They are by far the best anime! We counts down the best anime to come out all the time, including the likes of Lingerie Senshi Papillon Rose, Eguchi Hisashi no Kotobuki Gorou Show, Nudl Nude 2, and more!
40: Lingerie Senshi Papillon Rose
English: Papillon Rose OVA
MAL Score: 4.67
Tsubomi is a savvy and horny school girl who works at a lingerie club, a gentlemen’s bar where scantily clad young women serve drinks to the patrons. She is useless at her job but is blackmailing her boss so she won’t get fired. One day she runs into a gorgeous young man who she takes to bed. She meets into a perverted talking cat with a butterfly on its forehead, who recruits her to be a magical soldier. She has to fight off a dominatrix elf woman called Beene, a minion of Regina Apis, a matriarch bent on chaos and forming her new Dynasty. Tsubomi is learning of her powers when she is rescued by an oddly familiar masked man, known only as Dandelion. The plot of this anime is completely farcical and parodies the magical girl genre and Sailor Moon in particular.
The story is horrible, supposed to be ecchi but it’s almost a very bad, and cheap, hentai. Art is just alright; although watching your computer’s wallpaper should be funner, watching this anime at least doesn’t bothers the eye. The soundtrack is very poor and lacking creativity, while sound effects are hilariously bad. The characters are terrible; their movements, their voice, the way of conducting themselves, it’s all bad.
Seriously, I was in pain while watching this OVA. It’s horrible.
If I had to describe this using words, I would call it “Butt Attack Punisher Girl meets Sailor Moon parody with a touch of hentai”
If I actually had to describe it, it would be “wuhhh uhhh huh? what? aeeehhhehhh the FUDGE?! Σ(O_O；) uhhhhhhhhh
Case for “Worst, Best Thing I’ve Ever Seen”:
Rating: 1 penis shaped whip out of 10
I love magical girl parody anime. There’s actually enough of these out there now for it to be basically an entire genre of its own, with classics like Excel Saga, and some lesser known ones like the aforementioned Butt Attack Punisher Girl, or Punie. They work because it’s funny. Everyone likes watching ruined, gross, vulgar, or perverted versions of shows they liked as kids- it’s a proven fact, what with all these abridged series going around nowadays.
It’s just good fun to turn something that you’ve grown out of (sometimes) into a newly relevant and entertaining thing.
I didn’t watch Sailor Moon… but somehow I don’t think this was the case. I don’t know that Sailor Moon fans >ever> needed to see a sex crazed replacement for their heroine fight against a BDSM lady and her leather clad cat army with a large vibrator.
At the same time, the WTF factor is strong with this one. Flaming breast milk? Boob bombs? a whip that attaches to penises and sucks the life out of the guy? Yeah, I saw some new things in this one, myself.
Case for “Best Worst Thing I’ve Ever Seen”:
Rating: 10 pairs of exploding boob bombs
Like I said above, when magical girl parodies are good, they’re great. If a sleazy knockoff of a much beloved chinese cartoon with some nudity and a LOT of everything sex related appeals to you, this is riotous. If not, then it’s kinda gross, like a 12 year old’s edgy wet dream version of Sailor Moon. A girl who works at a strip club bangs a dude with magical semen and then gets the power to transform into an even more scantily clad heroine to fight some sex reference villains. I didn’t think it was possible to make it sound even more stupid. I amaze myself sometimes.
I’m honestly surprised that studio Arms didn’t make this. It looks just like their flavor of edgy hentai action schlock made for kids that think boobs and sex toys are the height of comedy.
With all that said, I’m just going to give this a 5. It’s both terrible AND amazing-ly weird.
If I find myself saying “WTF” more than three times in the span of 20 minutes, I think it’s got something going here. Whatever that is, though, I don’t really know.
Just couldn’t believe the story is exact to Sailor Moon (minus the ecchiness), didn’t even bother to mix it up a bit. All that was add was the tasteless sexual innuendo. The animation was rough on the movements of the characters, and the character designs didn’t make sense. I excepted that a little more money should have been spend on a OVA. It’s just all ridiculous.
However this anime did make me laugh on how, at the same time, creative and uncreative and unoriginal this anime is.
You can watch this if you are in a mocking mood.

Originally released as a feature part of Studio Pierrot’s video magazine show Anime V Comic Rentaman (アニメ?V?コミック レンタマン) along with Abashiri Ikka, Yumemakura Baku Twilight Gekijou and Akai Hayate.
There is a strict criteria you need to meet to enjoy this show. Do you think cringe humour is funny? Are you like 12, and discovered s*x jokes for the first time? Do you think inc*st and r*pe is hilarious? Are you looking for an anime SO bad, it makes you cry? If yes, you have come to the right place!
Kyoto Animation, I knew you had obscure, dark roots, but oh my good. This wasn’t even a ‘so bad it’s funny’ show. Please don’t watch this.

37: Eguchi Hisashi no Nantoka Narudesho!
Japanese: 江口寿史のNANTOKA NARUDESHO!
MAL Score: 5.01
Part anime, part live action, and part puppet show. This MAL entry duration will reflect the anime segment only. Nantoka Narudesho is a series of seemingly unrelated sketches. Viewer-be-warned, some sketches have not aged well and would be found extremely offensive due to racism, sexual depravity, and homophobia.
Just a warning for those who want to watch this…DONT. I had the pleasure of wasting 40 minutes of my life on this film and it wasn’t worth it.
Couldn’t rate zero so in the system so it got a 1. Your looking for a real consistent story huh? Well your at the wrong place… the whole 43 minutes is a confusing mush of gag shorts, weird live actions, and random creepy looking puppets.
This is basically a perverted poorly animated Anime with chunks of live action and puppets thrown in.
most music reminds me of the 80-90’s style so its brought me back, but most of it was generic sounds of those decade.
too many characters, and none of them I care for tbh.
I would rather watch paint dry than ever watch this thing again.
Overall 1/10 would rate a 0 if I could on the main rating.
I feel like whatever this is they should have just stuck to Manga comedy shorts that these came from. If you want to watch this than go a head but I don’t recommend it.

I think it’s better to do not watch it. It’s waste of time, even if it is about 6 minutes. Surely you have many better things to watch instead.
Good to laugh if you have humour to that, and good to be angry thinking that this would be good.
It’s too good to be in this

33: Dengeki Oshioki Musume Gootaman: Gootaman Tanjou-hen
English: Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman
MAL Score: 5.23
Mari Amachi is a very devout Christian who transfers to Perfect Religion Academy. A school devoted to all religions of the world in effort to make it’s students the next world leaders in religion. Her friend Saori is kidnapped by the Black Buddha cult; a group who wishes to take away religious freedom though force and brainwashing. Mari prays to God for help but Buddha answers the call, instead! Mari aspires only to help her friend and she is transformed into Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gotaman. Between fighting bad guys, making a deal with Buddha, and wearing scandalous costumes, is it more than Mari can take?
For the sake of brevity I am could to refer to this series as just Gautaman. The story is as basic as they come. Mari is a devout Christian and a new student to a private school that caters to many different faiths. Unfortunately for her it is also home to an evil cult known as Black Buddha. After her new friend and roommate is captured by the cult to be brainwashed into becoming a worshiper, Mari is given the power of Gautaman to save her. Much to her shame and the delight of everyone else her costume involved a lot of skimpy clothing topped off with a sumo belt that exposes her backside. Stay with me here. Yes its one of if not the most completely ridiculous situations I have ever seen but the thing that this show does so right is that it knows it’s ridiculous, and that’s the whole point.
The parody is quite good, it takes aim at everything from Japanese pop culture to Star Wars. The Star Wars references were very amusing since I was such a fan of it growing up. Having a guy in a sumo suit with a Darth Vader mask on was almost too much to bear. There is a lot of echii comedy mixed in as well but really it is pretty tame from what I was expecting. Besides a few boobs and some sexual humor it’s fairly clean. The main problem people are likely to have is that a good majority of the parody is going to be lost on the current generation. Even something like Star Wars is 30 years old now, and almost everyone is going to not know any of the 70s J-Pop singers or manga writers. Another issue is that it doesn’t end. After doing a little research on this title there seems to be a sequel that will finish things up. The comedy is good enough to carry it that honestly I didn’t really care about that.
There isn’t any real depth to any of the characters which is really to be expected for something this short. That doesn’t mean that they weren’t enjoyable though. Mari and Saori were both charming and likable as the main protagonists. The supporting cast and villains are equally as shallow and mainly rely on their various visual stereotypes to build their characters.
For an anime this old, the artwork really does hold up. The various fight scenes and character designs are very well drawn and animated. Like most series from this era the colors are a bit dull and lifeless however. There is not a lot to comment on the sound, the acting was good but there is little music to critique either.
I was really tempted to go a little higher on my overall rating. Gautaman has a number of flaws, its humor is extremely dated and the lack of an ending. However if you can appreciate the humor and not take it too seriously I think you might enjoy it too.
Artwork and Animation: 8
For a low budget early 90s title, this one has really polished and fluid animation. Flashy colors, smooth frames, and plenty of action kept it interesting to watch, and wasn’t bogged down by garbage stillframes.
Sound and Voice Acting: 7
Everyone in this sounds like they’re hopped up on too much caffeine and barely containing themselves. It’s very energetic, funny, and entertaining.
Characters and Story: 7
Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman (Gautaman from here on out) is about a young devout Christian girl, Mary (haha name puns), who meets Buddha, gets superpowers, defeats Scary Newspaper Brainwashing Demon, Sumo Darth Vader, and the dopey perv Principal to bring justice to Perfect Religion Academy.
After her friend Saori is captured by the Black Buddha gang, Mary is gifted the powers of Gautaman, which consist of wearing a sumo belt and magical visor that stops anyone from recognizing you, except your butt, that is. Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha himself, appears in person to explain what’s going on (and smash through the 4th wall!). Buddha also makes up the powers as he goes along, which lead to hilarious results.
Mary leads a double life, as does any good magical girl. By day, she’s a repressed, overly pure and innocent student- by… crisis, she becomes GAUTAMAN! Stripperifically clad and with ridiculous powers to match, she’s out to whoop some ass _with_ her ass. The evil Black Buddha gang, antagonists to… world religion? try to stop her in the name of all that’s unholy. Borderline irreverence, ridiculousness, and over the top WTF ensue. Their only lead? A butt print left by Gautaman in her first scrap with the forces of stupid. But whose butt matches the cast?
The aforementioned Scary Newspaper wielding Brainwashing Demon is the first villain, wielding newspapers like shuriken, and if you’re exposed to the print, it shortens your life by 100 days!!! For the love of all that’s holy, not the fine print!
Second up is SUMO DARK VADER- I’m not even kidding. I’ve never seen such an original and obviously non parodical villain in my life. This has to be seen to believed.
I laughed my butt off, pun intended. Gautaman is full of ancient history (read: 70s Japanese pop culture references), Star Wars references and puns, butts, name puns, butts, and general mild religious mockery. The WTF force is strong with this one.
When I saw the title, this one went straight on the watchlist. I’m a fan of so-bad-it’s-good movies from watching too many Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes. I was not disappointed. Butt Attack Punisher Girl is a buttload of laughs, “what?’s”, and “this is the dumbest, best thing I’ve ever seen’s”.
Oh. Yeah. 45m of nonstop so-bad-it’s-good stupidity, you’ll wish you got buttslammed by Gautaman.
If you really love “so bad it’s good” anime, you may be interested in a little title called Butt Attack Punisher Girl! Judging from the name alone, you know you’re probably in for a VERY stupid anime. In this instance your first ASSumption would be correct.
One thing I feel we as anime fans too often ignore is the anime director. With the exception of a few directors like Hayao Miyazaki and Hiroyuki Imaishi, people simply don’t give a fuck who directed the series. This is a HUGE mistake, since having a good director or a bad director can make a world of difference. This anime was directed by Iku Suzuki, one of the worst anime directors in history! This man has the fucking touch of death. Everything he goes near is absolutely HORRIBLE! If you don’t believe me that directors make a difference, it is time to play Good Director/Bad Director.
First we will look at a good director: Mamoru Kanbe. This guy can be put on the worst team in existence, and if it is possible to save the project, he will do it. He is basically the Tim Howard of anime directors. You may know him as the co-director for Baccano, Card Captor Sakura, and main director of Elfen Lied. “What!? But But…literaturenerd-san, Elfen Lied sucks balls!” Consider the following: this was a series that NO ONE expected to succeed in the slightest. It was based on an objectively terrible manga with no readership or fanbase, had virtually zero budget, was animated by an absolute JOKE of an animation studio known only for hentai, and the man assigned to write the dialogue was mostly just used to writing hentai. Kanbe single-handedly re-wrote the episodes, made his own ending, fixed 90% of the complete bullshit from the manga, salvaged all that actually worked from the manga, and by himself made an underdog series with ZERO business succeeding into one of the most popular and beloved anime of its decade. No one can turn a piece of dog shit into an absolutely flawless diamond, but Kanbe absolutely can take some of the absolute worst projects and make them watchable. He was assigned to helm a series about an all girl military band in Switzerland that must play bugles to inspire troop moral in WW1! He made something THAT fucking stupid actually somewhat watchable and above a 7.5 rating here on MAL. Now lets look at what a bad director can do!
An example of a bad director would be Iku Suzuki. In addition to directing Butt Attack Punisher girl, this guy directed: EYES of Mars, DearS, Traning/sleeping with Hinako, Happy Lesson, and FUCKING Dark Cat! The average rating of the series this man directed is around 5 on MAL. Do you have any idea just how hard that is to accomplish?! Iku Suzuki belongs to that special breed of HORRIBLE directors who are both ambitious and totally shameless. They don’t just stop after making one fucking train wreck of a movie like the 1 time directors of The Room, Birdemic, Manos the Hands of Fate. These rare, special bad directors continue to make project after project of the absolute worst shit imaginable. Iku Suzuki is in the company of directors like: Coleman Francis, Chester Novell Turner, Ed Wood, Godfrey Ho, and Ulli Lommel. You may have noticed I excluded examples like: Shamylan, Boll, and Friedberg, because those guys suck, but they actually make money and SORT OF know what the fuck they’re doing. If you have ever seen a movie by any of the first 5 bad directors I mentioned, you will know that you are dealing with an entirely different category of shit!
Story and characters 1/10
The story is that a devout Christian girl named Mary decides to attend a school supposedly designed to create peace and harmony between the major world religions. However, the school is actually run by an evil cult called the “black Buddhas” who wish to take away people’s freedom of religion and convert everyone to their cult by force. When the only ethnic Japanese Hindu in history gets captured by the cultists, Mary prays to God and Buddha answers instead. Buddha gives her a magical Sumo loincloth and tells her to use her butt to fight against evil! The fight scenes are gloriously absurd and I love the fact that she literally KILLS her opponents with her butt. Once defeated, the cult members turn back into their normal selves and leave ordinary corpses, which Mary feels sort of bad about because they were innocent people that were brainwashed. Let me repeat that, our hero murders innocent people that were brainwashed by a cult…with her ass cheeks! If you’re head isn’t exploding from the sheer stupidity of this series, there is something wrong with you! The story doesn’t even have a proper ending because only a single pilot episode was ever made! After the pilot episode, the studio cut all funding because it was just too stupid! I would like you to consider all the TERRIBLE anime that during the OVA golden days of the early 1990s were able to get funding for more than 1 episode. Ninja Resurrection, the head bashingly retarded anime about a samurai fighting Crystal Dragon Jesus, was able to get 3 episodes. Mad Bull 34 was able to get 4 full hour episodes. This fucking piece of shit couldn’t even convince the same studios to let it have more than 1 episode! WOW! Bravo Mr. Suzuki! Bravo!
