You guys ever watch Takt.OP?,A show that deemed to be a “waifu bait’’.now hear me out,that anime is not 100% a waifu bait.This one however,absolutely DOES.
But the question is,is Engage kiss a good waifu bait?
From the latest episode I could say it actually does…kinda.
The story starts very very straight to the point,not like Takt.OP that basically trynna introduce the concept behind the entire origins and concept of the anime,Engage kiss straight up shows us a young boy with a young girl live in the same room and acts like a married couple,this is also a reason why I said Takt.OP is not 100% a
waifu bait while this one actually does,in Takt OP,the anime doesn’t instantly encourage us to like Destiny or Anna but rather make us grow fond to them as the story progress cause in the beginning we don’t even know exactly what kind of person Destiny is,Engage kiss in the other hand quickly encourage us to like and love the heroine by showing that she good at cooking,doesn’t afraid to get naked (if only that towel or blanket doesn’t cover her in the first episode) and basically any other criteria that makes her a “waifu” which is the main selling point of this anime.
The other aspect that also make this anime a fully waifu bait is the fact that the writer decide to give us a fanservice scene where the two MC have a very wet kiss to somehow refill the heroine powers and solidify that this indeed a waifu bait,I mean I don’t dislike it but first episode? Wow,that kiss belongs to some echhi anime.
The story is also very simple and easy to understand,it’s even easier to understand than the dialog between character.There’s a demon and there’s an organization that kill demon,kill the demon,saves the world.Sounds familiar ? yeah cause it is indeed similar to Takt.OP and other hundreds animes as well,but originality never matters to me.So is the story interesting ? yes,eventhough the repeated concept of story is quite boring for some people,I do found the concept of demons in this anime quite interesting,cause instead of using the “IT CAME FROM THE SKY’ tropes it decides to pull Kamen Rider Revice’s Inner demon and possessed by demon concept which I absolutely prefer.
The Character that plays the most important part for me also made very well,despite the overused design that appeared which is very understandable,I still grow very fond of them.
Ayano looks like Mona from Genshin Impact and any other anime chara with that kind of hairstyle
Kisara looks like a combination of Kaos Moeta from Comic Girls,Yuno Gasai from Yume Nikki and that damned Yandere girl from Happy Sugar Life which by the way not happy at all,and what more surprising is the fact that Kisara also have some Yandere side as well.Pink haired anime girl really terrifying these days huh.
Shuu which is our male lead is basically the combination of Naofumi from shield hero and basically any other basic anime MC with a personality of a less boring and less dramatic version of Kimihiko from Tantei wa Mou Shindeiru.
The female MCs are very interesting and it’s obvious since they’re the main selling point.
The writer decide to make our male MC a smokers and if the purpose of making him a smoker is to make him look cooler than the writer failed miserably,it’s infact doesn’t make him looks cooler,it just make him looks like my jobless uncle.
This anime is not recommended if you are the type of person that easily bored and likes a heavy story anime,not really recommended to people that already watch Takt OP since the story is pretty much the same with less drama and more lewd but if you wanna watch it still,im not gonna stop you.
Very recommended to people that can like a show just cause a single character like me,also recommended to people that likes watching a ‘’lewd-ish” couple action…like me.
9/10 if they add even more fanservice.
A very good waifu bait anime,wouldn’t surprise if they make a mobile game out of it just like it’s predecessor which by the way haven’t release even after roughly 7 months of the day it last airing.
