Today I start my streaming reviews for this season’s weirdest of harem-things, Seiren. Seiren isn’t actually good, but it’s at least pretty strange, which is certainly better than boring. I do wish these shows would start including protagonists who have at least a smidgen of personality, but I suppose that would limit their usefulness as audience proxies, so this is what we get. I’ve certainly watched worse shows!
You can check out my full review over at ANN, or my notes below.
Hikari Tsuneki is the girl
Her and her friend finally upgraded to the normal class, after a week in summer courses
The MC is so milquetoast
“You’re a bit too provocative for them to handle”
MC immediately starts trying to placate them
“Do you have a goal of your own?”
“I can’t tell her she spurred me into trying to change myself for the better”
Today it’s a ramen soup kink
He just acts baffled by her
We’ve had a good minute of straight leering, here. But it is well-drawn leering!
“I never knew navels and sweat pant marks were such a dangerous combination”
They take a swim in the men’s bath
And now it’s wetting yourself fetishism
Great, a gay panic joke
Shoichi Kamita’s the MC
“Do all girls lie through their teeth?” What?
He starts probing her about boyfriends
This episode is pretty disjointed