Although not the worst art I have ever seen in an anime, that would probably go to Suzuki’s other masterpiece Dark Cat, this was still pretty fucking bad. Early 1990s echii OVAs were all about showing some ass and titties because full 26 episode sheer fanservice anime didn’t exist yet! In the early 1990s there was no Queen’s Blade, Ikki Tousen, Rail Wars, etc. If you wanted to see anime ass and titties you needed to watch short, shitty OVAs like Plastic Little. Unfortunately, they couldn’t hire the esteemed Mr. Urushihara from Plastic Little for this project, because he is literally Rembrandt compared to these chumps!
This anime DOES have one redeeming factor that actually makes it far superior to anything else Suzuki has ever directed. It is actually ENJOYABLY bad. Many of the scenes are so fucking stupid you simply can’t help but laugh at them. Butt Attack Girl fights a Sumo Wrestler Darth Vader complete with the helmet, voice, and respirator sounds! She then kills him by flying into the air and slamming into him with her ass so hard that it caves in his fucking thoracic cavity! I don’t even have words to adequately describe how awesomely stupid that is!
This anime is absolute garbage, but at least it made me laugh a couple times. By actually being enjoyably terrible instead of gratingly terrible, this was BY FAR the best effort by director Iku Suzuki! When you have directed about 15 anime and the best thing you have ever done is called “Butt Attack Punisher Girl”, you should probably consider entering a new career!
32: Yaruki Manman
MAL Score: 5.25
Kazuma is the successor of the Shinno family which leads the sex scene. But now the sex scene doesn’t bring much money so father Shino wants his son to visit a sex-study to earn some experience.
But while being on the sex training he must not ejaculate in front of any of the women. When he comes, he’ll lose his heir. The hot Japanese geishas make it very difficult to hold on until the end. Will he finish his training?
I believe I have never seen such an important and significant Hentai, with actual decent amount of data and information for those who watch it, ever in my 30 years of existence.
I can say, that I hope that when one day my future children start their most likely path of watching such thematic, I hope they get to watch this one Hentai as a base for their actual knowledge.
I watched this Hentai Dubbed by the channel Playboy (it can easily be found) – as far as Dubbing goes, that was one of the best Hentai dubbing I ever came across, it pays off the experience and knowledge in the acting adult industry, and any vocal noises exceeded most if not all I got to hear so far.
The story is quite well thought, with detail, thorough character building on a psychological basis, which made watching quite enjoyable – another point that tends to be lacking in Hentai, for reasons I understand. But such well build base, did not take away an inch from the erotic factor, as their background came with visual stimulation (conjoining pleasurable with usefulness in one scoop)
The art is good, and although there was shown no issues with the female anatomy being drawn with no censorship, the author Chose to add something else to it as the Hentai continues, by using symbolism to show certain emotions and characteristics to the body and to sensations, which are hard to portray in a simple normal drawing, yet are felt and experienced in real life.
So it is known that the portrayal has a reason and is a choice, to help the viewers relate more to what is truly felt and experienced, to give a different notion, as in the beginning of the Hentai the female characters are shown in detail and with no censorship whatsoever.
It does have humor, to add some lightness to quite heavier and detailed matters and situations experienced by significant characters, characters which do show the variety of people we can find in life, their different reasons, which I found outstanding – a blow of fresh air in a very stereotyped world, where we know nothing, and repeat concepts and “hear-says”.
The sound was good, made very good thanks to the dubbing.
This Hentai will be added to my Favorites, as it is a first, a pioneer – a lonely pioneer.
It is one of the few, possibly only, Hentais that actually has informative and formative value to all men, it shows a portrayal of nearly the actual truth – how the female body feels, how to act, what to have in consideration, how to truly pleasure a partner, and a rather fairer portrayal of a woman’s biology, body, physical sensitivity.
Which is not something we come across. Adult industry is merely acting, inaccurate concepts played out just for the enjoyment of the watcher, with no base on how things actually feel for a female in real life.
As a result, we have ignorant fellow men, and women who truly believe there must be something wrong with themselves for not feeling pleasure out of the rough shallow and fast approach seen in the Adult Industry and Hentais of sorts. This Hentai, actually teaches (better than most, at least) and shows, in an amusing way.
It is a rare treasure, indeed.
My thanks to who created it.
31: Dengeki Oshioki Musume Gootaman R: Ai to Kanashimi no Final Battle
English: Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman R
MAL Score: 5.41
Gootaman is back, and ready to bring justice to the Black Buddha gang who are still terrorizing the PR Academy! Unfortunately her alter ego Mari has fallen in love with the group’s leader Tobishima, who has been tasked with killing the bare bottomed hero! Will their romantic feelings overcome his murderous intent, or is Mari destined to be alone as the scantily-clad champion forever?
The story picks up where the original left off. Mari continues the fight as Gautaman against Tobishima and Black Buddha. Both carry on a relationship with each other completely unaware that they are archrivals. The echii content is ramped up as the story features a lot more nudity, sexual humor, and yuri content, however you don’t ever feel like it’s been shown simply to titillate your hormones. Most of it is pretty humorous. There is not nearly the number of pop culture references in this story as the previous one, but the most notable and best one is from the final battle which features Mari doing battle with the Terminator.
Now I am certainly not going to tell you that this is anime gold here. The story is silly, the humor is perverted, and most of the characters have the weight and substance of a marshmallow. Like its predecessor, Gautaman knows it’s ridiculous and silly and never does it try to be something more than it is. I mean seriously, it’s about a girl who smashes evil wearing a thong, with her ass. If you can’t find something to laugh at about that, you either don’t have a sense of humor or you just find anything echii distasteful.
While the characters are not particularly deep, they are very likable. We aren’t shown any real new about any of the characters. However Mari and Saori still manage to be interesting. Mari’s relationship with Tobishima and Saori are explored in greater detail but not really resolved satisfactorily. Though I can’t really hold it too much against the show because that’s not really what it’s about. Tobishima manages to become much more likable and perhaps tragic than he appeared in the first OVA. The cast is fairly small which works in its favor.
Visually, while dated, I found its animation and art to be quite good. When compared to other series of this age it, like its prequel, holds up well. The battles were fun, and the parody of the Terminator at the end was great. There is very little music but the acting was good.
Overall, Gautaman is sure to give everyone a few laughs. I enjoyed it quite a bit, and gave it the score I almost gave to the original series. If you enjoy slapstick and parody comedies then you should definitely have this little gem on your list.
You know, nobody would have ever thought that a ludicrously stupid and intentionally bad OVA like Gautaman would ever warrant a sequel; but here it is in all of its ass-inine glory! Ecchi haters beware: the behind is strong with this one!
Just like Gautaman 1, this one is super low budget cheesy 90s schlock. The difference between this and regular schlock is that this is lovably BAD. More boobies and booty show up here than before, and more ridiculous villains than you can shake your moneymaker at.
Artwork and Animation: 7
Again, pretty flashy and fluid for bargain bin, late-night, no budget goofiness.
Sound and Voice Acting: 6
No Darth Vader breathing noises in this one, but there are quite a few Michael Bay style exploding buildings! With groaners like: “Make like a tree and leave with us”, and “Think long and hard about what you’ve done with your heart… NO, WITH YOUR BUTT!!!” there’s laughs to be had throughout the silliness.
Nothing special, Buddha shows again, up riding the Reading Rainbow to LITERALLY smash through the fourth wall:
Buddha:”If her belt gets sucked off, she will DIE!”
Girl in class:”STOP GIVING US EXPOSITION AND SAVE HER YOU IDIOT!”
Baddies include: Monstrous anti-villain Frankenmuscle, the sensitive giant; The Teenage Mutant Ninja Octopi, with BUTT SUCKING POWER!; Star Platinum; Super Shonen Parody Man aka love interest aka principal; and finally, THE TERMINATOR.
That’s right- the pop culture references continue in the most ridiculous way possible. You thought Dark Vader was awesome? A Jotaro Kujo lookalike goes ORAORAORA on a building, levels it entirely with his fists, it explodes, and he then turns into the Terminator. You heard it here first.
As a continuation of Gautaman 1, it picks up right where the last one left off. That is, somewhere between Nobodygivesacrap Avenue and Whydoievencare Boulevard. There’s a buttload of awkwardness in the form of a downright creepy love triangle, and one weird non ending that leaves you with a “what even?” reaction… much like the rest of Gautaman in general.
Enjoyment and Overall: 8, 7
What do I like about Gautaman? It’s not pretentious. It “knows” it’s stupid. It knows it’s the butt of a lot of jokes. Gautaman doesn’t care, it doesn’t give a flying butt slam. The reference game is a bit toned down, which I missed, but there’s just enough fodder here to make it goofy and schlocky enough to be enjoyable.
If you’re one of the like 10 people who saw the original Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman, you owe it to yourself to finish the saga and see the
FINAL BATTLE BETWEEN LOVE AND TRAGEDY: GAUTAMAN R!
I wrote a very positive review of the prequel here;
The sequel features Mari, or Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman, continuing her battle against the Black Buddha cult. Unfortunately, that’s about the only quality left intact.
You know how the original focused on zany characters and situations, and just tried to be funny? Well, that’s gone. The enemies here are bland and they don’t even attempt a joke for long portions of the run time.
What has it been replaced by? Well, for one, there is more nudity and sexual content, and now it’s presented for its own sake, annoying the portion of the audience that doesn’t care about poorly-animated softcore porn from 1994.
However, the largest difference is how much time is spent focusing on emotional melodrama, particularly a love triangle between Mari and Tobishima (secretly her archenemy) and the lesbian lust Mari’s roommate Saori feels for her. Throughout these nauseating scenes, which occupy far more time than the fights, the anime treats itself dead seriously, and genuinely expects viewers to buy into its romances.
This, from an anime featuring tentacle rape monsters in its first few minutes, including Mari being violated by an octopus in a pose similar to Hokusai’s “Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife”;
Since they’ve abandoned the humor and colorful enemies and techniques, what we’re left with is a really crappy, stupid romance mixed with equally lousy softcore porn. Watch the original, but avoid this disappointing trash.
30: Otaku no Seiza
MAL Score: 5.51
Anime based on Otaku no Seiza: in Another World, on the Turbo CD, and Otaku no Seiza: An Adventure in the Otaku Galaxy, for the NES, which were two Role-Playing games, published by M&M, released in Japan in 1991 and 1993.
29: Princess Minerva
Japanese: プリンセス ミネルバ
MAL Score: 5.52
Princess Minerva enters a tournament that offers the winner a fortune. But when her bodyguard gets kidnapped by an evil sorceress, things really start to heat up.
Princess Minerva is an anime based on, but is a prequel to, a video game about a group of extremely scantily clad women trying to defeat yet another scantily clad woman. With such a premise I see no way that this could turn out as anything but a masterpiece… of schlock.
The anime begins by introducing you to the Kingdom of Whistler, ruled by King Whistler XII. Aside from basically every resident of the kingdom having an unfortunate name there also seems to be a rule that women can at most only barely cover themselves just enough so that this won’t be classified as outright porn. This is one of *those* fantasy settings, the ones where the women get to wear bikinis into battle while touting them as the most powerful armour in existence. I’d personally prefer it if they wore cats.
Anyway, soon you also get to meet the lovely Princess Minerva herself voiced, in the ADV dub, by Jessica Calvello whose ear-splitting shrieks and window-shattering laugh will destroy your sense of hearing before the anime even hits the five minute mark.
The entire dub is absolutely horrendous and I have no idea how anyone thought that these performances were anywhere near good. From the outright annoying as in Minerva’s case to the outright hilarious like Tiffany Grant’s rendition of the holy cleric Orlin or the main antagonist Dynastar voiced by one Pam Rosenberger who I’m not exactly convinced wasn’t just someone whom ADV just found on the street and gave a role to, Princess Minerva’s dub cast is sure to never let your ears rest.
Oh and don’t worry, the characters themselves are about as laughable as the dub’s voice acting, which I’m sure in some twisted way means that the actors did a good job. None of the characters really get any development besides “this is a cleric” or “this is a warrior”, and sure you could attribute that to the very short time the anime has to work with, what with it only being around forty minutes in length, but then I’d at least expect the main characters to be somewhat well defined, which doesn’t happen.
They try to give Minerva a coming-of-age arc where she goes from being a spoiled child that does whatever she wants while ignoring her best friend and bodyguard Blue Morris (remember what I said about unfortunate names?) to actually being a decent human being. The arc falls flat on it’s face though, and it falls about as hard and fast as a broken elevator from the last floor of the Burj Khalifa. The problem is that the show never really spends any time on the development instead opting to have Minerva have an instantaneous change of heart within the last five minutes of the show, after which she just goes back to being a brat anyway and then the story ends.
Basically, after spending around forty minutes watching Minerva prance and “coming of age” the story ends up exactly where it began. And that’s not the only thing that stays the same. The villain gets defeated, but since this is a prequel to the game she can’t really be defeated so she is shown to be just fine mere seconds after seemingly getting blown away by a massive explosion.
You could argue that the show is more about getting together the cast of women warriors that you play as during the game, and you would be right. Except that getting the cast together is as simple as organising a tournament and having them all meet beforehand by coincidence and make friends. I hope you didn’t get excited at me mentioning a tournament because if you want some kick-ass fights and nail-biting suspense you’re going to have a bad time. Not only is the tournament cut short, but the fights that are shown are also nothing more than some laser blasts and maybe a few waves of a sword.
You’d think the show would take a bit of a chance to flex its muscles especially since it does take the time to show some fights, but what you get instead is extremely stiff animation and action scenes that are nothing more than some flashy effects to cover up the lack of any actual movement or choreography. I suppose that’s the way it is in the games, they are JRPGs after all, but does it really have to be this way in the anime as well?
There isn’t really any effort put into the character animation and design either. You’d think that having extremely intrusive and ridiculously skimpy armour that they try to put front and centre in every scene would at least make them try and make the designs look good, right? To their credit, they don’t look as bad as they could look, but that’s hardly a compliment.
In the end Princess Minerva is one of those titles that everyone with even the slightest bit of sense should stay away from. I’d be lying if I said that some of its gags didn’t get a giggle out of me, but some few second long giggles aren’t worth sitting through forty minutes of a mindless and, frankly, soulless anime. Unless your masochistic desires have surfaced or you just have a desire to watch something that’s harmlessly bad, stay away from Princess Minerva.
28: Bikini Warriors OVA
Japanese: ビキニ ウォリアーズ
MAL Score: 5.54
New OVAs slated for release in Fall 2016. The OVAs will include two new characters, Cleric and Kunoichi.
