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!

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

Updated up to the final episode.

Having just finished R-15 completely, something I had doubts about since it was so perverted to the very end, I have to say I was pleased that it was enjoyable. The concept of "Genius" Porno Writer was able to carry its weight, never being censored in the slightest the entire series, his delusions and fantasies top notch the entire ride.

At first I thought this was just going to be random comedic absurdity, but after seeing episode two there might just be a story behind it all. With the protagnist possibly on a journey of self discovery. Then again read more
