Nabatame is really good at conveying emotion in her voicing. At least half of the reason why I fall for Feena so badly is because of her. She has convinced me that she can shine with any character -- even as a trivial character with only 2-3 lines like in Megane na Kanojo, she shined. It's just amazing.

I'm drawn to this show mainly of the seiyuu stardom, and I'm not disappointed in that aspect. Yukarin's voice reminds me too much of her character in B Gata H Kei, though.

On subject, I REALLY miss the days where Horie Yui is the leading lady instead of being relegated to a supporting extra. Yeah, I have been spoilt by Love Hina (where she was Naru) and Kanon (Ayu), but a talented vocie is still a talented voice.

Not saying Effie isn't an asset to the show, mind. (Yes in that way too ) It's just that Horie-sempai deserves much better roles than this.
There is DOG DAYS this season alright , or even Hourou Musuko from last season, hocchan was close enough to a main character in it, especially in the last few episodes. Mentioning Hourou Musuko, I was also drawn to it by its seiyuu stardom, and I ended up with a very, very pleasant surprise. I hope this show will bring me the same.

Aside from that reasoning... He got it bad on him at the age of 12. He doesn't seem like the type of character as said before to go and mess around. So he must have lovestruck the girl badly enough for her to rape him.

Well there are only a few explanations. Either the girl dumped the kid on him, she died, or he was raped and left with the kid. Please feel free to pick whatever doesn't fit a "neo-conservative mentality." It's not the fact that he had a kid that young, but that there is no sign of a mother in the picture that brings the thinking down that road. Not to mention it doesn't seem to be in Naoya's personality.

It's good executed, drawn series.
But everytime i think that 23 old guy has 10 years old daughter. my blood starts boiling. I'm ok with succubus needing lifeseed. Besides chances that Lotte having sex with Naoya are next to zero. I'm completely not ok with 12 old boys impregnating women. Too much of shotacon hentai for me. Not working, there should be boundaries.

I agree with Kakkou Rina is miscasted as Naoya, she sounds like an older sister at best. Plus his antics reminds more of shy haremlead in school setting rather than a grown up man.

1. My own point of view is that fantasy is where we get a chance to cross our boundaries. This is not reality, it is fantasy, and if we do not recognize and enjoy our fantasies, they will sneak up behind us and control us unconsciously. Similar to Jung's concept of the "shadow."

2. "In folklore traced back to medieval legend, a succubus (plural succubi) is a female demon appearing in dreams who takes the form of a human woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual intercourse." (Wikipedia) Old explanation for nocturnal emissions.

3. Satou Rina is not miscast here. That idea comes from a preconceived notion of what kind of person a father should be. In this story, Naoya's feminine side is extremely important. That is part of his appeal in this fantasy story.

Episode 4: outstanding, yet again. Fantastic backgrounds, literally and figuratively. Good, and unexpected, development of the themes of the story (except for those of us who have read this far in the manga, and knew what was coming). And Kugyu is at her peak in this show, for me.
Spoiler for ep4, Lotte's father:

@KaoruC & Winkel: I also have the impression that succabi harems are just for nutrition, not procreation, otherwise there should be many more daughters, and I get the impression that by now all of them have been revealed.



EDIT: since I missed this post...

Let me see if I understood you correctly, you're OK with a 10 year old girl engaging in sexual activities with a 23 year old guy, but you're infuriated by a 12 year old boy impregnating an 18 year old girl

There are boundaries, it is called mature content for a reason, it's not intended to be viewed by immature audience who have serious problems with the distinction between reality and fantasy

Well, the queen is less guy crazy as compared to the manga. The story is going in more more heartfelt direction which I like.

The queen uses her sense of smell to locate Asuha, and Asuha also smells the queen, I wonder if that is genetic

Well that was surprising . At least the mystery of Asuha's mother is partially revealed. Yeah it would be tough for Asuha to see her mother on a regular basis since she was from another realm entirely . That's some visit she made to the human world. Though definitely some questions to be asked. Like why doesn't Asuha have a tail considering what they said about the offspring of succubi all being succubi?

Still have to agree the Queen has rotten luck. Lotte hearing the conversation that made her decide to leave early. Not to mention showing up at the party late even though she did her best to hurry her work along so she'd make it in time. Still at least she tried.

Next episode should be pretty entertaining.

Heh... Queen has a ponytail. I knew I was going to like her my sig being changed recently has nothing to do with that decision lol.

But the story is nice, I like how they're fitting it together despite the changes I was used to from the manga. This series has a nice family feel to it, and I can relate to it a bit too. When Rotte went her way to give he invitation, I admit I thought Naoya was going togo along. The part that saddened me (for real) was when Rotte was crying at the end, she thought her mother was busy so she didn't give the invite, I experienced that before when I was younger, and my mother was always away on business, so I rarely saw her as well. I was hoping Rotte would find out her mother did see the invite, and that she tried her best to get there, but I guess these 2 only grew apart more.

Nice way to end the ep though, I haven't experienced a interesting cliffhanger in awhile

Considering they've been apart for years, it's an amazing feat for these two

This is purely conjecture, and speculation on my part, but I want to throw a hail mary and say her father was a human. The lack of tail would explain how rare humans are to Yggvarworld, and how those 3 girls had a huge misconception about what a human looks like. I'm going to blindly drop a gravity bomb (again pure speculation) and say the dad really is Naoya. I'm basing this mainly on the flashback in ep 02, and the part where if it was known that the Queen made out with a human and had an offspring, it'd cause a commotion, and not to mention it would be revealed that the Christmas tree was functioning at the time, which if I recall this right there was something pretty big years ago, like a war or something, with the tree caught right in the middle of it. The Queen having access to a functioning Yggdrasil would probably be a political problem. And I don't think rape is involved here: remember even mouth action works.
