The perverted main protagonist caught panty-stealing.

I’m on fire now, so just a day after my review of Jigoku Shoujo comes out, there come another review of a short series titled Hani Hani: Operation Sanctuary.

Story:-
This is a series based on a hentai game that attempted to fuse romance with sci-fi and also those harem elements in a high-school setting. Confused? Me too, hahahaha. 3 people voted this series as Masterpiece in Anime News Network. I hope those people died without children. Good for the DNA pool.

For a H-game based series, this title lacks severely in fan-service department. Even Tonagura has many more panty-shots compared to this series. Plus, as expected, the story is shallow (not that you can expect more from a 13-episode run at 12 minutes each). The execution also fails, with sorry attempts at doing Naruto-esque flashbacks and dreams.

Character Design:-
Not that bad, your standard generic H-game characters. You know, big eyes, flawless skins, hair with colours other than black. Nothing more to be said.

Voice acting:-
Probably the strong point of this anime. But do not really expect this one to be as good as Jigoku Shoujo or Galaxy Angel or even Wolf’s Rain.

Music:-
If there is any OST, then I failed to notice it. The themes has nothing to be commented about.

Animation/Direction:-
The animation is quite good but the directing stinks alongside the storyline.

Conclusion:-
A short 3 out of 10. There is nothing good really that can be said about this series. To Japan, if you want to do an H-game propaganda anime series, at least do it the way Shuffle! did. Now that would be a very good storyline with an unconventional ending.


The perverted main protagonist offered to help putting the bra on.
