There was a time back in the golden age of anime... where Hentai and visual novel authors actually put effort into making something original and decent "porn with plot", intead of imitating and using the same formula over and over again.
It was in the 1990s and early 2000;
SeeIn Ao is one of them. This 'hentai', if we could call it that, feels more like an R-rated drama love story than an actual hentai. Episode one actually looked hentai ish on the sex scenes but episode 2 looked more like borderline hentai/soft porn. I say this because episode one actually showed genitals while episode 2
it was done with little glances; and they empathized more on the drama than the actual sex scenes.
SeeIn AO has two arcs done by same episode and yes, both do connect.
The Male protagonist is Kyoya, a guy who left his home town after graduating from marine biology and joined the research faculty located on a remote island-city.
First episode/Arc centers around Miyu and Yumi, two supposed twins sisters that went orphan after their parents died in 'an accident'.
Miyu has a crush on Kyoya after he saves her life from drowning and Yumi helps her sister, which she adores and devotes to, realize her love... but Yumi has a deep secret that Miyu does not know...
Second episode/Arc, we dive in into Kyoya's past and the reason why he left his family. His little sister, who is actually his step sister after their parents remarried, came to stay with him after their mother was moving for reasons i dont remember. But the real reason is that Yui, the little sister, wanted to be with her big brother to help him heal after their long lost; and wanting to declare her love for him in the process telling him that he is not alone in carrying the heavy burden about their mutual older sister who died of a heart attack since she had a weak heart after they taking a trip together to the sea.
I actually did not felt aroused by this film but actually felt intrigued. In my eyes I could see it as just another R rated film about romance, drama and the bonds of family than just some mere porn to jack off. And for that I am really satisfied.
Its unfortunate that hentai of now days don't try anymore to be decent and put effort into it and just imitates the same stereotype formula over and over.
And its a shame that not many people actually appreciate the effort of people in the 90s put into making something decent.
The animation also was decent for traditional creation and the heroines were cute and down to earth.
This film was enjoyable.
