Synopsis:
For ten years Linear, a female android beyond her time, has been sleeping within the depths of the ocean, hidden away from man and kept safe from those who would do her harm. Finally waking from her long slumber, she is without any memories of the past and no idea where she is now. After getting lost in a nearby forest she is happened upon by Sayaka, a young woman who’s on a retreat with her co-worker Misuzu and party crasher Aki. The three women are researchers who work on androids, so they decide to help Linear try to recover her memories. A very special relationship begins to flourish between Linear and Sayaka, but they don’t have much time to savor it before problems arise. Namely that another android, Astarisk, is looking for Linear, trying to uncover the secrets which lay sealed in her mind. And she’s willing to do anything to get them... 

Review:
Of all the hentai titles out there, one of the things you rarely encounter is a title almost completely devoid of any male presence. Stainless Night is one of the few, mixing its full yuri (lesbian) content with a bit of cheating. Since, with no men in sight, they have to make things more interesting. In hentai terms this means either fun with toys, that one of the girls is going to have a little something extra, or both. In this case you’re going to get a little something extra, which is great, as long as you’re into futanari (dick girl) content. But to be fair, she’s not really a girl, she’s a robot.
 
Stainless Night’s basically a rendition of the girl with amnesia formula, with the usual baddies trying to get a hold of her for unknown reasons. This time around there’s an added lure, the girl’s actually an android with the ability to please both sexes, and all the characters just happen to be lesbians. The story takes place at a remote corporate cottage where Sayaka and Misuzu plan to have a quiet getaway and sexual odyssey, an event Misuzu is much more excited about. Their plans are interrupted not once but twice by Aki and Linear who crash their attempted romantic tryst. With 4 girls and one cabin, things get a little hot under the collar, with almost all of the erotic scenes being devoted to Sayaka and Linear as their love blossoms. And what happens when everything’s going so well and all seems right with the world? A crazy womandroid named Astarisk comes and wrecks the party, hurting everyone in an attempt to get Linear to give her the secrets she holds. Unfortunately Astarisk never gets in on any of them action and only briefly molests one of the girls for a few seconds, a missed opportunity to be sure.   
 
The story won’t knock your socks off, but it does well enough for the time given. It makes sense and isn’t stupid, so I can’t complain. At two episodes in length, there isn’t much in the way of development in any respect, but I did find the relationship between Sayaka and Linear very sweet. You can tell the focus shifts squarely to them as the other women get reduced to minor roles with no additional sex scenes after Linear enters the picture. This wasn’t much of a negative for me because I wasn’t the biggest fan of their designs, but was with respect to the other two, especially Linear. The animation didn’t have the same discrepancies and succeeded at being above average, an achievement considering it was made in 1995.   
 
There are two main sex scenes in Stainless Night, both of which involve Sayaka and Linear, with other bits of erotic happenings scattered throughout, like Aki grinding against a tree (she gets no love from anyone). Sensual and succulent as these scenes are they do not show anything below the waist, except for one brief scene when Linear is first unveiling her special member. It doesn’t seem to negatively impact the scenes though, which are still quite arousing. What does negatively impact the release is the English dub, which misses the mark both in acting and tone. Luckily we always have subs.
 
Stainless Night is simple in story and development, but more than makes up for it with tender yuri scenes and a beautiful main character. Best for those who’re yuri fans and don’t mind the lack of exposed skin.
