Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls the complete collection contains episodes 1-12 plus 2 OVAs. No one expected the government to suddenly acknowledge the existence of demi-human species like harpies and centaurs, but when a careless Integration Agent shows up on Kimihito Kurusu's doorstep with an attractive Lamia in tow, he suddenly finds himself designated as a "Host Family". This might not be so bad, except that while Miia's top half is all girl and quickly develops a crush on her new human host, her snakelike bottom half makes that crush literal with a tendency to squeeze the life out of him! Plus, there's also the little problem that it's illegal for humans and non-humans to have THOSE kinds of relationships.With woman-in-black Agent Smith always sniffing about for improprieties, things only get more hectic in the Kurusu household when bird-brained Papi the harpy and master-seeking centaur Centorea need places to roost and stable. As the house gets crowded with even more captivating cuties, can any human male survive under such tempestuous and tempting conditions? Special Features: Music Videos, Japanese TV Spots & Promos, Outtakes, Almost Every Day! Shorts, Clean Opening Animation and Clean Closing Animation

Fortunately, our protagonist is a kind and responsible man who only sees the monster girls as regular girls. The only problem is that he’s constantly surrounded by temptations…and dangers. Will his body break before his will? Tune in to find out.
- Comments: This is an Ecchi. As such, the fan-service is extremely high. Not only that, it isn’t your typical fan-service either. As the women are mostly monster girls. If none of this sounds appealing to the viewer, I strongly recommend passing on this. If you’re a viewer accustomed to the Ecchi genre, and are fairly open-minded, there shouldn’t be a problem. Like most animes, I strongly prefer the Japanese dub over the English one.
- Analysis: Most of the girls in the anime just want to be accepted. Some more than others. This is a very realistic and relevant concept, as many people, or even animals, face discrimination. If more people could see the similarities rather than differences, perhaps others would be able to get along better (like with family and friends).
- Features: English audio, and Japanase audio with English subtitles. Includes 3 discs: Episodes 1-9 on the first, 10-12 on the second, and the third disc contains the OVAs and Monster Shorts. The run-time is about 5 hours, excluding the OVAs. This anime is rated TV-MA for strong sexual content, and dialogue. Furthermore, it's mostly uncensored.
- Conclusion: Due to the sexual content, and plenty of fan-service, I only recommend this to viewers accustomed to the Ecchi genre. If you’re fine with animes like Prison School, Shimoneta, Dragonar Academy, etc., then there shouldn’t be any issues. A very funny, crude, entertaining, and stimulating anime about monster girls for mature viewers. For the most part, this anime is uncensored.
- Recommendations: Dragonar Academy, High School DxD, Shimoneta, Shomin Sample, Juden-Chan, The Devil is a Part-timer!, Binbougami ga!, Prison School, Sekirei, Kobayashi-san, Rosario + Vampire, Samurai Flamenco, So, I can’t play H!, HyperDimension Neptunia: The Animation, and Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid.
It is one of the best harem ecchis ever created.
First evidence is what it has given birth to: the whole Monster Girl phenomenon. Prior to 2011 Monster Girls certainly existed in manga and anime, but mostly as monsters to be feared and avoided or defeated. It was Okayado’s (pseudonym for Inui Takemaru) genius to turn them into girls to be lusted after,... uh,... “dated”. Three years prior to the beginning of the story, the Japanese government publicly announced the until then secret existence of monsters,... uh,... demi-humans who (mostly) wish to live in peace with us, and in order to encourage constructive and peaceful interaction between humans and demi-humans in Japan, the government carefully botched,... uh,... passed the Interspecies Cultural Exchange Accord, a law regulating human/demi-human behavior: no demi-humans can harm humans, no humans can harm demi-humans, and absolutely no humans and demi-humans can ever have sex with each other, under penalty of imprisonment for the human and deportation for the demi-human….
Guess which section causes the most trouble for the hero and his harem….
Then to top things off, after his harem, through no fault of his own, has already expanded to three, Ms. “Smith” (obviously and hilariously based upon the characters in the Men in Black series) tips Kimihito Kurusu off about an upcoming rules change (WITHIN THE HEARING OF THE GIRLS): humans and demi-humans WILL shortly be permitted to marry so as a test case he will be forced,... uh,... strongly encouraged to pick one and marry her….
