I wanna win the prize they did! No more free address labels!
Behind Closed doors starts off innocently enough. Young couple Yoshino and Kenichi lived in their small apartment, going about life, mending clothes, having sex and sorting through the mail which is where the real story begins. They both seem content in their life – happy, normal and quite the sex life. While enjoying post coital bliss, Yoshino mentions that they received a package in the mail. It turns out that they’d won some contest and inside the box is the standard congratulations letter and G.P.S. car navigational equipment. So they hook it up and started following the directions from the blinking screen, and end up at a large castle-like mansion far out in the country.
They knock on the door, are greeted by the maid, and welcomed into the house. The master of the manor is out so they are invited to stay the night. They had to wait for him to arrive so they could discuss their prize. This is where all the fun begins for these two.
They “break in” their new room and the next morning they’re served breakfast. After that, they go exploring through the mansion’s many rooms. In the library, Yoshino finds some sort of S&M training book and gets a bit of a blush on her face after scoping out the pictures. Perhaps she’s got an adventurous side to her.
As far as the hentai scenes go, there are many. Behind closed doors has something for everyone within it: maids, gymnasts, the mature older woman, nurses, innocent virgins, young girls, lactation, bondage S&M, family togetherness, and possible impregnation.
Our lone male protagonist starts off normal enough, but after each surprise around the corner, he becomes more and more the sadist. At one point he and Yoshino are separated and in his quest to find her, he becomes more and more distracted by the lovely ladies behind the closed doors. He ends up jumping in the sac with them, sharing a drink, and whapping them with a baseball bat.
The animation is some of the best I’ve seen out of everything Anime 18 has released, especially for a fairly old title (2001). Colors are rich and vibrant and the character designs are attractive: well detailed below the waist and are unique to each girl or guy, except the gaggle of men in matching tuxedos. Something I think that’s worth mentioning is that during certain points in the show, we are “treated” to these close up X-ray vision shots of Kenichi’s crotch when he becomes aroused by something or someone. I just found these particularly icky -- and they keep popping up in my face.
It’s a rarity for me to enjoy anything from Anime 18. It’s too good to be coming from them but surprisingly, it is. This show is one of my favorites. I especially like to pop it in my DVD player just after watching a terrible show to make me feel better. If you like any of the things I listed above, you will love Behind Closed Doors, so go buy it. Now. I mean it stop reading and go.
