If you want to enjoy Rescue Me!, take it for what it is. It's a combination of ecchi and comedy, and remains that way from beginning to end. Hell, even DURING the sex scenes there's elements of comedy. Watch it because you like tits and sexual humour.
There's not really much of a story, the whole thing is pretty random. Similarly, the jokes are also very random, nonsensical and most of all, sexual. At the end of the day they're a matter of personal preference, but at least you know what to expect.
It's only a one episode OVA so don't expect much character development, especially
considering what kind of anime this is. The art is pretty good (I'd give it a solid 7/10) and the music isn't anything special but it's not distracting and it works.
Overall, I'd give it a 6/10. Watch Rescue Me! for some quick laughs and anime boobies.
Rescue Me! is a single episode borderline-hentai OVA (meaning it shows everything except genitalia). The story is about as simple as you can get for an ecchi show: an average high school boy is surrounded by a harem of girls (well, one isn't actually after him aside from wanting to slit his throat).
The girls each fit into a specific archetype and aren't very creative (not saying they're necessarily bad, though):
- Busty female lead who takes care of the protagonist as his maid
- Underclassman who looks up to the previously mentioned busty girl
- Younger girl with a flat chest who calls the protagonist
- Yandere girl who likes the flat-chested girl and is jealous of the protagonist
The girls all have some physical characteristics that make them unique, though they don't serve much of a purpose other than to be included in the guy's harem. Still, the character designs are good and the animation overall actually very good aside from a couple shots that are used twice in a row.
Despite being borderline-hentai, there is no actual sex and the only "sex scenes" are the ones that are shown in the girls' imaginations. These are all pretty short which was a shame because they had potential to be great in ways other than to just make the viewer laugh for a little bit. Outside of the girls' imaginations, there are still plenty of breasts on display, but that's as far as it goes. There is a lot of comedy in this OVA (which is it's strongest point aside from the animation). It's mostly comedy based on accidents and misunderstandings (which usually annoy me in similar things like "To-Love Ru"), and while they are sometimes annoying in this, they can also be very funny.
Check this out if you just want a quick, funny, and very ecchi show. If you're looking for great plot/character development or if you're looking for something that shows "everything," then you should skip this. Rescue Me! has good animation and decent comedy, but it's bad in basically every other category (even compared to hentai).
First I should point out: This is something for those who are just in it for the ecchi and comedy. Anyone one else might as well GTFO lol.
From an Ecchi perspective- This OVA was a decent watch, Boobies everywhere, Harem being forced upon a guy, stuff like that.
The story for it isn't really a romantic one, nor a particularly good one, but more like something that was haphazard. I wouldn't say random however. In the end it did make sense which is where it should matter if you're in it for the ecchi. (I mean come on, even if you're only in it
for the ecchi a story that doesn't make sense is still a turn off)
From a comedic perspective- This OVA wasnt hilarious, but the humor was good nonetheless. Surprising moments that make you laugh, character behaviour that was outrageous or in other ways funny. Enough to make you at least chuckle.
The Sound was good and well accounted for in the correct "situations". The art was decent, Boobs could have used a little more work though (LMAO) but were decent. Of course being only one episode, the character development was poor, but I still give the character a thumbs up especially for a certain black haired character's introduction (no spoilers for you :P). I enjoyed as far as I can tell. Overall it was good.
Some anime just can't help but come close to crossing the border between anime and hentai. Rescue Me is one of those anime. I actually tried to watch it a few months ago, but I stopped about 5 minutes into it. After that, I kept trying to tell myself, "I'm not going to watch the whole thing." Boy, do I wish that I listened to myself!
Rescue Me is a one-episode OVA about a boy named Masayuki Mizutani. Apparently, his parents are out on vacation or something, so he is now living alone. At least, that's what he thinks. He walks into his house and is
suddenly greeted by a girl wearing nothing but an apron. This girl is Sayaka Shimizu, who is in the same grade as Mizutani, and she was hired by Mizutani's parents to be his maid. Insert ecchi situation after ecchi situation here.
The story of Rescue Me is practically non-existent. You would think that an OVA with one episode in it would have at least a bit of a plot, but nope! All there is in this OVA are scenes that would make you think that this is a hentai! Apparently, the female characters, especially Sayaka, think that this is a hentai, too. What I mean is that a lot of the ecchi moments come from the "imaginative" minds of the female characters (and even one male character). It's like all of the characters, except Mizutani, are perverts, and if EVERY character in an anime is a pervert, there's definitely a problem.
Well, at least the animation is decent. Rescue Me has some bright, rather colorful animation. The voice acting is rather decent, as well; while they don't do a great job, they don't do terribly, either. The opening theme is a cute song; not a good song at all, but certainly cute. As for the ending theme.... wait a minute, the opening and ending themes are the same song! Well, not that I mind that too much, since this is just an OVA.
Even so, Rescue Me is a less than enjoyable anime. Giving it a 4 is me being extremely generous; it actually deserves a 3 or something. If you like borderline-hentai anime, and ONLY if you like borderline-hentai anime, I'd tell you to watch this. I warn you, though; this anime, believe it or not, is actually worse than another borderline-hentai anime that I've watched and reviewed.
