I’ve been quite busy lately and taking a break from reviews, but now I’m back! What better way to celebrate than by spotlighting another shitty and obscure anime? Last month was the US’s first ever LGBT Pride Month, so why not celebrate by reviewing a terrible Yaoi title? No, I’m not going to review Boku no Pico! This is the much more obscure “Boku no Sexual Harrassment!”
Yaoi is a genre of anime and manga in which extremely stereotypical gay men have sex for the viewing enjoyment of heterosexual women. It turns out there actually does exist a genre of manga written by
and for gay men, but that genre is called “Bara” and is considered too niche to warrant an anime adaptation. As a heterosexual male I have never bothered to watch or review a Yaoi before…until now.
Many movies have been spoofed and criticized for having poorly written female characters and male authors that don’t really understand how women talk and act. Boku no Sexual Harrassment on the other hand, is written by a woman with ZERO concept of male conversations, behavior, social customs, or basic anatomy (she thinks male anuses self-lubricate and “get wet” like vaginas). This actually makes the show rather hilarious as I will explain below.
“Story” (more like list of sex scenes):
We begin our amazing tale by introducing our twink character, who I swear to God looks like fucking Italy from Axis Powers Hetalia! Italy just got a job as a software developer for a major Japanese company and happens to have a huge crush on his boss. His boss is some dude that happens to bear an uncanny resemblance to Hajime Saito from Rurouni Kenshin and is voiced by the same VA as Jotaro in JJBA. I’m dead serious! Fortunately for Italy, Saito is also gay and thinks Italy is cute. Here is where the hilarity begins. Saito is supposed to be the “bear” gay with a design ripped off a badass character and voiced by one of the manliest voice actors in existence. Yet he is constantly delivering lines that you would expect from a shy girl character like Hinata from Naruto! The sheer dissonance hits like a punch to the face and creates some comedic moments. It’s like watching Clint Eastwood give a steely eyed stare and then utter, “P-P-Please notice me sempai!!!” The dialogue in this series is so bad it shifts from gut busting hilarious to physically painful.
Sex scene 1:
Saito decides to have his way with Italy during a business trip. Saito thinks it is cute that Italy wears pajamas and decides to fuck him. Sure, why not?
The next day, there is an important business meeting and the CEO of another company is an old gay dude that wants to bang Italy. Saito pimps out Italy to this old man in order to “sweeten the deal” and get the old man to buy more computer units.
Sex scene 2:
Italy gets raped by a creepy old man. That’s pretty much the whole scene.
The next scene involves Italy’s co-worker who ALSO happens to be gay and has a crush on Italy because why not? This dude sort of looks like Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star, so I find it amusing how they made him a complete bitch. He finds out that Italy and Saito are an item and runs off crying and flailing his arms like a 5 year old girl. For some reason I just find a Kenshiro lookalike doing that to be utterly hilarious.
There is a time skip and we are told that Italy has been promoted to manager. However, the new president of his company ALSO happens to be gay and wants to bang him. Given the new president does look like Freddie Mercury, so I guess his sexuality isn’t that big a shock.
Sex Scene 3:
Italy gets double-teamed by Hajime Saito and Freddie Mercury. That’s a sentence I’ve never used in a review before!
Italy moves to America and begins work for another large company. Italy’s new boss is an American that oddly enough looks like Ladd Russo from Baccano. It takes exactly 1 minute after his introduction for Ladd to drug Italy and start raping him.
Sex Scene 4:
Italy gets sodomized by many foreign objects including a wine bottle. Then Saito saves the day and rapes Ladd with a wine bottle…which he enjoys. The author DOES know that wine bottle penetration isn’t a thing in the gay community right? I’ve heard of skinheads murdering gay people in that fashion, but never as a pleasurable bedroom activity!
After some sex scenes that would lead to hospitalization or death if tried in real life, our mess of a porno ends with Italy and Saito together.
