After Gundam NT going back to doing a show that's a bit easier for people to watch...


Interviews With Monster Girls

Image Thumbnail (custom)

Some fanservice in this one.


The series can be watched on the following officially:
Subbed on Crunchyroll
Dubbed on Funimation

The show is just 12 episodes plus a single OVA episode, so the whole thing works.

Takahashi wants to study the phenomena of demi-humans, who used to just appear in stories, but have been more and more accepted into normal society. While once thought to just be stories, they are still exceedingly rare, and it's not very likely to happen in his job as a biology teacher. And then he meets a vampire, a dullahan, a snow woman, and a succubus.


Monster Girls is a fun comedy drama that does more than a few interesting things with the various characters in the show, and it's an enjoyable watch that even does throw in some actual issues for the various characters, generally using their status as demi-humans as a stand in for being different.




As for Digimon connections... there aren't many notable ones, but here are a few:

Haruo Satou is the Vice-Principal in Monster Girls. In Tamers he was Juri's father, plus he had a few other bit roles in the series.

Natsuki Hanae plays Takahashi's old friend Souma. In Digimon he was of course Taichi in tri. and is playing him again in Kizuna.



I've embedded the first episode as a preview:



Feel free to post as you wish in this thread. You can post as you are watching, episode by episode, when you finish. Whatever you want. Try and give it a couple days for later spoilers so people have time to try and view stuff without spoilers, while still interacting in the thread (especially if you decide to keep watching past the episode listed as the last one for the leadup.) If you watch one episode and it isn't for you, pop in to explain why. Have fun with it!

A new show/movie will go up each Sunday night (or early on Monday), but feel free to keep talking about older shows in their threads, or even watching past the listed episode.


If you want to chat in the Discord you can.

Hopefully you enjoy. Feel free to make any suggestions or ask an questions regarding the threads or the shows also.

Ha ha ha! Yes. I have seen this. It's great. Cute, cute stuff. The girls are so nice and cute. Really. Look at the female teacher. That poor woman. ...Also, best girls are the Snow girl/Dullahan.

I liked this show. It was cute, and there were a number of laugh-aloud moments. I guess it's a harem series, though the male protagonist is rather atypical (in a good way) and (fortunately for our sensibilities) only attracted to one of the female characters. It was kind of fun to see how various mythological beings were domesticated for the purposes of the premise. I was wondering whether the show would, like other harem series, add to the cast as time went on, and of course we do have a fourth demi show up in the extra episode. Would be nice if the show gets another season. Not that there's a bunch of plot threads to follow up on. I did wonder a little what the deal was with Kurtz. If Ugaki wasn't pulling Sakie's leg about him being a "secret weapon," maybe he's suited for succubus cases because he's gay? He wasn't visibly affected by Sakie's touch. But what I'm much more concerned about is that they never found that bear Hikari saw...

It's not really a harem unless you really look. But you know if two of them did get together, it'd be the teacher and succubus. Because she's nothing like one is said to be.
