Having attended Mihama Academy for about a year, Yuuji Kazami has seemingly found his place within the school, but he suddenly decides to pursue a promotion in CIRS. After consulting JB about his intentions, they both thoroughly examine Yuuji's documents and dissect the events of his upbringing to determine if the job is fit for him.

Meanwhile, unbeknownst to the two, the girls of Mihama uncover some torn documents in Yuuji's room. After restoring the papers, they discover the story that has formed—or perhaps broken—Yuuji into the man he is today. However, what was thought to be history has haunted him to the present, and the chains of the past begin to drag him back into the darkness...

The parent to this prequel is Grisaia no Kajitsu, I thought it was good but there could of been some serious improvement. At first I felt Grisaia no Meikyuu was going to be the same, an unnecessary attachment to the series HOWEVER, I was proven wrong and proven wrong very strongly.

There was so much character development and I felt there was so much more value to the main character then ever. I really understand all who, what, where, when.

I was shockingly impressed by this prequel and I would suggest to anyone who watched Grisaia no Kajitsu to give Grisaia no Meikyuu a chance, you won't ...

Mixed Feelings
I normally don't write reviews for single episode shows that are just part of a larger series, but I'll make an exception here since I do have a few things to say about this. So what is it that compels me to write about what is essentially just episode one of the sequel show? Well...

- Story & Theme
One criticism I had about the first series was that it didn't really focus a lot on the protagonist and this time around it's the opposite. This is the big backstory episode where you get to learn all about Yuuji Kazami and who he is. The problem is ...

Backstory for the MC, this one starts strong, but quickly decides it's going to give him the most disturbing backstory it can, and then it loses me. The show goes out of its way to add reasons for him to be traumatized, and while I like good suffering in my MCs, this one just felt absurd. All I could think was that there's no way he comes out of this being any kind of OK, and frankly, it still doesn't make sense. I have a better opinion of it now that I've seen S2 because it at least gave more context for it, but I ...
