ACF 1315: MOTTO TO LOVE RU


Sentai Filmworks has acquired MOTTO TO LOVE RU, the sequel series to the company’s previous hit TO LOVE RU. As before, the series is based on the manga by Kintaro Yabuki (BLACK CAT) and Saki Hasemi (MOETAN). The new 12 episode series is helmed by Atsushi Otsuki (who directed the final episode of the original series as well as episodes of FULL METAL ALCHEMIST, the second season of WAGNERIA and LADIES VS. BUTLERS) working from series composition by SLAYERS and VENUS VS. VIRUS vet Yasutomo Yamada. Yuichi Ouka once again adapts Yabuki’s original character designs for animation.

Watch for MOTTO TO LOVE RU on subtitled DVD this spring!

Synopsis: The insanity that began when a very naked (and very female) alien teleported into Rito Yuki’s bathtub (while he was in it) continues, and even though Princess Lala has finally started to admit her true feelings about the young man she’s inexplicably engaged to marry (as a result of what happened in said bathtub and Develuke customs), her sometimes erratic technology and the snags and snarls of intergalatic politics and intrigue are still causing major problems.

That transporter, for example, still has the nasty habit of leaving the clothes behind.  Those alien bounty hunters?  Yep, even more of them and they’re even more devious.  Add body switches, alien skunks, a bathroom that changes size and shape, the inevitable sleepover that you just know is going to go horribly, horribly wrong (spoiler: it does,) and worst of all, Valentine’s Day, and even in space you’ll be able to hear Rito scream!  Love takes a quantum shift into the wrong gear and the star brakes are broken in the extra-special, extra-crazy extraterrestrial romance to end them all, MOTTO TO LOVE RU – The Complete Collection.
