Asa & Natsume are both in love with Hajime Saisho. Instead of fighting over him, they both promised to share him equally. However, both girls have to leave him by the end of the summer. As the summer days go by, they each spend their precious time with Hajime, while the day of their fated departure draws near.
Sora no Iro, Mizu no Iro is a Hentai, Romance and another one of Tony Taka’s creations. So you can expect a decent set-up and excellent character designs, in this above average hentai.
There isn’t really much to the story, it is just about your typical teenage boy (Hajime Saisho) who’s a member of the school swim team. Well a new transfer student (Asa Mizushima) catches Hajime’s attention and he pursues her affection until she eventually falls in love with him. But that’s not all, as there’s another girl (Natsume Sorayama) who likes him. Sure with that you usually expect the girls to fight over him, in a heated love triangle, but instead they decide to share him. Now I thought it was pretty senseless, the way the two of them came to the decision to share him, but it’s a hentai so it can be forgiven. So why is it so good? Well the answer to that question falls within the characters and animation.
Hajime is a pretty cool protagonist, seeing how he’s not a creep or a loser and I also realized that his name sounds rather interesting “Beginning” and “End” (not sure if the kanji meaning is different). Nevertheless it’s the girls who truly shine in this hentai and it is interesting seeing the differences they have and I’m not just talking about their different sizes. Though the characters do lack some development, especially Natsume, because we never know the reason why she liked him in the first place.
When it comes to the animation, it’s no surprise that I declare it as the strongest aspect, because not only do the characters look great but so do the summer themed environments. Not to forget that a lot of detail is put into the non-recycled sex scenes, which seem to dominate the series. Shame I can’t say the same positive things about the sounds and sure the seiyuus did do a great job on the main characters, the music is fairly unnoticeable until in gets to the insert songs.
Overall Sora no Iro, Mizu no Iro is certainly one hot hentai anime, a bit too hot for words in fact. There are a lot of similar school-based hentai out there but this stands out as one of the better ones. I just wished it was longer, to allow further development with the characters.
This is certainly a very interesting hentai, to say the least. The synopsis is a bit misleading towards the quality of the story, but if you like "artwork" then you'll love this.
Story: The story is pretty typical of a hentai anime: there isn't much of one. It does get points for differentiating a little(two girls in love with one guy, they decide to share him), but the fact that the sex scenes are so awkwardly and illogically placed totally kills it. Granted, the scenes themselves were FAR from bad, but as far as story material goes, it wasn't very good. It gets another point for the end, which was kind of touching. I couldn't understand(no subs, don't speak japanese), but the girls looked happy and I like to think they were talking about something besides penis. 3/10
Art/Sound: The art and sound were nothing short of incredible. The sex scenes were incredibly well detailed, the sound effects were good, and they were very steamy overall. There's not much else to say besides that. 10/10 for both.
Character: The characters were alright. The two girls were very likable and innocent (they both love the same guy, so much so that they're willing to share him), but, much like with the story, the fact that the guy seemed to not give a crap and just seemed to screw them indiscriminately killed the likability of the characters. 5/10
Enjoyment: Pretty enjoyable. The sex scenes were, of course, immaculate, but the outward display of douchebaggery and the main male's zeal to have sex everywhere brought this one down a bit, too. 8/10
Overall: Overall, this was a decent hentai. If you like straight up sex, then you'll love this, but if you want anything beyond the MOST BASIC LEVEL of romance, then you're going to be disappointed. 6/10
