I promise to never be cruel to nice guys...
Here we go again with the cheap CG effects and animation.
It feels like we're back in the early days of anime where
production teams on a tight budget resort to repetitive frames,
only this time it's digital so it's not just repetitive frames
that bombard your screen anymore. There's also a lot of graphic
manipulation involved wherein they just change the color of
one girl's panties, or swap one man's face for another and
make "new" scenes out of them. Ah, but it's hentai
and it has sex. Plenty of it. And it sells. So what does it
matter how haphazardly put together this thing is, right?
The art is okay. It's shiny and pretty, much like the other
titles that are recently being released since 2001. I have
a problem with the penises, though. I mean, I've seen neon
pink, magenta, Chinese red
but it's the first time I've
seen brick red. These rather thick appendages are so dark
against the pale skin of the male characters that one can't
help but chuckle in unconcealed mirth.
Being faithful to the latest trend in hentai animeespecially
the ones released by VanillaKorashime (Punishment) features
no-holds-barred non-stop fornication, with a little bit of
help from a few metallic instruments. Ouch. My DVD player's
fast forward button has once again been very useful. Many
of these scenes looked so painful, that even when I totally
despised the four bitches who made fun of the mild-mannered
Kayama, I still couldn't bear to watch their private parts
be viciously poked by various forms of cold hard metal. Other
things to expect are the usual: oral sex, anal sex, hardcore
lesbian action, and bondage.
Korashime's story is rather simple, but I believe it is well
executed. There are no major twists or anything totally unexpected.
However, you do get treated to a few abstractions like the
ones that symbolize the goins-on in Kayama's mind while he
was losing control of himself. I find myself sympathizing
with Kayama, which probably means that character development
was done rather nicely for a low-budget hentai fare like this.
He starts out really gullible and sweet, wandering off with
that catatonic stance. His transformation from nearly innocent
to extremely sadistic is scary...to say the least. Makes me
think twice about committing a horrible misdeed. Then again,
I can't blame him. The girls who wanted to destroy him weren't
little miss innocents themselves, though they would like to
There is a bit of romance in the form of a girl named Miki,
whose older sister Maki is the brains behind Kayama's ruination.
I almost imagined that Miki would be the one to lure the professor
back to sanity. Then again, like what we have come to assume
from titles like these, there really isn't any happy ending.
