True to its name, Let’s Fall in Love the Ero-Manga (LFLEM) consists of four short ero-manga plots in a 2-part series about cute ecchi love. Funny, erotic, and sweet, LFLEM delivers a huge dose of MOE for otaku’s all around the world who are teased and unsatisfied with regular anime.
Story wise, LFLEM gives you four sweet slices of MOE, each with its distinct flavoring that will leave you wanting more.
The first episode dedicates itself to one thing and one thing only: tsundere, and gives it to you in two delicious flavors: the moody childhood friend and the arrogant ojou-sama. Oh, the
bitter sweetness of moody girls who are just too proud or arrogant to admit that they like you. And ah… the satisfaction you get from when they finally give in to you, in this case, all the way.
The second episode is devoted to nee-san (older sister) love. The older sisters in this episode are rather air-headed and hopeless, leaving the protagonists (younger brothers) to “help” them out in various ways.
To be honest, there is not much of a story, but the plot is well executed in each arc with extended hot ecchi scenes and lots of cute dirty talking that won’t annoy you.
LFLEM is really all about character. I think they perfectly conveyed the essence of MOEness through each of the female leads. It’s very subtle at first, perhaps with a slight blush of the face, the twinkling of the eyes, or the cute let out of the voice: “kya!” Before you know it, it’ll hit you like a ton of bricks: MOE~!
Mistuki is the moody tsundere childhood friend of the first arc. She cares about your well being in an obtrusive and pushy manner. She’s also rather violent and will punch your lights out at the slightest sense of embarrassment. She'll make some curry if you're hungry, but only because she "happened to make extra".
The Ojou-sama of the second arc is arrogant and demanding. She doesn’t know how to ask for help when she needs it; but “D~don’t get the wrong idea!" She just happened to be around the neighborhood, s~ so you better be thankful when she shows up in front of your door step after running away from home.
Azusa is the nee-san of the 3rd arc. On a particular day, she goes into heat and must engage in sex until she’s “full”. Warning! Her appetite is insatiable. However, with her twinkling sad puppy eyes, you just can’t ignore her.
And then lastly, there’s Mayo-nee, who is troubled about her big breasts. She is some what of an air-head and comes to you for advice. She’s so gullible and clueless; you just can’t help but play with her innocent misconceptions.
At first glance, the art of LFLEM seems very generic. The character designs are cute with oversized proportions, i.e. big eyes, big breast, and big behind. But you begin to overlook the fact as you develop a liking to the characters themselves. The background images aren’t all that detailed, but who cares, you didn’t come to stare at the scenery. It’s all about the ecchi scenes!
The animation is fairly standard for hentai these days and perhaps slightly above average. There are lots of nice angle shots with some repetitive frames you will be thankful for and perhaps one or two glistening fan service stills. A lot of attention was given to bouncing breasts and dripping, stringy vaginal fluids. Hooray!
I like the, almost continuous, background music that plays through out the series. It really accentuates a lot of situations in a non-obtrusive way. It will play softly in the background and come to a crescendo right before, shall we say, “orgasmic moments”, giving way to the nice prominent sound of erupting semen. The dynamic repertoire of squishy splashy water noises is never ending. There is also lots of silly sound FX that bring out the comedic nature of LFLEM. The voice casting was very well chosen for this series as well. All of them fill their prospective roles nicely and, along with the dialog, manages to bring out the most important aspect: MOE!
By the end of the series, LFLEM will have you chanting “Moe! Moe! Moe!”
With a blend of silly humor, cute personalities, and great ecchi plots, LFLEM will bring out the otaku in you and make you a believer.
