Masquerade is the story surrounding the Hiraga bloodline in which Gen is a part of. Recently orphaned, he moves in to his grandmother's house and unwittingly triggers the Hiraga clan's curse in which nearly every member leads a tragically short life. In his grandmother's house, Gen begins to unravel vaguely remembered memories from a dream he's always had. With the help of an American graduate student, they try to uncover the secret of the Hiraga bloodline, the whispered legend of immortality that is locked in his genes, and a way to keep Gen from sharing the same fate that every one of his ancestors before him has suffered.

Firstly, im not usually into hentai, but i do enjoy adult anime, which happens to include sex. Having said that, i actually quite enjoyed this anime, as it had a quite interesting story line. there were a handful of sex scenes where i thought eh why, but that is to be expected from hentai, but on a whole, the sex actually was integral to the story.

i enjoyed the immortal/vampire element to this anime as it was an unusual take on the myth.

the were some elements in this hentai which made me uncomfortable, but i was able to get through it because read more

Hentai is not something I enjoy; some things are better off in live- action. However, the reviews at Anime News Network spoke highly of this feature, and the artwork was very pretty, so my interest was roused. It took me sometime but I was able to track it down and watch it.

And I wasn't disappointed. MASQUERADE (or its more appropriate Japanese title of ANCESTOR's GLORY) is more or less like every other hentai, where a guy and a girl get together and do it – but thankfully the story that centers around this is a fairly good one, that boasts a decent narrative and characterization. read more
