About Fruit of Grisaia Season 1 Blu-ray

Fruit of Grisaia Season 1 contains episodes 1-13 of the anime directed by Tensho.

Yuji Kazami thought that all he wanted was to attend school like a normal teenager, but Mihama Academy is nothing like the places of education he's dreamed of. And it's not just that Mihama seems eerily like a prison. There are also only five other students, and all five of these girls seem to have special reasons for having been placed in this institution. Sachi Komine, who always wears a maid outfit and seems to be compelled to carry out any order given her. The unsettling Makina Irisu, whose parents are tied to Japan's shady underworld. Michiru Matsushima, a combative girl afflicted with dual personalities. Car and motorcycle obsessed Amane Suou. And Yumiko Sakaki, whose "welcome greeting" to Yuji involves the deadly use of a box cutter. Of course, Yuji himself has his own dark secrets, as one of his new fellow students may be the next deadly target on his own hit list in FRUIT OF GRISAIA!

Special Features: Clean Opening Animation, Clean Closing Animation.

confusing at first

by

The story behind this anime is definitely slow to start but once it gets going you wont be able to put it down. Definitely worth a watch.

Decent

by -

Visuals and voice acting were nice. The title is listed under "romance" for some reason. I can't recall anything in the series that qualified as actual romance. We do get some kiss scenes but It did not feel like there was any love or romantic interest behind them. Considering this title is based on a eroge this kinda irked me. I love lovey dovey romance. HAND HOLDING IS THE BESTTTTT! Totally didn't look up the game CG after watching this...

Ahem. The situations these characters are put through can be quite absurd at times. I can't really go into it without spoiling major plot points but the girls all come with EXTENSIVE emotional baggage... so much so that it gets a little silly. If you were to hand pick the 5 most unlucky schoolgirls in Japan and stick them in 1 room they'd still have nothing on the cast of Grisaia. At times you'll be rolling your eyes.

Even with it's shortcomings it's still worth a buy. Just don't take it too seriously.

Insane, but original and good

by -

This is a great series. I have even gone and bought the games for it as well. The series is very original. Each character is gone into pretty thoroughly, and each of them have crazy backgrounds. This is a harem anime but in an extremely odd sense. You've got 6 characters with crazy quirks and insane history. But, they all need each other and really grow into a kind of family.
Warning though, this is not for the feint of heart. The ending third of the season has some pretty gruesome parts to it. This is not your normal light n fluffy series. There is a lot of hardship and emotional flare ups in the series, but it all works out somehow. And the main guy (basically the only only guy) in the series is not a wimp. He is somewhat cold and calculated. He handles situations rather oddly because of his militaristic background. He finds himself caring and helping each of the other 5 girls that he goes to school with.

great anime but the visual novel is way better

by

Fruit of Grisaia is a great anime if you've never read the visual novel. The visual novel was over 60 hours long and had branching paths towards the end so the anime has a lot to cover in just 13 episodes while merging all the branched paths.
it does this pretty decently, there is a massive time skip that is never addressed so it goes unnoticed unless you've read the visual novel. since the a lot of character relationship development is skipped due to time constraints, some things feel very rushed.
I recommend getting it if it is on sale, and I recommend reading the visual novel if you want more of these characters.

Unusual, But Interesting Harem Title

by -

A teenage assassin, after saving the right person, ends up with an opportunity he never had: to attend a school like a normal kid. Except this school is basically one where girls with serious mental issues are dumped to keep them out of sight.

Most of the series involves our lead learning about the girls one after the other, and helping them overcome their problems - usually with some combination of military training and military-style action. Several of these problems are external after all. And he still has his own role in his organization to boot.

Frankly, the premise and presentation are just plain silly, and the issues many of the girls have are similarly over the top. Nonetheless, it's entertaining, and certainly different enough to stand out among harem shows adapted from Visual Novels.

If you're interested, it may indeed be worthwhile, but be advised that it mainly plays itself straight when it probably would have been better with tongue firmly planted in cheek.
