Yuji is the main character that give these girls to the help went needed. The animation is done by Eight Bit with bright colors and stained character design. The Fruit of Grisala anime have some adult content due suitable for younger audience. This tv series is 12 episodes and there is a sequel called The Eden of Grisaia. Along with a animated movie The Labyrinth of Grisaia. There is another movie called Grisaia Phantom Trigger the Animation to check out as well.
I love Yuji character because he is not like the typical harem mc in anime. He is the straight guy in the anime. The Fruit of Grisaia shifts from happy to dark in a single episode. Some of the female characters come from a rich family. We never get to see if Michiru having a rich family. That’s a mystery that probably in the game. If you want to learn more about Yuji past watch the anime sequels or movie. There is some specials featuring Yuji and the female characters. I really enjoy this anime along with School Days. Yuji is like John Wick but kinder than Reeves. I would recommend watching this show and play the video game as well. You can watch The Fruit of Grisaia anime on Crunchyroll or buy Dvd on Amazon. Buy the visual novel on PC/Steam available now.