(Source: MAL News)
Seen via English Subtitles
If you have seen the TV-show this is a more ‘bare’ or ‘raw’ take. While the art is more ‘visible’ the plot appears to have drained. Along with the plot the genres died as well.
-plot i mentioned has died because it is very plain in this case. Here it is just a person’s ‘private’ goal. That is all. Then when the goal is within _____ the scene ____. Yes, the underlines are there are purpose to describe the disappointment.
-What was in the tv show feminism comedy is now lewd humor and very limited at that. Comedy is suppose to cause laughter. If it is made apparent what is going on where is the surprise punch line so to speak? when you can’t see something coming and then it arrives that is what causes a rise of emotion. Whether it is fear or laughter.
-clear and more taunting. This is a borderline hentai. Animations is smooth. Emotions are crisp.
Conclusion Remark: if you want something you can screen grab from and to display as you see fit as a poster or something here you go. If you want something more…. look somewhere else.
Like the Special, it features unhidden nipples and quite a lot of them. Especially thanks to the second episode, they probably occupy the majority of frames. That are also two borderline-hentai sex scenes, but they’re extremely short and only present in the first episode.
However, like in the Special, the humor has much lower presence here. For one, it mostly lacks the RPG parody present in the main series. Instead it largely relies on lewd humor (admittedly, not unfitting), mostly in the “Emperor’s New Clothes”-like setup of the second episode.
The Bikini Warriors OVA is a nice little thing, if you want to see the characters in their “uncensored” glory and the Special wasn’t enough. As such, it’s best to watch it after the main series, as an extra, just like said Special. Sadly, while the OVA is amusing enough on its own, the humor of the main series is still sorely missed.
27: Lupin Shanshei
MAL Score: 5.57
Series of 10 shorts parodying the popular classic anime Lupin III.
26: School Days: Magical Heart Kokoro-chan
Japanese: School Days ～マジカルハート☆こころちゃん～
MAL Score: 5.59
Originally an April’s Fool in 2007, this one episode OVA is a spin-off of the School Days game by 0verflow, and shows Kokoro Katsura, the little sister of one of the main characters, from her other side. A mahou shoujo out to save the world, or something like that.
Magical Heart Kokoro-chan was nothing like this. While using the same characters as School days, this OVA is nothing like its parent show. It is infact the story of a team of superheroes sent to fight against an evil super villain hell bent on turning the entire population of the town in to perverted lecherous zombies.
This is one anime that is so bad is is actually good.. If you have watched the original School Days then it is worth watching this as you will be already familiar with the characters and their traits which is what makes this anime worth it.
This thing may seem the mediocre mahou-shojo story. In fact it is, but in parody form, for the everything: mahou-shoujo itself, School Days original plot, deadly seriousness, even the broadcasting issues. Not necessarily you would laugh at it, but the worldly-wise smile will constantly be on your face for sure. It’s great way to take a new look on your favourite title.
And what else is needed?
However, I was met with exactly those expectations. It seemed they aged up Kokoro to make it appropriate for the animators to draw her in sexy clothes and sexy gear and to show off the panty shots. This OVA is very unapologetic about their panty shots and enlarged breasts (especially when you consider Kotonoha’s aversion to sex in the series).
This is an alternate universe where magical girls are real and so are villains. It’s clear who is fulfilling each role. If there’s any plot twists, it’s that Kokoro actually has a double set of secret identities and Makoto Itou is actually a good guy. We finally see Sekai’s mother, even if it’s brief.
The animation is standard but the art is still pretty cute despite the dark themes. There’s nothing really to say much else to say about it. Everything is in place and, because it’s not my humor, it’s not that funny to me. I never liked Makoto or Sekai but it was funny seeing her get some comeuppance, even if it’s not as extreme as it was in the original anime or game.
Clearly, this OVA was aimed towards the fans of the type of sexualized jokes and not someone like me whose only enjoyment was seeing the Nice Boat meme come up randomly.
Would I recommend this OVA to others? Sure, if they “School Days” fans. I wouldn’t really recommend this as a magical series or to magical girl fans, especially if they’re not familiar with “School Days”. At least, Magical Heart’s outfit is really cute. Too bad it’s wasted.

25: Lunatic Night
MAL Score: 5.62
Humankind has almost reached extinction. Only one male remains, with two females and a human-like catgirl. Of course, the labor now is to repopulate Earth, so the male has to do his job. But along with having sex almost every day they have to reclaim lands of another species living on the Earth, so the sex-battles must commence.
Although the story of Lunatic Night is epic, don’t try to follow it. Because it will only make your head spin. No. Just kidding. There is no story. But it is epic, and it will make your head spin.
It starts with a very cliche mundane plot then throws you into “epicness” while flashing you with some ecchi scenes and slaps you across the face with parodies. World Wars, pyramids, lost civilizations, biblical references, floating castles, cat girls, Amazon women, fighting mecha robots with shooting vaginas. Yes. It’s just that type of hentai. Insane, silly, hilarious, and nonsensical. But watch it with your doors locked because it is explicit with in-your-face sexual connotations that you just can’t ignore.
With a mish-mash of slap-stick characters, Lunatic Nights tends to throw the viewers off. At the center is your average Joe protagonist, a blonde haired high school student who reads manga. Through the introduction of his friend (or foe) He is suddenly surrounded by a harem of females: cat girl, traditional Japanese maiden, and a tomboy with wings, all of them with unexpected transformations. They suddenly embark on a journey to either rule or destroy the world. Then you have your antagonist who is ambiguously portrayed as either friend or foe. His face is always hidden behind a smiling mask and his motives, unclear. He has his own harem as well. The two factions battle each other with silliness as different worlds collided and chaos reigns. In additions to the two opposing factions, there are a number of side characters who make brief appearances who are just as crazy and hilarious.
Even with so much hilarity, art and animation is one of its short-comings. The 3 episode OVA was made in the late nineties, so you’ll have to forgives its simplicity. As you can expect, there are not a lot of details that went into the private areas, the animation is not smooth, and there are a lot of abnormalities in the art. So it really doesn’t make it that much greater even if it is uncensored. But that is okay, because it is a comedy first, hentai second.
Character voicing was rather good. Each character was befitting of its voice. The music wasn’t anything memorable. The sounds and FX are dated and sometimes rather odd and off cue, but that just adds to the humor that is Lunatic Nights.
Overall, if your looking for some naughty cheap laughs, then watch Lunatic Nights. It’ll have you going “WTF?!” in a humorous way. I certainly found it hilarious.

23: Majokko Club Yoningumi: A Kuukan kara no Alien X
Japanese: 魔女っ子クラブ4人組 A空間からのエイリアンX
MAL Score: 5.75
Yuu, Persia, Mai and Yumi are together in a science fiction-like adventure. An awful monster assault young and beautiful girls, leaving them transformed into ugly hags: only our four magical girls with their powers can fly to the space and fight for Earth ‘s sake, so Yuu transforms into Creamy Mami, Mai into Magical Emi, Persia into Fairy and little Yumi draws space suits for all of them.
On a more serious note, this is an enjoyable crossover for anyone who knows of Studio Perriot’s earlier works. For something coming out of the 80s, it’s fairly well-made. It’s a shame the main villain is A TENTACLE MONSTER, though. I don’t think they knew what would become of tentacles in the anime and manga world.
It’s only 30 minutes long, the music is intense when needed and I personally found it enjoyable. It was interesting to see those four characters come together in a crossover.
On the other hand… The fighting scenes were lackluster and it lacked of any magical girl transformation scene, other than the one Yuu (worst girl, amirite) gets. Admittedly, most people don’t like transformation scenes but heck, I ain’t watching no mahou shoujo anime for nothing!
22: Tokio Kidou Police
English: Tokio Private Police
MAL Score: 5.90
A strong and eager, but sexually very inhibited girl joins an elite police team in the future Tokyo. There, one of her colleagues, a beautiful and sexually not a little bit inhibited woman awakens her sexuallity. Tokyo Private Police is in a way a mix of mecha-fights and sexual interaction.
For those of you who don’t know what Patlabor is, here is a fuller review.
I will swear in this review because face it, anyone reading a review on this hentai should be an adult.
Just as Patlabor seems to have taken one cue too many from Shirow’s Dominion Tank Police to be considered mere coincidence, Tokio Private Police seems to have taken one cue too many from Patlabor.
How about a dedicated redheaded cop with high mecha affinity and not much of an appetite for anything other than the hardware she pilots?
Though I have not seen much hentai as of now, I am well aware of the trope that hentai is a lustful thing that uses all the laziest and crappiest plot devices in the book (especially rape) to set up sex scenes as quickly and clumsily as possible. This hentai isn’t one of those, it actually makes moderate sense for the most part (not to mention all the main relationships aren’t rapey), instantly putting it several levels above the majority of hentai. However, in the end, it is still a retro hentai and we all know just how shittier retro hentai is.
Many characters in this ova are already in relationships, thus dodging the awkward bullet of needing to justify how they got together in the first place. It does mostly revolve around taking advantage of our heroine’s inexperience and letting her experience some action ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). I have to admit, our heroine’s character development is even a tad bit romantic! Apart from the sex scenes which are mostly vanilla and include hetero, lesbian and gang(rape) pairings, there are some mecha (or more like wheeled quad tank mech) combat scenes. Obviously I enjoyed the latter more. If you get off to retro hentai sex when far superior modern hentai exists, you’re an idiot.
One last note, apparently the jurisdiction of the private police is restricted by law to the point where they cannot stop a gang rape happening right in front of them when off duty. Could have potentially been an interesting dystopian plot theme if the anime was developed further? Well since no more of this hentai was made; its pretty stupid as it currently stands.
Now Patlabor was one of the best looking TV shows of its time, the sheer fluidity of movement and consistency of the technical details in its art is one of the many subtle things that makes the show godtier.
Tokio Private Police has none of that, its art and animation is above average for a hentai; which means it’s still on the low end of 90s Ova visual quality.
Also on the low end of 90s Ova is the soundtrack. Smooth jazz plays during the sex scenes; enough said.
If this anime wasn’t a hentai, that would not have changed my rating for this anime. The characters all follow your 90s police/ military slice of life stereotypes, the humour isn’t that funny and the art design and action scenes are mediocre at best. All of this makes for an extremely meh ova. At the very least, the sex doesn’t detract from the anime but it certainly isn’t good by any means.
In the end, I don’t see any reason you should watch this anime unless you’re obsessed with police animes (like I am). I’m just glad the main character of a hentai doesn’t get raped for once.
21: Anime Tenchou
English: Animation Store Manager
MAL Score: 6.04
This is the Animation Store Manager!!
Anime Tenchou is a CM character for Animate, one of Japan’s biggest retailer of anime, games, and manga. The character series was created by Shimamoto Kazuhiko for publicity purposes. Later adapted into a manga, a weekly radio drama and this OVA animated by GAINAX and directed by Anno Hideaki.
Anizawa Meito is the blazing store manager. He is a fireball who loves animation merchandise at heart. He takes over the dying wish of the former store manager, though still alive, who was attacked by the rival store and becomes a “store manager” of newly opened animation goods specialty store, Animate. The scarlet, “store manager visor” is his trademark.
Well basically the main plot involves Anizawa Meito (main) taking over his managers last wish (though actually alive) to take over his Animate store. From here we see him, along with the other workers shouting promotional advertisements for their story, and fighting their rival company by way of hand to hand combat. Their antics were quite action packed and entertaining, there definitely is a lot going on during it. (which might give some a headache) You might start to get the feeling that your watching some sort of Dragonball Z commercial. Which is what this OVA basically is…….a commercial! Its fun and amusing, though very very short, but you do get a nice farewell bow from the real life Animate store workers, which was kind of nice.
Very good considering its age, the on screen anime characters are blended in nicely with real life backgrounds from the shop and even Tokyo. All doing either crazy style martial arts, or over the top promotions. Their drawn in good detail, color and fluidity, though do show their age by today’s standards, and the animated backgrounds can be pretty plain, and just not up to standards with the well detailed characters.
After Anizawa thinks his manager is dead, he quickly puts on his uniform style apron, and is joined in conjunction with this pretty catchy 80’s style male sung j-pop theme. It plays through out the OVA in a nice montage. Though some may feel it to be too dated, it really compliments the on screen action antics well. The character voices they have their are well done, and range from deep male style voices, to the loud voices with the female co-worker of his. Though overall the voice overs are pretty sparse. Most of the time you’ll just be hearing the announcer.
Well you pretty much only get to see Anizawa for the most part, but he is joined with brief appearances by his co-workers jumping around on screen. I really liked their design and personalities. They come off more as a mix of exaggerated comical yet well proportioned characters, so it depends on your taste.
Bottom Line: 7/10
Overall its a pretty amusing run through, plus its short so there really is no reason to feel like you wasted your time by checking it out. Then again it is a commercial, and I know most of us don’t like those! Hahahaha!
Do they need to be informative and relevant facts clearly and concisely? Do they need to be original and distinguish themselves from their competitors? Do they need to be attractive and capture the audience’s attention?
No, No and No!
All a good advertisement needs is spirit!
How do you expect a man to sign up for a two year after sales warranty on his new dish washer if you can’t even ignite a fire in their belly with a sales pitch that even a Godfather wouldn’t be able to refuse? You can’t. You can’t even get him in the store, because while you decided to put out on some square in a suit, the competition splashed out on a fifty foot tall replica of the latest model with working water cannons! Purchase incentives? Don’t make me laugh; people want action, excitement…. and most of all, they want every statement to end with an exclamation mark!
Anime Tenchou is just such an advertisement, and it doesn’t simply ask you to pay them a visit; it knocks you to the floor and drags you inside by the ears. You like anime, manga, videogames and their related merchandise ventures? Great. You don’t? Well pansy, it’s time for you to grow some balls and start acting like a real man! No, don’t sign up for that gym membership; start watching anime! Don’t like it? What are you, a girl?
Oh, you are a girl? Well don’t you worry little lady; we’ve got all the manly men you crave, and there all right here… No, not walking around the store, they’re in the Yaoi manga section on the fifth floor. That’s right, a whole floor chock o’ block with cock on cock, where both the manliest and the most effeminate of drawn men get it on all day, every day. It’s what every Yaoi fangirl dreams of; a place where no one can hear them scream. Or squeal, for that matter.
(Customer Notice: Animate is not responsible for any loss of hearing that may result from travelling in or around the 5th floor.)
What the hell you waiting for? Why haven’t you watched Anime Tenchou yet? Are you telling me this literal reflection of the premise hasn’t given you an unquenchable thirst for GAR? You want me to tell you about the presentation?
The sound of Anime Tenchou is like that of a beast as it goes in for the kill; the sound of a battleship being taken down by a fighter jet; the sound of a man stubbing his toe against the leg of a table. In fact, it’s a sound so deeply masculine you can’t evoke with nancy-boy literary techniques. Such powerful emotion can be expressed through direct quotation alone:
And if that doesn’t sound awesome to you, then it’s because you scream like a three year old girl.
Still not satisfied? Man, you’re one tough customer. But don’t you change the channel just yet, because I’ve saved the best for last; Anime Tenchou is so beautiful that it’ll bring a tear to your eye -mostly because you’re just a little wuss, but also because it’s nice to look at.
