(Spoilers Free) #ithink.
So far i have read a total of 6 chapters And only 3 letters stays pinpointed on my head. ~WTF~
Lets get down to Business , If you dislike heavy gore, extreme nudity and hate deaths in general, Then i would advise you to never ever read this manga. On the other hand if you enjoy them, then oh boy, you are in for a treat.
As the Synopsis shows "Distributing thrilling videos in secret! A school game that puts life and death on the line!". Along these lines i would really recommend adding the words "What","The" and "Fuck".
After laughing out loud on
how cheesy it sounds i decided to venture in the unknown expecting little, But right of the bat i was intrigued by the simple plot it gives. Not only is it easy to grasp but it leaves quite a few mysteries that makes you get hooked to a extent as well as crazy Cliffhangers. Right now i cannot wait till the next chapter comes out
Oh Ma God. Don't even get me started on how good and refining the art style is. The background may not WOW you , but the design of the characters excite me if ya catch my drift :). All in all the art quality is consistent throughout the chapters .
At first i thought the main male lead was just your average student getting caught in a mess. But my god. I clearly did not expect him to have such a weird fetish. Ever heard of the phrase" Never Judge a book by its cover?" yea, well this phrase could be used on every Character. Its the Unique sudden Eureka moment when you finally see their true colors that makes you think,"Wow that's screwed up" But once you expect this the factor of amazement is gradually decreased. One thing that makes me sad is the development of many characters are utterly ignored.(or just ATM). If we could learn more about the characters then maybe we would emphasis with them a bit more. But still gotta Love the Main lead, Both female and Male :D.
I totally enjoy Anything involving Nudity,gore and horror so .... I loved it.
From the direction this manga is heading , it is looking very promising.
The story is really dumb. But if you're the type of person that will read this after being intrigued by the plot-line, then you might enjoy it. I read it because I like darker stuff, but rather than being pitch-black, this is more like a shit brown. The main girl is drawn really attractively so that kept me reading, plus the rest of the artwork is well done. But holy shit if this won't make you lose a few brain cells in the process of reading it.
I think I should reiterate that the only enjoyment I got out of this was that the
main girl is hot and sometimes you get to see her tits. Skip this if you are over the age of 15 or have higher standards in writing then badly written NTR.
[Semi Spoilers but only disclosing what happens in the first chapter so you better be not surprised]
=TL;DR WILL BE AT THE BOTTOM=
You follow the main character Machiya Tomohiro, a cameraman working for the Film Research Club. The only thing he ever wants in life to to record and film. One day he bumps into a girl named Mashiro Mai, who asks him to record her daily life. Being the edgy man that Machiya is, he accepts and continues to film her for the next few days. One thing leads to another and suddenly Machiya finds that Mashiro is a crazy murdering bitch.
Now, as someone who
really enjoys reading graphic manga, Dead Tube really shines upon itself on it's artwork, thanks to Kitakawa Touta, but my main concern is how hard it tries to be to, "become the most edgiest manga" in the story line. I won't be spoiling anything that happens after chapter one but I will hint out that everything past chapter one is a disappointment. The format of the story is just fantastic, showing how crazy humans can be just for fame and fortune, and will do anything for it, but it will bring you down that it just kind repeats itself for the next several chapters. All they want and do is sex and murder, giving you a vibe that it just repeats itself consistently. After chapter 15, it just becomes ridiculous and uninteresting, trying to keep itself up with being edgy. In my opinion, you don't connect with the story and just basically stay for the artwork provided. One thing that really grinds my gears is the characters.
The characters are cliche, plain and uninteresting to see. You get your MC, boring, has no meaning in life and just stays there for plot convenience, then you have SC, who is a crazy yandere bitch that will do anything for money and fame (or just outright crazy). Any other character introduced will just make you annoyed to the point you're asking yourself 'when will they die?' and if that thought ever arose from my mind, I would drop the series completely. You don't really feel for the characters but rather to just pitch a tent or unleash the water gates.
The setting of the story is pretty common too. You have the highschool, the MC house, sometimes the SC house and it just really doesn't bring much to the table. Though after the 12 or so chapters, the setting changes completely which is good in a way but it doesn't change the fact that the story itself is kind of bland.
Bad notes aside, I've been mentioning this a lot in the review but the artwork is just tremendous. The way the facial expressions are, the movements and the gore really gives you a great feeling about the story. It may look normal and typical the first few frames but focus a lot on the characters faces and it's somewhat realistic.
