Well, this anime isn't exactly complete yet. So the scores given aren't official, as of yet.
Basically, the story follows the peaceful life of Rika, Naoto, Hikari, and Lovriel after rescuing Rika. (If you've seen season 2, also known as Second Coming, then you know what I'm talking about). Let's just say that their peace is not lived for very long. There's a photography student taking pornographic photos of the students, which all somehow connect to Misty May's return. When faced with a very strong tentacle monster, Hikari gets kidnapped. They become depressed, until an android of sorts named Nagi is introduced. Her mission?
To rescue Hikari and make sure Rika is safe. But can they rescue Hikari in time...?
I rated the story with an eight because honestly, it is enjoyable, but I feel like there could be more. Not to mention...it's a little predictable.
I found the art to be very good. The characters are drawn very well, and look like their game counterparts. There's only one flaw though; the coloring. I feel that the colors look a little strange at times.
The sound overall is excellent. The voice actors clearly put lots of effort into their voices. Aoyama Yukari, who plays Rika, captured Rika's character just right, in my honest opinion. Hokuto Minami, who voiced Hikari, captured the albeit annoying (or cute, depending on your feelings) emotions of an imouto type character. The rest of the voice cast did just as well. The music really fits the tone of each scene, although I find the battle music a tad unfitting with certain ones.
I think the characters are pretty unique, if not more original than many hentai anime characters. While not extremely original, they certainly stand out in their own rights. Their designs are one of those things, but their personalities count, too. Rika is the sweet childhood friend of Naoto, Hikari is Naoto's stepsister, Lovriel is their angelic companion, Misty May is...well, the villain with a mean, mean streak, and Nagi is the mysterious silent one. They all are more interesting than stated, and are very lovable. (Rika-chama~!!!)
I personally enjoyed this particular anime quite a lot. The overall tone is a very lighthearted one, even if it is tentacle and has some...hardcore things in the mix. It's not NSN level, though. The characters were fun to watch, and the story continues to unfold as each episode comes out. With two more episodes left, will Hikari be saved? And will we, the viewers, be spared of another cliffhanger thanks to Milky?
Until next time, this has been Kitty.
