Uncut! Includes the deleted scenes from the first Night Shift Nurses!
The Night Shift Nurses are back and naughtier than ever in this raunchily revealing adventure! On a forbidden hospital ward, the head doctor performs madly erotic experiments, stripping the nursing staff of their uniforms, inhibitions and self-control... until even he is shocked by what he uncovers! The Review!
For our primary viewing session, we listened to this disc in its original language of Japanese. Though a recent show, it features a pretty basic sound stereo mix with little in the way of directionality across the forward soundstage. There was no noticeable dropouts or distortions during playback though.Video:
With this release originally coming out in 2001, the transfer here is quite good. Colors look good, nice and solid without any over saturation. Aliasing is pretty minimal, especially compared to the previous volume which had a lot of problems during panning sequences. And unlike the first volume of the series, this one is fully uncut so there’s no issues with missing footage.Packaging:
Using a style that looks almost like manga, the central image is the two nurses at the center of attention in these episodes all dolled up and showing off their assets while you have the good doctor in the shadowy purple background. The tagline makes me cringe, “Just when you thought you’d seen it all,” mostly because I wish I hadn’t seen all of this! The back cover provides a few choice shots of animation and a simple summary of what to expect for a story. The discs features and technical information is listed clearly here as well. The reverse side of the clear keepcase has the chapter listings, bilingual credits and basic production credits for both sides. The right panel provides a nice big piece of black and white artwork.Menu:
The main menu is a very disturbing piece, a reminder of what happens if you apparently let someone go wild. With the visuals of a package tossed onto a table and photos falling out showing scenes from the series, it’s all done to an English voice over. Additionally, you hear various choice “sounds”, from the sploosh sploosh to pheeet kind. And the menu transitions…. My god, the menu transitions of a giant purple dildo waving across the screen…Extras:
There’s a surprising number of extras in this release. The first is the cut scenes from the first volume are presented here so that you finally get to see what was missed. Whether that’s good or bad is entirely dependent on you. A section of storyboards shows just what went into the basic design of the show and there’s also an art and sketch gallery that showcase some, um, interesting pieces.Content:

I swear that watching this DVD is proof positive that I go above and beyond the call of duty in regards to this site.
Night Shift Nurses was a release last year that raised the ire of fans who didn’t want their hentai cut. Bowing to the pressure, or just being plain sadistic, the folks at CPM relented and have provided this release completely uncut. The result is that I know how the ability to say, “I’ve seen worse” when shown anything disgusting.
The story continues from the last volume, and we have the fine Dr. Harasaka continuing his work in the Special Ward, far away from prying eyes. He’s currently checking out some of the new nurse help and ends up finding one of them up a tree while out taking his lunch break. While getting a nice peek at her undies, she ends up falling out of the tree and onto him. He’s surprised and plays the bothered person well, but she just insults him and calls him a pervert and heads off, not believing he’s actually a doctor.
The situation changes later on as he finds out that her sister is actually a patient in the cardiac unit, and his mind begins to turn as he can now use this to bring her under his control. He does this fairly quickly by getting her attention saying he may be able to help her sister, and then moves to dominating her mentally and humiliating her physically. She fights against all of it for some time, until she finds out that he knows the two sisters aren’t related. The revelation would likely kill her sister, so she finds herself falling under his grasp. And the photo’s don’t hurt either.
For the duration of the show, and with the addition of another girl later on that he’s dominated in the past, Remi finds herself going into worlds she never imagined. Hell, things I never imagined. Or wish I saw. There is a hefty amount of scatological
scenes throughout. There are a lot of points during which I simply cringed and shook my head. But again and again, it gets taken so far (but still within reality) that you can’t help but laughing. It’s disturbing and hilarious at the same time. Or at least, I’ll plead that I’m using humor as a defense.
I will never look at an egg the same way again.
For those who enjoy this series, you’ll enjoy this release quite a bit. There’s lots to the show itself, the transfer is good and it’s completely uncut. For everyone else, well, I’d only recommend watching it if you can get it into a good sized party and have a lot of people around checking it out. It’s really a crowd show, to see how everyone reacts to each display of debauchery.
My god though… the eggs… the eggs!
