The XEBEC Love Hina anime was pretty crappy compared to the manga but it was no utter disaster like Negima! was.

I don't think Shugo Chara is a good comparison... maybe it's more like Nagaserete Airantou. Each episode will be refreshing, I certainly find the characters very interesting and the fanservice is over the top.

I'm expecting episodes of comedy and fanservice, with the very occasional drama. That's what the manga is like...

-_-

Guess I can expect the series to be a bit brainless... The question is how to end the series, since the manga has not ended. Probably one of those "doesn't choose, and leaves it open" ends.

This series's Eve isn't Eve though (personality isn't the same, no Sven interaction), so I can't be really excited about that.

She's not Eve but has exact same character design, consider Eve in a parallel universe.

What all fanboys wanted in Black Cat that never happen will happen in To-Love-Ru, let's put it that way.

TLR is going to animated is great news. Looks like there will be lots of skipping around in regards to plot line. That and I have a strong feeling I know where the stopping point would be also. *hint* it involves a machine made by LA LA.

There's nothing wrong with skipping in Torabu anyway, considering how loose the continuity is.

Anyway, the animation team seems to have gotten Rito's expressions right. Now so long as the seiyuu doesn't make Rito sound annoying, it'll be a good threshold as a good borderline to ensure that Rito comes across as being bubblishly cute rather than annoying.

That's a razor's edge considering Rito's character so far in the manga. He isn't really an outstanding lead at all, even considering this is one of those fun, but ultimately pointless harems. If the seiyuu and script writers manage to pull Rito above "lucky pre-pubescent boy", I'll be happy with that. Considering the manga doesn't really go above that much, I'm not hopeful the anime will.

I think we'll love this show for Lala-chan and Yami-chan/Eve Clone even if Rito is horribly annoying though.

Don't forget Yui, I'd rank her higher than Eve even.

Looking forward to the anime hope Xebec doesn't screw this up like they did with the anime version of Love Hina. Also wonder how they gonna do the anime version since most of the chapters in To-Love-Ru are standalone chapters. So will they either strech out the story in the anime by adding filler to fill for the entire episode or do two chapters in one episode. Like how they do in Kero-Gunso the first half being about one story and the other half about some other standalone story.

Yui? Does she start to play a bigger role in later chapters? So far (in the scanlated chapters, I haven't started raws yet), she has only a few appearances...

Seeing as how Love Hina was pretty much the same story as far as progression for much of the series, I would say anything is fine as long as they don't repeat past mistakes.

The 2 part episodes sounds nice though. I haven't really seen Keroro Gunsou, but KyoAni used the same approach with Fumoffu! and that turned out beautifully.

Well as long it doesn't have the same director or scenario writer from Love Hina anime working on this series there's hope it won't suck. Also wonder how there gonna handle the fanservice/nudity maybe use the fog effect like how it was done for 1st season of Girls Bravo while the DVD version will be uncut. That's the other thing I'm worried about because the Love Hina anime was rather tame compared to the manga version.

I'm definitely guessing fog effect for Lala's intro scene, it just makes sense, but they're sure to tone down the fanservice considerably. I wouldn't worry too much, they can't forget this is a bishoujo series (if they do, fanservice content is the least of our worries). Code Geass showed some pretty risque shots, so maybe censorship won't be as bad? This is probably going on to a late night slot anyway, so they might as well...

You have to keep in mind that Love Hina manga is on the extremes of fanservice. It's almost soft-core porn at some parts, probably would be considered that if it wasn't drawn. To Love-Ru can't even compare to Love Hina manga wise in that respect.

Aside from XEBEC's history, everything looks good so far, the character designs are faithful (more so than Love Hina) and well-done. Lala sounds okay on NicoNico Douga too. Besides, it's a harem/comedy, I'd think that it's relatively hard to screw up especially with such good source material.

I know this is odd to say I rather prefer they censor it add the fog effect for the nudity and fanservice so that the DVD version will be uncut without the fog effect, because if they don't do it that way well end up getting a tame ass anime version of To-LOVE-Ru like Love Hina/Negima (both done by Xebec ) was. Basicly go crazy like Girls Bravos the censorship did suck but hey at least we got to see it uncut in the DVD's.

Because Love Hina/Negima anime version were tame it suffered big time on the comedy since the fanservice plays a big role for the comedy effect.

BTW The reason I said nudity as well is because the tankobons has the nipples drawn the ones release on the magazine don't have them.

Scroll down a little to see some Lala nipple action:

27 minute vid of the actors introducing the series and doing some voiceovers for the CD:

Most of the cast sounds pretty good in their roles. Yui probably has the best voiceover, then again I am biased towards her

I did a little research into what animes I can look forward to next year and there are some ones I really looking forward to seeing but To Love Ru tops the list by a mile.

why I'm looking forward to this

great fanservice: check(I'm a glutton for fan service)

awesome cast beauty cuteys: check

There is more to this list but its got me sold at the first 2

I just love this series and thank god I decided to check it out, possibly my fav harem yet.

I've now read the manga up to chapter 15, enjoyable enough for the type of manga it is, hopefully XEBEC do a decent job of it.
