Saionji Akitsugu is the heir to his father's immense fortune. But, he hates his father as he holds him responsible for pushing his mother to kill herself. When his father dies, Saionji is the least bit inclined to claim his inheritance. But his newly arrived secretary, Sannomiya Rei convinces him otherwise. He finally arrives at his ancestral home - a palatial mansion brimming with pliant maids who, he presumes, existed for the sole purpose of servicing their now deceased master...
Oh boy... how to start... this film threw me into a really bad loop.
I ignored this film for months thinking it was going to be another one of those hentai flicks with a scumbag Mc who rapes and sexually abuses the servants but boy was I wrong!
I was told to give it a try that I would not regret it and thankfully i don't....
This film feels more like an R-rated suspense/mystery drama than an actual hentai.
Porn with plot, anyone?
Sure there was a bit of rape and sexual abuse but its justified and is not gruesome or hardcore.
Also the Mc is a prick but no obnoxious,
he actually has a reason to why he is a prick but things change in later run with his character development.
Yes... there was actual character development in a hentai film... surprising isn't it?
And the h-scenes are more mild and vanilla than actual rape scenes to be honest.
I thought that the main heroine was going to be the maid with glasses since she is in the cover but god damn! the twist that just happened with her throw me off!
I guess she was more of a catalyst than a heroine for the following train wreck that soon came forward.
And then they kept me on a loop asking myself "who is the god damn culprit?!"
I had my suspects but then there were other twists that made me doubt but at the end I was right.
Alright, on the cast we got: An abhorred Mc who is a prick because he hates his father for what he did to his mother.
An agent that tries to make him inherit the state and fortune.
A butler of the family.
A glasses maid who was in love with the Mc's father.
A childhood friend maid
A long haired maid who wants to be Mc's #1 girl
And a yandere maid who is completely mind broken.
The following I will discuss the story so you will find spoilers. If you dont want to read spoilers you can come back after watching the film or just skip forward to my conclusion.
Now lets begin.
Saionji, Akitsugu is the main character male lead. He became a grumpy young man and a prick after witnessing the suicide of his mother and blames his father for driving his mother into such action, so he left the mansion to never return.
years later his father died and Hayami, Sayo, who claims to be an investigator (and its actually a japanese federal agent in a cover mission), came to him since she was supposedly hired to bring Saionji (the Mc) back to the mansion to inherit everything; thing that he refused but Sayo (the agent) made a deal with him and in the end convinced him.
He comes to Japan to deal with the inheritance hassle but was with a bad attitude all the way because of his hatred. There he meets the butler and 4 maids who served under his father in the mansion... and secretly were used for 'special service' (except one of them for reasons soon will be told)
After witnessing the the maid with glasses get molested by another maid, he went to speak with the butler. The butler tells him that the maids were used for special night services which is why the behavior but the one most affected by the death of the master was glasses maid who was in love with.
Mc bites on the service idea and thinking of trying to break glasses maid and make her loyal to him, requests to be the first one to service him.
However, glasses maid actually tried to assassinate Mc before being submitted for [revenge maybe?] because of her love to the master.
Mc easily neutralizes her and proceed to sexually molest the maid entering in foreplay as he fingers the maid until she orgasm... alas there was no sign if she later got penetrated or not as the screen fades and scene changes.
The next day... PLOT TWIST!! Butler brought Mc to the bathroom because he found glasses maid dead... DEAD!!!! DAFAQ?! What a way to waste a maid, and I liked her too...
Anyways, Mc began to think that all this was a plot for him to leave the mansion and forget the inheritance so he took in his hands to look for the culprit. Then he asked butler to hide the body in the basement's freezer.
At breakfast the next day, he informs the maids that glasses maid died, long haired maid asked 'who killed her', thing that Mc glares at her saying he never said it was murder and asked her how she knew, which made long hair maid fidget.
Out of suspicion, that night she was requested, and it turns out that long haired maid wanted to be Mc's #1 girl so she pretty herself up and wore the best dress and head her way to young master's chambers to get her most waited wish of a lovey dovey passionate night...
Boy was she wrong...
She ended up in a torture chamber instead as she was submitted to bondage and Mc tortured her to confess that she was the killer.
Then proceed to rape her with sex toys trying to make her spill the beans.
But she claims she was not the culprit, sure she felt jealous because she wanted to be close to her young master and serve him with all her heart but she did not kill glasses maid.
Mc even threw a snake at her but she still claims innocence so he let her go.
The next day, his childhood friend maid almost got killed by a falling base and Mc had to calm her down by the scare.
That night he requested for childhood maid's services to talk about what she knew and about the incident.
She was about to confess something but hold back, then Mc took her for a stroll to reminiscence on past memories and then both got trapped on the green house.
Long haired maid knew this, it looks like she was the one who did it which made him think (and us) that she lied when torture and she was the culprit when she suddenly showed up up front of the locked door. Then speaks muted words to the Mc and walks away.
Hours later they were found by butler and agent and rescued them, but Akane (childhood maid) suffered from sever fever so they took her for first aid.
Then Mc quickly began to look for long haired maid to request for an explanation of her actions but could not find her anywhere. Then he remember the basement and went there to find himself with her corpse... it seems she was trapped and died from bleeding from a stab wound in the stomach; but she had a key in her hand.
It seems the long hair maid was innocent and all she did was go back to the mansion to ask for help and find the key to free her beloved young master when the murderer got to her.
Loss for words, Mc began to analyses everything and then came to one conclusion.
He confront the last maid and demanded her to tell the truth. He claimed that it was her that killed glasses maid, and then tried to kill childhood maid then killed long haired maid.
