in the Court
Cover Description: At Aota Academy former pro volleyball ace
Akira Motoura has assumed coaching duties of the academy girl's volleyball
squad, and his goal is to make them the very best volleyball powerhouse
that they can be!
Well, that and to get laid at every possible opportunity. Which for
Coach Motoura, with his bleached gray (!?) hair, shades, hard body and
steady dedication to his girls, is little challenge.
However, when an old rival player shows up as an opposing team's coach
with an ace female player of his own, Coach Motoura's squad realizes
they will need help. Fortunately, help shows up unexpectedly in the
form of a mysterious transfer student with incredible skills...but can
she be coaxed to play for the Aota Academy girl's team? More importantly,
will Coach Motoura be able to seduce her as well?

That full-monty bastard!!!
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you...SPORTS HENTAI! Yes, Hentai
Wonderland has loads seen stories of rape, bondage, tentacle fests,
the occasional half assed fantasy RPG backdrop and even *gasp*
romance every now and then. However, sports hentai is somewhat
new to me. Angels in the Court scored immediate points with me
due to its unique premise. Its subsequent evaluation was only
boosted by a genuinely funny and light-hearted story and dialog
and by excellent and attractive overall visuals. However, Angels
in the Court failed to meet expectations in one department...one
word (or a combo word if you will): SOFTCORE.
Because this is, when all is said and done, anime porn, potential
buyers of Angels in the Court must first understand they will
not be getting a very sexually explicit title. You won't be seeing
all the "tasty" details that uh, well...ah hell, lets
just say the camera forgets to focus between the legs. That said,
for soft-core, the sex content is actually quite good. Vigorous
humping and fondling nicely complement a variety of situations
and attractive female partners. Folks, if you've ever wondered
about the possibilities that those sound proof karaoke singing
rooms present, this hentai will give you a few tantalizing ideas.
Speaking of the women, the character designs in Angels of the
Court consistently rate high. Characters are cleanly drawn, and
attractive right down to the male lead, Coach Motoura. Each of
the players has a distinctive look and personality that, while
perhaps not deep or multifaceted, at least helps with the notion
that they are not there merely for jiggling and moaning. The transfer
student especially has an interesting plight...I'll just say she
needs the proper "motivation" to play to her outstanding
My main character complaint would be with Coach Motoura's sometimes
overboard dedication to getting off, which in some instances put
the team welfare at risk. That and his rather lecherous relationship
with his players bugged me somewhat, but this is after all hentai.
In all truth, it's kinda hard to blame the guy, when he's surrounded
by a team of young (on no!), willing and beautiful girls. Come
to think of it, he actually did try to refuse them...for all of
three seconds, yes, but it was there nonetheless. What a guy!
To sum up my opinion of Angels in the Court, it was an entertaining
romp through the light-hearted side of um...college...girl's volleyball
competition. If you choose to buy it, as long as you are not expecting
explicitly detailed sex, you will more likely than not be satisfied.
And perhaps, like this reviewer, somewhat envious of ol' Coach.
*sigh* Must change career goals...

Worth to watch but not the money
Akira Motoura, the former All-Japan ace, commands the volleyball
team of AOTA Academy. He has a hard time adjusting to the team
members who have many varied characteristics. He believes that
students, these days, develop sexually at an extremely young age
and very quickly. He is fascinated with the girls during the games.
He gets sexually aroused watching them play. He is constantly
having nasty fantasies but he does not regret it, for he is a
man and a man has sexual desires.
This anime did not hit me right. Why? It said in the cover to
be uncensored. Is it? Of course not. If you are willing to spend
$40 to get the 2 DVDs, you will know why. Enough of ranting of
the hentai level and time for me to move on to another aspect.
The leading male character Akira Motoura is a buff looking guy
who got all the female attention in the anime from the very beginning
till the end. This guy has an unending sexual appetite for a coach.
There are 2 leading female character, Nanase and Nao. Nao is the
leader of the team and Nanase is a "good" player that
also works as assistant coach. I shall not deliberate more on
how "good" Nanase in the court.
The voice acting is good. The storyline is basically competing
other volleyball teams for a title. The graphics are good overall.
If you desperately want to watch this title, get a couple of
your friends that like hentai, buy it, and decide who should claim
ownership on this title.
