R-15 – First impressionsPosted: July 24, 2011
Main character Akutagawa Taketo has just entered high school. Not any old high school however, but Hirameki Gakuen – a school for prodigies, geniuses and extremely talented people. You have the standard stuff like geniuses of maths, music, science, hacking etc. Then there are some more unusual ones: photography, narration, management and so on. So, what kind of genius is our protagonist? Well he’s a genius at writing erotic novels. Yeah.
He has a tendency to daydream about people around him and then using his fantasies as plots when writing.
Needless to say, the fanservice level is through the roof. Or is it? The whole thing is so blatant that it seems more like a parody, and most of it actually feels like the comedy that is the result of the fanservice is the main goal. I sincerely hope that I’m not proven wrong in the future episodes, but I won’t be surprised if I am. If it really is an ecchi comedy played for laughs I can only say bravo to the creators.
