A P.E. teacher, Nikusuke, happened to obtain a brief of "Dark Rhythmic Gymnastics Project". It is a competition where the players compete with others their lewdness. Following the project, Nikusuke looked for the players with Tomomi, a granddaughter of the board chairman. Their first game was Miku. Tomomi deceived innocent Miku, and she invited Miku out at night.
Shintaisou: Kari or Princess 69 was brought to us by Pink Pineapple and adapted from the 2001 Eroge by Panda House. Usually the H-Anime adaptions of eroge are more vanilla than the source material, but Shintaisou Kari is the opposite instead going darker than the game and adding more fetishes.
So with that being said, yes this is a very perverted H-Anime to start with lets mention some of those fetishes like rape, sexual torture, bondage and scat to name a few. I want to get that stuff out early so those who are turned off by such don't waste their time watching this.
The story.. Well, there isn't much to it big surprise, the majority of the episodes time is given to the sex which is exactly what I want anyway. Still the plot serves its purpose. The premise keeping it brief is rich girl Tomomi and P.E. teacher Nikusuke work together for their own individual messed up reasons to find and initiate girls into the dark gymnastics club which is some kind of twisted, perverted sexual game to them. Each episode focuses on bringing in new girls, breaking them down through extreme sexual acts, and converting them into being part of the team. These scenes mainly take place in the school gym with the girls in gymnastics uniform and they are quite flexible lol, that's about the extent of the gymnastic theme. The characters are all fairly attractive which is nice, my favorite though would be the main Tomomi Shirakawa and likewise her scenes of which she's probably the only character that deserves what she gets.
Shintaisou Kari being from the early 2000s the animation can leave a bit to be desired, but I think Murakami's art style is strong enough that it's still visually appealing and the lighting used gives it a distinct style. Teruaki Murakami is at the helm here so If you have enjoyed any of his other works you are more likely to enjoy this one. That also means that yes the usual classic seizure inducing visual effects are present which I love, along with all the fantastic camera angle positions. The girls are all animated great as well especially in the sex scenes where it counts most.
This is one of few dark H-Anime to be licensed (By Media Blasters) and therefore that nasty censoring removed which is good, however the detail under that censoring is lacking probably because the creators may not have bothered to put much detail into what was originally not going to be seen, who knows? Can't complain really it's still better than pixelization but even that stopped bothering me long ago.
Because this was licensed means we also get English dub for those who want it. Personally I think the English voice acting is pretty bad like it usually is, the girls moans just sound laid back and boring in comparison to the original. I recommend sticking to the Japanese audio if you want the voice acting to match the insanity of the animation. Apart from the voice work all the sound design here is outstanding, considering that there is a lot of crazy stuff going on than just standard sex, you will hear little details like the sound of ropes tightening etc. The soundtrack too is fitting and sits comfortably in the background for the most part coming out strong in the right moments.
To recap there are four episodes all together, no particularly weak ones and all are packed with intense hot sex scenes. I recommend it to you if you like to get extreme with your H-Anime viewing. Over all I really like Shintaisou Kari it's one of my favorites for sure and I hope this short review gave you some insight on whether or not to give your time to the series.
I feel that I should also mention that there is the sequel Shintaisou: Shin or Princess 69: Midnight Gymnastics but it is drastically different and doesn't hold a candle to Kari in my opinion. Thanks for reading! read more
Well, just as the name implies… this is a damned Hentai. And you know what? It’s pretty much just as you would believe a hentai would be, bad animation, bad dubbing, and bad scripts. It’s pretty much only made for someone wacking themselves off or for those dark perverts who want this stuff. And while it has its moments where even I could say I got a little interested in what was happening on the screen, this does not get the best grades when you get right down to the reviewing part of the talk.
We start out with this loser character named Nikusuke, who is an overweight middle age man. He’s fat, rather ugly and gross looking. It’s not my fault when I am describing him, that’s really how he looks. Anyway, he’s a loser who lives in a small apartment and ends up somehow getting a job as a P.E. Teacher at what I believe is an all girls school. You want to know why I think it’s an all girl’s school. Not because it was actually said, but because they showed nothing but female students throughout the whole show. He is always watching the girls, looking at them with perverted eyes and yet is pretty much the stepping stone for the rich bitch of a girl who got him the job.
Then the only other character that seems to have any depth in there character (And I use that in the loosest term) is the girl named Tomomi. Remember the rich bitch that I was talking about a little bit ago? That’s the girl. She, for some stupid reason, seems to only want to have her only friends to get raped so hard core by this perverted guy. There was also not really any type of Gymnastic stuff to it except for the fact they used Gymnastic items in the sex they did. This might as well been called Rhythmic Bondage and actually not even Rhythmic. Nothing you say would make me think other wise too so don’t try to prove me wrong.