This has been my first review so I apologize if everything is all over the place or there is grammar mistakes but I thank you for reading and taking your time this far! I will give my overall verdict.
As seen above my review, I am giving this a 6/10 Benedict Cumberbatch's. The reason why it isn't any lower is because of the artwork alone. The story is unique in a way but it doesn't try hard enough to make it seem unique and special in its' own way and continues to try so hard to be edgy that it's a complete square. The characters are boring and uninteresting and it just doesn't make me want to keep reading. If you're here for the titties then enjoy them while it lasts because it will get boring real quickly.
Story is special but doesn't highlight on it, the art is amazing, with having amazing facial expressions, characters are boring as shit, you're most likely going to read it for the titties.
Thanks for reading! ( ＾∇＾)
Where do I begin with the mess that this manga's story is? As a person who doesn't like survival games, yet I have read a fair bit of Btoom...not sure if that is it's correct spelling or not, but I do not see any story in Dead Tube. Btoom is the only other survival game manga I have read which had a story. Dead Tube has a plot, but that is all it has. The plot being film gruesome scenes and get the most views. It's a good idea as a plot point, but not as a story.
And the "story" is hardly held together by
the two main characters who at 33 chapters in haven't displayed any real kind of development aside from some dull moments of forced emotional distress. Adding to this, we also gain quite a few one off characters which are introduced during the arc and subsequently killed off in the same arc. Few characters have hung around long enough to see the next arc, but still no development even from them.
Even the villans hang around just long enough for their roll and then they die.
The point here is explaining why there is no story to this manga and why all the characters are more or less side characters and not main. There is no over arcing plot, unless you count the psycho girls backstory which we've gotten already. What is the point of Dead Tube? Seems it would be better suited as a case by case story, each chapter/arc being a new set of characters.
Now I've stray from the review a bit but only to show that this plot can be part of a good story, it's just horribly handle in this authors hands.
There are one or two interesting arc's within the manga but they are poorly done as I mentioned prior. Not to mention easily predictable. But if you are one for blood, gore, and lots of nakedness--as well as other bodily fluids that has decent art. Then this is the manga for you, just don't expect a story. It's just a bunch of killing.
After I read the existing 44 chapters I can give my honest review about this shitshow:
DeadTube is way to fckd up and thats its problem. The scenes and storys connected to them are basicly always the same. They all rely on rape, nuditiy, gore and revenge. These things are a very cheap way of writing and also of presenting a story. The actions from almost every single character are not reasonable at all.They mostly "just do" for always the same reason. (money or fetish)
I mean, its good if you want to lose some braincells. I cant imagine any1 really enjoying this bs unless you are
under the age of 16 (Kappa). This is the kind of shit why so many "normies" dont want to give manga/anime a try and for me its understandeble.
So, I see this manga again after two years since I first read it in 2016, and I spent the last 2 days binging it and catching up to what is at the time of this post the latest chapter, chapter 44.
First off this isn't a manga that should be binged. It's just unbearable to read multiple chapters of this psychotic shitshow of a manga. At least not for me.
As for the manga itself, I guess I'll start with story. The general synopsis is that there's this site called Deadtube and people upload basically very very bad boy stuff on there from rape to mutilation
and murder to gain views and millions of yen. The site and the acts that can be seen on the site are protected from worldwide scrutiny by "corruption", a really totally completely flawless excuse for why people can get away with mass murder and the like.
But guess what, there's a super secret catch, the lowest viewed channel on the site gets to take the fall for all the rest of the crimes and shit the rest of the site does.
Now the story focuses on our MC, a sad degenerate to put it mildly, who loves filming. What he likes filming the most though, well that's you would have to read to find out.
Oh, don't get it wrong, he's not alone. 95% of the characters in this manga are just plain psychos just to be psychos. The author also has the really cool habit of making sure to brutally kill off pretty much every character who's somewhat good for the really wow factor.
The other 5% of the characters are a little better development wise but when your main girl's specialty is to just to be a weapon wielding psycho , it doesn't really speak volumes about your ability to make interesting characters.
The arts somewhat decent, which is a small saving grace of this manga. It does give good eye candy of cute girls, of course before it brutally kills them or before making sure to shove in your face a friendly reminder that they're either side characters to rack up the body count or just evil as shit villians.
