Review:
It’s all just a dream… or so Nakagawa would like to think as he watches his old friend and slight love interest Mitsuko, now known as No. 3, get continually raped by his fellow high school students. After her family’s business failed they had to cover the debt somehow, so they did what most families do, they sold their daughter into sexual slavery. These poor girls are first trained for the rigors of their new occupation, where they’ll often take on multiple clients at once, as well as given numbers so they never have the shame of their name being known.   This is all just a part of life in this crazy messed up world, and Nakagawa just can’t seem to get with the program. He wants her for himself, he knows her real name, and he wants to live out a little fairy tale where she’s also student and they’re in love. But this isn’t his own little dream world, and when other students find out about his affection for her, and subsequently her name, they’re going to torment the both of them for their own twisted pleasure. 
 
It didn’t start out like this however.  At first Nakagawa couldn’t even talk to the always naked No. 3, but after a chance meeting on the roof they once again kindled their old friendship. Problems only started when Nakagawa tried to take things a step further, doing such things as calling her by her name and giving her his sister’s old school uniform. Unfortunately their little play dates on the roof are quickly found out by the roving hordes of hooligans who want nothing more than to have loads of sex. That doesn’t bode too well for Nakagawa, whose boiling blood is neither helped by his hilarious inability to do much of anything nor by his larger than life ears. All he gets is continually beat up and forced to watch as guy after guy, group after group, take out their lascivious desires on his poor lost love.
 
That’s why Nakagawa constantly wants to believe this is all just a dream, because the real world couldn’t be this cruel. And as his delusions continue to grow, he finally starts to think of an actual plan as to how he can save No. 3 from her current situation. Unfortunately they don’t quite see eye to eye on his grand scheme, but it’s the thought that counts and she certainly isn’t one to let such a gesture go unrewarded. Their one night together is all Nakagawa’s going to get though, as the end of the OVA throws us an ambiguous curveball that alludes to, but never specifically tells us, what exactly happened. It’s sort of odd given their conversation the night before, but what do words really matter when there’s sex to be had?
 
Now that’s really what Kimi no Na wo Yobeba is about, and over the two episodes you have almost exclusive gangbang scenes taking place as No. 3 has every orifice filled time and again. It’s actually sort of strange in that respect, because she’s almost the only girl you see naked or having sex, and all but one of her scenes involves the same group of guys doing the same twisted things to her over and over. It’s fine at the start when it’s basically her job to have sex with them, but after they learn her name it turns into something completely different as she starts freaking out and crying whenever they yell “Mitsuko!” It basically gives them the feeling they’re raping her, which is apparently something that really turns them on, but the change in tone of the sex scenes is not really the problem here. It’s their repetitious that starts to get old as they do the same things to her over and over, regardless of whether it’s being portrayed as consensual or not. At least one scene has the inclusion of some toys in an effort to quell the monotony of it all.
 
If there’s a bright spot to be had it’s that the animation pulls through with enough substance to keep the sex scenes moving despite their shortcomings. I mean, it’s not anything out of this world but it’s certainly good enough for what’s going on here. With Kimi no Na wo Yobeba currently unlicensed you’ll unfortunately be stuck with censored content and subtitles for the time being. At least I hope it’s only for the time being.
 
I can’t say I thoroughly enjoyed myself while watching Kimi no Na wo Yobeba. Not with all the, more or less, gang rape and mental/physical abuse going on, but there is something to be said for the overall quality. As long as you don’t mind the downtrodden nature of the content it should be a fairly enjoyable watch. 

Miscellaneous:
Maybe it’s my eyes playing tricks on me, but dang does Nakagawa look like he has some massive ears.
