OP: 「ヒカリ」 (Hikari) by 堀江由衣 (Horie Yui)
Kawahira Keita, who purpose is to crush evil and spread the truth, fights and defeats a spirit with the help of his inukami Youko. Sometime later, Youko wants to go cherry blossom viewing, but Keita blows off her proposal for a date to go out and look at girls. She catches him and punishes him by magically taking off his clothes in public. That gets him arrested by the police and put in jail. Youko visits him in his cell and reminds him that when they made their contract he had promised to be hers and listen to everything she said. The two are then approached by a special investigator who offers them work. It seems that there’s an evil spirit on the loose who has a grudge against couples and has the power to make clothes disappear. Keita and Youko pretend to be a couple and indeed the spirit shows up…and flashes them. They chase him outside where he initiates his special attack. Keita is eagerly anticipating seeing all the naked girls, but much to his dismay, the spirit’s power undresses only the guys. He’s apparently on a crusade to exterminate all couples, but Keita tells him that he’s made three mistakes. First, there is no woman who doesn’t want to see the man they like naked. Second, if there is nakedness, it should be definitely done to the girls. And third, everyone is not scared of nudity; Keita proves his point by taking off his own clothes. While the spirit is distracted, Youko uses her powers and gets rid of him. In the end though, the naked Keita finds himself back in jail.
ED: 「友情物語」 (Yuujou Monogatari) by Aice^5 (Kanda Akemi, Asano Masumi, Kimura Madoka, Takahashi Chiaki, and Horie Yui)
The OP is a bit too techno-y for my tastes. The ending is cute to look at it, but I’m not big on seiyuu group songs.
Say hellloooo to Mr. Elephant…
Um, wow, that was pretty unexpected. Here I was thinking this was a normal harem series, but this is more like Magikano with a crapton more sex and nudity jokes, though they are all pretty funny. Keita and Youko are contracted together, but it’s unclear who is the master in the relationship (probably Youko given the way things turn out). She seems infatuated with him, but he has no interest in going out with her, which proves to be his undoing. Anyway, it’s fun to see Horie Yui (voice of Youko) play this kind of role. Animation is also better than I thought it’d be.
Since this turned out so much better than I thought it’d be, I’ll probably be watching more of it. At least the next episode anyway…
