Cover Description: Takayasu Higashino is private detective
with plenty of expert skills above and beyond mundane investigations.
His knowledge of guns is second to none, his martial arts skills are
world-class, and his special interrogation techniques are guaranteed
to elicit a confession from any female suspect.
When Takayasu rescues the beautiful Ayane from a rape, he is drawn
into a dangerous game of intrigue and seduction. He goes under cover
and under the covers to sneak into Ayane's mansion, where she has been
imprisoned by her family's sex-crazed bodyguards. Before reaching her,
however, Takayasu must not only out-smart Ayane's devilish uncle and
his gang of servants, but also her seductive aunt, Kiyoe. This 'house-mistress'
definitely has her own plans to distract the heroic detective, and it
will take all of his special skills to turn the tables on her.
Read the cover...
The first thing that struck me was that the hair color of the
women are too bright, especially Ayane's hair which was near neon
green. Yecch! I hate green, especially eye-blinding tones of this
color. This alone already hints at what kind of artwork is in
store for the viewers. The women, in particular, aren't even close
to being pretty. Never mind the men; H artists don't really pay
that much attention to them anyway. If you notice, almost all
h-anime lead males look the same. In Bondage House, however, Takayasu
had a different look to him. He has some cute angles, but this
isn't noticeable at first. There was even one particular angle
where he looked similar to Xenogears' Citan Uzuki. The bonus point
here is that the guy has brains. Now that is something refreshing.
The plot, on the other hand, is simplistic. Just read the
cover and you've got your whole story, with a little twist.
The house that the title is referring to has symbolic meaning,
though. It's a house of greed, where the inhabitants' value
only money and whose friends are defined by the faces of people
on dollar billsdefinitely not the kind of creatures
anybody should respect, or even associate themselves with,
lest you be bitten while your back is turned.
For those who are more focused on the sexual aspect of this anime,
the title can also be taken in the literal context. The ecchi
scenes are very graphic; so expect to see a lot of fornication
