Suzuna is the only daughter of the Kuraki family. She is training hard to become a priestess. Tomomi brings her to the house of her husband-to-be. The mansion is under a strange spell, releasing the sexual desires of everyone inside.
After seeing my fair share of hard-core tentacle and group sex titles, this was a nice respite from it all. I suppose you could classify this as predominately soft-core/med-core than hard-core. This had a pretty decent plot line, but it seems to stray off its path, leaving you confused at points due to the flashbacks and the change in perspectives. The general theme revolves around a family curse correlating with the "Expected Moon Ceremony" and its effect of seduction amongst the residents in the house. If you're into the whole Shintou/ temple priestess theme and apparel, then you'll really appreciate
this; Suzuna the leading female role looked damn- good in this one transparent mantle she wore ^^. In a sense, this a harem hentai, because the lead male character gets his hands on four women--one very briefly due to the curse curtaining the house. What the story is lacking, is compensated for with its vivid and alluring artwork.
I have to say this is one of the bestly animated hentai I've seen. Artwork is one of the most significant elements that matter to me, and what distinguishes crap from treasure. The artist that did the character designs was " Carnelian", a female CG and doujin artist, which makes sense because you can see a touch of feminism done to the artwork, the whole embellishment and emphasis on aesthetical detail, leaving you---or me anyways, captivated by it.
The sound effects were pretty throrough with the licking, penetration, discharge of fluids, moaning, et cetera. Pretty interesting backround music that compliments the scenery and sex scenes. So, there wasn't anything particularly bad about the sound factor, well I cant vividly remember it to well, but from what I remember anyways, it was good.
Moonlight Lady pairs two intially incompatible people and progresses the story to a Romantic finish fairly well; I say this because with most hentai the term "romantic" usually entails some psycholgical disorder having the victim finding some attachment to the agressor under false pretenses. Usually the line " I want to feel good more" due to some self-found nymphomania, and the line " I love you" being devalued because of the lack of sincerity behind it is testament of the forementioned statement. With that aside, you can find some pretty interesting internal conflicts amongst the characters such as Suzuna and Hayama.
For example, Suzuna being a socially-awkward girl that bases her knowledge of romance off of manga, makes her ill-mannered to Hayama because he isnt the ideal picture of what she envisioned as a man, due to the influence of her manga. However, as the story progresses you see her begin to mature and break away from her initial behavior; nurturing love towards towards Hayama. Social issues is always exhibited by him as well, being a womanizer at the beginning whilst fighting the curse that seduces him, he realizes what Suzuna is to him, and falls for her as well.
Ultimately, it was a nice find admist the hentai garbage you find out there, and I would recommend it for those that like romantic anime. Yeah, that's right, those who are daunted or discouraged by the word " hentai", might find this title as a nice suprise; although explicit, it should be given a chance, and who knows, you might like it.
A girl watching hentai? Sure, why not?! Is it that bad?
I occasionally watch hentai and there only a few of them that I really enjoyed and liked... My first hentai would be End of Summer... back then this was considered as hardcore already (imo) but then seeing the new Hs now, all i can say is, wow! can you say perverted with a capital P?
Main Characters: Suzuna Kuraki and Koichi Hayama
I'll score everything an 8 but i'll give a 9 for the Art since it was well drawn... Suzuna is very pretty/cute and could easily be mistaken as a character in a non-H anime... this
goes the same with Koichi, the male lead... he even reminded me of the Kamui from X... though there are inconsistencies in some scenes but heck, i don't care...
Nothing really original with the story but at least they tried to incorporate one... a typical love story hentai... i guess it would go like this:
- girl gets ready to be priestess
- girl meets betrothed and sparks fly (hate/lust/like/love)
- some H-action with the supporting casts
- jealousy leading to confession
- H-action again (of course!)
- Happy ending
This anime has a lot of Yuri in it w/c is not bad, if i can say so myself... i'm not into that btw... i still prefer the man-woman scenes here which in my opinion are very hot... there would be "rape" scenes here too but can you actually call it rape when they eventually enjoy it? I am not also into the tentacles/monsters type of hentai so this one was just right... the ending was kinda weird and funny...
I liked the chemistry between the 2 leads and their love/hate/lust relationship... it was actually believable that they fell for each other... Suzuna is spoiled as she is innocent while Koichi is the mysterious-brooding type but is kind-hearted... besides, they are two very good looking characters, who wouldn't like that?
I'd recommend this anime for people who want a love story but with the characters going all the way... fair warning though, this is not censored... :)
This show is balls crazy. I skipped through all the weirdo sex/rape scences and watched a fucking psycho ass stories with no resolution and hints to a plot. The characters are really good looking, but times during the dialogue, they're faces would look distorted, with their noses really big and no definition below it.
The main characters romance is really abrupt and rather hard to believe, what with her hating him and him violently raping her. She seems to fall in love with him after he bangs the maid, which is just a case of "it's mine, back off" when you would've assumed
that she would've been happier than he's not, oh i don't know, RAPING HER VIOLENTLY. He throws some bullshit around like "you're the only one for me" and "I like your tits better" and then proceeds to have a nonsensical orgy with the two maids and three village girls. Like wtf. and then somehow he has a demon spirit inside of him, which never gets explained, and then proceeds to fuck the main girl with the demon's cock. I laughed and cringed more than I enjoyed it.
The music is whatever. It's like creepy shit when anything magical happens and then...wait nevermind, it's all creepy shit. The sounds they make are so weird and i dont know if i'll ever watch hentai stuff ever again. I
ok so my first review. apologies in advance, this is not going to have some of the detailed breakdowns i have seen in many other (really helpful) reviews.
sigh. this hentai frustrated me. i feel that there was a decent storyline here trying to get out, but the final result was a confused mess. the set up is quite nicely done in the first three episodes, involving an old family curse, abductions, mind control and an evil matriarch, but by episode four my heart gradually sank as i realised the conclusion was going to be unsatisfactory; and it was, with
the plot lines left completely unresolved. what happened to suzana's mum? or her dad for that matter? koichi's friend? the maids? suzana's cousin? you get the picture. the storyline goes nowhere. the huge jumps in time, where night becomes day in a heartbeat, adds to the general sense of confusion.
fair enough you may say, it's hentai. the plot doesn't matter. sex. it's the sex we want. i hear ya. i watch hentai for well drawn, explicit and erotic sex too. unfortunately, moonlight lady does not deliver in that regard either. first of all, many of the scenes are rapey. i can't get comfortable with sex scenes where the woman involved is clearly saying no. second, the guy doesn't make a sound. not even when he comes. he's having the best sex of his life, with multiple gorgeous women, and he has nout to say. you can forget any horny facial expressions on his part too, as his face is hidden most of the time. the animation of the sexual encounters are quite awkwardly drawn too, so for example the hip positions are mismatched to the extent that sex cannot realistically be taking place, yet we are supposed to believe that it is. there is a fair bit of yuri if you like that sort of thing, and if you have a cum or breast fetish then you may like this.
on the plus side, the animation is bright and clean, and at least suzana has some reasonable characterisation - no-one else does unfortunately.
usually when i watch a poor hentai i just give it a low rating on MAL and move on, but i felt so let down by the wasted potential of this animation i was moved to write something. oh well. the hunt for good hentai continues.
