It wasn't until I decided to watch this again for the revision
of my HN write-up, that I realized my neighbors must've been
wondering what the racket was all about. Two words: Noise
pollution. You would need to adjust your volume to the lowest
possible state because the women of Twisted Tales would scream
endlessly in theiryou won't believe thismonotonous
voices. I'm actually surprised that these voice "actresses"
could go one decibel higher and still sound like they were
reading the nutritional facts on a cereal box. I would've
gladly switched to English subtitles and then mute the darned
thing, but the problem is I have the VHS, not the DVD.
Twisted Tales of Tokyo features four episodes: The Affair,
which is a short about a young girl and her elderly lover;
Lust in Space, about some female characters who are doing
something with some alienshard to figure out what they
were doing as the ear-piercing yelling overpowered the dialogues;
S'Extra Credit, revolves around a teacher and her forbidden
affairs with her students; and The Naughty Professor,
another teacher-student story, this time steeped in S&M.
Three things all of the episodes have in common are (1) the
noise, (2) the next to zero animationmostly painfully
evident in Lust in Spaceand (3) the average artwork.
All stories in Twisted Tales don't have any coherent plotlines,
save for the last, so let me just tell you my take on it.
The Naughty Professor is a deceiving title. In fact,
I had nothing but pity for the professor because she is not
only goody-goody, she also doesn't have a backbone. All the
sexually explicit actvities she's involved in aren't actually
done of her own accord, but are in fact forced on her by a
student. Maybe she is a masochist, but it's only because of
her own weakness in standing up to somebody who should have
been beneath her authority. And then here's another thing
that boggles the mind. The student who bullies her suddenly
does a 180-degree turn near the end, which I think is done
all-too-quickly to be consistent.
As for the rest of the package, let's just say they're probably
front act for The Naughty Professor. Hentai scenarios
to expect are the usuallesbian loving, anal fucking,
blow jobs, tentacle fests etc. The one thing unusual I noticed
was the pee-drinking scene in The Affair. Now that's
Overall, I think Twisted Tales of Tokyo is just a notch better
than Co-Ed Affairs,
and only because it made my husband and I laugh at its sheer
inanity. I mean, how can you listen to a woman say, "You're
so mean to me, Hino!" and then at the same breath, opens
her pussy and exclaim, "Okay, how about this?" It
wouldn't have been so funny if she weren't looking so pathetic.
Other than that amusing instance, I think this particular
title is full of shit. They should thank Co-Ed Affair's existence.
At least they weren't the worst in this genre.
