Is this anime a conundrum or a cryptogram? If you think anime titles can't spoil the story any further, well you have been proven wrong. The creator, Hanamaluo, defies all logic by naming the anime Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita or The Man in Wolf's Clothing. By doing so, he cleverly displays the underlying context of the anime. Though the anime is
advertised as a romantic ecchi anime in reality it's a hentai anime about a male university crossdresser sexually assaulting a high school lesbian chick over and over again in the name of love. Talk about a cryptogram.
The story starts off with the MC, Shizuka, a shy high school girl visiting a mixer to meet men despite not liking men. She steps out and is greeted by a university girl (cross-dresser), Ryou, who gets her drunk, takes her back to his room and has his way with her. However, next morning the girl is okay with it and as the show goes on, they have more encounters, each more bizarre than the previous. The guy confesses his feelings to her (not love just like) and the girl remains confused throughout but allows the guy to just have his way with her. No consequences whatsoever. What a conundrum.
Since this is an anime short, let's just look at the positives and negatives of this anime. The MC, Shizuka is completely a baseless character. Just because she is shy doesn't mean she has to have zero moral sense, lack any personality and gives in to everything in the name of orgasm. The crossdresser, Ryou, is a child molester who in the name of love, goes around molesting and sexaully assaulting the MC in the store, in the bathroom, in the Ferris wheel, heck even in the train because what better way to show someone you are a boyfriend candidate than making them orgasm in public. The story is horrible since it feels like a horny teenager wrote their voyeuristic sexual fantasy of public sex. Seriously, whoever said this show has mild nudity and slightly ecchi, clearly lied because every episode has nudity and sex scenes. The moaning sounds are just over the top unrealistic with how high pitch it is and the quality of animation slowly degrades as the anime goes on. It's almost as if the studio realizes how big of a lawsuit the network will give them after they find out they aired hentai on TV under the false pretense of ecchi. The show doesn't have an OP song and the ED song is just meh.
Overall, this ecchi (hentai) anime short is not really worth watching because everything is just pixelated. If you want to waste an hour watching hentai then just go watch hentai. Don't waste your time watching this hybrid of ecchi and hentai. Maybe they are trying to open a new genre and take the HBO route but to do that you have got to improve the story, the characters, the animation and even their background score to establish the new hybrid genre. Also, If you are not okay with hentai and non-consensual sex, then this anime is not for you. Anyways, if you are still curious about this cryptogram of an anime short filled with conundrums then definitely check it out let me know later how you like it.
P.S. Thank you for reading. I hope you found this short and supaishi review helpful!
This anime is an enigma. Regardless of whether you're a hentai fan or an ecchi lover (or both), odds are you're going to come out of Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita with some rather mixed feelings. If you're not interested in either of the two though, you should probably stay away.
As the synopsis states, this is basically a short anime about a crossdressing guy (Ryou) who ends up seducing a shy girl (Shizuka) at a college mixer, leading to the start of a rather strange relationship. The guy's reasons from crossdressing are eventually explained, but beyond that there isn't much in the way of
story here other than an abundance of intimate and sexual encounters between the two of them. And those erotic moments make up the main focus of the series.
Here's the weird thing though: this anime is basically a hybrid between an ecchi anime and a hentai. I'm not sure exactly how this happened because it was evidentially aired on TV, but the content in it is undeniably 18+ in nature. At first you could argue it was just an abnormally lewd ecchi show, but when it started revealing close-up shots of Shizuka's pixelated vagina and showing detailed footage of Ryou fingering her and making her cum... there was just no room for argument anymore. In the final episode they even have explicit sex where both of their pixelated genitals are shown. It's undeniable at this point: this is pornography.
Now I don't have a problem with hentai nor ecchi so I'd be fine with this either way (plus it's more unique like this), but this hybrid design brings with it a different set of issues instead. In short, the main problem with Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita is that you're basically forced to see it as a hentai, but in that case it's the most softcore and toned-down hentai you'll ever see. Not only do most of the "sex scenes" consist of basically nothing but fondling, fingering and close-up shots, but these episodes are only 4 minutes and 30 seconds each (discounting ED time), and only maybe half of that at best covers the actual sexual content. I don't know about you, but having merely around 2 minutes' worth of what was already some very tame lewds doesn't really result in the best fap material to me. And really what merit does a hentai have if I can't get off to it? I mean it's not like the story is anything to speak of here exactly.
On the other hand if I try to force myself to think of this as an exceptionally lewd ecchi anime (like let's say Kiss x Sis), then it still fails because while the erotic content is unusually intense by ecchi standards, the show gives me absolutely no reason to care about the characters or anything else going on. This kind of absolute focus on explicit sexual content without any real attempt at characterization is a trait only found in hentai, so it's quite difficult looking at this anime as anything else. In other words regardless of whether you consider Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita to be smut or pornography, it doesn't do a particularly good job either way.
That said I still kind of enjoyed watching it solely because of how weird it was. I've watched a lot of ecchi and hentai over the years, but I've never seen an anime quite like this before. I thought it was genuinely interesting seeing just where the hell the show would end up going next, which in combination with its short runtime made it a relatively easy watch despite everything. I honestly had no idea how I was supposed to rate it though but I eventually decided on a 5/10 for at least being a unique and interesting experience even though it ultimately failed at accomplishing whatever purpose it may have originally had. Think of it as an experimental anime more than anything else; though one which I somehow doubt we'll see a whole lot of similar works to in the future. Then again we've gotten one supposedly similar anime announced for the upcoming season already, so what do I know.
Only for ecchi lovers as its basically a hentai! Wouldn't be surprised if found this on some hentai site. The female lead is kinda shy whereas the male lead seems like a playboy as he forces himself on her whenever he feels like it. There is not much of a story as most of it is lewd scenes..... The sound and art is really good whereas there is not much of a character development. The episodes are really short like 3-4 minutes. Well if you love anime like High School DXD then i guess you'll love it!!
The MAL description is spot on: It's an anime about a cross-dressing guy that wants to seduce a (shorter than average) female college student that doesn't really like men. It can be described as a 'half-hentai' show, as it has a fair amount of regular story/plot while mixing in lewd scenes and the interesting quirks of hentai at the same time.
Half of the story focuses on sexual interactions (as you can probably tell from the cover), so if you don't like that kind of thing, this show probably isn't for you.
The art and sound is good (although some animation might not look as smooth as
a fully-funded TV series), and there's a fair amount of story (it has a plot that has progression). The main negative points are that the episodes are pretty short (since it's a web-series) and that it's split into two versions: standard and R-18.
The standard version runs for 3min45sec while the R-18 version runs for 4min45sec.
The standard version is basically just the R-18 version with the lewd scenes cut out. The lewd scenes rarely have much dialogue, so you aren't missing that much story if you watch the standard version.
If you expect this show to be a half-hentai with a cross-dressing male and regular female, this anime is pretty solid. It might be worse in story compared to something like Clannad or something, but it's like comparing apples and something that isn't apples.
If you don't expect anything outside of the MAL description, it's a good anime.
Also, make sure you get the version that you want (standard/R-18).
