I can honestly say, that To LOVE-Ru has GOT to be HANDS DOWN the most original anime ever. It’s a fairly new manga/anime, and it’s about an alien girl named Lala that comes to earth and suddenly becomes engaged (and falls in love almost immediately with no second thoughts) with a random kid named Rito because he accidentally grabs her knockers. But of course, Rito likes a different girl from his class, and suddenly he has to deal with this, along with the sudden introduction to a large assortment of aliens and weird creatures that seem to appear every episode. Defiantly totally original. I might as well rate this. I’ve seen the anime so far and I actually kind of like it. It’s honestly pretty funny…sometimes. Haven’t read the manga, but it looks like it might be funnier (I think the same thing about Rosario + Vampire, they’re pretty much the same show excluding differences in plot).
Wow what an original plot. Now for no particular reason I will talk about Urasei Yatsura. Another manga turned anime from the early 90’s or late 80’s or suttin. I’m reading it now because apparently it was really popular, therefore it must be good. What’s it about again? Oh now I remember! An alien girl named Lum lands on earth and by accident, suddenly becomes engaged (and falls in love almost immediately w ith no second thoughts) with a kid named Ataru, but hold on, he likes another girl! And now he has to deal with this and the introduction of a large assortment of aliens and weird creatures that seem to appear every episode (or chapter). I’m reading this, and it’s ok. Personally, it needs to hurry up and end, but I’m only a third done, which is something like chapter 125 or so. Tedious.
For those of you who are total morons, I was trying to insinuate through the use of obviousness and sarcasm that To LOVE-Ru is not original at all. And in fact has the exact same plot as Urasei Yatsura. (it’s hard to believe, but there are some people that wouldn’t get that). For the record, the characters do have different personalities. Example: (To LOVE-Ru = Pink Urasei Yatsura = Green)
Rito = A nice guy, but always in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Ataru = Will try to fuck anything with tits the moment he sees them.
Lala = Acts like a blonde girl.
Lum = Electrocutes Ataru regularly (she’s a bitch)
Other Girl = Shy.
Other Girl = I forget.
Still, To LOVE-Ru totally ripped UY off. But I think it’s still the better of the two.
