This is my first hentai review and I thought that I shouldn’t restrict myself just to write about none-hentai anime’s, and try to gain experience in both kinds of anime.
The story starts in a local convenience store, where an 8 years old girl named Manami is having trouble deciding, what sweet stuff she should buy, while a boy is closely observing her since he finds her cute. She stops concentrating on her sweets, when she sees the boy is picking a chips bag without any
trouble, which makes her envy. The boy, offers her to buy something for her which she gladly accepts, making them friends instantly. After when they eat together on a rooftop, the boy discovers, that she is really innocent and naive. The girl touches the boy without any trouble, which only makes the boy more interested in her. The next day, she has trouble buying something again, this time it’s a product that costs about 300 yen, where she thinks it’s too expensive, where in fact it’s pretty cheap for the boy. He agrees to buy it for her, in exchange for a favor, making it look like it was a big deal, the girl agrees happily. And thus their 300 yen relationship begins, with the boy buying everything for the girl for about 300 yen in exchange for sexual favors.
The story itself was pretty average, simple to understand and predictable, since you can pretty much guess what is going to happen in just the first two minutes, if we assume you didn’t know the title or anime cover… The story of the anime wasn’t boring but it wasn’t interesting either. The ending of the anime was an open one.
I like the way, the anime characters has been drawn and animated. The girl has been drawn to look really cute, and the boy’s design is well drawn too. I like very much, how the anime characters reactions is used, when they blush or is excited. I really like the scenes, when the girl is smiling, there is backgrounds showing flowers or hearts to intensify the happy moment, which makes her even more innocent looking and cute. The sexual scenes with the girl and boy, is also well drawn and animated, making it look more erotic without the girl losing her cuteness.
The scenery is also well drawn and animated, but I don’t like how the product is being colored, like they just made effort in coloring some scenes where the rest is just lazy noticeable sloppy work.
The voice acting of the characters is fine in terms of, when they are talking and reacting to the point when the sexual scenes is happening.
I like how the anime creators is using the music to fit the anime, whenever there is a moment, when for example, the girl is having a moment when she is cute, cute music is being played in the background or every day music is being used. When the scenes gets erotic, the music changes to something fitting and when it gets even more serious, the music changes as well to something more serious. So the voice acting and the usage of music is very good.
The characters in the anime is pretty flat. There is no background stories and the only thing we get to know about the girl, is her name and her age which is 8 years old. As for the boy, we can assume, he is either a teenager or a young adult, since he treats Manami as a kid with her childish nature. Also important to point out is, that the point of view we are following is the main male character. That’s why we are hearing his thoughts in the anime. At the end of the anime, their personalities is still the same which the only thing that has changed for them is their relationship and the sexual experiences.
Since this was my first hentai, I enjoyed watching it. I think the only people who will watch this anime is those, that is interested in hentai or just want to watch something different than just anime. I’m not planning on rewatching this anime ova again at least I think so, but I think it’s worth at least a watch especially if you are into hentai.
Despite the average story and the boring characters, I enjoyed how the characters was designed, and how they showed the characters reactions and innocence especially the girl’s through clever backgrounds.
The simple sub-realistic environment was also well drawn, and it’s a nice touch having real life products in the convenience store, since I noticed Nesquik, Cheerios and Precky (Pocky) etc.
The voice acting was also good and did bring in emotions from the characters, the girl’s voice actor did a good job. The music that was used, to fit scenes with the characters and actions, was probably the best things with the anime alongside the art which I enjoyed.
From the title to the ending there was a lot of good content. For starts the title was a clear indicator of what was to come. While both main characters lacked in background stories the animation presented a plausible outcome. Not only that but both sides appeared to be in favor of the outcome and not just for the benefits they would be reaping.
In terms of the art i was both shocked and amused. Most likely not the way you are thinking you dirty minded folks. I mean mainly the scenery or background if you will. The setting is a
common group outlet(not being precise on purpose to avoid spoilers). That in mind one is bound to see certain familiar products that one may have familiarized with before. Given how popular each product is and how wealthy the owner(s) pockets are most likely would have applied some heavy scrutiny on the piece. For its potential unauthorized use in a rather damaging environment. If you look closely to each individual element on the background you can see from how clear each one is what product did or did not care about its image. Which to me silently says a lot about the company. As for those that did not make the cut or were not approved the artist was rather clever. Rather than going with something else just did a massive zoom in on the original image and stretch it out. Doing so makes the product know only to those who have been a heavy user in the past. At the same allows the artist/writers to continue with their original plan without much in change.
Also, the artwork was wonderfully portrayed in a matter that allowed somewhat crisp or detailed outlook while at the same time subconsciously the audiences eyes to the main focus objects.
