This show is despicable and disgusting. I'm likely to come back to it eventually for top rotation pictures, but I'm not even slightly interested in watching any more of it.
I think this guy ranks even worse than the one in High School DxD on the lechery scale. And it's a plot point. Lisara is a shinigami, a god of death, but when such come to Earth their energy falls. In need of power, she creates a temporary bond between her and Our Hero (Ryousuke).
Well, he hasn't got a lot of power for her to drain. But... when he gets massively horny, suddenly his energy level hits the ceiling and she gets a major recharge of combat power.
She has to fight a major battle, and runs out of power. Her clothes have been shredded, and Our Hero jumps in and starts fondling her breasts, which yields a huge charge of power, permitting her to free herself from the tentacles and to beat the attacker.
It's just as stupid and contrived as it sounds, and I feel soiled for having watched it.
Crunchyroll is running this but it hasn't appeared there yet. The version I saw was ATX, and it has bare breasts and nipples (Lisara's). I'll be curious to see if Crunchyroll has the uncensored version.
I bet not.

It's even worse than that. He has this habit of mumbling his thoughts. So he goes to school with his next door neighbor, who happens to have really big tits, and he's musing about how she's soon going to be an F-cup, and wondering when she started growing like that. She apparently is used to this and isn't bothered by it, and answers him.
And at the school he sees three girls who were caught in the rain in their gym clothes, rendering their shirts transparent, and mumbles about this, too, and they hear him. And get pissed.
He apparently has a reputation as being a world class perv, as a result of this.
That whole sequence made me ill; I did a lot of skipping.

Still, yeah, this series isn't too promising.
You might keep Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imout ga Iru! in mind for future top rotation material. The series actually seems like it'll be a cynical take on the harem genre, which I'm kind of up for at the moment, haha. Not sure if it'll be good, but the fact they're already hinting that our group of haremettes will be, for all intents and purposes, gold diggers is so very different from normal.
That and I watched it right after Dakara, so I was surprised by the step up in storytelling quality. (Doesn't mean the story won't fail horribly later, but of the first episodes so far, it was pretty tolerable for me. But I also have a pretty high tolerance for fanservice shows, as long as I get an interesting story.)

It wasn't very good as a manga, but they significantly made it worse. At least in the manga, they made him look like less of a jackass.
