Moko is a masseuse who gives her males clients a special massage guaranteed to help them release all of their stress. Of all the women in her profession, Moko is one of the most popular. Her secret is simple, she enjoys pleasing the men she gives her special massages to just as much her clients receiving the pleasure.
There is no real overarching plot. If anything, "Soap no Moko-chan" plays out more like a series of short segments or sketches, all featuring the same characters. It's clear that "Soap no Moko-chan" isn't just a straight up porn, but more of a sex comedy, just featuring a
lot more explicit sex than the average sex comedy would.
But is any of the comedy any good? While it's not terrible, it's not all that great either. Considering some of the hentai and ecchi that I've slogged through, "Soap no Moko-chan" looks like gold in comparison, so it's not really saying much. Maybe it's just one of those things that because it was made 25+ years ago, it isn't as good in retrospect, despite being great at the time.
Maybe the manga that this was based on was a lot better, but I wouldn't know because I couldn't find any scans of it online, nor could I find any physical copies. And I imagine those would be incredibly expensive even if I could find them, considering the conversion rate and shipping costs.
But what about the sex, since that's why anyone would watch this to begin with, is that any good? It's nowhere the worst sex that I've seen in a hentai, but I could easily point to several hentai from the 90s that are several steps up over this. I imagine that the reason anyone would want to watch this to begin with is the comedy part of this, as it seems to focus on that just as much, if not more than the sex.
Hilariously enough, the credits for the English version are cocky enough to call this "Part 1". Considering that I couldn't find any evidence of a "Part 2" ever existing, I doubt that it ever made it to production. Someone higher up involved in the production was really hoping that this did well enough that they could make more, but saw that the sales weren't doing so hot. This was based on a manga, a lot of which obviously went unadapted, so there was plenty to work with.
The best way to sum up "Soap no Moko-chan" is "You can do better, you can do worse."
