When will people learn to leave mansions in the middle of nowhere alone?
Black Widow starts off with a group of friends on a camping trip in the woods. I never knew animated people went camping. See? You learn something new everyday. The kids get caught in the rain while on a hike and they get lost. Lucky for them, they stumble upon a conveniently placed mansion hidden in the woods. The doors unlocked, no one appears to be home. They see nothing but a glass of whiskey and a single cigarette still burning in the ashtray. Something’s wrong with this picture, yet the progress. After the group their exploration, they find the doors and windows bolted shut and no way out.
Our cast of characters is your typical group. There’s the tough asshole, the privileged girl, the little princess, the sporty girl, the weak and simpering guy, and of course, lest we forget, the hero. True to form, the kids start disappearing one by one and two by two. Some end up chained to a wall, fellated and killed. One girl gets a lesson on how doggies make babies; another makes friends with a cute and cuddly slimy bug that’s just looking for a warm place to live in; another girl is gang-raped and killed. Blondie gets the double stuff in a candle-lit room. It’s actually a very pretty scene if you ignore the rape and bondage.
I expected nothing less when the boys and girls started dying off. However, I was glad to see that the muscle-bound jerk go. Oh, yes, and of course the simpering weak scaredy boy, terrified about possibly being, next turns to raping one of the girls. He really made a bad choice on which gal pal to do it with.
Characters designs are pretty basic and uninspired. There’s nothing special about any of them. The girls, at least, come off as mildly attractive but that's all.
Animation is typical from what I’ve come to expect from anything Anime 18 puts out there: bland generic environments and bland characters. My biggest complaint is the lack of detail when it comes to the genitals. The girls all look like they either have a patch of hair and a slim vague slit or no hair and a slim vague slit.
Sex scenes are graphic and violent in most cases—whips and chains, kitchen knives, and creepy crawly bugs and masked henchmen are all elements you will find inside.
In summation, Black Widow is a halfway decent murder/mystery type hentai. There’s really nothing in it to make it stand out from the crowd. The plot’s pretty thin; it’ll only take you about 5-10 minutes to discover who’s behind all of this. It’s not for the faint of heart and it’s certainly not something you want to show your significant other if you want to try and get them to share your interest in hentai.