Enjoyment wise, this was a hassle to catch up on. The main characters are pretty much all trash, both trash in writing, and trash as you want them to die. The story is halfassed with the excuse of "muh corruption" to explain why they can somehow coverup a site that hosts massive amounts of videos of mass murders and torture that involve thousands of people at minimum. It would be one thing if this manga incorporated perhaps some kind of fantasy element to help out with this, but this manga is supposed to be set in the same time era as current, so there's no excuse for why a supposed murder site of this proportion, even with the help of corrupt officials, would still be able to stay in the dark after all of the chaos it's brought. The only thing I found interesting about this manga was the good art and the fact that some of the characters that are seen are pretty fine, but even that is in general ruined by the fact that they are either psychotic or just get killed immediately.
Overall, I give this a 5. If you love gore and can turn your brain off to a shit plot, then go and enjoy this slaughterfest. Otherwise don't even bother, it's just another crappy gore manga that tries to play up the shock factor.
Essensially, this manga is for those who love gore, extreme nudility, and horror. If you can't take any of these things, stay away from this manga at all costs or you will have wierd images burned into your brain.
Story (6/10): I'll be honest, the plot isn't great. Once you get into it (around 25 chapters in) the story begins to get really repetitive. Outside of deadtube videos and events, the story of the characters in school (without the gore) is seriously medicore. Even Tomohiro Machiya's main goal in deadtube is really not written well (not explaining the goal due to spoilers but yeah). There
are a few inconsistencies and questional points in the plot (again not going into details due to spoilers). However besides this cases, the story of the deadtube videos and events are made reasonably well. There are plenty of plot twists in that make you appreciate the author's creativity (or what seems to be mental insanity to some). Overall, the story wasn't great, but it wasn't exactly bad either.
Art (10/10): The art is simply amazing. The art is clearly refined down to the detail and the art quality is really consistent throughout the all of the chapters. The extreme gore and death scenes are all done flawlessly with extreme precision. The art does a great job of displaying the character's emotions such as pleasure, insanity, questional mental states, and anger. The quality of art is so good that it makes me question Kitakawa Touta's sanity. If you can stomach all the gore, I would honestly recommend reading this just for the art.
Character (5/10): The character development wasn't great either. The characters are really only developed through deadtube and gory events. Although the character's fetish's, insanity, and enjoyments where very well characterized, everything else about the character was practically ignored. Thus, I gave the characters a really average score.
Enjoyment (5/10): I believe the amount of enjoyment for each person will vary drastically due to the differences in taste. Personally as someone who doesn't love extreme gore and death, naturally a manga such as this wouldn't give me much enjoyment. My enjoyment mainly came from the amazing art and some interesting plot twists through the story. However, if you're someone who love gore and messed up scenes, this manga would become your favorite very fast.
Overall (8/10): Although my enjoyment wasn't very high, I still have to give it to this manga for the fantastic art and beautifully constructed scenes of mental insanity. The overall high score largely came from the extremely accurate descriptions of messed up sh*t through the flawless art. This manga is most definitely the most messed up manga of everything I've seen.
TLDR - Like gore? Read it. Don't like gore? Don't read it. Indifferent? Read it cuz art is cool.
When was the last time you spend watching videos some people died in accidents brutally screwed up a bit..
Well If that's the cases we have here called a not so normal website when people tried to post some gruesome lowlife stock even talk about sex or death.. all over in the internet
I mean seriously? What could be possibly wrong with that? Said that to a freaking sadist like me...
The story isn't really that ordinary... If I remember correctly There's no way out, after you participate in some random stunt game.. You should Come up with some ideas in order to kill someone then
post it and now became viral after that some people reward you a price that's all.. But there's a punishment where the participants got killed when the video isn't interesting...Getting teaming up with a Psycho Sadist Bitch isn't really a bad idea..The only problem that comes from my mind is how can you trust her..
doing this onto her on self and keeping a secret to him. It's more like a hobby to her and now the guy has a weird fetish video taping numerous student die in your school. even your other member show their true colors..
"Being Nude don't make you attractive, As long as you spice them up a bit It's getting pretty much interesting," See What i thought, you're being left out and now you're becoming one of them.. Even the fanservice is becoming a borderline in every series... Due to my aspect it's a worth read.. I know some people found it "Most Fucked up Scene".. IMO Why don't you check it right now... and how good it was, Unless you're here for the PLOT but not the story..
