Although they aren't dating now, Okino Kazuki is confident that he’ll end up with his best friend Sakuragi Otome. They live happy lives, oblivious to the jealous looks they get from the other important person in Okino’s life, his sister Rinka.
Their blissful innocence is brought to a halt when Okino sees Sakuragi led away by a perverted older man. After that, Okino begins to receive the DVDs. They contain porn starring the love of his life, and as Okino watches them one by one, he notices a change in Sakuragi.
As Okino questions whether he can love Sakuragi as she is now, he learns that there are other things he should be worrying about. How did Sakuragi wind up with the men in the videos in the first place?
A famous philosopher once said “It was all a dream, I used to read Word Up magazine”. Looking back to his 1994 work, one would never think that hentai would take it this far. Well, it did. Otome Dori plays into the popular “It was all a dream” approach and it comes off as a deep and philosophical story about an unfortunate young man who happens to get videos in the mail which depict his childhood friend being violated by fat old men. Something so cruel couldn't be true, right? Well folks, it gets worse.
Let's get this out of the way, it is not intended
for all audiences. Some of the weaker willed people cannot handle a NTR story, especially one with the additional lewd plot points in which this one has. It is unfortunate due to the fact that they are missing out on one of the best examples of the genre. Regardless of their whining, the story takes a typical NTR scenario and twists it into something special. It is a story of betrayal, jealousy, and pure unadulterated rage. Carn's complex story makes the viewer question themselves on what is actually the truth and what is actually fake. We see it through the hapless main character who is thrown into a sticky situation where he gets a mysterious DVD in the mail. After opening it up and viewing the contents, he realizes it's his childhood friend and love interest is being violated by faceless old men. As the story progresses and the DVDs become more and more graphic one begins to think that it's too cruel to be true. Follow it up with the main character questioning his own sanity and the cruelty of the acts, one gets the idea that there is something more behind the scenes which they need to decipher themselves. Luckily, the unexpected mastermind behind this unfortunate story reveals herself and her true goals which works its way to the thrilling conclusion in which the viewers question the reality of what they had seen prior. It is an incredible way to play with your mind and I must say that the complexity and depth of this story is unparalleled for the genre.
Sadly, there are some disappointing aspects of the Otome Dori adaption as well. Sadly, some scenes in the second episode were cut short and others from the original h-manga were omitted. This knocks it down slightly due to the fact that it was not a complete adaption and the viewer does not get the same experience that the manga reader does. While the scenes were not completely relevant to the plot, they did add to the despair and overall theme of the story. Another issue is the varying quality of the art. The first episode had relatively high quality art while the second one had multiple scenes with off model quality art which is a strange clash compared to the much more higher quality that you had previously scene. While hentai is not known for its consistency and quality work, it is still nonetheless a valid criticism. However, the pros definitely outweigh the cons in the story overall.
Otome Dori truly does make you question what in your life is real and what is not. Who knows, one day you might be woken up by who's presumably your child and your wife who's expecting your second after a long nightmare. Or maybe that's just another dream? Who knows what is reality and who to trust? Do you trust the Maury show or do you trust your own beliefs. Otome Dori takes the aspect of your inner nightmares and puts them into a story that can happen to anyone. They say dreams are a reflection of your inner most desires. Let's just hope that you don't have such a twisted mind that enjoys such agony and maybe you wont be as unfortunate as our main character in this story. I leave you with a word of caution when fantasizing about things because in the end they might come true.
Please disregard the guy/girl who gave this anime a score of 1.
S/he knew damn well what this anime was about (s/he watched both episodes), and if s/he didn't, then s/he should go read the manga.
Now onto my review.
Otome Dori is netorare, and I understand that not everyone likes netorare. It's a bit of a paradox, you see, it hurts the heart but pleases the loins. Stirs it up or makes it wet, depending on your gender. In case you didn't know, netorare (NTR) is a genre of hentai that gives you pleasure by having the girl stolen from the guy through sexual means. It differs
from cheating in the sense that women in NTR put carnal pleasure over romantic affection, whereas women who cheat do so because of the thrill.
