Our hero gains magic powers by virtue of being a huge pervert. No, seriously.
It’s hard to say which was worse, this or Hagure Yuusha no Estetica. Hagure Yuusha no Estetica was hands down more plain disgusting, but this managed to be way more boring. Yeah, I skimmed through the last four episodes or so. Couldn’t stand it.
The reason is that this show falls into the common trap of sleazy fanservice shows of attempting to have some “plot” and “feelings” and crap, which inevitably backfires. The “feelings” part will obviously fail, since it inevitably amounts to girls crying over why MC-kun won’t sleep with them. The plot… amounts to much the same thing.
This isn’t to imply that Dakara would have succeeded without the last minute attempt to include some sort of plot, however. A fanservice show needs good characters, and Dakara doesn’t have them. The lead male’s sole outstanding characteristic is his ability to memorize porn magazines. The lead females are a tsundere, childhood friend, imouto-type, and one with big breasts. Nothing interesting here.
Also, the color scheme for this show is hideous. I can barely stand to look at it. When the screen isn’t show dark you can’t see anything, the dominant colors are a combination of puke green and bright orange.
