Love To-LIE-Angle is a twelve episode anime adaptation of the manga written by Merryhachi. Each episode clocks in at around three minutes long. It was produced by Creators in Pack and Studio Lings, and directed by Hisayoshi Hirasawa.
Love To-LIE-Angle aired during the spring 2018 season of anime, and is available to watch on Crunchyroll.Love To-LIE-Angle focuses on Hanabi Natsuno, who moves in to the Tachibana House. Hanabi is very much the lead protagonist of a harem anime – though in this case it is a yuri harem.
The situations that she finds herself in a pretty much what you’d expect from this particular genre, and since this is an ecchi show, that means there is quite a bit of fanservice present.
The more risque stuff tends to be censored. Sometimes with light rays, other times with strategically placed items.Love To-LIE-Angle‘s biggest flaw is the short length of each of its episodes. At a measly three minutes long, each episode doesn’t really get enough time to properly establish itself.
This potentially could have been resolved by making the episodes at least a couple of minutes longer each. The limited run time doesn’t really do the show any favours, particularly as it feels like there should be much more to each episode.
In terms of fanservice, the show has plenty of that to offer up. Of course, that won’t appeal to everyone, but if you don’t enjoy fanservice you probably won’t go out of your way to watch this. The character designs are fairly appealing, though.
The best bet with Love To-LIE-Angle is probably to check out the original manga. The anime adaptation’s episodes are far too short to do the manga proper justice.
