Taketo Akutagawa has been admitted to Inspiration Academy, a school where geniuses from all over Japan come to learn. What is Taketo's talent? Writing porn novels. While this earned him scorn back in middle school, here, he can let his talents shine. Everything begins when, working for the school newspaper, he goes out to meet the school's genius clarinet player, Fukune Narukara. A love story is about to begin.

Originally a Light Novel, R-15 was adapted into an anime in the Summer 2011 Anime season.

Tropes in R-15 include:

 Taketo: "Boing, Boing, Boing"

  • Genki Girl: Kurabu
  • Girlish Pigtails: The Chief, Misa and, Katsuyo.
  • Goofy Print Underwear: Raika has bear print, Misa has the Number of the Beast on her's and Ran's has the words Only Girls.
  • Gun Porn: The Chief's room has many guns on her wall.
  • Hair Decorations
  • Hammerspace: Just how does Chief keep a long rope in her mouth...
  • Harem Seeker: Ran of freshmen girls, and Botan of "art" (read: nude girls she's gotten to let her Body Paint them). Not surprisingly, the two butt heads immediately.
  • Headbutt Thermometer: Utae gives the blushing Taketo one.
  • Ho Yay: Ritsu obviously has a crush on Taketo. Just watch Ritsu squirm when all he heard from Taketo is "I like you."
  • Hot Scoop: The Chief and Raika have the looks and the article-hungry attitude to qualify.
  • Hot Springs Episode: Episode 10.
  • How We Got Here: Episode 3.
  • Human Aliens: The chief is thought to be one.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Ran Musen sighed at Taketo's unhealthy daydreaming in class while loading unhealthy photos on her notebook.
    • And again in episode 5 she wonders "Why Fukune attracts weirdoes?"
    • Whenever Ran critisizes Taketo for perverted behaviour can be considered this. A lesbian who insists that her harem call her Onee-sama simply cannot take the moral highground against a porn writer.
      • At one point she gets in-directly called on it too, when Misa comments that she can sense a far darker aura around Ran (and Botan) when she was seducing a girl then she could from the perveted spirt, a disguised Taketo.
  • Idiot Hair: Tsukuru and Kurabu
  • Idol Singer: Utae Sonokoe
  • Imagine Spot: Taketo goes through one of these out of the implication that Ran Musen and Aki Yosano might be Schoolgirl Lesbians, judging by their intimacy.
    • Hell, his fantasies are frequent and rabid.
    • And he with his words he send Utae, Raika, Botan, Mai and Santa Maria.
  • Indirect Kiss: Taketo notices that Utae is feeding him with her chopsticks.
    • Taketo licking Fukune's damp clarinet reed.
  • Kiss of Death: How Ran finished of Botan.
  • Lens Flare Censor: Taken to absurd levels. The lens flares are beyond mere flares, and involve large swaths of white covering up most of the screen. For large parts of the episode.
  • Locked in a Room: Invoked. Taketo gets locked in the room with Katsuyo so she manage him out of his slump.
    • Double subverted -- she can leave.
    • As well as people can visit.
      • Played straight when he gets locked in the freezer building with Utae. They were in serious trouble if not for the Chief rescuing them.
  • Loveable Sex Maniac: Taketo of course.
  • Love Triangle: Fukune->Taketo<-Utae
  • Lyrical Dissonance: The song Class 1-3 uses in the choral competition is a song with a dignified melody and very dirty lyrics.
  • Mad Artist: Botan.
    • Body Paint: Botan's favorite form of art, she's rather infamous for it. In episode 5 we hear about the "Painted On Uniform Incident" (which involved some poor girl going to school in, well, guess), and she makes herself first known (to cast and viewer alike) by painting one of Ran's harem... leaving her ... dazed. Much to Ran's ire.
  • Mad Scientist: Tsukuru Kagaku, introduced by firing a heat-seeking missile that chases Taketo across the school grounds.
  • Magical Girl: Fukune inspires Taketo to write her as one with a magical clarinet. This quickly turns into porn.
  • Meaningful Name: Sonokoe Utae; it's written as 園声 謡江, but sounds the same as 其の声 歌え; when written this way, the surname and given name (respectively) mean "that voice" and "sing".
  • Mills and Boon Prose: Just about everything Taketo writes.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Utae.
  • Most Writers Are Writers: Taketo is a writer of erotic novels, in a light novel that isn't exactly light on fanservice itself.
  • Narrator: Kiya Star, introduced as the school's genius narrator. Yes, she's diegetically narrating.
  • Naughty Tentacles: Mai's fantasy curtest of Taketo.
  • Nice Girl: Utae. She's the only girl who ever tries to defend Taketo from the ire brought about by his reputation.
  • Nosebleed: Taketo every now and then.
    • And it manages to short circuit Tsukuru's crazy magnet.
  • Number of the Beast: Misa has them on her panties.
  • Oblivious to Love: Taketo
  • Odango: Utae
  • Onee-Sama: Ran has her freshmen girls harem addresses her as this.
  • Panty Shot: By no means an uncommon occurrence, but episode four is focused around almost nothing but. It's all a setup by Raika and Tsukuru.
  • Pet the Dog: Raika helps Taketo escape from the Girls Dorm.
  • Phrase Catcher: After Ritsu twist Taketo words.

 Taketo: "Ritsu the formula."
