The Trident Foundation controls the world's back alleys and darkest corners. It's boss, the ruthless Tojo, has an un-quenchable thirst for violence, sex and power. When he meets Rei-Lan, his sexual prowess takes her beyond her wildest fantasies. Four years later, they meet again as enemies. Will Rei-Lan extract her revenge on Tojo, or will their sexual bond prove too potent to resist?
Surprisingly, the art and animation is pretty decent for a low budget hentai from the 90s. Not quite as good as something like Word's Worth, or the hentai version of Mezzo Forte, but still pretty solid.
Thankfully, Orchid Emblem has enough foresight to only
be 45 minutes long. I can't imagine how much they would have stretched out the bare thin plot to the length of a movie or have multiple episodes. It would have stretched out the budget even thinner, and probably would have made the sex look awful. And I doubt that they would have filled that length with more sex scenes when they would probably have just used still shots of people talking where the animators wouldn't have to animate anything.
As usual, the English dub isn't too crash hot. Everyone sounds bored, and everything they say is in a monotone drone. Although, the script still manages to get in a few good cheesy one-liners, like "So, this is the end.... the end for you."
Orchid Emblem reminds me of all of those late night softcore porn that aired on Skinemax or HBO during the 90s, filled with awful plots, even worse acting, and were filled to the brim with some of the highest quality sleaze that those channels could offer.
At one point, the evil boss is having a threesome with two women in front of his butler, all while watching a sports event from his exclusive seating that is hiding him away from the view of everyone else in attendance. If you're going to be sleaze, at least be entertaining sleaze.
If you're looking for some older hentai to jerk it too, Orchid Emblem is a decent choice. If you're looking for some cheesy sleaze that's filled with one-lines, action scenes, and a laughably dumb plot, you could do a lot worse. I know that this would only appeal to a niche audience, but I imagine that niche audience might actually get something out of this.
