Review:
With her husband's abrupt and untimely passing less than a month ago, Taeko is still in mourning. As the weeks passed however, this young widow found herself in desperate need of the pleasure her husband used to bring her, and soon discovered her daughter's tutor to be the perfect target for her much needed release. But with her brother-in-law Kaori arriving at the estate any day now, things could get much more interesting. Not just because of the legal wrangling afoot, but because he has the same penchant for the master slave relationship that his dead brother did. Of course, one isn't sure if that's something Taeko is looking forward to or not, but just to be on the safe side, you better watch what you drink!
 
Full of sexual mischief and almost endless anal ecstasy, Widow is a rather unique title that puts more of the power in the hands of the female lead than it does anyone else. Taeko is both sweet and reserved, at least on the outside, but on the inside she's a sex loving machine that is ready to do whatever it takes to get her way. When Kaori arrives at the estate he seems to think things are going to go his way, with some sort of legal debate up in the air and numerous women for him to conquer. And while he does succeed in dominating both his niece Chiyoko and her female tutor Miyuki, this seems to be all by Taeko's design. With her constantly drugging everything he drinks, you're not quite she if she is trying to slowly kill him or if his perverse sexual acts are the result of some sort of aphrodisiac. Whatever the case may be, Kaori is having quite a lot of fun thinking he's in control. 
 
Unfortunately, just when things are getting good and Taeko finally makes her move, the OVA ends with the always perilous To Be Continued that's never going to happen. It's a real shame too, because the two episodes we got were really quite a lot of fun, with loads of sexual deviancy as just about every sex scene results in some sort of ass play. Not to mention the inclusion of dido's and anal beads just to lighten things up. With the false male domination and interesting twist on the defenseless widow setup, Widow is really quite an enjoyable title that would have only gotten better if it could have been completed.
 
Possibly the most interesting part of Widow has to do with the English language track, which unequivocally takes the piss out of the entire release. With dialogue so ridiculous that is walks the line between stupid and hilarious, it's amazing just how far into left field they went with it. In a sense it's so over-the-top that it works, but if you're actually looking to view Widow through a more serious lens than I would definitely stick with the Japanese language track. The technicals offer the same type of dichotomy, with the animation and level of detail both having their high and low points. Most of the time, however, both are good enough to keep all the naughty bits going on enjoyable, which is key for a hentai to achieve. Though the three minutes worth of flashbacks during the second episode weren't doing anyone any favors.
 
While Widow may not be groundbreaking or even finished, it's still quite an enjoyable hentai title with an intriguing setup and spicy sex scenes. It was definitely better than I thought it was going to be, and a third episode would have really given us something special.
 
Miscellaneous:
I couldn't wait to see all the interesting things Takeo had planned for Kaori... oh well.
