well sense the second season is coming out in April i thought i would write up a review of the first season

Story:
Ok so we have a kid that is addicted to dating sim games and who calls himself the god of conquest. He is convinced that nothing about the real world is good and that all he needs are his game girls. As he his playing one of his games he gets a message from someone and takes it as a challenge to his title. After sending a reply he unknowingly signs a contract to collect loose souls by concurring real world girls. The story then follows 2-3 mini arcs that follow him concurring different types of girls at his school. The story is very funny especially when game logic fails for Keima in the real world.

Animation/Art:
This anime is not breaking new ground in the animation department.  There are times when the movement is a little awkward and the background is dull and lacking, but that being said, it is not all the time and when they do get it right it is beautiful. The art style in this is like that of a dating sim which fits perfectly with the anime itself. The colors are vibrant and the characters, while cliché, are distinct and clean.

OST

Sound:

Fifth ending

Eighth ending:

(good luck finding the 1st,3rd,4th,6th,and 7th endings)

Characters:
The two main characters are Keima Katsuragi and Elsea De Lute Irma. Keima is a high school kid who loves nothing more then playing his dating sims(and is somehow loaded, with as many “pfp”s and other game stations that he has, he must have like a million dollars stashed somewhere.) He can’t even be bothered to put the games down during class, which does not seem to be a problem as he can answer any questions asked. Elsea is a demon that was contracted to work with Keima to collect loose souls.

Overall:
This anime is great for having a laugh at the end of a long day. I almost died when Elsea was explaining to Keima’s mom why she was going to be living with them. The music is catchy, characters are interesting, and the conquests will pull you in as you try and figure out how he will snare someone’s heart. The parts where it blurred reality and the game world were great but there was one episode that I thought took away from the season. I still have no idea why it was added…

My personal rating for this would be an 8/10
