<div>This is such an amazing anime, I loved it!!!! For its art work, to the voice acting and everything. The have a very nice plot very easy to follow yet interesting, this is one one of the few unique shows that you hardly see around and is planned out very awsomely. It has it's sad,happy,dramatic ...ect moments that makes you wan to watch more of the show. The voice actors do a very nice job of playing there voices and it really suits the character. Lastly the ending of the show is really wowing at least me it was and it made me just want to applaudand cheer and all this but anyways this is an amazing show and I hope that whoever watches this will love it as much as I did. In short this was an amazing drama comedy with a sprickle of action anime and I hope that you will enjoy it too !!^^</div> <div>p.s. I normally don't write review but this one deserves one!!!(actually this is m first one xD!)</div> <div> </div>

Ok The first thing you need to know about Inu x Boku is that it is NOT a loli con despite the child like appearence of the female lead Ririchiyo Shirakiin.

What it is though is a story of personal growth and improvement between two people who, despite their outward appearence and demeanour, are very socially inept in theor own ways. Ririchiyo comes across as rude and downright mean at times but this exterior hides a vulnerable and awkward over thinker.

As the story progresses we come to know the various residents and Secret Service members who inhabit the Maison de Ayakashi building and we are drawn into their lives through the drama that follows yokai, people who posses demonic powers.

Its a fun a ime and a sure laugh but there are times when you will want a tissue handy. It's the perfect anime for those who what something light and topuching with romance and comedy thrown in. While its market is very much shounen there is something for the ladies in here too. One to watch between your binges in heavier stuff or if you dont want to think too much.

Inu x Boku SS

By the first episode, I was already falling in love with Soushi Miketsukami c;
I have to admit, I really didn't like Ririchiyo's personality at first. Eventually, I tolerated it, since she has a reason for it. :D

This anime doesn't seem to include a lot, especially only if you have only seen the first episode. The characters stay at a high-security apartment building, Ayakashikan. It provides special attendants called the SS {Secret Service; "bodyguard"} in addition to housing humans with demon ancestors.

Of course, fiery Ririchiyo gets sparkling {Literally!} Soushi Miketsukami {<3} as her SS. She appreciates his services, but tries to tell him that she doesn't desire service from the SS since she came to be alone. However, he insists that she is his only reason for living.

Oh yeah, I can't forget- there's a little secret that Soushi is hiding from Ririchiyo. When you figure it out or look for spoilers on Wikipedia {Am I the only one? xD}, you might as well *facedesk* because it is so obvious and sweet.

The plot surprised and pleased me. It ended with inspiration, as well as something else..In addition:

  • Music = Beautiful
  • Animation = Amazing
  • Characters = Awesome

Too bad the anime is over. Time to read the manga :D~<3

{I would recommend this anime to anyone who enjoys fantasy, transforming people, fluffy-sparkling-fox-boys<3, romance, and shoujo}

If you're still a novice anime viewer, love the manga, a female (gay male included), a straight male with poor sense of humor, or a hardcore lolicon, then you'll enjoy this anime to its fullest.

I say that because this anime contains 90% of poor repetitive comedy and only 10% of worthy viewing materials, in my opinion. There's no doubt that people of such demographic I've mentioned in first paragraph will not be able to get enough of shitty comedy presented in this anime. The 10% of significant plot screen time will just be the icing on the cake.


The story is nothing you haven't seen before (granted you're somewhat an experienced anime viewer). Two people searching for someone to help understand themselves due to their cruel circumstances in the past caused by strict family traditions with a mix of Japanese folklores.


Characters are fun and diverse, but the poor choice of gags render them insignificant and dull.


Animation is fluid, and the art quality is pretty much what you would expect in anime these days.


Voice acting is fine. OP and ED songs are crappy to mediocre depending on your music taste, though there's one INS song I liked.


In my opnion, this anime should have been a short 3-4 OVAs to maximize the romance aspect and not not be ruined by 10 episodes of crappy redundant comedy.

So, I'd suggest you watch 1-3 episodes first and see if you agree with my feelings toward the comedy aspect of the show. If you do, I'd suggest you skip to episode 10 and thank me later.

Stay safe.

So i want to talk about Ririrchiyo for starters.Who could be a more delicate , kind  and beautiful girl.

In my point of view she is not the typical tsundere character but something much more.

Miketsukami is a character that gives you a good point of what is coming next if you pay attention to him.He is another great character which is made to appeal and this is maybe the best way to describe him.

I don't lke to spoil certain parts of any anime that is especialy so little in episodes so i will leave you with something that best describes the full Inu X Boku SS experience.Watch to witness how can something from total sadness evolve into a great story of pure love and inocence.
