Short on work and low on cash, Detective Satoru Kido is having trouble finding a reason not to take a case involving a missing jewel on a private island estate. What he doesn’t realize is just how far down the rabbit hole truly goes, as he encounters a host of shady characters who all seem to have something to hide. With a mysterious butler who never tells all he knows, a loli Mistress with daddy issues, a horny tutor with ulterior motives and a creepy groundskeeper who seems to be sex training the poor maid, Detective Kido has his work cut out for him. But it’s not the endless list of suspects that has him perturbed, it’s the odd feeling that he’s been to this island before…
Taking a classic “who done it” mystery and mixing it with some perverted flair, Genmukan is a hentai title with a surprising amount of appeal. It’s not that the mystery and intrigue is going to have to contemplating its intricacies for days on end or that the sex scenes will have you finding something in common with a stick of dynamite. But it’s just good enough on both counts to give you something most hentai titles of this type fail to achieve—enjoyment of both the story and the sex scenes.
As Detective Kido delves ever deeper into the disappearance of an important family heirloom, one which signifies the rightful heir to the estate, he’s constantly assailed by seemingly bizarre acts as he sleuths his way through seemingly endless secret passageways. The maid being sex trained by the grotesque groundskeeper was strange enough, but a ménage à trois featuring Mistress Ayano along with her maid and tutor only furthered his suspicion that something was very wrong in this secluded mansion of pleasure. And, in true hentai from, it’s only after Detective Kido finishes sexing up all these ladies of the manor that the pieces start to fall into place and the truth finally takes shape.
Unfortunately the climax doesn’t come with as much of a bang as one would have liked, as a well telegraphed revelation doesn’t lead to the most desirous conclusion, but the journey more than makes up for the ends shortcomings. With mischievous hanky-panky happening anywhere and everywhere, there’s little not to enjoy when Detective Kiba isn’t sleuthing it up. Most of the time we simply get Detective Kiba having his way with any woman within eyesight, as he first starts with his assistant and quickly moves on to every woman the mansion has to offer. While there’s nothing too crazy happening during any of these, a plethora of various positions that rotate quickly from one to the next keep things from ever growing the least bit stale. The real stars of the show come when Detective Kiba is simply an observer, first as he watches the maid getting trained with a vibrator and some sensitivity enhancing lotion and then when Mistress Ayano and her loyal maid and tutor all get it on together. Now this would be fantastic in and of itself, but you throw in some vibrators and double dildos and you have a yuri scene that’s tough to beat.
Holding all this glory together are some fairly strong technicals, with a relatively high level of detail and some quality animation—at least when the characters are getting it on anyway. There’s a fair bit of static talking as an unusually large amount of time is dedicated to the story, which I’m sure helped when it came to the more animation intensive sex scenes. The character designs were also quite nice, with the loli Mistress being a nice contrast to the more mature tutor and classically sexy maid. Possibly the most surprising thing about Genmukan is its fairly decent English Dub, which had largely no issues to even mention.
Unfortunately for us, few hentai titles are able to couple both an intriguing storyline and enjoyable sex scenes together, but Genmukan strives to break ranks with its lesser cousins. And while neither aspect is, in and of itself, amazing, taken together they offer quite a fun and highly erotic adventure with all the trimmings you could hope for.
