Gokujou Drops Review

Life at Ohotori Girls Academy

Gokujou♥Drops (極上♥ドロップス) is a shoujo ai erotica manga, much like Citrus. It’s only three volumes long, so it’s pretty short. But, it’s the first manga by Hajime Mikuni to be more than one volume.

The series follows Komari Maezono, a girl who transfers to Ohotori Girls Academy. But, since she transfers in at an odd time of year (of course), there aren’t any dorms available. That shouldn’t be too much of an issue since apartments are also available for students. However, Komari’s father is only allowing her to attend the school as long as she isn’t living alone.

For that reason, Komari really needs a spot to open up in one of the dorms. Luckily for her, there’s a potential spot in the most prestigious of the school’s dorms — the Paraiso Yakata. Ohtori Girls Academy is already a school for rich girls. But, the Paraiso Yakata is where the richest of the rich live.

So, what’s the deal with this potential spot in the dorms for Komari? Well, there’s not exactly an open spot. Instead, one of the girls who lives there, Yukio Himemiya, makes Komari an offer. If Komari agrees to be her slave, she’ll allow Komari to live with her.

For the most part, being Yukio’s slave is a pretty simple task. Komari’s expected to wake Yukio up for school, carry her things, and help her out in other basic ways. And, on top of that, she’ll work as the dorm’s maid.

Since this is the only way Komari can attend Ohtori, and since she likes cleaning anyway, this isn’t a bad deal. But, as I mentioned, there’s not really an open spot in the dorm. Yukio’s room only has one bed. So, Komari will be sleeping with her new master.

Meet the Girls of the Paraiso Yakata

Komari Maezono is the newest girl living in the dorm and also the one from the least prestigious family. Though, that’s not saying too much, as her family is still well-off. At any other school, Komari would be seen as the rich girl. It’s only at Ohtori, and especially within the Paraiso Yakata dorm, that this isn’t the case.

Other than Komari, there are six girls living in the Paraiso Yakata dorm. The first is, of course, Yukio “Hime” Himemiya. She’s considered the school’s idol. Despite being a first-year herself, all the first-year girls admire her.

Next is Asami Fujie, the head of the dorm and a member of the student council. I assume she’s a third-year student. But, she could also be a second-year. While Asami seems normal at first, she actually has a reputation for seducing first-year students.

Erika Yanagi is a second-year student who leads the culture club council. I guess she’s technically the most normal of the girls in the dorm. Her character trait is simply that she’s manipulative. And, like most of the girls in the dorm, she’s also attracted to other girls.

Sai Yoshikawa is the shut-in of the dorm. She’s the head of the library. But, she doesn’t leave her room very often and attends class even less. Instead, she prefers to spend her time on her computer. I think Sai is also the only girl in the dorm who doesn’t make a pass at Komari.

Finally, there are the Kunikida twins, Miya and Maya. Miya is the more feminine of the two, though, I wouldn’t call Maya a tomboy by any means. These two sisters are in a sexual relationship with each other and want Komari to be a part of it.

Unbecoming of a Prestigious Family

Let’s get into the real review. Is Gokujou Drops any good? Yes. But, there are some things you should consider when starting it. First of all, it’s an erotica series, but not a hentai. It has sex, unlike Citrus. But, it’s not all about sex the way Shoujo Sect is.

I bring this up because if you’re looking for hentai, this isn’t going to give you what you want. And, if you’re looking for a wholesome slice of life series, this isn’t going to give you that, either. It’s somewhere in between.

The art style and the way the characters act are also very “shoujo manga.” You’re not going to find super high-detailed drawings. Instead, a lot of the art is “light” and “fluffy.” And, Komari’s character, in particular, feels like a generic shoujo manga protagonist. If you don’t like shoujo manga, you might not like this as much.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the plot of this series isn’t deep. It’s a very generic plot that other (more recent) series have done better. For example, I think Yuu and Touko’s relationship in Bloom into You feels like a better version of Komari and Yukio’s relationship here.