In fact, it’s so beautiful that it makes the Sistine Chapel look like a doodle. So beautiful that you’d think God himself was responsible for it; and he was. Well, not God exactly but definitely the next best thing; Hideaki Anno, a man already known for biblical productions like ‘Neon Genesis Evangelion’ and ‘Resurrection: Cutey Honey’
The character designs are so incredibly manly that the animating staff had to take anabolic steroids for three months before commencing work on Anime Tenchou, but it was worth it. The animation is smooth as greased Teflon and awesome. And lust look at those backgrounds, look how detailed they are, it’s almost like real life!… Know why? Because it is real life, dumbass! Know why they used the real world for backgrounds? Because otherwise, you wouldn’t believe a place as awesome as this could really exist!
As unbelievably manly as the artwork is, it does have a few problems. In particular the character designs, which are nicely drawn but are riddled with glaringly obvious proportional errors. Even the lead character, who’s head is visibly much, much larger than his testicles. Sure, getting the proportions exactly right would have been impossible, but come on Gainax, you can do better than that! But perhaps we shouldn’t be too hard on the staff of Gainax. After all, their hands were probably jittery from all the steroids.
And there you have it: that’s Anime Tenchou. Watch it, if you think you’ve got the plums for it. This review has attempted to capture the sensation of this commercial, but it’s little more than an essence- a little taster of what’s to come.
It’s difficult to describe something like Anime Tenchou with words. It’s much easier to do it with punctuation:
Watch it -if you think you’re man enough.
The animation wasn’t terrible, but the transitions from scene to scene were a little abrupt, even for a short. The sound quality wasn’t great (at least where I saw it.)
This isn’t the worst advertisement around, but I can’t really recommend it since it doesn’t do much except tell you that the store Animate exists. Since I’ve already done that in this review, the advertisement has even less to offer. Oops.
20: Cream Lemon
MAL Score: 6.20
A collection of short stories, ranging from soap opera (the Ami series) to fantasy (Rall series) to horror (Cream Lemon Dark) to parody (Pop Chaser). It does deal with a lot of heavy perversions ranging from S&M, male rape (by a bunch of females, that is), bondage, torture, yuri (lesbian love) and incest.
now: more intrinsic analysis : i’d give 9 to the story but idk i don’t want to. the story was really what gave me the will to stay and see the rest on that summer night on the hub. if it was not for the quality of the writing i wouldn’t be here today writing this review, so this already says a lot about how much good it really is.
the art aswell is very good. like the design of t-t.
the sound is sh*t, sounds like it was recorded from a phone, with a phone, although this might be because i watched it on a “non-official” site, i guess.
i like the characters. i know that red head girl, she’s very pretty. it is not 8-9 because she looks like a minor and i’m not even a pædo bro. (fr)
enjoyment i didn’t know what it meant before, but i researched and what it means is like “like”. so i liked it a lot like i said before!
overall i give 7 because i had a good time and didn’t cry for 1 week at the end of the ponheta because of this :^)
thank for reading my review on anim

obrigado por ler reviu minha no anime
First of all I’d like to get this out of the way; THIS IS PORN. The characters and plot are all there as a set up to sex. This being said, if I only watched it for porn why would I choose to watch Cream Lemon as opposed to millions of videos on numerous websites of an unsavory nature? The reason is that this is much more than porn. With unique and strangely appealing storylines, fantastic visuals, and good audio, Cream Lemon has become a classic of all anime, not just of the hentai genre.
That being said, during the sexually explicit scenes, some of the fetishes (especially the bondage in the Escalation series), can be a bit overwhelming and detract severely from anything that makes this show anything but pornography.
I have only seen the first 16 episodes however, because these are the only ones available (that I could find) with English subtitles. Also this series may prove difficult to obtain and I was only able to find it through torrents.
Cream Lemon is an episodic show with new characters and different settings in each episode with the exception of a few multi-episode series. The stories surrounding each episode are extremely varied ranging from science fiction (Star Trap and Pop Chaser) to World War II era Japan (Black Cat Mansion) to pure fantasy (the Rall series) although most if not all of the other episodes feature some aspects of school in them.
The animation in Cream Lemon is superbly done and even looks good today despite being created in the 80’s. The motion of characters is generally fluid although there are many sex scenes which do not always hold up to this standard. I would like to draw specific attention to the animation in “Black Cat Mansion” (episode 11) which was simply spectacular and brought out the story in very vivid detail. The only episode which was particularly unappealing in terms of design was the first episode of the two-part Mako series in which faces were just plain ugly or expressions were animated rather lazily.
In general the music was enjoyable and featured many piano pieces (especially in the escalation series) but also had some guitar stuff and, of course, had porno music going on during sex scenes.
I can’t really say much about the characters being exciting or anything for the most part as their primary function was to lead to the sexual encounters between themselves and others. Almost all of the characters were pretty one dimensional. Some characters are enjoyable due to their personalities or due to the inherent humor of the episodes.
What I enjoyed most about Cream Lemon and watching it episodically were the differences between episodes. Some could be very funny and a few made me LOL a few times (Pop Chaser, Star Trap and Narisu Scramble). In some of the episodes the plots were so surreal in fact that you could even laugh at the premises of them even if the episodes themselves were not explicitly humorous.
Others had decidedly good plots despite being only to facilitate sex. An example of this is the Ami series which, if there were no sexually explicit scenes, easily comes off as simply a drama, albeit possessing a plot which involves an incestuous relationship. Another is the Rall series which focuses more on action scenes (scenes which did NOT involve sex) and in my opinion had less focus on explicit sex even though there were several scenes in which it did surface. This is about a village being attacked by a great evil (who wants to violate the women obviously) and a mythic heroine who must save them.
Overall this series is worth watching once and I feel that at least one or two episodes would be appealing to the average male (I doubt females would have any interest whatsoever). Thank you for reading 🙂
Ever since things have become increasingly dominated by the streaming format, the industry has lost an experimental approach for the genre but this could also very well be due to how the budget for hentai nowadays has it’s own fixed costs for the purpose of pleasing the consumers that are only interested in that one thing from it.
Although most of the stories in Cream Lemon are absolutely abhorrent, it is certainly worth noting that a multitude of genres are coming together and being integrated here to have us rethink about some old cliches. It seems that what “Cream Lemon” wants to ultimately accomplish is something of a mix and mash; a hentai to be half-satirical half-raunchy; and meanwhile perhaps have us think about what a hentai genre could do as oppose to what it’s normally limited in doing in trying to only please male and female audiences with sex and sex only.
I don’t recommend watching the entire series but, I do recommend giving at least, a few episodes a try just to see what the absurdness is really all about. It doesn’t have an overarching story either so, you can basically start anywhere you’d prefer. I’d also advise doing some research on what some critics have said to be the strongest episodes. Otherwise, you will be in for a painful experience not enjoying it at all as it is pretty inconsistent and over the top. For me, I like high fantasy so, I stuck with those instead and officially stopped there.

18: Haiyoru! Nyaruani
English: Haiyoru! Nyaruani
MAL Score: 6.29
Animated Flash shorts based on the light novel series “Haiyore! Nyaruko-san.” In these shorts, Nyarlko, an anthropomorphized female version of Nyarlathotep from the Cthulhu Mythos, is constantly being told off by Mahiro, a normal human boy, for all the crazy or stupid things she does.
In one of the shorts, Nyarlko is drawing a cover design for a body pillow. It turns out that the pillow’s subject is a half-dressed Mahiro in what appears to be a hot and heavy scene with Nyarlko. Naturally, Mahiro proceeds to stab Nyarlko in the hand with a fork and threatens to kill her if she releases the pillow design.
Other shorts revolve around various gags and occasionally feature Cthuko, an anthropomorphized female version of Cthugha, who’s madly in love with Nyarlko.
So, that is basically the story and the character section rolled into one. I won’t tell you what I think of what I just wrote, because due to whether or not you are a Cthulhu mythos fan or not this could sound like the worst/best thing ever written by mankind.
The next thing to talk about is the art, which is as far as anime art goes is quite bland and ugly, and the animation is rather low quality. However, I can be a bit more forgiving here due to the fact this was made with Flash, a program in which I can barely get a stick figure to move it’s legs.
The sound was decent. The few VAs there were had done somewhat well known characters (Yuno from Hidamari Sketch, Harumi from SZS) and the ending theme after each and every segment was nice, whilst somewhat annoying if you are watching the whole thing from back to front.
I enjoyed myself quite a bit, in no short thanks due to the constant stream of Lovecraftian/Anime and Manga references they popped in at opportune spots. And whilst I realize this was nothing but an advertisement for a novel I will never see translated in my life time (and screw learning Japanese, Spanish is hard enough) I can say that it certainly amused me for its short run time.
All in all, I recommend this series if you are a Lovecraft fan. Partly because you may find the show’s humour enjoyable, and partly because I might derive morbid entertainment from your screams of terror as you list down everything that this anime just raped about your beloved Mythos. Non-Lovecraft readers might enjoy it as well, just don’t expect to know what the hell is going on half the time. I rate it 7 grave rolls out of 10.
As stated before, this series was made with the intention of promoting the light novel series that it’s based off of. As you can imagine, this doesn’t leave it very much room to develop, especially with the straining 4 minute length per episode. However, there’s enough spontaneity and wackiness to make it a worthwhile, humorous, if unmemorable series to watch.
The animation obviously won’t be winning any accolades, due to being entirely done in Flash. While it isn’t bad, it’s very minimalistic, and doesn’t allow for much action to take place. The music and voice work are both satisfactory, if not excellent. From the ominous orchestra in the introduction reminiscent of Dr. Horrible to the emotion-deprived wisp of Cthuko’s voice to the upbeat ending, the auditory aspect is easily the high point of the series.
In short, worth checking out, but don’t get your hopes up. It may not be amazing, but it did its job well in promoting the story of these books, and I hope that they may get a translation at a later date.
It’s split pretty evenly down the line whether fans of the Cthulhu Mythos will find anything to love here, and I’ll say that it’s an interesting enough take on it to warrant a glance.
17: Mahou Shoujo Pretty Sammy
English: Magical Girl Pretty Sammy
MAL Score: 6.38
Sasami’s always been kind of neat… but now she’s been imbibed with a healthy dose of magic (which she plans to use to right the things wrong with the Earth, and, of course, help keep her brother Tenchi out of trouble). Naturally, there’s going to be trouble: this time, it’s the mysterious Pixy Misa… and Ryoko going at it against Ayeka (as usual) isn’t making things any easier for her!
Pretty Sammy… In a few words: This is one hell of a weird anime to branch off of the original Tenchi Muyo anime o_O
Story: Is not that good yet it’s not that bad. We meet along with 4th grader Sasami who is just your regular elementary school student who randomly gets powers because a certain goddess was either bored or she needed help for one thing or another (OMG… I can’t believe I forgot already x.x). Oh well. This is mostly a story about the trials that Pretty Sammy has to go through to keep the world safe from the villians. Nothing much to that.
Art: Is pretty good. If you’re used to the usual art of the Tenchi Muyo universe, then this is pretty much good. Everyone and everything look just as they should.
Sound: They have most of the music from the OVA series which is a plus for me (being the avid Tenchi fan that I am).
Character: OMG…. You have no clue as to how many times I was like "EW!! 4th GRADER… STOP THAT!" XD! It wasn’t like… dirty in a sense… It was just a few of the things that the villains and everyone around that thing where saying to Sammy where like, "COME ON!" XD! But a whole bunch of those things were pretty hilariously stupid.
Enjoyment: As said above: this series is hilariously stupid. I enjoyed it a lot (although, it scared the crap out of my cousin and it has forever tainted the way she sees Sasami ^^; ). The old gang is still here… Although it’s kinda weird seeing how Mihoshi and Kiyone may have switched places (mind-wise) and how Ayeka and Sasami’s mom have a tendency to be crying one minute and laughing their heads off in a psychotic episode thanks to that crying O_o;
Overall, this series wasn’t either bad nor good. It was just something that I had been DYING to watch after I had completed watching the OVA and Universe (+movies). It was nice to hear everyone’s voices again and to watch something of the series I love so much (that was new to me) after so many years.
Sounds random, but if done right it works really well.
Sadly the first film is not done right.
Films 2 and 3 are actually pretty good, though the third one suffers from the same problems as the first.
The biggest issue I have is that too much time is spent on Ryoko and Ayeka chasing Tenchi, which doesn’t add anything to the plot. On the contrary, it draws attention from it and makes it seem unfocused and all over the place. That probably also alienates viewers not familiar with the main series (Tenchi Muyou!).
Since the first film has a similar plot to the 1996 TV show “Magical Project S” (which does it right), I recommend watching the series instead.
The other two films on the other hand are a must watch. Film 2 even starts off with a recap, making watching the first one unnecessary.
In the first episode, there are two men who’s voices are so comically horrendous it circles back to being enjoyable. Misao’s voice actress seems to have recorded her lines in a separate room from the mic, it’s so quiet. Sasami’s lines are much louder, which makes the scenes where they talk together almost unbearable.
The art is pretty good, if a little stiff at times, though this is an older show so it makes sense. There aren’t any moments where its particularly egregious to look at, though there aren’t any moments where it looks stunning.
The characters can be a little grating after a while, especially ryoko and ayeka
I enjoyed the show, though I definitely don’t think I would recommend it to anyone.
16: Iyashite Agerun Saiyuuki
English: Karma Saiyuki
Japanese: 癒してあげルン 西遊記
MAL Score: 6.43
A hentai version of the famous Journey to the West where Goku & co. are big breasted babes.
In any case, when you view animes, it is inevitable that you will come across so crazy, goofy, and bizarre that it is apparent that it is supposed to be this way. Iyashite Agerun Saiyuuki is a perfect example of a crazy Hentai title.
At first we get a brief explanation. This is essentially all of the story we really get, learning that your three leading ladies are repairers of some sort, and their methods are bizarre enough that a perverted man-child has them in the palm of his hand, since he knows how they perform repairs.
The entirety of the episode is based on travelling to a city, and then all four characters going to enjoy a brothel.
Our different characters cover some different archetypes, but that becomes all-to-obvious. The characters are simple, but the female leads at least aren’t annoying, which is more than can be said for the lead male, but he is actually supposed to be that way.
The art is nothing special, and the sounds are fine. What really draws everything forward is the utter zaniness of it all, and how absolutely crazy everything gets. It would be difficult to expound on this without giving out spoilers, but rest assured, it is completely insane, and the creators absolutely knew this, and intended it to be this way.
Overall, I find this Hentai to be one that should not be based entirely on the standards of other Hentai titles, simply becuase this one doesn’t even try to be serious at all. It is worth a viewing, but I won’t promise you that it will be excellent. If you find the ‘throw-all-pretense-of-seriousness-out-the-window’ style to be your thing, I can wholeheartedly recommend this to you. If not, you may or may not enjoy it.
*Very Minor Spoiler – there is Futanari in this anime. If you are not interested in the Futanari genre, you may not really watch it.*
seen via english subtitles
Ever walk to the movie and left saying i did not get my money’s worth. here, you wont feel that way.
