Shameless? Try Insatiable!
If there's one very good thing I can point out in this title, it's the art. I think, by far, Doctor Shameless has one of the best (if not the best) I've ever seen in a hentai production. The artwork and animation are crisp and clear. The camera angles used are canny, especially in the first episode where they focus on Dr. Ishida's intense eyes and haughty smirk for dramatic/sinister effect. And can I just say, no matter how hateful Ishida is, he is just so HOT? Even his Japanese seiyuu/voice actor just sounds so masculine. For the guys out there, I think you'd be glad to know that the women are equally as hot, save for the signature MILF, who looks a bit too bland for my tastes.
With animation and art as great-looking as this one, you can, of course, expect excellent hentai scenes. While it's been implied that Ishida is cruel and sadomasochistic, most of the sex shown here borders on the conventional. The only distu rbing parts
- at least for me
- would be when he brings his attention to his patient's anal region. Although some incest haters (which also might include yours truly) might find Ishida's threesome with a mother-daughter tandem quite unacceptable. There are also some toys, gadgets, and medical tools employed, but I guess that's standard hentai fare.
There isn't much to say about the plot. All situations in Doctor Shameless are obviously contrived and at times even so absurd that it's funny. I mean, Ishida tells himself that his approach is so unique, it actually qualified for the Nobel Prize and that he's the only one in Japan who had license to practice it. Riiiiight. If Ishida weren't so hot, I'd despise him. He doesn't really do any doctoring. "Playing doctor" is the more apt phrase to describe his ridiculous medical check-ups. Like for instance, the way he examines urine and his method of forcing a patient to defacate
(not to worry, there are no scatting scenes here) are just stretching things too far. There was actually a point when I questioned the wisdom of his opening his patient's mind into "servicing others". That's not very healthy, is it? I mean, you could get far worse diseases in that kind of activity.
Aside from being such a horny bastard bent on fornication, Ishida is also a gold digger. They just glorified the gigolo and gave him the title of doctor. He reminds me of Professor
of Immoral Study. I guess it doesn't hurt that his women are beautiful as well as loaded.
Overall, I don't really think too highly of Doctor Shameless. But if you're out to relieve yourself of...stress, this would be a good anime to pick up. You can't go wrong with the visuals. And with hentai, who needs story, right? Oh, I almost forgot. You just might be interested to know that Ishida isn't the only one in the hospital with such voracious appetites. One nurse there, whose Ishida's equal when it comes to debauchery, made me laugh when she admitted what most brainless ditzes wouldn't.
