I've seen people get holy-handed angry about this series, claiming it's nothing more than dialled-back netorare (i.e. a subgenre of hentai revolving around a female lead cuckolding the male lead) or that it's comparable to School Days, of all things. The lack of imagination and empathy towards these characters when it comes to understanding that this is not simply "School Days 2017" but actually much more mature, intelligent, and hard-hitting than School Days could ever hope to be. Other people say that it's an uncomfortable anime to watch, and there again I don't get why they seem to think so. If this had been rooted read more

Let's get into it.

Story:

Mafuyu Oribe and Tomo Yamanaobe attend a private religious school called St. Mikhailov Academy, a parochial school of the Eastern Orthodox branch. Mafuyu is the adopted daughter of Tomo's father, the previous dean, who's been missing. The two find a Russian boy with white hair and blues eyes named Aleksandr. Quickly they become discover and become embroiled in the battles had between Qwasers--people blessed with the ability to control elements of hte periodic table; Aleksandr is thus established as the Iron Qwaser. A Qwaser's powers require the replenishment of energy through Soma, a magical substance drawn from the breasts of a woman read more

Story:

So we have a main character named Sakiko Kinoshita who's in college and very much in love with her professor Takashou Chifuyu. She shamelessly hits on him and he rejects her advances. No matter, just try even harder to win his love! Personally, I've grown used to this being a source of comedy in romance stories, so it doesn't bother me that much. Anyway, she learns that she will not have enough money to pay for college so she decides to become an escort. This plan falls through within five seconds when she stupidly asks for the whole tuition upfront with a potential customer. Before read more

Seikon no Qwaser is an enigma: Balancing action with extreme ecchi; BDSM elements; in-your-face fan service including faux lesbian (and real lesbian) action, panty shots, and bathing scenes; a developing harem for the main male lead; slightly tired character tropes; and an overarching religious theme a la the Eastern Orthodox Christian church, it would seem like this anime would be destined to fail.

The fact that I enjoyed it for the most part and found that the story and characters were much more layered than they first appear makes this much more highly rated than other series that attempt to do something similar (exceptions being, arguably, read more

Only watch this if you like to revel in "so bad it's bad" kind of stories.

All of the guys in this anime are abusive and cruel to the girl; this anime doesn't even stroke the "guilty pleasure" part of my brain. They are just outright assholes.

Twilight's Bella Swan has more initiative and backbone than the girl in this anime, at least ten times as much. For all the whining and moping Bella Swan does, she still has some bit of an impulsive and defiant streak. None to be had with the girl in this anime.

What bothers me is that this girl is absolutely and read more

I still feel a pang of disappointment whenever I see this title. It had potential. A simple title of vampirism with an absolutely gorgeous male lead and an okay female protagonist but it just fell into melodramatic schlock with a very dissatisfying ending.

I loved the art very much. I found it to be quite beautiful and competent and the male lead was competently okay in that he was serviceable for being the charming vampire that he was. The daughter was fine but easily replaceable with any other random girl, and the other vampire butlers could have been done away with.

The whole "I can't live read more
