An OVA based on the WAFFLE game. The story follows Ryuuto Hende, a soldier with unbelievable luck who was assigned to the province where a succubus is drying out men to death, and the local "first lady", who happens to be sexually frustrated. The H-parts show mostly a big-breasts theme and mutual love/appreciation.
One of the best hentai ever came out, with hilarious, funny and good storyline. It can be accepted as one of the best hentai I have ever watched. Let's just get to the point,
Story 8/10 :
The story begins in a medieval-themed and fantasy world. The kingdom itself is in a problem of having too many corruptions and wars is looming around the kingdom on where the protagonist live. The protagonist, just graduated from the Knight Academy was assigned to solve a problem against a succubus in a certain area. His misfortune or maybe luck begans...
Art 8/10 :
The drawing and art of the anime itself is
very good, especially if you like these kind of Art. Well, you do know what I meant.
Sound 9/10 :
Well, who wouldn't like this. It has a very good seiyuu to voice over most of the characters inside but well, it lacks some background music (BUT IT DO HAVE SOME BACKGROUND MUSIC) unlike some other anime that I have watched in this genre, but who cares as long as the voice is very good. The ED song is very good too.
Character 8/10 :
Most of the characters inside this anime are enjoyable, their design, their characteristics and their own personality, everyone have a lot of different personality and the anime portrays it well.
Enjoyment 9/10 :
In my case, I do enjoy watching this, I would say it's the best hentai I have ever watched but considering some other good one too, I would put it as one of the best.
Overall 9/10 :
I enjoyed it from the first to second episode, well, Although I haven't watched this until the end, I would put this as one of my favourite hentai.
Kyonyuu Fantasy actually has me in a quandary. But before I get into the confusions, we'll get into where I sit; and where the video series stands. Or maybe I'll just dive in and speak the truth.
If I had to rate Kyonyuu Fantasy as strictly for its Hentai value, I'd have to be mildly displeased. Don't get mad, I will get better. I promise. The girls are pretty as hell (albeit, tending towards the "can't see their feet" variety). The fellows are mainly generic and lackluster. The sex-scenes tend towards the humorous or unlikely, or that other thing that comes to
mind "... why are they doing that again? ...". In fact, most of the sex-scenes are pretty much meat and potatoes, nothing wrong with that. But charm, romance and innovation; plus a bit of surprise might be nice.
The voice acting, what there is of it, is quite good. In fact, the voice that really stands out is Shamsiel Shahar. I will call her an energy vampire, succubus is inappropriate (if we want to go to the dictionary and look it up, and I think readers should). She is not only the best drawn for action scenes, but the voice actor makes her so cute, all you want to do is give her a child's hug and kiss (she certainly wants to do that with almost everybody, that is, when she's not eating them ). The other great voice is Gladis von Wakenhaim. Wow, aside from being drawn quite lovely, the voice is; deep, warm, sensual. A fellow could drown in that lovely voice. The other voicings, while pleasant enough, are not standouts.
Now I get to the quandary.
Once in a great while, we get a Hentai video, with such a strong story that if we remove the mandatory excessive sexual moments from the anime, we get a first rate story. Magin Label blew this thing so badly, that they utterly missed the meaning of what they created.
This anime's story has everything. The number of great stories created and placed in the middle ages, even in novels, movies, or comics; can be counted on the fingers of one hand. The unfinished plot contained in Kyonyuu Fantasy ranks with Ivanhoe and King Arthur. Let's look at this thing in detail.
Oto is a fine and prosperous kingdom, ruled by a strict but fair king. His incompetent son has sided with neighboring nations, to depose Oto's king, and the son become the new puppet king; an act of extreme treason.
Meanwhile, in the province of Boan, a monster (a very pretty and vivacious female monster) is running loose and murdering innocent farmers. A newly minted knight, arrives, just in time to be appointed the task of destroying the monster. The monster arrives to confront and destroy the knight, only to find that a). he refuses to die; and b). he seems to be able to charge/feed the monster and extend her life. Monster is grateful, and agrees to become the knights' permanent companion. Blossoming eventually to outright friendship!
