The Review!
Haitoku no Shoujyo is the story of a couple of siblings who have some interesting toys, both living and non-living.

For our primary viewing session, we listened to this disc in its original language of Japanese. This is a pretty straightforward stereo mix with nothing going to the rear channels and only some minor directionality across the forward soundstage. Dialogue is nice and clear and we noticed no dropouts or distortions on either track.

The transfer for this volume is pretty decent with the only issues being some minor aliasing and cross coloration that seem to be a staple of the Wide Road shows we’ve seen so far. Colors look good overall without any noticeable over saturation or macroblocking.

All three women get to share the main cover here with the two siblings and their living toy squatting down in front of them. There’s a dog as well, but don’t worry, the dog doesn’t get involved in anything. The back cover gives a full summary of what’s in the story and setting as well as a few animation shots. Some production information and the discs features are also listed here. As with all NuTech releases to date, there’s no insert in this release.

There’s a bit of a load to the main menu as it uses a panning sequence from the show and centers on the bed, which becomes a static piece that the selections are laid over while animation plays next to it. Menus are quick to load afterwards and moving around is quick and easy. The layout is the same as other NuTech discs, so you know what to expect if you’ve seen their releases before.

The only extra included here is a minute long video gallery that shows various stills from the episodes to music.

Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
As the show opens, we’re surprised to see the show titled as #2. Where’s the first one? Hrm.

Anyway, the story of this single OVA episode focuses on two siblings, Shizuka and Yuki. They’ve been assigned a private tutor at school, a young teacher named Ms. Hiroko. Partway into the OVA we’re shown their first meeting, where they all sit and talk at the kids mansion and have a spot of food. It’s not long before Shizuka puts something in Hiroko’s drink and she falls unconscious, only to awaken to being tied to the bed stark naked.

Shizuka and Yuki begin to have their way with Hiroko as they bring her over to their way of thinking and turn her into a plaything of sorts. Going against the grain of hentai storytelling, Hiroko ends up really getting into things and admitting it as things move fast. When it’s revealed that Yuki isn’t a girl but a rather effeminate looking boy, the fun gets even weirder. It’s like the animators had a really hard time deciding which look to give him as he got further undressed and into the action.

With a running time of just under thirty minutes, there’s not much room for plot development or characterization. This one makes it even less important with the two encounters between the trio taking up the majority of the time. This show goes right for the action and just keeps it coming and coming and coming. If you like that sort of thing.
