I think I fell in love...
...with Toyama no Benbei! Seriously, I can't blame
all those starry-eyed girls inside his company. They look
at him and sigh and wish he would give them the time of the
day. Well, he can, actually...if you know what to give him.
Goodness! I have lots of those on my shelf, and I would definitely
not mind if he does try to have his way with me.
Anyhow, let's bring some focus on the collection, so you'd know
what I'm raving about. Whenever somebody gets into trouble
in the big bad corporate world, they call on Toyama no Benbei.
He rapes cold-hearted, calculating vixens for a price. What
that price is, is a big secret. Whatever it is that you ask
for him to do, he'll do it, but he's just so darned good he'd
go beyond your instructions and ultimately exceed your expectations.
Moving on, I realize I had forgotten to discuss the first
episode. It's actually about Mr. Songwriter who takes advantage
of young, virginal girls while promising them success in show
business. Cretinous piece of sh*t, I know, but he gets his
in the most hilarious ways possible.
The artwork and animation is pretty good for hentai. There
is a soap-operatic type of flavor that you can actually sink
your paws into. The silly situations aren't as irritating
as those of Countdown
Continued, as a matter of fact, U-Jin brand just puts
enough sauce in its dish to delight the sensitive hentai palate.
I sincerely hope for a new volume of its kind because these
are the types of h-anime that doesn't elude my memory.
UPDATE (June 3, 2005): Take note that I wrote the above review in the year 2001. This anime does not have the kind of sex you'd expect from a typical digitally rendered hentai title. See my ecchi rating below. It says "5". Even though many people do not appreciate U-Jin's humor these days (I'm currently peering at Amazon.com reviews), his works are still considered classics by many veteran hentai/anime fans.
