Isuca - First Impression

Isuca - First Impression

Director: Akira Iwanaga

Original Work: Osamu Takahashi

Studio: Arms

Asuna goes down a road on the way home. He's suddenly approached by a very lusty woman who wants to offer him "pleasure" in exchange for life force. (It's not as sexy as I'm making it sound.) Thankfully he's rescued by a mysterious girl who is skilled in Spirit Archery. Asuna later finds out that Sakuya, his rescuer from the previous night, goes to his same school. Due to Asuna's hidden power and Sakuya's duty to seal away monsters, their fates soon become intertwined.

This is an anime that was previously a manga. The storyline is slightly altered but the sequence of events still makes sense. Although one big difference in the anime is immediate exposure to super ecchi scenes. I'm sure there will be censored and uncut versions of this anime as the season progresses. This anime also involves a harem so... hopefully there will be a season 2. 

The manga does a better job of blending ecchi and action into the storyline. However, that does not mean that the anime is terrible. If you are a lover of Ikki Tousen and So I Can't Play H, then this anime will be right up your alley. 

Crunchyroll will be streaming the English sub so keep an eye out.
