Summer Heat
Reviewer: Rowena Lim Lei 07/18/2001

Synopsis:
It's summer vacation. Masato and his best friend Oka had just gotten a job at the restaurant by the beach. They are, of course, hoping to meet some pretty girls and maybe even have a fling. Oka doesn't have a problem with this and almost immediately hooks up with a cute co-worker. Things are different for Masato though. Being on the shy side, he just can't seem to talk to girls like Oka can. But by some stroke of luck, Masato bumps into Chihiru -- the girl he's had a crush on since junior high! Chihiru's grown in all the right places too... looks like it could still be one sizzling summer for Masato!

Review:
I'll tell you straight off -- there's nothing hot in Summer Heat.

First of all, the main character Masato has about as much personality as a dead fish. The guy is a sniveling loser! He looks okay enough, but he's so spineless and dense that I found myself wanting to slap him silly. It's completely understandable why most of the sex he gets is in his imagination. Yet things happen rather conveniently for Masato. His dream girl Chihiru suddenly pops out of nowhere and rekindles their friendship. She's coincidentally around and free when Masato thinks of asking her out. She also dumps her super wealthy, handsome, and influential suitor for pathetic ol' Masato. And get this: Masato's rival is the very person who tells Masato to go to Chihiru because she prefers him. D-oh!!! Masato is so clueless that things have to be spelled out for him every time.

Then there's the sex. Everything is shown from top to bottom, but the details aren't so good. The lower genital areas are crudely drawn, and the hairs look like someone's mustache. It was kind of funny. The art and animation range from a little bad to average fare. The characters are depicted adequately but there are times when their movements are jerky. The English dubbing is passable at best. Some of the voices are okay for the characters, while some are just irritating to listen to. Let's just say that if you want something hot, you definitely don't want Summer Heat. Well... at least it didn't put me to sleep.

Miscellanies:
This is the first of a 3-volume series. Masato and Chihiro's romance continues in "Autumn Heat". If you want better hentai material that is something along these lines try "End of Summer". The DVD release "
A Heat for All Seasons" contains all the Heat volumes.
