Relationships are beautiful, especially when it can be with people who are half human, half demi.
Interviews with Monster Girls take into account Slice of Life and Deep topics at the same time;and if A-1 can do something right, it’s this.
The story mostly happens at school where the events unfold. Our main character, Takahashi sensei, has a slight curiosity to those named demi’s. It’s known to them later on that Demi’s exist in their school, the first one known I believe was Satou sensei, a succubus who tries to avoid crowds for the sake of her, and for the sake of them.
Succubus do not live a normal life, even though we usually just see them as some sort of sexual character. I mean, it’s not wrong, but after the way Satou lives, I see Succubus as something else, one of the most difficult things to live as.
It’s sad to live as a Succubus, since it may be hard to love someone when you have everyone attracted to you sexually. It then begins to take a difficult turn on your life and it affects you in a way that you become isolated from everyone and avoid people.
But that’s why we have our main character.
Takahashi has to deal with many demi’s.
The Fun Vampire Hikari
The Loving Machi
The Lonely but not so lonely after a while Yuki
The beautiful Satou
With Takahashi, developing a relationship with them could prove challenging, but totally worth it in the end.
It wasn't hard to befriend Hikari due to her fun and outgoing personality. After that, it connects to Machi and then to Yuki and so on. It becomes a chain.
Takahashi wanted to help any problems they may have, so he researched quite often on each Demi one at a time. To see what they like, don't like, and so on. Once the demi’s see this in him, trust begins to be build in such a way where there’s almost an unbreakable trust.
You see, I notice that some may view their relationship as odd, and I see where they’re coming from. It can be viewed as weird or uncommon. But when someone truly shows that they care about someone when they aren't usually wanted (because of their characteristics), then of course a strong bond will be created. In this case, Takahashi and his students. He shows genuine love and cares about their well-being and will do anything in his power to make sure they live a happy life where they can live without any worries. With that in mind, I can overlook the relationship that they have.
I do seem to enjoy series where humans coexist with those that aren't too fully human. But seeing how the demi’s are enjoying the human life very greatly, we can basically they're living a human life. But of course in Machi’s case, it can be hard XD.
But Slice of Life isn't all there, the interactions with the characters can be in a way deep and explores further into the problems and they work together to figure it out.
In a way, it can represent modern day discrimination;where certain groups of people are treated unfairly because of who they are.
In this case, Yuki.
Before she became a bright girl, she seemed to be unsocial and someone who avoids people. The reason for this may be because of the power she wields. But of course, Hikari breaks through that barrier like nobody’s business. She loves Yuki and therefore goes after her.
When Takahashi was able to become friends with the demi’s, the world becomes more colourful with a beautiful and stable relationship.
Speaking of colours, the schemes used in the anime give it more shine.
Seeing how broken some of the characters are, it’s really amazing what Takahashi sensei can do as a teacher, and a father figure.
The journey they had together was splendid and the way they care for each other and supports one another, it’s a relationship that we don't see everyday.
The OP and ED are amazing with its catchy song and the way the happiness within the demi’s are represented and portrayed to the viewers is awesome.
It brings me full joy and I always had a smile each episode and a ton of laughs.
Overall the enjoyment was phenomenal. The feelings, the relationships, and the characters. All are good points and it’s definitely one of my favourite of Winter.
Although underrated, it’s a 10/10 in my book.
