I really have to split this review into two parts since this 'movie' is really a combo of 2 standalone parts: Tsuukin Kairaku Chikan de Go! and Kaihoku.
Tsuukin Kairaku Chikan de Go!
Art - 7
Nothing spectacular but pretty good and accomplishes what it set out to do.
Sound - 8
The music was a good choice for ambience..kind of a soothing electronica at first, and picking up tempo as the action progressed. The voice acting was pretty enjoyable as well even if the dialogue wasn't anything outstanding. I personally liked the Narrator's lead in lol.
Characters - 9
Honestly the protagonist is at the forefront of the genre. His smirk and dismissive "hmmph" are truly world-class and I love how he warms up his hand as he scopes his prey. The other passengers on the train represented a pretty decent variety of people as well: the typical victim, the confident woman with a steely gaze, and the of course the token girl who actually wants to be molested. I actually loved how the protagonist lost interest when he realized her interest..it shows the man is a true sportsman with some class who's looking to truly test his skill. I also loved the old man who had the crappy technique lol.
Story - 9
Tsuukin Kairaku is a great introduction to the Chikan theme. It keeps things traditional without resorting to the typical rationalization and justification of saying all women want to be molested. This show also covered a large amount of ground in 19 minutes by showing 3 different scenarios: success, failure, and the tables turn.
Enjoyment - 9.5
I loved the protagonist, the music, and the overall theme. I'm a traditionalist as far as train molestation goes, meaning it should be molestation period. Trying to say the women actually want to be molested is the typical explanation, but to me it just diminishes the value and intensity of the experience.
Overall - 9
Art - 7
Same as before
Sound - 8
Pretty good musical score on this as well and it did a pretty good job of using the right music at the right time.
Characters - 5
Pretty weak, there really just wasn't a strong protagonist to carry this episode. I did like how the ringleader woman did the trademark Chikan smirk. She even did that thing where she licked her lips lol. The emphasis in this show was on the victims more than the perpetrator, and this wouldn't have been a bad thing...except they are pretty much whores who gave in easily. There was really no effort expended here by either party and it left me feeling a bit disappointed.
Story - 5
There seemed to be a bit of potential when the teacher was browsing the mysterious website and saw one of her students on it having a gangbang lol. This set up a bit of a mystery feel for this episode as the teacher sought to discover the truth. The story ultimately took a downward turn with the lack of resistance put up. Their pathetic "iiyaa"s seemed more for show than purpose.
Enjoyment - 2
This episode really just didn't appeal to me, but then again I am more of a traditionalist as far as Chikan. If you are more open to different takes on the Chikan theme then you might like this more than I did
Overall - 3
Conclusion - 6
I had to kind of average out the scores here and the enjoyment factor of episode 2 kinda killed it for me.
However, I would highly recommend the first episode for any Chikan enthusiasts out there as it does a very great job introducing the basic concepts ^_^