These relationships aren’t exactly the same. But, they’re close enough. They both have a power dynamic. In Bloom into You, Touko is older than Yuu and uses that to influence Yuu. In Gokujou Drops, there’s the power imbalance of Yukio controlling Komari’s living situation.

Another example would be when Yukio’s family tries to set her up with arranged suitors. They don’t think a same-sex relationship is becoming of someone of their family’s status. This is very similar to something that happens in Citrus. And, surprise, Citrus did it better.

Final Thoughts

In the end, I gave Gokujou Drops a 7/10. It was a good read — worse than Bloom into You and Citrus, but better than Shoujo Sect. I’d say it’s about on par with I Can’t Believe I Slept With You! as far as yuri manga go.

Shoujo Sect Review

Shoujo Sect Review

Shoujo Sect manga cover art
Shoujo Sect

Just (Gay) Girls Being (Gay) Girls

Shoujo Sect (少女セクト) is an 18+ shoujo ai series. And by 18+, I mean it’s a hentai. But, I actually didn’t know it was a hentai when I added the manga to my list. I thought it was simply erotica, like Citrus.

You can imagine my surprise when, very quickly, I discovered my mistake. However, the Shoujo Sect manga is very short — only 16 chapters. So, I figured I’d continue reading it and then watch the anime adaptation, as well. That’s right, today’s review is a double feature.

Since the manga is short, the anime is too. It’s a three-episode OVA called Shoujo Sect: Innocent Lovers. Why did they add a subtitle onto the OVA? I’m not sure. I guess it’s to make it easier to differentiate between the anime and manga when searching online.

Anyway, let’s get into the main premise of the series. There are girls at an all-girls school. And, guess what? All the girls at this all-girls school are gay — even the one teacher who makes an appearance. What a great and original idea.

Okay, so as I said, I first read the manga version of the series. It was pretty decent. The sex scenes are good, which as you might expect, is important for a series like this. But, I found it pretty hard to keep track of the characters. I still don’t know who the dark-haired girl on the cover of Volume 1 is supposed to be.

The anime fixed this issue with the manga. It was way easier to understand who was who when everything was in color. And, I’d say that the sex scenes are even better in the anime. You know, because the anime adds movement and sound into the mix.

Momoko vs. Shinobu

There’s a bit more to this yuri series than “girls being girls.” It also has quite a bit of drama and a shockingly complex web of interpersonal relationships. This web has two centers: Momoko Naitou and Shinobu Handa. They’re the ones who everyone else is connected to.

Alright, let’s begin untangling the web. Shinobu and Momoko were childhood friends. Now that they’re in high school, Shinobu has a crush on Momoko. However, Momoko doesn’t remember Shinobu from their childhood. This is the start of the drama.

To make up for the lack of affection she’s receiving from Momoko, Shinobu starts her own harem. You know, as you do. The first girl in Shinobu’s harem is Kirin Suwabe, a dark-skinned girl who offers to be Shinobu’s maid. Then, Shinobu and Kirin bring Maya Enjouji into the fold, creating a three-way relationship.

Momoko’s side of the web is a bit more monogamous. But, it’s also the side that’s more taboo. Momoko is in a relationship with her teacher, Hayato Kyouko. That’s a spicy relationship right there, but it’s not all. Momoko’s friend, Chizuru Komai, has a crush on her older sister, Shigure. And, thanks to Momoko, the two of them get together.

There are some other minor characters whose names I don’t remember, as well. For example, I think there’s a pair of twins who have something going on with Maya. But, those are all the main characters.

With that said, there’s one more character I need to mention. Sayuri Ookami is a third-year student who I only think comes into the series toward the end. She wants to make Shinobu hers — she doesn’t want to join Shinobu’s harem. And, she’s the reason why the two sides of the web come back together.

The Best Part of the Manga

There was one thing that the manga did infinitely better than the anime. But, before I get to it, I need to do a little build-up.

If Momoko is in a relationship with Hayato, how does she reconnect with Shinobu? Well, after Momoko and Hayato spend a night together, Hayato coughs up blood, collapses, and is out of the picture. She doesn’t die. However, she’s no longer around and that leaves Momoko all alone.

