Grisaia no Kajitsu

I just finished watching an amazing episode from an amazing show. I’m not talking about Grisaia no Kajitsu this time. This is one was based on an erotic visual novel and I do believe there is a manga out there as well, so my expectations of this aren’t really high.

Grisaia no KajitsuThe artwork is okay. It’s better than I had expected. I was going in a different direction when I learned about that visual novel. Goes to show that you just cannot judge a book by its cover.

It’s probably the story that’s going to be the problem. I find that visual novels don’t always have the best of stories, although I have to be honest and say that I haven’t got a lot of experience with them. I’ve played about a dozen of them in my life and half of them didn’t contain any major nudity, so I have very little knowledge when it comes to visual novels.

I must be honest and say that the first episode really caught my eye. It was quite interesting. I was also impressed that those panty flashes were subtle, giving me the impression that I won’t have to worry about fan service overdoses. I suggest you give the first episode a try too.

Plot Summary: Mihama Academy—on the surface, a closed learning environment established to nurture students who find themselves at odds with the world around them; in actuality, an orchard-cum-prison built to preserve fruit that has fallen too far from its tree.

Whatever the circumstances behind its establishment, Mihama Academy is at present home to five female students, all with their own reasons for “enrollment.” For better or worse, each girl has established a routine obliging of her current situation; life moves at an idle, yet accommodating pace within the walls of Mihama.

Yet with the arrival of the institute’s first male student, the nearly preposterously opaque Kazami Yuuji, the students at Mihama begin to fall out of step with their predetermined rhythms. Will Yuuji prove to be the element the girls around him needed to take hold of their lives once more, or will the weight of their pasts prove too steep a wall to overcome?

And in the first place, just who is Kazami Yuuji? While the true nature of the “job” he is wont to alight to at the most haphazard of moments remains shrouded in secrecy, one thing is for certain—his encroachment upon the quiet orchard known as Mihama Academy will prove itself momentous in one way or another. And of course, one cannot discount the possibility that perhaps Yuuji himself carries the weightiest past of any of the students…
