Grisaia no Kajitsu Episode 2 – Not bad

IT'S TIME.

The Yuuji butt begins.
Grisaia no Kajitsu Episode 2 Review.
Le Fruit de la Grisaia Episode 2 Review.

This is the visual novel adaptation that many have been waiting for, and from the looks of the comments surrounding these first two episodes, this has been a good adaptation so far. As I did not play the visual novel, I cannot provide you with my opinions on how good it is as an adaptation. What I can give you, however, is an anime-only viewer perspective on what has transpired in these first two episodes. Hopefully, that’ll give even visual novel readers an idea of what people with a different perspective think about this title.

I BECAME AN ASSASSIN SHORTLY AFTER KNOWN FOR MY SHINY BUTT AND HAIRY BALLSACKS, BUT THE BALLSACKS ARE A DIFFERENT STORY.

Grisaia no Kajitsu Episode 2 Review

Usually, I’d actually analyze what went on during the episode. In this particular episode’s case, I would talk about why Sakaki Yumiko is acting in such a way, and my guesses as to the various characters’ pasts. But since this is a well-known visual novel that many have read, doing that would be a lot less fruitful than it would usually be. After all, it is only the beginning and I’d be shooting in the dark anyways. Basically, I’d end up looking like an idiot making random guesses. Instead, I’ll just focus on critiquing it¬†for now until things develop to a point where I can analyze the character in a way that’s beneficial for everyone.¬†Firstly, let’s discuss the pacing. For visual novel adaptations especially, the story can be uncomfortably quick paced. This is due to a combination of the long length of the source material and the multitude of different routes to consider. Thankfully, these first two episodes, at least from my anime-only perspective, have been very well paced. The first episode gives an introduction to the personalities of the various characters (along with some quality Yuujibutt) while focusing¬†more on Yuuji’s buttcheeks, Amane’s titties, Sachi the maid overlord, and Michiru the best tsundere actor. This second one then focuses on Yumiko the Gahara V2, and Makina the drooler while adding bits and pieces in between involving everyone. This creates a nice balance of development between the characters¬†which makes me¬†feel like I’m going through the “prologue” of a visual novel where everyone is introduced before I pick a route that I want to take. No one is being neglected, and character screen times have been even.

The other reason it feels well paced is the flow of scenes in both episodes. What I mean by this is that adequate time is used for a single scenario. For example, the Michiru tsundere introduction in episode 1 was given almost five minutes, sitting around and talking to Makina took the same amount of time, Sachi just showing Yuuji his room and introducing herself took three, and so on.¬†This adaptation is clearly not rushing through the portrayal of the various characters if it’s dedicating that much time to these scenes that don’t have a lot going on. Now, on paper this sounds like a bad thing since one would probably think that a¬†story should have interesting things going on. Isn’t that the point? Well, the thing is that jumping into interesting things right away isn’t necessarily a good idea when we don’t know much about the characters at all. As long as there are hints of more intriguing plot points, which there are (ending of episode 1 for example), that should be good enough¬†to pique an anime-only viewer interest. Even with that aside, the character interactions are already enough to convince me to follow this anime every week. Yuuji may have the look of an asshole, but he certainly has good chemistry with the other characters given his nature. It greatly helps that the female protagonists are distinct enough from the others to stand on their own in… interesting ways. I mean, at the end of this episode we see that Sachi is probably making those masochists among us very happy.

Nothing has truly started yet. We don’t know what pasts the girls, or even Yuuji have. We don’t know whether this will be more focused on Yuuji and one single girl or Yuuji, one single girl with the other four greatly supporting the story as well. Currently, the anime is simply letting us become accustomed to the personalities of these girls so when the drama comes around, we’ll care that much more. Without looking at the thirteen episode limit on MAL, it¬†seems like this¬†has a great amount of potential, but sadly, there is a thirteen episode limit, and we have to discuss the limitations that it brings for a visual novel adaptation like this. Look, the gradual pace is great. There’s no doubt about that. Visual novel readers are for the most part, happy with these two episodes. The problem is sustaining this gradual pace with a thirteen episode limit without rushing it later on.¬†Now, I’ve asked a friend about how long the common route is, and he said that it’s a lot longer than the individual routes (not collectively of course). At this pace, he says that it’ll¬†take much longer than 1-cour to complete the common route. With this information, I’m¬†becoming a lot more doubtful as to how well the rest of the anime is going to turn out.

