Shinmai Maou no Testament
Toujo Basara was just told that he is going to be a “big brother” and, on top of it, his father is remarrying. Upon returning from a trip overseas with two gorgeous step-sisters, Toujo became concerned, for good reason. For the newest additions to his family are actually a demon and a succubus.
I can’t understand why an R+ rated show, with an increasing number of sexually oriented scenes as the episodes progress, was allowed to be released through a censored forum. I don’t have an issue with nudity but, what I do have an issue with, is watching white censor lines across the screen for several minutes at a time. I guess I could have attempted to find an uncensored version to rid myself of that but, the animation and story is not better. I was left underwhelmed by the artwork, with all the wrong questions to be asking regarding the plots and themes. A generic foundation without any growing or explanations led me to barely be able to make it through this one.
Not only is the overall animation simple and lacking detail, but, the fact that the majority of scenes are borderline pornographic, with white, blurred lines to augment visuals, makes the whole experience even worse. I understand that, in order to transition this series to alternate production companies, for the purpose of exposing to as many different audiences as possible, the censoring was required. That being said, most of the show was unwatchable and unfulfilling, due to these changes.
I found all of the mid-episode songs to be instantly forgettable and feel that they don’t add anything to the direction of the show, mainly because I have not really found one, via the “plotline.” The opening song, however, is pretty good.
Rating and Overall Enjoyment: 2/10
