Kama Sutra: The Ultimate Sex Adventure
Reviewer: Rowena Lim Lei 12/31/1999

Synopsis:
Dr. Aikawa finds a sleeping Indian princess frozen deep in the Himalayan mountains... and the only way to revive her is to concoct a mixture of certain bodily fluids. The doctor's nephew Ryu is immediately taken with Princess Surya upon her awakening. But the sinister Naga Clan also wants her, for she holds the key to eternal life...

Review:
I can't help but be skeptical when watching anything by Go Nagai. His works are generally too eccentric for my tastes. He tends to mix violence and nudity with humor (see "The Abashiri Family" and "Devilman") -- but the end result is not always funny... or comprehensible for that matter.

Kama Sutra starts with a scene from 1500 years ago. Princess Surya and a knight are running from the enemy forces, but they are subsequently cornered and the knight ends up getting killed (very violently at that). Just as Surya is about to be captured, a mysterious hand snatches her up to the sky. Fast forward to the present day -- Dr. Aikawa discovers a slumbering Surya frozen deep within the Himalayan mountains. He brings her back to civilization, and there she is revived... much to his nephew Ryu's delight. Kama Sutra is not the typical love story that you'd expect, and I won't reveal any more as not to spoil it.

The video cover's summary is very deceptive. To quote, "With lovestruck eyes, Ryu decides he must master the 48 positions of the ancient art of love, as described in the classic Indian text, the Kama Sutra.". Well, suprise surprise... it's nothing like that. Just about the only time Ryu has a lot of sex is when Dr. Aikawa's buxom female assistant decides that it's time to teach Ryu "how to be a man". There's this series of chambers supposedly based on the Kama Sutra that implement about 3 different sexual positions (all common ones at that), which is quite a far cry from the 48 promised by the summary. Take away that part and you have something that's almost not hentai, save for a few gratuitous nude scenes -- which is characteristic of Go Nagai. There's always a reason to strip, and it's not necessarily sex.

The art and animation are okay. Surya is pretty enough, but everyone else looks generic to say the least. Nudity and sex are not portrayed very explicitly. The lower genitalia are never shown, so it's all boobs and butts.

With its idiosyncratic plot and so-so visuals, Kama Sutra is a notch above average at best. It has its moments, but I wouldn't recommend it to hardcore hentai fans due to its relatively light sexual content.

Miscellanies:
This video doesn't seem to have anything to do with the classic book Kama Sutra.
