Grisaia no Kajitsu
Also known as “Le Fruit de la Grisaia”, the visual novel “グリザイアの果実” is the first in a series of three eroge featuring the same cast and similar stories with a quite a bit of action and violence.
Knowing “Grisaia no Kajitsu” would not be a typical eroge based harem anime, thought I would give the show a try, hoping it would offer something different. While the anime has been sufficiently entertaining, am struggling to keep up with it as the various subplots have not been able to really convince me.
Even though the various heroine’s background stories are more eventful than those seen in most typical harem anime, nonetheless find them rather incredulous. They may have worked well in the original visual novel format, but they do not seem to work out so well in the anime for me as a viewer.
The animation itself by studio 8Bit is good enough, the various girls are always very cute and the studio translated some of their specific design elements quite well into anime form.
Recently fell behind on watching the latest “Grisaia no Kajitsu” episodes, but might pick up the show again. While nowhere near excellent and not the type of eroge adaptation that usually appeals to me personally, it is still sufficiently entertaining.
