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

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

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!

First of all, this anime is pretty much average in a sense that it's not that great and it's not that terrible. People would often find this dull because of poor story and character development but can easily catch up because of the art and characters.

Story --- 5
The story is below aveage where the main character struggles because of his hobby/talent in which the majority thinks it's offensive. There are also parts in the story in which it doesn't make any sense at all and we can hardly notice the story development. All in all, I rate it pretty much a 5.

Art --- 9

Anime: Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu

Anime: Maken-Ki!
Both their schools are weird, are harem , and have many ecchi scenes here and there. 
reportRecommended by TrOjAnHoRsE
Anime: Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari
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.

Anime: High School DxD
A male lead surrounded by big tittied high school girls. These anime will not challenge your mind or offer any worthwhile experience. However, breast and panty shots galore await you.

Anime: Onii-chan dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo ne!
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.

Anime: Special A
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.
