The dream of Seiji Yasaka, a ronin, is to become a doctor, something which he wants so badly to fulfill that he joins a hospital as a part-time corpse washer. He falls in love with Nurse Yuuki Midou, but Chigusa Tsuyusaki, the hospital's deputy director, wants him for her own. Everything goes well until suddenly he realizes that all of the nurses are in fact dead bodies—part of a project to bring them back to life—and then he finds out that he is also already one of the walking dead. With the walking dead, the body isn't a problem, but the mind on the other hand gets corrupted easily…
I'll start off by saying this anime is targeted toward a pretty niche audience. It contains a variety of fetishes including drugging, necrophilia, some enema play, bondage, rape, quite a bit of cum, guro, and a bit of inflation as well. While the show does touch on a number of these things, there is a focus on the necrophilia aspect which makes it a must see for those with that inclination. It's definitely at the forefront of its kind in that respect.
I felt that the animation here was pretty average or slightly above. I wish it could have been better, but at the same
time nothing really got on my nerves.
I was pleasantly surprised by the music. The OP has a somewhat haunting feel to it that really sets the mood considering the show's content. I think the music did a good job adding weight to the story's atmosphere, intensity, and unpleasantness at the proper times.
There was a decent assortment of characters here: the somewhat average guy who is a bit hesitant about his new job washing corpses, the seemingly detached guy who works too many nightshifts, the nympho doctor, the cheery and somewhat cute romantic interest, the cute and willing nurse, and then another nurse who is a bit of a mixed bag.
I liked following the protagonist in episode 1 as he struggled to get accustomed to his new job and come to terms with the strange things in his head. He devolves to quite the monster in very little time and is pretty enjoyable to watch. Unfortunately none of the characters really left their mark on me, but I feel they served their purpose. The real treat of this anime is the content.
I watched this RAW, so I may have missed out on some of the finer points, but I felt that I could follow things pretty easily. The plot setup is pretty simple: a young guy gets a job cleaning up corpses in a hospital and unwittingly becomes a doctor's guinea pig as she develops a kind of hallucinogenic sex drug. The stage is then set for a sexual rampage with some pretty trippy (and disturbing) hallucinations as icing on the cake.
I'm a fan of depravity and this anime delivered. I thoroughly enjoyed the hallucinations and the very very disturbing content found during some of the sex scenes. I was also treated to one of the most magnificent anal rape scenes ever. It reminded me of Dragon Ball Z when a guy is screaming and powering up, except this was an orgasm. The music really tipped the balance and I think this scene in particular is among my favorite choreographed sequences in animation right up there with the frog dissection scene from Ichi the Killer: Episode 0. Toward the end of episode 3, I was feeling quite pleased and just a bit unsettled, which is usually the sign of a good show ^_^
For fans of guro and necrophilia this is truly a gem of a hentai and a favorite of mine within the genre.
After finishing this anime, I am left thinking two things... "What the actual hell did I just watch?" and "Why did I waste my time on this?" Not worth the watch for the hentai, not worth the watch for the disturbed druggy crap.
The story line is an embarrassment. Absolutely terrible. It was impossible to follow, especially the final two episodes. The "drugs" concept was translated very poorly and was very corny. I can't imagine how this story line could have been worse... well, maybe if their heads blew up with scat and if they added Larry King and the Nesquik bunny.
The sound wasn't terrible, just
really annoying. Some of the girls gave me an earache. To be fair, squeaky voices are common in hentai. To each their own.
The characters are completely brain dead personality wise. Hell, I couldn't tell you all of their names. The most tolerable character is the other male from the beginning of the first episode who also "body washes". I wish I could say the females were likable in the first episode but my liking for them quickly turned to manure as the series progressed...
This was a chore to finish. There are a few scenes that are meant to be disturbing just completely failed. Nothing more, just a complete fail. No enjoyment at all.
Only reason this anime is receiving a 2 is because of the art, which wasn't too bad. The nurses were cute. Compared to other content from Pink Pineapple, Shitai wo Arau The Animation has better art than most.
Don't bother watching this. What little decent hentai scenes were in this anime are not enough to compensate pathetic characters and a pathetic story line. This isn't as disturbing (at least for me) like others have said, it is simply dreadful.
I don't know why people are complaining about that this hentai is "really messed up" or "The goriest hentai ever made". It's so tame, and hot. I fucking love it, the story is really unclear. Nobody knows what's happening in the story, but it's just so hot. It isn't that gory or bloody, I was really disappointed. The only good gore scene is the part where some bitch gets her body melted by acid.
But overall, it's great.
Story is completely shit, no explanation. Doesn't even try.
Art is great.
Sound is fine.
The character is great, love the characters. Especially the main protagonist.
Enjoyment was just outstanding. I really loved
it, I cummed so often watching this.
It's great but it needs to explain the story better, and have some more twisted/gory scenes.
A masterpiece or a total disaster? I would say the latter.
Shitai wo Arau has the pieces to be a philosophical masterpiece about Human lust and desires but decides to focus more on normal hentai.
The story is pretty straightforward for the first episode. It starts to get confusing in the second episode and by the third episode you're left confused what's actually happening. But in the end you (kinda slightly) know what actually happened.
The story needed to be told in a way that a normal viewer would understand the story without trying to find summaries about the story online.
was great in the mindfuck scenes and the MC genuinely looked scary and threatening. The corpses looked pretty creepy and disturbing too. However the hentai was kinda mediocre, the animation was minimal during the sex scenes and there were several scenes that were just looped for several seconds.
Nothing to say about the sound or soundtrack to be honest, not good and not bad, mediocre all over.
They really should've fleshed out the characters. You know so much about the characters that you won't even remember their names after finishing the series. The main character was the only developed character and his development was a bit flat too.
I enjoyed it more as ironic memery than as actual hentai. The dick slapping scene was absolute comedy gold and some of the stuff was do ridiculous you couldn't help but to laugh at it.
Shitai wo Arau has the potential to be great but falls flat on its ass. I'd recommend to watch it if you like necrophilia even though there kinda isn't any in the show, mindfuckery and/or you want to watch it for the memes.