She claimed that she could not be the culprit because the day the vase fell on Akane (childhood maid) she was on the toilet.
Then he says that doesn't matter because the bathroom was on the exact same spot...
Then the last maid reveals herself to really be a yandere mind broken psychotic maid and does confess that she killed them all because they always brought filth to the house, a house that she is obsessed with and claims to be hers and her only.
Then she draws out a knife and tries to stab Mc. Mc brought out a gun given to him by agent earlier but before he could shoot, butler intervened.
Yandere maid was then captured and tied up then Mc and butler discuss what to do next as they supposedly found the culprit.
Mc requests for butler to tell him why he stopped him; then butler begans to tell a sad tale about a little girl who had problems with the family, was tortured as a child but then was saved by the Mc's father... but then also mind broke her with sexual services... yandere mentally broke down and began having illusions that she was the master's daughter and that she had a right to claim the house.
Mc then had a moment of compassion and asked butler to bring her to his chambers, thing that butler opposed.
Yandere maid then proceeded that night to his room, with another illusion of daddy/daughter play... yet Mc calmly took her to bed and began treating her kindly and lovely with gentleness and care and proceed to have full sex with.
The next day, Mc found yandere girl chocked to death and hanging from the Curtains. It seemed that she was not the culprit in the end but a mind broken child.
And Mc was once again at loss.
Later on, Akane (childhood friend) thinks about her secret, the thing she wanted to confess... it turns out that the master didnt touch her because she is actually his daughter and Mc's little sister...
This is confirmed as the master confesses that if something happens to him, she should look bellow a certain portrait in the house.
In that place was a key and a picture with the master, the mother and Akane.
Agent and Akane fight over the key, so not to tell Mc about it but he found them fighting and demanded an explanation. Agent and Akane half lied half told the truth about the incident, but Mc is not stupid, after seeing the picture he figured out.
So now there are two heirs for the fortune.
This didn't stop the Mc and told his now sister maid that he didn't care and kind of knew all along that they were siblings always wanted to get her out of the house. He then tells her to forget everything and to come with him to America, but she rejected him and ran... to have some time alone to think.
Soon after, thinking about everything, Mc discovered the secret behind the key and the portrait and took out what was hidden inside.
After he met with butler, showed a picture that had him, his mother and the young butler behind and made him confess... Mc asked if he was his real father, thing that butler stopped him on.
Then both came back to the topic... why did he killed all the maids...
He confessed he did it out of anger because the maids tried to harm him, the heir, for their own reasons, things that should be taboo for a servant to harm the master out of whim or selfishness so he thought that punishment was necessary.
Then butler said to take out the bodies and give the report to the police. Mc hesitated at first but Butler told him that he already called the police and was going to give himself in.
That night, sister maid came to his room and after a lot of thought... she accepted his request and also made a request of her own to take her. He hesitated but she begs for him to take her as her wish, since she was wishing to be with him all along.
They proceed to have a sweet night of passion involving incest to show their love to one another.
And the next day they were going to America as promise.
However, the next day Akane was nowhere to be found (At this point i was wishing hard for the sister to at least survive, but after seen this scene my heart sank... thankfully i worried for nothing).
Mc could not find sister anywhere, then Agent Sayo confronted him and put him at ease. She confessed to be a secret agent working for the government and took Akane into a protection program because since it was discovered that she is a second heir, there was going to be conflict between the nobles and the duke so for her safety she was taken into custody.
But Agent Sayo promised that she would try to do what she can to bring her back to him but he had to give her time.
One year later, Mc was back in America with his company when he received a Christmas card from Sayo for a surprise.
Mc ran quick to the airport and received his beloved childhood friend turned sister slash lover and both embraced tenderly.
The film ends with Agent Sayo receiving a new mission and giving her good byes to Saionji, lamenting that they will not meet again.
CONCLUSION AND ANALYSIS
Boy... this film threw me in a loop... after the first plot twist of the glasses maid being murdered, i sat there shocked not wanting to believe creators actually did that. My questions were: "But wasn't she the main heroine? She is in the cover after all!"
And i confess that after that I was hooked. H-scenes be damned I wanted to see the story instead! So i finished this for the story and the H-scenes was just a nice add on the side.
Like I mentioned; this film feels more like a drama than a porn flick.
But I am really angry... how dare they kill all those maids! That was a pretty bad waste of maids! That really made me disappointed... all those maids wasted... (pun intended).
But i have to admit the character development was awesome for being a hentai film.
The art was good, but the animation lacked a bit.
And the story was one awesome idea that hooks you up!
All that time I was screaming in my mind "Who is the culprit" over and over again!
I am glad i sat down to watch this, the hour and half of this film was not wasted at all.
So i am proud to say that this was a masterpiece...
However I will give it a 5 on overall because creator killed all the maids >.>
And you do not kill the maids!!!!
(I have a maid fetish, sue me!)
One of the reason i decided to watch this film was because of the maids, specially the cute one with glasses... BUT SHE IS DEAD!!! GOD DAMMIT!!!
Anyways... I recommend this film to you all if you want a hentai flick with one awesome plot that would keep you in suspense and then relax you a bit with h-scenes.
Ok, ok! I will give it a 9 for overall! I know i am being unfair with a 5! But I will not give a full 10 because I am still mad for killing off the maids!
In the argument of subs vs dubs, everyone is entitled to their own opinion (even if you are a filthy dub-loving anime fan). Hopefully these are ten English dubbed anime that we can all agree are horrible - no matter what your persuasion.
