Kuro to Kin no Akanai Kagi is based on an adult otome game and is a despicable piece of shit that shouldn’t be viewed by anyone. There, that’s all you need to know. Goodbye and enjoy your life not having seen this garbage. … What, you still want to know more? Fine, but don’t tell me I didn’t warn you. Story Kanade is a total recluse, living alone with her brother Ikuto (hey, don’t worry, they’re not related by blood, so you don’t have to feel all grossed out later!), not even able to leave the safety of her own room. Why, you ask? God knows why, but the story demands it, so shush. One day she finally decides to venture into the outside world, where she meets a hair stylist who fixes her up for free, because that’s totally not creepy or anything. Nothing as romantic as casual facial scarring And what do you know, she turns out to actually be a total beauty. After that, she bumps into a former classmate who has to be one of the most obnoxious flirts ever and they somehow end up walking home together. Her brother sees them, gets jealous and boy, does it only go downhill from there. You see, this OVA adapted the one route in the otome game where you get together with Ikuto.  And that route is apparently built entirely on sexual assault. Because nothings says “I love you” more than almost raping someone and then guilt tripping them into a relationship. The amount of idiocy that lead to the ending can not be comprehended by sane minds. Trust me, I tried and failed miserably. At this point it might also be a good idea to mention that there are a couple of sex scenes in this show. Not the ‘slow transition to dampened windows, suggestive imagery’ kind either. No delicate parts are shown, but expect some boobs, naked butts and thrusting action. It’s basically just one clear dick-into-vagina visual away from being a hentai. And don’t forget that they’re technically brother and sister. Incest wincest, amirite? There also seems to be some time travel or magic involved, but fuck explaining that. Stories don't need to make any sense, obviously. Animation Lazy and totally generic. The characters designs are like those in any other otome game adaptation. There is little actual animation as the show consists mostly of panning shots and quite a few still frames with people talking over them. At least the boobs were very  bouncy. Budget well spent. Sound I can’t remember the background music at all. The voice-acting was okay, not spectacular or anything. They actually got some pretty nice voice-actors to do the roles. So if you’re a fan of Satoshi Hino or Kousuke Toriumi, you might be able to sit through this OVA. Might. I still wouldn’t recommend it. Characters Ho boy, is Ikuto the biggest prick ever. He’s abusive, overly jealous and very possessive. Believe it or not, otome game producers, telling a girl she can’t talk or even look at another guy is not the epitome of romance. Hard to believe, huh. His characterization was pretty inconsistent throughout the story as well. What do you want him to be, director? An innocent and shy boy with a rather unhealthy obsession with his sister? Or a total asshole who has no qualms with raping said sister? You can’t keep switching personalities between scenes and expect us to somehow care for your character. Look at that smug face; someone needs to ram a cactus up his ass Not that our MC is any better. Reverse harem protagonists are bland by default, but Kanade is not only completely devoid of any kind of personality, she also does incredibly fucking stupid things. No, girl, the problem is not that you rejected his feelings after he tried to rape you, it's that he fucking tried to rape you. Dear heavens me, never has anyone missed to point so facepalmingly hard. It’d be pretty sad if it weren’t so damn idiotic. The rest of the cast also consists of annoying douchenozzles. Because, you know, having likeable guys in an otome game would be like having the ending of Neon Genesis Evangelion make actual sense. There’s the hair stylist with no sense of personal boundaries and stalker-like tendencies, the former classmate who can’t seem to take no for an answer, the female friend who is a total bitch for no reason… And well there was also a teacher and another friend. Sadly enough they didn’t get enough screentime to come off as douchebags, but I’m sure I would have hated them as well. Overall Pretty much how I feel after watching this I feel like I didn’t word my disgust enough in this review, so let me reiterate. There is nothing redeemable about this anime. Kuro to Kin no Akanai Kagi only knows how to be either stupid or downright offensive. Rape is super okay, guys! It’ll totally make her realise her subconscious feelings for you! Assault her a bit and she’ll definitely fall in love with you! Quality logic! No. Just no. Fuck this. Don’t watch it if you have any sense of moral or if you simply like your anime to not be complete and utter tripe.
