*Warning: This is a hentai title review. It features graphic language.
Kindan no Byoutou, AKA Abstinence Ward / Forbidden Ward, shows great production value and detail in every of its technical aspects. Plus, the sex scenes are all consensual, erotic, enjoyed by the characters and keep on escalating in lewdness until the end.
Dark yet colorful, atmospheric, urban background art drawn with impressive detail immediately set a cool, comfortable vibe when the movie starts. Some objects and furniture are even drawn with textures. The excellent art here eases immersion.
The first scene introduces the nurse Rinne, showing off her expert fingerplay skills to her love interest, Dr. Sousuke.
Throughout the movie, the handsome, mysterious, well-endowed doctor uses his position of authority to put nurses and female patients into intimacy-friendly situations and give them a taste of his unorthodox medicine. The female characters are all quickly seduced by his ways and sleep with him, which I thought was still somewhat believable as a plot. The absence of forced sex is noticeable and welcomed. It is also unclear whether Sousuke has some kind of persuasion superpower or not: sometimes his eyes glow when he gives orders but the girls don’t seem to become possessed or anything.
Rinne is a black haired, slender, attractive nurse who appears in her early twenties and works under Dr. Sousuke. Her very high-pitched voice somewhat doesn’t seem to fit her looks, and her personality is a little bland, but her devotion to Dr. Sousuke and longing for lovemaking make her adorable.
Sara, the doctor’s first patient, is a shy, cute, silver-haired schoolgirl whose uniform compliments her huge breasts so well I found it very difficult to take my eyes off them. She apparently suffers from androphobia, the fear of men, and you can take a wild guess what happens to her affliction after Sousuke’s special treatment.
Azumi, another patient, stands out with her short green hair, casual clothing and generous curves. She works as a high school teacher and is embarrassed by the treatment yet quickly becomes aroused whenever she thinks about it. She fulfills that fantasy about a chaste, decent woman who gets to reveal her lewd side. She seems to be a married woman, and even though her husband is said to be a stupid tool and is never introduced, some of you might not enjoy the netorare theme going on with her.
Fuyuno, a quiet nurse who has short silver hair, a petite frame and wears glasses, does little in the first episode. She is revealed to be a futanari in the second one, which instantly boosted my interest in her for I am particularly fond of this fetish. She might not be the prettiest one physically but she has an adorable shyness.
Reina, the third patient, has pink hair, a slender, healthy silhouette and works as an eroge idol. Introduced in the second episode, she stars in the movie’s first actually humorous scenes. I’d rather not spill the beans about her story. See it for yourself for its originality and humor.
It is safe to say that the art quality in this title is high above average: the girls are attractive, a good combination of sexy and cute, they have erotic facial expressions and positions and there are up to 4 shades per color on the characters. Even fingernails are drawn with precise lines.
Nipples are particularly well-drawn and move realistically when touched and pressed. Adding extra lewdness to the scenes are the inclusion of saliva, tears, sweat drops and love juices, often abundant on the naked bodies or through the underwear.
Animation quality is also fluid and detailed. Sometimes the characters are shown shivering or making subtle movements. There are only a handful of scenes that feature simpler, not as impressive animation.
The speed of sex acts is sometimes slow, sometimes faster, which, combined with the many, carefully drawn frames and erotic positions, manages to create a more sensual kind of mood. The female characters are always treated with respect and enjoy their special time with Sousuke or with other men. Many scenes have them stick their tongue out in pleasure.
Close-up shots of the female genitals surprisingly feature little censorship unlike many other titles out there. Only so much is lost that you can easily use your imagination to recreate an uncensored image in your mind. The censorship is often heavier on the male genitalia though. Also, although I’m not particularly a fan of internal views, I must admit that the ones depicted here are very well done.
Sex sounds are sometimes loud and a little exaggerated, sometimes subtler and more realistic. A few blowjob scenes feature very lewd sucking sounds. Female voices have varied pitch and Sousuke’s voice seemed much quieter than the female characters’. You might have to turn up the volume everytime he speaks, that is, if you understand Japanese and give a damn. The voice actresses do a fine job of portraying the characters’ emotions and add little details such as sighs in between words and nervous stuttering.
There are 11 sex scenes and they feature:
1: (Rinne) nurse uniform, masturbation, squirting.
2: (Sara) school uniform, stripping, breasts play, pussy fondling and licking, squirting, handjob, blowjob, internal views, swallowing.

7: (Sara) doggie, rubbing genitals, first time, ass grab, sitting position, cum inside, internal view, ball play.
8: (Fuyuno) futanari, masturbates (shown during the 7th scene).
9: (Reina) see through clothes, blowjob, rubbing genitals, squirting, cumshot + facial.
10: (Reina) group, exhibitionism, blowjob, spit roast, cum inside, bukkake.
11: (Rinne, Fuyuno) threesome, futanari, handjob, blowjob, fingering, licking, squirting, facial, first time, male on futa, futa on female, cum inside.
In all honesty, every single moment of this anime I found memorable. Here are a few:
-Azumi sitting on the doctor’s lap, in a strange yet erotic position, jerking him off while he licks her armpit. And seeing her love juices pour out of her drenched panties into a literal puddle a while later.
-Sana’s lewd facial expression, passionately grabbing Sousuke’s balls and playing with them right after he cums inside her.
-Reina’s group scene, making her otaku fans’ dream come true. I especially liked when she had that lewd expression, tongue out, semen being poured inside her mouth.
Kindan no Byoutou shows great production value. The aspects unrelated to sex such as general art and animation are undeniably on par with some of the newer, better, non-hentai titles out there. If you’re looking for eye candy, I’m confident that this title will meet your expectations. Believe me when I say I try to be as objective as possible yet cannot find a single flaw that really impaired enjoyment in this movie.
Content is tame yet lewd, erotic and expertly presented. Unless you are only into the more extreme fetishes such as gore, scat, rape or violence, I believe that Kindan no Byoutou has something for everybody. Its variety, great design, easy immersion and attractive, lustful characters who all enjoy sex make it a noteworthy title and one of my favorites. If it weren’t for the censorship I’d give it a perfect 10/10.
