THE BEST ANIME EVER! – A Love Letter To Heaven’s Lost Property [Part 1]

THE BEST ANIME EVER! – A Love Letter To Heaven’s Lost Property [Part 1]

There is no single genre of media that I have
more contempt for then the harem comedy. And all you have to do is look at that genre
tags to see why. “Harem Comedy.” “Harem”. Okay, so the stories going to involve a single
male character being lusted after by a bunch of women, and the plot will no doubt be forced
to revolve around a bunch of perverted scenes shoehorned in for the sake of the audience. But because it has to be PG 13, the male character
will no doubt be a sexless wimp, and nothing will ever actually come of this. Granted, there might be the occasional token
romance scene, but at the end of the day he’ll never actually pick a girl to date because
that would mean insulting everyone else’s waifu, which means we’re just gonna be blue
balled by the end of it all and forced to rely on doujins. And “Comedy” in this context basically
exists as an excuse to pad all the bits without fanservice, and more quickly move us along
to the bits with fanservice. But the problem with using comedy as a filler,
is that A: The target audience won’t care about any of that and will end up skipping
through the episode to get to the parts with boobs, and B: both comedy and romance rely
heavily on good writing and characters, and since no one involved in the production actually
cares about anything besides placing as many characters with boobs onscreen at once as
possible, the writing will inevitably suck, which means the characters will be shit, which
in turn means that the comedy won’t be funny and the romance will be hollow. Tan-fucking-fastic. Can’t wait to start watching. That’s why I think it’s very important
going into this that you understand that Heaven’s Lost Property is not usually the kind of show
I would even bother to watch, let alone top my favorite anime list. Under normal circumstances, I wouldn’t touch
a show that looked like this with a 100 foot pole, but that hasn’t always been the case. Back when I was 13 and had first gotten into
watching anime, I actually liked these kinds of show. And, of course I did. I was a teenager and these shows had boobs;
I was the target audience. And a dangerous combination of infinite free
time and a complete lack of taste meant that I watched ENDLESS amounts of this shit. Kampfer, To Love Ru, Cat Planet Cuties, Good
Luck Ninomiya-kun, Kanokon, Rosario Vampire, Sekirei, and many, many, MANY more. So I’m not exaggerating when I say that
Heaven’s Lost Property was the catalyst that changed all of that. After I had finished watching it, I tried
watching a different harem comedy like before, but I don’t remember what it was, because
I dropped it 2 episodes in. Then I tried watching another one, and the
same thing happened again,… and again. I couldn’t watch this garbage anymore, because
I had been spoiled by Heaven’s Lost Property; a show so mind blowing good, that it singlehandedly
gave me taste. And so it became my favorite anime. But surely that was then, and this is now,
right? I’ve seen OTHER amazing shows since then. Steins;Gate, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood,
Cowboy Bebop, Code Geass, Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, and way more. I mean it was fine to have a show like this
as my favorite anime back when I was 13, but it’s been 7 years since then. If I’m still holding onto this notion that
it’s anything more than a mediocre show at best, surely it’s just nostalgia or my
emotions and biases blinding me, right? Well I’ve thought that exact thing several
times, that I was remembering it through rose-tinted glasses and that it was time for me to grow
up and stop liking it, but everytime I rewatch it, I come away with a renewed confidence
in its long-held position as my #1 favorite anime. But how could something that looks like this…
and has jokes like this… and was advertised like this… possibly be anything but awful? Well, that’s why I’m here today. Ladies and gentlemen, I thrilled to finally
present to you, a video series 7 FUCKING YEARS in the making, A Love Letter To Heaven’s
Lost Property. ——- So Heaven’s Lost Property AKA Sora no Otoshimono,
or SnO which is the way I’ll mostly be referring to it as, was originally a manga written by
this god of man, Suu Minazuki, which started its run on March 26th, 2007. And look at that! It just so happens to be the 10th anniversary
of the manga today! What a coinkydink! It ran for 77 chapters, and for exactly 7
years. Around 2 years after the manga started, production
studio AIC ASTA announced that it would adapt the manga into an anime, which eventually
ended up with two seasons, Sora no Otoshimono and Sora no Otoshimono Forte, and later also
had two movies, The Angeloid of Clockwork and Eternal My Master. …Huh, that was ominous. We’re going to be looking primarily at the
anime, because for awhile at least, they both follow the same plot pretty much scene for
scene. Now, you know how there are some shows with
a hook that instantly grabs you? Like, guy gets sucked into a video game and
has to survive or die, or giant man eating monsters are attacking and guy has to defeat
them or die? Yeah, SnO doesn’t really have a hook like
that, at least at the start, which makes explaining why it’s so amazing really difficult. I mean, if you just listen to the general
plot description, you’d be in danger of falling asleep. The story follows the life of a an average
high school kid named Sakurai Tomoki who one day has a girl literally fall from the sky
and swear her life to him, claiming that he is her master, and the story, at least initially,
is about how his life changes living with her. Again, without having seen the show and without
proper context, that sounds like the kind of anime I would absolutely despise. Which is why, for the first episode at least,