In Otome Dori, it is the same. Guy and girl have some romantic attraction, then girl gets stolen away from the guy, and you see the guy go into despair. For a bit, since the series only has two episodes. He then gets a little relief, only for it to be crushed by something more sinister.
Netorare works such as these almost always follow the same format. It is what defines netorare, so the variation comes from the sidelines. In this case, two close friends with a one-year age gap is quite common, and as such nothing is special about it. For that, the story gets 6.
Now we go to the art section and it only boils down to one thing for me: was the art good enough to arouse me? The answer is yes, and no. While there are some parts that look good, in my opinion these parts are offset by some of the animations looking rushed. I am not an art major, so I cannot say if others have the same opinion as me, but Otome (the female lead) looks good. And with that I give the art a score of 6 as well.
Sound... there's nothing noteworthy in Otome Dori except perhaps the Ending Song. It is mesmerizing. The moans, screams, orgasm sounds, sexy time music, sound effects, they seem normal to me. Kind of mediocre, actually, because I can't remember them. I should rate this a 4 or 5 but the Ending Song scores a point so I think I want to score this a 6. But no, I should be unbiased. I shall therefore give the sound a 5. If you asked me to rate the Ending Song alone, it would be 8.
Onto the character section, this part almost always get downplayed by the NTR genre. You see, for it to work you must either have: a) a weak girl; or b) a guy who does not believe the girl. The most common solution to prevent a netorare situation is simply for the girl to report the incident to the proper authorities. You might say, what if the authorities are in it? I say you'd have a higher chance of finding a wallet with cash inside than finding out that the authorities are going to screw you... literally or figuratively. Besides, corrupt cops would have better sources of income (taxpayer money included) unless we are talking about a slave syndicate. It would be normal to assume that in some countries (that I cannot mention else I wake up with cement shoes and be thrown into a lake) but most NTR titles occur in Japan and their police seem to have a good track record but I have noticed that I managed to go off-track, so back to the character analysis.
Women in the NTR genre are purposefully made weak. A strong woman would make it fail. Therefore there is no mentionable difference between the woman in Otome Dori and the women in other NTR titles.
Most men in NTR are just as weak and Otome Dori is not an exception. Mind you, there are exceptions in the NTR genre.
As such the character section gets 6 as well.
Enjoyment is an automatic 8 for me because I like NTR. Those who hate NTR need to remember that this is the only section they can freely manipulate with bias. I'm talking to you who rated this 1. Get your head out of your ass.
Averaging all the sections EXCEPT ENJOYMENT I get 5.75, rounded up to 6.
To summarize: Otome Dori is not suited for everyone, but even to the audience it caters to it is quite average. Ordinary. There is an enjoyment factor, mind you, but as far as technical aspects go, it is average.
Why did I not include enjoyment in my averages? Because it's biased. Just like some people who do not know how to write a MAL review. Don't review things if you cannot assume a neutral view. The "Enjoyment" rating exists for a reason. Abuse it as you wish, give it a -79,361,285 rating, I could not care less.

now let me start by saying that you all might get pissed
but you all would understand when I get to the second dis.
now everyone around come and listen to this rap
I bet this song would be better than that (otome-dori)
now I know we all got dreams but I know all of us are good
but hentai like this, c'mon I know you all would
go along with this verse I know you all got power
but all you guys do is go jack off and take a shower
you guys think you can hurt me with
words like "choices"
but you all don't understand is that "fuck you we all have voices."