It’s around this time that Momoko begins to remember who Shinobu is.

Now, let’s bring Sayuri, the upperclassman, into the story. Sayuri traps Shinobu in a room and sexually assaults her. Momoko discovers this happening and saves Shinobu by sending Sayuri away. And then, it happens. Momoko snaps — and this is the single best scene of the entire series (in the manga).

After catching Sayuri assaulting Shinobu, Momoko couldn’t let Sayuri walk away. She grabs a fire extinguisher and uses it to bash Sayuri in the head, in a scene I never saw coming. I guess Momoko had a lot of pent-up anger after losing her older lover and seeing her childhood friend hurt.

Okay, but how did the anime ruin this iconic scene? I guess the team working on the OVA didn’t think Momoko’s attempted murder of Sayuri was very hot. They wanted their adaptation to be sexy, not crazy. So, instead of using a fire extinguisher, Momoko only punches Sayuri in the face.

Since I watched the anime right after reading the manga, I was looking forward to this scene. The plot of this series isn’t good — as you can likely tell from how I’ve described it in this review. It’s a hentai plot. But, that scene made all the drama worth it.

Final Thoughts

I ended up giving the Shoujo Sect manga a 6/10 and the anime a 7/10. Despite altering the best scene and making it worse than it was in the manga, the anime is still better (read: hotter). As a whole, though, I enjoyed Shoujo Sect. It’s a nice yuri series.

Toradora! anime series cover art

Series Overview

Toradora! (とらドラ!) is one of the most iconic romantic comedy anime out there. Even if you haven’t seen the series yourself, chances are that you’re still aware of it. Its 25 episodes aired from 2008 to 2009, so it’s been around for a while now.

To start off this review, let’s take a look at the title: Toradora! The title comes from the names of the two protagonists, Taiga and Ryuuji. The characters’ names and the way they’re written in the title are flipped (Japanese/English).

Tora (虎) is the Japanese word for tiger, while Taiga is the Japanese pronunciation of the English word. And Ryuu (竜) is the Japanese word for dragon, while Dora is the Japanese pronunciation of the start of the English word.

Moving on to the plot, Taiga and Ryuuji find themselves working together in an attempt to set each other up with their respective crushes. Taiga loves Ryuuji’s friend Kitamura, and Ryuuji loves Taiga’s friend Minori. But, as you can probably figure out, they end up falling for each other instead.

Overall, Toradora! is a very generic rom-com in that it doesn’t shift away from the mold at all. Everything that you expect a rom-com to have, Toradora! has. But, that’s not a bad thing because it does most of those things better than a lot of more modern anime in the genre.

For example, I think the supporting cast of this series (the characters outside of the main five) is a lot better than in newer anime like Horimiya. Part of that is because Toradora! is two cours instead of one, and part of it is because the supporting characters aren’t forced to have a dedicated episode or arc.

They simply exist in the world as characters who aren’t the focus, but who still have their own unique personalities.

Main Characters

Ryuuji Takasu is the male protagonist of the series. He lives with his mother, Yasuko, and their pet bird, Inko. Ryuuji does all of the cooking and cleaning, which also happens to be 99% of his personality. I don’t think he’s all that interesting.

Next door to Ryuuji lives Taiga Aisaka, also known as the Palm-Top Tiger due to both her size and name. Taiga lives alone in an apartment, being estranged from both of her parents who are divorced. Her personality revolves around her explosive temper.

While I said that Ryuuj isn’t very interesting, he’s still probably the best male character in the series. The only other real contender would be his best friend Yuusaku Kitamura. However, Kitamura is pretty boring as well, simply being a quirky student council vice president.

Ami Kawashima

Minori Kushieda is my least favorite of the main characters. She’s the obligatory sporty girl who’s also a simpleton. This has never been one of my favorite character tropes. And on top of that, she goes through a whole depression phase that I didn’t find particularly well done.

