I feel guilty and confused after watching R-15. I'm confused on why I feel guilty, and quite a bit more.

Story (7/10):
I'll give it this. The story had a unique plot, but it was combined with very unoriginal concepts. It need not stick to a very serious storyline, or it would have gone worse. Every time it does start to get serious, something would throw you off. I would say it was funny, but it couldn't get more than a snicker out of me.

Art (5/10):
It was average. Nothing to go on and on about, but still caught your eye as an ecchi tends to do. I read more

This anime isn't really worth watching.. It pretty boring in it own sense. The main character is unique in its own way. The only thing that may be of some interest to some viewers is probably the artwork because it is a harem and ecchi anime.

This anime doesn't have a storyline. There is no hook for you to continue watching. It just an typical anime that takes about how the male protagonist lives his daily life as a talented novel writer. Just that fact may sparkle some interest and the fact that he specializes in writing not romance, drama or action... but in porno!

R-15 is a show with a mediocre story, your usual art style, fantastic music with your usual harem characters (this is not a harem show). There are tons and I mean absolutely tons of panty shots and nose bleeds, so if you like that kind of stuff in large amounts, this is the show for you.

~Warning~ The very beginning of the show is very off-putting. It is something very unexpected and probably repels most people when they attempt to watch the show.

~Warning 2~ Do not watch this show unless you have downloaded or bought the Blue-Ray version. The censorship that I sat through was read more

Taketo Akutagawa - a genius creative writer whose speciality involves very erotic works, often experenences nose bleeds when sexually arouse, in love with Fukune Narukara, he’s also the schools newspaper writer and interviewer.

Fukune Narukara – a genius clarinetist, a very shy girl who doesn’t respond very easily, very much an introvert, she has feeling for Taketo to the point that in ep8 she didn’t mind changing in front on him. She values the clarinet which was given to her by her father.

Raika Meiki – a genius photographer, the only student who is excepted to wear the prescribe school uniform, has an fondness to take read more

Similar humor,both are random and funny :D, both have a touch of shonen ai between the main characters, similar art.
Both involve underaged teens working questionable jobs in the porn industry, with Koe de Oshigoto featuring a 16 year old girl as an eroge seiyuu, and R-15 featuring a 15 year old boy as a porn story writer. These cause humorous interaction between the main characters and their peers at school. Both also contain visuals of the main character's perverted imaginations, though Koe de Oshigoto's border on the verge of hentai, and R-15s barely qualifies as ecchi.
Both their schools are weird, are harem , and have many ecchi scenes here and there.
They both portray a harem theme. Isekai no seikishi monogatari is an amazing anime with almost an hour length per episode.

R-15 not the best harem, but you can watch it if there is nothing left to watch.
The main characters, Akito (Oni Ai) and Taketo (R-15), write erotic novels as their hobby and their unique talent.

They have similar humor and belong to the same genre: comedy, ecchi, romance, and harem.

They also have unique characters with different talents and personalities, and character and story developments are slow paced for both anime.
The stories are both set around individuals with abnormal talent. They both have lots of comedic relief... Well. I don't know why I'm reccomending this. I just am. Trust me.
