Motto To Love Ru: Complete Collection (2010/Section 23/Sentai Blu-ray)

Picture: B+ Sound: B Extras: C- Main Program: A-

The love and laughter continues for Rito Yuki as various aliens and girls battle for Yuki's affections. Ever since Rito met Lala, a runaway princess from the planet Develuke, his life has been a non-stop adventure. Between Lala's crazy inventions, Rito's female classmates, alien suitors and assassins everyone seem to want Rito. In this season of Ti Love Ru entitled Motto To Love Ru: Complete Collection (2010), they are joined by Lala's younger twin sisters Nana and Momo who like their big sister also falls in love with Rito. Will Rito finally have the courage to confess who he really loves?

Rito Yuki was an ordinary boy until a certain runaway alien princess deems Rito of worthy of being her husband, now he constantly has to fend off the various affections of her and various girls from trying to sneaking into his bed. He is mainly conflicted between his feelings for Lala and Haruna, his childhood friend, but eventually he also develops other relationships with other girls almost a similar degree, including Lala's two sisters who also decide they want to live on Earth with Rito. Yami the Golden Darkness, a galactic bounty hunter who has targeted Rito but has switched from kill to love. Yui Kotegawa, Rito's uptight classroom representative who constantly berates Rito for getting into perverted situations but secretly desires Rito. Run, a gender switching alien idol, along with a few other minor girls.

This is your typical harem comedy anime with beautiful alien girls, tons of fan service and the main character getting into naughty situations with them (mainly accidental because of crazy inventions, usually ending them up naked). Like most harem, the main male protagonist has many girls to choose from, but in the end somehow manage to get the harem route/end, where all the girls decide to share him equally and marry him.

The 1080i 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfer has softness inherent to the way the animation was produced, but the image is not as bad as you would think for an increasingly rare interlaced release, so don't let that stop you from enjoying it, while the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo lossless mix is warm, has some Pro Logic-like surrounds and is as good as it will ever sound. Extras include clean opening and closing animation and trailers.
