Based on the erotic game Zoku Hitou Meguri by Riddle Soft.
Mao, who has a secret crush on Mikio, makes up her mind and invites him to go on a trip. The invitation gets accepted, and at the thought of the trip just for the two she feels elated. Mikio falls asleep right after installing himself in a seat opposite Mao in the train, helplessly spoiling the sport. She expands her expectations looking forward to upcoming events, though his seeming lack of interest dampens her ardor a bit. Despite her hopeful view, however, it turns out that her passion for Mikio only ends up arousing the sexual desire of a man that appears unexpectedly...
Just something to point out first: If you do not like rape or NTR in hentai, than I recommend staying away from this one. On the other hand, if you do like those things for whatever strange reason, then Hitou Meguri Kakure Yu is something you should check out.
I say that it's NTR (a guy stealing a girl away from another guy), but the supposed main guy who happens to be the main (and only) female's older cousin, is hardly ever seen in these two episodes. The main focus is between the guy who steals the girl away (he apparently knows the girl's cousin somehow)
and Mao, the female protagonist.
It begins with Mao and her cousin going to a hot springs resort for a few days. Before getting on the train, the other guy (he only mentions his name once in the 2nd episode so I forgot it) sees the two of them and follows them onto the train. Once Mao's cousin is asleep, he sits across from her on the train and molests her. After that, the story is basically just the one guy following Mao everywhere whenever her cousin isn't around and going father and farther with her each time until eventually Mao starts to enjoy the sex.
The show has pretty good art, but the first episode's sex scenes are a not very interesting. As I mentioned, Mao slowly starts to get into the sex as it goes along, so I found the later scenes to be much better once Mao was really getting into it. But that's just the opinion of someone who doesn't like rape at all. The one thing this show definitely has going for it is Mao. Her design is great with normal sized breasts and a school swimsuit tan-line.
It’s appalling to find such massive amounts of female degradation in all sorts of porn today, however Hitou Megure Kakure Yu: Mao-hen (M-h for short) is unique, which makes it being misunderstood by the regular porn audiences, people so depraved that they think it’s exciting watching men urinating at women to say the very least.
The synopsis will make you think M-h is just one more mediocre hentai/anime show of a poor beautiful women obsessed with a pathetic-worthless guy whose main quality is being nice, but in fact degrades her, like Rito to Lala in to-love-ru, one case in a legion. But I
felt M-h like a compensation for all the legions of these repulsive shows. The audience surely resented it. Despite M-h’s two episodes hardly lasting half an hour they still managed to portray human sexual and emotional nature and desire to realistic and detailed levels that maybe no other show has ever display before.
As in most porn, M-h surely displays a guy [Kenzou] performing unrealistic strong sex and freely displaying his evil nature. But he did bother to work on Mao [his target] by applying on her a lot of foreplay and raising her sexual desire by steps, leading her to reach a striking final climax scene full of emotion and facial expressions that in my honest opinion beat all common and revered art such as Mona Lisa, along with a musical background that conveyed her sadness. The sexual scenes in M-h truly became beautiful and exiting in implicit ways, such as the last scene when the door is unlocked. No wonder this show has gotten a poor 6.40 ranking, and there’s more.
The issue is that women in general do like this sort of bold and evil men when it comes to sex. Plenty of us, regular guys have complained at one point or another that what women really love is jerks, while women have normally insisted they only want nice guys. Scientists are finding out that both sides are right, women like both, and it’s only stupid Western logic that makes it hard to face it. But it makes sense.
It’s bold men like Kenzou the ones who can inspire sexual desire, which may just be a physical thing. Just look here at Mao bothering to ask him his name at the very end of the show. Inspiring female desire takes more, M-h is one of the few approaches at portraying such situations and could only do so much.
Now, nice men like Mikio in here may struggle to inspire sexual desire but other than that they are convenient partners that do attract women in this sense. Here, Mikio is a middle class college student, a good marriage prospect for most women, especially very conservative ones like Mao who may well prefer to stay at home than working.
Mao lashes out at Mikio too often and gets offended even if she has no right, while she lets Kenzou do and say everything to her. You may deride Mao as a hypocrite faking righteousness. This behavior does happen in real life quite often. I think these women use repressive sexual conventions to justify being rude, but they may be rude due to their sexuality being repressed and denied and if they are to come across as respectable people the better.
Yes, Mao uses her rudeness to try to impress Mikio and make him think she would be a loyal wife because she hates sex, which is a respectful stance for conservative people, which in turn makes conservatives hateful themselves and deserving of being treated rudely, like Mikio gets treated. These is a pattern very typical in anime, but never displayed like in M-h to the point of turning tables upside down. Women also create these environments and it just feel right and comic all the times Kenzou in turn called Mao a perverted. At times she defended herself pointlessly, at times used Kenzou’s own words such as saying sex is a normal thing, which makes M-h a show with a lesson.
