Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou

When a hapless human teenager named Kurusu Kimihito is inducted as a "volunteer" into the government exchange program, his world is turned upside down. A snake-like lamia named Miia comes to live with him, and it is Kurusu's job to take care of her and make sure she integrates into his everyday life. Unfortunately for Kurusu, Miia is undeniably sexy, and the law against interspecies breeding is very strict. Even worse, when a ravishing centaur girl and a flirtatious harpy move in, what's a full-blooded teenage human with raging hormones to do?

This story revolves around Kimihito and his household of monster-girls. The girls are introduced episodically, and the rest of the anime shows Kimihito and the girls' day-to-day lives. The girls are part of an International Exchange program to introduce the world of humans to the world of mythical monsters.  I would have liked to see more with the story, so I guess I'll have to see what the manga has in store. The anime kind of felt like a preview for the manga, since the episodes really only introduce the girls and don't go much beyond that. Still, the interactions in the anime give you a sense of each girl, how the world is reacting to the new monster population, and how Kimihito is coping with his new housemates. The anime did do a fair job explaining each girl's feelings towards the human population as a whole, but doesn't show them growing or changing those attitudes (Kimihito being the exception). One thing that wasn't answered was the Exchange part of the International Exchange. Were humans going to live with the monsters?  The animation is a little sloppy. For one, you never actually see the girls move, or at least, from the waist down. And when you do, it's not as crisp as the rest of the animation. An example would be Miia, who apparently flattens her tail when she moves, despite it being round any other time.   I particualrly liked the opening song "Fall in Love", and it was one of the few times I didn't immediately skip to the bulk of the show. However, I felt the ending wasn't memorable, even though it showcases the MON-squad.  The characters were interesting, although they fell easily into harem-trope categories that I have seen before, like air-head and aloof-noble types. The thing that set the girls apart, though, was the monster backgrounds that gave them those properties. Such as, Cerea was slightly aloof and nobel because that's how her entire race is. The strength of a harem anime, though, lies with it's protagnist, Kimihito. Unlike many other harem protagonists, Kimihito is competent and now shown to be a complete idiot. It's actually refreshing to see a protagonist that manages to build his harem by treating the girls like... actual people with feelings.  Overall, I liked the anime. I liked the interesting take on monster-girls, I liked Kimihito. Hell, I even liked the goofball screw-up that is Smith. I just wish the anime has been more expansive and not felt like a commercial for the manga. 


First of all, I just wanna disclaim that I have never been a big fan of ecchi / harem animes, but I'm going to try to review it either way! So this was the anime I got all hyped about. ''Yeaah anime monster girls with some ecchi in it, this is going to be nice!'' But this was not my cup of tea to be honest. I have watched a couple of ecchi and harem animes before, but this is definitly not one of the best ones. Most of the people who have rated this a high rate must have been the targeted audience (around 20 and cis male) so don't just assume that it's a great anime because of the star rating. As a person who is biologically speaking a girl (who is attracted to females too), I have found enjoyment in ecchi / pantyshot animes (even though the targeted audience is men). But I've only enjoyed them if it was restricted and I wouldn't get unrealistic boobs shoved in the picture every second scene and there is still a reasonable story behind it with interesting characters. But so far, 2 epsodes in, I can't see any of that. It is sad how they threw away an amazing idea and amazing character designs on... this... To be honest, the animation style gives me 2012 flashbacks, it feels like the ecchi style hasn't changed since then and it's just boring by now. I mean come on. I don't hate the style, and some parts are really well animated, but it gets boring to see animes with the same style over and over again. I haven't really been a fan of unrealistic bodies either. I am not going to bash on people who enjoy this, but for me this is more like a porno where no one really cares about the story but just want to bust a nut and then wait a week for the next episode. The only good things I can find in this anime are the original character designs and that some parts are really well animated and cute, but only a couple of scenes. The characters all kind of react the same and it's annoying. To finish this off, great character designs, the poster seemed great, but oh no you have no idea what you're actually signing up for. Nah, not my cup of tea.


So, I like some ecchi and harem anime, when they are done well and have enough depth to keep the story going despite jiggling melons and awkwardly placed motorboating. I thought this would be pretty interesting given the monster girl Demi human take. I expected something light hearted and silly, and mostly that's what I got. What I did not expect was practically soft core porn. There were grossly elicit awkward scenes that were very sexualized (laying an egg, peeling skin off a snake tail) in a way that made me feel incredibly uncomfortable. I was was embarrassed watching the show, even though no one was around. It was just weird. Now, I'm all about Japanese eccentricities and their weird openness, but I think that this was tailing a bit of a line for me. I'm not saying that this show is awful and no one would like it, but it's definitely not for me and I definitely wouldn't recommend it to others, not even my harem anime obsessed friend. Overall the story was lacking depth and direction. The characters felt one dimensional and stale. Interactions felt awkward and forced. I was often confused as to why characters were acting certain ways, especially Ceria the centaur. Really I don't think anything made much sense and events weren't laid out in a linear story line. If there was any plot, I didn't see it. Animation was not bad and they really honed in on the more (ahem) intense moments of the show with detail and much more precise animation. If you are more open and comfortable with the premise of such an anime then try it out and see if it's for you. If you think that semi-bestiality is not your thing then I would recommend you avoid this one and spare yourself the awkward moments.