now theres other things in life to take out stress
hentai in this world is not really the best
like this hentai for example
its so disgusting and such sample
of something that you can just hang up upon a mantle
theres other things like sports or music
but when you make my anime impure, oh man I just lose it
listen guys I respect your all horny
but listen this anime just seems kinda corny
theres one thing I should mention and all y'alls penis
its like you played with it and made the tip become venus
now let me specifically direct this rap toward NTR
I just don't like how stories in those are just the way they are
but ya I accept them ahah well the minority
when most are NTR hentais hah the majority
what im trying to say is that these are not healthy and not the right choice
when theres more things in life than a penis that is moist
but unlike some people who don't understand
is that we all have a second chance
to make anime pure again
so let help you all up and stand on your two feet and hands
while having a life where I can help you all understand
that this damn scoreboard cant go higher than 10
so here don't be sad
just join the movement to the new era of pure anime
where all can just hold hands and celebrate
like we all can see a happy anime girl another day
so come out of the darkness don't be ashamed
if anyone tried to hurt ill tell them come here ill knock your face
I graded this anime with low score of 1
when the impact of this anime disgusting images is a ton
and im just wondering where this came from
probrably from a fat dude with a hand full of cum
so come my otaukus and anime fans
lets free anime from its prison of darkness give it a second chance
to recover from its long way fall to porn
every one lets blow that war horn
and eliminate the NTR hentais
where in the anime world we all can wait till the sun can rise
^_^ thanks for reading (friend me or join my clubs)
Otome is the childhood friend of Kazuki who befriended her when he found her crying near a fountain , We get a brief montage of them interacting in years until we arrive at the High school years, where we get a brief moment of Kazuki and Otome having the typical Childhood friends devolving feelings for eachother.
We cut too a moment where kazuki and Otome along with Kazuke's younger sister are sitting in the shade of a tree talking about their futures and Kazuke admits he wants to be with Otome for the rest of his life
,much to his little sister jealousy. (subtle hint..) and we get a few moments of them getting close and imagining lewd thoughts of them together.
it all changes though when Kazuke is out shopping and briefly see's Otome being fondled by an old man and led away but kazuke shrugs it off as him seeing things.
Kazuke then begins to receive DVD's from an unknown person, he makes a horrifying discovery that it's porn, porn of Otome being a sex slave for 4 horny middle aged men.
There is no explanation of why it happens and why Otome stays with them doing it we only get a hint at her having something promised in return for her to be used as a sex toy to the four men. even though she seems to not like it when her Virginity is taken by the first man when she wanted it to be with Kazuke.
this crushes Kazuke mentally and we end episode one with Otome welcoming him home only to receive the cold shoulder from Kazuke.
We cut to 10 minuets of Otome in a assortment of sex positions,moves and fetishes. much to the delight of the old men when she admits to loving it and liking the idea of being a slut. Kazuke finally breaks down after Otome is asked if she still cares for Kazuke in which she doesn't even care for his exsistance.
Kazuke snaps and goes wondering off in a mental broken state, we then cut to Kazuke's sister Rinka who is in a Diner with an older man which then is revealed as her setting it up for "PERSONAL" reasons, the old man whispers to her that they should go to a secret place too f*ck, Kazuke see's his Sister enter a public Bathroom and loses his mind at the sight and sounds.
Kazuke is hit in the head by one of the middle aged men and awakes to being raped by his sister who confesses that she set it up and it's all apprantley Kazukes fault for wanting to marry Otome and not his Sister.
she reveals that she was the one in Otome's current situation before and was being raped for years. she then cries out she wants her brothers baby.
(the typical Incest cliche)
Kazuke realizes this is what has to happen and spends the night in a hot sex rampage with his little sister.
But does he??
we cut to a middle aged Kazuke waking up in a horrible sweat to then have a girl run in who looks like Otome and it's revealed to be just a horrible nightmare and that he married Otome and had a daughter with her.
when Otome and his Daughter leave for a day trip ,Kazuke wonders back to his bed only to find one of the DVD's from his "Dream" and we end our two Part Hentai with him hiding the DVD and wanting his current situation to be reality and not another dream.
This is probably the worst attempt at a Story in Hentai because it just doesn't make sense.
- Is what happend in most of the episodes a dream is his current situation a dream or what?? the series needed to pick one or the other.
- if his Sister was being raped non stop why did she then agree to have sex with the older man after??
- finally if all she wanted to do was screw her brother and make him hers , why did she go through such an elaborate scheme and not simply rape her brother at the start??
In the end though I was never here for the story as it was sickening and left me feeling a bit bad for watching it. Otome's Scenes are pretty nice purely because of her facial expressions and the moves and positions she''s put through.
I avoided Rinka's scenes and eventually cut down the video too Otome's scenes.
don't bother with this Hentai Series it's pretty creepy and mean spirited , Otome is the only thing that keeps this from getting an overall 1 score.
