And our teachers are there to help -- but they have special courses of their own in mind! Watch her as she progresses through a grueling day of lessons which leave her dripping wet! Learning the art of self-pleasure as she tackles Masturbation 101. Sex with women can be just as entertaining in Lesbian Linguistics! SM/Bondage class and finally rounds out the day with Sex in History class - where she's drilled over and over again!The Review!
It's school on a Sunday but it's not Sunday School as Nakamura gets some special education.Audio:
For our primary viewing session, we listened to this show in its original language of Japanese. This is also the only language available on this release as no English language version was made for it. The Japanese track is a pretty straightforward stereo mix that that's basically a full sounding piece. Dialogue is decent throughout but it is off pretty much throughout the entire program but it doesn't seem like it's an authoring issue so much as a poorly dubbed/lip flap issue.Video:
Originally released a few years back, the transfer for this series is presented in its original full frame aspect ratio. The animation for the show is much more cartoonish than normal but it's full animated and rather fluid at times. It's not a bad transfer but it's one where the actual enjoyment of it will stem from how you feel about the animation. In some ways it may look cheap but it again comes back to the more cartoonish style it has but it does keep to the anime style better than some other recent shows.Packaging:
I don't know if it's possible to quite do a bad looking school girl cover but with ASM doing the hardcore covers and the soft versions on the reverse side they certainly don't have to worry. The dual image here has one of Nakamura in her full outfit turning to look behind her that's cute and it's set against an image of her top being torn while she's tied up and taking her teachers lesson. The back cover goes continues with the hardcore look Nakamura being taken by the female teacher with a strap on while another has a shot of Nakamura pleasuring herself. The bottom portion has the limited information available regarding the technical aspect and really overplays the running time. No insert is included in this release.Menu:
The menu layout is similar to other releases from this studio in that the background is a simple wash of colored light waving about while the foreground has the shot of Nakamura from the front cover doing the look behind, while the basic menu selections are lined along the left side. Access times are nice and fast and there's little here beyond the show and a few trailers. Since there are no real selections for language other than turning the subtitles on, the discs defaults mirror our players' defaults.Extras:

It's back to school again and we get another stand alone episode that deals with the Japanese educational system. This twenty minute episode puts one particular girl through the paces and ends with an amusing twist that you can just whistle the Twilight Zone theme to, providing you're still awake.
We're introduced to the cute and bouncy Nakamura as she's been forced to come to school on a Sunday for some extra assignments by her teacher. She's given the stack of work and whines about it but he heads out and she gets ready to dig in but before she knows it she falls asleep. She wakes up to the teacher coming back into the room and wondering what work she's talking about as he's there to give her the first lesson of the day, masturbation. This of course shocks Nakamura but she goes along with it because teachers are always right. The second lesson is quickly followed up by having a female teacher come in and use a remote controlled device on Nakamura before she switches to a strap on. Third period has the return of the first teacher and he has her learning oral pleasure. The fourth and final period is S&M which Nakamura at first refuses to participate it but once you get some hot wax on these girls they're all into it.
Over the course of twenty minutes we get the various lessons and Nakamura alternates between being afraid and then caving in to whatever the teacher wants her to do. It's essentially one long sex scene split up in a slightly unconventional way but there's not much new here. Nakamura's character design is nice enough and there's only a bit of repetitive animation to it but it definitely feels like one of those second hand kind of productions or something part of a larger collection as opposed to a standalone piece since there aren't any credits to it or anything about who worked on it in the show itself. In Summary:
School Girl: Special Lesson is another in a recent line of short and fairly amateur feeling adult releases from Adult Source Media that may titillate those new to adult anime but will leave a lot of older fans feeling the cold shoulder. The animation is decent if basic, the designs work but aren't all that memorable and with only a twenty-minute runtime it's very hard to justify picking up for the collection. It's definitely more in the rental mind more than anything else.
