who cares if the series contains too many sinful stuff whatever, for i love it best when someone's trying to take a deeper dip into the taboo waters, resulting something as fearful as this in the eyes of the moralist. and besides, i could use more and more wincest stuff ever since akane-iro ni somaru saka almost delivered it well 1-2 years back before blowing up the revelation that the nagase siblings aren't blood related at all. pffft- and there goes my hope smashed flat on the marble floor beneath.
anyway, yosuga no sora is yet another series that is adapted from an eroge like many others which preceded it prior. yes i know there aren't many anifans who are quite fan of eroge adaptations since most of them didn't quite translate well on screen, primarily due to improper planning etc. well let us hope that yosuga no sora won't be suffering from the same syndrome, and let it be among those which will succeed greatly enough for us to remember it for the many years to come.
the series opens well with the usual [ mild ] introduction[s] of its characters, but most prominently is of the two twins of whom were the main focus of the story; even if their introduction can be considered mildly brief since a lot of information can be gathered in regard to them from first episode alone, and this could as well serve well in maintaining the storytelling pace should it stick to this fashion for the rest of the series. by the way, i need to mention a huge caution here as this series contains several explicit scenes which definitely won't go down well with some folks, esp. those of the minor age.
the overall visual presentation is splendidly top notch here; from the breathtaking countryside setting / background, the handsome camerawork down to the character design which were tastefully conceived. the animation is wonderful, and the whole production value felt really strong and solid here compared to some other eroge adaptations i've seen.
