Yes, people. Monster girls are a thing in anime…..and/or monster boys if you count First Love Monster. Oh, and demi-humans or Ajin or the thing that has nothing to do with that Netflix series that I neglected to watch all of season 2 yet.
This is Interviews with Monster Girls.

Plot Summary: Tetsuo Takahashi is a teacher working at Shibasaki High School and specializing in the physiological studies of demi-humans. His students include Akira Takanashi, a vampire and lover of tomato juice; Kyōko Machi, a dullahan; and Yuki Kusakabe, a yuki-onna. The school also employs math teacher Sakie Satō, a succubus.
First Thoughts: Hmmmm….so the guy has a genuine interest in knowing about demi-humans and their lives. As in, he wants to learn about their specific ways, habitats, how they function in everyday life and seeing some friendship form between the monster girls and….this is quite nice. Again, there’s nothing offensive or offsetting in this show. No stupid sexual gags. No moronic horniness in the main character or anything like that and this is made by……A-1 Pictures? That one? OK, and since I’m liking the new Blue Exorcist and this one is moderately decent, this could be another time in the season that A-1 made something that doesn’t suck.
And please, A-1, make me like some of your work all the way.
Oh, and since this airs on Saturdays along side with March Comes in Like A Lion, it makes a good companion piece based on the tone on both shows….the calmer and serene-like type of shows. Something I would gladly watch after work.
