Rito Yuuki's latest close encounters are starting to resemble a straight out invasion! While intergalactic romance is out of this world, attracting such high voltage vixens is not unlike being a fork stuck into an anti-matter engine to retrieve a plutonium bagel; it definitely messes with your head and heart. Rito struggles to grasp how he can love more than one girl at once, all while his inability to confess to his human paramour, Haruna, causes Devilukean Princess Momo's Harem Plan to come to a standstill. On top of that, the transforming assassin, Golden Darkness, is still interested in killing him, but she has her own family issues to deal with. Not to mention, a different darkness lurks among the innocent pandemonium. Things are just as out of control as always, but danger is on the horizon!
Based Off 6 out of 12 possible Episodes. Also, Will be Done when season is finished Airing.
If You've read my last 2 reviews in regards to earlier season of To Love-Ru, then you should know by now that i adore this series with a Passion. Also, In my Darkness review, I stated that I hoped that Darkness 2nd would make an Improvement from the last Season (not Darkness OVA). And from what i've seen, that's exactly that they've done.
Starting Off, Story. The Story of To Love-Ru has expanded and has been brought back to life. Even If the 1st episode did Side-Track a little bit, they furthermore got our interests back (not me, Was interested and hyped to the Max!!). I'll be honest, i've seen more Cliff hangers in this season than i ever seen before in the other seasons combined, that were quizzing to me, and little emotional i guess you could say. What about the Cliff Hanger from the 2nd Episode? I had atleast more than 10 Prediction's as to what would happen after the events that took place form that episode.
As far as Characters Go, Little dissapointed and also F****ng Happy and cheerful to the extreme. Dissapointment wise, It's due to the fact that Lala is not considered as one of the Main Characters, or the Main Female Protagonist for that matter. I mean, she was the main idea and reason as to why Rito is living his life as it is now. That's just my thought anyway. Also, Haruna, F*ck-all Appearances from the last few Ep's (episode's). Again, One of the Main Protagonist's from the original season and She is the woman whom Rito adores and loves, but won't build the courage and testosterone hormone's to even say the slighest thing to her without hesitation, or even stand next to her for that matter. Now, to my cheerful reasons. 2 words; Master Nemesis. I have been waiting since the 1st Season for her appearance in this series, and she is finally apart of the Cast of Characters (Not that she was already). Plus, on a positive note, Nemesis, is everything you would've wanted. I thought she was going to be more discreet and to the point, while always having a dark and hateful personality. But no, Surprisingly enough, she turned out to be a cheerful, straight-up Loli (yes she is a Loli. dont bother arguing, Please.) Which is my favorite out of all. And i'll be honest, Nemesis remind's me of a much more cheerful and happy Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi (From Henneko - The Hentai Prince and The Stony Cat), don't why but i am.

This season continues from the first season of Darkness and feels like a good improvement. We continues on with what we know and love about To Love Ru - lots of ecchi, comedy, boobs, and the ultimate harem goal. The falling of Rito is a science by now with no shortages on that or getting into unintended situations. We finally see a new character enter the harem and she sure is cute. Being dominant and seductive she fits right in and has an awesome outfit, hair style, hair color, and unique in being an Asian based loli compared to the rest of the cast. The shapeshifting abilities she comes with are used completely to her advantage.
For this season we are focused heavily on Rito of course, along with Momo, Yami, Mea, Nemesis, and Mikan gets a bit more bold. Momo has become really bold though and is not holding back at all. A favorite, Yami, is put into the spotlight finally and a big part of this season. There will be a big surprise in store for fans toward the last episodes regarding her. A lot of the main cast we are more familiar with become more secondary this season however, although for me personally this set of characters are much more interesting with stronger personalities.
The story isn't the most epic, afterall, this is a heavily ecchi based and mixed in with the random antics of their day to day lives. It does get interesting enough though about the darkness concept with a large event to follow surrounding it. It is quite well done and interesting, so this season is not just eye candy. Granted many will watch it for just that and you will not be dissapointed either way.
Even though it is intended to be a pervy anime, the coloring and sound feels warming and lively, combined with the day to day life making it a happy, warming and fun anime. The creativity and ability of the wacky random scenarios, both real and imagined are amazing and keep it funny throughout (that catpaw on the train scene is just too epic, this required some talent to come up with given the circumstance).
The To Love Ru series will always remain a top anime for me and not purely for the eye candy or even half the reason. The characters are just plain cute, great art quality and just makes you happy (not to be taken in a pervy way). If you liked the past seasons then this one is just as good or better.
Make sure to watch the uncensored version as that is how the anime is originally intended to be viewed.
*This review is also based off of episode 13/14 which are the ending for the season but oddly are marked as a special on Anime Planet.
Its story are above average,and i know most of us watch this anime dont care about it story anyway(I do care about story).The art is very good,you can see that it improve a lot since it first anime.Sound i dont know much about it but still seem good for a normal anime viewer like me.Characters Yuki Rito the harem king in this story does change a bit in attitude since the last few series.But sairenji and lala are appear less in this story(i know you guys may say darkness is main target for yami san but i still like sairenji more(regardless what happen with the artist marriage problem).In Conclusion,I will say this is a good anime to watch alone in your room and remember to close your door.WITH that say,I see Good EChii moment i give a like.1 point less because it was NOT happening on ME.THanks

