We all know that To LOVE-Ru Darkness is a sequel to To LOVE-Ru. After finally having the time to read this manga, I realized that the plot was having a downfall. Not the "plot" plot but the real plot, if you know what I mean. I'm gonna make review of this thoroughly since this is my first time making one.
The story was... interesting, they could've actually made it better but it was getting nowhere. Rito, who is the main character of the story, is basically struggling to live his life filled with women. I mean, there's nothing really wrong with it, to be completely
honest, I enjoy the "plot" this manga has but with a concept like this it'll be really hard to make a real plot. The basic plot is the have all the women around Rito fall in love with him, basically having a harem. And also there is one thing the got my heart breaking while I finished reading the last few chapters of the manga. I don't want to spoil but the ending ruined my heart, they could've made a better ending. Completely disappointed, it left my heart thinking about it for a few days. I didn't really care about the plot at first but as I continue reading the more invested I become.
Art & Characters:
Kentarou Yabuki has really done a good job at drawing the characters and giving them life. It has really improved since Black Cat.
All the characters in the manga are lovable, you literally can't hate any character this in series so far. I don't know who made the characters personalities but man they are funny. You can't really enjoy the show when you don't have any characters you can relate to. Having characters that you can relate to make it more fascinating to read and you can somehow feel what they're feeling in the story so far. Every character in the manga has their own unique personality and I think that some people might relate to some of the characters.
I'm a big fan of Momo, she's my favorite character in the series. In Darkness, she plays a big role by having the women around Rito fall in love with him, a harem ending. That kind of role may not stand out too much but I still love her way of thinking. As stated in MAL, she became a main character in To LOVE-Ru Darkness since they needed her to become one for the said "plot".
This is where I was shocked, I was seriously speechless with the outcome. I even cried for my Momo's sake(best girl) and the ending that we get is like that?! They could've made it better, having a harem ending or Rito getting to choose a girl where the two of the got married or something. I know he chose Haruna but I'm still not satisfied.
Overall the series is enjoyable but the ending is the most crucial part for me. That concludes my review.
