Inukami!

Inukami!

Inukami wins, seriously. Don’t listen to all those shortsighted people who claim that it’s nakkid men anime, there’s more to it than that,really. A story of love, friendship, blood, sweat and tears awaits as well. Oh, don’t forget the elephants too!

That being said, Inukami! is such a refreshingly entertaining comedy anime, I’m regretting dismissing it when it was being aired. The jokes are unrestrainedly over-the-top and I really bust a gut or two laughing like hell while watching Inukami!, mostly at the expense of poor Keita. Probably what I like about Inukami is that their jokes are not just restricted to the females, but the males get their fair share of the short end of the stick as well. Many a times, I was really going to laugh and barf at the same time with some of the antics they pull off. Best was probably episode 18′s infamous ending, which really needs to be watched to be believed. Ironic since my interest in Inukami! peaked when I took a liking towards Yuujou Monogatari, the series’ ED.

Keita is also probably one of the best male characters I’ve seen in a while, mostly due to his antics, and well, luck with girls as well. It’s really god damned funny to see him go all out trying to attract the girls but in the end, he attracts more perverts than females XD. I do share his concerns about bringing forward his relationship with Youko though, the prospects are kinda mortifying LOLOLOLOL. Still, the poor chap is just plain likable and I really wouldn’t mind having a friend like him around, it’d be fun everyday just enjoying at his antics.

Seriously, don’t look down on Inukami!. It’s a show that needs to be watched before judging it. It’s probably one of the better ecchi comedy anime in recent times, and I’m even ranking it just behind the legendary FMP?:Fumoffu in terms of eliciting all-out gut-busting laughter. Be a bit more open-minded and give it a try, now that Mendoi-KAA-SHS have completed releasing the subbed DVDrips.

    Yeah it IS very funny, but that’s not the best bit about Inukami imo. It’s the serious moments, when they decide to do it, that stands out for me. Episode 13 and 14 are especially good, probably largely due to the contrast between the flat out despair and the usual comedy that we’re used to.

    So Hinano and I were the only ones praising this to the sky when it was first released and everyone scoffed at us for liking naked men. Anyway, at least now you get to see it in pure DVD splendour.

    Personally I always loved the narration during the previews. Some real cracking lines in there, particularly towards the end of the series. Very nice show overall I thought. In a way some of the busou renkin humour reminded me of inukami, perhaps why I enjoyed that show a fair bit as well.

    What’s there to understand, it’s just another moe archetype, just like nekomimi meido’s and tsundere seitokaicho’s :P. Still, kemonomimi archetype is one that hasn’t been much explored lately… maybe they will animate “Wa ga uchi no O-inari-sama”… saw a few examples of it’s art and I’m quite interested in it.

    When I watched the first episode of Inukami I knew that it would be a great show. Comedy(Keita being nude), fanservice(Yokos behaviour), some comedy filled story(guy turns guys nude by ahem…) and more.

    This combined with the great design and animation and we have a winner.
