An idol group called "Live un veil" has been formed. The members are Nagisa, Nanami and Kaede, and a tour with fans to a southern island has been announced. All TVs and magazines pick it up and a lot of fans apply for it. The main character is Ryou. One day, he receives a parcel, which includes a film, an envelope and some erotic swimsuits for girls. "What is it!?" He opens the envelope, and finds a ticket to the tour and a letter. It says, "If you take a photo using this film, their libido will become uncontrollable...." "Does this mean take a photo of the idols and make them wear these erotic swimsuits?" But he is more interested in taking part in the tour because he also applied for it. He doesn't care if the film is fake or not. "Great! I'll spend a happy time with them!" Like this, he participates in the tour...
*Warning: This is a hentai title review. It features graphic language.
Produced by T-Rex (After Class Lesson, Fault) and based on the eroge made by renowned artist Kohaku Sumeragi (The Hills Have Size, Rensa Byouto).
Bi-chiku Beach’s qualities overshadow its flaws. It is a short and at times redundant title but its great art, expert shading, nice female cast and fantasy-friendly plot more than make up for it.
A bunch of lucky fans get to spend a week taking pictures of their favorite gravure idols on a small, tropical island. One of the fans, Ryou, receives a mysterious camera that turns its models into nymphos, and
you can guess the rest. Erotic photo shoots, stripping and quality time ensues. The whole plot is exposed within the first minute and what follows are almost non-stop sex scenes.
Being only one episode-long and featuring not much in terms of plot, Bi-chiku Beach is aimed at being enjoyed as pure H material. The premise sets a no holds barred, any-fantasy-goes kind of mood, which, combined to the relaxing tropical setting, should help the viewers immerse themselves in the movie and have a good time.
Art is definitely above-average even though it looks simple at first glance. Curvy lines are abundant and up to 4 shades per color are given proper care in every single frame. I’d say the shading succeeds expertly at helping depict curves and bumps.
Most of what you’ll see as background images is a blue sky, sand and a few palm trees.
Animation quality varies. At its subtler it is fairly realistic: the girls shiver, blink and sigh, and every frame is well drawn. A few other scenes feature average movement quality and fluidity, especially during penetration acts.
The voice acting was okay. Nothing was really noteworthy about it, which is positive I guess. At least the girls’ voices weren’t annoying or too loud. Sound effects are also very subtle. I found that the other features of the movie drew my attention a lot more.
The girls’ beauty and the erotic way they are depicted is one of the highlights of this title. They are a combination of sexy and cute, truthful to the original artist’s style, and their physical appearances are nicely varied. They all have big, but not exaggerated breasts for their size (that is, according to hentai standards). The especially well-drawn nipples poke through the tight bathing suits and the great shading emphasizes curves very well, such as the mounds of Venus and butts. Facial expressions are cute and lovely and the girls are often shown blushing subtly and covered in sweat.
Kaede is the middle-sized one, with black hair, dreamy purple eyes and generous curves. She doesn’t have any really striking feature but is still very pretty to look at. She wears a blue swimsuit reminiscent of typical high school ones.
Nagisa is the oldest, tallest girl and has the biggest curves. Her flowing blond hair and gentle nature are nicely contrasted by her willingness to exhibit, heavy breathing and sexy moans during lovemaking.
Nanami is the younger and more slender one but still has big boobs. Her pink hair tied in side tails and orange eyes are a bit flashy but suit her well and she gets to wear the skimpiest swimsuit.
There is no character development and the girls don’t seem to have much of a personality, but considering the aim of this title I didn’t think of that as being flaws. If I were offered the chance to sleep with a nympho idol for a whole week on a deserted island, I’d probably have that single thing in mind too.
The genitals, nipples and other curves, when covered by swimsuits, are impressively well drawn. You could simply change the color of the swimsuits to a skin tone and wouldn’t be able to tell the girls aren’t bare-naked. The censorship, average in amount, does impair enjoyment a little but you can still make out some of the lines in close-up shots, something that I believe is rare in censored H titles and much appreciated. Sex scenes end with simultaneous climax.
Despite being embarrassed, the girls are consensual and enjoy their time. Ryou comes off as a bit of a jerk because of his constant grin and salacious comments, but he still focuses on giving pleasure to the girls and treats them with respect. A proper way of saying it would be that this guy adds a little bad boy edge to his very decent attitude.
There are 4 sex scenes and they feature:
1: (Kaede) breasts grab, pussy fondling, fingering, pee (tastefully shown), vaginal penetration, lifted hug position, sucking nipples, cum inside (internal view).
2: (Nagisa) exhibitionism, breasts grab, rubbing genitals, vaginal penetration, from behind position, sitting on lap, cumshot (full body).
3: (Nanami) paizuri, breasts play, pussy fondling, vaginal penetration, bent over position, cumshot (full body).
4: (All) vaginal penetration (several positions), jiggly breasts shots.
After the end credits you are shown a few sexy CGs from the game.
Most memorable moment: There are a few dreamy close-up shots of Nanami’s butt and breasts when she wears the micro, transparent swimsuit. Her tight yet curvy ass, sexy cleavage, shy poses and the excellent shading made me wish for 3D goggles.
I don’t believe one should account for what is not in a movie when reviewing it, but I have to say that this title had a lot of potential that should have been exploited. One episode is too short for the level of quality in art and H scenes we are presented with here. The animation could have been better at times and some sex acts were a little redundant, but otherwise Bi-chiku Beach is a beautiful title that should please any kind of viewer, especially if you favor non-extreme content and ever fantasized about the perfect setting to have libertine sex in.