I will not spend time writing 5-6 pages of review for this total malarkey.
This manga is horrible. The protagonist only enjoys filming murders and the female lead is the worst character to ever exist in this manga. This manga is way too edgy. Too much nudity, sex and gore are the pivotal elements of this ratshit. If you want to have a peaceful mind skip this manga. Just don't read it for sheer curiosity. I only read 6 chapters and man this was insanity at its pinnacle.
TAKE MY ADVICE HAVE A PEACEFUL LIFE.
ART: art is very good. Each gore scene is drawn with
precision and patience.
Enjoyment: If you are a fan of gore. This manga will be a fun ride and might be the best one you ever rode.
OVERALL: As i am not a fan of gore. This manga was just malarkey to me. But if you are an aficionado of edgy manga you will surely enjoy this.
In this manga humanity is infinitesimal but callousness, greed and animosity are exorbitant.
If you enjoy a shallow story with characters that seem more like robots following a specific type of attitude from any anime you've seen that this manga is right for you.
the keyword this manga strives for is 'shock'. It wants to shock it viewers, and I can say that I'm honestly not shocked at all, I'm actually bored out of my mind. Which is surprising considering that every two pages you're going to find either gore or rape. But honestly, you've probably seen everything this manga has to offer from your friendly neighborhood fishy website. Head sliced in half, see it. Body
stitching, seen it. Decapitation, seen it. It gets old real fast. You know what actually shocks viewers? actual horror.
Another unsurprising thing? That the characters as shallow as a puddle and just follow a specific attitude. You've seen it all folks, girl acting innocent but is sadistic, check. Girl acting joyful but is dark and cruel, check. Absolutely nothing of the main character that has nothing to offer but shitty reactions and doesn't provide any meaningful plot? Oh, you know it.
The idea of the story is pretty fun, but it delivers kinda flat. Either being too long or too short, even though it has tried to spice it up by having little twists here and there or some boring character arcs.
The art is actually kinda enjoyable, giving the character a certain charm. But even that gets worse as the chapters progress, getting more and more simple.
Overall the Manga is really boring, don't waste your time, read something else.
I'm going, to be honest, *THIS HAS JUST A LITTLE DAB OF A SPOILERS THAT IS PRETTY UNNOTICEABLE*
This is what I think currently from the 38 chapters I've read.
This manga is obviously very gory and full of nudity from what you are expecting. If you are not a fan of gore or 'rape' ect you will have trouble reding this. It will keep you hooked to read more of this because of the amount of crazy plot twists and deaths that happen even though you might not be enjoying what is happening. This manga is not scared to go to the line of
the point where it could be classed as a hentai. BUT if your a person who loves gore and likes seeing people tortured, betrayed, go insane or just interested to see what a sinister manga is like, this is for you!
Story 7: Sometimes you question how things have come to this point and why, or sometimes you can expect what's going to happen. Although it's just a story that wants to be gory as possible.
Art 10 :Amazing that it is seriously scary sometimes. Very graphic and everything is detailed.
Character 8: Seems like the isn't much character development because the isn't much time to go into the past of each character only the main herione (Mashiro Mai) because she is the only one who seems to have a crazy background to have an explanation why she is like what she is. The is to much plot to have development with characters although what happens to them does still get to you as you would hope for them to be ok or escape which never happens.. (unless your a main character)
Enjoyment 8: As i said if your into go and seeing people cry for their life, this is for you. If your not into that your not enjoying it, it's more whereas you are interested as whats going to happen next.
Overall 8: Personally i mainly read this because of curisoty and how corrupt it can get in the story. I like this because of how realistic it is and unrealistic it is because it shows how a normal school guy would not be able to fight trained assassains lets say. Althought is unlrealistic to show how crazy some of the events that happens like in 'school with George L'( for all those people who have read up on to that point) it's pretty mental what happens and other times like the main girl can hold herself up with a muscle man trying to push her down. Seriously Mashiro Mai is too strong at times. In the end i am interested and invested to this manga that i don't want it to end.
Story 3/10, Art 6/10, Character 2/10, Enjoyment 3/10, Overall 3/10
It is another situation where skills of a very experienced artist are wasted on a poor story, unconvincing characters and weak and unimpressive attempts to shock the viewer with gore, violence, nudity and sex. There's rape, murder, dismemberment, gore, sex, but somehow it avoids becoming Guro or Hentai title.
