Jel’s verdict: Incurable

If you want to make porn, just make porn. You don’t have to waste time coming up with elaborate reasons for it. The majority of this episode is spent backing the main character into a corner so that he has absolutely no choice but to have sex with as many women as possible. For example, we get a very serious conversation about why artificial insemination is not an option and he must actually penetrate these women to get them pregnant. But even then, since this is anime and everyone has to stay pure and virginal, they arrive at a really dumb middle ground in which they can still parade around a lot of naked anime girls with no sex occurring.

Add this on top of shoddy worldbuilding and mediocre animation, and there’s nothing to recommend here. It begs the question of who this anime is supposed to be for. The plot is too thin to be interesting on its own, so if you’re looking for a cool sci-fi thriller it fails. Since the bulk of the screen time is spent trying to justify the premise, there is only a few brief (and hilariously censored) scenes with naked anime girls. So if you’re looking for softcore anime porn, it also fails. I guess the only positive thing I can say is they attempt to respect everyone’s consent in this situation? That’s really fishing for something though, just skip this.
