Cover Description (MASSIVE SPOILERS): "There is no need for relationships". Kei Ogata carried with him a trying, sad past. His only joy in life was chatting and mailing as a different him on the internet. One day he met a kind gentle girl on the net named EVE and became friends with her. As time passed they began sharing a strong bond of friendship. Then the other day, Kei began suspecting classmate Midori Nagawa was EVE...

The Summer Festival has passed. Kei Ogata struggles with his own past; trying not to become the monster he hated so much. Midori, worried about her best friend Miki, looks to A,W for help. Little does she know that the very A,W is Kei, and that he was Miki's problem. After learning that Midori will soon be transferring out, Kei feared to get any closer to her. Will Kei be able to confess his love? Or will he forever be number two to his own alternate idenity, A,W?

Romance with a twist...
Going against the grain of the current crop of blackmail-themed hentai releases, Nutech presents Pure Mail, a sugary-sweet tale of romance and adolescent naivete. Or is it?

Appearances can be deceptive. While it's true that the primary theme of Pure Mail is the romance between two young people, there's more to it than that. Kei Ogata is our protagonist, a somewhat introverted and isolated individual. Through the course of two episodes we discover why, and it's not pretty. His Internet relationship with a girl simply known as EVE provides a level of human contact and warmth he's never experienced before. But he thinks he knows the true identity of EVE and soon faces a moral dilemma...

I can't delve too far into the storyline without giving the plot away (though the packaging description basically lays out the entire story. I'd advise not reading it if you buy the DVD) there are a total of four sex scenes in Pure Mail; two absolutely unnecessary (including one role-reversal blackmail thingy!) and two essential to the plot. One of these is a rape scene and while graphic, remains fairly short and isn't too exploitative. The character development and pacing is perfect, with an engrossing plot to boot. You could argue that at least one of the female cast have inherited the almost customary airhead disease, but crucially their feelings seem far more 'real' that the norm. Koihime this isn't. Incidentally, the H scenes are very explicit, but it's elementary. I'd have watched and enjoyed Pure Mail regardless.

The animation is pretty, though something about it looks a little strange at times. Obviously on a low budget, Pure Mail is unmistakably CG. Character designs are cute and the modern-day down-to-earth setting was refreshing, I particularly liked the festival scene during the first episode. Those computers can generate some funky firework effects.

Pure Mail isn't exactly 'pure' but it's a lot more 'real' than some of the fluff out there. I'll stick my neck out and say that Pure Mail is just excellent.
