concept sounds boring and unoriginal and I'm really uninterested by the character designs. That doesn't mean it can't be good, but the best I can see it being is just another supernatural high school (also ecchi) anime. Of course, I haven't read the light novels so I can't be sure? I guess I'll plan not to watch it and then if everyone says it's really good I'll give it a try.

I'll watch this. I may end up dropping it after a while, but it could be good enough to watch the entire thing.

wow people cry about the mc being a "pervert" before giving it a chance? really? come on...

I've seen enough shit to know what's coming. Ecchi is highly overused.

sounds and looks remotely interesting and I'll give it a shot. wonder if there will be a manga to check out besides an LN.

As for this... I will wait for the studio/director announcement and which anime it will be lining up against before deciding. It doesn't sound very good, but good staff can make a massive difference.

Smells like another stupid harem with ecchi all the way and lolis here and there in a supernatural setting. Won’t watch.


That's a good summary of my thoughts...
