Lieri Bishop, an up-and-coming New Solars Commander and her aide, Major Naomi Evans board a battleship to earth to report the Neo Terrors' crimes to the Universal Federeation. The captain of the ship who is of the Neo Terrors, Donny Bogan, has had a grudge on them since four years ago when they had sabotaged a kidnapping mission on earth and got him arrested. So he has his chance and brainwashes them. Now when the lights change in the battleship, their personalities switches to one that suits the crew and thats when the "sexual" party begins...
This is done by none other than Teruaki Murakami(God of Hentai)and his latest work is just Awesome. The best one of his works yet and there's still one more episode to go.
The story was ok, nothing really special to mention out here, but it would be interesting if they continued the animation with Kangoku Senkan 2.
The art is absolutely amazing, you'll never find another anime with smooth animation like this(other than Murakami's of course). No one else can show how a man's nice, slippery "banana" would easily slide in and out of a pretty, lubricious mouth like he does.
The sounds are pretty decent and
it even has a great Op in it. The way that they are moaning will definitely get you hot for this. The unforgettable cries of pleasure will always remain in your head after watching this Hentai.
For characters you get two respected officers who are about to get fxxk'd into oblivion. They are both tsundere like, but Naomi is more of the hothead; Lieri is more calm and can control herself.(well at least in some ways;D)
This was very enjoyable to watch, and i cant wait to see more. Tentacle haters should be happy since the closest thing to tentacles in this are brainwashing cables and wires.
So, overall this was great to watch and i find myself watching it again and again. If I would compare this to Taimanin Asagi then i would say TA has a nice solid animation, but Kangoku Senkan's animation is more smooth and the lines aren't as visible as they are in TA. If you really like monster and tentacle F'king, then Taimanin Asagi might be better for you, but overall Kangoku Senkan is the one wins in the end.
Sadly this is filled with weird, close up shots, jerky movements that are too fast to enjoy and occasionally a weird wavering shot. Additionally they apparently saw the need to alter some of the better scenes of the game to include the artist's obsession with nose hooks.
This really couldn't be more perfect. This easily gets a 10 out of 10. The art is absolutely beautiful, the mosaic censorship is not excessive, the story is good, and the ending is good.
I've seen a lot of brain washing hentai, this one really isn't that unique: personality erased and replaced through brain washing and sex drive increased 1000%. It's pretty common in sci-fi hentai, but, this one is just great.
The plot is also Gundam like, which is awesome: space colonies vs the earth. Weapons reminded me of GITS lol It's really interesting, but, there is so much fucking, that you probably won't care
too much on your first view.
Almost every scene is a fairly rough gangbang scene. The entire Sagant crew gather and fuck the two women into a sloppy mess. The art is gorgeous, but, the animation is not for everyone, as this is a Teruaki Murakami hentai, so wandering camera, and extremely fast thrusting.
However, the animation is nothing like Dark Love for instance: fast forward type look.
I am a big fan of his strange hentai style though, so there is nothing bad to be said about this hentai.
I've been actively immersed in eroge, ero-manga, ero-anime etc for probably around ten years now. In that time, I've tried to get a peek at every ero-anime I could come by (too many eroge and ero-manga to keep up with for my taste). In my opinion, ero-anime really took off quality-wise around the 90's, like La Blue Girl, New Angel and Words Worth, and then sort of tapered off when one episode or two episode ero-anime series became the norm. Of course, there have been one/two episode series that I enjoy, mostly because of their unique character designs, like Foxy Nudes, Lover-in-Law and The Two
Facials of Eve.
Ever since Dark Love came out, I've been a huge Teruaki Murakami fan. I'd seen some of his earlier works before, but the hardcore animation and scenes in Dark Love was a big revelation to me.
As far as Prison Battleship goes, I've briefly played the Lilith eroge.
Art & Animation
All right, finally the review! You've probably already gleaned from above that I consider art/animation the most important aspect of ero-anime. If I had to specifically choose, I'd say animation is a little more important than art.
The color scheme stays true to the game. Everything is gray (Yes, I'm American), purple and blue. There are some scenes that are almost entirely green and in shades of black, but it helps to separate it out of all the depravity. There's not much variety here, but that just means animation is even more noticeable. Backgrounds are appropriate for space and onboard a ship.
Some CG work is incorporated, mostly for the ship and mechanical designs, but it's in no way a major selling point.
The lighting is subdued, more so than the original game, and Teruaki Murakami uses a technique of panning the camera around while going in and out of focus (think of other Murakami series like Night Shift Nurses: Ren Nanase and Taimanin Asagi). After a while I barely noticed it, but I think it helps create a sense of insanity and disorientation.
Character designs take on a Murakami twist. They are interestingly shaded and there is some nice contrast. Because of the uniforms that the crewmen wear, sometimes it's hard to tell who is talking, but those characters play minor roles and it doesn't take away from the series. Everyone generally looks like the characters from the Lilith game, but sometimes the camera angles create weird proportional issues. For instance, the female characters' thighs will look too big or the face will look too wide. This was most noticeable in scenes where there was more talking than action. If you've seen any other recent Murakami series, you'll know that these characters are Murakami's.
