(Half of one episode watched):|
Well, I think we can say that with this show a new low has been reached in anime. A record has been set for the most nauseating anime that nevertheless pretends to be funny and non-explicit enough to be broadcast to the general public on Japanese TV. The warning of 'intense sexual content' at the beginning came as a bit of a surprise, since while standards regarding what is acceptable in Japan regarding sex are somewhat looser than in the West, it still doesn't usually get all that explicit. After all, couples seldom even get married in anime. It also came as a warning that this show would have about a 1-in-10 chance of being of decent quality, since the number of anime which are both ecchi and genuinely good can probably be counted on the fingers of one hand. Why try to be good when the ecchi alone will guarantee that the show will be a modest success? Sure enough, IR was not funny at all. Am I supposed to laugh at the suggestion that one have shallow, carnal sex as often as possible, with no ambition other than to rate females of various races for the pleasure that can be derived from them? The character designs are very simple, of the sort which is typical of lighthearted comedies, which sort of made this show feel gross. It almost seemed to be saying that it would be OK to go fuck the nice, silly girls in those shows. I hope it doesn't lead to a new sub-genre, but I would describe IR as a sort of isekai porn. The plot was about as good as the comedy; somehow an angel girl (or are angels bisexual? It was confusing), Crimvael, is mistaken for just another horny guy. Oh man, this show is just jaw-droppingly bad. I quit after half an episode. I really do not want to know how this story works out, indeed, if I had to I would pay someone to keep that knowledge from me.
