G-Taste: The Taste of Honey
Reviewer: Rowena Lim Lei 11/19/2003

Synopsis:
Three provocative episodes:
  • Moe Yagisawa - Moe is an office lady who has a penchant for making out with inanimate objects.
  • Nana Morimura - Nana is a virginal young woman who is about to be initiated into a world of forbidden pleasures.
  • Mai Kannazuki - Mai has always been the dominant queen of those who are under her... but what if she has to be on the receiving end?
Review:
G-Taste is a collection of erotic vignettes, each of which is focused on a specific girl. Of the three episodes, only the first is independent. The other two are related, taking place in the same setting and featuring the same cast of characters.

The first feature, Moe Yagisawa, is really more of a detailed demonstration of how to get dressed and undressed. Majority of the screening time is devoted to showing us Moe's daily routine in detail -- how she showers, puts on her office clothes, applies make-up... you get the idea. After that, we discover that Moe is actually addicted to rubbing her crotch against various everyday things, anywhere from table edges to steel railings. The second feature, Nana Morimura, is the usual story of a young, innocent girl getting work as a maid and getting trained for sexual slavery. Nana works under a woman named Mai Kannazuki, who is the subject of the third feature. Mai is the assigned superior of the maids in the mansion, and she's the one in charge of their training. They put on a live sex show every year for their rich and prominent guests, and it looks like Mai's going to be an active participant in this year's show.

What these three episodes have in common is that there is no man involved in all of the sex scenes. Moe is all about masturbation, while Nana and Mai do it with other women exclusively -- and they are all fully equipped with the necessary sexual gear in order to satisfy each other. G-Taste tries to be artistic in terms of presentation, with slow and deliberate scenes that seem to thrive on every inch of the anatomy and every ounce of movement that occurs. I guess there is some merit in that, but overall I found that it just caused the pace to drag. I have to give plus points to G-Taste for uniqueness though.

Art and animation-wise, I have no complaints about G-Taste. Character designs are exceptional. I found all the girls to be extremely pretty, albeit there were some inconsistencies on how they were drawn. The sex scenes weren't very graphic since none of the lower genital areas were really shown. Sexual activities include masturbation, a bit of bestiality, and the use of various kinky paraphernalia (gag balls, strap-on dildos, and the like).

G-Taste is admittedly a hentai title of a different flavor. It takes one basic character and wrings out everything it can from there on, resulting in sluggish paper-thin voyeuristic pieces. It may be worth your while if you fancy girl-to-girl (yuri) action, but if not, it's probably best to move on to more scintillating titles.