I want to do a deep dive and examine each scene individually and explain how SnO sets
itself apart. I’ll move into more broad analysis in future
videos, but for the time being I think that’s the best way to start. Also if you want to watch along… well, unfortunately
the American streaming license for the show expired a few months ago, and while you can
still buy the DVDs, as I will explain in a later video, Funimation did everything possible
to ruin SnO, so uh… fuck ‘em. I’ve taken the liberty of putting a torrent
link in the description below. (But you didn’t hear that from me.) So, the first episode opens on a dream. Our protagonist, Sakurai Tomoki, stands opposite
an angel, while a narration plays telling us that they both deeply love each other. But then… the sky steals the angel away,
and he wakes up from his dream. Then we cut to a white haired man standing
spotlit in a room, who introduces himself as Sugata Eishiro. He shows us a computer screen with a map of
Earth open, and a black hole moving around it. He explains that the black hole is a disturbance
in the Earth’s magnetic field, that’s existed for at least as long as Humanity has
been able to monitor it. There have been many possible explanations,
but Suguta declares that their hypothesis are flawed because their methods are grounded
in reality, and he has a theory as to what that disturbance really is. A whole new world, floating up in the sky! Now even without any future knowledge of the
show, this is already a really interesting way to begin the first episode of a harem
comedy, because what just happened is solely plot related. Like, if you’ve watched as many shitty harem
comedies as I have, you’ll find that the vast majority of them usually start with an
action scene. Kampfer for example, opens up with two characters
fighting each other, a blue haired girl running away from a red haired girl with a gun. We have no idea who they are, why they’re
fighting, what the stakes are, or even something as basic as their names. The way the blue haired girl is able to dodge
all the bullets and jump off a cliff onto a moving car tells us that they have probably
have magic powers, or are at least superhumanly enhanced, so in addition to not knowing what
the hell is going on, know we now don’t even know what’s possible. Like, the blue haired girl is getting shot
at, but is she in any real danger? If she is superhuman, would a bullet even
kill her if it hit? And at the end of the fight, she falls off
a building and it looks like she’s in trouble, but we have no reason to think that the fall
would be lethal considering we just saw her survive a fall from great height. Oh, and the cherry on top is that this fight
isn’t even a cold open into a future episode or something, it’s literally pointless. It’s pretty much happening in an alternate
universe from the rest of the show, and will never come up again. Okay, so Kampfer is a shit-fest. We all know that; why am I bringing it up? Well, the question this brings to mind is,
“Why did Kampfer open with a shitty fight scene that had nothing to do with anything?”. It’s not even like Kampfer starts off slow
and picks up later. There’s literally another fight scene 3
minutes after this one ends. So the only answer I can come to is, “Well,
their target audience is a bunch of perverted 13 year old guys, and the creators were probably
afraid that if they started off the show with anything but explosions, the target audience
might have gotten bored in the meantime and… I dunno, gone off to set small animals on
fire.” You remember all those shitty harem shows
I mentioned watching earlier? 3/4ths of them opened this way, and the other
1/4th had boobs prominently placed on screen within the first minute. The producers lack of faith in the audience’s
attention spawn is what I believe causes a lot of shitty anime to open up us this way,
and you compare that to SnO’s opening, which is spent entirely introducing characters and
plot elements, some of which won’t even be important until way later in the show,
it boggles my mind! “Okay, whoopdy shit” you might be saying,
“so it’s not as bad as Kampfer. That award also goes to 99.999% of all other
anime.”, and yeah, that’s a fair point. This slow opening doesn’t automatically
make SnO a good show, but I do think it reveals a difference in in the attitudes of the creators. By not opening with mindless fighting, explosions,
and boobs, SnO is trusting that you won’t just get bored, or distracted by shiny lights. I mean sure, we’ll get to the sillier parts
of the show momentarily, but the point I’m trying to make is the fact that the show opens
in such a unique way would have already had me interested if I was watching it for the
first time. So getting back on track, we cut to Tomoki
in bed, while a girl named Sohora attempts to wake him up for school. She rips the blanket off his bed, and discoveries
he has morning wood. She screams, and Tomoki says, “You know,
I hear that’s a good sign”, as Sohora karate chops the shit out of him. Now huge fan of this show that I am, I don’t
like this scene. It’s pretty generic, I know SnO can do a
LOT better, and it makes it THAT much harder to get anyone to watch the show, when that’s
the first joke. But… being the massive fanboy that I am,
I can justify it a little bit. First of all, it’s the only bit of slapstick
comedy we’ll have for the next 10 or so minutes, and after the unusually serious opening,
it’s important to establish that SnO is also a comedy, albeit one with a really good
story. Second, even as cliche as the joke is, SnO
does manage to put a unique spin on it. In most other shows, when the guy gets hit,
that’s sorta it. Just cut to the guy being hurt. But here, as Sohora hits him, it cuts to a
professional black belt chopping the top off a bottle, both to show the strength of her
