I have never understood why people become triggered when they claim an anime or hentai took a nose dive or ruined its story in some way. After watching this, I think I understand it a bit better.
Story: Simple premise: a girl confesses to a guy, but the guy rejects her. Takes a turn when the girl blackmails the guy with a picture of him bound and gagged, turning him into her sex slave.
At first, while a bit off putting with the blackmail, the story was a bit interesting in exploring a master/slave or femdom relationship. In the first episode, it explored and showed how that
kind of relationship is like and, in the end, showed that both were genuinely happy about their relationship being as it was. However, in the second episode, it took a complete twist on it and turning the story into something else entirely.
(Spoiler: if you wish to avoid, stop reading now)
The girl wants the guys absolute loyalty, so he calls for two guys assistance to give them sexual favors while the guy watches, but it takes a turn for the worse when the guys rape her in front of the guy, then blames and rapes the man.
The first episode showed how the relationship between a master and slave could be and had done so in a sort of vanilla way, despite the blackmail. In fact, I found it very interesting on how it was done so and to learn how their relationship would grow. However, the second episode completely turned it around and turned it into an NTR, gangbang rape. I understand how some slave/master relationships demand complete obedience, but this sort of change from a somewhat vanilla relationship turning into something more darker completely turned me off and made me genuinely start to be disinterested in this kind of relationship. If the story had stayed vanilla or darker, that would be one thing, but to start off as one thing and end off as nothing is completely blindsided and poorly inputted appropriately. In conclusion, despite the somewhat nice start at the beginning, it completely turned the story away from it in the next episode. Though it did at the very least explain a relationship for a slave/master, all be it, not as accurately. 2/5
Music: I don't really remember any of the music played during the first episode. For the second episode, it definitely added to the atmosphere of the rape/NTR tag. 2/5
Animation: The characters, environments, and play on sexual scenes were quite on spot. The characters were very attractive, the lighting and shading of the environments were done well to reveal the more eroticism of the scenes, and the sexual acts were drawn very well. The emotion played on each character, the teasing and atmosphere of the acts done, were all shown animated very well and hardly required much in terms of improvement, having no repeats or errors. 4.3/5
True to genre: Being two different episodes, the genre tags definitely changed. For one, it had femdom, footjob, masturbation, creampie, and vanilla. For two, it turned to reverse rape, NTR, gangband, anal, handjob, rape, and creampie. While each episode played the tags well, the fact they changed the tags for each episode may have thrown off any viewers for those expecting similar tags to episode two or wanted one to have similar tags to episode two and become a bit more darker. While one or the other may be good on their own, to have two episodes with nearly opposite tags in the same series is misplayed. 2/5
Eroticism: In the first episode, despite the blackmail, I actually found the story to be a bit erotic. I don't consider myself to be obediently submissive for sexual acts to be done to me, nor the opposite of being the master, but I have always found a woman taking the lead to be quite attractive. However, for the second episode, I found displeasure and disgust. As stated in my profile, unless it adds to a good story, I despise rape, NTR, and other tags, and these tags didn't add to make a good story. Only made me regret finishing the next episode. 1/5
Concluding my review: the show tried to show the aspect of a slave/master relationship in two lights from a genuine acceptance to a twist of rape and betrayal. Personally, if the story had stayed one way, sweet and genuine or dark and lustful, it would've been a good hentai series, but to add both threw me off of the show and, to my personal experience, was very distasteful when I had completed it. Two flavors may be great on their own, but adding them together may create an unexpected result. And sometimes, that isn't a good thing.
