Everyone is 16 when they do it... or was it 18, I don't remember what those disclaimer labels read anymore.

I was greatly amused that he kept going after being walking in on.

She ate a whale.

I'm pretty sure that most people would have common sense enough to lock their doors when they don't want people walking in on them. Then again, Haru doesn't really seem to have much of anything except for some kind of overly-potent pheromone emitter.

But yeah, pretty funny how he kept going after Sora walked in on them.

Sora and Nao should've beat each other while at the bus station like in the second ED.

Alright, I wasn't a fan of Nao, and after watching this arc, I'm still not a fan. The conflict of this entire thing is less about her, but rather centered around Sora's fear of abandonment stemming from a hatred of Nao. Nao doesn't like... do anything. I think I agree with some assessments that this isn't so much as Nao arc, but rather a bad end for Sora. It seemed rather stupid to have the conflict resolved by having Nao run into a fire to save the rabbit, but there it is.

Anyways, I think Nao getting three ero scenes is attempt to drive up her dvd sales.

Yeah I agree with just about everything you said Thahn, and I felt the same way while watching it. The conflict resolution seems too easy and fake, and the arc really did focus on Sora's abandonment issues too much. But yeah when I saw them in front of the bus stop I was like, Deja Vu anyone? I can't see Nao's ero scene's driving sales up too much seeing how her scenes in particular weren't very interesting/funny/retarded just.... standard.....

Childhood friend paths are always the most standard. But hey, I guess some people just like having some standard ero scenes with boring unlikeable characters.

In other words, thank god this arc is over. Time to get on with the wincest

Looks like the beginning of a good Nice Boat ending, also lol @ ending scene.
I like how in the maid extra the show blatantly knew that they were skipping out on porn.

. . . We're going down a slippery slope with this show and they can't exactly hand wave it by revealing they're not blood related (well if they do, then the writing is pretty much going to be written off as horrible). Like I said in the opener, this game was known for its blatant incest route.

As an aside, maybe I should call this show delicious legs.

Closing thoughts: What's with the black lights? This is on AT-X. Does the Sora route need such methods to push dvds?

Episode 11 made me come out of hiding and log on just so I can post on how awesome it was.

If there any doubts about that, that was put to rest with this episode. Blatant tit shots, blatant sex, hell I think the only thing that was censored was the under the table blowjob.

I also like how Sora goes from a lazy, dispassionate person to loving wife mode after tasting some of Haru's good stuff.

Best cliffhanger ever. Can't wait for underwater sex.

Dear ATX, we made this sweet hentai and we wanna air it on your station because you don't censor that much. We're going to advertise it as just another visual novel adaptation and nobody will be the wiser, also your rating will skyrocket because the visual novel is so poplar. Oh and it may or may not have incestuous themes, don't ask any questions.
Yours Truly,
Gansis/feel

Oh my god, I haven't laughed that hard since the Akira sex scene in this show, everything from the retarded situations that Haru gets himself into to the facial expressions to go along with them are just priceless.
What Nao said: "I don't want this"
What Haru should have said: "You wanted it hard last arc"
But seriously, any girl that you mention your research on previous incestuous relationships to and how they ended up is OBVIOUSLY going to get some suspicions about you. Gansis had two options for the next episode, either do a kama sutra montage with Sora and Haru, or do a cliffhanger ending so that they can try to recover their dignity with a possible break-up of the incest relationship ending. I do agree with you about Sora's personality change Vince, Haru must have some extremely special love juice.
Also, the title translates to "Sora's way", I suppose that's supposed to mean like the path that she chooses or whatever. Either way why be subtle with the title, the show should have been named "Haru's Love Sauce"
Anyways, the next episode is the last one. Exciting.

At least the show addresses the inherit wrongness of the relationship, despite Sora's attempt to wave it off.

I think the overall message of this show is to lock the damn doors.

As far as I can tell, the game wasn't really popular. It's ranked 16 on Getchu's 2008 side light scenario listing and didn't even make it to overall top (though Sora did come in at #2 in the character rankings for side light).

So the show gives us a very creepy looking Kozue-chan followed by an attempt to convince the audience that incestual relationships aren't all that bad. Riiiiiiiiiight.......