hit, and to not so subtly imply that she broke his dick off. And finally, with my future sight which I
shouldn’t be using, I know it leads to a MUCH better callback joke in season 2. So, overall, could’ve been better, but it’s…
fine as it is. We later see Tomoki at school falling asleep,
and again the angel appears to him in his dreams again, cryptically telling him that
the sky holds her captive. Sohora wakes Tomoki up from the dream, and
we see that he’s crying, for an as of yet, unknown reason. Again, I appreciate that SnO is taking time
to foreshadow and set up plot points that won’t even come back into play until the
very end of the story. Anyways, apparently these dreams have been
recurring ever since he was a little kid, so Sohora suggests that Tomoki go see Suguta
Eshiro, apparently the smartest person at the school, and see if he knows anything about
what could be causing it. Tomoki is against the idea, mentioning that
he’s too weird to even be seen in the presence of, but Sohora quite literally strong-arms
him into it. Suguta starts off by showing the pair the
thing he showed us in the opening, the disturbance in the Earth’s atmosphere that he believes
to be a new continent. He immediately jumps to the conclusion that
the disturbance and Tomoki’s weird dream are linked, and as luck would have it, it
just so happens that the disturbance is set to pass over their town that night, so he
suggests that they all go observe it. Cut to later that night, and mitigating circumstances
have conspired to keep Suguta and Sohora busy, so it’s just Tomoki all alone. But just as he’s about to leave, he looks
up and sees a giant hole in the sky, and something shooting out of it at incredibly high speeds. It crash lands just in front of him, and at
the bottom of the crater is… an angel. Tomoki’s immediate reaction is to get the
hell out of there, when his path is suddenly blocked by a falling pillar. And not just the one, but dozens of them are
falling out of the hole in the sky. He again starts to run, but stops himself,
realizing the angel might be in danger. He drops down into the crater, and lifts her
unconscious body out. But Tomoki looks up, and realizes that one
of the falling pillars is seconds from flattening him. He closes his eyes and screams. Suddenly, the sound of flapping wings, and
Tomoki is soaring above the town. The chain from the angels collar begins to
lengthen, eventually wrapping around his hand. She brings him back to the ground, and says,
“Nice to meet you. I am a Pet-Class Angeloid, Type Alpha Name:
Ikaros. I am here to fulfill your every desire, my
Master.” So I’m going to pause here and tell you
something I think is interesting. Despite being an action show, and fight scenes
playing a huge role in the story later on in the anime, and even more so in the manga,
this scene of Tomoki first finding Ikaros is the closest we’ll get to an action scene
until Episode 8. You heard right, EPISODE 8! Like I said earlier, the fact that it didn’t
open with an action scene is impressive enough, but to have the restraint to hold back for
8 episodes before having the first real fight scene in a show like this is a commitment
to narrative pacing I wouldn’t think was possible! Again I think this reveals a difference in
the priorities the creators of SnO had. If there first instinct was, “let’s make
money” they would have thrown action scenes everywhere, a la Michael Bay. But instead, they hold back the reins for
8 whole episodes. And do you know why? It’s specifically to avoid being like Kampfer,
or To Love Ru, or Cat Planet Cuties. SnO spends a large part of the first 7 episodes
building up it’s characters personalities and further establishing the plot, so when
shit does finally hit the fan and things get moving? We know exactly what’s going on, why it’s
happening, we understand the characters and their motivations for fighting. And you know what all that gets you? It means you actually GIVE A SHIT. Instead of, “Oh, I guess these two people
I don’t know are fighting, and I don’t really care what happens or who wins.” you
get, “Wow, these two characters that I’ve grown invested in are fighting for reasons
I totally understand, and I REALLY want to know what’ll happen next!” It’s such basic shit, but you’d be surprised
how many shows can completely screw it up! Anyways, back to the first episode, Tomoki
saves Ikaros, and Ikaros saves Tomoki. We cut to the next morning, where Tomoki’s
just woken up, and remembered what had happened last night. Ikaros then starts moving towards him, asking
him if there’s anything at all that he desires. Of course his immediate thought, as any teenage
guys would be, is her boobs, but he stops himself and quickly changes his answer to
money instead. He then has a mini-panic attack in the corner
thinking about he almost got it on with an alien, before Ikaros interrupts asking if
1 billion would be enough money. He says “Yeah, sure – whatever.” and Ikaros pulls out a card. A warning: the following effect is bad-fucking-ass. Oh god I love that so much. The way the card bursts open slowly, then
rapidly speeds up. The way the wind blows Ikaros’s hair and
wings like that, the way whatever it’s transporting is spawned into reality as glowing lego blocks
build it, and then the way transport effect collapses in on itself and disappears. It just looks so fucking cool, and it looks
even cooler when it happens to entire cities later in the manga. Anyways, Ikaros then types the desired amount
of money into the device, and it is spawned accordingly. As what just happened sinks in, Tomoki asks
her how the hell she did that. She explains that the card is essentially
a teleportation device that delivers the required equipment from Synapse. Tomoki asks what the hell Synapse is, and
we get the classic, “I had no other information stored regarding Synapse” line. And spoiler alert for the none of you who
