What I felt like after watching To LOVE-Ru
I’ve been feeling under the weather recently (colds, sore eyes, and all that), not to mention I have a summer job coming in a few days, so I’ll keep this short.
This show was all about the boobs and fanservice. The story, as many people pointed out, was totally lame and generic. Production values were so-so and music wasn’t really noticeable, including the OP and ED. Voice acting wasn’t memorable, though it’s been quite some time since I’d watched it. I kinda liked the Star Wars parody in the opening, but really, nothing else stood out for me, save for a pair of large melons.
Personally, I’d lump this with Kanokon as one of those mindless fanservice-fests, which aren’t exactly unavoidable, given the Japanese market.
Haha, yeah, Aroduc was right in the series being awesome solely because of the PENIS BEAMS. Too bad the next episode apparently doesn’t have those anymore, but it has a loli meganekko! That totally wins points from me. Still, at this point, the show’s still wavering between good and mediocre.
Animation was pretty good, though it put me off for a bit a while. Despite the many opportunities for panty shots and stuff, I never actually noticed any of them, which is a good thing. Music wasn’t too bad, but the OP wasn’t that outstanding. The ED, however, was quite good.
Out of these three, I’d say this is definitely the best one. Fight scenes were, in my opinion, well-choreographed, particularly when Maka fought Jack the Ripper. The camera kept going all over the place though, which, while making the action seem more fast-paced, makes it somewhat harder to actually follow what’s going on in the scene. Another problem of mine with the series is that the background seems to have gotten more animation detail than the foreground, where we’re supposed to be looking at. Also, in a few scenes, some characters look like they have cat noses for reasons unknown.
Voice acting in general was okay, but Maka’s voice actor kinda delivered the lines a little flatly. Like she had a cold or something. There was a good bit of cleavage shown in the episode itself too, but hopefully, that’ll die down. Hopefully.
To come (hopefully): Wagaya no Oinari-sama, Kamen no Maid Guy, Neo Angelique ~Abyss~, Kazoku Kyouran Nikki, Nabari no Ou, Kurenai, Vampire Knight
