Yuma and Hotaru were two girls who had been friends since childhood. Yuma had a boyfriend and because she was nervous, she invited Hotaru and her boyfriend for a double date. Hotaru then approached Yuma as “practice” so she didn’t feel nervous with her boyfriend. But, Hotaru and Yuma soon realized they were in love, surpassing their feelings toward their boyfriends.
Without much ado, the first episode of NTR: Netsuzou TRap directly going out presenting the intimacy between Yuma and Hotaru. Although the title includes the word NTR (means netorare), and the yuri (lesbian) romance still feels quite taboo, the romance shown in this anime does not seem to be as “complicated” as Kuzu no Honkai, the winter 2017 anime which is still being talked about until now.
Although in terms of sound and visual the show does not feel too prominent (especially with the animation still feels rough in few scenes), NTR: Netsuzou TRap can be an option for for a yuri or romance story with a less complex conflict.
