Rin is a seemingly normal young man in school. Orphaned as a young boy he has since lived with his childhood friend Kaede who lost her mother in the same accident that he lost both of his parents. Everything changes one day when a devil princess moves into the house next to them and a princess of the gods moves in on the other side. Each are there to win his affections and become his bride. What follows both is mostly a fun filled harem anime that may surprise you with its unexpected drama and depth. Written by
As this series can currently be watched legally on line on Funimation's YouTube channel I thought I'd give it a go and I'm glad that I did as it was pretty good. Before it started I knew little about it but the characters are introduced well and are all fairly distinctive.
Rin Tsuchimi is a high school student who's life gets very complicated when the kings of the World of Devils and the World of Gods turn up in his class and tell him that he is to pick which of their daughters, Nerine and Lisianthus, he wishes to marry and later become king of that realm himself. This being a harem anime these aren't the only two girls interested in him. Kaede in who's house he lives is besotted by him and he is also close to Asa a girl in a class above him. For most of the series he can't decide which of the girls he wishes to date. As it becomes apparent which of the girls he likes to tome of the series takes a drastic mood swing as one of the other girls has a dramatic breakdown, even when that has past things don't get too much better for the group as the girl he loves becomes sick but refuses to do the one thing which could save her, this leads to Rin taking drastic action. I've avoided naming names here to avoid spoiling the end.
This was a fun series and I was genuinely interested to see who Rin would pick. As well as the central story there is plenty of comedy early on, three of the girls have large fan clubs who don't like their attentions being directed at Rin so he must evade them, as the story progresses these groups disappear though. There is a reasonable amount of fanservice although it doesn't go too far too often, there are occasional shots of the girls' undies or bare chests which some viewers might not be too keen on.
These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