haven’t figured it out from those two sentences, that giant hole in the sky is Synapse. So Tomoki, the protagonist of an ecchi harem
comedy mind you, now essentially has a really hot robot genie who can grant wishes. So in the average harem comedy, what would
happen? Well, nothing, because every harem comedy
protagonist is generic nice guy wuss, who would just forget about it until he accidently
tripped into her boobs. Meanwhile, what does Tomoki do with it? Pretty much everything you’ve ever dreamed
of doing. He turns himself invisible and both spies
on girls changing, and gropes them. He stops time, and wanders around town naked
just because he can, pervs on more girls, shrinks himself, steals shit, and has Ikaros
cook a feast fit for a king. Hell, he even has Ikaros strip for him, which
is something I’m pretty sure no other harem protagonist would ever have the balls to do. Admittedly he does wimp out and ask her to
stop, but she doesn’t, saying that, “She was not designed to rescind orders.”. But still, the fact that he even asked her
in the first place says a lot about the kind of character he is. I have plans in a future episode to go WAY
more in-depth on why I think Tomoki is a fucking great protagonist, but this is just a little
taste in the meantime. Anyways, after a long day of bending the laws
of space and time to his will, Tomoki goes to bed, offhandedly saying that all that’s
left to do now is conquer the world! The next morning he wakes up to… nothing. He goes outside, and sees Sohora’s clothes
on the ground. Ikaros walks up behind him, and informs him
that World Domination will be completed shortly. You see, Ikaros activated a card based on
Tomoki’s offhand comment, and because no human on Earth would recognize Tomoki as their
ruler, the program decided the most efficient route to world conquest was to just delete
everyone else, which is simultaneously really dark and really funny. So Tomoki, realizing just how much he’s
fucked up, asks her if she can reverse it, to which she replies that she cannot. As established earlier, she was not designed
to rescind orders. Tomoki runs around town just to see it for
himself, and yes, everyone else is gone. It’s just Tomoki and Ikaros, the only two
people in the entire world. Here, and again, something unusual for an
harem comedy, we actually get a really touching character scene. Tomoki’s dealing with the grief from having
basically killed everyone on Earth, and Ikaros feels awful because her actions made her Master
feel that way. Ikaros says that she could destroy herself
if she had become a burden to him, and Tomoki sarcastically says, “Yeah… wouldn’t
that be nice.” So Ikaros, oblivious to sarcasm, spawns a
gun, aims it at her head, and almost pulls the trigger, before Tomoki tackles her to
the ground. He says that it was just a joke, but Ikaros
again says that she can’t rescind orders. Tomoki interjects, saying that it’s his
fault everyone’s dead, and begs her to stay with him, to not to leave him all alone. Ikaros agrees, as Tomoki cries into her shoulder,
and says that he wishes this was all just a bad dream. Suddenly we cut back to Tomoki’s dream,
where the blue haired angel tells him, “Treasure your angel. Never part ways with her.”. The next morning, Tomoki wakes up to Sohara
yelling at him. He freaks out for a second, before Ikaros
reveals that because he wished it was a dream, she activated a card that made it all a dream. Of course, the show also subtly implies that
the angel in his dream had something to do with it. Tomoki thanks Ikaros profusely, before collapsing
onto his bed in relief. But Ikaros is confused about something. She recalls that he asked her to stay by his
side, and wonders if that should have been left as part of the dream. To that, Tomoki says, “You should do whatever
you want….” Ikaros responds simply, “Yes, Master.” WHEW! So that’s the first episode of SnO, now
time for the broad analysis. If I had to describe it in one word, it’d
be “efficient”. Efficient as fuck, even. As you may have figured out from how long
it took me to explain, this episode has so much going on that it barely has a second
to breathe. I mean, in just this 24 minutes, we been introduced
to almost all the major characters and gave each of them time to leave an impression,
introduced major plot elements, both immediately relevant as well as setting up for stuff that
won’t even matter until the very end of the story. We had an entire Monkey’s Paw esque “you
get what you wish for” arc, covered the fallout and consequences, and capped it off
with Tomoki learning his lesson. It set up the romance for Tomoki and Ikaros,
while also taking the time to have a LOT of really funny comedy. I mean fuck, just chart the progression of
the tone in this episode to see what I mean. We start serious, then it turns humorous,
then we go all the way to slapstick comedy, have a sweet moment, another serious moment,
funny scene, serious scene, funny scene, sudden action scene, then the tone goes to romance
momentarily before cutting away and going into comedy. Then we go serious again, and finally end
off on upbeat and romantic. And here’s the thing. In any other show, a tone progression like
that would cause it to implode in on itself. On paper, this doesn’t fucking work. But one of the things that makes SnO special
is that it can not only do it, but do it WELL and better than any other show I’ve ever
seen. And I don’t know whether to chock it up to
the fantastic writing or excellent direction, but it just works! At no point in the episode did I feel like
I was suffering from tonal whiplash, or like a scene felt out of place or disconnected
from everything else. One of SnO’s biggest strengths is that is
has an uncanny ability to transition seamlessly from comedy to action to drama to romance
