I think this is as Slice of Life as Slice of Life gets.

Story: Well... At a glance, it doesn't feel like there's a story element here... But I think there is. And it's quite nice.

Art: It's ... fine. The drawings add to the comedy at times. There's no groundbreaking action, but that's just perfect for what this show is.

Sound: I find the opening theme really enjoyable. One of the characters' voices is especially entertaining as well.

Characters: There's a good bit of diversity among the characters.

Enjoyment: It's an easy going, funny anime with tidbits of drama here and there.

Overall it was a fun watch. read more

"Highschool DxD has too much ecchi/nudity." That's one of the reasons I took so long to watch this series... But for some reason, I decided to watch To Love-Ru before this. So, basically, there's not a lot of ecchi in Highschool DxD in comparison. Anyway, that aside, I found this series to be really awesome, and here's why.

Story (8): I don't feel like this story is completely original. Maybe I've seen something similar somewhere before, but that doesn't really matter. It's still a great plot regardless. The way the story progresses around the main characters keeps your attention constantly!

Art (8): The art is very good. read more

It feels like, compared to To Love-Ru, the OVA, and Motto To Love-Ru, To Love-Ru: Darkness abandoned any sense of shame it had and fully embraced the ecchi scene. I don't think I've ever seen so much ecchi in a series before. There's so much nudity... So much. So, if you hate that kind of thing, this might not be for you. However, personally, I'm not a fan of fanservice either. That being said...

Story: There's actually a pretty good story for To Love-Ru: Darkness. There are two major plots in the works so the series is always interesting.

Art: While To Love-Ru's art was acceptable, To read more

I'll say this right away. Motto To Love-Ru is a massive improvement compared to To Love-Ru. To be fair, To Love-Ru was the first season of the anime, and with that series' success, I suppose it's only natural for the next season to have much higher quality all around!

Story: MTLR has a lot of different little scenes packed into each episode, but the good thing is, at least there's some continuation between them. At times, it feels like some scenes should have gone longer but it doesn't really matter. It was a great show.

Art: A very significant improvement, the art in MTLR compared to TLR read more

Be sure to watch this OVA so you can keep up with the story of To Love-Ru!

Story: Not too much to say here, it's just six episodes - some of these episodes have no real plot to them. Others do though and appear to be important to the story of To Love-Ru. It was pretty enjoyable.

Art: I think in this OVA there's actually a slight improvement in the artwork. I could be wrong though, but if you read this review and agree with me, let me know.

Sound: No real difference in the sound, it's just fine.

Characters: Even more characters have been added to the series, read more

I normally don't write many negative reviews... And this one isn't very negative either. I enjoyed this series enough to be able to watch it all the way to the end, due to hearing about how To Love-Ru ends up getting really good. Well... Maybe To Love-Ru Darkness will be 'really good', but I'll have to see for myself. Anyway... here's my review.

Story: The plot... well, I can't say it was very thick or anything. It definitely wasn't without any story elements. It utilized its wide character variety to have multiple episodes where lots of ridiculous, funny and over the top things happen. There's underlying read more

The third and final season for The World God Only Knows. This series has been... GREAT!

Story: While season 1 was good with its story, season 2 was better. And yet, season 3 is even greater! Season 3 expanded even further into this show's world, introducing us to many more characters such as Ancient Demons and Goddesses. Keima's mission has gotten a lot more complicated!

Art: No significant improvement, which isn't bad at all, considering this show's art is very good as it is.

Sound: Same as above, improvements weren't needed.

Characters: Yet again, the characters have improved drastically. Somewhat of a shame that there are good characters that read more

Sequel to The World God Only Knows.

Story: It's mostly the same premise but there's a lot more depth this time. I noticed that season 2 was definitely better than season 1 since it expanded a lot in the world of The World God Only Knows.

Art: Not much different to season 1's art really. Which is great, because season 1 had very good art.

Sound: Again, no major difference. A very good thing.

Characters: While season 1 was great with its characters, season 2 somehow still managed to improve on that. We get a deeper look at our main protagonist, and even get a deeper look read more

I started watching this series several years ago but I suppose I might have been too young to appreciate it. Was more into the action/fighting phase of anime back then. However, since I started watching it again I have a new appreciation for the series.

Story: Each character in this series has their own problems to deal with which adds a lot of complexity to their personalities. Keima has to free the troubled girls from the monsters inside them that feed off their negative emotions. It's definitely a bit of tearjerker, but also quite funny as well.

Art: The art is nice and has a way read more

So you've watched the first season of Little Busters! Did you find the first several episodes to be a little bit tedious to get through? So did I. But I'm so glad I watched it... Because since I finished season 1, I got to experience the masterfully written story of Refrain. Definitely a Masterpiece in my opinion.

Story: The story is direct follow up of season 1, and now all that build up of character development really comes into play and has so much impact. There is so much emotion in season 2.

Art: There wasn't a significant change in art, and that's a good thing read more
