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 ...

Mixed Feelings
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!

Preliminary (11/12 eps)
R-15 is pretty much an average if not slightly under average slice of life, school life, anime series which only excels in bringing a new level of Ecchi. The art is decent, characters are okay, story basically non-existant at times or quite weak. I typically at this point would go into more details about the series but that really about sums up this series unfortunately. I highly doubt that I will recommend this series, unless someone is really looking for some Ecchi school girl anime.

Rating 4/10
