Pain and pleasure. They are two sensory feelings that are central to the experience of living as a human being.

SHORT REVIEW FOR A SHORT MOVIE

STORY: 6/10
Kick-Heart is a story about "love", and BECAUSE they chose a love-themed anime,
they had to name the lovers Romeo & Juliet. Was that necessary? No, not at all. It doesn't even affect the story. The actual story is about Maki Romeo, a masochist who likes to take a beating. As soon as he meets a certain woman who can slap.. fast... that can... pleasure Maki, he wants to get beat up by her. That's it. Really. This story is about S&M. They lied to you about the love story part. Boom. This was also for 13+.

ART: 5/10

The animation quality is good, and it fits read more