So far, while this anime has by no means been fantastic, it’s been solid with what it’s trying to do. After all, it is only until later when the drama starts rolling¬†that we can see whether the writing and execution are¬†truly good or not. These two episodes have been a good sign of what’s to come, but with such a limited number of episodes, I’m not sure how they’re going to do this. While they obviously don’t want to butcher this by rushing it, they didn’t give themselves enough time in the first place by making it thirteen episodes. It seems unlikely that they’d rush through the rest given how they’ve paced everything so far. The best case scenario is that this is a split cour anime. The worst case is that they rush it heavily later on. The case in between is if they keep the pace and end¬†it at a cliffhanger. Even though people would undoubtedly be angry if it does end at a cliffhanger, and I would be irritated as well, that’s far better than rushing it since a continuation can be done for this season in the future should they decide to take this route which would be unavailable if they rush through¬†later on. It would be a huge disappointment if this adaptation starts off¬†this strong, and ends up as a rushed mess. That, is the one thing I hope it avoids becoming even if this season is to end at a cliffhanger with no second season in sight. At the very least, I’d be able to enjoy these thirteen episodes instead of being disappointed¬†at a visual novel adaptation once again.

  • MgMaster

    The 2nd episode continues to make me hopeful that this adaptation might actually be somewhat better than the VN in that it fixes the awful pacing issues present there(more obvious in some routes than others). Of course,this is coming from someone who rarely play’s VNs and just happened to try this out due to it’s popularity so 12-15 hours of common route SoL where jokes start getting repetitive,which is something more hardcore VN players don’t really mind much,if at all.

    The anime will obviously not have enough time so they can’t afford to waste time,which is great IMO but at the same time,it has to make sure not to skip out on TOO much and carefully decide what to leave in and what to leave out so that the characterization won’t fall flat,because Grisaia has a TON of it(more than necessary in the VN,heh – although thats arguably better than little to none).

    But dear Tatsuya,this better be split-cour assuming they want to go through all the routes or rushed would be putting it lightly. It’s not a problem if they want to adapt just one though,although for a popular VN,I’d assume they’d want to please the fans of each girls.

    • http://www.entravity.com/ Entrav

      I don’t think they’re planning to do all the routes right now. Their concern is probably just getting through one as that’s difficult enough already. I’m really not sure about them going through all the routes in 26 episodes. Is that even possible? I doubt it, right? THERE’S NO WAY YUUJI’S BUTTCHEEKS CAN FIT THAT, RIGHT?!

      • MgMaster

        I think it’s possible in 26 since there’s just so much that can be cut from the common route that won’t affect neither the story nor the characterization – at least not by much anyway. Hell,even in Amane’s route the pacing issues are still present and,even becoming more obvious at times,and a little can be cut out from there as well and probably from some of the other routes too.

        I’d say that adapting one route does seem likely,especially since one of the girls has a greater presence in the opening. But then I wonder what would be the point of showing bits of all the routes in those final scenes of the previous episode and especially in the opening,which will be a constant reminder. It seems a bit too much to be a teaser who’s sole purpose is to make people want to check out the VN. Still,just one route wouldn’t be hard for 13 eps and it’s preferable compared to trying to fit them all in.

        • MgMaster

          Hmm,wth? I accidentally deleted the comment which this reply is for and re-posted it above but then this one appeared again. Can you pls remove it?

