Summary

A decent game, but ultimately unsatisfying.

The Good

Do You Like Horny Bunnies? stands out solely in the area of artwork. The animations, while short, are nice - and the special CGs are gorgeous. The CGs hold up quite well when compared to a recent anime series like Love Hina.

The Bad

Unfortunately, Bunnies makes missteps, if only minor ones, in every other area. While the artwork is top-notch, the character designs are dull. I found only the characters of Akina and Sae to be attractive. That would be okay if their characterizations or storylines were interesting, but they aren't. Every character in Bunnies fills a typical anime/bishoujo archetype. Sae is your typical sweet girl next door, who picks on Yukari because she's his cousin (er, but we'll just ignore that little detail). Akina is the oversexed older woman who has trouble coming to terms with her need to be loved and protected. Ryo is the perpetually angry girl who hates men (virtually a clone of Motoko from Love Hina). Hiromi is the shy, quiet girl with glasses, and Chimaki is the token "not quite of age"-looking girl. These are cookie cutter characters, and were it not for the fact that a couple of them are drawn quite attractively, there would be little reason to play this game at all. In addition, the girls' plotlines are dull, and very similar from character to character. The choices necessary to end up with a particular girl are obvious.

The Bottom Line

The thing about Do You Like Horny Bunnies? is that it is pleasant enough as it goes by, but you likely won't have much reason to play again. You may not even remember any of the girls' endings once you have completed them, since they all tend to bleed together. Personally, the girls' storylines were so similar (aside from Akina's), that I didn't bother finishing them all. I didn't much want to see the special CGs either, since I didn't think the character designs were all that attractive.

There isn't anything particularly wrong with Bunnies, but it's difficult to recommend spending your money on a good game when great ones are out there.
