The show premiered on October 5, 2012, and ended on December 28, 2012, with a total of 12 episodes. The show is known for its ecchi and harem genre and is geared towards a male audience.

The premise of the show revolves around Rito Yuuki, a high school student who has a crush on his classmate Haruna Sairenji. However, his life takes an unexpected turn when an alien girl named Lala Satalin Deviluke suddenly appears in his bathtub. Lala is the princess of the planet Deviluke, and due to an intergalactic marriage law, she has come to Earth to marry Rito. Rito, however, is not interested in marriage, and chaos ensues as he tries to navigate his way through Lala's advances while keeping Haruna's affections intact.

To Love-Ru Darkness continues the story from the previous series To Love-Ru and To Love-Ru: Motto To Love-Ru. It introduces new characters and expands on the relationships between the existing characters. One of the major new characters is Yami, a weapon created by an alien race known as the Assassins. Yami is sent to Earth to assassinate Lala but instead ends up becoming friends with Rito and the rest of the gang.

The show's episodes are divided into different arcs, each focusing on a specific storyline or character. Among the prominent arcs in this series is the Golden Darkness arc, which highlights Yami's backstory and her relationship with Rito. Another is the Darkness' Arrival arc, which introduces Mea Kurosaki, another assassin who becomes friends with Yami and Rito.

The show's main draw is its fan service, which includes plenty of risqué humor, suggestive situations, and revealing outfits. At the same time, the show also delves into themes of love, friendship, and the challenges of growing up. Rito is constantly struggling to reconcile his feelings for Haruna with his growing attraction to Lala, and the show explores the complexities of these relationships.
