The protagonist lives alone in an apartment owned by his uncle and lives a carefree school life. One spring day, his uncle can't stand seeing him confining himself in his room any more and tells him to go out and find love while he is still young; however, he doesn't have any experience with girls nor does he have anyone that he's interested in.
I have to start this review by saying that the art for this is very good. Like, amazing for a hentai. The rest is quite standard fare, except for the second sex scene in the picture booth, that was original and quite well executed. I really found it challenging to think of what score this one should get. The whole thing is really beautiful to look at, and yet the story kind of fell flat to me. I enjoyed it a lot, don't get me wrong, but I felt it was really lacking... something. It wasn't incomplete or dissatisfying, it just felt a bit... empty. But, as you can tell from my overall score, this is a very minor quibble that probably only bothered me because I'm a bit weird with things like that. Seriously, this show was pretty awesome. I was pleasantly surprised by it's coolness.
I was sieving through titles of hentai on the website I use to stream it. Since they are nearly all in roumaji, I often judge them by the cover art that is displayed next to the name since my Japanese isn't up to scratch. By which I mean it's shit. Everything else was in pink or red, with a girl on the cover bending over or spreading her legs. Then I saw LCs blue theme and detailed, pretty character designs. It reminds me of the art of "We Without Wings", which I really enjoyed. So I gave it a go, and I'm glad I did. Quite a diamond in the rough here, since a lot of the new releases of hentai have been really crap, with nasty orcs and old men and torture. Yuck. I'm glad this one's here to show those weirdos how it's done.
Story is very standard fare for the most part. I liked how (kind of) original the first story was. The two characters pretend to be dating in order to scare off a pervy guy that was bothering the girl, but eventually our protagonist guy can't hold back any longer and ends up confessing to her. They agree to have sex and it's done in a very lovey-dovey cute way, with music in the background and everything. It's very vanilla. I think that the second scene is where the story shines, though. We have a tsundere and (I assume) the same guy from before. They are in a game arcade and end up having smexy smex in the photo booth. Dirty photos included. This one was very "Oh my God I have to have you now, you sexy beast!" and I think it was done very well. I think it's totally up to the person's taste as to which scene is best, since they are both obviously catering to very different audiences. The scenes were good, but there was no real overarching story, especially in the second section.
Art. Oh my God, the art. It's amazing. To date, I haven't seen a hentai with animation and character designs this professional and solid. It almost matches the quality of a normal anime. Almost. The girl's bodies look beautiful, and this is coming from another girl. They both have this lighting effect on them during the sex scenes which makes them look smooth and almost as it they're glowing. It's really memorable and makes this anime stand out from all the others. You can see the light reflecting off of their skin, making it look healthy and shiny. I really loved it! The character designs are quite unique and I especially liked the difference in eye shapes between the two girls. The romantic girl having round, kind eyes and the tsundere girl having more narrow, cat-like eyes. There is a lovely attention to detail throughout the hentai, with lots of shadows and creases in people's clothes, which was nice. The animation definitely deserves a mention too. Hentai-eers will know all too well the animation loops that jump back to the beginning clumsily and are out of proportion, sometimes to a distracting degree. Not this one. It is animated fluidly and, while it does loop animations like all hentai does to save money, the quality was so good and the animation was so solid that I often found that i couldn't pinpoint when the animation was looping because it flowed amazingly. I have never seen anything this beautiful in a hentai, except maybe for the artstyle in "Garden" because that was amazing. I am an artist myself, so I notice these things. The art is outstanding.
The voice actors don't stand out much except for the VA of the second girl, Aya. Her sex noises are pretty awesome, and I was glad to hear her dialogue being a bit different from the usual, because it's a lot of the same in hentai, isn't it? "Sugoi... ookii!" "Kimochii..." "Boku mou..." Are some examples of things we hear in every hentai ever. I was happy to hear some new stuff in this one! I only noticed the music during the first sex scene, which was all romantic and sweet. It didn't stand out much, just like most music used in hentai.
Characters are very meh. You have 1) Moe moe kyun!~ and 2) Tsundere turned helpless via sex. They were both done at least averagely well, with the second one just about tipping the scales for the originality and hotness. "Tsundere Inran Shoujo Sukumi", take notes! This is how you do tsundere girls in hentai! There seems to be a trend creeping in. This trend is guy protagonists in hentai having hair completely covering their eyes to make them plainer and prevent putting other guys off. I'm still not sure if I like it or not. Other examples of it are "Renai Fuyou Gakuha" and "Oppai Gakuen Marching Band Bu!". But our main guy here is very plain, just there to be the penis which comes attached to a person. I still liked him though because he is good-looking and isn't a complete asshat like other protagonists in hentai. Minase from Bible Black... I'm looking at you. Overall, the characters were decent, maybe just above average since they had traits and were likeable in the end.
The sex scenes were hot, it looked beautiful and I enjoyed watching this brand new series. It takes you for a spin, often switching to POV shots both in the sex scenes and in the story sections. It almost feels like a visual novel at some points. When it comes to story and characters, it kind of falls down, but what hentai doesn't? (Bible Black, maybe. That had solid characters and a kick-ass story) It does feel a bit same-old, same-old, but the quality of animation steps that the fuck up and makes it different and memorable. I immensely enjoyed this newbie, and if hentai can carry this torch and end up all being to this standard of quality, then I'll be a proud hentai-eer until the day I die. This gets an 8 out of 10, losing points for weak story and characters. Please watch this for the eyegasm that is the artstyle. It's pretty damn awesome.read more
