This title focuses on the story, which is your typical lighthearted soap opera: people dealing with their relationships’ highs and lows. As in a lot of other anime about love, characters are awkward or shy in presence of their love interests and don't have much of a personality. But there is nothing innovative or emotionally rich in this one, so the story was rather boring to me.
The art in general is not ugly for a 1999 title but isn’t good either. Only breasts I’d say are actually decently drawn and animated.
I couldn’t take the English dub seriously because some of the voices sound quite silly.
The Japanese dub was okay.
A few scenes that feature nudity are void of any sexual context. The sex scenes themselves are brief and involve more foreplay than intercourse.
The characters’ genitals are very simply drawn: a handful of pencil lines and skin color.
Features consensual and typical sex acts only although one of the couple has more of a master/slave relationship, a few cumshots, a paizuri scene and vibrators.
Overall I found Charm Point to be bland and clichéd. I suppose it could be an okay introduction to hentai anime for those who never watched any and who don’t want to see too much focus on sex or extreme fetishes, but it is a forgettable title. I wouldn’t compare it to Sexfriend at all.