and back to comedy, all without missing a beat, and this episode is the perfect example
of that. In fact, it’s the perfect example of pretty
much everything in the show. One of the things the first episode does REALLY
well is setting your expectations. SnO is a drama. SnO is a romance story. SnO is a perverted comedy. And SnO is an action show. This episode had every one of those elements
present here. Were they a bit rushed? Maybe. I feel like it could have really benefited
from an additional minute or two of runtime to stretch out its legs a bit, but I’m not
about to fault it for being a bit fast considering everything it was able to accomplish. And another thing that I think really sets
the show apart is the meticulous details hiding everywhere. As I mentioned early I adore all the detail
that goes into the card transporting effect, but but there’s a ton of other stuff I like. For example, I like how every few seconds,
Ikaros’s armor and receptors blink. Or the multiple references to another Suu
Minazuki manga, Judas, like Peter appearing on the money, or how Eve is on Tomoki’s
wallpaper, with art that was drawn by Suu Minazkui himself! (By the way, Eve and Mizuki also appear later
on as a background characters.) Or, how after Tomoki gets naked, you can see
Ikaros carrying his pajamas throughout the day. Or how when Tomoki goes to spy on Sohora,
he starts off hiding behind a bed sheet because he didn’t know if the invisibility would
work or not, and didn’t want to get caught if it didn’t. Or how in the end credits, all those pillars
are gone, and everything’s strangely back to normal, barring some acorns lying on the
ground, one of which goes onto grow into a tree that becomes a plot point later on. Just so much attention to detail everywhere
you look! But I think my favorite example is the credits. Usually in a show like this, there’d be
some lazily animated slideshow with some generic song playing in the background. If you’re lucky you sometimes get bits of
animation here and there, but even then, it’s never anything interesting because it’s
just the credits, and who cares about the credits, you know? But no, that’s not the case in SnO! The credit scene is animated exactly the same
as the rest of the episode, with some really nice hair animation by the way, and has a
good song playing over it. Which may make you think, “Oh, this must
be a one time thing and we’ll get that slideshow next episode, right”. No, because believe it or not, there is a
new completely original ending animation and a different song for EVERY. SINGLE. EPISODE. I cannot even begin to tell you how much that
blows my mind. Every single one of the 25 episodes of SnO’s
two seasons has different credits animation and a new song. That’s 25 total songs just for the credits,
and about 36 minutes combined of extra animation, which would be enough to make almost 2 complete
episodes! I don’t know of a SINGLE other anime that’s
ever done that, because you’d have to be insane to put that much effort into something
so meaningless, right? That right there, is how I know I’m not
crazy for loving this show as much as I do. That kind of effort and passion? That isn’t something that comes from a harem
comedy that was only ever made to make money off of honey teenage boys. That is something that can only possibly be
motivated by artistic passion. That’s the kind of thing that happens when
you have really amazing people on your staff who want to make an equally amazing product. Someone, somewhere, CARED about SnO. The studio put a lot of effort into making
it as amazing as it could ever possibly be, not just for the credits, but in every aspect
of the show, and they went above and beyond. If I had to sum up why SnO is good in a minute
or less, I would say that it’s simply the best in it’s genre by a country mile. It has multifaceted characters that grow and
change over time and are more than just archetypes with boobs attached. It’s comedy is so completely out there and
batshit insane, that I guarantee you’ve never seen anything else that holds a candle
to it. It has a really fascinating narrative hiding
in the background that starts off slow but gradually ramps up to an epic battle between
gods for the fate of the universe. Believe it or not, most of the characters
are dead by the end of the manga. Yeah! Dramatic, impactful character death, in an
harem comedy! Bet that just blew your mind. SnO takes risks, does things differently,
and above all else, it put being good above being profitable on the priorities list. Because… when you’re not just motivated
by money? Because when you see past the boobs on the
poster and find the potential in a project like this? Because when you actually give a shit about
what you’re making? Well… the sky’s the limit. [record scratch]
Wait a minute, where do you think you’re going? That was just the part 1! I’m not even REMOTELY close to being done
explaining why I love this show so much. But… there’s a snag in all this. You see, I have difficulty believing this
video will ever come close to making it’s money back. I’m operating under the impression that
it’ll be 110% a passion project, and probably a waste of time I could be using to make something
that pays rent. So I’ll just say this now. My Patreon? Think of that as a direct correlation line
graph. The more money I make from that, the more
time I have to spend working on this. So if you want this Love Letter To SnO series
to come out faster, than I ask that you head over there and throw a few bucks my way if
you can. In the meantime though, I wanna shoutout everyone
who’s currently helping me out. And not just the usual $10+ patrons. This is a special occasion, and I want everyone
to know how much I appreciate them. So without further ado, special thanks to… Thank you all VERY much for watching, and
I’ll see you guys, next time. Later!

