What does this mean?
Alto Goldfield is the story’s protagonist. He is a student at an academy that teaches magic and aims to be a master of all forms of magic. Alto Goldfield is close to failing a class on summoning magical and is in danger of being relegated for one year. He then finds an old summoning Grimoire. He follows the instructions and summons Vermeil, a powerful demon who has been sealed long ago. Alto can sometimes give Vermeil magic energy. She claims it by kissing him.

What was the first episode like?
Although I gave this episode a rating of 2.5, it is more like a average than a score. This episode, depending on your fetish, is either a 5, or 0, according to my view.
Vermeil in GoldThis anime seems to be the most trope-filled of all the seasons. It seems to not have any original ideas. It’s a fantasy tale set at a magic school. A young boy summons a demon to save his life. The tsundere, his childhood best friend, is secretly in love with him. He is also completely powerless. If you look up “pubescent male sexual fantasy” in the dictionary, there might just be a screenshot of this episode. If you’re looking for anything new—some kind of twist or game-changing mystery—you won’t find it here. It’s nothing but cliché smut… which might be exactly what you are looking for.
Any work that is genuinely embraced by me, knowing it as it is, I appreciate it. Vermeil in GoldIt is a titillating, wish-fulfilling experience from top to bottom. It doesn’t want it to be anything new, but it does want to be the best-selling album. I mean, it puts a voluptuous older woman in the “virgin killer” sweater and sets up a situation where Alto must continuously do “naughty” things with her. It’s basically shouting from the top of its lungs, “If this is your fetish, here I am!” And with relatively high production values and a solid voice cast, it’s certainly giving its all to deliver on that claim.
Do you ever dream of being deflowered in a big titty succubus girl? Have I got anime for you if you do! If you don’t, there are still plenty of anime I can offer. Vermeil in GoldIt isn’t.
There have been many series recently about sexually aggressive adult females trying to get at virginal teenage girls. If this is what you like, great! Vermeil in GoldIt’s one of those fetish shows that has very little else besides its core premise. The constant lack of consent for the sexual element made me grimace.
Vermeil might actually be quite a funny character, provided that the rest of her cast can stand up to her. In a micro-mini, backless sweater dress, she is looking great and will be admired by many. If she was summoned by someone open to her advances, and who wasn’t intimidated or confused by her constant sexual affections and offers for blow jobs, this could have been a great time for some lucky viewers. Respect and consent are key to making it a fun, exciting time. fanserviceI find it more attractive, even though it could turn into porn if she accepted my offers.
But that’s just one episode of the series. She gets to play Alto, who is just as squeaky-toothed as they come. He struggles to understand her advances and stammers. He’s only 15 years old. That’s quite normal. He may be open to her flirting at times, which is a good sign. But then, she pushes his boundaries, making it uncomfortable. Vermeil is able to find many ways to rub her boobs on him, which is what I think the episode’s best part. Those things are very heavy. I would look for things that will hold up to their weight.
Alto was a terrible friend to Lilia. She has a strong crush on him and demands Vermeil quit paying too much attention to him. She doesn’t have any personality, other than jealousy. She complains and shrieks. And considering how little Alto has going on, it’s obvious she’s there just to add conflict and/or fulfill the required role of “childhood friend”.
Either Vermeil in GoldYou will find it grinds your gears, but it won’t. It’s not worth the effort if you don’t like what it has to offer.
This episode contains hints that there is a better story. Mostly those concern Vermeil, the demon summoned by our hapless hero Alto Goldfield – we know that she was sealed in a book for untold years, and her statement about how it would be better for her to masquerade as a human in public because of human distrust of demons, paired with imagery in both the opening and ending theme, seems to indicate that she’s suffered greatly at human hands. I’d almost be willing to say that her aggressive physical pursuit of Alto is born of as much of a need to be “useful” to him as her need for his mana, but that may be taking things too far – or at least willfully ignoring the intense fanservice angle. All of this is to say, however, that Vermeil in GoldYou may be hiding more than you see in this episode.
It may require more courage than most viewers to get there. To put it simply, a lot of the “humor” comes from bad old sexual predation shenanigans, with Vermeil stroking Alto’s crotch several times despite him being very clear that that’s not what he wants from her. He’s constantly watching her sit on his lap and shove her breasts against different parts of his anatomy. While it is clearly intended to be humorous or entertaining, I cannot say I found it to be. It feels like an old-fashioned way of doing things. fanserviceThis is because the source manga was created in 2018.
