Motto To Love Ru

One should always understand other people’s customs before making commitments. Unfortunately, Rito had no idea the planet Develuke even existed when their Princess Lala teleported naked into his bathtub, let alone that touching a girl’s breasts is how they propose marriage! Given that he was in the tub when she appeared, Rito’s now engaged to a beautiful girl with a pointed tail. What's worse: the girl that Rito really loves is still completely unaware of his feelings.

Motto To Love-Ru as you can probally tell from the name is the sequel series to To Love-Ru (What is it with these Japanese and such random names...motto?) Rather than the flowing straight forward plot of TLR Motto instead follows a format of each episode consisting of 3 mini continuityless mini-episodes. Much like the OVA Motto has a lot of stuff taken from the manga which was never explained in the anime- ghost girl's physical body, Run's idol career, Celine the plant girl and to a lesser extent (they were sort of explained in the OVA) Lum....sorry, La La's sisters. The animation quality in this series is top notch. The theme tune is pretty good (though nothing on the previous one) and it really looks very different and more advanced from the get go. The actual entertainment value of the series however....that is a more debatable matter. As I said each episode is actually three episodes of six-eight minutes. Not much time for a full story huh? Yup. The stories all seem to follow one of two plot lines: 1: Supporting character mutters about Rito, has some time alone with him, comes to realise how he's really awesome. 2: Supporting character mutters about a flaw in their life; something like not understanding friendship or whathaveyou. Has an encounter. Realises the thing they were missing is important. Oh well. It really is a very shallow series. And not in the awesome fun way of the original series. Its kind of entertaining. Some funny moments. But don't go expecting this to be a proper series 2. I just hope if there's a 3rd series of To Love Ru made they do it properly.
