To LOVE-Ru Watch Order Guide

To LOVE-Ru is a popular anime that became the staple of the ecchi genre in 2008. The anime combines comedic themes with romance, lots of fanservice, and regular high school drama. The humor in the show is not the best, but you’ll get a few chuckles from here and there. The anime also appeals to the harem genre where most of the female characters are obsessive over the main protagonist.

If you’re in the mood for an anime with different themes like harem, characterization, and a lot of ecchi scenes, To LOVE Ru is for you. However, only problems with this anime are that there are many fillers. As said, do not watch with high expectations. Watch for the sake of the comedy and fanservice.

This anime has four seasons and a bunch of OVAs. But the anime also strays off from the manga if you watch it in its release order. So If you are planning to watch To LOVE Ru, then watch it according to this order.

Rito later discovers that she has arrived on earth escaping from her home planet Deviluke to avoid marriage to any of her husband candidates. Lala then decides to pretend as Rito’s lover to avoid any more marriage proposals. From there on, things get even more out of control for Rito when Lala uses her alien inventions to help him.