Now, I’ve saved the best for last, because Ami Kawashima is definitely the best girl of the series. She’s a teen model who fakes her personality. That doesn’t make her sound good, but over the course of the series, I’d say that she’s the one who develops the most.

Of course, there are also good supporting characters as well. My particular favorites are Yasuko (Ryuuji’s mom), Yuri “Yuri-chan-sensei” Koigakubo (the teacher), and Sumire Kanou (the student council president.

In fact, one of my favorite scenes involved Yuri being called a “single thirty-something” by one of her students in response to them being told that the class trip was being changed.

Episodes 24 & 25

Generally speaking, I think Toradora! is a good anime. But I also kind of wish we could all collectively forget that the final two episodes of the series happened. Episodes 24 and 25 represent a very sharp break from the previous 23 episodes.

Obviously, I’m going to spoil the end of the series now. So if you don’t want to be spoiled, skip down to the conclusion.

The choice Ryuuji and Taiga make at the end of the series comes out of nowhere. Was the series leading up to them dating? Yes. Was the series leading up to them running away and getting married while still in high school because they don’t want to fill out a piece of paper about their futures? No.

Ryuuji doesn’t want to go to college because his family is poor and he doesn’t want his mom overworking herself to pay for it. He would go if he could also help pay for it, but she wants him to focus on studying, not working. And so, he runs away.

Meanwhile, Taiga runs away just because filling out a piece of paper is too much work. I don’t think Ryuuji really has a reason to run away. But Taiga literally has no reason for doing so. She just doesn’t want to fill out the paper that says if she plans to go to college or not.

And on top of all that, why do they need to get married when they run away? I’m pretty sure that doesn’t solve anything. Like, I get it if they want to get married because they love each other. But it really seemed like they thought getting married would save them from something.

Oh, and then they don’t end up getting married, Taiga moves away, and everything goes back to normal. What was the point of those two episodes?


I’m going to give Toradora! a 7/10 despite the fact that I don’t think the ending was good. And even if we pretend that the ending never happened, it would still be a 7/10 — just a higher 7/10. It’s not as if the ending ruined the series.

As for the OPs and EDs, they’re all good. But if you want to know my favorites, they’re OP 1 and ED 1. The second OP has some better animation, but I like the song and visual style of OP 1 more. And I like the song of ED 1 way more than ED 2. It reminds me of the Tamako Market ED.

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2

Season Overview

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 (Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch R2 / コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュ 続編) is the second season of Code Geass. I reviewed the first season way back in 2018, and I’ve only just recently gotten around to watching the second. So naturally, there were a lot of things I forgot.

However, one thing I did remember from the first season was how it ended. It ended with a standoff between Lelouch and Suzaku, with a gunshot ringing out after the screen cut to black. This was a great ending for that season because of the suspense it left the viewer with.

Unfortunately, R2 does away with that suspense by effectively retconning the end of the first season. It wasn’t literally retconned, but it was revealed that neither of them was shot, Lelouch’s memories were sealed, and the series continues on as if that scene didn’t happen. The scene is still canon, it just no longer matters.

I’m also pretty sure that there’s a year gap between the first season and R2. Nothing much happened during this gap though because, without Zero (Lelouch) to lead them, the Black Knights’ rebellion came to a standstill. It’s not until Lelouch regains his memories (this was obviously going to happen so it’s not a spoiler) that things pick back up.

Once the rebellion starts rolling again, it’s back to business as usual. Lelouch is using people as pawns and playing 5-D chess with them to achieve his goals. This can be entertaining at some points, but I definitely wasn’t as much of a fan of it this time around compared to three years ago.

I guess that’s to be expected though, considering I feel the same way about Death Note. I liked that series more years ago than I do now.

Things I Don’t Understand

From here on out there are going to be major spoilers for the series. If you don’t want everything to be spoiled, including the final episode, I suggest you stop reading at this point.

Now, many of the things I didn’t quite understand are probably my own fault for waiting 2.5 years to watch the second season. I’m sure there were a lot of things that would have made sense if I had just watched the seasons back to back. And one of those things is how people get Geass in the first place.

