Fall for Pita-Ten

 

This light-hearted adaptation of the ecchi harem anime by the same name will leave you feeling elevated. While a show that boasts five genre tags (supernatural, comedy, fantasy, romance, and drama) may seem like a big bite to chew, it’s actually quite cute, fun, and surprisingly touching. The show is congruent and definitely worth a watch.

Follow middle schooler Kotarou as he goes about his daily life. He is a smart, polite boy who must rely on himself, as his mother is dead and his father works around the clock. He has a small group of friends and is content with his life.

Until that is, he meets the angel-in-training Misha. Though initially annoyed at the overly peppy angel, Kotarou grows to care for her very much.

Just when he thought life couldn’t get any stranger than an angel next door, Shia the demon becomes Misha’s roommate. With the two of them, his circle of friends grows, as does his happiness.

The deviations from the manga make the anime fun to watch, even if you’ve committed every printed page to memory. With fun characters, good writing, and some of the cutest character designs, Pita-Ten is a great anime for teens and adults alike. Definitely a good romance anime.
