Well, that was really obvious about it's hentai game origins. Had a bit of Sakura Taisen vibe to it with more focus on getting to the story than it's predecessor. A little rushed but might have potential.
The animation for the introduction was really interesting. It mau have been better to see the same style throughout. The changes from really light-hearted to dark wre very sudden. Could be worth watching more.
I felt pretty drawn to this show. It was interesting and the flow of it is pretty smooth.