I understand that Lelouch received his Geass from C.C. and the emperor received his from V.V. That much is clear. But was it ever explained how the other people got their Geass? What about Rolo and Jeremiah? And I think there was some other random Geass user in the first season.

C.C. eating pizza

The next thing I don’t understand definitely isn’t my fault. Why does everyone trust Lelouch so much? There were multiple times when Lelouch outright betrayed people and then they forgave him and trusted him again just because he said he wouldn’t do it again (he did).

Lelouch betraying people and not even trying to hide the fact that he was betraying them became such a major recurring event that I could no longer suspend my disbelief when people trusted him.

There was also the whole thing about Suzaku nuking a city that infuriated me to no end. Nina built the weapon and repeatedly told Suzaku to use it. Then once he used it, suddenly she was shocked by the damage it caused. You can’t be shocked that your weapon of mass destruction caused mass destruction. Oh, and then Nunnally somehow wasn’t vaporized even though she totally should have been.

End of Lelouch

Honestly, I wasn’t much of a fan of R2. I liked the first season back when I watched it. But R2 just seemed to have so many contradictions and unnatural developments that I couldn’t get properly invested in the story or most of the characters. That is, until the end.

The end of Code Geass is often considered one of the best endings to any anime. And now that I’ve experienced it, even though I already knew what was going to happen since this is an anime from 2008, I can see why. The fact that I knew what was coming didn’t matter — it was still a great ending.

At the end of the series, Lelouch becomes the ruler of the world, only to be killed during his victory parade by Suzaku dressed as Zero. This was all planned beforehand by Lelouch and Suzaku — probably around three-quarters of the way into the season.

Zero killing Lelouch from the anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2
Zero killing Lelouch

Why does this ending work so well? Because it resolves a lot, but not all, of the loose ends of the series. I mean, I don’t remember what happened to C.C. in the end, for example. But I also don’t really care about her anyway.

This ending allows Suzaku to get his revenge on Lelouch, it allows Lelouch to create a peaceful world for Nunnally, it removes the perceived antagonist of the world from existence, and it restores Zero as the champion of the people. And it does all of this without feeling like a Deus ex machina because we already knew that there was some agreement between Lelouch and Suzaku.

Honestly, I think R2 is worth watching specifically for the ending. Sure, the rest wasn’t that good, in my opinion. But the ending makes up for it, which isn’t something I often say.


Overall, I think Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 is a 7/10. That’s lower than my score of the first season. But I get the feeling that if I rewatched the first season I would lower my score for it.

As for the OPs and EDs, I didn’t think any of them were that special. I don’t remember which of the OPs it was, but one of them had a poorly drawn/animated horse that I thought was funny. And all I remember about the EDs is that they had nice art, but there wasn’t anything else to them.

Kiss x Sis

Kiss x Sis

Kiss x Sis anime series cover art
Kiss x Sis


Kiss x Sis (キス×シス) is another ecchi, harem series. However this time around there are two main girls, and they just so happen to be the protagonist’s twin step-sisters. Aside from that though, it follows the same route that most ecchi, harem series do.

There are the obligatory beach episodes, obligatory hot springs episodes, obligatory pool episodes, etc. But Kiss x Sis isn’t an anime with ecchi in it, it’s a full-fledged ecchi anime, and sometimes feels like it should have just been a hentai.

In fact, some hentai actually have more a fleshed out plot than Kiss x Sis does. In this series the entire plot is that the protagonist is trying to study for entrance exams and his sisters are competing with each other for his love. That’s it. There isn’t anything else, which is why there’s so much room for ecchi content.

This series is also split up into two parts, a TV series and an OVA series, each made up of 12 episodes for a total of 24. Usually OVAs are extra episodes that simply add on to the story of the TV series, but that’s not the case this time around. The TV and OVA series are all one “narrative.”

