When his mother is taken ill, the irritating Toru is packed off to stay with "relatives" in Tokyo, where he meets the shapely Manami. Immediately smitten, he discovers that this demure girl next door has a hidden side, a second bad-girl personality called Nami who's ready to put out at the drop of a hat.
Ever since the early days of Cream Lemon, the tawdry genre of anime Lolita porn has suggested that inside every underage girl there's a sexually mature adult bursting to get out, if only the right boy comes along with the magic password. You couldn't get much better than Toru-so pathologically shy he can only search for sexual partners among his own family. And he's not the only one-this adaptation of Shinobu Arimura's manga alludes to a victim of childhood abuse, returning to the scene of the crime to face her demons. Blink and you'll miss it: a moment when Manami compares the size of Toru's member to her father's.
Where animation is limited, as it is here, voices have to carry a lot of the emotional weight, but the dubbing crew simply can't be bothered. The end result contains many silent hiatuses as the cast seemingly waits for canned laughter that never comes, and though Deep Blue Fleet-director Takeshi Yamaguchi tries to inject some arty moments (schoolgirls fighting with martial-arts moves based on common sports, waving grasses as lovers talk by a river), this is, like so many others of its ilk, a morally dubious attempt to package human pain as entertainment.
