SynopsisAt the academy Miami Takashi attends, higher education has sunk to the lowest levels of depravity, with armed hall monitors, teachers who wear masks to hide their identities and special detention sessions in a torture chamber beneath the gym! It's a curriculum designed to chew up sweet young things, and poor Miami's been voted "Least Likely to Survive" in her class! Is there no hope? Can no one save her? Enter Kekko Kamen, the most outrageous superheroine ever! Clad in a red mask, red boots and nothing else, she is the supreme protector of innocents like Miami. Armed with her trusty nunchaku and a body that just won't quit, she'll make chopped pork out of the swine who run this school from hell! But who is she really? The only one who knows for sure is creator Go Nagai and he's not giving anything away... except lots of free peeks at Kekko Kamen's magnificent physique!

Rampant nudity? Superheroes? Nazis? The Big Toenail of Satan? If any of this sounds exciting, then Kekko Kamen is likely the series you've been waiting your whole life to see.
Absurd is the first thing that comes to mind. Don't be fooled into thinking of this as a bad thing though. Kekko Kamen is the type of series that works because of its absurdity. The humor is very well executed and makes the show into something worth watching. It is a bit of a one trick pony with each episode revolving around a different "Punishment Director" finding a way to strip students naked as punishment. However, the short length of the series doesn't allow for things to truly become tiresome and repetitive.
If you've ever seen a Go Nagai show, you know what to expect in this department. Characters are attractively designed and backgrounds are sufficiently detailed. Great attention is paid to the abundance of naked bodies and nothing ever seems out of proportion. The animation quality may be a little below par, but it's nothing that makes you take notice of it as being particularly poor.
The background music is pretty generic and forgettable. Kekko Kamen's theme song is also rather bland musically, but the over-the-top hilarious lyrics make up for that. The same must also be said about the ending theme "Morodashi Heroine Kekko Kamen (Naked Heroine Kekko Kamen)." Brilliant writing. Sound effects are put to good use in battle as well as for comedic effect. As far as voice acting goes, the Japanese cast does a great job. Jokes are delivered well and in the case of certain characters, every sound made is side splitting. The dub actors change around a few too many lines, but overall they created a solid track as well.
Mayumi is the star here, but really doesn't have much personality aside from being a below-average student. Kekko Kamen is well done as the mysterious heroine. A naked superhero who delivers lines such as "nobody knows my face, but everybody knows my body" is hard to erase from your memories. The Principal Toenail of Satan. This guy is a master of perversion. The show is worth viewing for his involvement alone. Each episode's "Punishment Director" is also unique and I enjoyed watching them demonstrate their special techniques. There obviously isn't much character development to be found here, and if that is honestly what you're expecting from something like this...I don't know what to tell you.
I found myself laughing out at loud at countless scenes especially when characters were using one of their ridiculous techniques (OPEN THIGHS JUMP!). The rewatch value on something like this probably isn't very high though.
While this OVA is by no means a masterpiece, it is definitely worth a look. Its short length of four 22-minute episodes will surely provide a fun and memorable diversion from your standard anime.

“I hide my face but expose all else.”
Kekko Kamen battles the Big Toenail of Satan and his troupe of disciplinarians who torment the students of Spartan Institute of Higher Education. Each episode, Kamen rescues the same female student who is naked and bound. Did I mention Kekko Kamen is naked excepting a mask?
This is obviously a parody of overpowered superheroes, but includes hentai devices such as tentacles and whips. The OVA is an excuse to show tits and recite bad sexual puns, but is amusing nonetheless.
