Fun Time Girls Hentai Anime DVD Review

6 min read

If there’s one thing sex should be a lot of the time, it’s fun!

What They Say:
Wet, wild, and willing…

What happens when you lasso a bunch of man-crazed ladies and let them loose on the streets of Tokyo? Mayhem, debauchery, and fornication! These women are on the hunt and you’re the prey!

The Review:
Audio:
The audio presentation for this release is like the majority of clip shows at this point as it has only an English language track in stereo encoded at 192kbps. The audio track is fairly decent for the most part but it’s very dependent on the individual clips as some of them have a bit more noise at higher levels, some are slightly muffled and a couple are a bit lower, but they are all for the most part very easy to understand and free of serious problems. You may want to keep the remote handy to adjust the volume on some clips though.

Video:
Comprised of clips from across several years, the transfer for this series is presented in its original full frame aspect ratio. Similar to the audio department, the quality of the transfer is really dependent on the clip itself as each of them come from very different places and different kinds of source quality. The ones with a bit more of a budget tend to look better while others have a soft and fuzzy feel to them. The actual authoring and encoding looks to be done just right but with a lot of the low quality source material, the DVD is just showing off the flaws in it all the more. This isn’t the kind of show where you jump up and down looking for pristine quality to begin with but it is for the most part in the realm of acceptable.

Packaging:
Like most releases from ASM, there’s a clean and hard cover here and the hard cover almost always is the one that’s facing out. The front cover is the same for both with one of the girls being up against the wall with a panicked look on her face. The clean version uses the same but adds some underwear onto her and uses some cleaner pictures along the bottom to enhance it. It also changes up the name of the release from Fun Time Whores to Fun Time Girls. The back cover of the hard version has a quick idea of what the show is about and has lots of various sized images here that shows the girls having fun and one big piece of artwork. The clean version just has some larger clothed artwork of one of the scenes and that’s about it. No show related inserts are included with this release.

Menu:
The menus for this release goes for the the gusto with some heavy skin showing here with one of the girls looking back over herself as clips play in the background. There’s some good colors to be had here that keeps things popping and looking good so it’s definitely appealing from the start. The layout is good looking in general though and it’s easy to navigate and get around. With only English language here, the default selections were not an issue and the menus performed well. The top level menu does include a selection for just hitting the money shots as well which is amusing.

Extras:
The only included extra is a five minute long video gallery of still shots from the various clips.

Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
When adult anime compilations are put together for various themes, it’s admittedly easier to go with the more disturbing and darker fetishes that are out there than something that’s fun. Fun is the cornerstone of a good, healthy sexual relationship but it’s sorely lacking in the world of adult anime and that continues to make me sad since there’s something really enjoyable about watching characters engaging in the act, laughing, smile and just getting different kinds of thrills at the same time. So when those kinds of releases come along, it’s pretty easy to treasure them and find them to have good replay value. And Fun Time Girls certainly seems to promise that from the title.

Which is why it’s actually amusing on a whole other level. Out of the sixty minute run time, it feels like a good half of it is related to the F3 release. And I love me some F3. In fact, it’s the first real comedy hentai I had seen ages and ages ago that even without subtitles just had me laughing out loud with it. It runs through some of the non-weird scenes from the show (i.e. no possessed flying lobster stuffed animals) but it doesn’t hold back from just being silly, such as the excessive almost literal jackhammering that the girls give each other. The F3 scenes are the highlight of the release but at the same time it just made me want to bring out my F3 disc itself again and watch it with subtitles.

Beyond the F3 material though, it’s pretty unmemorable and for the most part doesn’t actually feel like it’s fun. Well, it’s fun for certain characters, but it’s the kind of somewhat domineering material that most hentai is made up of and that change the mood of it all. There’s something very different between the two types of clips that come into play here and the darker stuff just has a different kind of fun to it that doesn’t really represent what the show should be. It’s not badly animated or anything, though it’s kind of basic for a lot of it, but there isn’t anything all that memorable about it either, especially in comparison to what the disc starts with and spends nearly fifteen minutes on. That sets the tone and the rest of the disc, until it hits more F3 material again, just doesn’t live up to it.

In Summary:
Fun Time Girls is the kind of show that could really be a whole heck of a lot of what the title promises with fun but it only serves it up about half the time. And that half the time is definitely really fun, but it just made me want to go back to the full release it came from itself rather than watch more of this dub-only compilation. When the disc shifts to other clips, it doesn’t connect quite as well though there is some decent material to it. It just suffers from being unmemorable compared to what it starts with and that’s what hurts it in the end. The general lack of truly fun, happy and silly adult anime out there is one of the problems with the genre and it’s a hard one to change because at this point in time, it just doesn’t sell like it did in the 90’s. And that’s unfortunate.
