Many times i had to tell myself, "This is not real, this is not real, this is not real".
But I can't... because things like this happens for real, specially on countries outside western region, and mostly japan.
This story centers around a shoplifting girl out of a dare and ended up becoming a sex slave from one of the teachers that caught her.
Which ends with a sad tale of another girl breaking and ending a sex addict and sex slave...
It hits me hard because I've read so many articles of victims like this and ending on extortion and prostitution.
I really hate when scumbags win... and there
is no justice for the victim. Because many in real life arent so lucky either.
The story... 5/10: its your typical generic blackmail sex abuser that used something (shoplift in this case) to get his way with the school girl. And since she is scared to be taken to the authorities she succumbs to nor face public humiliation. (That is taboo in japan).
Art 10/10: aside everything, i liked the artwork for this flick. Its simple and normal and not obnoxious.
Sound 8/10: the voice acting is good. but sf are generic.
character 7/10: the plan for the characters and the circumstances are generic.
Enjoyment 3/10: I hate then scumbags win and there is no justice. Enough said.
Overall a 5: it reminds me of poor victims of real life so it doesn't let me fully enjoy this film.
Let me tell you something: (All this was taken from actual fact reports and article i researched over the net after personal incidents).
We all know that japan is a society of shame...
and women prefer to let themselves be raped before facing public humiliation about it...
Its worst! Even if they ask for help and the police intervene... the police themselves public humiliate the woman and even dares to say that its her fault, she did something to deserve it. People around begins pointing and treating them as scum even if its not her fault...
So why ask for help if you still loose?
(This is confirmed by actual articles I've read).
Let me start explaining... Women in japan are treated as second class since its a machismo society with hypocrisy. Women are taught since childhood to be submissive and quiet and shut up everything they are done to them else they will face public humiliation and that is taboo to a japanese person.
That's why you see women who gets molested in trains keep quiet when they are under it... because if they scream or ask for help the police scold the woman instead of the guy, says its her fault. And also adds that she provoked "public harmony".
Even worst! People, and EVEN THE POLICE blame the woman victim saying it was her fault in the first place... That she did something to provoke being raped. WHERE IS THE JUSTICE!
Women who fall victim to these type of crimes in japan have 3 options:
1) Commit suicide to escape such torment and the post traumatic stress disorder.
2) Continue living as a whore or prostitute because they feel worthless and no one will take them in so the only way to continue on after their reputation is tarnished is continue in a brothel.
3) Become sex slaves; to anyone or to the perpetrator itself which mostly happens in the cases.
Many, specially the sex slaves, become sex addict and nympho maniacs so they just love sex and will go to who ever gives it best to regarding who...
Most of them end up as nymphos and will never learn and know what real love is.
This is why this story's sad ending is realistic... because its one of the options to a innocent girl fall victim of these and never will receive help...
and I hate these injustices!
