NTR: Netsuzou Trap Episode #11 Anime Review

Love is hard.

What They Say:
Yuma, a high school second-year, is enjoying every day now that she has her first boyfriend. After she asks for relationship advice from Hotaru, her beautiful long-time friend who has had many boyfriends, Hotaru teases her for her inexperience and playfully does things to her that even her boyfriend doesn't do. Yuma and Hotaru's secret relationship continues to escalate, and Yuma finds herself unable to deny how it makes her feel. This school drama tells the story of the interwoven lives of these two girls with boyfriends.

The Review:
Content: (Please note that the content portion of the review may contain spoilers)
At long last, we're almost done. After three months of endless, lesbian tongue wrestling and off-the-mark fanservice, NTR's less than impressive foundation for a yuri series has crumbled into non-existence. Luckily for us, Yuma has finally come to terms with her feelings, albeit with only ten minutes of runtime until the show ends. Of course, the idea of something actually happening in NTR is abhorrent to its creators, so these feelings are shot down the second they become apparent to Hotaru. I mean, of course she wouldn't reciprocate Yuma's love. It's not like shes been making romantic and sexual advances on her behind the back of her abusive boyfriend for the last eleven episodes or anything.

I apologize for the abundance of passive-aggressive sarcasm in my last few reviews of this series, but I honestly think NTR is actively attempting to make me hate it.

At the end of the day, we're gifted with another scenario in which the lesbian protagonist only understands that she is a lesbian after being told that the butterflies in her stomach are not actual butterflies. What sucks about this is that Yuma winds up figuring this out from the dude she's been cuckholding for an entire school year -- and she essentially rubs it in his face the same day because she's too absent-minded to understand that human beings actually have feelings. I know this idea may be foreign to Yuma who, just five minutes ago was under the assumption that full-grown insects were flying around in her gut, but this is just flat out rude. Takeda is the only character in this show that, at least at some point, had an actual conscience and now he's just some dude that willingly throws himself into chronic depression just so he can play basketball with some girl he thinks is hot.

Eventually, Yuma goes home and, for approximately the seventy-third time, runs into Fujiwara punching Hotaru in the face or something. But knowing Hotaru, I would not rule out the possibility that she was just being annoying and answering everything Fujiwara has to say in a question or something. Then, in true NTR-fashion, the episode comes to a close on a stupid close-up of Fujiwara's stupid face that will be ultimately diffused in the first stupid minutes of the stupid season finale.

In Summary:
I am so excited for next week's episode that I can't even describe it. Not because I need to know how the series ends or anything, but because I'm excited to never have to talk about this show again. I hope we get some sort of School Days ending where Yuma goes off the rails and just kills everyone -- but I understand that this would require actual writing and its been proven over the last several months that NTR's storyboarding consists nothing more than two girls in cute outfits figuring out how to take off each other's clothes off.
