“Minimal service” is the best way to sum up the finale of Grisaia no Rakuen.
As to be expected the service, with the exception of episode 8, has died down in the closing episodes of Rakuen. In these episodes, there really isn’t any chance for redraws and the only chances of screen cropping being fixed would only give us some extra cleavage. Still though it was pretty entertaining.
Verrrrry minimal amount of shots here.
Very plot heavy episode, don’t think they were even trying to put in any fanservice.
This episode did offer some more shots here and there but nothing to go crazy about.
Kazuki is again seen in her….chamber thing, and is clothed. As I said before, she was fully nude in the VN in these scenes and they made this change for the anime for additional censorship. I would be extremely surprised if they changed this scene in the BDs as, since she was fully nude in the VN, they would have to give Kazuki some barbie genitalia down south, something I feel the staff are not willing to do. Additionally, the clothes seem to be something that a simple redraw won’t fix. If you look at her, her clothes are very much on her and would take more effort to change than say, Kurumi with her super-imposed fabric in Shinmai Maou. Basically, I would say don’t expect a change here.
Later, when Yuuji completes his mission, the girls all take refuge on Kazuki’s island. They seem to have gotten a bit of colour on their time there.
And that is all she wrote.
Overall Grisaia no Rakuen was an interesting experience that delivered service when it wanted it to and gave a solid story when it was asked to. The anime itself was nothing special but it was a decent watch either way. I really enjoyed the first half with Yuuji and his character development and the 2nd half had its share of exciting moments and uhh….exciting moments. It hit a solid middle ground with me, not recommendable but not awful and that’s commendable from being based of an eroge with the main attraction being the girls. I would like to see more anime like Rakuen, anime that are willing to go the full-mile with its fanservice and still provide and enjoyable watch.
But that leads me to my next point. Its obvious that the main attraction, service wise, is whatever we are getting as a bonus on the BDs. There were some great fanservice scenes in Grisaia no Rakuen but those scenes alone won’t compare to the BD specials of Kajitsu when they are uncensored. I’m still excited for the Grisaia no Meikyuu BD for the scenes with Kazuki and Yuuji’ mom. They were very intense in their own right and Rakuen never really reached the peak of those scenes. Well, “Come what may!” is all we can say for the time being.
