Decent anime genre new which has gained considerable strength recently, attracting some of its rare and innovation in the middle, but what is a monster girl really?

Translated into Spanish as “monster girl”, they are characters female, mostly humanoids, which have a human part and some other animal or mythological creature, which retains only: tail, wings, halo, ears (Kemonomimi), or even half human and half animal completely.

Taste for monster girls

It was the series that gave him a significant boost “Monster musume no iru nichijou” stereotype of ecchi, mangaka harem Okay (sensei) who worked works of the same genre (12 beasts, monster girl description among others), the series “Demi chan wa kataritai” the girls showed a monster in the school environment, nicknamed “demi” in this work. But, Why is this genre so passionate?, The answer focuses on highlighting the difficulties and the way of life in human life, although soul stereotypes are used as: harem or ecchi, it does not interfere with the development of the plot.
