Turns out I didn't review this. What I did review was another anime called Girls Bravo. Both of them came out around the same time. Oddly enough the core material and the anime came out at the same times for both(so they didn't rip each other off). Why compare them ? Because they're about the same damn show. Both contain a unlikely hero that lives alone, an alien girl that wants to bone the said hero and eats like a stoner with the munchies, other characters that want to get with the hero and content that borderlines porn at times(although dearS didn't have full on nudity like the latter). The worst part is both probably ripped-off some other show, but lets get to the review.
The story starts about a year after a mysterious race of aliens in bondage gear crash land near Japan. Due to their helpful nature the people of Japan give them the name dearS(Alright if aliens ever land on Earth we're not letting the Japanese name them, because thats just f**king stupid). Than a truck caring a defective dearS for almost no reason crashes and the dearS escape. She than finds our alien hating hero and the story begins. Their is a main plot but it takes a back set, while situational comedy leads.
The series doesn't have to many main characters, but does have a lot of secondary characters. Allowing the viewer to become closer to the main characters. These include, Takeya the protagonist who becomes the unwilling master of Ren. I will give the show props for not making him a wussy like many others have done. Ren the defective dearS and self professed slave of Takeya who(while kinda stupid) is probably the most likable character. Their nerd friend Neneko and the pink-haired dearS Miu. The side characters are some of the most annoying creations I've ever seen and the ones that arn't annoying are just unlikable. These include an over horny teacher, the dominatrix like leader of the dearS and a lot of other unwanteds. In the end you'll find yourself liking the four main people because almost everyone else makes you want to shoot yourself.
I did enjoy the humor. Scenes involving the two main dearS watching porn and not knowing what it was and a lot of the perverted teacher's actions made me laugh along with some other moments. This was the series's high point. It also contained some mellow drama that seemed out of place but added to the overall plot.
The series ends on a good note and most will be satisfied with it. The animation and sound was good. The dubbing was good and had quiet a few people from Girls Bravo in it. I didn't have a problem with this but I did have a problem how none of the voices really changed between roles. The unoriginality wasn't entirely the show's fault but the annoying side characters where. In the end I did enjoy the show and was entertained with it for the most part. Anime fans should love this, though it may be hit and miss for outsiders.
