Pigeon Blood tells the story of a guy who lost his memory and for some reason is the "master" of a mansion full of sex slaves. Some other day, the main guy is intercepted by a cute girl who surprisingly asks him to let her be his slave, and she'll do whatever for him. Based on a game by Abogado Powers.
The art wasn't bad, considering it's time (and the fact that most - if not all - hentai has particularly bad animation), however, the story was utterly tactless. Not to mention Episode 2 is quite... well, if you decide to ignore me, and go ahead and watch it, don't watch it at night.
All in all, it either made you laugh (but not in a good way), or cry (definitely not in a good way), and you could have spent your time doing something much more productive.
Happy New Year everyone! What better way to bring in the New Year than reviewing another god awful hentai from the bowels of Hell? This is the amazing story of Pigeon Blood!
Pigeon Blood has everything you could possibly look for in a Z-Grade, 1/10 hentai.
Horrible animation? Check
Unattractive character art? Check
Sex scenes that would kill a 20 Viagra erection? Check
Nonsensical plot? Check!
No name, shit studio? Check. AT-2 apparantly
The plot is that a man wakes up with amnesia and is informed by his servants that he's an evil overlord that runs a mansion full of sex slaves. Our MC is rather pleased to hear this news
and commences to rape, torture, and kill the slave girls. So...what was the point of him having amnesia? There was no point! It's an anime, so let's have amnesia thrown in! Then our MC gets bored and invites a few dozen evil rich dudes to come join his torture/murder party. Wait a minute....did Eli Roth direct this hentai?! Nah...the dialogue was too good.
Pigeon Blood prides itself on being a "Guro" hentai. I always thought this word was from a Japanese pronunciation of "gore". In fact, it's derived from the word "Grotesque". That's why Guro isn't just blood and guts. It also tends to involve vomit, needle torture, and of course poop. Lots of poop. I've watched many anime that I would describe as shit, but half of Pigeon Blood is literally shit!
Unlike the last hentai I reviewed, there are credits for this one! Some people were apparently proud enough of this masterpiece to add their names to it. The composer for Pigeon Blood also did the soundtracks for Sekirei and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha. Speaking of which, the director of Nanoha was Akiyuki Shinbo and he spend the early 2000s making hentai for AT-2! We also know that Shinbo is a guro fan and admitted to directing the guro hentai Blood Royale in 2002 for AT-2. I don't have direct proof that Shinbo also directed Pigeon Blood, but I'd be willing to bet money on it. So there is a high probability the director of Bakemonogatari and MAL's favorite elitist Shogi anime made this shit. (scratches chin). Maybe Pigeon Blood was actually highly intellectual all along and I was just too casual to see it! The word is out! Pigeon Blood is ELITE! Add to your 3x3s on /a/ immediately.
This is a great example of art in hentai, while having everything fit the emotional and physical environment very well. The ending makes you think about what you just watched, it will always be my 2nd favorite hentai.
Pigeon Blood is an anime based on the game by Abogado Powers. It starts off with a man, the main character, remembering the period of time of about six months ago, and claiming he knows everything now; unfortunately, this is the beginning of a plot thread that is left dangling, one that was not left hanging down in the original game.
Events in the past start when, watching a slave's training, the main 'hero' (Chris) sees a girl, which gives him a headache. Later, when the slave is brought back to the house, the girl he saw has come with, and begs for a place, willing
to do anything.
This begins the story, which, while in the game actually led to some drama and development, the anime OAV seems to just use as an excuse for kinky sex. The animation, given the time frame, should have been better (Pigeon Blood the game came out in, what, 2002?), but looks like it was made in the 90s. There is even an instance of a missing cel.
Plusses come in the fact that the anime has a decent sound setup. Creepy music, building sounds and effects, random noises; all these build up the drama that SHOULD be inherent in the story. The story should have been a plus as well, but where the game holds fast to it, the anime chooses to go the route of a gangbang.
Negatives come in the fact that the overall story feels incomplete. It is like they could have told the story in 2 chapters, but didn't, planning a longer arc that they never got a chance to complete.
All, in all, avoid it if you can't enjoy the remaining psychological elements that managed to exist in the transit between game and anime.