The character art is decent, while the animation is…not so much. This is a low budget porno title, so I’m not exactly the artwork to meet Studio Ghibli standards!
Generic porno background music that you won’t even notice while the episode is playing, let alone remember after it ends. A stark contrast to the wild freestyle saxophone during the sex scenes from Kite.
While Boku no Pico is the most infamous Yaoi of all time due to its pedophilia, Boku no Sexual Harassment just may be the most inept. Given I’m hardly a Yaoi expert, but this title gained infamy as one of the shittiest Yaoi titles in existence long before Pico was made. The ludicrously stupid scenarios, the fact EVERY male character is gay, the horrible dialogue, and total obliviousness to everything about men make this title a true heavyweight contender for bad Yaoi champion!
As my first yaoi, I was a bit hesitant when this title popped up on my screen, but nevertheless I was not disappointed.
Story - 10
This storyline was gripping, and though predictable, still brought a smile to my boner with every twist or turn in the anime. It kept at a nice pace and, though exaggerating with the amount of 'sleeping your way to the top', it was done in an enjoyable manner that kept an actual storyline behind all the sex sex sex.
Art - 10
All and all the art was simplistic, yet great. Details were very key and added
a lot to the storyline, the most notable detail being the bush of that tan man whose name I can't remember.
Sound - 10
I'll be frank, the main character moaned like a little bitch and that was a real turn off. He sounded like he was a five year old being molested. 10 because of that great soundtrack for the sexy parts, though.
Character - 10
I really grew close to all the characters in this short 3 episode span, finding them to be realistic and relatable. They were put into situations that really showed the true them and the way they did the do really just made it a 10 on their character chart.
Enjoyment - 10
I would have fapped if I wasn't so lazy.
Overall - 10
Just all around perfect, prepare your dildos for this one.
Can i start out by saying this is yaoi if you hadnt already figured it out. But im assuming as far as yaoi goes its pretty swell.
Mochizuki wants to get ahead in business and goes to great extents to do so. Pretty homosexual. Pretty erotic. This really brings out the true potential in the story as you watch it progress with action and twists and turns.
Old style art, simple, classy, love it. not the massive eyes and when they get mad, oh dang does the lighting change. Love it.
Pretty erotic sounds for the sexuals. The random horror music really pulls the piece together and brings
out the yaoi in it.
The character development though. I mean Mochizuki doesn't seem to change too much throughout the story except get a looser bum-hole. Honma however shows his gentle side especially during the frick frack with Mochizuki.
Smirked and shocked faces throughout the whole thing, I cant say that it wasn't enjoyable. I laughed quite frequently and felt the sexual tension between the men.
I recommend to all that like the yaoi.
The tittle originally put me off watching it, but I eventually got around to seeing it and it was actually quite good. It deals with some pretty touchy topics like ethics in the business world and things people will do to further their careers. But I found the story line to be realistic and it was interesting to see it portrayed from the viewpoint of a male. As sleeping to the top is usually something that is attributed to women. I found the relationship between Mochizuki and Honma to be intriguing as you never really find out for sure how they actually feel about each
other and whether or not they were just using each other to further their careers. Admittedly there were a few scenes that were quite cringe inducing, but they where there to further the story so in the end it all made sense. This is not a lovey dovey romantic yaoi by any means, but you do wonder how the main characters actually feel about one another and whether or not the protagonist will eventually feel love for somebody or if he will just continue doing what he has chosen to do so far.
I may not be a homosexual, given i like football, beef burritos, and hot women. But this series is actually one of the most in depth and landmark masterpieces of the yaoi genre. Though i watch yaoi because i am a mature anime reviewer, not because i am gay.