In essence, this is somewhat similar to Kakegurui(anime) or Mahou Shoujou of the End (manga) and is as bad as both of those. The central idea of the work is apparently to demonstrate "horrible" and "monstrous" qualities of a human, i.e. how greed and fear turn humans into
monsters, so they start killing/raping anything that moves. As it often happens with such works, it is full of "Jester villains". A jester villain is a villain who acts in the most despicable way possible, dealing as much damage to anything he or she can, all the time laughing like a lunatic... except they look like a caricature seem to have no motivation of any kind, and do not resemble a person. A purpose of a jester villain is an attempt to shock the viewer, but this usually fails. In addition to jester villain there are supposedly "horrible" scenes of dismemberment, bunch of crazy faces (you know where character smiles in a crazy way and is made to look as disgusting as possible), etc.
Except that none of this works. They author(authors?) went too far going after shock element, and as a result the world does not look like a real place, and characters do not resemble real people. As a result none of this is scary or believable or "disgusting", and most of the time I felt nothing.
To be honest, second arc felt like it was going somewhere interesting, but then it had to do a "major reveal", after which it very quickly became quite stupid, and everything that was good about it shattered.
Detailed breakdown below:
As mentioned above, it is never ending stream of attempts to shock the reader. However, because of how far they go with their attempts to depict "horrifying" scenes, the world does not look like a real place, and look like a decoration. The first and second arcs for a moment looked like they were going somewhere, but at some point in the second arc where they performed "major reveal", it fell apart and became a farce.
The art is quite good, and well drawn. Well drawn, visually interesting characters, nice and interesting designs (except that those characters are often wasted as cannon fodder, almost on Terra Formars level), filled backgrounds without any obvious attempts to cut the workload. The situations with excessive gore or when somebody is covered in blood from head to toe usually look worse, because blood is not really drawn well and looks like dirty splats on pages (ton of them), aside from that it is quite well drawn. Not the supreme masterpiece level, but good.
Do not resemble real people, are not sympathetic, and are not believable. Too many people flip into "crazy mode" too often, and as a result they look like caricatures and it is not possible sympathize with any of them. Main character is especially bad, because it switches between at least 3 different personalities, neither of which are well written.
The art is good. Anything that is not art is not.
If you want to read it, the best idea is to shut off your brain, pretty much. The work is of poor quality story-wise, but has nice visuals. It probably won't appeal to anyone who wants even remotely believable characters or a story that is actually scary, and it doesn't work as a farce.
Honestly... I've seen "shocking" material handled better. For example, "Black Joke" worked incredibly well for me as "over the top" farce with fights, slaughter and sexual or near sexual situations. This title didn't work for me.
I REALLY liked this manga, why? Cos even tho the premise is somehow not so unique, the way the characters are, it makes me want to know more about them, specially Mai, I'm a sucker for horror/wtf stories so that must be also a part of why do I love it so much.
I love how it starts pretty gruesome quite soon letting you know what are you getting in, the way the story unfolds is, to me, quite creative, specially the "crazy rascal" arch, seriously, horror movies should do that stuff more often.
After reading Ana Satsujin the whole murder and sexyness together is quite
interesting, I also have particular interest in the fact of the 2 leads, Machiya and Mai being as pure physically as fucked up in the head, it's almost a reverse proportion... who knows. I am eager to read more
This manga is really bad. It tries to be a horror manga, which it successfully does on the surface, but when one really goes into it, one would realise how bad this manga actually is.
Edit:Go fking read some good manga, I would be a good guy here and suggest that you read horror manga before 2010, yet some of the bests ones are older. This manga is comparable Scumbag loser and that manga is a fking joke trust me
Story(2): It is a pretty shit story, which contains multiple short stories which all tie into the dead tube website. First story had a plot twist that
was weird, and the same goes for all the other ones. As each chapter unfolds, things get more grim, and then all the occurring characters are portrayed as corrupt people, and everyone has been raped before. With each story, I felt that I was getting most autistic. Everything made sense, and the story is straight forward, but it was portrayed in a way that hides everything from the reader, which makes a shit story even more shit. The ecchi element to this manga is very unnecessary, and my overall rating would be up by 1 or 2 if it wasn't for this. I know I am being very harsh to this manga, yet whenever I look at this and think of Uzumaki, which I don't think has much, or even any, sexual themes, I just laugh and want to kill the author for wasting a few hours of my life. I became dumber through this horrible experience. The only impact this story has is from the rape that happens every chapter that has made me more and more fkd and now I am a brainless blob.