100 thoughts on “THE BEST ANIME EVER! – A Love Letter To Heaven’s Lost Property [Part 1]

  1. Part 2 here!

  2. You got a new sub as soon as I saw the title of this video.

  3. WOW… I had a similar…ish experience, myself.

    When I first became aware of the show from FUNimation's advertising, I thought it just looked HORRIBLE. I was just baffled as to why a professional studio would think that kind of advertising was appealing, and just kind of forgot about it pretty quickly. Then, some time later, I saw people posting images online, mostly from the manga, highlighting some deeper, more emotional scenes, like this one moment where Ikaros is all sad and Tomoki is all "She… missed me…?" So, I began to think "Hmmm… I wonder if there might actually be a bit more depth to this series than I initially thought?" Then it all came down to the moment I saw an image of Ikaros with a dead-serious look on her face drawing a massive arrow to shoot at someone, with text reading "Arrow to the knee joke. Come on… SAY IT!" And I was like "Ok, now I am DEFINITELY giving this a chance."

    And that I did. And I loved it! I was so glad to be so wrong with my initial impression. I've since been more willing to give even really absurd things that are frantically waving red flags a chance, with post positive and negative results. Like… I'm pretty sure I saw Highschool DxD immediately after, and that's one of the worst things I've ever seen in my life. Every single character is a majorly-inconsistent moron who makes everything worse for themselves and each other for no reason at all, and nothing in that show's entire universe makes any sense. But, I've also landed quite a few surprise hits for myself, like Overlord, which initially looked like it was going to be another generic ripoff of Sword Art Online (which was already pretty bad), only to end up with one of the coolest fantasy worlds I've ever seen, with a wide array of completely inhuman-looking characters that I've been craving to see for YEARS.

    So, yeah… Heaven's Lost Property rocks pretty hard. I'll be taking notes here for a series I've been developing for a while now…!

  4. Ah Kampher. I wanted so bad for it to be good. Transgender main characters are basically mythical…

  5. they don't want to hear it but it's the truth. the manga is better.
    manga is for more mature audiences. anime has more perversion yet limits what you are likely to see.
    there is so little perversion in the manga for Rosario vampire i forgot it was the same series as the anime several times. in get rather dark at various points.

    even heavens lost property / sora no otoshimono
    has less perversion than the anime. and the last ark or 2 it's heavily reduced to tell a serious story that was incredible.
    oh you did experience the godsend that is the source! you win sir. you win.

    the last ark or 2 of the manga…was really REALLY good.

  6. What a fucking weeb.


  8. I don't see how Clannad couldn't make me cry but this somehow almost did!

  9. The Vanilla beta harem protag vs the special snowflake power fantasy light novel protag. Who wins in a blandness contest with competitions in indecisiveness, women sexually assaulted and bullshite plot

  10. I think people are too liberal with the term harem. I don't think having romantic conflict over a person that we like as an audience and the characters like as a real person, justifies the negative connotation behind the term harem.

  11. 2:28 anime name?

  12. This guy has said my fellings

  13. I could NOT agree more. My fiance and I LOVE HLP and haven't found another that matches it.

  14. I haven't seen the anime, but the manga was amazing

  15. Sora no otoshimono was one of the best anime I have ever watched.
    But theres one thing I hate: is that Ikaros and Tomoki didn't end up together because Ikaros loved him and I really think Ikaros deserves him.

