This review is my first ever review and thus I only rate it based on enjoyment and other factors. This is all based on my opinion you can either accept it or not, read it or not read it :3
But now for this review :3
When I first watched this Anime I thought it was really bad but after rewatching it, it’s not so bad. It’s really amusing. >w<
I give the Story (4-5/10) because the story is about a protagonist who is scared of girls because something that happened in his past. His father invites two twin girls sisters to try curing his phobia. The first
episode is pretty much simple to understand where as the second episode was more random as if the creators wanted to try something entirely new.
I give the Art (6/10) because the animation was pretty much alright, I like the way they have contrasting colors for example in the first episode the girls was ginger haired whereas the second they are blond. Since this is an old OVA Anime you can instantly feel and recognize it in the art.
I give the Sound (5.5-6.5/10) because I actually enjoyed the background music that’s been used which gives me the older days feels. The Ending songs was pretty much average and I can’t think of a reason to listen those songs at all even if I was an adult in that time where this anime ova came out, I’m actually pretty curious about this anime’s background music if there is some kind of album lol.
I give the Character (6-7/10). Because I actually enjoyed the unique designs for the girls, I think the creator that made KissxSis got inspired by this anime OVA since the one girl named Rika had alot of common features with Rika from KissxSis, a coincidence? I don’t think so. Whereas the boy with phobia was pretty much average, he kind of was a bit irritating of me but I guess later he became ok. His father was pretty much disturbing to me, where the insane rich girl comes second but I guess the different personalities of those support characters gives a good grasp on how characters was made in the 90’s.
I give Enjoyment (6-7/10). This Anime OVA was pretty much fun to watch; my first time was pretty much disturbing but sometimes you just got to give something a second chance for better understanding it. My main criteria for loving an anime is a great story/plot and memorable unique characters with meaningful character development. This Anime had a lot of decent ratings in certain areas but the story was there where it lacked most, I might have been kind for giving it the rating I gave, I don’t know? But the Art/Animation, Sound/Music, and Characters made this worth a watch.
I had a lot of fun writing this review (since it was my first time), and since I’m rewatching some of my old completed Anime I might make more reviews. Writing this review also made me appreciate this Anime OVA more, since I personally thought this was to an overall rating of 5, but I changed my mind and give it 6 for its unique creativity, if I could read Japanese I would try giving the manga a chance, but I just must see in the future. :3
Overall Rating 6 - Good ^_^

So, this anime was something I decided to watch for no reason at all. I saw it and somehow expected something other than what it was.
Long story short, I only rated it as a 5/10 because it made me laugh. Other than being funny at times, this anime was awful but you can't expect much because it's a borderline hentai. There is a tiny bit of a story but that is mostly there to be funny.
1+2=Paradise features well basically everything in a typical ecchi and haremy type of anime. From its characters backstory relations to one another, to the current dense typed response the main protagonist expresses, it has everything that you've already know and love from a typical ecchi-genre'd anime.
Its story is easy and simple, nothing to extraordinary or makes it standout too much, but it does explain the situations the characters found themselves easily. Animation is dated, being created back in 1990, but it suits its time's general animations fairly well. The characters are all your typical characters you find in most ecchi, from
the clumsy one, to the over attached one, to the dense one and what not, all fairly well expressed to no sudden questionable character changes so character development is on its minimal.
Overall this anime can be enjoyable if you find ecchi typed anime's your thing, you can give this a shot why not, but to the general audience it can be a tad too much cliche' or "what in the world is going on?" moments will be said often.
Story (2.5/10) = The story is curious because of the main character phobia, but it doesn't get dipper. The anime ends up in some random way. I won't talk about the second episode because it's really random.
-Art (6/10) = The art is ok, nothing special, but it ins't bad, the colors and scenarios are pretty. I didn't like the proportions of the characters body, because they're a little strange.
-Sound (5.5/10) = The sound is ok as art, the voice are good, but it doesn't have special musics and the opening is very simple.
-Character (6/10) = Generic ecchi characters. The main character gets constrained easily and
gets in confusions with his sister. The two sisters (and a third personage in the second episode) like him, but otherwise to tell him, they just provokes him.
Enjoyment (7/10) = I had fun with it, but it wasn't too fun as other ecchi/harem series.
Liked: The ecchi stuff, like scenes.
Total (5.4/10) = In the end it isn't special, it's just a generic ecchi anime, but with you like and have fun with ecchi like I do, you should watch it.
