There's a Kyo Kara Maoh OVA series? *squees*

I've consider this anime one of my guilty pleasures (along with Ouran High School Host Club). Besides, how can you not love an anime where the hero first gets sucked into another world through the toilet? XD

I've always enjoyed KKM because it takes several anime conventions, and turns it on its head: It's a magical girl/reverse harem anime, but with a hero instead of a heroine surrounded by bishonen (and there's actually a good explanation for this). It's also a medieval fantasy, but the hero is initially feared because he's a demon king; he even gets a "demonic" sword! And it pokes fun at all the shonen-ai conventions, without being very shonen-ai itself; it's played mostly for laughs, like a romantic comedy would.

Cut for character ranting, tl;dr )

At any rate, this is getting kind of long, so... I will say that I really like what I've seen of the KKM OVA so far. Those who've seen and liked the original series should enjoy it (plus, it's a teaser to yet another season, woo!) My only gripe is that the episodes are kind of aired out of order... Still, looking forward to seeing more! :D

Been watching Kyou Kara Maou on Youtube lately... I can see why the series is popular; it's got a lot of what I enjoy in an anime series: fantasy, comedy... (And the shonen-ai elements are a bonus. XD)

When Fandoms collide! )

EDIT: Heh, I guess I'm not the only one who noticed this connection... (It's nice to feel vindicated. XD)