  16. >one word
    >efficient as fuck
    >was three words
    > LOGIC

  17. I like Heaven's Lost Property

  18. You know what everyone Heaven's Lost Property that it was a great one I've been watching this like in 2007 I still remember that came out and it was very sexy big and fantasy and don't forget it was funny Heaven Lost Property it was very greatest TV show ever but I never saw in a you know the movie like two of them so it's okay anyway because it was a great one but I still remember that the last season that it was very sad right there that she sacrificed herself and to save boy I can't believe it I forgot about that this one of Heaven Lost Property came out in Adult Swim and Cartoon Network know some of you that you do not want some of your that you don't know Adult Swim was created by Cartoon Network only for adults went by 11 to 4 in the morning. It was the greatest show ever that I seen it everything and it was very funny Heaven Lost Property it was great right there but the other one that where it was fun from the past future

  19. You know what if this guy doesn't like heaven Lost Property then why he's talking about it anyway because it is very exposed and that that too much and it is more ridiculous funny ever so I don't know what this guy he was talking about that if he not a fan of this one then he got problems to me that it is funny to me that it was ridiculous silliest and spanking on his face and his head and sometimes that you know seriously Heaven Lost Property it is very funny and ridiculous🤘🤘🤘☝☝☝☝

  20. wait this isnt digibro :-0

  21. You know what everyone this guy he got some very problems that he doesn't understand about animation or love or tragedy or the boobs or kind of you know so I will say the truth about you everyone Heaven's Lost Property that it is the greatest funniest even though exposed and tragedy but however it was a greatest TV show ever it came out in somewhere like Adult Swim believe it or not in Cartoon Network now some of you that remember this that it came out haven't lost property in 2007 because I started to watch it and it was very interested believe me it was very funny silly and exposed and I just heard about it that is some comment that and YouTube that they're going to make a heaven Lost Property season 3 but however they're not going to put the TV show going to put it on the movies I don't know if you want to see it season 3 just tell the club the creator of Heaven Lost Property and bring actors The Voice play if you want to see it season 3 just leave them of us comment and then they will make it but however it was not very funny that I want to see a season 3 or 4 or Beyonce let's at least that's Japan animation that's the oldest create like season 1 and season 2 and then then I'm going to make any more like season 3 or 4 or be on that so it's not fair but however that heaven Lost Property it was the funniest one ever and he was the greatest one ever that I ever seen it was ridiculous funny seriously

  22. Screw your sekirei is my favorite anime and the beginning fight scene has a purpose it just is not just handed out to you

  23. Love this anime

  24. Eternal my master has worst ending ever thank God for manga to save the day on this one

  25. it's iceros

  26. I'll be honest. I think I'm in the same boat as this guy. One of the first harem shows I watched was Sekirei. Some time after that, I watched Heaven's Lost Property, and I couldn't watch another harem show afterwards. I suppose this show gave me taste as well.

  27. aa love me some #fuckmomkeyjones

  28. Hey, finally someone who actually likes heaven's lost property!

  29. Nymph is the worst character. You can’t change my mind.

  30. I am so glad to find more people who like Sora no Otoshimono its so gRE A T

    I heard Eternal my Master and my face went blank. N o , f u c k t h a t m o v i e

    This also made me realize that its been ages since I've watched this show and that I didnt understand My Clockwork Angel for shit back then (1. Because I was like 11 and 2. Because I had spent the last two days binging the show and was completely fucked) so maybe I'll rewatch it.

  31. "You have to be insane to put that much effort into something so meaningless, right?"
    My friend, this was done with so many love

  32. I’m female and I actually watched a large amount of those shows when I was between the ages of 9-11.

  33. One of my favourite anime 2 seasons 2 movies and one of them won't even dubbed buy Funimation I hope the anime series can continue one day

  34. This is what I don’t get about heavens lost properties they say sagatu is a pervert but in the show he’s the smart and badass character I don’t get it

  35. one of my first animes to watch along side Akame ga kill and Code geass
    and I like Heaven's lost propperty the best of the first animes I watched
    it's impossbile to not add it to 10 favorite list

  36. Agreed! You got a new subscriber here

  37. i must say they make Tomoki brainless i don't understand why Tomoki cant see Akaros kindness i mean she done every thing for him and Tomoki didn't much notice that why she grab watermelon all the time because he was always busy watching girls breast or panties iam not saying that tomoki is a bad person he is real Nice but the problem was that he didn't able to see the loves of Akaros For Himself. She kind a looking happy in wedding day but that idiot still don't understand that she loves him to much >_<! Other Angeloid are also too good but akaros was the cutest .In the last movie of (Heaven lost property) they didn't show where other angeloids gone and how world come to end like this!!! what happen to that blue mother angeloid what happen to other Damn. Sorry for getting mad like this on that anime i mean its just a anime after-all and also sorry for bad English. I just wanted to share the feelings of mine but i hope i make you guys understand. Thx for the beautiful anime But the ending was real bad.


