Premise is really interesting... just a shame the execution wasn't up to snuff IMO. I dunno, when the BL stuff is the one I find most amusing, then that's saying something lol. XD

Why bother making an fanservice ecchi anime, just to censor all of it? I doubt the viewers will be back to buy the Bluerays. R-15 was just bad.

I like the two blue haired girls as well but I feel so apathetic to the main girl, not exactly the feeling you want to put into your viewers imo...

while I like a good romance comedy story every now and then, even with ecchi elements, it seems like this show is going to be off my charts.

yep it was bad... seems kinda screwed up for me... a pr0n novel writer, who fantasizes with censorship lines... if they want to make us happier then rate it for 18+ and then just DO IT!

and dont tell me that this bastard will pick the little pinky *****.the photographer girl, the bondage beast and the idol... these three are my choices...

Being too blunt with erotica can really kill the eroticism of it. You have to let your imagination fill in the blanks sometimes.

I still remember feeling besieged for daring to say I liked Mitsudomoe at first, when everyone seemed to hate it. I see something similar in this, at least based on one episode - some of the same clever situation comedy and reckless disregard for decency. I don't expect this to be as good - directors do matter, for one thing - but I'll stick to my guns at least for a week. That was a good premiere.

I was expecting something akin to B gata H kei, but in the end, R-15 has so much left to be desired that it is actually harder to find what is the actual good stuff in there.

Frankfully, this was perhaps the worst pilot episode I've seen for a good while: very flat and uninspiring jokes, "in your face" fanservice being basically obliterated by the most powerful solar beams, cast without much quirk, along with a very tedious protagonist (his only role thus far is being a poor excuse for fanservice altogether).

It is actually appealing for that simple question: why bother making that kind of fanservice if it is going to be annihilated like that? Subtility can also be effective.
Really, it is like they wanted to use B gata H kei, but void of fun whatsoever.

tl;dr: an asinine first episode.

I am going to agree with the swordmaiden maniac above me - this episode left a lot to be desired. While the setup has the potential for some good quirks and bizarre situations, it felt like the episode never took advantage of potential the setting allows. It wasn't anywhere near whacky enough to utilize its own guns, and came across as pretty dull instead.

Comedy is a very personal beast indeed, so there is a lot to be said about beauty being in the eyes of the beholder, but this simply didn't do it for me. Bland presentation and uninspiring usage (or lack of it) of the potential character quirks. The show simply seemed to lack that spark that sets comedies ablaze.

All in all, in the absence of comedy, all that was left was the fanservice, but even that didn't really pay off. No one here is new to censorship probably, but this was some pretty obnoxious usage of light rays of doom, pretty much nullifying whatever fanservice potential it had. With comedy not quite working for me and the fanservice canceled out, both being the prime elements of the show, was there anything left to write home about? Not for me, anyways.

A rather dull and "empty" experience all around, chances are likely I won't be checking out the second episode. This season has a pretty decent lineup so far, but sadly it doesn't seem like this is going to be a part of it.

Comedy is definitely a personal beast, maybe more so than any other genre. Inspired by this show I went back and read the first few pages of the Mitsudomoe thread, and see a lot of the same words being tossed around, for and against. It's just hard to predict what will strike any one person as funny and another as offensive or stupid.

For me, if this show is going to work it's going to be as a comedy, not for the fanservice. In the first place I don't generally watch anime for fanservice anyway (with exceptions for Fairy Tail's Lucy and a few others). In the second, I think the fanservice not being the point sort of is the point. Maybe I'm giving the LNs too much credit but I think the sheer absurdity of a kid like Taketo writing porn - and the sheer absurdity of the stuff he comes up with - is actually the joke. It's making fun of a 15 year-old's idea of what "sexy" is - and of the people who buy up the crap he writes.

I've already said that the bit with the missiles and the general tone of all the girls beating up Taketo is going to get old very quickly if it becomes a centerpiece of the series. And if I'm dead wrong and this really is just an excuse for fanservice (which actually seemed more gratuitous and pointless in ItsuTen to me than it did here) this will become tiresome in nanoseconds flat. But I definitely had a different take on the premiere than most, and I want to give this some time to prove who's right.

I like the little character quirks each one has to their genius trait....but the over-censoring is terrible. Even on things that's just a swimsuit?

It seems every show is throwing the white light censor on everything now..

Actually, I kind of enjoyed this first episode, too. No classic, but the basic situation -- that his writing isn't secret -- was a surprise, and I ended up liking most of the characters. Enjoyed the first ep more than either B-gata H-kei or Mitsudomoe. Yes, sense of humor is a very individual thing.

Further to what Guardian_Enzo said about the director, he certainly seems to be the potential weak link: Nawa Munenori (Otoboku, Nogizaka Haruka, KissxSis). The anime writer, on the other hand, has done a couple of shows I liked: Uetake Sumio (Kyoushiro to Towa no Sora, Kannazuki no Miko).