-art is crisp and clear. I do tend to mention that but here it makes more of a difference. Here you have a constant mash up(group) of a lot of females. All of which are beautiful in their own way.
-symbolism: How many people buy and buy? Or, how many people press on at a moment’s thought. Those actions we take on a daily basis are good for us but not for others. Confused? let me explain. If you buy Christmas gifts for your beloved or friends you are buying it for them not you. Therefore, you will spend what ever the going rate is. For chances are high the stuff they would want are things you don’t use or not knowledgeable about. Hence, you can easily be manipulated with price jack ups. Whether it is jewelry or a t-shirt. You buy since it is there for let’s say 50 dollars and wrap the gift. What most don’t know is the deceitful act in that. That gift as nice as it is easily sells for half that price but since you bought it that high the cost will not come down until after Christmas is over. Any-who, my point is this story is good at explaining and elaborating on repercussions through the treatment the characters provide on animals, women, and machines.
-plot: is a riot. Sure the plot makes sense but not often do you get a remix on a remix.
-message: i am sure there were other messages but plot’s message on justice failed. You have abuse to left and right. Some may seem kind but it is still abuse. There ending action at resolving it is to repair. That is right. You are hurt and mangled try not to be and press forwards. No real punishment was inflicted towards the wrong actions people took. Is the viewer supposed to lear to shrug off evil?
15: Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch – Nunnally in Wonderland
English: Code Geass: Nunnally in Wonderland
Japanese: コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュ ナナリーinワンダーランド
MAL Score: 6.45
On a bright, peaceful day, siblings Nunnally and Lelouch Lamperouge take a moment to relax under a tree. When Nunnally asks him to tell her a story, Lelouch, who is unflinchingly resolute in doing his utmost for his sister, makes unique use of his Geass ability, breaking barriers to tell the most entertaining story he can.
Awakening alone under the tree, the previously blind Nunnally finds that she can see again and immediately spots a strange rabbit that resembles Anya Alstreim, the Knight of Six. The sight of this rabbit sends Nunnally falling down a hole, leading her to a colorful wonderland. Narrated by Lelouch himself, Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch – Nunnally in Wonderland follows the lost Nunnally as she searches for a way back home, meeting a slew of colorful, familiar characters along the way.
The comedy is well thought out and very funny. With so much references to the plot, fans of Code Geass are rewarded with not only comedy. By using nearly all the major characters, in roles that fit their personalities, one can tell the writers care for their fans. The very last scene is heartwarming and funny, ending the special in a fulfilling manner.
If this ain’t milk then I ain’t tired. And I haven’t slept in 36 hours.
Every Code Geass fan will be disappointed, sorry to tell this. I still can’t believe how big of a letdown this was. I would have been completely happy with mindless comedy, C.C. eating pizza and unlimited fanservice, but this is just wrong. This is disgrace towards Code Geass and offends the fans, you shouldn’t waste your time with it.
Now, onto the review.
The main premise of the special is that Lelouch tries to tell an interesting story to Nunnally, like he used to when he was younger. He envisions his sister in his own version of Wonderland, with most of the other characters from the original series make brief appearances. Crazy things ensue, and many people will find this method of storytelling off-putting. After all, Nunnally in Wonderland is essentially Lelouch’s (rather siscon) twisted fantasy. Everything that happens in his Wonderland parallels the “real world” of Code Geass in some way, and this special cleverly lampoons many elements of the series. Although many people found this to be insipid and devoid of the intelligence that was in the main series, I found the gags to be quite entertaining. It definitely lacks the drama and coherent plot lines of the original though, so if that’s what you’re looking for then you are sure to be disappointed.
This special was clearly low-budget, as the artwork was mediocre at best and the animation was virtually non-existent. As this was meant to be more of a picture drama than an actual anime episode, the lack of art quality isn’t much I can complain about. CLAMP’s noodle-arm character design is still there, and overall the art was pretty consistent–as in a consistent level of bad.
From what I know, all of the original voice actors from the series with roles in this special were able to reprise their respective roles. Thus, I have no complaints in the voice acting department. Lelouch sounds as he always does, and Norio Wakamoto, a fan favorite, really had a chance to ham it up in this. The king’s booming, regal voice is always entertaining to hear, and his silly scenes in this special were no different. Much of the music from the original series was used here as well, though much of it featured that light-hearted school setting/student council tune. Overall, the sound was fine, though nothing special, unless you were a big fan of the original OST. If you’re also a big fan of any of these seiyuu, then at least check this out for their roles.
Surprisingly, despite all the crazy gags and antics in this special, the characters actually stayed…well…in-character. Though the situations were changed, Lelouch was still Lelouch, Suzaku was still Suzaku, etc. If you liked their original characterizations, then you should not be too disappointed by how they are portrayed in this. Though, if you’re looking for any character development or major backstories, you won’t find it here. In this special, the purpose of the characters was to create humorous situations, and in that it succeeded reasonably well.
Overall, I personally enjoyed Nunnally in Wonderland. It might turn some viewers off because it lacks the drama, intelligence, and seriousness of the main series, but as a cheeky, ironic little piece of comedy that pokes fun at its parent series, it really is quite enjoyable to watch. I would recommend this to anyone who wouldn’t mind a sillier, stranger side-story from Code Geass.
14: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kira
MAL Score: 6.54
With things such as story out of the way, Higurashi cranks up the fanservice with Kira, a new OVA series to commemorate the series’ 10th anniversary, featuring nail-biting situations such as Rika and Satoko becoming magical girls to battle evil magic crime syndicates with the help of their trusty squad of cheerleaders, among other things.
The excitement may be too much to handle. Do you dare step inside the… “different” world of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kira?
First of all, anyone that watches Higurashi for the gore will not particularly like this OVA. But then again, Higurashi is in no way about the gore; it’s about the characters and what they go through. And this fact is exactly why I am giving this an 8/10. Over the course of the series, we have all seen just how much suffering the characters have gone through. Don’t you think they need a reprieve? Do you really think they deserve to go through such hell and not live happy lives afterwards?
Next, I’ve noticed that many of the hateful reviews of Kira are by people who have only seen the first episode. The first episode is pretty much the only episode with immense amounts of fanservice(other episodes only have minor fanservice in the fact that Shion’s breasts occasionally Gainax), and that is the entire point of the episode. If you don’t like fanservice, then simply skip episode 1. Episode 2 is a parody of the magical girl genre, and fulfills its job well.
In my opinion, where this OVA really shines is in the third and fourth episodes. The third episode is a comedic side-story about Mion, Shion, and Rena all vying for Keiichi’s love, and it manages to have that signature Higurashi comedy that we all know and love. I won’t spoil the ending of the episode, but it elicited more than a few chuckles from me. Episode 4, unlike the other three, is a relatively serious one-shot mainly about Hanyuu and Rika. This episode is considered canon to the series and is definitely worth a watch, even if you do not watch the rest of Kira. The ending even manages to nearly make my eyes water, and I am not one who cries easily.
In short, this OVA is nowhere near as bad as people make it out to be(as long as you are a fan of Higurashi for the right reasons(such reasons being things such as the characters, the story, the comedy, the message it gives off, etc.)). I would highly suggest giving it a try, and even if you end up disliking the first episodes, go ahead and finishing it. You will not regret it, trust me.
First, let it be noted that there is no gore what so ever in the OVA; something that Higurashi is infamous for. However, if you were only watching Higurashi for its gore, then you were watching it for the wrong reasons, because it’s not a show about mindless blood and gore. Higurashi is and has always been about the journey of the characters,the struggles they have had to go through, and their friendship. People who understand that will enjoy SOME of this OVA, but certainly nobody will enjoy all of it.
The majority of the hate that this OVA receives comes from people who saw the first episode and then simply refused to continue, and understandably so. Episode 1 of Higurashi Kira is complete and utter garbage that NOBODY should ever have to sit through. They turn the awesome characters of the Higurashi series into mindless vessels for SHAMELESS fan-service that serves no purpose to the true plot, has no side-plot of its own, and is just physically painful for a Higurashi fans to watch. Whatever you do, DON’T watch episode 1.
Episode 2 is better then episode 1, but that’s not saying much. It’s a goofy, over the top, and downright silly parody of the magical girl genre with the Higurashi characters. If you really liked some of the more light-hearted moments of the series and wouldn’t mind seeing another full episode dedicated to the writers and animators dicking around, then I suppose this one could be worth your time. It’s still not what anybody wanted or expected out of a Higurashi OVA though.
Episode 3 is where the OVA starts to redeem itself, with a very solid episode about the romantic/sexual tension in the club that has been present throughout the series, mostly between Mion and Keiichi, but Rena and Shion are involved as well. While I really do not like what they did with Shion in this episode, it is still worth watching as it’s a nice change of pace to see the club members experience normal problems for once, and provides a bit of closure as far as the romantic feelings of the club members are concerned.
Episode 4 is the true saving grace of the OVA and is definitely worth watching if you are a Higurashi fan. It’s a heart-warming story about Rika and Hanyuu and really is just a delight to watch; that’s all there is to say.
Overall, Higurashi Kira is worth watching for episodes 3 and 4 alone, as true fans of the series will take great pleasure in watching them. Maybe I could recommend episode 2, but holy mother god, words can not describe how horrible episode 1 is. DON’T watch it, but if you do anyway, don’t let it turn you off to the rest of the OVA.
13: Nurse Witch Komugi-chan Magikarte
MAL Score: 6.62
Ungrar, the King of Viruses, has escaped from his prison cell in Vaccine World. Maya, the Goddess of Vaccine World sends Mugimaru down to Earth to find a human to accept the powers of Vaccine World and become the Magical Nurse. He finds the best (and the only willing) person for the job when he meets Komugi Nakahara. Komugi is a playful, lazy, and easily distracted (typical) teenager whose dream is to become a cosplay idol. Balancing her career with the Kiri-Pro Promotion Company and her new job battling Ungrar’s loyal henchman, the Magical Maid Koyori, Komugi delights audiences in this parody anime series.
Nurse Witch Komugi is a parody-laden romp laced with sight gags, slapstick and sheer randomness. And like Excel Saga it works pretty well. References to other anime are frequent and often hilarious, and Komugi makes an over-excitable but likeable lead character. The series is pretty much made up of stand-alone stories, with Komugi having to face a different problem in each episode, which usually start with her doing a job for her modelling agency before everything goes wrong and she has to change into Nurse Witch Komugi. It may be a bit formulaic if it was done over a long series but over the six episodes, it stays entertaining without becoming too predictable.
It’s hard to analyze the story of Nurse Witch Komugi when there is no story to speak of. Boob jokes and fan service pepper this show like Naruto headbands at Anime Expo.
This is a show that’s neither plot-driven nor character-driven, but exists only as eye candy and comedy.
The artwork is higher end quality, but not original. Even Mugimaru, the obligatory cute animal mascot, looks like a reject from the Di Gi Charat cast. The real work that goes into the visuals is in rendering the cosplay outfits with detail, and cosplay is inherently not original, so thats kind of the point.
On the bright side the artwork is the crisp, high-contrast color scheme, despite being a touch on the simple and kiddy end of the spectrum (think again back to di gi charat). The animation is decent on the number of frames vs motion, it moves smooth enough to give a flowing feeling and it actually pulls off the exaggerated, comedic action quite well, unlike some anime where actions are stiff and walking is like watching a sticky pad flip art.
Overall, this show is worth watching if you enjoy things like popotan, puni puni poemi, excel saga, and sailor victory, but if you took a look at the dvd cover art and had any expectation of an anime with any depth, you entirely missed the point here.
The main character, Komugi, is SO freaking adorable. Her character design is so cute.
As previously mentioned I feel like this show is really driven more by the characters themselves than the plot. But if you like shows that have a strong plot then maybe give this one a miss.
The only complaint that I personally have about the show is that there’s a bit of fanservice. I found myself hitting the fast-forward button once or twice in each episode due to those scenes.
The story starts out talking about a rather odd place called Vaccine World where a virus has broken out of prison and went to earth. Because of this, the Goddess of Vaccine World sent this little talking… squirrel-puffball-annoying sidekick-thing… to go find a human to use the magic baton to defeat the virus. He finds Komugi who takes the job only because she wanted to cosplay as a nurse witch. Yep, its one of those shows… the shows where its all fun and games to the person trying to save the earth. I wish he would of at least looked around a bit more or at least thought twice about giving the baton/wand to the first girl he saw. At least someone who gives a crap what the hell the magic was actually supposed to be used for! She, of course, is in love with Kyosuke Date like in SoulTaker. Unlike SoulTaker though, he has the personality of a wet noodle. I have a feeling that this is what Komugi wanted him to be. In fact, I would consider this to be exactly what was going on in Komugi’s empty head all threw Soultaker.
Anyway, then we have Runa who in SoulTaker was the sister of Kyosuke but in this world is nothing more then a childhood actor who does anything for money. There’s Asuka who is a movie actress here but is the love interest sort of in SoulTaker. There’s Shiro who is her manager Yui… both really doesn’t have much of a personality on there own.
I guess the show isn’t all bad, its better then Puni Puni Poemii by a long shot. The artwork is better and the story is a bit more consistent then Puni. If it has fan service, then it has fan service… if it wants to play on parodies, then they do it. They know exactly what they want to be and don’t try to be anything more.
The animation is actually quite good, though sometimes not consistent throughout. I was surprised that Kyoto actually had in doing the artwork and it shows with its rather bright and detailed artwork in no matter what part. The lines are crisp and the colors fill the whole area. Characters don’t normally lose their proportions unless its to push the comedic affect. The characters do look like they were pulled straight from SoulTaker (however, their personalities are actually destroyed) to the point that it’s easy to see who was who.
The English voices are consistent with SoulTaker and so must of it will be said in my review on that series but her’s the low down on this, I CAN’T STAND KOMUGI’S VOICE! She’s a whinny, immature, shell of a girl who is pretty much played off as just the normal everyday high school girl with a crush and a secret. Of course, in order to combat her voice, they have little puffball there a 12-cigarette pack a day voice with a high pitch whine. This we have to hear everytime he talks with Komugi with almost all his sentences ending in ‘Komugi’… ‘We got to save the world, Komugi. Your our only hope, Komugi’… Um… Ya… I like Kyosuke’s voice yet it doesn’t work for the personality they did for him. The opening music is actually quite catchy, and a rather cute piece. Some of the other songs like when Kyosuke is supposed t be singing is actually some pretty nice stuff. I have to say that most of the soundtrack is created rather well and has a nice tone to it, at least when there are vocals. On the flip side, when there is only background music, it doesn’t stand out much and just gets lost or unnoticeable.
In the end, its bad, but not as bad as some others I watched. It’s nothing I can’t deal with having to watch.
12: Nurse Witch Komugi-chan Magikarte Z
MAL Score: 6.65
Sequel to the first series.
11: Dragon Half
MAL Score: 6.85
Mink is no ordinary teenage girl, being half-human and half-dragon. Her father had fallen in love with a red dragon he intended to kill, and instead of slaying the dragon, he married her. Their union gave birth to Mink, who inherited horns, a tail, retractable wings, and incredible strength—characteristics which signify her dragon half nature.