  39. It gives me hope to see someone like you give it the praise it needs

  40. Hayami Saori. Nuff said.

  41. i loved heavens lost property. i only have one complaint. that is one shit character. SOHARA. she is such an annoying character with like, two redeeming qualities

  42. I like to refer to Rosario+Vampire as Skoon's Quest for Poon.

  43. Girl und Panzer anyone?


  45. Me and you bro are definitely on the same page.

  46. What was the anime in 2:54?

  47. If tomoki does marry nymph,alpha and delta then I will!!!

  48. Code Gayass a shit.

  49. you understand it's greatness

  50. sorry dude got no money

  51. I was ten and this was on netflix also girl bravo these two are my only favorite harem anime

  52. That transport card in heaven lost property is one of the most over powered card in anime history. There are characters in other anime verse that would kill a person or two to have a card like that.
    Light Yagami from death note(He would have crushed every opponent easily)
    Lelouch from code geass(He would be untouchable)
    Aizen from bleach(he would be too invincible to even put a dent on him)
    Yugioh characters.

  53. Its not the best harem, but its top 5. I loved all the characters.

  54. Nisekoi does have an ending. It's just the nature of shounen manga to go on as long as possible.

  55. You won't guess how I found this video that I will now watch and enjoy. You commented on a digibro vid. So that youtube checkmark beside your name. And checked your channel out. Loved this show when I was 13

  56. i personally dont like that scene where he gets hit for having morning wood i mean come on how is that his fault ? you have no control over what you dream and what effect that has on your body once you wake up why did he have to get punished for that ?

  57. Question: Have you seen Sugar Punch Harem’s review on this show? If you have, what do you think about it?

  58. I can tell you watch digi. Oh wait i just saw your comment on his decompress and compress video!!


  59. If only rosario vampire had followed it's manga plot

  60. My first anime was Sora no otosuimono and to love ru lol and tomoki is savage

  61. Is it ever coming back

  62. 1:04 how did you know

  63. Just watched the final movie…… bawling my eyes out😢😢😭😭

  64. This anime is awesome one of the best.

  65. And yet all anime, not just these ones, still suffer from the same mundane tropes as shown. If you've seen one you've seen them all, and it's highly unrecommended to see one at all.

  66. This should be the standard for ecchi harem comedies.

  67. you're gay

  68. I’ve watched anime my entire life but this is one of the shows that got me INTO anime. This along with Sword Art Online and Attack on Titian. I just think it’s so funny how you referenced both of those shows back to back

  69. Yeah heavens lost property is hands down my favorite anime ever and I wish we will one day somehow get a season 3

  70. Also I was 10 when I watched heavens lost property so I didn’t really give a shit about boobs

  71. This is the first anime i ever watched. No lie, it was my first anime i ever watched.

  72. No one believes you, because it’s shit. Run of the mill ecchi comedy harem anime, complete with the same copy/paste -dere personalities

  73. It has a very deep meaning


  75. 🙏🙏🙏👍👍👍👍👏👏👏👏👏

    1000%passion work

  76. I watch no anime accept a few but I loved this anime so much I changed my profile pic to nymph

    And no I didn't watch it cause it was a harem comedy I just watched it cause I stumbled across it

  77. It's the best

  78. Is it a bad thing I’ve probably seen over half of the anime he mentions or shows

  79. This was the best amine

  80. 28:18 No one has EVER done that, no one has EVER done that in the history of Dota 2 (Ikarus best waifu) ADLG

  81. If only we all can get a angeloid in real life sadly no 😒😥

  82. I love you IKAROUS😫!!!! Rip

  83. I for some reason love this Titel

  84. Tomoki wore a Shirt that says 2019…. Let's hope for the best…

  85. My first anime

  93. We want a 3rd season you cheapskates, that last movie was a slap in the face

  94. why did the Ikaros and senpai die in this movie and why is she go to the synapse .
    I do not understand the ending at all please if some knows it then tell and please everyone tell them to makes season 3 of i

  95. For those needing this, those animes with ??? were Hundred and Seirei tsukai no blade dance

  96. I'm crying sooo hard I can't stop When I think about dam eternal my master… (crying while typing those words ) I wish it would have a 3rd season. To have all the left over info plus stuff from the final, so all the info that makes sense fits together. I try soooooooooo hard to explain my idea's in its return but everyone doubts it. That keep saying give up. Well I can't let go, hlp has touched my heart and soul (literally I will talk all day about how the emotional bits make me cry every time I Re watch, eternal my master rushed the big end, the emotions was to early, it needsto be fixed, maybe tomo's 2019 profacie will come true, I'm the biggest fan ever (at least I consider it) but I can't describe how much I love it, I have DVD blu rays of 1, 2 and movie 1. I LOVE HLP and I wish thay would consider making my , our wish of happiness come true…….. I might cry.

  97. Fucking weeb
