Cover Description: The girls' dormitory of Shukusei Music
Academy is home to some of the most talented young female musicians
in Japan. But horns aren't the only thing they're skilled at blowing.
In such an elite school, appearances count for everything, but behind
closed doors the sounds of screams, whimpers, and dull moans can
be heard echoing through the halls. The school handy man, Shusaku,
cleans up after the girls and picks up all their dirty secrets,
which he uses to blackmail them into some very un-ladylike private
performances. Shusaku may get paid to clean up the building, but
his true calling is just the opposite- sexually defiling and disgracing
the innocent and high-strung musical maestros.
Shusaku Replay features all of the characters you're familiar with
from the original Shusaku, but presents an entirely new self-contained
story that tightens the ropes on the bondage and dishes out even
more of the domination and degradation you know and love!
The long and winding
I wasn't too thrilled with the prospect of watching Shusaku
Replay simply because I find the original
Shusaku to be a retarded piece of garbage with only a
tidbit of a saving graceand rest assured it wasn't the
So we proceed with Shusaku Replay. The first thing that struck
me was bad English dubbing. I saw Shusaku subtitled, but I
got the dubbed version for Shusaku Replay and it was like
listening to a Mynah bird talking trash. Beyond that, I suffered
through another bout of bathroom fetisheswhich includes
drinking pee and relishing the sight of human feces. How could
I also forget those idiotic school rules that dictate what
color your underwear should be? One must also endure yet another
round of seeing girls not know how to deal with simple blackmails
that aren't even life threatening. They have an excuse for
being so easily manipulated, though, because it's no longer
just one man they are dealing with, unlike with the original
Shusaku. Good excuse. Boy, am I ever so glad that I'm only
a mere spectator. Oh well, whoever said that character design
is such a simple task that everybody could do without having
the aptitude for it?
At least it has better art this time, and also a little more
detailed on the hentai scenes that now require acrobatic skills
on the part of the players.
One last word: I'd like to give women like these a piece
of advise, if they are unfortunate enough to exist like this
in misery. When a guy forces you to give him a blowjob, go
along until you've touched his miserable prick. Then, use
both your hands and twist separate ways. If that isn't enough,
position your forefingers and index fingers in a lever-like
stance at the side of his eyes (near the temple), apply a
bit of pressure and proceed to pop out his eyeballs. I doubt
he'd recover fast enough to keep you from destroying his blackmail
materials and taking care of his fornicating ass. Just a thought

The More Things Change...
Shusaku Replay is the sequel to Shusaku,
as you likely figured out. However, it doesn't take place
after the first one. Instead, it is an independent story starring
the same characters. Somehow, the story manages to be even
more silly and contrived and the sex manages to be even more
well-depicted. Before I go on, I have a question: Why must
story and sex be mutually exclusive? I've always wondered
That out of the way, I certainly liked Shusaku Replay much
more than the original. The act of defecation has taken a
well-deserved back seat (Though there are still some instances
involving enemas... And this one shot of the teacher's...),
in favor of showing penetration and urine as a tool of domination
(I'll admit to being neutral about the latter, but the former
is welcome). The one thing that struck me was the attitudes
of the women in the later portions of the series. Whereas
the first one had the girls as helpless victims, this new
series has all but two of them becoming willing, eager slave
girls by the middle of the third volume of four. As unrealistic
as this is, I'm not complaining, as the sex is still good.
The animation quality has risen from the first one considerably,
again raising the question of why these people don't do non-pornographic
animation. This sort of effort is rare in anime period, and
to see it poured into a hentai presentation is a good thing.
I would hope that companies like Gainax would learn from this
example and pour their hearts out into mainstream releases
the way this series' animators have.
As much as the visuals have improved, the sounds are generally
the same. The sex in some spots could be a little squishier,
considering how wet the ladies get, and the sounds of flesh
slapping together aren't really noticeable, but the sound
effects seem to be pretty good besides. As is to be expected,
the Japanese vocal track is far superior to the English one,
which features mostly deadpan vocals. NuTech needs to resolve
this as soon as possible, as it's starting to get offensive.
In the end, what you have is a top-notch hentai for those
into domination/submission themes. Yes, the plot - especially
the ending - is silly as all get out, but that's not what
people will be seeing this for.
