Venus & Mamoru

Mamoru-kun ni Megami no Shukufuku wo!
護くんに女神の祝福を! / the Blessings of the Goddess! also known as Venus to Mamoru, is a Japanese light novel series written by Hiroki Iwata and illustrated by Toshiyuki Satō following Mamoru Yoshimura and his far-from-normal high school life with girlfriend Ayako Takasu, who possess magical powers called “Beatrice”. The series was adapted into an anime series, which broadcast on WOWOW on October 6, 2006. It contained 24 episodes, with the last airing on March 30, 2007.

The story was pretty decent as far as romantic comedies go. I thought the ending arc was pretty weak, though. What I did like was that the confession came in the first episode so we don’t have to spend a whole series watching awkward school kids try to figure out how to confess to each other. The series instead spends its time showing how the two main characters develop the relationship. So, to sum up, Mamoru-kun is an enjoyable romantic comedy for people looking for something in that genre. It’s not a masterpiece, but it has enough good points to be a solid recommendation for folks looking for a romantic comedy.