        I’m just gonna pray to our Almighty Lord Tatsuya that he blesses 8bit with the necessary wiseness to make Grisaia to either do a split-cour or a 2nd season if this one sell’s well enough(which it will,since the VN is apparently quite popular). Hopefully,the Lord will find them worthy of receiving His blessing and they’ll accept His light.

        • http://www.entravity.com/ Entrav

          I don’t think it’s too much to be a teaser. It’s not rare at all for adaptations to do this so people will buy the VN. That’s sometimes the main purpose of making an adaptation to begin with.

          I too, hope that the Lord’s wisdom shall shine through and allow this adaptation to succeed. May His apostle’s buttcheeks prevail.

  • TurriPi

    I fucking love the MC in this adaptation. As I guessed, removing his ridiculously stuck-up monologues did a ton in his favour.

    I read somewhere the division of the routes actually occurs really late into the story. Maybe they’re planning different season 2’s? Would certainly be interesting, although it is a pretty far-fetched idea.

    • http://www.entravity.com/ Entrav

      Yeah, the common route is a lot longer (friend said roughly 10x longer) than the individual ones.

  • Andmeuths

    It’s probably intended to be split cour, with focus on a single girl eventually. Which of course scratches the surface of the world. Depending on sales, it might get more Cours, each revealing another aspect.

    • http://www.entravity.com/ Entrav

      That’s what I’m thinking too since it doesn’t make sense that they’d not rush it this early on and that they’d rush it later. That would be more silly than rushing it now to give enough room later on for perhaps the more important things. Then again, I have no clue what troubles they have in the development process or what they plan to do.

      It’ll be interesting to see multiple split cours each with a different ending. I don’t even think any adaptation has ever done that before.

  • niknasr

    Good review, certainly this is one of the shows that I want to keep an eye on.. If what you said is true, I’m also would love this to be a split cour instead of rushing it..
    Did I see a STU this season too?? I certainly did.. Tatsuya must be pleased

    • niknasr

      Oh, man I thought I already login when I posted this.. Why the name is “Guest”?? Well, whatever.. But I have hopes for this adaptation.. 8 bit also is not a bad company, and I have faith in them..

  • Zerriet

    After watching this episode, I felt this series was still just slightly above average since it hasn’t exactly done much to really strike me yet like other series has such as Akatsuki no Yona. However, I personally intrigued by how it will turn out and I liked the character interactions ( Michiru is the best tsun-sama). Overall, I would probably give it more time just like you had said. After all, Madoka Magica took 3 episodes to prove everyone wrong about what the series was about.

  • Yatogami

    Unfortunately JB doesn’t have a route in Kajitsu but she’s always there for a good tease. Also DONT CALL YUMIKO “GAHARA V2” (though I’m having a hard time provong that shes not >_>). Also without spoiling anything major Yumiko’s rich and I mean RRRIIIICCHHHHHHH which is why she can afford to offer that much money just for some information.

    • http://www.entravity.com/ Entrav

      B-B-BUT DAT KNIFE. DAT TILT. DAT ATTITUDE.

      • Yatogami

        The box opener I’ll give you and IDK why they did the shaft tilt on her but she doesn’t do that in the VN its more of a sideways thing not break your neck owl 180 type thing and finally you have made a mistake. (O lord you’re bring my dark nerd side out) Yumiko is a kuudere, Senjougahara is a tsundere there is a difference >_>.

  • Red

    She (JB) has a rotue in one of the later two installments. I’m not sure exactly which however..

  • DarkSmoonS .

    Grisaia no Meikyuu routes: Amane after, Yumiko after, Michiru after, Makina after, Sachi after,
    And the Grisaia no Meikyuu Grand route.

    Grisaia no Rakuen routes: Grand route, paradise route thingy I’m not sure I understand, kajitsu’s prequel.

    There is no route solely for Jb in the trilogy, but there is a lot of explanations about her and sakako ( Yuuji’s master ) in the meikyuu grand route, + h scenes.

  • illidan

    Not only is JB a route, there are plenty and fine scenes in it. 10/10 tits, probably even better than Amane’s
