Story & Characters

The main story tells about Hatsuki Azuma a tenage girl who is in love with his younger step-sister Hatsumi Azuma.The interest part of all this that Hatsumi is not a normal girl, she is Eve, the same from the bible, the same who was the wife form Adam, the first man, and for that she's an angel, and also have special magical powers.
One night Eve sudenly disappears right before the eyes of Hatsuki, and a fat-bird called Ken-chan appears looking for Eve, after that Ken-chan tooks Hatsuki to the big library,a place where time dosn't exist as we know, there appears another character the real Older sister of Eve, Lilith. For those who not knows, Lilith was the very first wife of Adam, instead of Eve (another anime who tells about this is Evangelion).
Also, Lilith seems to be much intrested in Hatsuki, because she lloks like Adam and so the typical love triangle it's completed, Hatsuki, Lilith and Ken-chan starts to search for Eve in the diferents worlds (the worlds are books), of the big library.
The cool thing about all this is that the series is based in a hentai game, but the anime is not hentai, and this makes an intresting plot.
A bad thing that i can say... it's too short, after the end you still want to see more adventures, maybe they need to make a second part, i mean, the end is a bit predecible, that's not bad at all, but you still want some more.
When i watched the 2 first episodes, i didn't liked at all, but after that it began to make an intresting plot.

Starting by the opening, the song Hitomi no Naka ni Aru Meikyuu, it's a very good one special for an anime opening, a very good chacarcter design, vivid colors, aiwh a bit of details for every one, Lilith the sexy girl, or Hatsuki with her very very long hair, or Gargantua a funny guy that dosn't know what he want's for his life, detalis like this are everywhere, even in the "dark" ambients.
For the ending, Eien no Inori wo Sasagete, is a bit boring, like a lullaby, nothing that goes out than the "normal", that's ok anyway.

The humor factor is present as you can expect from a good anime, Lilith makes everything to get a kiss from Hatsuki, and it makes you laught all the time, she is the typical girl that play as the "dumb girl with no brain", but she's more than that, she occult many things (that one the kind of things because i said that Yamibou should have a seccond part), she's a smart girl, and she knows that...
By the other hand we have the pet that all anime should have to be a good anime, Ken-chan the fat bird (it looks like friend of mine), it will make you laugh just because he's fat and he got tired all the time because he just have to fly, also because Lilith and Hatsuki hits him all the time.
Gargantua is also another character that it will make you laugth, because his "ambiguous" way to be (he is not gay, is just his way to be), and his three servants.
Finaly i can say that, the excesive female characters for all the episodes, is a good "nice to view" thing, and as i said before i liked a lot that this anime wasn't hentai, because the main plot always loses points, just because the sex scenes, and oll that kind of stuff that is unescesary if you just want to have a nice trip with the main chacarters.
