(One episode watched):

Well, who wouldn't want to be 'pampered' by a deity? But I found this show to be rather boring; it struck me as neither particularly funny nor moving. I can't help thinking that Senko being a Kitsune might be just an excuse for a middle aged man to have a girl to leer at--it's OK, because obviously you can't force a God to do anything, and she's really 800-odd years old, right? The fact that some of the other spirits are somewhat less modest than Senko makes me suspicious as well. And what is the basic conflict here? That Nakano is at risk of being overwhelmed by the 'darkness' within him? But that problem seems to have been solved already in episode one (and wasn't exactly gripping even there). It all seems rather simplistic to me. Apparently Nakano will wind up with a small harem of female Demigods pampering him before long. But that doesn't intrigue me, and with no noteworthy jokes to mention, what are we supposed to watch for?
