The synopsis sounds like something from Brazzers lmao. Even more hilarious that it's being adapted by the same producers of Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

@Fabris I'm just used to the stereotype that Japanese girls adore cool and passionate ikemen so much that they are ready to fall in love even with a woman if she has such appearance. However, judging by shoujo, Japanese women really like active guys.

But it is...hentai targetting to women is also hentai.

It seems that the magic bus wants to make me think that all Japanese women dream of mature aggressive ikemen in the age of 20-25 years.



Well, not all, but sure it seems to be a popular fetish; otherwise, there would be no demand for those shorts.
Also, the ones buying it are probably not males.So...

I counted two MENS smut from ComicFesta. I never saw people object or judge Japanese men, but a sexual content for Japanese women featuring the opposite sex is sinful filth.


That stuff is trash as well.

What makes you think that I was singling out women here?

The smut trash is indeed of low quality, I'd give you that. The company is trying to profit off it more by streaming uncensored versions on their paid online platform and English licensing a few TL titles for the western digital market. All the time, we get antagonistic reactions from men when female-oriented anime are announced regardless if there's smut or not. I'm nearing my limit.

Well that's your own problem that's gonna be smut in some anime no matter you don't like it


Um, okay?

I just stated my opinion. Nobody has to agree with it or anything.
Yeah I know also sorry if I sound rude before I just hate when people getting upset about this when japan Announces stuff like before but again really sorry for my behavior before all you can do is ignore this and just find an anime what you like the most which all you can do I mean people have different taste all I can say :(.

Do you hate it because it's female oriented? Or do you dislike all sexually heavy anime? Judging from your profile your gay, so why are you concerned with what woman want to watch and passing judgement?

Pretty much everything with the word "Joushi" in the title is smut/trash.

That premise is dumb even for porn. Way dumber than not having the money to pay the plumber...

For some reason I get the feeling you hate that women are sexual beings and enjoy smut too even if it's not always the same stuff men like. Not sure why I get that impression.

Personally, I prefer my smut having a story and proper character progression, which isn't what the vast majority of these hentai shorts have. Although it's hard to say if it's because of the adaptation being so short, or if the source material's that shit. Could be both.

Also I could just be seeing things, but I have to question the consent as a lot of these women characters (which I'm using loosely because they have like little-to-no personality for the sake of self-insertion) have to be coerced into sex pretty much every single time... God, Japanese women are nothing but doormats, aren't they?

No, I just miss the days when Magic Bus put out meaningful stories, and not trash like this.

I've seen my share of smut when I was younger, although I don't look at it as often as some people do. I often frown at sexual things. These days, I refuse to watch anything with sex in it, because it bothers me.
