The Mystery of Nonomura Hospital
Reviewer: Aaron Murphy 03/17/2010

Review:
You may not know it by looking at him, or talking to him for that matter, but Takumaro Kaibara is a master detective and all around pervert extraordinaire. Having just been hired to investigate the suicide of Nonomura Hospital’s president, Kaibara is so excited that he not only crashes his scooter but also breaks his leg in the process. Now he’s not just investigating the suicide to see if there was really foul play involved, he’s also a patient having to sneak around in his wheelchair with the help of all those lovely nurses. Of course, he doesn’t mind too much, not when there are so many panties to be seen, but the same can’t be said for those sexually harassed nurses!
 
Nurse abuse aside, Detective Kaibara has been hired by Akiko, the widow and vice president of Nonomura Hospital, to try and prove that someone switched her husband’s sexual enhancement drugs with cyanide. Of course, her whole reason for this investigation is to prove that is was murder so that she can collect the sizable life insurance policy she just recently took out on him… suspicious much? You bet, but she’s not the only one. Just about every nurse in this hospital seems to be harboring some deep dark secret. One nurse is being blackmailed into sex by an evil security guard, a nurse and patient seem to share some dark secret and yet another keeps eavesdropping on every conversation Kaibara has. So now it falls to Kaibara to sort through this sordid mess while still trying to check out as many panties as he possibly can because, as we all know, panties unlock the secrets to just about everything.
 
I’ve always found hentai mysteries to be an interesting breed. It’s tough enough to pull off an engaging mystery in general, let alone when you have sex scenes happening every 5 minutes. The Mystery of Nonomura Hospital is no exception, offering us a fairly ordinary and completely unsurprising hospital murder mystery that is really neither suspenseful nor mysterious. I can’t say that was particularly unexpected, but unfortunately neither the frequent ecchi comedy bits nor the sex scenes were able to breathe life back into it. The sex scenes are far too few in number and largely show only shadowed areas or covered angles, while the humor is just the same sort of perverted panty spying over and over again. Its fun for a little while, with his clandestine foot mirror and constant breast squeezing, but it gets odd just like the rest of it does. 
 
With a decent English dub and fair animation, The Mystery of Nonomura Hospital had all the makings for a good time. If only the content could have kept its end of the bargain.
 
Miscellaneous:
The Mystery of Nonomura Hospital is filled with dramatic looks and sideways glances, so much so that they become humorous in and of themselves.
