Main Characters: Amemiya Akira and Kaname
Story: 8 - the story revolves around Akira - a beautiful, self-centered boy who thinks and acts like he is God's gift to women. He goes around screwing girls and he does not even care or show any emotions. In the series, it is said that Akira goes both ways, though we only see him having sex with girls - and maybe 1 guy at the beginning but this was not shown. He has this "sister complex" and he constantly says that he will only love 1 woman.
Art: 9 - the art was beautiful. When they said that Akira was beautiful - they meant it. Kaname was very pretty too as well as the other cast. This anime was made in the 90's and the way they depicted the scenes was very different, it was refreshing. The H-scenes were tastefully done and were artistic (for me). Scenes were not vulgar or explicit at all, not like the new hentai.
Sound/Character: 8 - sound was just right and the female voices were not annoying. The ending song had a sweet sound to it and complimented the scene very well. Character development was there and I did not see any loopholes or anything. I think the creators were able to do each one of them some justice.
Enjoyment: 8 - I think this is the best hentai series I've seen so far - when it comes to story. I know that a lot of people might hate Akira for being an a-hole but I actually pitied the poor guy. I cannot even blame him for being how he is. He has a lot of issues and having a past like that can really mess up your head. He might be acting all high and mighty but deep down he is just someone looking for love, fulfillment and maybe acceptance. I also liked the ending since I think everyone got what they wanted and deserved (kinda).
Very highly recommended if you like beautifully drawn anime, soft-core hentai, a little love story and an intriguing storyline.