Mink spends her days accompanied by her friend Pia, a dwarf girl with overprotective parents, and her best friend Lufa, an elf with great healing powers but impressively bad magic. The three find themselves mooning over the dreamy and charming dragonslayer, Dick Saucer. But in a sudden, absurd turn of events, Mink gets closer than ever to the object of her fantasies, only to realize that her love may never be reciprocated because of her dragon heritage.
Thus, the trio sets out on a quest to find a potion that will make Mink fully human. They may unwittingly make enemies, but they are sure to have one heck of a good time.
The plot is incredibly simple, but it’s all the motivation a comedy needs. Something as easy as a half dragon who wants to win the affections of a super pop star who slays her kind in his off time by becoming human is just absurd enough to rank very high on a comedy scale. Getting into a comedic show for a plot is asking for trouble, and you might rob yourself of fun. So, it’s about as easy as The Little Mermaid-er, Dragon, as Mink and her friends make a complete mockery of the adventure genre. It deserves it after giving me Those Who Hunt Elves.
Character designs are really cute and vibrant, with virtually every cast member shifting between vaguely serious mode to wacky chibi in a matter of frames. The show spends most of the time in super-deformed mode. It’s hammered down your throat, but this was back when chibi characters using physical comedy was still pretty damn funny and fresh to me before becoming a fairly predictable and stale novelty that it is today. The animation is mildly dated, but still looks pretty great with Production I.G, as the visual gags and dialouge are perfectly timed, making the best out of SD characters and a silly script. I loved them all, from Mink’s completely perverted father, to Vina and her father, including his assistant. As well as Damaramu, who was Kamina from Gurren Lagaan for his time, only 5000 times funnier and more enjoyable to me.
The English dub is one of my favorites, including some of ADVs best best talents from the mid 90’s like Marcy Rae as Mink’s mother, the fantastic Brett Weaver doing what he does best; voicing a loud-mouth buffoon as Damaramu, and Jessica Calvello (A woman who needs more work) as Mink. Probably the only English dubbed animes I’ve found this funny were GTO and Azumanga Daioh. The ending theme is very, very catchy as well, I believe it’s singing about breakfast. God, I dig it so much.
IN CLOSING: This is a rare treasure. It’s from a different era of satire, so it may not be everyone’s cup of tea for younger veiwers. Probably the biggest drawback against it being a satisfying experience is that the manga continues the story, so you might feel a little gipped when the OVA just abruptly ends. Even above and beyond that, it’s almost comedy perfection that does little wrong and is probably only hurt by the passage of time and the fan’s palette for what defines a farce. It’s earned a permanent, golden plaque on my shelf as one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen come out of Japan.
P.S. Sorry for sounding like an old man again in my reviews.
OVERALL SCORE: 9 out of 10
PROS: Fantastic retro satire, Dungeon & Dragons-inspired parody, a pioneer of the chibi-SD humor, great ADV English dub,
CONS: Lack of continuation might dampen experience, out of date style of comedy might not sit well with younger audiences
This is an anime of the dreaded “comedy” genre. I’m not a fan of the comedy found in anime in general, and “Dragon Half” represents the worst of this kind of comedy, containing just about every anime comedy cliche under the sun. Over the top? Check. Nonsensical? Yep. Super deformity? Hell yes. The whole thing is a big joke, and not a very funny one at that. Basically, there are a couple of hilarious moments, and the rest just bored me to the point of tears. Making witless noises such as “Piri piri fumi fumi” (I’m sure you’ll forgive me if I don’t get these incredibly profound lyrics exactly right) over a mix of Beethoven songs in an attempt to pass it off as a funny ending theme isn’t clever. It’s retarded. And that’s exactly what this show is.
I watched this in dub, and unusually enough, the dub actually fits the anime quite well. Having said that, even if it did suck, I can’t imagine watching it in sub will be much of an improvement. Shows like these can’t be saved by having good voices – they’re far, far beyond redemption.
On top of the random nonsense contained in the anime, it has no ending, just a beginning, because it was planned for more than two episodes – I’m knocking off major points for that. Although I guess I should be thankful that this didn’t go on for any longer. If it did, my sanity would probably be beyond redemption as well.
Unless you’re a fan of the most silly type of anime comedy imaginable, avoid “Dragon Half” like you would avoid a dragon that’s bent on eating your brains for lunch, because that’s the effect this anime will have on you.
“Dragon Half” is a little OVA, that does a lot more then I ever thought it could. It’s not the deepest most profound anime, and it’s not the most exciting thing to watch either. But it’s got some wild and crazy characters, and it’s laugh out loud funny. Sure it’s a little stupid, and a bit shallow. But it’s a cute show, and hey I LOVE the dub.
Plot/Story – 7
This little OVA series takes place in your standard “sword and sorcery” fantasy realm, and although it’s not original, it gives the series a bit of an edge. It’s a great setting for a comedy in my opinion. Also it does have a bit of a twist, like for example some non-coventional stuff will apear from time to time. Anyway this anime is about Mink and her friends trying to get tickets to this concert. Yes they have concerts ther ein this fantaysy world, and the guy Mink wants to see is some famouse idol, who sings all around the land, and fihghts bad guys, and does everything else. He’s quite the hot shot, and “big thing” going at this time. Mink’s a huge fan. The King of this land has it out for her, however, and wants nothing more then for Mink to be dead! He wants to marry her mother, and will do whatever it takes. For some reason he thinks if he does away with Mink, it will make this much easier on him. Her mother is a dragon by the way, and she’s still married to her father, a knight who slays dragons. Yeah a match made in heaven…or hell :P. Anyway the King and his men try to capture/kill Mink, Mink doesn’t seem to notice much and wants to go to the convert, her friends join her, hijinks ensue. It’s a very simple story, but one that works. Later Mink ends up in this huge tournament/fight against some of her enemies, and that’s where you will really start laughing your but off! The story is interesting, and never boring, thats for sure. Crazy things keep happening, at yet the story still moves along. And the ending is also quite fun. The show is very light hearted, goofy, and stupid at times, yet never too dumb. It may not be a smart show, but the way it does everything makes you feel dumber then the show is. This is a plus in my book. Also when everything is over, you get to see Mink with her top off. Not sure if this is good or bad, but you do. As Matt Greenfield so blunty puts it (in his commentary track) “And there’s the fanservice. The reword for watching it to the end 😉 “. Boobies and humor. Yes this show has it all folks.
Usually when/if I review a comedy I’ll try and describe the type of humor (slapstick, dialogue based, character based, parody, satire, puns, nonsensical, etc), but trying to pin down the type of humor in “Dragon Half”, is like trying to pin down a tiger. It won’t be easy, it’s crazy, and you will probally fail trying. So I’ll just say that “Dragon Half” is incredbly fast paced, and very very funny. To try and get you to understand what type of humor this is perhaps this will help. Greg Ayres once called it “Excel Saga…before we had Excel Saga”. So yeah…think about that one. I think that works quite nicely. This show outright paradies many different fantasy tropes in anime. It makes fun of a lot of things, and it also makes fun of its self. It doesn’t “reference” any shows in perticular (that I noticed), but it makes fun of common fantasy themes. It’s also completly random, and makes no sense. Yeah there’s a story, and it ends. But nothing you will watch will make any sense at all. This show is incredbly surreal. Laugh as things that make no sense happen in weird ways! I know I did! Much of the humor is slapstick, but not in an anoying way. There is some great wordplay once in awhile (and I must compliment ADV Films for the great script), and off the wall stuff happening constantly, and the dub really makes everything 10 times funnyer. You can tell ADV had fun dubbing this one. Anyway yeah the type of humor in this changes with the mood, although it tends to stay clearly on the “stupid” side of the humor equation. So yeah no real witty remarks, or intelligent satire. Just plain, dumb, (but FUNNY) jokes. And it’s not even high brow stuff. It’s not offensive, but this isn’t “Jokes with Einstein” either. Oh and although all the characters are stupid, even they laugh at Damaramu for being an idiot. He’s one of the “bad guys” out to get Mink for the King. And you should too, because he’s pretty stupid, yet funny. He keeps saying his own name when he talks, not because it makes him sound tough. But because if he didn’t he’d forget his own name. Yeah dumb as a herde of snails, running right into a pile of salt.
Art/Animation – 6
This is an OVA, and so I judged it as one. Despite being an OVA, it seemed to have gotten a rather poor budget. It has aged quite a bit by today’s standards. Comedy seems to never get the big budgets, but boy did they save on this one. It’s not bad or anything, but the animation is rather average. It does it’s job, with all the crazy and random things happening, but it is nothing to write home about either. The art is nice looking, although rather plane and undetailed, even for 93. It has some cute character designs that I really liked. And the color palette is very nice, incredbly bright, full of like, and cheery. A little TOO colorful at times, but I liked it. The backgrounds are rather average and plane looking.
Also I must bring up the fact that the characters are constantly changing from super deformed (aka Chibi form) to regular anime form throughout the show. They do a good job at this, although they didn’t blow me away either. It was a great choice however, and I admire the effert. It works with the crazy pace of the show, and the just so bizarre and outlandish nature of it all.
Sound (Music & Dub) – 9
The background themes, when played are quite good. Light hearted, poppy, and very cute. But where this series shines is in it’s AMAZING ending theme. “Watashi no Tamagoyaki” is a crazy pop song verson/remix of a famouse Beethoven song. Yeah they don’t mess around here. On top of that you have the meaningless, nonsenical lyrics such as ” Pappara funi-Funi Papparu hoe-hoe” song with such effert, feeling, and enthusiasm that you can’t help but love it. It’s so in your face, it’s so cute, it’s so fluffy, yet it all sounds very nice. This si the type of song you will get stuck in your head, and never be able to sleep. Yet you won’t care because the song is so catchy.
Dragon Half was dubbed in 2002 by ADV Films, in their Houston studio (Amusement Park Media, although its been known as a lot of things over the years. They keep changing the damn name I have no idea what they called this studio back in 2002. Anyway I rank it as one of, if not THE top ADR studio in North America). This is an anime ADV released sub-only YEARS before hand, and was known in some circles as “un-dubble” just because of how fast paced it was, and how much is going on. According to the commentary track, this was dubbed around Christmas, so they could have the largest talent pool possible (many actors who moved away come back for the Holidays). Also they seemed to have wanted Jessica Calvello to play the lead, and by this time she had already moved to New York City. Greenfeild (the ADR Director) said they could have dubbed this whenever, but he waited until it could have a great dub, as best as they could do. And I must say I am truly glad they waited to dub this. As this is one of the funniest dubs out there. First the casting of Jessica Calvello as Mink…dead on! I love her in this role. She’s perfect in every way. Not that Mink is a very difficult charcter to “get”, but I really can’t picture anyone else playing her. Also Amanda Winn Lee as Vina, the main bad girl and the King’s Daughter, was another brilliant casting. She is truly funny in this. Like I fell off my stea with some of the stuff she says. Hilary Haag as Pia, one of Mink’s friend, was another great choice. She fits these “little, tiny and silly” characters quite well.
As far as the performances go, Not sure what I can say really. This isn’t a Shakespeare play, it’s a lowbrow comedy, off the wall anime, with lots and lots of crazy dialogue. But as far as comedies go, I dare you to find a better acted one out there. This show’s dub is just great, truly top grade! I just love how insane everyone is. The main cast, the small roles, the one line guys, everyone does a great, no wonderful job. And as I already said, Jessica Calvello is amazing in this. You can tell she had a lot of fun with it. No one out there could do what she did with this one here. Also shout out to Tiffany Grant, who plays a small, but important character from the second episode. She gives Dug Fin, this small magical critter, such a cute, yet mean spirited voice, that you just gata love it. Everything she says will have you rollying on the floor laughing. Aaron Krohn as the idol Mink wants to see, Dick Saucer, is so OVER THE TOP, you will smile. You will just totally get this guy, every bit of him. He did a great job as Kaji in Eva, and you can tell this was no fluke. He’s a real fit for these types of characters in my opinion. In fact you can tell a lot of thought went into the casting of this show. And Greenfield’s mark is all over this one. I expect the best from him, and I got nothing less then that. One of the best ADR directors in the biz.
Enjoyment – 9
This is very subjective, as if this humor style doesn’t work with you, you probally won’t like this show very much. But I can’t help but to love it. I laughed, I laughed,I kept laughing, I laughed some more. It’s really a fun, enjoyable, and cute little OVA. I’m glad it didn’t overstay it’s welcome, as two episodes is more then enough. Anymore and the jokes would get stale, it wouldn’t be able to keep up with it’s fast paced nature, and the characters could get anoying. But as this is it’s perfect. In fact all of the characters are likeable and cool, even the truly stupid ones. That takes some good writing, because sadly many times the truly DUMB characters get anoying fast. Not so here. Now the show is kind of hallow, shallow, and devoid of anything more then joke after joke really. But I feel the crazy characters get me though that. They’re not really deep, or very well developed, but their likeable, and you enjoy watching them.
Commentaries can sometimes be the most boring thing ever, or the best extra feature on the DVD. Luckily for us, the latter is true for this one. Matt Greenfeild the ADR director, and one of the head honchos at then-ADV Films (now Section 23) is main voice you will be hearing. And he actually talks in debth about the this very shallow show, and explaisn the dubbing process. His wife, and voice actor Tiffany Grant (who has an important role in this) joins him. And he tried to talk matter-of-factly about the show, but he really can’t because it’s so funny. Ok maybe because I’m a nerd, and fan of Greenfeild, or perhaps because this commentary track is truly funny, either way I found I really enjoyed this.One of the better commentaries out there by far. Not only is it interesting and informative, but it’s also very funny. It’s like if your up for more laughs after watching the show, put this on to kill another hour. Now it’s not as good as his commentary on “Puni Puni Poemy” but it’s still very good. (In the commentary for “Puni Puni Poemy” he tries to talk about the show, but CAN’T because the entire cast is there with him, and everyone is constantly saying something laugh out loud funny. This constant struggle between Greenfeild trying to talk in debth about another very shallow show, and everyone just goofing on the show is really an undrescrible listen. It’s one of my favorites! Very enjoyable. In fact funny/more interesting then the show its self, at least for that OVA). So in short, give the commentary a listen if your a dub fan. It’s one of the better ones out there.
This is a very shallow, and stupid show. But it’s also very very funny. It’s humor is hard to pin down, and you never know what it’s ganna do next. The fantasy setting is a plus, and the characters while, 2 dimensional, are very likeable (even the bad guys and stupid dudes). The dub is one of the best for a comedy, and you will be on the floor with this one. The show may be a little too crazy and fast paced for some, but it’s weird nature is something I couldn’t help but love. Also Beethoven ending theme for the win! And boobies. First they try and hide them, but then they show all. I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but it’s boobies.
Yeah…watch this crazy show. It’s well worth the price of the DVD.
10: CB Chara Go Nagai World
English: CB Character: Nagai Gou World
MAL Score: 6.85
Various characters from Go Nagai works including Devil Man, Mazinger, and Violence Jack, become trapped in a parody world where they all be come super deformed. They get trapped in this mishmash, fighting each other and are trying to figure a way back to their own world.
