Temptation is not a show for fans of the happy/concensual) hentai genre. The subgenres that are not listed in the genre section of the page are RAPE, BONDAGE, BLACKMAIL, YURI and CATGIRLS.
At first glance, Temptation looks like your standard blackmail hentai. Main character gets caught doing something he shouldnt and is forced to do something for another person or face the consequences. fairly straight foreward right? WRONG. Temptation has that in its plot but there is a strong ROMANCE subplot. "But i thought you said it wansn't for fans of happy/concensual hentai." You're right, but i cant explain why the series is unhappy without giving away a massive spoiler.
The art in Temptation is very well done. The series has little in the way of looping and the director utilises all the standard viewing angles as well as pulling off some unusual methods that I have yet to see elsewhere(first 2-3 min of episode 2 are the best examples). The drawing is crisp and colorful and the animation is smooth andfor the mostpart(i cant stress this enough) loop free.
The sound effects in Temptation are convincing and well synched. the voice acting is synched to the movement of the mouths and sound is never looped. There is a distinct lack of a musical score which is made most noticable at the finale of episode 2. Its subtle appearance changes the entire mood of the final scene.