ONE PIECE Ukiyo-e: a modern art piece to represent Japan

Note: I am writing this review for those who are already familiar with the To Love-Ru series. Perhaps you had seen the first season of Darkness and enjoyed it, but you're still skeptical of its sequel. Or despite disliking the first season (Darkness), you, for some reason, are still interested. Maybe, even now, you feel ambivalent. I hope this review will help those who are struggling to make a decision. Lastly, I am a huge fan of the series, but I've never read the manga.

"To Love-Ru Darkness 2nd" is just as entertaining as its prequels (To Love-Ru, Motto To Love-Ru, and the first
season of To Love-Ru Darkness); in fact, the disparity between this and its prequels are, in my opinion, little to none. Unfortunately, this implies that many of its infamous flaws are also present in this second season. In this review, I will explore this season's strengths and weaknesses.

Story: 5

To Love-Ru, as a series, has a weak story. After 70+ episodes, there is little character and plot development; for example, much of the content in each episode (addressing the entire series) is Rito stumbling or slipping while female characters are conveniently nearby which results in a perverted scene. He is then chased or lectured, but ultimately forgiven. This exact scene repeats many times throughout this season. I, however, personally enjoy them and laugh occasionally because the show is self-aware that these scenes would only occur so frequently in a fictitious world.

As for character development, if you're here to watch Rito and Lala grow romantically closer, you'll likely be disappointed; there is one scene, but they simply end up reaffirming those same feelings that they had at the conclusion of Motto To Love-Ru. Additionally, more girls are added to the Harem Plan; furthermore, the characters who, originally, never knew about the plan provide their views on the subject. It's interesting to see different perspectives because some conflict with Momo's beliefs, although I had hoped that they would further elaborate on their reasoning. Still, it's exciting to see that the Harem Plan may not be as perfect as Momo makes it out to be. Interestingly, in this season, there is an antagonist (and I don't mean random fodder alien assassins) with a goal (not minor transgressions like kidnapping). I was also pleased that the show didn't feel episodic; there was continuity unlike To Love-Ru and Motto To Love-Ru.

And although it may appear that I dislike the story, I think the lack of progression is justified in some ways. For example, in To Love-Ru's universe, only two years or so (maybe less) have passed since the first episode. I don't know if two years is enough for someone like Rito to suddenly devote himself to over fifteen girls. He's sixteen; marriage, falling in love, and managing the entire universe are things that most teenagers would never think too deeply about at that age. Moreover, Rito is portrayed as an average male student; his only unqiue trait (that is emphasized) is his kindness and reliability when you really need him. So in many ways, I understand why he feels unsure about these things, especially the Harem Plan. The plot makes this clear several times that polygamy is not allowed on Earth; this implies that, for about 14 years, he has been raised with the idea that marriage is between a man and a woman. Maybe he hasn't thought about it until he was 7 or 8, but to ask someone to suddenly change their life values and beliefs in just two years seems improbable. As for character development, I think it's rather realistic that Rito's personality hasn't radically changed. I never expected him to suddenly become a whole new person in merely two years. And yes, several times, Mikan does mention that Rito has changed ever since the arrival of Lala and friends, but it's likely nothing serious as he is still shown to have those same mixed feelings (from the very first season) about marriage, love, politics, and the Harem Plan.

This is simply my opinion, and I just thought some of these things were worth thinking about.

My final note: If you don't like the theme of friendship, you may not like this season.

Art: 9

Compared to the very first season of To Love-Ru, the art has significantly improved (I'm sure many of you reading this know that already). Nevertheless, I don't know much about art; however, to me, the art looks colorful, vivid, and vibrant. I do prefer season 1's art (Darkness Season 1), but Rito's, Yami's, Momo's, Lala's, and Mea's faces are drawn really well this season. (I am in love with everyone's eyes!) Also it's interesting to note that the art is so stunning that when you see even a slight drop in quality, it's rather noticeable. Usually, I have to look for these, but I saw quite a few here -- especially when you're viewing the characters from a far distance (which is understandable). Nevertheless, I was bothered by how bright everyone looked as well.

Another example of good art, I think, is the ending. The planets, Yami, and the flowers are all quite artistic.

Sound: 9

I know I compare a lot, and unfortunately, I'm doing it here again. I only give the sound a 9 because I really enjoyed listening to Rakuen Project by Ray. Secret Arms is fine; I never skipped the opening if that means anything. Conversely, the ending, in this season, is far better. Kawada's Garden is amazing; if you have some extra time, I recommend listening to the full version as well. The background music, however, wasn't memorable.
