Interviews with Monster Girls Review (Anime)

InterviewsMonsterGirls_01

Plot: “Succubi, dullahans, snow women and vampires… We’re a little different from humans and called “demi-humans.” Lately, we’ve been called “demis.” This is a stimulating and heartfelt school demi-human comedy featuring those very unique “demis” and a high school teacher named Takahashi Tetsuo, who’s highly interested in learning more about their daily lives and habits”

Interviews with Monster Girls is a slice-of-life comedy that follows the everyday lives of four girls with supernatural features. When I first heard of it I couldn’t help but think of 2015’s Monster Musume, my first encounter into the whole monster girl sub-genre. I mean the same tropes were present, a central male protagonist, a number of cute girls and a hazy plot. But I was wrong. Where Monster Musume went down the ecchi route Interviews with Monster Girls instead focuses more on social interactions, exploring the struggles that come with “fitting in” when you share characteristics with a fairy tale monster.

Demi-humans, vampires, succubus the stuff of myth and legends, in this world are in fact real and as times progressed they’ve now been accepted into modern society and coexist with regular humans. Enter Tetsuo an average biology teacher with a keen interest in “Demi’s” despite never actually meeting one. Fortunately for him starting the new school year are three Demi students and a Demi teacher all of whom he gets to know and asks to interview. The story follows Takahashi and the girls as they try to live an average life which, when you can carry you’re your head by your sides or manipulate men’s hearts unconsciously, is not easy.
