Animenewsnetwork - Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! tries something different this week, and it works for the most part. The show's still sticking to its monster-of-the-day formula, but we spend more time with the student–turned-monster before his transformation, so he's less of an outright joke and more a parody of different anime tropes. He's the boy so cute his male classmates adore him. He's a proud "glasses character" who claims to be more than a match for any of his bespectacled female counterparts. He's also kind and popular, so it's only when his position is threatened that he turns to the dark side.
