Middle of the road., 6 April 2005
Author: Ky-D from Hawaii, USA

Yet another OK J-soft core flick. Arguably a step up from some of the previous entries in the "Angel Guts" series, it still never rises above it's own conventions.

A young man develops a crush on a girl in a porn magazine, who also happens to live near by. She sets out on a quest to meet her just as she is experiencing some stiff sex related life issues. She seems to be a nymph who craves regular sexual contact, but is unable to ever reach a real physical or emotional satisfaction from her encounters. Will they find happiness?

That's really all the story there is. It's a very run-of-the-mill sexual awakening story, one that film makers never seem to get tired of telling, no matter how trite it has become. Giving credit where it's do, there are a few interesting set pieces; most notably what a girl decides to do with an egg, a prophylactic and few pencils while pleasuring herself. Inspired moments like that will doubtlessly raise a few eyebrows, even as the filming ad-hears to the strict conventions of a Japanese sex flick (as in 'chest/rump' shots only).

All told, it is sexier than many similar films, but never goes as far as the greats like "In the Realm of Senses".
