Being asked to work as a voice actress at a game company might not be so bad, unless you are Kanna Aoyagi. On her 16th birthday, her older sister Yayoi guilts Kanna into doing voice work for her at Blue March, a game company that specializes in eroge: erotic games with lots of sexual content.
Sweet and innocent, Kanna has no idea how she can possibly succeed at such an occupation when she has no sexual experience. But as she plays eroge for research, uses her vivid imagination, and receives unorthodox help from her coworkers, Kanna slowly becomes more comfortable with her new, embarrassing profession.
North American distributor Media Blasters offered replacement copies of the Koe de Oshigoto! DVDs due to an issue that caused the anime to loop back to the menu. The distributor had originally planned to have the anime officially dubbed, but later cancelled these plans. The release of the second episode DVD was postponed twice, coming out over a year after the first.
It doesn't even matter if you're alone, you'll still cringe instinctively. This is an extremely short anime so I'll keep the review length appropriate. The show is about voice acting in lewd productions and as such, its performances certainly have expectations to live up to.
Koe De Oshigoto blows those expectation out of the fucking water. To the point I really can't imagine the voice actors keeping a straight face delivering the lines that they do unless they were utterly focused on distressing you.
This series will violate your mind, your innocence and somehow leave you exploding with
laughter start to finish.
I laughed way harder than I thought I would. My friend was insisting me to watch this from a very long time but the story kind of odd. Nevertheless I thought to give it a try since it was only a 2 episode OVA. It was beyond my expectations and they handled the concept pretty well.
If you are not okay with adult words or kind of erotic stuff this is not for you but if you are even comfortable with it even a little bit, do not miss this anime
Well the story is pretty much the same as written in the summary that
is IT is a story about Aoyagi Kanna, a 16-year-old girl who was asked to become an erotic game voice actress on her 16th birthday by her elder sister at her company and she isn't able to refuse though too shy due to first time. To make it more interesting they added a boy from girl's school
Art was good like any other regular anime
Sound was outstanding and it really let you feel the emotions flowing through you and before you all let your thoughts flow in the wrong direction, I clarify that it's not in the way.
There is not much character development in an OVA anyways. To tell it in brief Kanna is a regular high school girl who knows a bit about erotic things and is curious to know more but shy to take any action.
To sum it all up this is a 'must watch' which will take you to roller coaster ride of laughter and fun.
Good things about this anime :
It's got border-line hentai scenes (even though it's not really oriented towards hentai) which makes it crazy,
it's funny (more like, cringy and crazy),
it's short (because if it was long it would've been terribly painful to watch, due to the "bad things" that I listed after this),
and all of the above makes it unique.
Bad things about this anime :
It's got border-line hentai scenes,
it's stupid and unrealistic,
it's humor is simple as hell, it's all about the main character being either embarrassed, or cringy.
When to watch it : It's incredibly short so I recommend you to watch it when you wanna watch something
else than the "main" anime you're watching(so you get "relaxed").
Who to watch it with : Watch it alone, or with your friends who accept perverted stuff.
Should you watch it ? Not necessarily. To be honest, you don't have to, it's just comedy anyway.
Watching Koe de Oshigoto! was an unforgettable experience, not to be missed. No slow start here, this short OVA series starts off with a bang and shows no signs of slowing down as it delivers a complete story over two episodes and keeps you wanting more.
Even though KoeGoto isn't a hentai series, I'm going to review it as one since it's better than most hentai I've seen over the past decade.
This is what really ties the show together, there's no other way to really justify a non-H series that features schoolgirls reading hentai dialogue, having vivid sexual fantasies, or on-screen orgasms.
While not an award-winning plotline, it does its job of keeping the setting coherent. It's also not a very commonly seen storyline, especially in non-H media, and considering the subject matter, it'll be a long time until we see another like it. The only downside is how little of the source material was adapted, and as a result viewers are missing out on a lot of plot development, especially concerning her friends, Kotori and Hazuki.
Nothing really special about the art. It's very clean and crisp, but simplistic. You're not getting the same detail as a P.A. Works anime but I'd put the quality at late 2000's Kyoani. Now what KoeGoto brings to the table is in its sex scenes. While brief, they hit the bases, delivering you juicy, raunchy action with only nipples and genitalia censored. But that's what your imagination is for, right?
There's not much to say about the soundtrack, nothing special here either, and you hardly notice it anyways since you're busier paying attention to the dialogue. The voice acting however is superb, especially during the recording sessions where it's virtually indistinguishable from hentai dialogue. Downsides include not actually being able to hear more of Hazuki's Kansai H-dialogue readings.
The characters are lovable but somewhat plain. However it's very easy to get attached to them, and that sort of emotional investment ultimately leads to higher returns when they end up voicing the H-scenarios. Kanna is cute when she tries her best even when what she's doing is really embarrassing. It's difficult to hate any of the characters, even the annoying and perverted Shige who's not ashamed to announce that he gets off to highschool girls.
Definitely check this out if you're interested in cute girls doing lewd things, but don't want to be stuck with the stigma of watching actual hentai; if you've never watched ecchi or hentai before and want something as a gateway; or even if you're an avid hentai connoisseur, Koe de Oshigoto has much to offer viewers of any level and experience.
What better way to show how the anime industry works than through anime? Shows about the anime and video game industries are gaining popularity, and feature everything from voice acting to hentai game creation. Hold onto your hats, things are about to get meta over here.
