Yuma and Hotaru have been friends since childhood, so it's only natural that when Yuma is nervous about her new boyfriend, she asks Hotaru for advice. But when Hotaru starts coming onto Yuma for what feels like more than just 'practice,' what does it mean...? With boyfriends in the foreground but a secret, passionate tryst in the background, will Yuma and Hotaru try to forget what happened between them or have they fallen into a trap of true love and betrayal?
The first thing you should know about Netsuzou TRap is that it's absolute trash.
If you still want to stick around, you should also know that it's pandering to the NTR fetish. For the insanely small percentage of anime fans that don't frequent hentai sites, "NTR", or "netorare", is the cuckold genre; some poor guy gets his girl stolen by someone who's usually insufferable.
Except this time, the guy is getting his cute girl stolen by another cute girl, causing me to have conflicting feelings. She's still a bit insufferable (though the story does try to justify her actions by implying she's going through some difficult stuff
herself), but the yuri scenes are great, and will likely be even better on a future BD release.
The art was pretty bad in the first episode, but has improved over time.
Netsuzou TRap regularly frustrates me, and yet I keep watching it, so I think it's doing its job. NTR fans will likely have a better time with it than I am.
Netsuzou TRap is In my opinion terrible, the art is good and the two girls have some depth to them but other than that I dislike this anime, The story is basically two girls in relationships cheating with one another.
I have never before despised an anime, I have disliked a few but I can say it has never got to the point of hatred but this anime seems to be the exception and as someone who enjoys romance anime's all I can advise to other people who like the romance genre is stay well clear from
p.s sorry if the review wasn't that good as I said this is my first ever review hopefully I can get better at writing them over time
Before this show came out, I had been a fan of the manga. The story isn’t particularly good, but good art and yuri is enough to keep me entertained. Luckily, this anime was released, giving me the opportunity to uncover the very poorly hidden flaws in the original story as well as directing and writing errors in the adaptation! As the manga progressed, I was actually kind of happy to see that there was a toxic relationship between Fujiwara and Hotaru. Granted, Fujiwara’s blank face immediately gives away that something is wrong, but regardless I was interested to see how they would turn
out. That is, until I started the first episode.
Once I saw that each episode of NTR would only be 9 minutes with about 2 minutes’ worth of opening and ending, I already knew that the anime would not give the manga what little justice is deserved. But with this terrible cast of characters, I don’t even think a full length show would help them. From the manga alone, I was well aware of the fact that Takeda and Yuma weren’t the most interesting characters, but it’s the anime that makes this very blatant. The only thing I’ve seen Takeda do is blush and look like the stereotypical male side character of a romance anime. Yuma has it even worse. Most of her lines are “Wh-what?! Hotaru!” and her only emotion is embarrassment. I’m honestly surprised that the two of them actually managed to be in a relationship. High schoolers or not the two of them lack romantic chemistry of any sorts and are only capable of blushing to one another.
When I complain about an anime, I rarely stray from talking about the story, characters, and uses of animation to tell a story. However, I feel like I would be committing a sin for not mentioning that some of the direction in this show is just jarring. My first complaint is that the opening doesn’t fit with this show in the slightest. I couldn’t care less about the pictures that go with it seeing that each time I see it, I’m distracted by the rock song playing. There’s no way to get around it either. If I were to mute the opening, I’d have to watch basically some moving stills for a minute and 30 seconds. The opening lacks much actual animation and tries to cover everything in effects and filters to give the illusion that something cool is happening. It doesn’t help that the ending is a textbook definition of putting the bare minimum of effort into something.
Aside from the opening and ending, the direction of the show at some points is just horrendous. I had to rewind some scenes several times just to understand what was happening. This may sound like an exaggeration so let me give two examples. From episode two, there is a scene where Hotaru pulls Yuma into a kiss from behind a bush so that somebody inside the school can’t see them too well. When Takeda calls for them from the school window, the animators portrayed the distance of the characters and their positions in relation to one another so poorly that I thought that Takeda was diagonal from the girls rather than above them. The second example has to be the most amateur thing I’ve ever seen in anime. From episode 2 again, Takeda shows up to Yuma’s classroom to ask about going to the amusement park during the weekend. Yuma thinks ‘I’m not ready’ and then THERE IS A FAST FADE AWAY AND THE QUARTET IS IN AN AMUSEMENT PARK. This scene actually made me do a double-take. If you choose to make episodes of a somewhat story driven anime to only have 6 minutes’ worth of content, at least get a director who can make decent transitions.
As stated earlier, I don’t like Takeda and Yuma due to their flat personalities, but it’s really Hotaru that disappoints me. Partially due to the rushed pace of the show, the changes of her mood are laughably fast. You blink and she’s sad. Then you blink again and she’s suddenly cheerful again. Also, I really don’t think they casted the right voice actor for this role. Her VA isn’t bad but sometimes her performances make Hotaru’s relationship with Fujiwara seem like it came out of a hentai. I am convinced that Fujiwara is not actually a character but rather a brick with a face painted on it that has up to 3 speaking lines per episode.
Despite my complaints, I do have some praise for the show. I’m happy that the yuri in this show is not diluted. The censoring matches the censoring of the manga. Instead of literally turning Yuma and Hotaru’s bodies into clouds *cough Love Stage cough* they actually depicted sexual scenes which is rare for any anime that focuses on a homosexual relationship that’s not a hentai.
My last problems are entirely revolving around the art and animation. I won’t lie, the art looks nice. Not anything at the levels of Kyoto Animation, but nice to look at. But there’s always a catch with this kind of show. Where art hardly makes up for the visuals, the animation can be dreadful. Most of the times it’s just decent but others it’s so funny looking I actually laughed. An example being towards the end of episode 4 where Hotaru is playing with Yuma’s chest while she talks to Takeda on the phone. Hotaru kinda shakes around and it honestly looks like they pulled the scene out of a Windows Movie Maker video.This scene also leads to my main issue with the art. Every character suffers from a severe case of same-face syndrome. If you were to take a shot each time you saw the SAME EXACT faces used for every expression, you’d be in the hospital getting your stomach pumped halfway through the fourth episode. Even so, EACH CHARACTER ONLY HAS A MAXIMUM OF THREE EMOTIONS: Default,embarrassed, and sad. Embarrassment is only shown with a blush which I can’t really complain about, but sadness is shown through the loss of a character’s pupils.
All in all, each episode of this show feels more like a trailer rather than an actual series. It looks like the staff wanted to quickly use whatever popularity NTR had, and pump out whatever they could to make a quick buck or two. Once again, another yuri show has left me disappointed. I can't believe anybody is actually watching this for the story so let me say, you’re better off watching some hentai.
First of all, why the fuck these girls look like Oregairu's Yukino and Yui, with their personality and boobs swapped. Secondly, the genre mentioned for this anime is Shoujo, which i feel for echhi/hentai lovers will be fantasy.
It was my first time watching an "Bisexual" anime.
First episode was just like "Tutorial : How to Kiss a Girl (for all genders)". The only best thing which i found was duration : 9 minutes ( including OP and Ending). Story has some direction but can't say it's positive or not. Character development wasn't tad bit of focused at all either.
This is only how i can rate this
anime up to this point. I'll update it later.
