Ok, so hentai-eers will know of PoRO's reputation. They make high-budget hentai, with generally above-parr animation. Examples are Oni Chichi and Fukubiki Triangle. Another trait this studio tends to have is that the hentai they make is infamously pretty soulless. Hollow characters and a basically non-existent story are things that tend to come with the PoRO package. This show is a perfect example of a hentai i would describe as being soulless- not just because of the rape. Shows like Euphoria and Gakuen de Jikan yo Tomare are examples of shows that centre around rape and yet have a lot of character to them, proving that this genre can create good characters and stories.
Soulless porn is not necessarily bad porn; you just can't expect it to be anything above "good" since soulless things tend to be very forgettable, just like Fukubiki Triangle.
Story is very generic. A guy fancies his teacher and so decides the best course of action is to rape her into submission. It's like that olden goldie called "Depravity", except instead of the teacher being the resident badass, she's a helpless loli. Now, I have seen more brutal rape hentai. Chains of lust and Black Widow are definitely in the same dark rape genre that this is- and what makes these series dark compared to ones like the aforementioned Gakuen de Jikan yo Tomare is that in those shows, the girls seem to get some pleasure out of it. Not in this one. All the dialogue is about how she doesn't want to be raped; she has yet to be "broken" or whatever. Its pretty brutal, with blood and everything, and at the same time doesn't manage to leave a mark in my brain- its forgettable.
PoRO's biggest plus is their tasty budgets, and this title did not disappoint in that department. transitions and animation loops were noticeable but smooth in general, and details to the female characters design were nice, like white stockings and a frilly dress. That shit is a pain in the ass to draw and animate, so kudos.
Characters were the worst aspect of this, but it wont affect most people. I feel like the kind of people who seek out this kind of genre instead of stumbling on them occasionally like I did probably don't care about how likeable characters are in their porn. Therefore, I'll keep this snappy. The guy is a cut-out protag and (surprise surprise) his bangs cover his eyes. The teacher is a whiny rape victim. I'm a terrible person for saying that.
The enjoyment is a difficult one, because this is really not my thing. Like, BDSM and stuff is only cool in my book if both parties are into it, call me old-fashioned. I just couldn't thoroughly enjoy this. It is definitely watchable, but twice? Nah, dude. Also, pee stuff? Not my cup of tea.
I feel like this series is way too confined to who will enjoy it. Like, first you must be ok with rape, then you have to be ok with pee stuff, then you have to be ok with her screaming that she hates it all the time- it's just too much! Too many filters. Of all the people I know in my life, I can only think of one person who liked this kind of hentai and, just between us, he was kind of a psycho.
I think it's a bad sign if your porn can be used to gain similar results to that of an ink blot test.

The show consists of pretty basic stuff mostly, especially episode 2. Initially gave this one a 6 after watching the first ep then I gave it a 7 after seeing the second. I'll get to the reasons as to why in a bit so here I go.
* The character designs. Both the teachers shown so far are pretty great design-wise especially Maki (the one in the second episode). The MC though is pretty much the generic bangs over the face with a really overpowering demeanor, which is alright I guess.
* The art and animation. If the guys at the studio know anything, it's animating scenes well. They're pretty well made and the scenes are good too. Pretty consistent quality all throughout the show.
* Takamine Miyu. Ok personal nitpick time, her VA is pretty bad. It wouldn't have mattered much if she wasn't getting raped for most of her scenes where she screams a lot, but it was pretty ear-piercing for me. She's really cute though, can't deny that.
Things that might turn you off:
Peeing (just at the end of ep1)
If there's anything I'm thankful for, it's that Miyu immediately leaves after a couple minutes at the start of ep2, which made it a lot easier for me to enjoy the show especially with the introduction of Maki. The show is pretty basic for the most part, plot-wise and scene-wise but the animation is great. Don't let my minor nitpick deny you from checking out the show, because it's definitely worth checking out for the good animations, great character designs and yeah, just enjoy it.