The OP animation is cryptic and colorful. When you first see it, you're probably not sure how the series will go. There's not much animation here, and it's probably where you will see the most CG in the whole series.
Animation in the main part is fluid, fast and intense. You can see the ripples in the skin when the characters are being violated, a somewhat rare occurrence in ero-anime. Some might think that it's too fast, but I like that it's so crazy compared to other ero-anime. If you're familiar with any other Murakami series, you'll know this is a normal thing and almost to be expected. Sometimes there are discrepancies. Like in one scene a female character might be near a bed, but immediately the scene cuts and there's not a bed to be found. I didn't notice this until after a bunch of views.
As for ejaculation, I think Murakami has always been a leader in ero-anime with fluid and smooth money shots. They are also well drawn, and you can see the depth and dimension of the semen. It's not just completely white. However, they are a little different in Prison Battleship compared to his other series, where it was depicted as more of string cheese or Easy Cheese. Imagine you take the egg whites from a dozen eggs, stuff it into a bazooka and fire it. That's the cumshot, and there are a lot of them in this series. In fact, Lilith/Pixy initially advertised on their site the manifestation of the next-generation "Zaa-Jiru 1.5 System," roughly translated to "Cum-Juice 1.5 System." It would be nice if there is more continuity with fluids on characters from scene to scene to see the "damage," but that's a minor complaint.
Art & Animation: 10
The major characters are well portrayed. They all have unique voices and depict their character types well in both non-sexual and sexual scenes. You can tell how much of a change the female characters are undergoing throughout the series and how stressed they are just from their voices.
Sound effects are appropriate in sex scenes and do not detract from the animation. There are also nice sounds for stuff related to the ship, weapons etc.
There's also an opening song (Ai no Idia), which is rare for ero-anime. The lyrics seem like every other song I've heard, and I don't factor it much into the value of a song in anime. The vocals are clear and the beat is uplifting. The whole song doesn't particularly strike me as exceptional, but it isn't jarring and gives the show a little more production value.
There are two parts here: the background story leading up to the ero-anime and what takes part during the actual series.
The back story is pretty interesting since I'm a sucker for sci-fi type stuff: colonies in the future, galactic wars, political intrigue, bringing evildoers to justice etc. I think I'd be interested even if this wasn't ero-anime.
What happens during the actual Prison Battleship episodes is pretty much just every evil letch's wet dream: turn your pain-in-the-backside heroines into your sex slaves. The twist of using hypnosis is sort of interesting, but I'm not impressed.
The series didn't pretend it had much of a story, so I didn't mind it as much. Little plot developments come along just to keep the action fresh.
Story-wise and progression-wise, Prison Battleship does stay true to the original eroge. It even has two endings to sort of give it that eroge feel.
There are three main characters here, and the rest are really just window dressing. There's the male lead looking for revenge and the two females that are trying to ruin everything.
For the most part, I think the female characters are believable, and it really adds to the eroticism of sex scenes. This is also where the hypnosis twist helps, since the heroines' personalities are being changed. Without the hypnosis, I might be more inclined to think that the females are just weak.
The only complaint I have is that the male lead is too one-dimensional. There's really nothing to like about the guy. However, since he's so villainous, it makes the abuse of the females seem more believable.
Great sex scenes, varied scenes, different kinds of fetishes, an ero-anime that takes place in space and a series that Teruaki Murakami directed are just some reasons why Prison Battleship has great value. Buy it, rewatch it and recommend it to others!
But since it's an ero-anime, it probably has a little lower value than I would like.
I really like this series. If you've stuck through this whole review, you know how much of a Teruaki Murakami fan I am. I bought the whole four episodes on DVD and also almost all the digital versions. I probably will also get the box set when it comes out just to see more Teruaki Murakami bonus features.
I only wish there were more scenes! I'm immensely looking forward to the next ero-anime Murakami does. He better not retire yet.
If you like Teruaki Murakami, you'll probably also like this series. If you don't like Murakami, you're probably not going to enjoy this.
If you've never seen any of Murakami's stuff, I'd recommend going through the different series he's worked on just to see how he has progressed; starting with Sins of the Flesh, MeiKing, The Blackmail: Tomorrow Never Ends, Endless Serenade, Girl Next Door, Inmu 2: Flesh Dreams, Punishment, Ail Maniax, Princess 69, Seifuku Shojo The Animation, The Duchess of Busty Mounds, Dark Love, Night Shift Nurses: Ren Nanase, Night Shift Nurses: Kazama Mana, Night Shift Nurses: Yagami Yu and Taimanin Asagi. At any rate, it would be an interesting "history" lesson in ero-anime.
The notion of animated sex is no longer an isolated, foreign concept, but it is still an area of anime with a lot of stigma attached to it. Hentai is often seen as taboo and a perversion, but its origins in history and how it developed from there is a story unto itself.