Following these events, our hapless pair is ordered to return the wife of the Governor of Boan (a loveless marriage) to her family in the City of Oto. While traveling, several things transpire. Governor uses this excuse to entrap his own wife in what looks like infidelity, in order to bring about a divorce, so that he can return to City of Oto himself, so unencumbered.
Within that time frame, Shemsiel discovers a written plan to side with the Kings' Son and foment revolution, written in the Governor's own hand. In the ensuing events, the Governor of Boan is struck dead by Shemsiel; saving everyone from embarrassment and awkwardness. Treason is afoot, and upon return to Boan, the knight disguises himself as the Governor and confronts the King's Son. Bringing about his arrest.
Eventually the knight and the widow end up back in City of Oto, where the chief of the School of Knights is attempting to start up his own conspiracy, in order to ruin the School of Knights, and bring down the King, in his own favor.
In the middle of all of this, is the continuing pressure applied by the General of a Rebel Army, existing within the borders of Oto itself; Gladis von Wakenhaim! Eventually, after being promoted to General by the King, the knight confronts and defeats Gladis; via the instrument of the outcome of a chess game! She becomes another of the knights' friends, and thereby returning her to honorable service within the Armies of Oto.
Wow! And this is just the beginning of a tale somebody should finish. Lot's of questions abound.
1). Why is the Knight, known to be a buffoon, so able to see outside of the box; and defeat everything thrown at him?
2). What is the origin of Shemsiel Shazar?
3). Can Isis really stand up straight with a sword that big on her hip?
4). Can the King of Oto throw out his misgivings, side with the right Army Officers, and find a way to protect Oto from what will obviously bring about War with Ringobalt?
These and many other questions remain, with 90% of the plot unwritten. This story can lead to one of the best Swords and Sorcery franchises ever made. But alas, it will never happen. Magin Label is known to never finish anything they've ever started; and probably never will. And we can assume that Waffle (creators of the scenario) won't either, as they are too geared to the creation of pornographic video games.
With that I finish this review, of a rare piece of literary excellence, struggling to operate as a Hentai anime (I am struck dumb by the strength of this incongruity). I give this an overall score of 7.
With aluminum bat in tow, my efforts to bludgeon those who wanna fool you and trick you with their promiscuity and lies bring me to this title as well.
Kyonyuu Fantasy is one of those "Dungeons & Dragons" genre adult anime. I'm surprised that Dark Schneider and Rance didn't come around and turned h-anime like these upside down, but hey.
The SUCCUBUS herein happens upon some "luckless, eyeless self-insert male lead of the show who has an incredible sex drive." Now, "luckless eyeless male leads" are annoying IMMHO. And it would be nice if they had more personality. (An "eternally saluting soldier" is a dime a dozen.)
show's also got a decent plot holding it together. Ryuuto, gaining help from said SUCCUBUS Shamsiel, deals with attempted blackmailing and assassinations, internal family feuding, a rebelling army, and is still able to get some "breastyscrew love."
The logo for "Kyonyuu Fantasy" looks nightmarishly HORRIBLE, btw.
I think that KD7BWB pretty much summed up my own thoughts about this series. However, there are a few plot hole that I feel the compulsiive need to point out. IF YOU DON'T LIKE SPOILERS, IGNORE THE STUFF BETWEEN THE ********'S!
The fact that so many of the women are lactating? REALLY?!?! are they ALL pregnant?
During his match with Gladys, Ryuuto notices that his hands are hot. Shamsiel tells him that it is fine because he was 'reborn' and you see a diamond shaped symbol on the back of his hand. "Reborn" as WHAT exactly?
this story supposedly takes place during the middle ages. well then
why do they have EXPLOSIVES?
going back to #2, there really is no explanation given as to what exactly makes Ryuuto so special, being at the bottom of his class to becoming ridiculously insightful all of a sudden.
All in all, I would have to say it is a pretty good story, but it looks a little unfinished with all of the plot holes.
