The mildly-dirty comedy series about an alien princess and the hapless human she loves (which lifted most of its plot from Urusei Yatsura) has had two previous series, both of which were released on subtitled-only DVDs by Sentai. This 12 episode series should follow the same pattern.
“TO LOVE RU ~ DARKNESS”
HOUSTON, October 04, 2012 — Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce their latest acquisition: To Love Ru Darkness. The latest follow up to the hit series To Love Ru is directed by Atsushi Ootsuki (Ladies Versus Butlers!) with character designs by Yuichi Ouka (Over Drive TV).
As close encounters of the twisted kind between the residents of the planet Develuke (represented primarily by the female members of the royal family) and the inhabitants of Earth (represented mainly by one very exhausted Rito Yuki) continue to escalate, the situation spirals even further out of control. When junior princesses Nana and Momo transferred into Earth School where big sister Lala can (theoretically) keep an eye on them, things SHOULD be smooth sailing. But when Momo decides she’d like to “supplement” Rito’s relationship with Lala with a little “sisterly love,” you know Lala’s not going to waste any time splitting harems. Unfortunately, it’s just about that point that Yami, the Golden Darkness, enters the scene with all the subtleness of a supernova, along with an army of possessed high school students! All of which is certain to make Rito’s life suck more than a black hole at the family picnic. Unless, of course, a certain semi-demonic princess can apply a little of her Develukean Whoop Ass to exactly that portion of certain other heavenly bodies! It’s “Wham, bam, thank you, Space Ma’am” time once again in TO LOVE RU ~ DARKNESS!
To Love Ru ~ Darkness will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow in 2013.
