Confused as to whether to pity the characters or not.
Temptation is like throwing in Xpress Train, Night Shift Nurses, with some Shusaku and Bible Black and setting it to puree. It is another one of those “if you want to see mindless sex, blackmail, and rape” h-animes. The plot is nonexistent and is so typical of regular porn that I was wondering how I managed to finish it.
The art and animation are much like the other newer titles. The sex scenes are very explicitly drawn. All the sounds and sights are associated with wet sex.
Everything is digitally animated, and though this can be pretty, it got boring for me. There wasn't any distinct detail between female characters, so they all look similar. I got confused in one scene where there were two girls that both had lavender hair. I forgot which one was the slave and which one was getting raped.
Ayabe, a professor, gets caught on tape having sex with a student and subsequently gets blackmailed by Kyomoto, the principal of the university, into helping her seduce, violate, and enslave other girls.
The plot baffled me. If you are looking for a substantial story, look elsewhere. Some points to be made: students are violated and then a nurse comes out of nowhere and gets in on the action. Huh? Where the hell did that come from? Some of the scenes from the beginning contained many “flashback” scenes, that were perplexing until the end — even when you’ve watched the entire thing and thought you can piece everything together.
Not much character development at all, though I’ll mention a little about the major characters. The people of Temptation have roles in the story, though they were never much explored or explained. No reasons were made as to why Kyomoto is the person she is. Nothing for why Miku is even helping Ayabe after he violates her. Sakura does have minor development, but still needs to get slapped for being too naïve. A sad attempt that Temptation possibly made for a story. Too many questions left unanswered. On a minor note, Professor Ayabe looks very much like Nariyasu Seta from Love Hina. Sakura reminds me of Misaki from Angelic Layer.
Ayabe is certainly a man with two faces. On one side, Ayabe is a nice apologetic man. On the other side, he’s a man who takes sheer pleasure in violating women.
There are a lot of female characters, this is a listing of the main ones that should be worth mentioning: Miyomoto Miku, a student Ayabe violates, but then comes back to help him violate other students. Hotaru, the girl Ayabe got caught with. She's involved in a scene with a disgusting guy. I cringed at that scene. Sakura, the female lead. Naïve as a newborn kitten, she catches the sweet moments of Ayabe.
Dubbing was fine, though a bit annoying. I watched this in Japanese with no subtitles and that was enough to get me annoyed. Possibly it is because of the premises for this story that got me thinking the way I did, but I really wanted to smack Sakura for crying out her undying affection to Ayabe.
If this hentai sounds interesting, then go for it. Let’s not mention the plot, but the sex scenes are truly something to see if you do go for those situations.
