The Review!
Audio:
The audio presentation for this release is done with a single language mix as we get the Japanese 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 at least two different shows so there’s a different look and quality of materials to be had here. The “Ninja” oriented pieces are pretty decent with some good looking animation at times, fleshed out backgrounds and fairly smooth movements. The college scenes themselves are mostly stills with a few bits of animation to them and they tend to suffer a fair bit under the camera pans as it introduces a lot of jaggies. Some cross coloration creeps in as well but is fairly minimal overall, especially in comparison to the line noise. Colors are generally good, though again more with the “Ninja” sequences, 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:
If there’s an area that ASM is consistent on, it’s great looking covers. This one is another of those as it plays up the appealing character designs just right by placing a string of them along the top that are done in a soft manner that’s quite attractive. The bottom section has one of the girls being taken hard, but much of it is properly obscured. Add in the logo across the middle with a blackboard design and it’s all tied together very nicely. The back cover takes several of the girls in different states of undress and some graphic material with one of them getting lucky, but they all have sultry looks to them that sells the show well, even if none of it is actual animation. The summary is non-existent since it’s just buzzing for the show itself while the remainder is given over to the basic technical bits and some logos. The cover is reversible, though it’s only the back cover that’s really any different, as it removes the graphic sex and adds a few more clothes on to the central character.

Menu:
The menu design is nicely done as it takes two of the characters, one dressed in a school uniform and the other with her top coming off, along the left side. The character artwork is very appealing with its soft design and the color mix. The logo along the top is done blackboard style which is certainly appropriate while the background itself is essentially a CG blur of clouds moving fast I’d guess which works well with the rest of the menu. Navigation is straightforward and easy to use and submenus load quickly and without problem. With this being a monolingual release, player presets aren’t a problem at all.

Extras:
The only extra included in here is a nearly two minute slideshow (animated) of scenes from the feature to some hard rocking music that makes it all go by very fast, though it is a short loop of music.

Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
With Naughty College School Girls, I wasn’t sure what I was going to get with it since the promos for it are basically text pieces that talk up what’s essentially a series of locations, basic acts and that’s about it. It’s the amateur hour of hentai. That’s not bad, but it makes it difficult to really gauge exactly what it is you’re getting. So I was even more unsure once it started up and I saw what seemed like fairly familiar material from one of the Ninja releases that ASM put out a few years ago. As it turns out, this footage serves as bookends and as a transitional piece in the middle for two other lengthier scenes.

The Ninja footage is cute and all as I certainly like the more traditionally animated material, at least in how it looks, and the basic kind of material they put into it here with a couple of quick scenes, nothing too lengthy or detailed. It’s light and fun if a bit creepy, especially with the guys in the full black/grey bodysuits that take advantage of one of the women. It is of course material that I believe we’ve seen before, or I’ve got a huge case of déjà vu because of it, and as it serves as brief material overall for the set, it doesn’t register all that long. Of course, once you get into the main parts of the show, you start to look forward to these segments more because, well, they’re actually animated.

When it comes to the bulk of this hour long release, I have to admit I laughed when I realized what it was. The two main segments of the release are the pieces that we’ve seen as the bonus episodes on older releases from ASM. The first one is the twenty minute or so long gymnastics piece while the second one is the student and tutor episode. These two episodes have been seen before, but they were often given the shaft when it came to actual encoding quality and subtitles. In fact, a large number of them offered in the past weren’t subtitled at all and were done with hard subtitles as well if I recall. Getting them with better quality, at least in terms of encoding, in comparison to when they were bonus episodes is pretty welcome. And since these often weren’t subtitled, getting them in full here with DVD subtitles is quite nice.

Unfortunately, as I’ve noted in the past when talking about them as bonus episodes, these are strange pieces that I haven’t been able to figure out, well, why they exist. They’re often little more than slideshows that feel like they were done with MS Paint several years back. They’re bright, vivid and without much motion that works very well. The opening story involves a gymnast who falls for her coach and the two end up in a relationship. The coach’s wife doesn’t like this so she starts up with the gymnasts’ boyfriend after he sees what his girlfriend is up to. And since she’s been lying about what she really likes when it comes to sex and he knows it, it sets it all up for a big fall come the competition. What’s amusing is that it’s the kind of big fall that you don’t expect as it’s a very public exhibition.

The second story has less to it as it deals with a student who is going to have a less than thrilling summer vacation as he has to deal with a tutor so he can get accepted into college. His girlfriend gives him plenty of incentive, but when she meets the tutor, she becomes quite jealous. And with good reason as the tutor and student fall madly in love because they have such intense sex after getting to the lessons a bit. This one doesn’t feel as cheaply done as the first one and it involves a little bit more, but it still has a very basic feeling about it that’s hard to shake. The character designs are alright, a bit better than the first storyline, and it fleshes things out a little more in terms of backgrounds and locations, but it’s still largely a series of stills with a few bits of motion at times.

In Summary:

Once I realized that this show was basically second string material, bonus material found on previous releases in fact, I was pretty disappointed. I am glad that these pieces finally got some good encoding for them and decent clean subtitles and not hard subtitles, but the actual content itself does very little for me. These were mindnumbing pieces a few years back and they’re just as uninteresting now, especially since it’s often hard to really call it animation. And mixing in footage from the Ninja series really threw me off even more. This release has a great looking package but what’s inside left me uninterested and often checking the time display to see how much more there was. If you liked the bonus episodes and wanted a much cleaner and better looking version, this is a release to get. If you hated them, avoid this one like the plague.
