It's immoral, I tell you!
"Two immature fruits" sprouts the strap line to
Immoral Sisters. Uh huh, sounds about right...
Immoral Sisters is a slick-looking Pink Pineapple show, brought
to the west by those folks at NuTech, one 30-minute episode
per disc. Made in 2000, the show looks very nice and features
some gorgeous artwork. As, in fact, do the front covers, each
featuring the two sisters in various semi-erotic poses, surrounded
by the telling imagery of falling rose petals. They look lovely
and are marred only by NuTech's insistence on the adult warnings
and voice actress photographs (ick).
So, the show itself? Well, if you're a fan of exploitative
blackmail then you'll love this. Plot-wise Immoral Sisters
is wafer thin - an attractive woman, Yukie, is involved in
a road accident and has to make an improbably large settlement
to the other party, Taketo. Of course, she is unable to afford
the payment and so Taketo decides that she'll pay another
way. I'll leave the rest to your imagination. But it wouldn't
be any real fun if there weren't any young, virginal girls
involved would there?! Yukie's stepdaughters Rumi and Tomoko
must also bear their mother's burden.
I really have a problem with shows like Immoral sisters -
especially when younger sister Tomoko is portrayed so young
and ESPECIALLY when everybody ends up enjoying being abused.
Maybe I'd be more offended if Immoral Sisters wasn't so damn
funny (unintentionally) at times. The scene with the four
female characters had me in fits, as did the two 'telephone
scenes' (you'll know what I'm talking about when you see them).
It's worth noting that Immoral Sisters is as close to total
pornography I've seen. Rarely have I seen any hentai with
such frequent and long sex scenes and with such little plot
development. Very explicit too, though there are a couple
of odd moments involving underwear. To its credit there isn't
any bondage or torture, which elicited a sigh of relief from
yours truly. At the end of the day, Immoral Sisters is harmless
fluff but it treads a fine line.
DVD presentation is again impressive from NuTech with this
3-disc boxed set. Being such a recent show the artwork is
gorgeous and video is crisp. English voice acting is fair,
even though Holly Hollywood seems really, really bored as
Rumi. Also included are some photo galleries and a ton of
previews on the reverse side of the disc. Unfortunately the
same material is on each of the three discs.
I find it hard to recommend Immoral Sisters because it's
just so dumb and ultimately shallow. However, if you fancy
a laugh and some decently animated H-scenes, you could do
a lot worse.
