Premise: Japan is the first country to promote the integration of demi-human species into society. After the incompetence of interspecies exchange coordinator Agent Smith leaves bachelor Kimihito as the “host family” of a Lamia named Miia, the newly-minted “Darling” quickly attracts girls of various species, resulting in an ever-growing harem flush with eroticism and attraction.
TheAwersome’s Thoughts: We picked this one up to scratch that itch left by Interspecies Reviewers in exploring the fun and various sexy quirks of different species, and it did a pretty good job! It’s not quite as clever or intricate as the former in its explorations, but is still a funny, fun, and sexy time for sure. The first six or seven episodes were easily our favorites as they introduce a new species regularly and the jokes are fresh. As far as character exploration/development goes, the only kind of fleshing out we get is physical flesh. And there’s a good amount of it: plenty and plenty of anime tiddies here. Specifically in the first half, there were more situations and scenarios that follow typical anime “this sure sounds/looks like something sexual when it isn’t actually” that were done very well and had us cry-laughing, etc. Jokes and scenarios did begin to get somewhat stale and the cast a bit crowded and one-dimensional after six or so girls, but it’s still a fun ride.
TLDR: A fun, tropey, sexy, harem of monster girls that’s got great moments, but gets a little sweaty at the end (not sexy sweaty, unfortunately).
Our protagonist is legally forbidden from engaging in anything sexual with any of the girls, unless he marries one of them (despite their enthusiastic and overbearing consent), so that’s kind of the plot: all of them fighting each other over him or trying to seduce him.
Rachnera is definitely best girl by the way.
