Very illogical.
30 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Basically my problem with this show is the lack of respect towards human life and the warped sense of romance presented here. If you've seen love Hina this is very similar in that the protagonist of the story is kicked around a lot. In Love Hina it was somewhat funny, but in this it was just down right demeaning.

This guy who is brought to this magical world against his will is now treated as basically a slave, although he's referred to as a familiar, basically a pet that is supposed to serve their master. Except he's the only familiar who is a human, all the other one's are some kind of animal and yet even they get treated better. Some how this young man from modern day Japan is all accepting of this situation. Why? Why wouldn't he just explain to this girl the situation? Never once in the show is it properly explained, a little here and there, but he never actually makes an effort and yet after her treating him like crap he still likes her, come on now why not the maid? At least she was nice. Maybe girls will like this show, but guys you will not.

Overall the story and especially the romance amongst the characters in this show failed to add any realism even for the world in which they lived.
