5.0 out of 5 stars Not just another Ecchi anime. April 18, 2011
Verified Purchase
As we all know Ecchi animes tend not to have much character development and not a whole lot of story and tend to seem like every other Ecchi anime out there. This is an ecchi anime with good character development and a decent story although it could have been a little better. All in all it is great anime although it does not closely follow the Manga at all but it stems out and forms its own story in a way and actually works which is a rare find.

The Manga is by far the better of the two. I have the whole Anime series and it doesn't follow the Manga for very long. The way the characters are introduced is unnecessarily sped up. We meet Moka, the succubus, witch, and the Snow Girl in five episodes after that it gets reduced to a silly Harem Anime series. Its light on action and heavy on panty shots. The second season isn't much better, we meet Moka's sister and the parents of the other girls, but the panty shots which were INSANE in the first season are censored by an annoying bat almost all the time! I didn't really like this one but I loved the Manga and would like to see a third season, God willing...

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing July 21, 2009
By Tyche
I was drawn to this series after viewing the new Moka Transformed PVC statue and bought the books in the series. After reading the first book, I was hooked and turned to the anime hoping for the same entertainment. As noted by another reviewer, the anime does not follow the manga in any real appreciable way. In many instances, the stories are changed completely from the original series ( for example, Mizore is not saved from an attacking teacher; and Ruby's guardian is a figment of her imagination rather than a real individual as in the manga). This series is fun to watch just to see the characters come to life, but I cannot help but think it could have been done so much better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Manga vs Anime April 4, 2011
I a personal lover for Anime and Manga, I cannot help but say that I really enjoyed this show. I notice that many do not seem to like it because it does not follow the Manga very well. However, there are many Anime's and Manga that do not follow one or the other. There are only 4 shows I have seen out of maybe 30 or more that followed the Manga perfectly. I do think that one is bad or one is great. I think in both perspectives they are amazing. Its kind of the same thing with Harry Potter. Many people enjoyed the books and didn't enjoy the movies. And those who didn't read the books thought the movies were amazing. Its all opinion I suppose. Sadly my mother purchased season 1 and 2 for me and the images were burned into the DVD and sadly I couldn't finish the whole season. Neither season actually. If anyone has better copies or know where I could purchase them please let me know. Thank you.

P.S.- I'm sorry for those that didn't enjoy there series. There are many other shows I hope you find more enjoyable.

2.0 out of 5 stars there is such a thing as TOO MUCH fanservice January 6, 2010
By Heather
As a fan of the manga, i was really anticipating seeing the funny yet dark,serious, and complex plot brought to life. Instead i got a light bit of fluff that is agressively devoted to fanservice without much substance whatsoever. They turned the main character, who actually becomes pretty awesome in the manga, into an indecisive twit who is always being saved by his harem of beautiful girls. (i'm all for girl power but this is supposed to be a story about the guys growth and desire to protect his friends, not just about the panty flashing a** kicking girls).
there is a panty shot about once every 2 minutes in every episode, and even more gratuitous cleavage shots. instead of having any consistant plot its more of a monster of the week type show.
i was terribly dissapointed in this because it could easily have been an great anime, a touch dark at times, a bit violent, but ultimaly a story about strength, growth, and friendship (with a little romance thrown in).
if you are looking for light-heart ecchi based anime this is for you, but if you love the manga then do yourself a favor and don't buy this one. hell, don't even rent it.
stay far far away.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Heady Blend of Trash and Wit! April 30, 2009
By H. Moro
I have to agree with a reviewer from another website: in the right hands, this would have been a splendid production. Instead, anyone in the US who grew up with Scooby Doo will find themselves in familiar plot territory. I'm told the gratuitous panty shots are a fixture of the original manga, so I'd be almost willing to overlook this bizarre feature of the anime if the creators showed more sensitivity to the emotional content of certain scenes and didn't avail every possible opportunity. This show was almost embarrassing to watch, but I think it has certain appeal: the premise of the show is clever, the protagonists are all likable and humorous, and the emotional play between Tsukune and Moka is touchingly rendered in spite of every possible attempt by the producers to turn this show into absolute garbage. It was perhaps this push and pull between sincere wit and thoughtless churn that convinced me to sit through the entire season in the hopes it would get better. Unfortunately, it didn't.
