Ever since Tomoki was a boy, he’s dreamed that the girl he loves vanishes into the sky. However, while he’s convinced it’s just a dream, his classmate Sugata is convinced that it’s related to an alleged ‘new continent’ that’s floating around the planet. According to Sugata’s calculations, it’s set to pass above their town at midnight and sends Tomoki to check it out. Little did Tomoki know that at that moment, a scantily-clad angel would fall from the sky! Calling herself a pet-class Angeloid named Ikaros, she promises to fulfill Tomoki’s every wish. Now, Tomoki is able to manipulate panties and do equally as perverted things with ease; but what is Ikaros really here for, and are her motives as pure as they seem?


Authors Thoughts:


I remember first viewing this anime. It was hilariously funny and a bit interesting. There were some plot points to it that I would have liked an answer but I am sure it was answered in the second season. Lots of panty shots. This anime actually helped (along with a lot of others) my distaste in the genre ecchi. But we will get to ecchi anime another day.
