Imagine the premise of any harem-themed hentai series, but then imagine that the protagonist of the series just isn’t interested in banging any of the women who are after him, no matter how obvious they make it that they want to sleep with him. That’s Hensuki in a nutshell.
The show follows the misadventures of a fairly straight-laced protagonist, Keiki Kiryuu, as he tries to figure out just who left him a love letter (and a pair of neatly folded white panties) in his club room. Instead of asking any of his friends directly, however, he just kind of tries to trick them into telling him that they did it or just prove it by digging for evidence that he’s not sure exists. This method of investigation leads to him discovering that all his female friends are perverts in their own way.
The story is funny but simple and predictable from the get-go. The characters really make this anime worth watching, and even though Keiki is uninterested in the advances of all his friends, there is a good amount of funny cringe that comes from his silly attempts at searching for the writer of his unsigned love letter.
To be completely honest, the show kept me watching because of the fan service and comedy; not much else. Keiki is somewhat frustrating to watch in most situations and, admittedly, some of the girls seem to be (probably lewdly) straddling the border between over-the-top creepy and straight-up rapist material.
I do have to say, though, despite my love for harem themes, it was kind of heart-warming to see Keiki be so dedicated to wanting a relationship based on love, rather than the fetish-based relationships his friends want.
Finally, the art is pretty; but not mind-blowing, and the music in the show was barely noticeable and hardly memorable.
If you don’t mind crude fetish humor, it’s a decent watch if you’ve got nothing else to go for, but if you’re looking for something with fan service and an exciting story from your Funimation subscription, you’re probably better off watching “Keijo!!!!!!!!” instead.
