MY Thoughts: Oh man, this is a pretty interesting show. Keima is a strange character who pretty much is only interested in games from girls. The strange thing is, when he actually goes for getting the heart of real girls, he actually gets them. It’s like his world itself is a dating sim because no girl in our world would ever go for the cheesy things he does from banners to strange stockings that he does. All the girls are pretty unrealistic stereotypes but it actually works for the story plot. The only episode that felt really bothersome was episode 4 with the loop. It only felt like it was there to show Keima’s personality a bit more.
The artwork seems rather good although it is really bright and ‘chubby.’ A lot of times, they seem like chibi’s or plastic doll. The ghosts look like strange blobs and seem odd. There’s not much I can say about the artwork since its pretty much like any other slice of life that has come out this around this time.
The voices are really interesting, and its fun hearing the English Sosuke Sagara from Full Metal Panic talking about dating sims! That’s right; Chris Patton is the voice of Keima Katsuragi. And his supporting character is Luci Christian’s voice, which also is the voice of Kaname Chidori from Full Metal Panic as well. She plays the Spirit Hunter by the name of Elucia de Rux Ima. It’s strange hearing there voices in here because they the characters here are almost complete opposite the characters they did play in Full Metal Panic. Another opposite is Hilary Haag who not only plays Tessa from Full Metal Panic, but Mio Aoyama, the rather short and prideful rich girl in this, and the shy Shiori Shiomiya who is more like Tessa in a sense. Basically, if you love the English voices of Full Metal Panic, you’re probably going to like the English voices here.
I actually really like the opening song; it has a rather nice beat. The ending is alright, though not as good as the beginning.
I love this show! It’s really fun show and I look forward to the next season!
