Tomoki’s just your average teenage boy, but with the help of a beautiful Angeloid, he has to power to be so much more. Then again, he is a teenage boy, so this could get messy!
What did you watch?
And that was season one. For the last thirteen days, I have totally immersed myself in Heaven’s Lost Property and it has been great. Hopefully, it’s not warped my mind too much… One of the great things now is that I can finally re-read my original review to see if I felt the same three years ago when I first watched it.
What’s it about?
Tomoki likes his quiet and peaceful life in his small town. There’s not much to worry about and he’s grateful for that. That was until a beautiful winged woman fell from the sky and declared him her master. With the power to grant wishes, Ikaros turns Tomoki’s life upside down. He still wants a peaceful life, but he also has a certain lust for life that could get him in trouble.
But Ikaros isn’t exactly who she claims to be. The truth will threaten to rip Tomoki’s life apart, although he’s more concerned with panties and sneaking into the girls’ locker room. Then, as if Tomoki’s life wasn’t complicated enough, another Angeloid appears and moves in with them. That peace and quiet looks like a distant dream at this stage.
What did you think?
I loved this series and looking back at my original review, I loved it then too so that’s great. I picked up some of the same things as my favourite moments although I’m surprised to see the absence of any comment on the exploding panties! In the original review, I mentioned the overuse of chibi and I still think they went over the top, but it does help make Tomoki that much less sinister.
What was your favourite moment?
My absolute favourite moment was the whole of episode four – the exploding panties episode. I literally laughed all the way through the episode. The idea of Tomoki being trapped in his house surrounded by panties that explode if he looks or touches them. It was just too funny. Even when they cut away to Sohara and Ikaros on a day out shopping, we would get little flashes of Tomoki flying through the air with a grin plastered to his face. This was a great episode, possibly one of my all-time favourites in any series.
What was your least favourite moment?
Again, this was something I picked up the first time around and that was how Tomoki treats Ikaros from time to time. He seems to have very little patience and quickly jumps to yelling at her. It’s especially odd as he has moments where he is thoughtful and considerate, often well above what you would expect.
Who was your favourite character?
This is such a hard one… Er… I mean how am I supposed to pick? Looking through the reviews, my favourite changed a lot. I think it’s between Tomoki and Sohara with Mikako just behind. I keep getting surprised that Tomoki isn’t just a hopeless horny teenager, which is how I remembered him. I also don’t remember liking Sohara as much, but on reflection, she’s the one that I believe should end up with Tomoki.
Who was your least favourite character?
This is another one that’s not easy to answer. I think on reflection, Nymph is my least favourite character. It’s mostly because of how she came into the series and instantly put everyone at an arm’s length. She has definitely grown on me as the series progressed, so when I say she’s my least favourite it doesn’t mean much as I love all the characters.
Who needs more screen time?
I definitely want more Mikako. She started off with lots of great lean-in comments and one-liners but has become a much more central character so those don’t happen as much. Any time she’s organising things and causing trouble is when she’s at her best like in the festival shooting competition. I know she has some more in the second season and I can’t wait.
Is it similar to any other anime you’ve seen?
I think the closest I’ve seen, which combines the ecchi elements with the comedic set pieces is Maken-ki. There are several episodes that focus on a specific event or festival that provide a lot of laughs. Otherwise, nothing is coming to mind. This series is rude and crude, but it is not nearly as ecchi as other shows. It definitely seems to focus on the absurd comedy more which is something I absolutely love.
Would you like another season?
Obviously, there’s the second season which I am just about to get into and then there’s a movie which I’ve never seen before, so I’m really excited about that. Ask me again after I’ve seen the movie.
