[Ended] [OVA] Candy Boy: Errr...



This is one of the oddest topic I've seen any anime to cover: Incest Yuri; put it in plain words: lesbian love between the twin sisters. As I mentioned in previous posts, though I never quite understood them, I knew Japanese pop culture has this fascination for incest and lesbianism. This, however, I think is the first time I see them being presented together.

I'm a pretty open minded person, so I'm not really bother by it. I'm just awed that these two topics can actually be put together and they go along quite well. Some parts of the story, I think is actually quite touching if you can get into the mood.

At this moment, I really don't know how or whether I would recommend this to anybody because I'm still a bit baffled by it at the moment. Howerver, what I could say is that if you have any strong negative opinions against either one of those topics (incest and yuri), I would urge you to stay away from this one.

Final score: ... (too baffled to think...)

BTW, anybody know why is this anime named "Candy Boy"? There is no reference in the story to either candy or boy.

If you are interested in watching it, you can find the torrents here: http://www.animesuki.com/series.php/1135.html. At the time of posting this, the final episode is not available yet, but I don't think it'll take long before someone finish subbing it and put it out...

It's called "Candy Boy" because the ending song for the original ONA was "Candy☆Boy" by Meilin.
