At first, after read Scamp’s review, I wasn’t going to watch it. Then reading Rabbitpoet’s review of the first episode, my mind was changed to that I should at least give it a try. Afterwards, I’d form an opinion of my own. In the end, I really enjoyed this first episode.
The premise is pretty simple. A good-natured guy who wants nothing more then to benefit the world around has it announced that he’s going to be a demon lord. To the whole school. Many misunderstandings occur.
I found the whole thing really entertaining. While it looks to be nothing ground-breaking, and could take a path for the worse, it looks like it has a lot of potential to be a really fun series.
Honestly, the animation wasn’t half bad. I really liked the character designs, I personally found them appealing. It feels like that a lot of work went into this episodes which stands out compared to other shows-cough Giant Killing B Gata H Kei Kaichou wa Maid Sama- haven’t had the best production values. Not that this has the best either, but it does feel as if effort went into it.
And yes, there are panty shots. Quite a few. However, it’s seems I’m completely apathetic to butts. Really. It might as well just be a hand or a leg or whatnot, they don’t inspire a reaction out of me. They don’t turn me on, they don’t turn me off, they’re just there. So the butts are no problem for me. I do like boobs as long as they don’t go overboard, and there weren’t that many boobs scenes. One very nice one though.
I’ll be sticking with this for now. If it turns into crap, I’ll drop it, but I hope it won’t.