9: Animation Seisaku Shinkou Kuromi-chan
English: Animation Runner Kuromi
MAL Score: 6.92
After being inspired by the fictional anime, “Luis Monde III”, Mikiko “Kuromi” Oguro goes to animation school and and finally lands the job of her dreams at Studio Petit. Upon arriving, she meets the head of production. Unfortunately for her, he dies soon after meeting her and passes his position unto her. Now that she’s head of production of “Time Journeys”, it’s up to her to rally up the lazy animator’s and finish the second episode in a week.
Nonetheless, as opposed to the almost methodical approach Shirobako follows throughout its run, Animation Runner Kuromi’s is much more comedy-centered. And not only because it doesn’t have much time to waste (much like the animators doing their job there) but because the whirlwind of a pace it follows constitutes the very core of its style.
And to understand the comedy we need to have a glance at the Staff that created it. This OVA was directed by Akitarou Daichi, a pretty prolific worker of the industry that had his name in numerous series from the 90s and 00s, from whom we can highlight the likes of Kodomo no Omocha, Fruits Basket, Now and Then, Here and There, Nurse Angel Ririka or Bokura ga Ita. Also important to note the work of Hajime Watanabe, character designer for some of the aforementioned as well as other well-known shows such as Kaleido Star and School Rumble.
Out of all those, Kuromi has a look and feel that resembles Kodomo no Omocha to a breathtaking extent. Definitely the hectic rhythm and unique slapstick work wonders with the new subject matter we are presented with.
Ultimately, there’s an important moral to be learned here. Coordinating projects is not an easy task, no matter the type of activity in which you’re working. Both Shirobako and Kuromi depict problems in production, yet the former prioritizes a positive message built around the profession, almost like a love letter towards animation. The latter’s message is even more fundamental, aiming for human understanding, hard-work and empathy.
Every anime watcher needs to experience either of these to get to the bottom of production and unravel the actual human work that any project constitutes, how rarely anime is made solely by the efforts of one studio but by an extensive net of connections that goes well beyond what we first imagine.
In this regard there are also documentaries and articles covering the different challenges of artistic creation within the industry. An example could be the one showing the crafting of Only Yesterday, with a highlight being how an animator spent an entire year drawing anything but safflowers. The truth is sometimes stranger than fiction, so one might be better off getting their first exposure to the whole picture by this hilarious, yet definitely introspective treat.
The story itself is pretty basic. What really makes it shine are the jokes and references (look out for Lupin III *cough cough* I mean Luis Monde III) along with it’s unique setting. Be careful, because you might actually learn a thing or two about the animation industry!
The art is very cute and chibi-esque. This often adds to the shows comedy via exaggerated movement. It’s not particularly unique in any way besides being chibi, but all of the characters have interesting designs and don’t all look the same.
The characters all have different personalities, and part of the story is about Kuromi trying to understand each one of them so that she can get the animators to do their jobs. The only characters who undergo any development are Kuromi and Hamako, but considering this is a 40 minute ova there doesn’t really need to be much.
I watched the dub, which seemed to be pretty well done. The music never stands out, but it does it’s job. Sound effects are pretty good too.
So basically, you really don’t have a reason not to watch this. It’s only 40 minutes long and extremely easy to find (wink wink, nudge nudge youtube.) Check it out if you get the chance!
Ever have a life long job in mind? now, imagine getting it but you didn’t realize the struggles that came with it. Moving on into the job the show demonstrates a compassionate female who works her butt off to not only get her job done but others. Her valiant efforts are recognized by her coworkers and little by little with their helpful aid they finish the job on time.
Artwork is outstanding! sure i could say it underrated but having seen this show makes me realize what the anime could have been if there ‘was no direction’.
Characters are matched perfectly with their emotions. Whether it is anger or confusion.
8: Animation Seisaku Shinkou Kuromi-chan 2
English: Animation Runner Kuromi 2
Japanese: アニメーション制作進行くろみちゃん 2
MAL Score: 6.94
Following Studio Petit’s popularity for Time Journey’s, the crew is now faced with 3 anime at the same time. Rushing to fill the quotas, the owner of Studio Petit hires Takashimadaira, a veteran producer to help Kuromi. However, all Takashimadaira cares about is making deadlines, severely hurting the quality of the images. Shihonmatsu, who has been helping Kuromi, gets angry at the new producer and leaves, leaving Kuromi with a difficult choice: to choose between the quality or the deadline.
Studio Petit managed to survive the production of “Time Journeys,” but now that show’s finished, and in its place they’ve got no less than three series to animate, with just four artists, one manager and one director – not to mention one very bedraggled animation runner. And it doesn’t help that Shihonmatsu picked this week to quit smoking. As the staff starts to fall behind their crushing deadlines, the owner calls in an old “pro,” Takashimadaira, to get production back on track. But once he starts putting speed above quality, the Petit team has to choose between following orders and doing their jobs right.
Just like the first one… given a hard job and succeeding. Sad to say that is where the rating dropped a little for me. I am glad they did a second but why not try something different like attack their out of his mind boss! perhaps, that would have brought on violence in the workplace if they had so i can understand. Just something different then the same routine.
P.s. When the expert was brought in and he brought in his two experts can anyone tell me why the older one of the two’s voice sound so familiar?
7: Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W OVA
Japanese: 這いよれ！ニャル子さん W OVA
MAL Score: 7.07
Hot Spring-themed OVA of Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W.
Obviously, this is a sorta sequel to the first two seasons of Nyaruko San and watching it without watching the first two seasons would be pointless and just good for a completion which isn’t worth it (your better off watching Shitcom if you really want a completion). The episode continued off the humor the first two seasons produced with a fabulous Hot Springs episode that offered ecchi and mini Kuukos! If you weren’t a fan of the humor Nyaruko San offered nor really were a fan in the first place, watching this Ova will most likely not changed your mind at all about the series and probably will still leave you disliking it completely.
Though, if you were a fan. What isn’t there to love?
I suggest watching this if you’ve seen both seasons and enjoyed it to at least a Six out of Ten. Thanks for reading!
This OVA is roughly fifteen minutes long and brings the crew of Haiyore! Nyaruko-San W (2nd season) back for an encore and delivers with the usual comedic goodness that Nyaruko-San offers. I must warn people who truly hate ecchi that there are butt shots, and a few of them at that. I personally enjoyed it, but it is completely understandable that some will not. I really suggest watching both seasons of Nyaruko-San before watching this because it was animated after the two seasons and takes place after them. I’ll admit, there is no real story to this OVA and was likely created for the fanservice, but fans of Nyaruko-San will most likely enjoy this episode.
I’m pretty confident most-all of the important characters are shown at least once, so if you like a certain character you’ll be really glad seeing them again.
Overall, I am fan of the anime so I award this a 7/10. I enjoyed it completely and believe some others will as well.
Story (6.45/10): For plot, the story of the OVA is really nothing special. More or less it’s your average hot springs OVA where the characters go to a hot springs and the only thing that makes it different than other OVA of the same category is with the show’s unique charm and comical gags. Safe to say, this OVA more or less fulfilled what it wanted to achieve.
The OVA like its parent story do what it planned on doing from the get go, become a very entertaining time killer. Safe to say, the OVA fully completed said goal and overall became a nice recap of the style of the series by making everything (literally everything) as comical as it possibly can, which for this OVA, worked towards its benefit.
+ Original flair to the show kept
– Rather bland base plot idea
Characters (7.01/10): If you’ve seen either one of this show’s two seasons, than you should at least be somewhat familiar with its characters. (To some extent I hope.)
Practically everyone from the original series shows up again. Our main protagonist Mahiro, the show’s mascot and my personal favorite of the show, Nyaruko, Kuko, Hastua, and a host of other side characters that more or less pop in and out of importance.
What I think the OVA did well was keeping the original personalities of these characters correct, thus making them as memorable as they were before, and therefore as enjoyable as they were before. Though, mind you, these characters have no deep drama or character development within them, so more or less they’re one-sided people that just have outrageous and quite hilarious character to them.
+ Original character personalities kept
+ Character gags persisted
+ Memorable people
– Rather one-sided overall
– Less than extraordinary supporting cast.
Art and Sound (7.57/10 and 6.46/10): For art the series has kept its original flair with its artstyle. All of the characters look just as good as they did when they were first introduced, and there was really no jarring animation at all to look at.
There was still the quite comical side to the show with overly exaggerated whatever and chibis, which was still quite well done I feel. Note though, there is fanservice in this OVA as it’s a hot springs episode; but, if you’ve seen the series before, fanservice should not come as a surprise at all due to the fact that many times in the series, Nyaruko well, pulls things out of her lady parts because, reasons. (Plus she tries to seduce Mahiro, I don’t know.)
In terms of music, the show retains its original tracks from the second season of the show. In my opnion, the music sounds rather cheerful and as pointless and exaggerated as the series it plays for, but it’s not memorable. While the beginning part is actually scarringly catchy, everything else is sort of meh.
+ Pretty well detailed art
– Somewhat forgettable music. (I can’t get that beginning part out of my head!)
Personal Enjoyment (7.35/10): Haiyore! Nyaruko-san has always been a rather favorable series of mine. It has this wacky atmosphere that it doesn’t even need to try in because everything about it feels so natural. Even in a generic feeling OVA, the absurdity of the series still came true and persisted throughout the 23 minutes I watched this.
The show’s personal flair existed throughout the whole thing, and it was nice to get a good laugh out of a series that meant to be extremely pointless. All in all, this OVA managed to recapture the flair of the original series and was quite enjoyable to watch. The series is not a masterpiece mind you, but it’s a good time killer if you really wish to watch one.
Overall Score: (6.98/10)

what special about this is that there are some punchlines that will make you crack a smile thanks to sue :3. you can also feel the bitterness of unrequited love and also a bit of romance to some of the club’s couples.
overall, it is quite fun and “i think she took something special to me”… watch till the end 😀
thanks for reading 🙂
4: Haiyore! Nyaruko-san F
MAL Score: 7.48
A new OVA of the light novel Haiyore! Nyaruko-san, titled Haiyore! Nyaruko-san F, has been green-lit.
(Source: MAL News)
Expecting you’ve watched the other season (Haiyore! Nyaruko-san and W) you can expect the same hilarious parodies and the wacky awkward situations Mahiro is put through by the alien Trio + Mom and Shantak-kun.
In this episode Mahiro and his household are offered tickets by Tamao and Yoichi to tag along to a popular amusement park that just recently opened. The theme is “A realistic escape game” where participants do various games throughout the park to find the end, unexpectedly a new character arrives to tries to interfere with the groups daily lives.
The art style is the same as the previous seasons. Pretty standard quality of animation consisting of bright vivid colors, detailed character art, fluent animation, and well drawn backgrounds. All the art and animation fit very well with each other it will come down to personal opinion whether you enjoy it or not.
The sound is good there is nothing really to complain about, but at the same time nothing to really too out of the ordinary. The voice actors fit their characters roles and personality perfectly. The sound quality was good, the dialogue between characters was fluent and clear, and the action scenes sound effects where on point nothing seemed to be missed. As for the OP and ED I found them both really enjoyable to listen to they were catchy and entertaining.
After the long ride of 2 seasons and couple of OVAs thrown in Mahiro and Nyaruko FINALLY start getting a good development with their relationship. The whole 1 sided open relationship x tsundere male was ongoing for too long. In this episode we finally see character development and a change of direction. There was a huge gain of satisfaction I had while watching this episode. I’ll let you judge on if you think it was satisfying or unsatisfying.
I love the Haiyore! Nyaruko-san series I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in comedy and parody. There wasn’t a single moment that I didn’t find enticing or enjoyable. It was one of those anime that will always remember and have a special place for.
Overall this 1 episode really filled my expectations I was left satisfied and happy. The story, art, sound, and character development were all good and enjoyable. I really hope that Haiyore! Nyaruko-san episodes continue to come out, but it is looking grim since the light novel ended sadly. The only 1 down side I have for Nyaruko-san F was the fact that they made it only 1 episode I would of loved to get an entire season 3.
Story (7.89/10): The story for this OVA is very simple. Nyaruko, Mahiro, and co. are given tickets to a new attraction in town thanks to Tamao being suddenly given enough tickets for the entire cast. (How convenient) Upon entering this attraction, Mahiro and Nyaruko are thrown into a dangerous situation that requires them to get out, and there, we have our story.
Since this is an OVA, the story of it doesn’t really go all out, however unlike most OVA, this one actually has a more story-like aspect rather than just a random fun episode filled with fanservice or what have you. Rather, this OVA showcases our main two characters being thrown into a situation which in turn, has our signature male tsundere Mahiro, to think about the relationship he has with the strange cthulu girl that has invaded his life for about 2 seasons + 2 OVA’s already.
The OVA itself ends with a bit of a cliffhanger ending, making me think that we might have something of a third season of the show (even though it’s considered a sequel to W.) because at the end, it introduces us to a new character and progression with the relationship between our main two characters, but only one can hope. Still though, overall, this was a nice OVA. Nothing to really get scared over because this is Nyaruko after all, and issues in this show always seem to resolves themselves.
+ Nice, new story
+ Character relationship progression (and it’s between Nyaruko and Mahiro. That’s even more surprising.)
Characters (7.77/10): Like the rest of the series before “F” here, there really isn’t any change in cast. We still have Nyaruko with her lovesick/thirsty behavior towards Mahiro, we still have Kuuko and Hasuta being their normal same sex lovey selves (not that there’s anything wrong with that), and the others.
The only real big change with this OVA in terms of characters is, as I’ve stated before, the relationship between Mahiro and Nyaruko. There is actually some progress with specifically, how Mahiro actually sees the crazy Cthulu girl, and makes some decent headway towards what we’re all probably (hopefully) thinking, which is the pairing of the two. (At least, I hope I’m not the only one praying for that to happen.)
+ Cast is the same memorable selves as they are
+ Character development
Art and Sound (7.88/10 and 7.11/10): The art for Nyaruko-san F is style-wise, relatively unchanged. There really isn’t much difference in the actual style of the show, but quality-wise, since there’s been a gap between the last OVA and this one, it looks significantly better, a whole lot brighter, clearer, and better quality. I like it.
In terms of sound, it’s a bit of an interesting call this one. For this OVA, it’s actually given rather than the original tracks from the previous season, a new set of OP and ED tracks that are completely different in terms of OP and ED visuals, and the actual track itself. What bothers me is that for some reason, they’re not really as addicting or soul-crushingly annoying as the first two were (especially the first season one…), so that was a bit of a letdown.
+ Much better art quality
+ New OP and ED tracks
– New tracks weren’t all that memorable sadly
Personal Enjoyment (8.10/10): The Nyaruko series has always been a very enjoyable series to me personally. It has a lot of parodies within it, it’s a wacky series that really doesn’t require much thought when watching it (cause lord knows you’ll be even more confused if you try and make some sense out of it), and the odd relationship between Mahiro and Nyaruko always interested me.
Did I like this OVA?
Yes, I did. It’s always fun to watch a series you enjoy again with new material, so there wasn’t really any reason for me to not enjoy this to some extent.