Well, this show was by no means a quality show, but I can't say I disliked it really. Between the WTFPORN moments + the bobble-head Akira in the meido side story, this was one of the more looked-forward-to shows of the season.
Maybe I can get some more warning before I watch a show that it's actually just a hentai.
But in all seriousness the biggest problem with this show is that, unlike Amagami, none of the haremettes were really that interesting, if I had to rate the girls, they'd all be pretty much equal. I didn't know anything about the girls in this show anymore than I knew any of the girls beforehand in Amagami, but in Amagami as I saw the other contestants in a certain girl's arc early on I started to like certain one more than others because of their distinct personality, this never happened in YnS. The lack of character depth and emotional connection really didn't give the show a huge interest factor for the erotic scenes to build upon. If Amagami had erotic scenes for Haruka (moreso than it was at least), Sae, Nanasaki, and Ayatsuji it would have been like the frosting on the cake instead of the whole cake a la YnS.

Final thoughts: Note to self download the meido side story ED song, why haven't I done it yet.

Trains why did it have to be trains, for a week my life has had some kind of train theme. Also, I think whatever budget was left was consumed animating breasts.

Okay final thoughts. Most eroge/VN adaptations have problems being faithful to the source or in some cases they abandon the source from the get go (I'm looking at you AkaSaka). YnS stuck to its source and pushed it as far as they could seemingly unashamed. Admittedly, the sex kept me on line partly because I was amused by the audacity. I mean first it shocked with Kazu, then Akira had all those different positions (I guess they assumed the audience wouldn't be content with happy consensual sex in the missionary position twice in a row), and well the sheer quantity (and nature) of the second half. My initial fear was the sheer speed of an omnibus on 12 episodes, but the production team went about it in a interesting way that ultimately worked, everyone gets three (except sora who got four) but has to share one with someone else. Obviously there were times when there signs of problems with this approach, mainly some of the transitions in the Akira route, but generally I approve of how they handled the stories as it allowed a sense of completion that's usually denied in most adaptations.

The characters weren't exactly anything we haven't seen before, but overall I found their designs appealing. Well, I have major issues with Nao, she doesn't have any FRAKKIN points since her selling point of being Haru's osananajimi was already taken up by Akira, who was miles a better character. Compared to Amagami which is a more character driven show, plot and conflict is the driver of YnS (Kazu's guilt, Akira's melancholy, Nao's... whatever the hell her problem was, and Sora's... well it was really more like Haru's problem). I felt the conflicts were completely reasonable with a satisfactory resolution. The sex was basically not needed for the first two routes, I think they're there to be fair to the Kazu and Akira and balance out how prominent sex is to the plot of the latter two. I'll give them props for actually working sex into the plot and actually making it come out fairly well.

Solid productions in art and music basically round out the show and I give this thing my approval.

Closing thoughts: I've said it before, but I think that the fact that this show seems to have had the most overlap in viewing says something rather disturbing.

I felt the conflicts were completely reasonable with a satisfactory resolution.

I suppose that's true, there was more of an overall conflict-driven plot in this show than Amagami, but the problem is unless you have a spectacular plot for a haremesque show, it's just not going to pull through as well as a character driven show will, and YnS did not have a spectacular plot by any means.

Speaking of the music, I do think they made some good choices in the OST and OP ED songs, but what gets me is how they blackmailed Eufonius into singing the OP, I mean she went from Noein with it's intricate plot and complex story, to True Tears which was one of the best romance shows I've ever seen, also highly reviewed; to this show which features incest relationships and eroticism. I guess singers just don't give a shit what show their work is associated with.

YnS was ranked 16th in Getchu's side light for scenario (it would be even lower if we add in side black). It was beaten by like everything and IIRC wasn't even on the radar for 2ch. While it wasn't stellar, I did find it reasonable for the show. As an aside, Ef got pummeled in 2008 as well, although it at least usually made it to overall even if it didn't top 10 anywhere. What does this tell us? There were a lot of games in 2008.

Within reason, I don't think anyone is thrilled to have their songs get used for the really dark games. Otherwise I don't think they mind, I mean Granrodeo and Jam Project sang for Muv Luv though the girls in that game basically wear what amounts to plastic wrap for combat attire, though MLA is regarded as the greatest VN ever so... (then again Jam Project will probably sing anything with mechs in it). And Kotoko seems to always be on call for Giga.
