Hello everyone and welcome to the Henneko weekly review! I'm Takashichea, a wiki editor. I'm promoting the Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat Discussion thread that Daniel and I created at the Community Directory: Discussion Threads, Lists, Projects & More! hub.

Be sure to check out that.

To be honest, I'm embarrassed to write about Henneko, but I'm doing to show you guys and gals one of the weirdest fan service anime series this season. I love and hate Henneko at the same time. Yes, it's a cute and funny show, but watching it makes me feel like a pedobear. I would love it watch here at Anime Vice with you guys and gals at 's Anime Vice Chat!!!. It's better to watch a fan service show with company. Trust me on this.

Here is the synopsis:

It is about a second year high school boy named Yoto Yokodera who is always thinking about sex. However, no one seems to acknowledge that he is a pervert. One day, he visits a cat statue that he heard can grant wishes. He prays that he can express dirty things at any time. Then, he meets a girl named Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi who also made her wish.

I'm going to make this review short since I don't have much time. Forgive, I'm going to rushed through this.

Episode 1

Good

  • It's a cute series for those who love the character design in the show. It's faithful to the light novel designs. It screams Moe.
  • Depends on your preferences, you got Tsukiko, a quiet yet adorable girl, while you got Azusa, a tsundere yet cute girl. You might like Tsukiko or Azusa. It's the comedic interactions between Yoto, the perverted prince, and these two heroines.
  • Oh, I forgot Tsukushi, the steel king. If you're into femdom and big boobs, you'll love her.

Episode 2

Good

  • For fans of Azusa Azuki, you'll love this episode. She comes in a puppy maid cafe cosplay and a brides gown.
  • Yoto's strategy of getting Azusa Azuki to give up her facade is weird since he stalks her. Their little date scene was great.

Weird

  • Azusa Azuki might hate Yoto, but you can tell she likes him.

Episode 3

Good

  • The episode reveals more about Azusa and Tsukiko.
  • Tsukiko's dream is to be a kindergarten teacher while Azusa has the Ojou-sama facade because she is a shy person deep inside.

So far, Henneko is a character driven anime series. The objective so far is to find Tsukiko's facade. Yoto and Azusa have reach some closure.

Episode 4 - 6

Since I'm all out of time, I'm going to combine everything. Episodes 4, 5, and 6 just builds up on Tsukushi. You can see Tsukushi and Tsukiko have some issues. While Tsukiko believes her older sister is distancing herself, Tsukushi still loves her younger sister. She just couldn't express her feelings. One of funny moments in these last few episodes was that Tsukushi wanted to go to Michigan because gay marriage is allowed. When Tsukushi says that she wants to marry her younger sister, Tsukiko reminds her that they are siblings. Meanwhile, Yoto finds out his home has disappeared and relocated in Tsukiko's shack near her home.

Fan service gets absurd in this episode. You got a shower scene where Yoto flashes his jewels at the poor sisters. Then, Yoto gets to see Tsukiko naked twice so far. Funny moments arise when Tsukushi still believes Yoto's lies about having a twin brother and the time when Azusa makes a bad wish. For fans of Azusa and Tsukushi, you will enjoy this episode.

I have problems posting GIFs to show you how absurd these fan service are.

In the end, this show is for fans who can tolerate fan service and love cute characters. It's not for everyone especially the young 'uns.

Just shoot me, guys. This took a lot of balls to write. I feel I'm reinforcing the idea that Anime Vice community is a full of weird and creepy fans. However, not all anime series are like Henneko.

You just got to find an anime series that fits your tastes.

I've seen the first episode of this series and I didn't like it. That's really not surprising since I had low expectations coming into the series.

@Acura_Max:

Yeah, I agree with you. It was hard for me to stomach at first.

I'm not sure how to continue since I'm damn embarrassed to blog about Henneko.

I know you're dedicated to this site, but really, you don't need to do this just for the sake of someone reviewing it. Unless you're secretly being paid, in which case go nuts.

@DocHaus:

Yeah, you're right. I'm way over my head. Thanks, DocHaus.

@DocHaus:

I did drop the show. I wished I did the same for another ecchi project, but my motto in the wiki projects, finish what you started, make me go through the garbage.

By the way, I changed the GIF from the boobs butter to the curl ups since it was bothering me.
