A 3-month-old Pink Pineapple production with zero reviews that just got subtitled? Yeah, here we go!
Yamitsuki Pheromone is an adaptation of a manga, the manga in question is a bunch of one-shots compiled together. Because of this Yamitsuki Pheromone is multiple stories told across 2 episodes, and the first of which is about some unpopular kid getting into sensual situations with the hottest girl, trying to masturbate in the bathroom, being found by the most popular girl, and then having sex with her. The second story is about a not very well-behaved guy who really thinks the shy bookworm girl is cute. He confesses
to her and she reveals that she's a pervert, which then leads to sex. Episode 2 starts with a story about a guy and his childhood friend who doesn't want him to leave her for a job that he gets, they then have sex. The second story is about a tall guy and short girl and the short girl invites him to a hotel on their date, which leads to sex. Pretty standard fair for hentai.
Yamitsuki Pheromone is a Pink Pineapple production from this year (2021) and the animation was handled by studio Shion. The direction was handled by Toshihiro Watase, who is Shion's and BreakBottle's most prominent director. As for how the show looks... it's abysmal looking. The animation looks mediocre and sometimes the mouths of the characters don't even move when they talk. The art on the other hand is pretty good, it looks similar to the original manga by Herio, though I'm not sure who did the character designs.
There is a surprising lack of music in this show, majority of the show is just sound effects and talking/moaning. The voice acting is pretty good though, I guess.
It's just disappointing, some of the stories are actually really cute and fun, just the animation is abysmal and the stories last way too little. The show is mainly held back by the animation, which is very unfortunate. All in all I give this a 3/10, it's not the worst thing ever but it's by no means good.
