Long time ago, the Rindo family was cursed by a monster. Since then, new born babies have been girls. To break the curse, they had to marry persons of the Higetsu family who have strong spiritual power, and have to bear a child by the next red moon. Now, the curse befalls to Rindo Naoto. In order to break the curse, he has to beget a child with one of four sisters of the Higetsus.
So you're heir to rich and powerful family. Your fiance died in a car accident and you are expected to provide an off spring to carry on the family name. What are you do to? Why sleep with her sisters of course! Where do they come up with these plots?
Ringetsu the Animation comes off as a typical harem hentai with a slight supernatural twist. At the very center of the story is Naoto Rindo, the male protagonist engaging in a series of complicated relationships. There's a bit a of drama that's involved.
Naoto begins off having sex with the eldest sister Yuiko, who is married, by the way, to Masakazu... her own brother?! I guess it's revenge for being responsible the accident of Naoto's fiance (his younger sister). So anyways, a hint of NTR. After an unsuccessful attempt at pregnancy with Yuiko, Naoto moves in with the Higetsu family where the rest of the 3 sisters reside.
There's the 2nd oldest sister, Shino, who is dominant, proud, and tsundere type. She happens to also be a teacher at the school which Naoto and the two younger sisters are attending, so you know what's going down at school.
Then there's Ayumi, the 2nd youngest sister. She's just right in terms of personality. A shy, but friendly type that cooks, cleans, and makes your bento. Pretty much your perfect girl. I would say the bulk of the story revolves around the relationship of Naoto and Ayumi. But poor Ayumi always gets the raw end of the stick because she closely resembles her dead sister Suzume (Naoto's fiance).
The youngest sister is Mizuna. Your yandere loli type, who happens to be interested in sex ed and "toys".
Although Naoto is rich and handsome, he's some what of a dimwit when it comes to women. He breaks all the rules of sexual engagement.
Rule #1: Don't sneak into a girls room and grope her while she's sleeping hoping to have sex with her for the first time.
Rule #2: Don't call out different girl's name while your having sex.
Rule #3: Don't hallucinate while having sex.
Despite the protagonist being kind of weak, Ringetsu actually turns out pretty well as a hentai. All the characters are pretty. The sex scenes are lengthy with good animation. There are some repeating frames but none you would complain about. (i.e. fap material) It's also available uncensored which is always a plus. You get to empathize with the characters during the 3 part series. There are plenty of schoolgirl play: sailor suit uniform, bloomers, school mizugi, as well as dildos and hot shower scenes. All consensual sex, I might add, though at times, it's a bit painful to watch. But it all ends well for those who don't like guilty faps.
Once you get passed the whole "my girl is dead so I have to bang her sisters until one gets pregnant" aspect of this hentai, it's actually pretty pretty decent. I believe this anime would be best reviewed by character as each character basically has their own story.
Naoto is, for whatever reason, one of the best anime guys I've come across in a while. I don't know if it's his looks, dazed expressions or dominant personality in bed, but he's definitely very amiable. Of course he has his negatives like being unable to control his urges and "teaching" a young girl sex-ed, but what boy in this kind of anime doesn't have faults like that. Naoto's love for his late fiancee, Suzune as well as her sister, Ayumi, is extremely evident through the entire series. Despite being so promiscuous, he has a very innocent personality.
Ayumi is by far my favorite character of the series. She is the perfect girl. She's pretty, friendly, sweet, and a has very motherly qualities. I found myself feeling very bad for her whenever Naoto would call her by her sister's name because she really just wanted his full and undivided attention while they were making love. However, I do think the execution of the supernatural aspect could've been done better. I was really confused while watching on what was happening between Ayumi and Suzune's spirit.
The other two sisters, Shino and Yuiko are just fillers for the most part. Yuiko is married and it makes absolutely no sense why she would be the first to attempt to make a baby with Naoto when there's 3 other sisters. I found her scenes to be completely unnecessary. Shino, which is certainty the prettiest sister, has a slightly more relevant but equally as unnecessary role as Yuiko. She only has sex with Naoto one time by seduction while she was drunk and the scene seemed to only be thrown in there to show he banged all 4 sisters.
My least favorite character, Mizuna, probably shouldn't of even been involved in this whole baby business. She can't be any older than 13 and doesn't even know what sex is until Naoto "teaches" her and then she becomes obsessed with masturbation and sex toys. Her scenes were really uncomfortable, especially when she violently masturbates in the library for whatever reason. I found myself just skipping all the library scenes as they just looked pointless and awkward.
Not the best hentai out there, but certainly worth recommending. This hentai has a pretty decent attempt at a plotline and a happy ending. Although I would recommend just skipping the Mizuna scenes if you aren't into young girls to avoid feeling extremely uncomfortable. This version also is definitely better than Shin Ringestu by far. read more
