(This is a review of both Episode 0 and Episode 1 of Fuzzy Lips, although they are listed separately on MAL.)
Fuzzy Lips is utterly fantastic and I recommend it to everyone, especially other women. Hentai is full of quirks that… bother me particularly as a woman who likes men, but Fuzzy Lips is perfection. The male lead is cute, which we all know is something that hentai lacks, the dicks are great, and in my opinion the fetish material appeals greatly to women.
It’s my personal all-time favourite hentai OVA. Put out by Pashmina, animated by Studio 1st, the studio also responsible for Junjou Shoujo Et Cetera, Ane Kyun, Otome Hime and Mokkai Shiyo, and are one of the best studio animating hentai. I rate it a 10 among hentai, and unironically rate it a 9 alongside other anime. I rate it higher than anime that are probably more objectively quality like Cardcaptor Sakura or Fate/Zero, but hear me out.
Objective ‘quality’ doesn’t interest me as much as it seems to interest other reviewers and critics of anime.
The thing I look for is… longevity. Or more accurately ‘how much I think about an anime after watching it’. The reasons someone thinks about a show is entirely subjective, from story elements that appeal to you more than it would anyone else, or an unique art-style that you can’t get anywhere else.
Do I just think about Fuzzy Lips so much because it’s just a perfect combination of fetishes I adore and can’t get effort of, with an art style that is everything I want in a hentai, along with the annexing all the little quirks of hentai that turn me off a show? Probably. God damn it’s so great. The leads are adorable, the art style is that perfect mix of adorable and mature, and the animation is stellar.
The plot is simple, I won’t go on and on about how ‘but this has a plot!’ as if that means anything or makes a hentai better. A male teacher and a trouble maker school girl student are in a relationship. The girl has an abandonment issues that they overcome while sleeping together. Many of it’s sex scenes are school-based exhibitionist–fucking secretly in the school bathroom, on the roof, in the school yard, and in a Ferris wheel.
Male teacher/female student is a great fetish dynamic, particularly one with a cute male character. That’s one of the little quirks of hentai that this avoids so wonderfully. Typically if there’s a male teacher, expect Fat Ugly Old Man Number 312. That meme, I’m sure you’ve seen it, is entirely accurate for a reason.
Another one is in particular is what I like to call ‘shit dick’. Which yeah dicks are darker than the rest of the body but it’s like… why not just do the best of everyone. Imagine having the grossest more torn up roast beef vagina in a hentai. No thank you. Don’t make me suffer through shit dick! Which is just a lead in for me to say that the uncensored dicks in Fuzzy Lips are… appealing. I think it has some of the best blowjob scenes in hentai.
I unironically adore this fucking hentai so much I made a fucking AMV out of it. I wasted my time doing that and only grew to appreciate the animation, art style and designs more. Watch Fuzzy Lips, it’s fantastic.
