So I Can't Play H (or Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai) is an anime romantic comedy based on a light novel series of the same name written by Pan Tachibana and illustrated by Yoshiaki Katsurai. The anime adaptation was produced by the studio feel. and premiered in 2012.

The story centers around a high school boy named Ryosuke Kaga, who is obsessed with collecting erotic books, DVDs, and manga. He dreams of living a life surrounded by beautiful women, and his fantasies often get him in trouble at school. One night, Ryosuke sees a beautiful girl standing outside his balcony. He tries to hit on her, but before he can do anything, the girl suddenly disappears, and Ryosuke is left alone.

The next day, Ryosuke meets a new transfer student named Lisara Restall, who turns out to be the same girl he saw the night before. Lisara is a grim reaper who has come to Earth to collect "achieved points" from humans, which are used to maintain the balance between life and death. She needs Ryosuke's help to collect these points, and in return, she promises to fulfill his wish of living a life surrounded by beautiful women.

The catch is that every time Lisara collects points from Ryosuke, his life force is reduced. To replenish his life force and keep him alive, Ryosuke has to engage in erotic activities with Lisara, which ultimately leads to a series of comedic and racy situations.

As the story progresses, Ryosuke and Lisara face various challenges and obstacles in their quest to collect the necessary points. They encounter other grim reapers, supernatural beings, and even a rival human girl who is in love with Ryosuke. Meanwhile, Ryosuke also learns more about Lisara's past and her personal motivations for collecting achieved points.

So I Can't Play H blends elements of romance, comedy, and fantasy to create a unique and engaging story. The anime features colorful and well-designed characters, with Ryosuke and Lisara serving as the main leads. Ryosuke is portrayed as a perverted yet charming young man who gradually matures throughout the series. Lisara, on the other hand, is initially aloof and mysterious but eventually becomes more open and vulnerable as she interacts with Ryosuke.

The anime's humor is often bawdy and irreverent, with a lot of the jokes revolving around Ryosuke's sexual antics and Lisara's reactions to them. That said, the show also has moments of genuine tenderness and emotion, particularly during some of the more dramatic scenes.

One notable aspect of So I Can't Play H is its use of fan service, which includes frequent shots of female characters in provocative poses and clothes. However, unlike some other anime series, the fan service in So I Can't Play H is integrated into the story and characters, serving as a thematic and narrative device rather than just cheap titillation.

Overall, So I Can't Play H is a fun and enjoyable anime that balances comedy, romance, and fantasy in a unique and entertaining way. Its likeable characters, engaging plot, and stylish visuals make it a must-watch for fans of the genre.

So I Can't Play H is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (13 episodes). The series first aired on July 6, 2012.