Boku No Sexual Harassment creates a very serious tone, dealing with themes such as letting your boss molest you to move up the corporate ladder. (This is a bit of behind the scenes info but in the 80s, japan was ran almost entirely of gay businessmen. ) Another dark but real theme is the gay businessman
love triangle that arises halfway through the series, though i am not gay this dynamic is something i wish to replicate (but with hot chicks and not gay japanese businessmen.) Though these themes are very real, boku no sexual harassment drives it home with its stunning art, rivaling that of akira, whos director John Akira has said "Yeah I just copied boku no sexual harassment, i am a stinky fucking idiot." The lewd scenes are so vivid and realistic, a gay man (unlike myself) might find arousal from them. Overall this series is an underrated gem that if given the recognition it deserves it would be one of the classics on anime club posters in high schools all around the world. 10/10
Boku no Sexual Harassment is the easiest to explain porn in this world.
It exists because otherwise something would have been missing in this world.
We've seen so much in our lives, although we didn't see it happening right before our eyes.
But still... we haven't seen enough.
TV makes us get confronted with things like suicide, terrorism, retarded politicians, China, corrupt companies and all that stuff nearly every day. But TV doesn't show us what you actually need in order to become one of the stated "retarded politicians".
But Boku no Sexual Harassment does. It's almighty power and impact of doing so reveals too much, so it
has to disguise itself as porn. Remember Shostacovich? He was a Russian composer in Soviet Union times. He was against the government, but had to hide it obviously, since the reveal could cost his life. So he even worked for Stalin, while always including a rebellious melody in his compositions. Boku no Sexual Harassment is the Shostacovich of the anime world.
You see Donald Trump? You see Barack Obama? You see Kim Jong Un? You see Bill Gates and Stephen Hawking? Well the big reveal is, that they all slept with their superiors in order to gain their current power, money and of course popularity. They all got corn up their ass. It's sick and twisted. But Boku no Sexual Harassment is aware of that and tries to realistically flesh it out for the viewer to see. You don't need talent or good looks (although the latter is a big advantage), you just need a butt. Everyone has a butt. Everything is possible in this world, even for you.
It's not even that sick and twisted when I think about it. We all know nothing about each other, we just see each other's faces and a little glimpse of how we act like, and said glimpse could also be a facade or a misinterpretation from our side. We still work with that, since that's the only thing we have. What if every person that you hate could be a fucking pro in a parallel universe? Could be the most funny person ever existing because they were raised in a good direction? Because the experiences and all that stuff they made on coincidence let them realize what they actually want in life, let them find their true selves? Imagine Donald Trump getting confronted with things like Starvation in the Hunger Games. Imagine Donald Trump finding love, Donald Trump becoming friends with High School students who smoke during their lunch break at school. Imagine Donald Trump turning into a reliable best Classmate-Kun anime character. Now look at a picture of the Donald Trump you know in this world. It could have been different, it could have been easy. But he was raised in a rich family and he never got what he truly needed, so he turned into a douche. Everyone turns into an anime character when they're born in an anime. Everyone would adapt it's logic, since that would be the only thing that they've ever known.
Hate always has a reason. But said reason could always be made undone. If the rulers who start wars would experience what their decision is doing to other people's lives, maybe they would realize and stop it, find another way. No one who has lost the things they hold dear to war would ever want to start it again.
Love is the opposite, sometimes it's just there without explaining itself.
So does hate even exist in this world? Does evil exist, when you could make the evil good as long as you know what to do? So evil doesn't exist... right? Read Charles Dickens, the best and kindest of his characters always have a darker side to them, while his antagonistic characters are able to learn a lesson or do have a soft spot. The best example is Ebenezer Scrooge obviously, he turned from cold hearted bastard into an outgoing, friendly and caring person. Boku no Sexual Harassment put these thoughts into my head.
I will never blame Hitler for what he did. He probably is my best pal in a parallel world and we watch stupid animu cartoons there, together. While eating popcorn.
Experience this masterpiece by yourself, I'm out. I don't have anything left to say the feels simply overwhelm me.
Ps: Let's be honest here the cringe was intense. I still mean my 9/10 score exactly as it is, since it was this kind of cringe which makes it hard not to look at without chuckling. I love this animu. But I won't recommend it to anyone in this world, besides autistics.
