Watch out for Mr. Mary Poppins
For the newly optimized Hentai Neko and this revised write-up,
I had to sufferagaingoing through a video that
was so forgettable, I only remembered it for the hot blonde
best buddy. I think this guy was the precedent for the signature
blonde dudes that many male viewers complain about in newer
hentai features. But we'll talk about that later.
First things first, for a mid 90's anime, this isn't too
bad. In fact, the artwork and animation are still comparable
to recent "digitally re-mastered" titles out there.
The hentai details are at par with the latest releases, but
the love scenes are pretty much conventionalnothing
to cringe or cry about. Since I watched the VHS and am not
aware of any changes they made in the DVD, I could honestly
say that the English dubbing is one of the worst I have ever
encountered, both for Keisuke and his best friend Toshiya.
Keisuke sounds like his balls are being vice-gripped the entire
time. Even my gay best friend sounds straighter than he does.
Toshiya, on the other hand, sounds like a member of the Teenage
Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Characterization can use some improvements. I remember hating
the lead so much that I lamented in my original opinion, "Oh,
no! Not another plain-faced insensitive wimp with a girlie
voice! He would have been a better character if he had a spine,
but he's a user. He can't survive without his friends, whom
he takes for granted and treat like shit. What makes it all
the more confusing is that girls are throwing themselves all
over him. What planet does this guy exist in anyway?"
The women in TriAngle remind me of a bishoujo game gone bad.
You have your typical big-breasted secret admirer (though
personally, I don't see what she sees in Keisuke), a tomboyish
childhood best friend, an annoyingly perfect wet-dream girl,
and then there's a nurse. The nurse is a detour from your
usual plotline, an excuse for people to drool over more animated
Ah, and there's the hunky Toshiya. He's blonde. Handsome.
Tall. Smooth. Good Confidante. Gentleman. Read: NOT clueless...
He should have been the main protagonist of TriAngle. In fact,
I finished the entire tape only because of him. That, and
the fact that he doesn't hide anything (he he) during lovemaking
