Description
Even though this is a sequel to To Love-Ru, all of our main characters make an appearance along with some new additions. Rito continues to be caught in over the top uncensored ecchi scenarios. The alien Deviluke sisters still use their unique abilities to grab Rito's love confession. Nana and Momo have transferred into the school and meet Mea, who seems to be a worry free and joyful girl. Momo in particular wants to share Rito and create a harem for him. While scheming her plan, she confronts Golden Darkness also known as Yami. They are interrupted by possessed students who begin to fight with abnormal strength. Now the new plot line appears as a mysterious person who's in control of the students tests Yami's assassination skills. Who is this new enemy?

This manga is a great read as of the first 5 chapters. It provides a nice continuation on the ending of the original To Love Ru, and best of all, there's more yami-chan ^^. This manga is more focused on Momo and Yami more than anything else, and unlike the original To Love Ru, it has more of a plot. I recommend this to every guy out there.

This deserves good points just for the dose of monthly ecchi scenes, i just hope it won't turn into 1-2 chapter stories later on...
I prefer to look at it like ecchi picture book with something like a plot to link all the images together, and for those alone this definitely deserves a 10.

To LOVE-Ru: Darkness supersedes its predecessor by amazing amounts. The fanservice is still quite intact, but there is one thing that changed, the amount of plot. Yes, finally instead of the episodic(yet still appealing) chapters, you get an awesome amount of plot along with increased ecchi each and every chapter. The series did change from being weekly into monthly, but the amount of plot along with long chapters quickly and easily over weigh this fact.

This manga is really different from all other Harem manga. And after first season this one has really interesting turn of events. It was totally unexpected and that is what I liked the most.

As many people have already said, this series has changed entirely.
It went from an ecchi fanservice manga into one with an actual plot. The shift of main female lead (and pretty much main character, to be honest) from Lala/Rito to Momo is a good move on the mangaka's part.
As it is now it's very interesting and I await new chapters, of course there is always the ecchi, but it's not as ridiculous as the original series

Yup, this is one of those rare mangas which is simply better than its predecessor in all aspects. Now the main protagonists have switched to Momo and Yami who are really much more interesting and involved in the plot than the dum-dums that were Haruna and Lala (who are more like side characters now). Showing the increasingly complicated relationship between Momo-Yuuki-Yami is actually the best move the author could have taken.

To Love-ru is back with moar ecchi than ever before! Speaking of "moar", there's plot galore. New characters, delving into the secret past of Yami-chan, and Momo's plan to build Yuuki's harem. All this and moar are awaiting you in this epic of epics.

Great art, but superficial depth of plot.

Ever since reading Black Cat, I've followed Kentaro's art. He wrote a solid shonen story as well--nothing too deep or thought-provoking, but sufficient for its target audience (I was fourteen at time of reading).

Let's get the good points out of the way first:

The "plot" in Darkness is way beyond its predecessor, but more on that later. The art is good, too. Really good. Also, this may be the first time I've seen a manga approach a harem situation with a "bed ALL the girls" attitude, and coming from one of the girls, no less. Yes, the harem plan relates to the back story, but that's about as deep as the story gets.

And... that's about it. Now let's rip it apart.

I have no problem with episodic storytelling, but in Darkness, you can easily predict the ending of every last chapter: Rito is thrown into a sexual situation (uncensored this time), gets slapped/punched/kicked for his clumsiness (as he always "falls" into girls' chests, etc.), and ends up somehow attracting a harem of girls through being a nice guy, all the while never taking his existing relationship a step further.

His existing relationship was unexpected. Though it happened in the end of the manga, I'm genuinely surprised that Rito actually got a girlfriend. But now what does she get? One chapter? It seems almost as if they've grown farther apart.

The characters are all as shallow as you'd expect from a harem manga. The cast of girls is only attracted to Rito for his outstanding kindness. They never get any deeper than that. The first part of TLR and this are filled with moments that could potentially develop excellent characters, but unfortunately, the writer doesn't take any opportunities, instead leaving Rito as a wish-fulfillment self-insert character.

I mean, who else has noticed that Rito never does anything wrong? He gets kicked around a lot for accidentally touching girls, but it was never his fault. Nothing was ever his fault. Come to think of it, what flaws do any of the characters have? And I'm talking about real flaws, not hastily-added anger issues on top of a tsundere personality or anything like that. Everything is superficial at best.

All in all, To Love-Ru Darkness is a poorly-written, but extremely well-drawn manga. You may come away from this manga with a perverted smile remembering an excellent pseudo-sex scene, but if you're looking for deep story and characters, you won't find them here. I have to give props to the writer for daring to write what is potentially the first non-hentai true harem, but unless the later chapters get a lot better, this manga will forever live in mediocrity. Five stars out of five for the art. One out of five for the writing. I rate this a six.

2 chapters isn't much to base it off, but this time, it seems like there will be an actual plot. Rather than just being an episodic harem, there will actually be a story. There seems to be a lot more focus on Momo and Yami, and the content is a lot more mature (while the original was limited by the SJ serialization, this version actually has nipples shown). I'm liking the way this is going. Plus, Momo is just so damn cute. :3

However, I feel like the way the manga now has nipples drawn kind of detracts from it. They just feel like they're added for fanservice (they probably were). Maybe it was better in its old form. Whatever the case, I'm still going to be reading this one.
