Synopsis

Review

... or just plain outrageous practices. The first patient is a man who has no problems getting an erection, but has problems ... er, finishing up. The solution? Dress him up in women's lingerie and practice heavy S&M on him. (And I'll be damned if it actually worked too.) Then, there's the man who is so handsome, women didn't care that his bed practices were less than stellar. His temporary solution? Dress like a superhero (with face concealing mask and go heavy on the role playing.) The solution? Something about facial expressions, I believe. The rather extreme preposterousness of the situation was kinda throwing me off at that point. And don't get me started at the mental sex duel.

The art was disturbingly similar to that of Battle Can-Can, though the women were perhaps a tad exaggerated physically speaking. Dr. Ogenki himself is marvelously weird, including his penis that, for some reason, has a face identical to his own, mustache and all. Also, whenever this title feels like it, it fills up the screen with dancing penis-people, figuratives and symbolisms -- like Dr. Ogenki diving at a woman, his penis changing into a rocket as he descends -- and sudden soliloquies or profound statements at the most inopportune moments, always about sex in some way.

Yes, the sheer craziness this title provides is staggering.

Now, the artwork and the animation is nothing to shout about. Like I said, the people here are rather strangely proportioned, in particular the girls, whose cup size would give any girl in Psychic Academy inferiority complexes, and all of them animated rather badly. The metaphors and the interludes (dancing penises, remember?), seems to have gotten the most of the budget.

The English voices are actually very good, this being a rather cheesy and weird hentai title. And it's a testimony to the actors that they managed to read their lines and keep a straight face, lines that I can't repeat here for reasons that should be blindingly obvious. Sure, they may overact, but that's half the fun.

And it is a fun title, despite the rather juvenile contents. The sheer outrageousness of the plot (if you can call this a plot) constantly reminds you not to take anything seriously at all. If you want cerebral stuff, you won't find it here. If you want anime that suits the whole family, you will definitely be better off looking elsewhere. But if you find rude, crude, and absolutely hilarious problems solved through methods so insane that they make you shake with laughter, Dr. Ogenki and his uber-voluptuous nurse can help you with that.

So says his talking penis.

Remove one star, or perhaps even two, depending on how much you dislike crude and sexual humor.Stig Høgset

Recommended Audience: Absolutely not for kids. The sex is explicit, despite often being interrupted by the aforementioned dancing penises or grandiose speeches or whatever craziness the title decides to throw at you when you don't really expect it to do so.
