Inu X Boku Secret Service: Complete Collection [Blu-ray]
Frequently bought together
Ayakashi Kan: a mysterious condominium, widely believed to be haunted, where every resident is required to have a personal bodyguard, or Secret Service agent. When the socially inept Ririchiyo moves in, all she's looking for is a little peace and quiet and some practice at inter-personal communications. However, she quickly discovers that her bodyguard Soushi might not just be foxy; he might actually BE a fox - a fox spirit that is. In fact, all of Ayakashi Kan's residents, and their agents, are more than they seem at first glance: each and every one of them has both human and non-human ancestors. But that's okay, because Ririchiyo does too! Welcome to the weirdest, wackiest mansion in town where no one is entirely human and mayhem is the order of the day, in INU X BOKU SS!

Not to rehash the plot, but the mixture of paranormal creatures in a contemporary setting was fun and creative. I was heartbroken to hear that the mangaka who created this series died recently. We're fortunate she finished this series. She will be greatly missed!
If you love a sweet hurt-comfort romance that will make you laugh and cry (with happiness), you'll enjoy this off-beat love story.
Here have some useless information:
Inu × Boku SS, also known as Youko × Boku, is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Cocoa Fujiwara. An anime adaptation by David Production aired in Japan between January and March 2012. The anime has been licensed by Sentai Filmworks for streaming, and home video release in North America
Inu X Boku Secret Service ticked my boxes, it was very different to what I imagined I was going to by pass it, so glad I didn't.
The story really reflects the truth of how we feel in real life and how different situations or lack of social mixing mould us into
who we become. Our strengths and weakness define us and how we effect others without meaning to or knowing we have done
I watched the 1st episode and had to see the rest from being to end and was by no means dissapointed by the characters,
story line, beautiful drawings which made up each episodes or english dubbing of the anime.
A MUST WATCH.

The viewer quickly learns that Maison de Ayakashi is special beyond its residents simply being wealthy. They share a commonality in their ancestry, they are all descended from unions between humans and monsters. This results in them possessing special supernatural powers. Each resident is paired up with a special secret service agent who is also the progeny of human monster unions.
The supernatural aspect really does little to influence the main story and it probably would have worked as well without it. I think that it serves the purpose of mitigating the pedophilia aspect by making Ririchiyo abnormally strong. This series comes from Japan where they obviously have a much more liberal attitude to pedophilia than we in the West. If this is a severe problem for you then stay away from Inu Boku Secret Service.
Our protagonist is paired up with secret service agent Soushi Miketsukami a young male adult. Most of the series follows the evolving relationship between these two and explorations of their pasts.
My initial impressions of the first episode were not good. It was pretty flat story between listening to the whining excuses of a spoil t obnoxious self centered brat and the apparently unjustified adoration of a strange adult man for her, it was somewhere between nauseating and disturbing. In the following episodes things gradually pick up and by the middle of the series it is actually quite good. Episode eleven is the best and the stories climaxes in episode twelve. Episode thirteen just seemed like it was tacked on the end as a comedic after thought.
The supporting characters vary from the eccentric to the absurd. Many of them are the usual stereotypes. I particularly liked Kagerou Syoukiin and his S and M routine. Most of them grow on you. Watching Ririchiyo, who possess supernatural powers, agonizing over and messing up trivial things like inviting another to tea is very amusing. Soushi Miketsukami fills out well, I would not say I ended up liking him but he has an interesting persona.
