    It's sexy in a cute way.
    First off: this is our first review. We decided after seeing the reviews of others that they always tend to be biased; picking out animes they were not the target audience for and bashing it down. Typically anything with fan-service tended to get picked on, anything with lolicon tended to have shots taken at it, ect ect. Thus we (my partner and myself) have decided to review for the shows without ...

  • Perfect Artwork/Character Designs but Horrible Story Execution
    I went into this anime with high hopes that it might be one of my higher rated anime, but I was completely thrown off by the story and its concept. This anime is a good example of a perfect imbalance of the positives and negatives. Aside from the story itself, I thought that everything else was perfectly done. In this situation, we have terrible story writing but other aspects of this anime was ...

  • well umm... let's see
    ok so I was skimming thru shows trying to find one to watch. And in the first episode it has this like 13 year old succubus and everyone is telling her that soon she'll have to start sucking life seed out of men to survive. Which made me go wait what?!?!!? Oh yes it's exactly that. Well she says that she will if they will find her a human and there aren't any humans around so she thinks she's ...

  • Not twisted if you....
    Think right Lotte is not human she is a sucubbus so many reviewers are going under this assumption and panning this series for that reason I think the animators made her look to young also but i believe their is a reason for that as a very young girl Lotte witnesses her mother having sex with one of her harem (her mother didn't know this) and she developed a hatred for males which seems to me had ...

  • Cute and challenging
    What a fascinating anime! It's a cute coming-of-age comedy dealing with exceptionally difficult issues. The complex and emotionally challenging situation these characters all find themselves in -- every aspect of it touches on one taboo or another and has managed to offend some viewers. Certainly this show doesnt happen in 21st century America -- but if you view it in the perspective of world ...

    Pretty twisted but kinda cute
    Spoiler alert - I feel like this could be classified as child pornography... It's pretty messed up. Like a 10 year old and a 23 year old is bad enough, let alone the fact that he had a baby with her mom.. that is the same age as her! I would have much preferred if Naoya had ended up with the queen. But if you forget about the huge age gap, this could be a really cute show. The animation is super ...

    Cute, quirky, funny, and doesn't rely on sexuality/nudity
    Within the first episode I was a tad wary of this show, given the premise behind it. 10 year old succubus princess is about to hit puberty and thus will require her to take 'life seed' in order to sustain herself. Life seed of course is attained from sexual activity with the male.

    Given how many anime of this nature have been in the past, I was offset by it but thankfully there is no nudity, ...

    Definitely worth it... If you're ok with some twisted-ness
    As a foreword, don't watch this anime if you are not ok with some loli or over-sexualized moments. Or if you are watching with your parents. Anyways, I fell in love with this anime because it's about a succubus who actually hates men, which makes for a very intriguing plot. Not going to spoil it, but I'm not sure how I feel about the ending; it's really twisted when you think about it logically, ...

    Spoiler Alert: Wrong Ending
    Normally I wouldn't like to mention key plot points, so if you're interested in this anime please don't read this review.

    I liked this story a lot, until the main character suddenly revealed himself to be an exceptional pervert masquerading as a father figure. I have no idea how that ending was supposed to make sense. How can a 'nice guy' fall in love with his daughter's half-sister, who, at ...

    An Enchanting Fairy Tale With A Dash of Sex Appeal
    The animation style may seem a bit too cute for some, but works well to enhance the plot of this endearing, romantic series. It was certainly not what I expected, and had considered not continuing to watch after the third episode, but I'm glad I decided to give it more of a chance. It is a gem that after a bit of polish shows real depth of color and offers a shine that allows it's deeper beauty to ...
