Onmyouji: Youen Emaki is a mysterious mess of a hentai. This stems from the awkward vibes the female MC, Seimei, gives off. Although the art is low quality, and the character development is dreadful since Seimei serves as an anchor, dragging everyone down, the music is spectacular for an old hentai and the detective/diviner aspect of the story has potential.
The music is the greatest part about this hentai. While it is not exactly stellar, its usage brings a very powerful sense of suspense and mystery. It's enough to bring those butterflies to your stomach, which is the reaction to a large threshold of a thrilling
experience. The ability for the use of music, and the absence of it, to permeate the entire series with this feeling is an incredible feat. However, where this hentai falls short is in its main purpose, to be a fap session.
The art is low quality, partly due to it being an old hentai, largely due to it lacking in sexiness. In terms of a hentai, it's sex scenes are very toned down. The music builds up a very powerful emotion, but the actual scenes are too weak to live up to the expectations of the buildup.
The characters development is cockblocked just as much as the subpar sexiness is a cockblock. Detective Hiromasa Miyamoto wants to understand Seimei Abe, but Seimei doesn't give him any opportunity to understand anything by doing bizarre things. While this is fine for a mystery anime, it's pretty annoying for a hentai. Seimei is completely unrelatable and a nuisance. Her attitude is that of a haughty queen who does whatever she wants with little to no explanation. It's not cute nor sexy like a himedere, it's just annoying/frustrating.
If Onmyouji: Youen Emaki completely dropped the hentai scenes and just made the series ecchi at most, this would actually be a fairly nice anime series for an old anime. It already has an interesting premise mixing detective mysteries and divine summoning. There is also a cast of potentially interesting characters that are not developed due to how short the hentai is.
Onmyouji: Youen Emaki would ironically be sexier this way, as it leaves more to the imagination--which is valuable in any kind of mystery story. Unfortunately, it does not take this route and the sex scenes end up feeling awkward.
If your into monsters/demons then this is the anime for you
The story its kinda common once you watch it you'll say its like I've seen this kind of anime. There are some unusual things too that's quite disturbing for me not the monsters but the characters itself
The art is good its has a good quality in it for a 2003 anime compared to others but it still has a few flaws that makes it above average
The monsters appearance are average. The only good ones are the main character and the gals others below average
There are multiple type of genres seen here,
theres bondage, monsters, yuri? (cause he's a hermaphrodite), forced/rape. For me I enjoyed some of it mostly the normal ones and the main lead masturbating are the hottest part. the bondage is average the rape (cause its with an old man) is average too. the yuri part is the ugliest part (luckily its censored so you really cant see it). the monster part are not too intense so its average too.
Onmyouji: Youen Emaki is centrality different form many others but is this separation good or just some thing that just should be left to the dark with demons.
The story is what really sets this hentai apart with cases involving demonic creatures of night i found my self listing to the story while doesn't completely crowd the hentai it was diffidently intended to be there for you to listen to this is rarely found in hentai and is a very nice touch. overall rating:7 above usual hentai norms
As many of us all ready no this is a very important part of
this genre. Well the art work is kind of gloomy using dark lighting and overtones to give the the environments atmosphere, which would work if it wasn't in the hentai department. This doesn't ruin the hentai scenes just can make for too dark areas some times.Overall rating 5.7
The characters ok there just weren't enough of them this should have had few more normal girls in here however ti wasn't empty they just had 5or6 which is pretty low for today's hentai. the characters aren't evoling since it's only a two part hentai but it the main female character is interesting. The main male lead is just kind of there is you really notice too much him which i dount you will care.Overall rating 6
Enjoyment( the hentai scenes):
well they are not just your typical happy sex scenes ranging from demon rape to tentacle rape. girls are all good looking with average detail on each girl.Overall rating 7
