Keiki Kiryu is a high school boy who, despite having many friends who are girls, is very desperate for a girlfriend. Well, he’s about to get his wish. Or is he?
Cinderella Dropped Her Panties!?
What an episode title for yet another Summer 2019 anime. While the abbreviated name is HenSuki, the full name is Kawaikereba Hentai demo Suki ni Natte Kuremasu ka?, or Would you love a pervert as long as she’s cute?. It seems this trend of long anime titles is going to continue. Anyways, let’s get to the synopsis.
Keiki Kiryu is desperate for a girlfriend. This problem seems to be exasperated by the fact that many of his friends at school are attractive girls. There’s Sayuki, the big breasted upperclassman, Yuika, the cute blonde underclassman, and Nanjo, the serious classmate. In addition, Keiki’s little sister is also an underclassman.
And all of these girls join Keiki in helping to clean the calligraphy club, which Sayuki operates. After the cleaning is done and everyone has gone home, Keiki goes back to the clubroom to find a love letter, and a.. pair of panties?! Better yet, the letter isn’t signed, so he doesn’t know who wrote the letter and left the panties!
After some interaction with everyone, and realizing he has reasons to suspect Sayuki, Yuika, and Nanjo, Keiki is at a crossroads as to who it could be. But after a brief date with Sayuki, Keiki garners the confidence to confront her. She tells him to meet her in the calligraphy clubroom the next day.
When he gets there, Sayuki confesses… that she wants to be his pet!
HenSuki is probably one of the more anticipated ecchi titles this season. Primarily because of the premise itself – Would you love a pervert as long as she’s cute? And I think that the premise will be enough to give us some good moments in the future. After all, it’ll be entertaining to see what Keiki does in reaction to Sayuki’s confession, plus who knows what other perverted qualities we’ll find in the girls as we go?
Unfortunately, this episode specifically felt fairly bland. Most of the episode consisted of Keiki going around seeing the girls and thinking “Could she be the Cinderella?”. It almost felt like an episode of slice of life.. although maybe this anime could turn out to be slice of life. There was a clear lack of ecchi content too, with only a bit at the very beginning in the form of Keiki’s dreams, and Sayuki at the end with her confession. It just didn’t feel like much really happened in 24 minutes, aside from Sayuki’s confession.
I’m not a fan of the art style for this anime either. It has a very faded look, and the characters don’t look sharp enough in my opinion. Just not a style I would choose for an ecchi anime, because of how dull it looks at times. I’d prefer more crisp imagery for my ecchi content.
Overall I’d say that this introductory episode in particular was a mixed bag. It was boring, but managed to introduce us to the core cast, and it’s clear that things are only going to get more interesting from here. And there wasn’t much fan service this episode, but there’s good potential for more of that in the future.
We’ll just have to wait and see how Keiki handles Sayuki next episode! Hopefully whatever happens gives us some good ecchi highlights to share with you all too!
