As an avid and lecherous fan of yuri anime and mangas, I had to watch this as soon as I heard of its release. A while back I posted an entry on Kurogane Kenn’s manga, Shoujo Sect, so if you do not know what Shoujo Sect is, check it out here. manga.
Innocent Lovers is a three episode anime adaption of the manga. This OVA is just what I’ve been waiting for. Pure yuri h anime is so rare; in fact, I have not seen any other one. That’s not to say that there aren’t girl on girl action in h anime, but most of them soon involve 3p or even worse, gang bang rapes, tentacles, or commonly dick chick actions (these are absolutely disgusting and no-nos). Anyway, for whatever reason, “yuri” h anime I have seen have always needed to throw in a package of some form in there, and I’m really glad there is one exception that caters to purists who would like to keep balls out of the court.
Some screencaps from episode 1
I love the roundish loli looking faces.
The two main characters are Momoko Naitou and Shinobu Honda. Honda is sort of a player in the school and has quite a posse of girls (mainly Kirin and Miya). Naitou is the class president type of character and tries to keep the school in order. While Naitou is the main character, episode one of the OVA focuses mainly on Miya’s involvements with Honda and the incestuous and sweet love between Chizuru and Shigure. This follows the manga quite closely, as Naitou does not participate very directly in most of the earlier chapters.
So far I’ve only seen the first episode. Now I’m just waiting excitedly for episode 2 and the fansubs to come out.
