Hot. Juicy. Teacher. It's titles like this that make me look at my friends in the education world a whole different way.Audio:
For our primary viewing session, we listened to this show in its original language of Japanese. Unfortunately, this is also the only language track on there as no dub was produced for the release. The Japanese track is a decent sounding stereo mix that doesn't have a whole lot of activity going on in terms of directionality but does have a nice full sounding effect overall. Dialogue is clean and clear throughout and we had no problems with dropouts or distortions during regular playback.Video:
Originally released in 2002, the transfer for this OVA is presented in its original full frame aspect ratio. The transfer for this release overall looks really good. During the episode, there's some occasional aliasing where the lines start losing their smoothness and turn jagged but this is pretty minimal. Colors look good and maintain a solid feel even during the dark blacks and blues, cross coloration is pretty much a non-issue and the show is presented with the original opening and ending. At the end of it, a translated section of credits rolls as well.Packaging:
Looking nice and erotic without showing any real skin, or least no more than any magical girl cover to some extent, one of the teachers takes the main cover here with her dress torn and even the hint of chains around her. The artwork is just very attractive and the colors look great in combination with the design. The back cover provides several shots from the show and plenty of nudity. The summary is fairly short but well done while the bottom half is a much cleaned up and nicely laid out technical section and production information piece. No insert is included with this release.Menu:
The main layout utilizes the artwork from the cover in a zoomed in and much brighter manner so that her face is the center. Selections are lined along the left and are quick and easy to navigate while a brief loop of music plays along to the menu. Access times are nice and fast and the layout very simple to navigate as there isn't much here beside the show and the trailers.Extras:
The only included extra is a slideshow of artwork from the show.Content:

A new series from JapanAnime kicks off with Hot Juicy Teacher and it takes the entire school idea and really runs with it. The show is the kind that plays in the school grounds and doesn't really care what it says or does. It just wants to play dirty and really go with it.
The show starts off with the introduction of a small group of school boy thugs who get away with everything since one of their fathers is hugely important in the real world. This allows them to get away with things such as cornering one of the very attractive teachers in the sports equipment shed and with the help of three friends, rape her as much as they want. She can't resist since he goes on about how he'll destroy her and she'll never have anything at all out there. And besides, with the way she was dressing, she was asking for it is how these kids think.
Everything changes when Yuichiro stumbles onto the situation though. This good looking good natured student decides that he has to do what any decent person would do and he rumbles with the guys and they all get bloodied up a bit before some teachers arrive. To Yuichiro's surprise though, when the rich kid said it was Yuichiro raping her and that he was trying to stop him, even the teacher agrees and he finds himself being framed for the rape. So begins his life of switching schools and trying to get past this, but finding it so heavily weighing on his mind that it twists his soul along the way.
Things pick up at the main storyline at a new school where it's just as twisted. There's a group of bullies that mess with the kids. One in particularly, Hiromi, finds himself really abused by them. The group of boys has one girl with them that provides some extra tease, such as when they get Hiromi undressed and held down, she uses two twigs to masturbate him with while she rides his face. This could be good for Hiromi but when she says she hasn't showered in a week, you know why he looks as disgusted as he does. The abuse ends up leading to a situation where the school nurse finds out about it and she tries to help Hiromi, but when she slips they end up grabbing each other inappropriately and that leads to copious amounts of sex between the two.
This isn't the only area that's not up to snuff. Yuichiro's been following around one of the newer teachers at the school who is also the daughter of the principal. She's got the problem of being in the same school as her mother, but she manages to keep things manageable by taking advantage of various students herself and looking to see which teachers are going to be a threat to her. She gets her hooks into Hiromi as well while Yuichiro keeps track of that only to be distracted by another teacher who he knew from a previous school. It's almost like a constant course of sex with this show.
The character designs for this show were something that I was really interested in since I liked the cover art so much and it paid off. The various designs, which pick up nicely after the opening sequence, are nicely detailed and pretty unique from one to the next. The women come across the best but I was glad to see that they changed Yuichiro from a decent looking happy guy before he got framed to someone with a bit of a world weariness " or wariness " to him as he deals with things in this newest school of his. In Summary:
A bit more like what adult anime has been like in the past few years, Hot Juicy Teacher is exactly what the title promises. That does include some brief scatological stuff though that was cringe inducing but only marred one scene in particular. But when you have juicy in the title I'm sort of figuring that it's a given that there will be some. This is a fun little show with a mean streak to it that was enjoyable to watch play out but I'm not sure how well it will carry into future volumes. Nothing good can come of what Yuichiro has planned but at the same time it's hard to blame the guy for it. The series is nicely animated at its start and the designs very pleasing on the eye but the content will appeal to a certain set of adult anime fandom.
