'Sentakuya Shin-chan' (English - 'Dirty Laundry') is a hentai animation produced by the same studios that made series like 'Consenting Adultery' and 'Boobalicious'. If you're familiar with those titles, you'll know what to expect. Indeed, Dirty Laundry is very similar to those two with a decent (most importantly plausible) plot, realistic setting and of course fluid and precise art.
The setting is a suburb of your typical large Japanese city. The story centers around Shinji, a local laundryman who goes around offering his... huh, services to the good people in his neighborhood. Well it just so happens that most of his neighbors are frustrated housewives. The
entirety of this 2 episode series focuses on him giving the women what their husbands couldn't give them and that's of course sexual satisfaction. In addition, there's also a slight romantic element added in and that's about Shinji trying to express his love to his manager who happens to be... *drum rolls* a young window. Nothing too spectacular, it's been done many times before (most notably in 'Consenting Adultery') and might seem like a tired formula. However, the story does alright considering it's given only 60 minutes and half of that is sex scenes.
Moving on, the art here is crisp and for the most part, accurate. The characters have voluptuous figures and the hentai features a wide variety of positions and themes - even a bit of bondage. Also interesting to note is that this hentai has been licensed outside Japan (praise the US) and as such the censor has been removed. Yes, it is uncensored.
The music featured here somewhat resembles metal. You will hear drum beats and a distinct tone of a guitar. This music however doesn't appear in every scene and is mostly reserved for more hardcore escapades, so to speak. The rest of it is just your pop/techno run-of-the-mill mix that you'd be hard pressed not to find in a porn flick. As for voice acting - it is decent though there really isn't that much in the way of dialogue here. The sex scenes are separated only by brief conversations or narrative of the male character.
All in all, a good hentai. The story isn't really anything new but it holds its own. It presents the viewer with something that could and probably did happen somewhere out there and that works for me. Art is really good as is the sound. Enjoyment factor here is relatively high though it will depend on whether the viewer likes his/her h-works with a strong plot or not. And as I said before it's not bad but it's not really that strong either.
