Welcome to my review of "Karen" ! I will try to sum up my thoughts about everything for this hentai as briefly as I can!
The story for Karen well generic is still fairly solid. The main character, Okawa Ryo, gets blackmailed by her fellow cheering squad members through threats of leaving the team. The story works for what it tries to accomplish and it does it fairly decently. it does however not really break the mold, which is why it only gets a 7/10 for story.
Now we start getting into the bad. When I try to judge hentai on art,
I always try to be as fair as possible and critique it based on the time it was made. Karen is fairly decent when it comes to it's art. If this was made several years ago, then I would definitely be praising the art. For a 2002 hentai though, it is simply "ok". Sadly I cannot say the same about the animation at all, it is absolutely appalling. The animation feels like it had no effort put into it and it can really turn you off from the experiences the art offers.
Again, if this was made in the early 90s, this would be getting high praise. In 2002 though, I would simply consider it "average".
Finally! Back to something good again! The character of Ryo is truly done well. Her personality is truly formidable and her development was amazing as well. With everything being stacked against her in the plot, it makes it even more entertaining to watch her character!
The contextually parts of this hentai are truly solid, like the characters and story. But it ultimately, falls very flat due to terrible animation and lackluster art and sound design.
Overall: 5/10! Average, don't watch it if you want to jack
