If your dream in life is to become a womanizing, unfeeling sociopath who will do anything to climb to the top then Blue Flames could very well be your guide. Not very often to I see something so reprehensible that it has practically no value once so ever. I don’t know what the point of this was supposed to be, unless it was to be used as educational PSA for rich girls on how to avoid gold-digging gigolos.

In the story, Ryuuichi Kaizu moves from girl to girl, using them as he pleases for sex and money or influence until they are no longer read more

Ryuuichi is sleeping his way to the top. Cool. This isn't a hentai FYI.

This anime revolves around Ryuuichi, a misogynist who sleeps with women to get to the top. However this OVA does nothing to prove that he reaches his goals, or does anything other than look like a total douche. Honestly, he's a male whore. Women beg to sex him. There is no story and I just told you all about it. This is definitely a woman repelant and this type of story would make a woman cringe at the sight of it. This is a fairly novel concept since it's post-OVA boom but read more

My biggest anime guilty pleasure; an anime that's so bad its good, or is it really? This review is quite controversial, especially towards the end, so I apologize if I offend anyone. Blue Flames was created with the intention of making the audience hate the main character, which actually makes him very admirable for his deeds. He is a heartless mastermind, along the lines of Light Yagami, manipulating humanity at his whim for his own sadistic pleasures. Whoever said actions speak louder than words needs to have a conversation with this guy. You never truly know what he is thinking; read more

This is my first review so don't be harsh on me :P
This anime didn't suck at all; well, it could have sucked if I am stuck inside a romance bubble :P
The main character, Ryuuichi, is a modern demon that would do anything to reach the top. On his way he meets, not only girls that he wants to exploit to achieve his short-sighted goals, but also some allies as well. This anime shows in a direct way that society is, unfortunately, build and may be ruled, not by romance, but by heartless, ruthless people. Ryuuichi wants to become one of these - not read more

The two top-tier anime for REAL MEN; those who follow the philosophy of 'treat 'em mean, keep 'em keen' a little too closely.

Makoto of School Days infamy sees it as perfectly fine to sleep around/have orgies with as many girls at his school as humanly possible over a short period of time... immediately after confessing his love to a sweet, innocent, melon-breasted girl. Why should a guy give a toss about things like feelings and impregnation - after all, they're just stupid hoebags if hey get all clingy after sexy time, and it's their fault if they get preggers.

Ryuuichi of Blue Flames infamy goes more down the Light Yagami path; not caring for the joys derived from sexy time. He's willing to enslave as many girls as it takes with his (presumably) massive penis in order to take over the world. Using and abusing hoebags is like breathing for manly man Ryuuichi. Put simply, he's like Light would be if he used vaginas instead of deadly pieces of paper to achieve his goals.

Note: those with the brains of squirrels may want to avoid these two. I'd hate to unintentionally offend anyone by recommending these titles.
Light and Ryuuichi share a lot in common: they're both sociopaths, they're both willing to use and discard women, they both view their families as expendable, and they're both more than willing to do anything to achieve their goals. They should be best friends, really.

Blue Flames is a lot more appealing to those lacking vaginas - that has to be said. Its story is about a guy sleeping with various woman, getting what he wants, and then moving on to his next target - not giving a damn about their feelings. It's captivating because so rarely does something show the true selfishness of humans, but it goes without saying that the ladies won't be best pleased seeing representations of their own gender getting deceived over and over/won over by the power of Ryuuichi's penis... Of course, it also goes without saying that they wouldn't mind so much if the story was about a woman tricking foolish men instead.

You probably won't like Ryuuichi very much, but - just like in the case of Light - you might still find yourself cheering him on order to see what nastiness he has up his sleeve next.
