Conception – Second Chances (Episodes 5-8)

What’s happened since last time? Itsuki continues to seduce the Star Maidens and produce Star Children to help him defeat the evil entities that inhabit the dungeons so that he and Mahira can return to Earth. Sadly, that about covers it. There is nothing more to the story…

Have your feelings changed? So, I started watching this with little to no expectations. It was going to be stupid and a bit trashy, but I hoped it would still be enjoyable. There were a couple of noteworthy moments in the first eight episodes, but not much else.

With all the different Star Maidens that Itsuki must seduce, there really isn’t any time to get to know them or see a connection between them that isn’t superficial or forced.

It would have been better if the Star Maidens didn’t know and if they found out what was going on it would ruin the chance so of a Star Child. Everything is just too easy and they’re all expecting his advances. It’s utterly boring!

Favourite character so far? I went with Mana after the first four episodes because even though it was annoying, it did have some funny lines. That has either dried up or just stopped being funny. So, I don’t actually care about any of the characters. Even the Star Maidens are barely distinguishable from one another.

Who do you want to see more of? Something else…

Are you going to continue watching? This series has dropped to the bottom of the pile for me. It had the potential to be a raunchy comedy, but it’s just bland and boring. What’s even worse is that I went in with very low expectations, almost none existent, and it’s still managed to fail. There are four episodes left. I will force myself to watch them, once I’ve seen everything else, mostly because I’m not sure I can believe it’ll get any worse.

  1. Believe. It will get worse. I’m only going to watch the final episode because having sat through eleven episodes of it I am going to get a full series review out of it – I’ll work really hard not to make it a rant though I may have to write the rant first just to get it out of my system.

    1. Yeah, it’s gone so far in the wrong direction, I can’t help but finish it now. There is just so much wrong with it on a story level, but even the fan-service is bad.

    2. I know. Even if you are watching just for the harem-hentai moments this just doesn’t seem like it would be an overly satisfying viewing experience at this point. It just isn’t very good.