There are hints, however, that there may be more to the story. Alto’s last name is “Goldfield” while “Vermeil” means a thinly gold-plated silver (AKA silver gilt), so there’s some symbolism there about Alto being the real thing while Vermeil sees herself as less-than, and the fact that Alto has such strong mana that he could only form a familiar contract with a being as powerful as a demon is a very interesting detail. I’m not inclined to pursue this show any further, but it isn’t without its potential and has wonderfully detailed background art – it seriously looks like a world I would love to live in. This could be the title that makes my regret about its preview guide entry, if nothing else.
Exemplifying where is the best way, I think. VermeilIts scene where the titular demon is introduced is where’s priorities lie. After a tenderly animated boob dance of our naked heroine mounting our unfortunate protagonist, she moves her hand from the smooth, featureless torso of his tightie whities to the flat waistband. This moment of cinematic storytelling is where we discover the true meaning of this show. It’s going be displaying its big tiddy-demon lady as much as it can, and all other displays will be done in phoned-in window dressing.
You might be able to watch an entire season of TV if you can tolerate anime boobs in a virgin-killer sweater. Here’s your anime for the season. If that’s not enough, there aren’t many other options. Alto, Vermeil, and the can of unseasoned lime beans that makes up our protagonist don’t have much in the form of chemistry, or even a funny back-and-forth. Their whole relationship is nothing but her sexy breasts and occasional ramblings about demon lore. They have a very natural relationship when they are around others. Vermeil is assertive to anyone who intimidates her summoner and she does the same to him, but it’s hard to see why these two would be a good duo outside of the promise that she might touch his downstairs one day.
This could be a fun bit of goofy and horny fun if Alto was more enthusiastic about Vermeil. Even his embarrassed reactions are subdued. This robs him of any chance for humor or sensuality. And that’s before we get to Alto’s insufferable childhood friend whose two jokes are “I am jealous of the big tiddy demon” and “I am horny for this potato boy” when she’s not being comically groped into submission by Vermeil. Vermeil, while not being irritating in her refusal to take crap from others around her, isn’t too bad. But she has no one to bounce off and she’s bored.
It does look good. This episode has a lively direction, aside from the obvious animation focuses. The whole episode is much more enjoyable than a more laborious approach, thanks to clever camera angles and playful storyboarding. Simple dialogue scenes are also included. Some nice flourishes add a little extra charm. The level of care taken is remarkable. ecchiThe title has received a lot of attention in the past seasons. This is not something you can take as a given. While the character designs feel a little too bland to make a big impression, they are well presented, even though they may not be all that exciting on their own.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to be better than World’s End HaremBeing entertaining and good is not the same thing as being competently executed horniness, and that’s what this premiere is all about. The only thing it has is competently executed, horniness. It’s not compelling character banter. There isn’t much plot other than the usual Anime Magic School stuff about passing magical tests. The setting is as simple as it can be. We are sorry. VermeilYou can, but it is important to have a heart beating beneath all that chest meat.
I am obliged to at least give Vermeil in GoldIt deserves some credit for its shamelessness. This production clearly reflects the efforts of a group of proud degenerates. They shared a common goal: To tell the story of the demon mommy who used her sex powers and turned the boys into the most popular at school. She could also smother them with her hands tied behind her back. Many people spend their whole lives trying to make their fantasies come true on paper and/or celluloid. They often end up with nothing. Vermillion In Gold is a shining example of the sheer power and persistence required to manifest one’s desires in the world. Perv-serverance is the power to manifest one’s will unto the world, if I may quote from Field of Dreams: “If you draw it, they will come.”
The story is about a dumb-as hell sex comedy about an idiot who summons the help of a lascivious succubus to get out of his failing magic school. It’s not trying be artistic; it’s simply trying to make its viewers laugh (and give them some material to deposit in their collective spank bank for future use). This account is important. Vermeil in Gold‘s success is tied to the responses of the two most subjective organs in a viewer’s body: Their funny bone, and…well, the other one.
Personally, it didn’t work. Even though they aren’t the self-insert avatars of a kink to which I am also apathetic, I find it difficult to interact with wet-blanket protagonists such as Yuji. Vermeil’s shtick is only intermittently funny—I will admit to chuckling at the awkward absurdity of her just straddling Yuji in the middle of class, for all of his schoolmates to see—but she’s not entertaining enough on her own to carry an entire show. I also have no love for the tired “jealous best friend who is romantically obsessed with the pile of mashed potatoes that is our protagonist for no discernable reason”.
Plus, Vermeil in GoldIts production values are too lax to be worthy of admiration from an aesthetic standpoint. Vermeil’s key scenes have clearly taken a lot of time and effort, but I feel that the crew has not paid enough attention to them. Staple EntertainmentI had to rush at the last moment to finish the remaining nineteen minutes of the premiere. Then, someone reminded me that they had to make a complete episode of television. This might not be as horrible as it could have been. But you won’t find me going back. Vermeil in GoldYou can get seconds in seconds very soon.