Art(6): Art is fine, fits in with most of the light horror manga with not much essence to it (with the only selling point being the art, rather than the plot or anything else). Characters, when desperate, are portrayed weirdly.
Characters(1): Male protagonist: is not even a good guy, has fetishes for dead things, and killing, and gets boners from them. Very shallow guy, does not even have a fixed personality, always changes without reason. Female secondary protagonist: likes killing people, and does not really care about anyone except for MC? Kind of like a shit yandere that is disgusting to look at even fully clothed. Blonde slut: person with glasses, think she likes mc in the start, then realise she was acting, and that she probably does IT everyday since the age of 1, so it is like a basic instinct for her, and she is the slut of sluts, nobody can ever rape her because she always likes/does not care about it. Blonde slut 2: person with long hair, likes MC, got raped. Then there is a myriad of useless other characters who have barely any impact on the story.
Enjoyment(1): If there was a zero option I would chose that. Don't know why I kept looking at it though
Overall(1): Don't know why the rating is so high, it is 7.49 more than it deserves, reflects a shitty Japanese culture. It tries to be a good horror manga except it is not, it is very cancerous, and is much like the top 100 manga fox horror manga which are new and shit to the core. There must be something wrong with the people who give this more than a 3. A 3 is already pushing my limits.
Thanks for reading and don't was your time looking at this garbage or else you would suicide and/or become lifeless.
Edit: There are far more manga that are better than this. In fact, almost all anime is better than this other than fking Yaoi and shit. The only reason people give it such a high score is because they think that this manga is psychological, and such yet to me, the selling point to alot of horror manga is not the fking dumbshit plot, its the setting that counts, and the setting in this manga is so generic that I want to die.
I'm going to try to sumarize mi opinion as much as I can:
1.Story: I think the concept is really original, It was about time that someone used it for a manga. (but i can't avoid to remember Mirai Nikki)
2.Character designs: It's not very good, it's very generic for me, but it's alright , I guess.
3.Character development: Well, it's kinda short for some of them, but I don't care about most of the manga's characters so I dont mind it.
4.Character personality: The protagonist has a personality that I really love, he looks like he is a sweet, inoccent boy, but in the inside, well, I won't
spoil anything, but it is really nice, every character has a side that you won't expect.
5.Art: I love it, but the style is really generic.
You should read Dead Tube, if you like nicely done gore scenes and awesome character development, you will enjoy this.
Before you read this manga you should know that it contains a lot of graphic nudity and violence. Including themes of rape, assault and murder. If any of this bothers you then i would not recommend this manga. For me personally the nudity in some places is used well for the story tone and plot but on a lot of cases is a little over the top. If you can look passed that then there is a nice manga underneath. From the first chapter one gets the impression that it is just a mindless fan service piece with little depth but as you read further
the story immediately takes a turn towards the realm of interesting. With a combination of horror, thriller and Mystery it holds your attention gets you craving the next installment to find out how it ends.
I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys Horror,Thriller or Mystery with a look at the darker side of the human condition
Ever hear rumours about the 'deep web' where videos of people get killed for the sole purpose of other's enjoyment exist? That is exactly what this manga is.
Timid-looking main character and his crazy girlfriend with people killing each other like mad might remind you of Mirai Nikki, but this one does not involve anything godly or beyond us, just human.
Plot is original as far as I know, though you will see a lot of cliché elements (like the one I mentioned above) but so far it managed to keep me engaged. The idea might sounds boring, but keep in
mind that there are a lot of these so called Dead Tuber (the one who made videos) and they are dead serious when it comes to beating their rivals. The Dead Tube also gives different themes or criteria for the videos, like Youtube challenges, I can't help but try to think of the possible setting as well.
You probably aware that this manga contain heavy gore and ecchi (hell, it might be considered as hentai at this point) in very detailed images, sometimes too detailed for my comfort. If you like these kind of thing, good for you.
At first everyone seems bland, but you will discover new things about them, either good or bad. I went from hating the character to rooting for them in less than 15 chapter. Expect some character development. Don't get too attached though, you don't know when it is their turn to be filmed :D
