Keisuke Iwasaki is a popular high school PE teacher by day and the notorious "Rapeman" at night. As a masked avenger, he collaborates with his uncle, a former surgeon, to dispense his brand of justice on behalf of clients who seek the assistance of their business, "Rapeman Services." Be it exacting vengeance on an ex-lover, mending the relationship between a daughter and her parents, or suppressing the anger of a disgruntled employee, Keisuke never falters in completing his assigned contracts. Whenever corrupt women wander, the Rapeman arrives to forcibly change their sullied hearts.
Wait, that's not enough? I have to meet a character quota? Okay? Okay.
Mere mortals are not capable of producing such splendor. Truly, God witnessed the declining birth rate in Japan; He looked down upon the people and was greatly saddened. Satan had spread a plague of impotence throughout the land. The Lord God heard the cries of His desperate people. He descended upon the land of the rising sun in a glorious and sightly parade. The seraphim and cherubim cried with joy as they trailed behind Him. He thrust forth the massive and holy blade that dwells betwixt His legs
and begat this porn OVA from His heavenly seed. The people of the land of the rising sun trembled in great awe and fear. They could not meet the heavenly Creator's gaze. They saw the porn ova, and their impotence at once dissipated. They rejoiced and sang His heavenly praises. He smiled upon their humbled faces and said unto them "Take mine parables to heart. Go and do likewise." Amen.
Uhh yeah, it's kinda funny. A tongue-and-cheek "porn" ova. Suffers from a low budget; the animation is choppy and the sound design isn't terribly consistent. Parts of it drag, but I wouldn't call it boring or anything. Rapeman is most definitely the coolest superhero the Japanese have ever conceptualized, so for that reason it's worth checking out. More than anything it reminds me of Inferno Cop, so if you like Inferno Cop, you'll probably like Rapeman.
I really don't know where to start with this review or end. It's not even fitting. I don't understand how the other reviewer gave it such a commendable response. But it really doesn't deserve it. There are Japanese films that can fall very easily into this genre and they are far more commendable. A guy gets hired, mainly by rejected men or something---or he just takes it upon himself and he basically runs around raping women who seem to love it after ward.
It makes you question the morality of a society and the people who came up with it.
If I take it as a feminist that I am, I'm utterly offended. If I take it as tongue-in-cheek nonsense...well it's...fitting. Basically this story was developed to appeal to the adult male audience (no not the pubescent) so they can start reading mangas. I don't really think adult males need such story concepts in order to get into reading mangas. Berserk is a good example of good story with extreme themes.
In any event, as a manga it was a bomb---so it boggles my mind why it was turned into a mini-anime.
As a short analysis of each rated part of the anime, it's not going to be pleasant.
Story---there actually is a meaning as to why the guy does what he does. You just have to wonder how rape is a plausible teaching lesson. Is the story rich and developed and grasping...no---there's just violence and misogynistic behavior towards women.
Art---it's like that 80s style art from like yaoi hentai with the same style of music. You decide if you like it or not. I find that sort of thing really trite, like watching 70s porn or something.
Sound---Meh, all you hear is screams and squelching sounds. There isn't much dialogue to listen too.
Character----you get no real character development. But if I remember correctly, because it's been a while. I wanted him to hook up with his secretary I think. Love for a rapist?! I know, I know---the way these animes make you think...~sigh~
Enjoyment---I remember it, I can't say I enjoyed it since I found it an utter disappointment. Don't ask what I was thinking I would get from watching it. At this point I just put it down to me wanting to see as many animes as I could so I can say I watched them, even if they are crap.
Overall---it got hire than I thought it would. ^_^
Rapeman, A very serious pretty dope anime about a man that rapes women.
I cannot say how greatly I appreciated this one, It actually really dug at my heartstrings and not too tug too hard but on a few scenes I had actually almost cried, Just a few inches from crying.
So lets get into it, This anime is a must see for everything it has to offer. I personally enjoyed it and im not sure if you would feel the same love and compassion for it that I did but please try it just for the sake of saying that you have watched this masterpiece.
