Title: Balthus - Tia's Radiance
Genre: Adventure
Credits: 1988 Media Station Co. Ltd., Kitty Media

Cover Description: In the village of Le-jeute, all is not well. Over-shadowed by the dark and mysterious factory-city known as Balthus, the inhabitants of the peaceful little village are lured into a life of servitude with the promise of the pleasures that await them. But when the workers realize the truth, it is too late as they are unable to leave the forsaken factory.

In an effort to organize a resistance movement, a small group of fearless workers prepare to wage an attack on the evil factory owner Morlock. Their secret weapon, a robot named Klaattu, sits idle as Eud and Alphonse attempt to escape and warn the rest of the villagers. But Alphonse is lost in the attempt while Eud escapes, only to be found by Alphonse's sister, the beautiful Tia.

Their peace is soon shattered as Morlock comes looking for Eud, and eventually captures him and Tia together. While Eud is thrown in a dungeon, Tia is subjected to Morlock's sexual appetite, only to find out that her brother is dead.

Can Eud and the other resistance workers fight to bring down the evil Morlock? Will Tia be subjected to Morlock's sadistic pleasures for the rest of her life? Find out in this wonderfully drawn and classically animated adventure in a fantasy world of Gilliamesque creations and gothic scenery.

Boy, talk about literal meanings!
I was actually surprised that the artwork sort of reminded me of a Hayao Miyazaki anime. I almost expected a good storyline to go with the raw look, which is Miyazaki's trademark. Don't get me wrong, though, the art is nowhere near any of Miyazaki's works even though they exuded nearly the same feel. Now, is this good or bad?

For what I have expected of a hentai anime, however, Balthus: Tia's Radiance still managed to surprise me. It has the makings of a good, serious anime, one with plot that can survive even if the hentai scenes were to be chopped off. There isn't anything spectacular about the story, but the approach has something quite different to it. There's talk of oppression and rebellion. There's also an inspiring story about two siblings with a significant family history. Then there's the presence of innocent idealism, since the major conflict is resolved through divine intervention (and the light of Tia!).

Unfortunately, there seems to be not enough time for any real developments in either the characters or the general scenario. Everything went by so fast, I hardly had any moment to blink my eyes for fear of missing something juicy. At least, as compensation, the sex addict of a bad guy isn't bad looking. In fact, he's cute and definitely better than the lead male character. Yum yum!

Now if only the hentai scenes could be a little more detailed...
