Review:
Nanako Takashiro and her family have fallen on hard times. With her incompetent father at the helm, their once successful family business is dive bombing towards bankruptcy. It’s only thanks to the help of their adopted son Yushiro that the whole thing hasn’t crashed and burned already. But Yushiro has a secret; he and Nanako have fallen madly in love, a fact they consummated long ago. Their brazen, middle of the day trysts aren’t helping them keep it a secret however, especially when their mother walks in on them in the heat of passion. As one could surmise, she doesn’t take too kindly to their love affair, even if they aren’t actually related. In an attempt to nip their budding relationship in, well, the bud, Yushiro gets shipped off to study in London as a way to let them cool off. They may have gotten him away from their daughter, but once he’s out of the family business the countdown to debauchery begins.   
 
If their goal was to shoot themselves in the foot, they succeeded brilliantly. With Yushiro gone, the family business quickly collapses in on itself. Now you may think the worst that can happen is bankruptcy, but his creditors aren’t going to have any of that. They’ve a couple ideas about how he can pay off his sizeable debts, mostly regarding the use of sweet little Nanako’s body to their own wicked ends. She doesn’t have much of a choice, with the welfare of her family hanging in the balance, so she concedes to their terms and they get to work on ravishing her body ceaselessly for five days. Of course, this is all just an act on their part, and after she finishes with her services they’re back to claim even more for their debts. Only this time they’re going to extract payment from all the women of the mansion, even the poor maid!       
 
If it doesn’t sound like there’s much happening here that’s because there isn’t. After an eight minute introduction from an unknown house member who tells you about all the characters, there’s only sixteen minutes left before the OVA is over. That doesn’t exactly leave much time for anything, but their lack of time isn’t really the problem. I mean, it’s not like the story was that enthralling to begin with, but it’s the technicals that really kill House of 100 Tongues. If showing us a shot of their house about 20 different times wasn’t enough, the same sort of scene reuse plagues the release as much as its one-dimensional story does. The only way to make things worse would be to listen to the English dub in all its terrible glory. I can’t even figure out why they decided to dub a one episode OVA of such low quality. It boggles the mind…
 
The only remotely shinning point, and I say that in relation to the rest of this dark and dull release, is in the sexual detail and the sex scenes in general. They’re surprisingly not too bad, even though they don’t particularly last that long. And given the quality of the rest of it, I was surprised to see as much detail as I did. Of course, that does little to resurrect House of 100 Tongues from the trash pile, but it’s something at least. It’s not enough to warrant watching it certainly, save that for the poor people like me who didn’t know any better going into it and spend your time watching just about anything else.