What could POSSIBLY go wrong with that, the world wonders?
What follows would be at least somewhat entertaining regardless but Okayado’s second act of genius is what makes it sublime: this is one of the best constructed harems I’ve ever seen: sneaky snake Mia, birdbrain Papi, annoyingly noble Centorea, utter mystery Su, tragedy addict Mero, bondage fetisher with a hidden heart of gold Rachnera, and chunibiyo Lala make up one of the weirdest harems anyone has ever had to deal with, and that doesn’t include the at least somewhat interested M.O.N. Squad girls who after being forced to watch over and protect these lunatics on various occasions, demand some dates with Kimihito themselves in return… and find themselves also being attracted. (The only regular female character who seems completely immune to his “charm” is the extremely lazy and either utterly incompetent or coldly calculating Ms. Smith who deliberately uses him like a doormat.)
This leads into Okayado’s third act of genius that makes this into something I would recommend that everyone at least try watching: the hero of the story, the leader (and target) of the harem: Kimihito Kurusu.
Now, personally, I don’t care that much for harem stories, in part because I usually have difficulty believing that the boy at the center would EVER be that attractive to the girls under any circumstances you could imagine. Not this time. More than any other harem protagonist I’ve ever seen, Kimihito’s ridiculous and mysterious to himself attraction success makes perfect sense. Why? Is he rich? No. Is he handsome? No. Is he powerful? Absolutely not! So what the heck is he?
He is nice.
He never volunteered for this, in fact he was blatantly and deliberately tricked into most of this, and on top of this he faces extreme injury or death several times an episode so does he ever lose his temper at or offer any severe criticism to the girls? Even when they arguably deserve it?
No. Never. Not. One. WORD. He even severely restricts his criticism of Ms. Smith (who usually DOES deserve it).
No WONDER they all fall in love with him, because he is the perfect friend and would make the perfect lover and the perfect husband. Exactly why he is like this has yet to be revealed (in 13 volumes of manga translated so far), but something even more extraordinary is revealed in Monster Musume manga Vol. 8, when Kimihito and company meet several other human males matched with demi-humans (or wishing to be).
What’s their secret? They are not rich or handsome or powerful, either, they are simply nice and willing to make the effort, and the monster girls seemingly find this most appealing.
If Okayado is trying to teach a lesson here, it’s a good one.
The 12 episodes and 2 OVA’s of the anime pretty well cover the first 6 volumes of the manga (while the 60 “Shorts” are completely original) so with 13 volumes of manga existing it is arguably about time for a second season if there is ever going to be one, but I haven’t heard of anything yet.
In the meantime I’d strongly suggest giving this anime a try and seeing how the whole monster girl phenomenon got started. The separately available and much cheaper Blu-ray and DVD versions are worth considering because the biggest thing they really lack is the soundtrack CD exclusive to the Premium Edition.
Note: One thing worth mentioning and clearing away potential confusion about is the set of Art Cards included in the Premium Edition. There are 12 of them, and they are based on the 14 end of episode scenes both showing and describing in detail monster girl species and subspecies, as if you are viewing a two page layout in an encyclopedia. The difference in numbers is because Sentai made a screw up: for reasons unclear they neglected to print Art Cards showing the pages from the 2 OVA’s. Why? I’m guessing sheer incompetence, but I might be being overly critical just because Sentai ALWAYS does this. Maybe if a 2nd season of Monster Musume is ever made and Sentai gets the rights, they will include these two missing cards in the limited edition of season two,...
while forgetting something else. Then again Sentai might finally learn their lesson…
if they get bought out by Discotek….
I have the earlier English Sub version, so I had to buy the one w/ English Dub. To be honest, I like the English Sub version better. I think you get a more literal translation; I will be watching it again to see if the second (or a third) viewing changes my mind.
I hope there will eventually be a season 2 of this series.
If your looking for something with a good story line with a lot of depth look elsewhere.
Although it does have some story line the entire anime is just the guy getting new house mates. The editorial review sums it up fairly well.
I thought it was funny and different, the animation was well done and the English voices were done well. Would I recommend it? Sure if your a fan of harem type anime and enjoy some fan service.
