posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Tuesday that it has added the To Love-Ru, Motto To Love Ru, and the To Love Ru: Darkness TV anime series to its catalog. It also added the first season of the Symphogear (Senki Zesshō Symphogear) TV anime series on Wednesday.
Crunchyroll is offering the To Love-Ru, Motto To Love Ru, and To Love Ru: Darkness series for Crunchyroll users in the United States and Canada.
Crunchyroll describes the three To Love-Ru series:
Rito Yuki had no idea the planet Develuke even existed when their Princess Lala teleported into his bathtub, but now he finds himself to be engaged to the beautiful girl with a pointed tail. Problem: various aliens are showing up on missions of varying hostile intent. Worse, the girl that Rito REALLY loves is still completely unaware of his feelings!
The interstellar insanity continues! Princess Lala has finally started to admit her true feelings for the young man she's inexplicably engaged to. Unfortunately, her sometimes erratic technology added with the snags and snarls of intergalactic politics are still causing major problems. Love takes a quantum shift into the wrong gear and the star brakes are broken in the extra-special, extra-crazy extraterrestrial romance to end them all, Motto To LoveRu!
Rito Yuki has more women in his life than he knows what to do with. In case it wasn't enough to have all three Devilukean princesses under one roof, he now has alien girls from all over the galaxy attending his school, too! But when the arrival of a mysterious red-haired girl threatens one of their own, Rito and the girls must stand up to a powerful adversary- the likes of which they've never seen before.
