Summary: Keita is a boy who would rather play virtual novels on his PFP than actually pay attention in class. One day, he meets a demon named Elsie who sets up a contract with him. Now he must help her retrieve “loose souls” that have possessed people, causing them to act contrary to their true natures.
Review: This was recommended to me by a friend I had met online. I have to say it was slightly above average. The animation was nice, and I laughed at most of the jokes, especially how nerdy Keima was.
However, I had two problems. First, Elsie was pretty annoying. She was a ditz and her ADHD was unamusing at best. I also didn’t like how the final episode ended. There was no sense of closure; the story just–well–stopped. I still thought it wasn’t necessarily bad, I just didn’t enjoy it enough to give it anything above 7.
Dub/Sub: I only watched the sub.
Music/Score: The music was good. I liked both opening themes a lot, but the ending themes were only okay.
Violence: (3/10) Most of the violence is slapstick.
Language: (2/10) Mild at best.
Nudity: (1/10) In one episode, in order to keep up the facade that they are siblings, Elsie tries to take a bath with Keiba.
Sexuality: When Keita’s mother falls for Elsie’s ploy that they are siblings, she thinks her husband has cheated on her and immediately divorces him. There are also a few mild sex jokes.
Religion: (2/10) Elsie seems more like a trickster than an evil demon.
Related Media: There is a manga and a light novel.
