Asa Mizushima and Natsume Sorayama are two equally lovely ladies who’re spending their summer away from home. As luck would have it, they’ve both managed to fall in love with Hajime Saisho, a perverted, flirtatious panty master whose love of women is only eclipsed by his lust for carnal pleasure. Not wanting to be undiplomatic about their situation, they decide to share Hajime over the summer to give them both an equal shot. At least these girls seem to realize the fastest way to a man’s heart is through his penis! And so the battle begins, with Asa and Natsume sexually attacking Hajime wherever and whenever they can, with plenty of clandestine meetings to keep their naughty fun all to themselves. But what are they going to do about their inevitable separation at the end of the summer? Well, they may have been able to come up with something if they weren’t so busy having sex all the time!
Sora no Iro, Mizu no Iro begins with Asa, Natsume, and Hajime already in the middle of their summer of love. After a little fun in the girls changing room reaches its climax, things kick into flashback mode as we’re transported to the beginning of summer and the events that lead up to this sordid love triangle. At first Asa wanted nothing to do with this perverted guy who kept pestering her, but as time wore on she began to find herself strangely attracted to him. Maybe it was the way her easily annoyed, quick tempered outbursts seemed to deter him not at all, or the way he genuinely seemed to care in his own special way, but she just couldn’t stop from wanting him to do all sorts of things to her. The shy and naughty Natsume, on the other hand, always wanted to be with Hajime and so their agreement to share him was born out of their mutual lust for his body. This was certainly no problem for the ever horny Hajime who was more than happy to fill his summer with such erotic sexual exploits. Whether at the pool, in the girl’s locker room, or at the festival, no time is ever a bad time to have a little naughty fun with a couple of girls who will do anything to please you. Especially when it’s out in the open or when people are around, where other people can possibly see you in the act or hear your moans. That’s a favorite of Hajime’s, and he’s always interested in getting these fine lasses almost caught by his fellow students. Now that may have resulted in some fun times right there...
With Sora no Iro, Mizu no Iro what you see is pretty much what you get. There is no greater story here; no events of any real merit that happen throughout, just a whole lot of sex involving this sordid trio of hormone laden high school students. Asa is simply a delight to watch and reminded me greatly of Lafiel from Crest of the Stars with her sassy attitude and quick temper. Her long dark hair and feisty manner were a great combination with her ecstasy filled facial expressions. Natsume is quite the looker as well, but I did not have as much of a desire for her as I did for Asa.
Even without a real story backdrop the first episode kept itself interesting thanks to the introduction of key characters and a sort of courting aspect to it, but that didn’t carry over to the second episode where it’s just more sex in different places. That becomes a slight problem, even with how well done Sora no Iro, Mizu no Iro is, because the sex isn’t varied enough to keep things interesting the whole time. You just can’t have the same people doing the same thing all the time, it gets old. And even though I love the animation and the two vixens gracing the screen, that couldn’t keep me from actually being a little bored during the second episode. That’s not good for something specifically trying to arouse you.
There’s no arguing that Sora no Iro, Mizu no Iro looks wonderful, has top notch animation, and a couple of girls that are really something to look at. Hell I would even say that the first episode is one of the best hentai episodes I have seen. Unfortunately the second episode, with its almost complete focus on the same sex with the same people over and over again just didn’t do the first enough justice. It’s still a spectacular hentai title regardless, don’t let my minor complaint fool you, but it could have been much better with some variety thrown in for good measure… and maybe a threesome.
