Preview: Episode 1 of The Fruit of Grisaia
The girls are cute, so I'm just gonna give it a go! Pretty sure it won't be my type of anime but we'll see!
I've tried to write this without any spoilers, but there might still be some! Be careful, but also don't worry too much because I've only seen the first episode!

Thoughts Before Starting

There's gonna be a lot of panty shots and boobs, aren't there? That's all I know about this. That and that it's a harem anime. Here we go!

Anime Details

Title: The Fruit of Grisaia (Grisaia no Kajitsu)
Japanese Title: グリザイアの果実
Episodes: 13 (Season 1 only)

Initial Impressions

Well, I don't think this is a normal school at all, but I don't think I'm supposed to. I'll be honest when I say that the characters all seem pretty cliche to me. They have the standard looks and the standard personalities to match them, don't you think?
I thought so....but then Yuuji started making fun of tsundere and suddenly this anime was parodying the tropes that it also personifies? Suddenly I was a bit more interested, but things still seemed to be pretty standard for the relationships going on.
I like Yuuji seems very cold, but also I have a feeling that that coldness has a lot to do with his profession, don't you think? Probably. Maybe. I have a lot of questions.
But DANG I was so not into this, but then I got to the last like 5 minutes!!! And while it was obvious that Sakaki was going to be the girl of the serious, I wasn't expecting A) her to be so interesting B) her to try to kill him 3) a lot of sudden info on the past?! The teasers about his family and people knowing more about him than we realize was really interesting, too.
There's definitely a lot that we don't know, and I want to find out! So many secrets, so many things going on that I don't know about. That half-naked serious conversation definitely make me realize that this anime wasn't going to be as typical as it seemed like it would be.

Overall Episode Impressions:

Visuals: 7
Animation: 6
Sound design: 6
Storyboard: 8
World/setting: 7
Character designs: 7
OP + ED: 7
Entertainment: 7
Voice acting: 7

Am I Going to Continue?

To be honest, I wasn't that amused until I got the end part where it suddenly got all weird & looking at the past & mysterious. And then I decided I needed to know more and watched episode 2 XD

Anybody else like this anime?

@hikaymm I wouldn't lol but I don't want to stop you. The first season finishes up well and the second season is a different story.

To be fair, it starts slow but this anime is not what it seems to be. I think both seasons were great including the OVA that connects both seasons. IMO a little bit underrated and it does have that wow factor (or at least that wtf factor)

@hikaymm Hey how you doing~ and yeah I understand why you dropped it but I do believe its worth your time. The first season is all about the girls and the second season is all about the protagonist while the OVA links both seasons. Its a slow start but believe me anime can be deceiving sometimes.
