Poor show ; | by nestharus August 4, 2010 - 12:23 AM PDT

Ok, so this series has a ton of sex in it, but that to me wasn't the issue. I remember beginning to watch it and immediately thinking, this is just like porn (not that I like porn, I find it boring) (the music, the sub par animation, the bleh voice acting, just everything, and of course the billion sex scenes). I honestly got through a few minutes of it, read some reviews to see if it got any better (which it apparently did not), and decided that it was a poor show.

In finality, why was the show poor?
1. Poor art/animation
2. Bleh voice acting
3. Obnoxious repeating sound effects (a dog was barking and it was the same exact bark over and over again...)
4. Almost every scene seems to relate to sex (the story seems to take a backseat).

I honestly can't see how anyone could enjoy this series. Don't be lured in by the spunky intro!! The story will kick you in the face as soon as the show starts O_o.
