* OK, this one just bugged me for an awful lot now, so I'm just gonna ask : How in the holy mother of [[PrecisionFStrike FUCK]] did the Devilukeans evolve to get erogenous tails and WHY ?! What practical purpose does it give to the species ?

* In the anime episode 8 "The Prefect of Spotless Integrity" Kotegawa Yui is Obviously abusing her authority as she enforces new school rules on the student body yet they donít get outraged or call her out on it and Not only that but singles out Rito as the prime ďoffenderĒ for all things Eechi when itís clear it was all LALA fault, like itís always the guys fault and never the girls in her mind or something, Whatís the deal with that?

*** Well, It's not that bad. The only ones who irrationally blame him are Yui and Nana, both {{Tsundere}}s. Lala and most of the other girls acknowledge that its an accident most of the time. Hell, even Yui and Nana acknowledge that they are usually accidents. Yui's CharacterDevelopment is partially about her moving away from this mind set. Haruna also responds violently, but that's usually only when Rito face plants into her crotch. And the authority abuse? The ultimate authority in that school is the principal. And IIRC the rules weren't new, she was just rigidly enforcing rules that students usually get away with. For example, magazines really aren't allowed, but as long as they aren't being read in class teachers are likely to let it go. Plus, the student ''were'' getting pissed, but seeing as those rules were only in place for a day... Its exactly for this reason that Rito warned her she was going too far.
*** When you think about it, Yui wasn't completely wrong about Rito. He was, at the very least, the unwilling catalyst of the problems that finally set her off that day. He's the primary focus and without him Lala and Ren/Run leave while Saki goes back to being the most popular girl in school (keep in mind that it was her escalating competitiveness that lead to her and her henchwomen showing up in those outfits) . Is he totally at fault? No. Is he a significant part of recent excesses? Heck, yes. Does he WANT to be a part of those issues? That would be a big 'No'.
* How exactly did a planet with two suns induce aliens to evolve into dual-gendered beings? Hell, [[DragonBall Namek]] had ''three'' suns, and its inhabitants were ''genderless!''

* So I'm unclear on this: Does Lala actually have wings as well as a tail, or is that just Peke(sp) making them for her? I've never been able to tell.

* So I was looking at the {{Expy}} section on the main page, and it's dawned on me that Lala could be seen as a very big Expy of one [[UruseiYatsura Lum Invader]]. Think about it:

1) Is an alien princess from another planet.

2) Has incredible powers (SuperStrength and [[FrickingLaserBeams tail lasers]] for Lala, {{Flight}} and [[ShockAndAwe electricity generation]] for Lum).

3) Both apparently possess numerous devices from their home planets (though Lala makes hers herself).

4) Both are bases on a type of mythical beast in appearance (Lala on devils, and Lum on Oni).

5) Their races are apparently conquerors.

6) Both insert themselves into the lives of the guy they get involved with, who are considered perverts (though Ataru is one on purpose, and Rito is a AccidentalPervert).

And those are just a few surface points. I've also read that Lum's horns act as a weakness, just like Lala's tail, though I'm not sure if that is the truth. What do you guys think?
** Makes sense to me. And yes, grabbing Lum's horns severely weakens her, but it doesn't have the other effects that grabbing Lala's tail has. Also, you can't forget that both series are very fanservice heavy.

** I've got a compound answer that's similar to the above: Sexual selection plus cultural preferences of female desirability. Devilukean males must find erogenous tails to be a sexually desirable trait in their women, and so mated with those who had it. Put yourself in their shoes: Assume you're a heterosexual male Devilukean who's reached sexual maturity, and you see a sexually attractive female of your species. Something ensnares her tail and she gets all flustered; she starts blushing and (inadvertently) making those sorts of noises. You think it's cute, so you mate with her to ensure that trait of hers gets passed down to future generations. I know this doesn't entirely cover what sexual selection is as it's competition for mates, and if that's the case then Devilukean women who competed with each other for mates must've had to be as susceptible as possible in order to mate and ensure they passed on their genes. That's the best explanation I can come up with, anyway.



* How the hell is Nemesis visible? She's composed of dark matter, yes? Dark matter neither emits nor interacts with electromagnetic radiation which includes visible light, so unless the majority of Nemesis is actually regular baryonic matter (or more likely, I'm actually wrong about her being a dark matter being, she shouldn't even be visible to the naked eye. Aside from the logic of if she's not visible, then there's no fanservice, of course.

*** The previous troper doesn't understand what evolution is. Evolution does have a clear purpose - avoid changes that significantly reduce the chances of surviving to reproduce. That's why it's really rare to see genetic diseases that kill before sexual maturity - because evolution "purposefully" avoids it. Evolution punishes such mutations. The question of why Devilukeans have such erogenous tails is a good question since it could be a weakness that could get one killed. There are a couple possible answers: apparently the three sisters are unusually more susceptible than other Devilukeans (possibly because they're hybrids). Or being erogenous zones could be some weird byproduct of the fact that their tails are also powerful weapons.

*** The above commenter doesn't understand evolution at all. Evolution is purpose driven. Its purpose is to avoid significantly decreasing the chances of reproduction. That's why you don't see gene for infertility being passed down - because it literally can't be. That's why the question of why Devilukeans have a erogenous tails is a valid question - it presents a weakness and potentially significantly decreases their chances of surviving to reproduce.

** We now know that his "accidental pervert" nature is part and parcel of an ''incurable'' alien disease that manifested shortly after Rito came in contact with Lala. Yami in "Darkness" mode can warp reality with her nano-machines. Where do you think Eden got the idea and materials to design her with that ability?

** Evolution isn't purpose driven. Its more accurate to think of evolution as something that improves your odds of surviving and reproducing. So its entirely likely that Devilukeans didn't all of a sudden have erogenous tails, but it began as something that was perceived as attractive or desirable and individuals born with it had a higher likelihood of mating and passing on this trait.

** Evolution isn't purpose driven. Its more accurate to think of evolution as something that improves your odds of surviving actually highly random and reproducing. So its entirely likely that Devilukeans didn't all is usually the result of genetic diversity in a sudden have species. Traits like having an erogenous tails, but it began as something that was perceived as attractive tail, begins with usually one or desirable and a few individuals in a species. If this trait makes them more equipped for survival and reproduction and even if it doesn't as long as those born with it had reproduce the trait will eventually spread through the population. Evolution doesn't need a higher likelihood of mating and passing on this trait.purpose it just happens.
