Love it or hate it
14 August 2000 | by (Mesa AZ) – See all my reviews

If you are not the kind of person who likes Japanese animation sex comedies, don't bother to see this. If you do like them, though, then I recommend this video. It's funny and sexy and kind of sweet, too. The heroine, Chizuru, is as big-breasted as they come, so if you hate sexist objectification of women, you won't like this. I, however, live for it, so I loved this video.
