What I’m in for: Oppai
What I hate about it: When oppai no show
Other noteworthy remarks: A kind of shinigami that what you see in Death Note or blitch. This one replenishes her energy from a dude’s libido.
I’m happy that this season comes with not just one but two oppai anime worth watching where the other one being Hagure Yuusha no Estetica which I reviewed yesterday (I don’t watch the new Queen’s Blade in the spring season as Queen’s Blade is not my type despite it’s also oppai anime). This show is funny especially Ryosuke who is very honest about his “ecchiness”. Strangely his childhood friend, Iria seems to be fine with it and she is perhaps in love with Ryosuke as well.
Lisara arrived at human world to look for some sort of “the chosen one” in her mission to protect her clan (apparently there’s some sort of clan wars in the underworld too). While looking of that chosen one she’d need an energy source to stay in the human world and she chose Ryosuke as her ‘temporary’ energy source. However she didn’t know that the energy that she would get from Ryosuke is actually his libido where as a pervert Ryosuke has lots of it (probably unlimited!)
Things however is not that easy and as the “energy supply” Lisara ‘forced’ a “temporary contract” upon him where he would continue giving her energy until Lisara finished her mission. At first Ryosuke doubted Lisara’s status as a shinigami (grim reaper) but then he believed it after he saw her fighting a monster. Lisara then told him about a scary truth where Ryosuke’s life will end in 3 months and the only way to extend his life is to help her in searching this chosen one again which is believed to be in his school.
After watching the first 2 episodes I found that nearly all synopsis I’ve read elsewhere (My Anime List, Anime News Network, Wikipedia, etc.) were quite misleading. Those synopsis made it sound like Ryosuke completely lost his H desire for helping Lisara although the truth is the effect is just temporary (and as a true pervert he’d regain it quickly when he touches some oppai). Oh my if only I could use my libido too to power everything from my car to my house… (that would make porn a multi-billion dollar industry!).