And watching this series isn’t as easy as watching the TV series, then the OVA, or vice versa. Instead you have to constantly swap back and forth, meaning a viewing order is necessary. So if you want to experience this gem of an anime, here’s the order in which you should watch:

  • OVA episodes 1-3
  • TV episodes 1-9
  • OVA episode 4
  • TV episodes 10-12
  • OVA episodes 5-12

Keep in mind that although I numbered the OVA episodes 1-12, technically they’re numbered 0-11. Either way, there are 12 of them so you’ll be able to figure it out.

TV vs. OVA

While it’s a bit strange for there to be both a TV and OVA series for the same anime that are combined in this way, what’s even stranger is that they have different tones. Since the TV series is meant for, well, TV it’s much more tame than the OVA series.

This is what I meant when I mentioned that it sometimes feels like it should have been a hentai instead of an ecchi series. While the TV series can definitely get pretty raunchy, it’s no match for the content of the OVA series. And for this reason, the OVA series is far superior.

Interestingly, however, even the OVA series isn’t actually uncensored. Yes, you will see a lot more, and the things you’ll be seeing are a lot more explicit, but it’s still censored. That said, the censoring isn’t done by either random beams of light or areas covered by shadow, so it still looks natural.

But if the OVA is still censored, then how is it really superior to the TV series? It all comes down to the types of things shown in the OVA series that make it so great. While the TV series is fairly tame, anything goes in the OVA series which actually makes it pretty funny.

From the situations the protagonist finds himself in to the scene composition, there’s a lot to love about the OVA series. And if you’re anything like me you’ll find yourself saying, “ah yes, I too have been in this situation many times.” I mean, who hasn’t had one of their classmates pee on their head? This series is full of relatable scenarios like that.


Keita Suminoe is our protagonist. He’s a third-year middle school student (the equivalent of 9th grade in the US) and is studying for his high school entrance exams. He doesn’t really have much personality (as is the case with any good self-insert character), but over the course of the series we see him get a bit more confident in himself.

Ako and Riko are Keita’s older, twin step-sisters. Ako is the one with shorter hair, while Riko has the longer hair typically put up in a ponytail. Aside from their hair, the only other difference in their physical appearances are their bust sizes; Riko is larger than Ako.

And while Riko’s physical appearance is more my type, she’s also better character-wise as well. Ako is the more mature of the two and is seen as the more reliable of the sisters. Riko, on the other hand, is the wild card who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go after it.

Now that we’ve established that Riko is the better of the two sisters, who’s the best other girl? Without a doubt, it has to be Mikazuki Kiryuu. While Ako and Riko are both one year older than Keita, Mikazuki is one year younger than him.

Much like Riko, Mikazuki is fairly straightforward about what she wants. She’s also definitely the cutest of the girls in this series both from character design and personality perspectives. Mikazuki also has an older sister of her own, Yuuzuki Kiryuu.

Not only is Yuuzuki the older sister of Mikazuki, but she’s also the homeroom teacher of Ako and Riko. Yuuzuki sees Keita as a problem child who is corrupting the girls he comes in contact with, especially his own sisters. Little does she know that it’s actually all the girls who are corrupting Keita.

It’s unfortunate that Mikazuki and Yuuzuki don’t get all that much screen time because I think they’d probably be the best characters if they did. Yes, even better than Riko which pains me to say.

The final, and worst, girl of the series is Miharu Mikuni. Her personality is bad, her hair is bad, and the role she plays in the series is bad. Basically she was put into the series for people who have a particular fetish, and while it’s funny because of the situations it comes up in, it’s not for me.

Mikuni is also the same age as Keita and is almost like the Tsubasa Hanekawa of this series. She’s the smart girl with glasses and big boobs. And if you know my feelings regarding Hanekawa, then my dislike for Mikuni makes sense.


Overall I’d give Kiss x Sis an 8/10, 7/10 for the TV series and 9/10 for the OVA. I know that those ratings might seem pretty high for a series like this, but it was extremely enjoyable to watch, especially since I was watching with someone else and we were commenting on it the whole time.

But regardless of whether you watch this series alone or with other people, it’s clear that the OVA is the standout portion of the anime as a whole. No matter what reason you have for watching this anime, the OVA will deliver better than the TV series every time.
