Casual Romance Club

Casual Romance Club/Koikura/Houkago Renai Club: Koi no Étude (more long ass fucking names and alternative titles) is a two episode OVA released in 1998, with the only two episodes being 31 minutes each. It’s based on the game by Libido. Apparently the pun was intended when they named it.

Episode one felt more like a slice of life anime than an actual hentai. I really like the way that group of friends interact with each other. Instead of them having some generic, lifeless and polite back and forth conversations like in most other anime/hentai, they prank, insult and make fun of each other in a humorous ways like real friends do. Even though I liked the characters, plot wise nothing much happened in this episode except for just Kotoro having sex with Misawa. It was the only H scene in this whole episode, but at least it was 5min long, had lots of good angles and acceptable animation quality …too bad it didn’t show anything explicit though.

Episode 2 had single fuck scene. It’s really a shame to have so many interesting girls and yet only two of them have actual sex scenes. Maybe they planned on making more episodes of Koikura/Houkago Renai Club: Koi no Étude/Casual Romance Club, but canceled them when this “hentai” wasn’t doing so well. It’s basically just a two episode long slice of life anime about guys having romantic relationships with girls. What I actually like though, is that each guy has their own different love interest side story. Instead of just having one one generic, boring, poorly written harem protagonist that gets all the pussy by doing pretty much nothing.

I could not find the DVD for both episodes. However, I found the website streaming service that has it. Click the banner below to join them.
