Synopsis:
Noriko Yoshifuku is sick. She hasn't gone to school in weeks, so a concerned teacher tells two of her male classmates (Satoshi and Junichi) to see her and drop off some class notes. When Satoshi and Junichi get to her house, they are surprised by what they encounter. Somehow, Noriko had blossomed into one hot-blooded young woman with uncontrollable sexual urges. Can the two guys cope?

Review:
Some years ago, I reviewed a hentai anime called Four Play. I don't know how or why they came up with that title but I'll tell you straight off: a. there are only two episodes; b. of the four main characters, only three are sexually involved; c. this has absolutely nothing to do with the number four. Now Four Play has been re-released as 2x1, a title which is just as unrelated. As far as I'm concerned "Nympho", "Threesome", or "2+1" would have been a more fitting title, because that about sums up the plot.

To put it simply, Noriko Yoshifuku is a stark raving nymphomaniac who can't get enough sex. She wants nothing else but to do it with anybody and everybody. It doesn't matter if you're a guy, a girl, or maybe even an animal I imagine. If you're ever alone with Noriko you can be sure that she'll jump you. Things don't go anywhere beyond that. There's no clue as to why Noriko turned out that way, nor does she show any interest in finding a cure for her syndrome. The two guys are equally useless. They like Noriko, become her friends, and are more than happy to screw her repeatedly. The trio form a strange love triangle of sorts, and it's boring because there's no point to it. I found myself dozing off from time to time thanks to the uninteresting characters and the absence of any form of story twists.

The art and animation are below par. The characters are crudely drawn and generic-looking, as are the backgrounds. 2x1's sexual content is surprisingly detailed though. Don't let the innocent-looking faces fool you. You get to see everything in their full uncensored glory, and the way the pumping scenes are rendered is worthy of porn flick status. The English dubbing isn't worth shit either. The voice actors deliver their dialogues either woodenly or in singsong voices that make it seem as if they were just reading their lines for the sake having a dub. There's not an iota of acting involved, save for the exaggerated moans and groans during sex. The pronunciation of the Japanese names and surnames are horribly inaccurate to boot.

Personally I couldn't find anything worthwhile in this title, but some people might actually enjoy watching the hearty amount of sex scenes.

Miscellanies:
*yawn* what a bore...
