The Review!
Audio:
The audio presentation for this release is done with a single language mix as we get the English track in stereo encoded at 192kbps. With the age and rather general low quality of the actual production itself, the encoding and the mix itself aren’t a surprise nor is the end result. It’s certainly not bad or problematic, but it lacks anything other than throwing the material out the center channel and letting it all hang out there. Dialogue is clean and clear, which is good since many scenes are just stills, and it’s free of problems so you can enjoy the aural experience.

Video:
The transfer for this show is presented in its original full frame aspect ratio. The sixty minute feature is made up of several different shows so there’s a different look and quality of materials to be had here. There’s a mix of traditionally animated material here and some digital animation material as well so there’s obviously differences between the two. The older material looks decent but it has a rougher feel and the backgrounds tend to be noisier. The newer scenes tend to be a lot cleaner and with few problems overall outside of some mild noise during panning sequences. Some cross coloration creeps in as well but is fairly minimal overall, especially in comparison to the line noise when it comes to the older clips. Colors are generally good and there’s a mostly solid feel to the bulk of it. The disparity in the materials is pretty obvious and a little off-putting at times.

Packaging:
The single disc release has a very busy front cover to it with one of the nurses all in bandages along the top half with a hazy look behind her that lets it all draw you in to her eyes. The logo runs below her with a trio of fonts to it that's kind of distracting, but not as much as the trio of shots below it on the hardcore version which has ample nudity from different scenes. There's a lot going on here and little that's really tying it all together so it feels too busy. The back cover is muhc simpler overall that doesn't feel anywhere near as busy where it has a large nurse character along the right that's being abused a bit. The left side has a brief look at what's on the disc and follows it up with lots of shots from the show itself. The softcore side is just like the hardcore but it avoids all of the nudity aspects of it and covers up the girls a bit more.

Extras:
Outside of a brief slideshow, there's nothing to be had here.

Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
Adult Source Media has hit up a new collection of clips in a theme that's very common in the hentai world with nurses. The medical field is one that's been bountiful over the years for hentai and there are things that are definitely familiar here, though I can't pinpoint them exactly with which ones I've seen before. The downside to watching hentai for the past twenty-five years is that it is all starting to blend together. Which in a way is a good thing with clip shows like this since it just shows the scenes themselves and doesn't tax the mind.

Naughty Young Nurses covers a lot of ground across the hour here with a variety of nurses, doctors and patients involved. With nurse shows, there are some very consistent themes to be had here where a lot of the encounters are non-consensual and forced. And involves gadgets as well since there are plenty of those available to the doctors that seem to have quite a lot of power over their nurses. There's even a scene where one of the doctors has such control over a nurse that he gets her to help him with taking another nurse down and putting her under his control. And these doctors have no limits it seems when they have a nurse in their thrall as they use lots of toys, lots of bondage and they don't stop no matter what's said. They know what's right and go with it.

There clips tend to run about seven or eight minutes each so we get a fair number of them here. With these being clips, there's not a lot of consistency in quality of animation but several clips come from one show and they're spread out across it in a way that does tie it together kind of alright. The character designs for most of them are pretty good, though they have a basic hentai budget to them, as the backgrounds are kept very minimal and the actual action is where the money went for the animation. Only one scene comes across as feeling very unlike the others and a lot of that comes from it having a lighter and brighter color palette to it.

In Summary:
Naughty Young Nurses delivers easily on its title. There's an hour of dubbed nurses, who are young, involved in naughty endeavours. Clip theme shows are pretty much all ASM puts out at this point so you know what you're going to get and there's no real issues to be had here. It's a decent put together release with a slick menu and some decent content itself. Some of it will feel familiar but the fact that it's dub only continues to be a problem for me since the English acting kills a lot of it. The animation and scenes themselves are about average at best as nothing really stands out but it's not an insulting set of scenes either. Naughty Young Nurses has an hour of hentai scenes that provides the uniforms, locations and tools that capitalizes well on the title.
