Damn, not another Loli.

Meh. The upped fanservice is a little annoying. And Momo just isn't that engaging. She wasn't designed to be a main character.

I'm probably going to drop this in a chapter or two.

The first episode of the anime's been up for a while now...
In honor of my 50lb pup
Who is going to be the first to watch it? I admit I'm a little scared to try it...

I was bored. I watched it. It was bad. If the scenes had taken advantage of the medium to play to its strengths, it could have at least appealed to those who enjoyed the manga*. They didn't. It wouldn't.

I liked Motto, but the thing with Darkness is its charm comes from pushing the boundaries of audacity as much as it can (granted, at times it goes overboard and becomes just disgusting, like the Mikan's Panties Saga). That's hard to do when your censorship blocks most of the screen. I'll wait for the uncensored version.

But dammit, seriously, tone the Lolis down. The dynamics with Rito work better when he deals with girls around his age, who he can see classes with and interact in a more even and direct way.

The newest chapter had, as always, gratuitous Fanservice, which is kinda eh, but also had a plot hook, which is good.

At least Nemesis aged herself up for the real fanservicey moments.

This. I love how Yabuki has basically become the Tim Taylor of fanservice.

You just have to laugh when such blatant sensoring takes up most of the screen. At least, I do.

[up]It's funny at first, but it becomes an one trick pony after a while, and even the variations that actually try to be funny have been overplayed by now, from the donkey in GUN×SWORD to Maedax in Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei.

No, the other one.
Was a while since I read the manga. Best thing from the last chapter: Zastin and Saki appeared in one frame. I've missed that guy. In regular style, fanservice pushes as much as it can. I mean, what exactly does a tail look like? Not too fond of the new one, and the darkness of Darkness is starting to feel a little slow. And cliché.

The anime was about as mediocre as the rest of it, with the downside of being an introduction episode. The censoring can be done without blotting out half the screen or more, though. Then again, the fanservice works more according to the spray-and-pray method than actually trying to be good, so don't think there's much to miss anyway. I'm not judging it out just yet, but we'll see. I do want to see something I haven't seen in the manga, but that would be hoping for a little much, I think.
Check out my fanfiction!
I'm wondering why they put that bit in about how Momo got the idea for the harem. It was already in the OVA. I guess for any new viewers but it still seems redundant to me.

Because the OVA isn't exactly widely available?

It was only shipped with the limited edition of one of the manga volumes (which, if you haven't ever bought one, stops getting printed on release day), so it's generally poor form to assume anyone has seen it. Which is exactly why introducing Lala's sisters in OVA form was just a bad idea.

Not to mention that the plan is repeated in chapter 0 (the OVA), chapter 1 (the first episode) and chapter 2 (the second episode), so they're just being accurate.

New episode. Seems they're going for 1.5 chapters per episode.

Quick question. From what I have been able to find Darkness apparently focuses mostly on new characters. So would I be able to watch/read it without having seen/read the first series?

It's better to at least know the basics of the original series, as there are characters and plot points in Darkness who/which are present and to some degree important, yet get no introduction of any sort. If you know every character though and are just plain not interested in how the original series is generally quite samey week-by-week, then feel free to skip ahead to Darkness.

Also, to correct you, they only have 3 new characters that aren't basically generics, and they're 2 villains and a side-character. The entire rest of the cast is copied over from the previous series (and, as Sabbo says, you get no introduction and are expected to know everything already), which makes sense because this is a follow-up to the first series' Real Life Writes the Plot No Ending that started from the next day in-universe.

So then I should start with the original I take it? How long is that in terms of chapters?

So it's a non-Loli chapter?

THANK YOU GOD.

My God, they keep getting creepier. At this point, we'll soon have vore, whatever they use to refer to old-people-loving, and parental... stuff.

Come to think about it, Oshizu already kinda covers necrophilia.
