C3 is about a boy who lives in a house that has the power to dispel curses. So he takes in a bunch of cursed objects to cure them. Of course, these cursed objects all happen to be cute girls.
Despite the bland setup, I have to admit I enjoyed this. This wasn’t just your usual harem; it was your usual harem composed of deadly weapons and torture devices. Courtship has never been so much fun!
The characters are mostly interesting. I particularly liked Inchou, of course (smart girls are the best!), but I also liked Konoha. This is probably the first childhood friend character I didn’t want to strangle since Kannagi.
Unfortunately, the lead characters were less exciting. The male protagonist was fairly bland. Fear, the lead female, is Shana clone #6023, except she uses torture devices instead of a sword. Why do harem leads always seem to go with the characters I like least? (Damn you, Kyon! How could you choose Haruhi over Nagato?!)
But in general the characters were likable, and the story itself was serviceable, if not particularly unique. To be frank, I probably gave it a full letter grade more than it deserves by virtue of having crazy girls with weapons. And Inchou.
- Plot / Script – B – Enjoyable but nothing special.
