Haruka 2 is the newest episode in Fighting Cuties Haruka series. This episode picks things up were the first one left off and you once again find yourself in the role as Harukas boyfriend. The animation is roughly 24 minutes long and the filesize clocks in at around 1.3 GB and costs $14 over at DLsite.com.
Not much has changed here. Physically, Haruka is pretty much identical to her previous self in every way except that she has a new haircut, which works, her body shape is still great, so if it ain’t broken don’t fix it, right? Her face is really cute and it’s framed nicely by her new haircut. The only thing I thought was a bit off was her extremely thin waist compared to her breasts and thighs, which gives her body a very pronounced hourglass shape and it can look a bit off when she’s standing up. Luckily she doesn’t spend a lot of time standing around, if you know what I mean *hint*.
A slight difference I noticed was that her behavior was much more confident that in the previous episode, which is a cool detail that I liked that the artist thought of.
Also here nothing has changed, the textures and lighting setup seems to be exactly the same, which is unfortunate as the artist could have taken this chance to improve on primarily the lighting. However I can imagine a couple of reasons for the artist not to change the graphics at all, for the sake of consistency and lower production time for example.
That being said, the graphics work, the lighting make the character textures and the environment look a bit dull but it’s still watchable and for the most part you won’t seen much of the environment except for the floor or some blinds.
In general, the animations were sluggish and not very smooth at all. It was particularly noticeable when the characters where changing position or moving around in the room. The humping part of the sex scenes were a bit better but still suffered from the slow tempo that was consistent throughout the whole animation, speeding things up slightly would have made the movements a bit more realistic.
The best thing about the movie and also what I liked the most about Haruka were her facial animations. The breast jiggle also deserves a shout out as it was well made and maintained a high quality throughout the whole movie. It’s clear that her face is where the artist put most of his energy as Haruka smiles, smirks, bites her lip, talks and reacts to everything that her boyfriend (you) does. This breathes life into her but is at the same time overshadowed by most of the not so smooth animations.
The sex scenes here are very vanilla and basically fills in for some of the scenes that were missing in the 1st episode. There’s some missionary, cowgirl and doggy. There’s also a blowjob scene, well actually more than half the movie is one huge HJ/BJ in a few different positions with plenty of variety such as licking, sucking, teasing, face fucking and swallowing. Not necessarily a bad thing since Harukas face gets to work a lot and show off those great facial animations but because of the “extreme vanilla nature” it does get repetitive after a while and some of the other sex scenes feels rushed because of it.
Overall I think it’s a definite improvement from the 1st title, there’s a bit more content this time with more variation, however it feels a bit like a DLC of stuff that really should have been in the the 1st episode. Whether or not you should buy this depends on a few things. If you liked the 1st episode it’s definitely worth getting. If you haven’t seen the 1st episode or didn’t like the 1st one I would probably only recommend this one if you really like vanilla action, otherwise you will most likely not feel satisfied.
