Raise your hand if you had ever watched something sexually arousing but at the same time repulsive and gross. Now, put down your hand if you're thinking about scat porn. Much better..
Basically, this anime is similar to scat porn. You're disgusted by it. You're aroused by it. You're wondering why they do it. You're wondering why did you even clicked on it when there's hundreds of other videos you could use for the daily "ritual". But at the end of the day, you still can't comprehend it.

Hen Zemi redefines the word "Abnormal"
Quite a refreshing approach from all the cliches in animes you see read more

All I can say is Wow. if you thought Hen Zemi was just about fart jokes and perverted comedy, you were wrong. Somewhere within the comedy lies some insight to the human psyche that really blows one away if you sit and think about it.

The review is after going through 9 of the episodes plus one of the OVA's. Originally, I picked this show up not knowing what I was getting myself into. All I knew is that it featured Hanazawa Kana as one of the main characters and that it was a comedy. When I saw some of the content the show had to read more

Welcome to Hen Zemi where all that is socially unacceptable and downright disgusting or odd can be used for educational purposes. These students are tasked with coming up with reports on these subjects and experiencing them firsthand. For the most part raunchy humor, Zemi doesn't provide much else. However, if this is your cup of tea then there is bound to be one or two laughs in these 10 minute episodes.

If there is one thing that makes this a weird show it would be the characters. The projects they pick out can only be as messed up as the professor and the students doing them. read more

Hen Semi (or Zemi for some) is one of those under-the-radar shows that hardly got the attention they deserved. I mean this show has a hundred times more context and ten times more sex humor than an average anime show and yet very few care about it. That is just sad; the industry is going through hard times and most result to rehashing the same old boring but safe formulas, and this show takes a step forward to be uncommon and not many paid attention to it. Well here I am, I paid attention and I am telling you to throw away your Baka no read more

Anime: Seitokai Yakuindomo
They both focus heavily on sexual humor (Hen Zemi focusing on weirder fetishes though).

Anime: Moyashimon
Both have the "weird" seminar theme going on. The plots are really similar especially with the humor and both are great comedies, you'll understand if you've seen them both. 
reportRecommended by Welshy
Anime: Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt
Both are TV series that are filled with erotic humor that pushes the limits of what can be shown on TV.> 
reportRecommended by NataliaIsMyWaifu
Anime: Genshiken
Both animes are about a character joining a group, and learning about themselves in the process.

Both are very funny, and deal with some of the more extreme aspects of society (extreme fetishes, extreme otaku(ism))

Anime: 30-sai no Hoken Taiiku
First of all - they're both about one's sexual life. They're also very strange and make me think "WTF is happening?". Both of them last for 12 minutes per episode and, finally, they're both from 2011 spring season.
