Been reading the manga.. and this is definitely in that Scums Wish category for me. I don't know if I'm "enjoying" it but I'm definitely hooked on it. The quality in the PV is decent enough and it looks like it may have an actual budget which is something I was worried about. Still not really sold but I know I'm going to watch it.

Ugh.. Well, it's looking like each episode is only scheduled for a 10 minute air time. That's really disappointing. A shorter run time can work well for some series but given that this is a fairly plot twisty story based property I'm not convinced this will be one of those cases.

Honestly, that isn't looking super good to me. The art and animation quality is only decent (though it's a little hard to tell with that scratchy visual effect over a large portion of the trailer. I'm also not feeling that song at all.

I can't say I will likely enjoy this. I already dislike NTR as a fetish. I can appreciate a good story with said elements than one played for erotica, but preview wise, the peach haired girl is one of those "weak willed" types that has guilt but otherwise, never changes till the circumstances arises, and honestly, that is just annoying. Why feel guilt but not act on it? Why apologize if you are never going to change? I really can't sympathize from what I have seen.

I can say, with 99.99% certainty, that I will likely hate this anime with a passion, just going over the synopsis. This type of drama the synopsis makes it out to be will probably never appeal to me.

Why, you ask?

This drama appears to be entirely driven by the characters, and reactions appear to be due to other character's actions, resulting in a miasma of a moral myopia. In essence, why would I want to watch a drama whose conflict is primarily driven and exists entirely because the characters are committing immoral actions of their own volition? Expecting me to sympathize with them in a situation that they knowingly brought on themselves for selfish reasons, whose solution can be summed up in the phrase of "Don't be a moron", is both exasperating and seemingly pointless.

This differs from dramas like Clannad or Angel Beats, which are more or less responses to undesirable circumstances outside of the characters' control, while Netsuzou Trap is entirely driven by the cheating between the two female protagonists, and nothing else. No untimely car accidents, no cancer diagnoses, no final goodbyes before fighting the ultimate evil. Just a bunch of people being assholes or being clueless, as per these dramas will inevitably go.

I cannot sympathize with these people, or even find value in its plot as it is presented. This drama will likely depend on people being horrible and deceitful asses to one another, and other people too clueless to figure out what is going on. In this set of circumstances, the solution is obvious enough. Don't associate with dramatic people, or people who certainly act immorally. Don't be an asshole yourself. Just...don't be anywhere near them.

There, done. Is it that hard? This is really no different than watching an episode of The Jerry Springer Show, and why people dislike garbage like Jerry in the first place. Stupidity and immorality are entirely a choice here, alongside the choice to hang out with these people. Cheating is a choice, and so is associating with these people. Not everyone is this horrible in real life. Just hang out with other people or be alone.

To reiterate why I think I will hate this anime:

-Protagonist females involved are complete assholes
-Everyone is likely clueless
-The plot is entirely driven and caused by human selfishness and stupidity, and not in response to an outside circumstance.
-The solution for said drama is obvious: Don't hang out with dramatic people, and don't do anything to incite drama.



The anime may be decent if it leads to the conclusion brought on by growth of the supposedly sympathetic female that what she is doing is wrong, but spending so much time getting there is likely aggravating, seeing as how the characters appears to be the same, compared to Nozoki Ana, which served as more of the protagonist's learning experience in the real world and how defying social norms isn't bad post High School.

Not saying you are going to enjoy it but I'll just say that I was in largely the same boat as you just going by a synopsis I had read. As a huge yuri fan, though, I figured I'd at least give the manga a try. I won't go into spoiler territory but the actual manga does a much better job of presenting the story and characters than the synopsis lets on, and I hope the anime does the same (though with the supposedly short episodes I'm not sure it will have time). That said, it's definitely drama filled and one of the characters (well, two, I guess) is definitely love-to-hateable in a similar way to Akane in Scums Wish. Basically, I'd advise people not to completely judge the book by the cover on this one, especially if you're judging it purely based on the name.

I'd say the only reason I would be wrong is if the story didn't follow the same basic outline of what I described given what the synopsis described. I don't like drama that is the fault of the characters presented when they do things that are deceitful, not necessitated by the current circumstances, and arguably morally wrong. The reason why my High School years were peaceful enough is because I did not associate with the dramatic people of my school, nor did anything of a nature that would be dramatic and most certainly against my principles, which I note are my own, and if I happen to associate with people involved in drama, I don't ask or get myself involved unless there is something of a serious nature that demands help. Or I simply say a hardy "Fuck you" and take a hike.

The solution is apparent enough to me, teenagers (Who are usually the age where people will begin to date) or not. Dissociate from assholes, and don't be an asshole.

However, if it goes by the whole "We can't be together due to discrimination", then I think would be an angle I would be comfortable watching. Having awful people be awful to each other while everyone is ignorant is not only a lack of enjoyment, but pointless if but for a moral that is apparent, which isn't cheating, but the concept of honesty in a relationship. If it was family I had to put up with, I understand due to the circumstances I had to deal with in my own life.

I don't mean to offend you Strider. I am sorry if I did.



I just don't see any reason to invest myself based on the synopsis anymore than watching The Maury Povich Show[i/] or The Jerry Springer Show. There's no reason to be this stupid.

No offense taken.

I get what you're saying and can certainly appreciate that you may not be interested. You spell out pretty clearly why you're not interested and I can completely respect that, and I don't doubt that you wouldn't get any enjoyment out of NTR with the preferences you have.

It's not specifically for you but for anyone who is looking at this series and basing their judgement entirely on the synopsis which I feel is a little misrepresentative of the actual work (or the manga at least).