What didn’t I like about this OVA?
Nothing really, except that it wasn’t longer.
Would I recommend this OVA?
Yeah, if you’re a fan of Nyaruko. Likewise to the rest of the series, this OVA plays out relatively the same, if not a little bit more deeper into the relationship between the characters. Personally, I hope that this isn’t the end to the Nyaruko anime because tbh, with the way this ended, they’re either trolling us, or hinting at it, and I hope it’s the latter, because this show is really fun to watch.
Overall Score: 7.66/10
3: Genshiken OVA
Japanese: げんしけん OVA
MAL Score: 7.65
It’s the start of a new year for the Genshiken crew, and that means recruiting new members. Always a dreaded task, The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture manages to get Chika Ogiue pushed onto them from the Manga Club. With her introduction of “I’m Ogiue and I hate otaku,” this year certainly will be anything but boring.
Genshiken follows the daily lives of the members of a university-based club consisting mainly of otaku. They watch anime and read manga (Kujibiki Unbalance-related doujinshi mainly), play hentai games, put together Gundam models and visit the big fair known as ComiFes twice a year. Genshiken does not offer a quasi-philosophical storyline full of twists and riddles. There are some serious moments, but all in all we’re talking pure, awesome comedy.
New to the club is Ogiue Chika. For some reason, she jumped out the window from the university’s manga club and the chairman suggested that she’d join Genshiken instead. The first thing she says when she enters the club room is that she absolutely hates otaku. However, it is soon revealed that her secret passion is drawing and reading yaoi and it’s hard for her not to imagine indecent scenes starring the male members of the club. Every time her secret passion is talked about, she gets flustered and starts blathering incoherently in her Touhoku accent. Ogiue alone makes Genshiken OVA (and season two) worth watching. I love her.
Another new member is Manabu Kuchiki. He made an apperance in the first season, but for some reason, he didn’t join Genshiken. Kuchi, as he wants to be called, is one of the most crazy and whimsical characters I’ve ever encountered. In real life, I would hate him. However, together with Ogiue he adds a batch of randomness that the first season lacked and I can’t help but love his frequent and crazy outbursts.
Genshiken OVA isn’t impressive audiovisually. The art and animation are decent but far from marvelous. This being a comedy anime, it doesn’t matter that much, in my opinion. Same goes for the music: it fits the mood and is rather enjoyable.
Genshiken’s main strength is the characters and the two new members of the group add a lot of humour of the kind that the first season was lacking. The OVA is a great introduction to the second season and offers some of the best laughs I’ve ever experienced watching anime. Wathcing these three episodes of pure awesomness is an hour well spent.
Story wise Genshiken is amazing but you can really say much because there are only three OVA’s, but it’s really the same awesomeness of the Genshiken series
The music is the same which give it a Familiar feel. The opening and ending are great giving it more of a feel like Genshiken.
The Art is what really let these OVA down; the backgrounds are fine it’s just the characters. After the great art we had with Genshiken I thought it would be just as great but it is a real let down the characters look really retarded and their expressions are even worse it looks like someone drew the characters in paint.
The characters are the same crazy otakus doing what they do best: be otaku. Some more characters are added and their lives continue.
If the like Genshiken then you will like the OVAs. If you hoping for the same art then you will be disappointed.
You will like the Genshiken OVA’s if you’re a fan of Genshiken. It would be really hard not to like Genshiken unless you are a Shonen junky. You might find it hard to find the OVA’s but you will find them eventually.
What can possibly go wrong in 3 episodes of Genshiken, which had previously shown so much consistency in the first series? Quite a lot, apparently.
The failings of the OVA’s cannot be attributed to the lack of new content. In fact, the OVA contains the introduction of two new characters, both of which feature in “Genshiken 2”, so skipping them isn’t really an option if you intend to watch the second season.. Well, I say they introduce two new characters, but one of them is a returning character, and it’s one that I would have preferred to see the back of, because he happens to be one of the most annoying characters in the first season who, thankfully, only appeared in one lone episode. His presence was fine enough in that one episodes, but having him as one of the regulars really tested my patience.
The second character, Ogiue, is the more important one, because she is one of the central characters in “Genshiken 2”. Her introduction isn’t exactly the greatest, as she became a member of the society through some really contrived event. I don’t really get the whole otaku hating part of her character either. But other than that, Ogiue does show some promising potential, and can probably be considered one of the few successes of the OVA, albeit a rather moderate one.
The returning characters provide one of the main reasons why I found “Genshiken OVA” so disappointing – they were just all so different from the ones I knew and loved in “Genshiken”. Kasukabe seem to have lost her edge and become tame. I know she was supposed to have mellowed slightly in the club, but still, the change is so large when measured against what she was like at the end of “Genshiken” that she barely feels like the same person. What Kasukabe lost, Ohno appear to have gained. In “Genshiken”, she was a very timid character, only expressing enthusiasm where cosplay is involved. In the OVA however, she has become a lot more aggressive and confrontational, almost unrecognisable from the Ohno in “Genshiken”. Even Madarame, while not changed too much, appear to be going back through old ground by mulling over the feelings that was already subtly hinted but dealt with during one episode in the original series. Though it was never fully resolved in that one episode, I always felt that its unresolved state was probably the best conclusion of all… but now they’ve gone and dug it up again needlessly just to make more of a meal of it. But some things are best left alone, especially since in the case of the OVA, this exercise of repeating what was already done doesn’t exactly throw up any new conclusions. The subtlety in “Genshiken” was one of the reasons that made it so good, and it’s a quality that is sorely missing from the OVA.
And it’s a feeling prevalent throughout that the OVA is a completely different beast from the series. Even on surface, the differences are clear from the style of the animation. In “Genshiken”, the general feel of the art is suitably mundane for a slice of life, despite the odd moment where the SD (super deformity) effect is used. In the OVA however, the colours are brighter and everything seem more cartoony, more comical, with the feeling that the characters are more prone to suddenly go into SD mode. Being someone who likes his slice of life anime to be mundane, I preferred the old style.
Just about the only point during which I felt the charm of the old “Genshiken” within this OVA is at the “that’s a definite fail!” moment at end of the “makeover” episode. I’d watched the original series several years before I watched the OVA. With so much of the anime’s feel modified, and most of the character consistency thrown right out of the window, it probably would have been enough to make me doubt my memory of the original series had I not rewatched it before the OVA. The worst thing is that, due to the OVA being an essential bridge between the two seasons of “Genshiken” as opposed to standalone stories, I can’t even pretend it doesn’t exist, so it’s left as a permanent blemish on the franchise.
2: Carnival Phantasm
Japanese: カーニバル ファンタズム
MAL Score: 7.88
How do you resolve a conflict between powerful spirits of famous heroes for a prize capable of granting any wish? Wage a war that will cost your blood, sweat, and tears? Too much work—how about a game-show competition instead?
Carnival Phantasm takes a number of characters from Type-Moon’s original works, and puts them in a variety of light-hearted scenarios which parody their respective series. Watch Lancer suffering due to his low luck stat, or watch the egotistical King of Heroes gladly kneel to a dominatrix King of Knights. Just remember to leave your sanity at the door.
Make a spin-off? Okay… Give it to a freshman company that could ruin it all? Alright…
TAKE MY MONEY!
Carnival Phantasm is an OVA Comedy Sketch Anime based on the Manga called Take-MOON which was written by Type-MOON’s Eri Takenashi to celebrate Type-MOON’s 10th Anniversary.
I originally heard about this anime back in 2010 but I never had the chance to watch it. So I decided to watch it last year; and this has became my number one favourite of all time.
There really isn’t a major story and I’m A-OK with that! The anime follows the many plots the Manga has and revolves around the cast from Melty Blood, Fate/stay night and Tsukihime. Each one having a comedic plot; and the hosts of this anime being the Neco-Arcs from the Melty Blood franchise. There really isn’t much to say as there are multiple plots hanging, but they are pulled off so well I cannot help but laugh.
The art is great but it can be very noticeable that some things were missing or re-drawn. One example of an error is during the OP; one of the schoolgirls on the far right will vanish just before she leaves the screen. While these are a few errors, I still like the art direction, it feels very close to the original artwork of the VN and Fighting Games. The OP always brings a smile to my face whenever I see it; the ED is great to see too. This anime is very pretty to look at if you ignore some of the errors.
The sound in this anime is just… how can I put it?… SO HAPPY!
The OP Super Affection by Minami Kuribayashi, Miyuki Hashimoto, Faylan, Aki Misato, yozuca* and rino always puts a huge smile on my face with how upbeat it sounds. The ED Fellows by Masaaki Endoh is a huge treat to listen to as well. The rest of the sound effects are very nice to hear to aswell.
The characters we know and love from Fate/stay, Melty Blood and Tsukihime have all kept their original personalities but upped the ante with a sprinkle of humour added into their personality. There are alot of characters so I will only go through a few. One of the most popular characters in this anime being Lancer (voiced by Nobutoshi Canna) is the biggest bit of Slapstick Humour in this anime and recurring gag. As he is always dying. Satsuki Yumizuka (voiced by Omi Minami) is a member of a stand up group called “Back-Alley Alliance” as she tries to do unfunny stand up comedy.
All the other characters are a treat to see. Even those with minor appearances are a great enjoyment to watch.
If this rating system could go any higher. I’d give it a twelve; but the enjoyment here is absolutely great. The humour in these episodes is hilarious and will always bring a smile to your face, the jokes are great, the recurring gags are hilarious; characters are so memorable and great to see. The OP is just so cheery too. It feels like the right recipe that can be watched again and again, with the comedy never running dry.
This anime to me is just amazing. I had my doubts about it at first, but I’m glad I got to see it; its my favourite of all time and I enjoyed it. Fans of Type-MOON’s Visual Novels, Fighting Games and Fate/stay night anime franchises will love this.
SEA-SON FOUR! SEA-SON FOUR!
As I understand, this anime is based off the Take-Moon manga created by Eri Takanashi, whom you may know best as the creator of the relatively popular series Kannagi. If you’ve been introduced to Kannagi and its offbeat brand of humor, then you might know what to expect…or do you? The fact is, Carnival Phantasm’s humor is way more polished and wacky than Kannagi, and that’s coming from someone who considers himself a fan of both. It’s clear just by viewing one episode that Takanashi is passionate about the Nasuverse, bringing in even the most obscure relics and fan favorites such as Neco-Arc Chaos, Sion, and Caren. Even the denizens of Melty Blood are present!
Going into all the individual segments, easter eggs, and recurring gags would make this a very, very long review, so I’ll just leave all those for you to watch for yourself. But some of my personal favorite segments are the Grail-kun, Afterschool Alleyway Alliance, The 5th Seihai Grand Prix, Berserker’s First Errand, and of course the omnipresent Seihai-kun. The Badump! Date Plan segment gets an honorable mention simply for being exactly what it sounds like: the protagonists of Fate and Tsukihime trying to create their own respective harems. If you know why that might pose many, many problems and you can realize how absolutely, ridiculously absurd that would be, then this series is definitely for you. Things even get serious in typical Nasu fashion with the episode “Final Dead Lancer”. At its core, it is nothing more than a love letter to the Type-Moon universe, and I wouldn’t ask for anything more.
Carnival Phantasm is beautifully animated and has one of the catchiest OPs in recent memory. The ED pales in comparison, but still serves as a nice dramatis personae to the Nasuverse. The Tiger Dojo segments are the stuff of legend–you won’t believe how good they are till you see them.
You won’t find any mollusks or postmodern, unconventional, often maddening writing styles in this series, but this is without a doubt the best and most hilarious take on the Nasuverse since “Platonic Magician H” or “Kaleido Prism Illya”. I highly recommend it to anyone.
SEA-SON FOUR! SEA-SON FOUR!
Story- This don’t need no story, its basically a whole bunch of comedic skits, so the presence of story is neither needed nor wanted
Art – It is an ONA so art isn’t really gonna be that good considering the budget ONA’s get, but the use of simplistic art favors the humor, in fact it wouldn’t have been as good if the art was high budget.
Sound – Best Opening ever made, in all of creation.
Characters – All the Type Moon Characters, made brilliantly hilarious. Best Type Moon Fan service ever
Enjoyment – This represents that maximum amount of enjoyment a human being can ever have.
Overall – You need to have watched and be familiar with the other Type Moon Anime: Fate, Tsukihime. But if you liked those…. this will be a better present then anything anyone has given you…… Even a car.
If you haven’t watched it, and you’ve seen other type moon anime, watch it now. It is pretty much the best comedy you can get.
1: Gintama°: Aizome Kaori-hen
Japanese: 銀魂 愛染香篇
MAL Score: 8.41
The red-light district, Yoshiwara, is suddenly taken over by “Aizen Kou,” an incense that has the ability to make anyone fall in love with the first person they see. Having been outlawed for its strong potency, the love drug was thought to have disappeared from the red-light district for good; however, it seems to have found its way back inside Yoshiwara’s walls and now has the entire district under its influence.
Of those affected is the cold-hearted Hyakka captain, Tsukuyo, and the first person she sees after inhaling the smoke is none other than the brazen Yorozuya leader, Gintoki Sakata. Unbeknownst to everyone else though, she was already attracted to Gintoki. With those hidden feelings now intensified, Tsukuyo must overcome her afflictions and work with the Yorozuya to return everyone back to normal.
The story is nothing special, even i would say it’s rather confusing, i felt the “main antagonist” just as a plot device to start the situation shown. Her reasons to do what she do are not reliable at all, but in the end the show knows how to fix it.
This OVA is hilarious. It certainly lacks the typical referential jokes which Gintama abuses day by day and has a lot of sexual jokes and crazy situations related to that instead. I’ll always be amazed by how Gintama manages to go insane in just a second. This OVA is full of it.
However, the show is not full of humour: The romance used to build the plot and the character herself are not good per se, if she lived in Yoshiwara all this time they could show her us previously to develop her well; however, the ending of this situation is good enough.
The animation is the same as usual Gintama TV adaptation, as well as the sound, using powerful and well known tracks and the OP16, which was the last in Gintama° before things turned serious so it is appropiate for this OVA.
Overall i enjoyed this just as much as Gintama TV series, but the plot is not that good (just one comedy arc and not amazing though) and it’s just two episodes. But is fun as hell, so, if you like Gintama watch it, recommended.
This episode was hilarious and very typical of Gintama comedy. The only reason it didn’t get a ten is because the antagonist’s story was a bit lame. Usually Gintama is really good at evoking emotion, even in silly episodes, but the antagonist for this arc wasn’t all that great. I think this could’ve benefited from three episodes only because it would’ve given time to build up the antagonist’s story and make it feel weighted like it should’ve. On top of that, the comedy was awesome, but the plotline of this arc could’ve been used a little better. For example, the characters used and how they interacted with each other weren’t as outrageous as a usual Gintama arc like this would be.
That being said, I still laughed my ass of the whole time. There are moments in this arc that will have you rolling because of the seiyuu or the dialogue. So, yes, more could’ve been done for this arc to make it better, but if you just want to have fun for an hour and see Gintoki being an idiot, this fits the bill. As does most of Gintama.
