Yuri Anime: Shoujo Sect OAV 3

November 27th, 2008

Here we are, at the final OAV of the Shoujo sect anime. And compared with the last two volumes, it was way closer to the manga. But….

Okay, so, Ma-ya and Shinobu have their little moment, and Shinobu is molested by the evil sempai. That situation was changed around a bit, but the rewrite didn’t kill the scene particularly. Momoko’s reaction was modified, for the worse, I think. The fire extinguisher wasn’t just an expression of violence – it was an absolute expression of just how deeply Momoko felt about Sempai’s attack on Shinobu.

The end too was rewritten slightly. Instead of Momoko moving away, and Shinobu and she having a reunion after four months, we harken back to the their first meeting on the playground and their first kiss (which had also been changed from the manga.) This leads into the final sex scene for the series.

And that, I’m sorry to say is where this series is a complete turkey. Porn, unless I’m mistaken, is meant to be sexually titillating. Listening to the voice actresses suck and slurp and lick so absurdly in this volume was absolutely laughable, and a little nauseating. I get it, I do. Sounds have to be exaggerated for effect, but uh…no. A thousand times, no. When I turned the sound off, the sex scenes weren’t that bad, but when I offered an earphone to the wife for a moment she said, “Eww?!” and made the same scrunchy face I myself wore. Each to their own, and all, but for me, the best part of the sex in this anime was that each scene was short, due to time constraints.

What did you think of this series?

When the sex in a piece of porn is the least good thing, you know you’re watching a real turkey.

And speaking of turkey – in the spirit of the Thanksgiving, I would like to express my thanks to all of you, my readers, fans, Okazu heroes and superheroes! I couldn’t do it without you!

    I thought the dialogue (especially during the sex scenes) was the funniest stuff I remember observing in anime in a long time. What Shuojo Sect lacks in quality (a lot), it makes up for in the amusement department. The first scene in the “reflection room” was particularly memorable..

    Were the post high school (ie, the best part) of the manga cut as well? That is a shame. It does seem weird how anyone can actually ‘mess up’ porn. Surely the only people who can do that are those without any empathy at all.

    i think this anime is very good i hop they make shoujo sect tv anime without sex just romantic

  5. @Anonymous – Since the manga is also porn, I think it’s *very* unlikely that it will be made into a non-porn TV anime.

    @Mara – Yes the last chapter with Shinobu at work was cut completely.

    At the scene change from carpet munching to burger munching I almost fell off the chair. And, yes, the sound effects were to die for.

    Fate/Stay Night was based on a porn game, wasn’t it?

    Well, the way the plot for Fate/stay night was constructed made sure you can still tell the same story without the sex scenes (there’s a reason why there’s a PS2 port of the visual novel).

    On the other hand Shoujo Sect is purely hentai, and most of the plot does involve around some explicit Yuri scene.

    Now if there’s one Yuri manga series that could possibly become an anime TV series but walk a teetering line of hentai and ecchi, Gokujou Drops has potential of reeling in Japanese otaku fanboys (in spite the fact that manga is aimed towards girls, bwahaha).

  9. I would say that Gokujou Drops is more of a Yuri Hime S story and therefore, aimed towards the male Yuri fan.

    Als a series I don’t see being made into an anime at all. Without the sexual harrassment, there’s basically no story.

    Sorry but despite how it looks like, Gokujou Drops is aimed towards a female audience. This is stated in the authors website:
