I’ve begun to wonder to myself whether there are an unparalleled number of Vanilla Series titles out there, or if I just have an uncanny ability to often choose them for review. I’m beginning to think it’s a bit of both, with their lackluster animation and uninspired (hell, usually uninteresting) stories, they must be able to churn these titles out faster than all the other studios combined! Humiliated Wives follows their itinerary to a T, with laughable animation and a plotline that has not only been done before, but in a better and more coherent manner. Problems abound in this unfortunate piece of work with a happily unexpected, albeit twisted, end.
Humiliated Wives is a rather sordid pleasure trip about two families and the problems they encounter at the hands of a loan company when they are unable to pay on their respective debts. Kagami, the president of the loan company, has his own ideas about how these families can pay off their debts, and it doesn’t involve money. Shoko, whose husband has fallen ill, is the first victim. With a daughter to think about, she’s willing to allow Kagami to use her body as a way of paying off her debt and keeping her daughter safe, an alternative to doing adult videos for him. The other woman, Ayane, is not quite as lucky, but her sexual promiscuity turns out to be a great mix with making adult videos, something which only takes her part of the day to pay off her amount owed. Things aren’t that simple for these women though, for Kagami doesn’t merely want these women to pay their debts off through sex, he wants them to become intoxicated by the ambrosia like pleasure it brings and effectively turn them into sex slaves. Of course, what man doesn’t want that?
This is a relatively easy task in the world of hentai; where woman will throw away just about anything for more sex, without a care for just who that someone is or what relation they have. One might wonder what their husbands have to say about this, but Kagami doesn’t like leaving loose ends when it comes to his sex slaves. This leaves those pesky husbands pretty much out of luck, but one woman’s daughter, who’s trying to get her sex addicted mother back, is entirely fair game. Oh course, that doesn’t turn out too well for her, and after a gang bang by a rather unsightly group, she gets to have a little fun with her now sex-entranced mother and her little strap-on friend. It seems like the titles two episodes will end without much of a conclusion, other than everyone left alive being sex crazed, but they decide to throw the justice curveball out there, something rarely seen in hentai titles. One act will make you cheer, but the other may give you pause. Let’s just say it entails a rather unique dildo, which must be stuffed with hot coals or in some way made blistering hot, culminating in an end result I’m sure you can imagine yourselves. Now that, my friends, would have to be unpleasant!
There are innumerable problems here; it’s difficult to know where to start. I don’t usually mention the writing, since one can normally assume it isn’t anything special, but here it’s just downright stupid, especially with regards to the sex scenes. I just don’t know how these “I’m becoming a pussy,” “I’m making a face of good sensations” and “I want to come gaudily and vulgarly!” comments really add anything other than comedic, eye roll distractions from the terrible animation. Which is, by all measures, awful and I really wish they would have had succeeded at distracting me from it more. I mean, at the start of the second episode one scene just cycled through one twenty second loop after another, it was so noticeably bad that I just had to laugh as I watched to see just how long each segment lasted. Yes, watching to see how long each looped scene would last was more interesting that actually watching the scene, if that doesn’t speak volumes I don’t know what will. That may be the worst of them, but the rest certainly aren’t much better. At least the girls are pretty to look at, whatever that really counts for when everything else is filled with so much fail.
If the story’s weak and the sex scenes aren’t titillating, what’s left for a hentai title? Well… not much really. Not even sweet, sweet justice could save Humiliated Wives from being little more than that a waste of time.
