Storyline

Two explorations of the Lolita complex. Sushiaki Karasawa, a young teacher at a Tokyo high school, becomes infatuated with Yoshida Chizuru, a 19-year-old student who appears in a shampoo commercial. She realizes he's attracted to her, so she shows up at his apartment and offers to sleep over. Soon he realizes that the games she plays have just begun. Later, Chizuru meets the new neighbor of her rock star boyfriend, Hiroyuki. The girl is Azumi Yamada, an innocent from the provinces who enrolls in Chizuru's school. This time it's Chizuru who's infatuated. What will Hiroyuki do when he finds out he's being thrown over for Azumi? Can Chizuru save her from Hiroyuki's revenge? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

simply awful
5 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two episodes of the 'vanilla' anime series "Hen", apparently the only 2 episodes made. But judging by the poor animation, the crappy stories and a 'heroine', who's an evil manipulative prick-tease, I'm surprised more than one episode was made. So 2 is WAY more than enough. Yoshida Chizuru is the aforementioned prick tease, she's a stuck up bitch who everyone apparently loves because of her huge tits (well that and she's on a TV commercial. The first episode has her teasing a teacher and spending the night at his place, but not letting anything happen, aside from shaking her tits on his face. It made me wish someone slammed a brick in her head. Then used the brick on me for actually sitting through the whole show. It's crap. The second episode wasn't that much better (because face it, it couldn't be worse), and has to do with this big titted selfish bitch having a lesbian crush with predictable results. The show doesn't have nearly enough nudity to make it even remotely watchable and what it does have is beyond tame. One of the worst anime shows I have ever had the misfortune of watching BAR NONE.

My Grade: F

DVD Extras: Meet the Characters; Sub-titled Behind the scenes; and Trailers for "Sprite", "Garaga", "Detonator Orgun", "Maze", and "the Ping Pong Club"
