Ore ga Kanojo wo *su Wake is an OVA series by Suzuki Mirano. Before I get into this review, I'll state my opinion outright. This hentai is bad, both objectivly, and subjectively. After watching the final episode, I had an incredibly bitter taste in my mouth. However, I waited a bit to write this review.
The final episode had yet to be subbed into English, and my understanding of Japanese is... well... lacking. And there was a year long gap between episodes 4 and 5, so I wanted to refresh my memory. After binging the series, my outlook
on it softened somewhat. But I also found new problems, which we shall discuss.
What's the story for this OVA? Well, it's all about this whiney spoiled brat named Rinka, who runs away from home and crashes at her uncle's place. Her uncle happens to have a jealous crush on Rinka's mom (and he's most likely clinically insane), and by this point in my summery you can probably guess the whole story from here on out. Yep, it's NTR, or at least it would be. Instead, several episodes are spent on Rinka fucking around with her uncle (pun very much intended). Let's call these "filler episodes", because they're some of the most boring shlock I've ever sat through. Literally nothing of value happens. And when the plot actually picks up again, it's an absolute trainwreak. The story is worthless, and that's all there is to it.
The art/animation is the only decent aspect of this dumpster fire. It's by no means great, but it could be much worse. The art is pretty bland, and if you want to get the best out of it, watch it in HD. Because even the slightest downgrades make it look awful. It does have one redeeming quality (though not one to be proud of). The facial expressions look ridiculous, and I'm not sure I've ever laughed this much while watching a hentai. You have to see them in action to really understand. The animation is consistent though, which is good.
The voice actors do a fine job, at least for what they have to work with. Because the script is shit. The dialog is painfully bland, and some of it's just plain cringe-worthy!
The characters are awful. There's Rinka, who's an annoying brat and a bucket of wasted potential. Then there's Rinka's mom, and her only personality trait is that she's a whore. And not to mention Rinka's uncle, who I'm certain is a mass shooter waiting to happen. There's also Rinka's dad... and yeah, he does nothing. Rinka also gets it on with some other randos, but they're not important. As I hinted earlier, I think Rinka had some potential to be an interesting character, or at least have a satisfying arc. Early on It's established that Rinka has some sort of crush on her dad, and she pretty much betrays him for the rest of the story. But then she starts to realize that she's just being used by her uncle. I thought this plot point was going to be picked up again in the final episode, you know, to bring things full circle. But no. Instead we got a terrible ending, that spits in the face of anyone who gave a damn and though some effort might actually go into the story.
Overall, I didn't enjoy this OVA series. It had some relatively good scenes sprinkled throughout, but they were littered in a sea of mediocrity. I was bored through much of this, and it didn't offer much of anything good. I'm of the opinion that the final two episodes (which were released more than a year after the others) made the series even worse. All in all, this was pretty bad. 3.5/10
So, would I reccomend you watch this trash? Well, it's objectively bad, but you might still get something out of it if you're into NTR or rape. Otherwise, steer clear for the time being.