The animation was really bad, consisting of looping animations and simplistic backgrounds for anything that actually moved. It made me want to gag when they got to the sex portions, especially when they showed the guy. It was bland, and lacked in any type of outstanding animation.
The dub was what you would expect as well, making me laugh at how stupid they sounded. All the girls seemed to love to call out the guys name twice in one sentence. It seemed like it because they couldn’t not say his name for 5 seconds. And that was the same with Tomomi’s name as well. My ears felt like they were bleeding with many of the voices and I think the only one that worked was Nikusuke’s because it was perfect for the most perverted person ever.
If you want something to wack off and you don’t care if it has some really gross out images, go ahead and watch it… if you want something that actually makes sense or has good graphics, then go find something else. read more
I will preface my review with this. I would stay away from this series unless you have the stomach, or the fetish for these things: rape, bondage, torture, blood, watersports, and other bodily functions.
I'll start with the art and sound. These are the only true redeeming qualities of this show when it comes to it's content. Objectively I was impressed at the quality (for a hentai). Had this been more tame in it's violence, it would probably have been very arousing. It wasn't censored, which is also a plus.
I do admit there was a spot in episode three that I felt was a little risky. It's similar to that infamous episode of pokemon where the screen flashes red and blue which caused viewers to have seizures. In this it usually just flashed red and not every much at certain parts, but in that episode I could swear that it had been taken a bit overboard. Luckily I suffered no seizures, and it may not be anything to concern myself with, but I'd feel better warning you. If you have suffered epileptic seizures or if family has, I would skip over the part with electrodes because that is where it occurred.
Story. Definitely not for the faint of heart. It's not very deep, but I could never really understand what the whole thing was about. Some rich and influential girl sets up a secret gymnastics team focused on training under extreme pain, both mental and physical. The first girl is an innocent kind of girl. She's very friendly and was the only one that doesn't mind Professor Doguro. In fact, she's quite friendly in the innocent way with him. Professor Doguro begins working under Tomomi, the student that set up the whole thing, to train the students in the dark gymnastics. He's a big pervert and throughout the series, quite a monster.
Nevertheless, he rapes and tortures these helpless girls, but like a lot of hentai, afterward, they become very loyal to him and fall in love with him. It's quite a sick story when you get down to it.
In this you can expect 6 girls to fall under his control. What's strange about this show is that outside of the brutal situations, the show tries to be funny or cute. One second a girl is being brutally raped, goes home, cries and then the next calls all of the other girls who were raped for a sleepover and the professor looks like he's in heaven and the whole ordeal is made out to be some light sex party. Then the next day, they put him on a diet, and treat him like he was their lover.
Characters: The only two characters I didn't really like was Tomomi, and Doguro Nikusuke. All of the other characters, I felt sorry for, I actually felt sorry for Tomomi as well, but she set up the whole nightmare, and ultimately had to pay a price for it, becoming just like the other girls. Only instead, the tables were turned and the very monsters she created turned on her to "initiate" her as part of the team. If you think this is a spoiler, it isn't. From episode 1 you can tell that something similar was going to happen. Doguro constantly mutters under his breath that he will make her his toy or slave eventually, and it comes true just like the rest. Doguro is constantly portrayed as some comic hero outside of the sex situations, but deep down, he was a monster.
Overall, I had a hard time enjoying it (in that way). Everything seemed to confuse me in a lot of ways. I actually kind of like light bondage in my hentai, but not painful bondage. And there were a couple other things that were arousing. But the overall torture and heavy rape was a turn off. Even worse, the scenes have stuck with me overnight and I still get chills from thinking about it. There was several scenes with blood. It wasn't gory, mind you, but there were things like clamps being used on breasts and nipples and sometimes these clamps would draw blood when used. Luckily it seemed that after the initiation of a girl, she wouldn't go through most of it again, just some rough intercourse. But the amount of pain I saw nauseated me.
Comments I read varied between "this is tame" or "this was hot" all the way to "you're sick if you like this". There was a clear warning in the description and I didn't take heed, and while I didn't skip anything, this was an experience I wish I could go back. This could seriously scar you mentally. Now, if you enjoyed this, I won't judge you. I know the difference between fiction and reality, and a large part of why I was able to ultimately get through it was because I understood that difference, and that some of it was kind of over the top anyway. You can do some pretty sick things in videogames, and most people who do so are just fine. I had an itch myself for something a little more brutal than the usual vanilla stuff I like. I just underestimated how brutal it was, and probably won't watch another thing like this for a long time. I mean years even.read more
