When Yuusuke awakens from a nightmare in which a demon warns him that women will be his downfall, he discovers that real life isn’t any better! Having a gynaecologist as a father, the poor boy is under pressure to overcome his irrational fear of women, and feisty twin sisters Yuka and Rika are on hand to give a helping hand. Using any method they can think of to seduce the red-faced boy, the racy competition soon heats up as busty Barako bounces onto the scene with an equal determination to seduce Yuusuke. Which of the horny heroines will win his heart, and more importantly, will he survive a non-stop onslaught of naked breasts, panties and bondage?
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.
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.
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.
To be honest, I only wanted to watch this because of a gif that I saw of a montage of strange and oddball things in the show. A snake made of breasts, girls with their faces where their crotches should be, lots of weird things. Unfortunately that all happened in the first five minutes, and after that it turns to a bland, disjointed near-hentai with bland characters, cliche situations, annoying voices and no resolution. All in all, it wasn't awful, but it was pretty bad.
The art: 6
Pretty standard for 90's shows, VHS quality, but still enjoyable
The version I watched was
very fuzzy, and cracked in a few placed, again, because of the age. Also, the voices were a bit high.
The characters were not only under developed, they also seemed to only care about sex, and had no other qualities. The main guy has a fear of girls, so that was interesting, but that's the only part of his character that was any different from a block of wood.
The jokes and old-anime feel were fun for the first episode, so yeah, I'd say I enjoyed it to an extent.
I just can't see myself rating this show any higher, especially after the second episode.
