Kink Hentai Anime DVD Review

6 min read

Chips, dips, chains and whips along with a helping of poop.

What They Say:
If your sexual idiosyncrasies border on the bizarre, then these twisted tales of nonconformity will be an intriguing divergence to the same old boring routine. Featuring some of the most shocking scenes in the history of hentai, Kink will take you down a road untraveled, one which will lead you on to the path of deviation and immorality!

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. But unlike all the other cip based releases, this one has a couple of scenes, including the lengthy final one, which is in Japanese with hard subtitles as the original work was never dubbed. 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. What I really hate though is that when they use clips from shows that were originally widescreen and then squeeze them down to the full frame aspect ratio, making the characters all skinny, tall and out of sorts. It happens a couple of times here unfortunately.

Packaging:
The packaging for this release is done in a standard single sized keepcase with a whole lot of material to what we see on the front cover. There are no hard and soft variants here as there is no reversible cover and what we get on the main cover is a series of shots from the various clips here spread across in block form with the big Kink logo going across it. There’s plenty of things to see here on the cover, little in the way of faces though, as it just gets down to the business of what the collection is all about. The back cover has just a few more rows of shots and gives over a lot of space to the premise of the release with large text and nothing behind it. The rest is given over to what’s on the disc and the basic technical specs. No show related inserts are included nor is there a reversible cover.

Menu:
The menu design for this release again shows some strong skills as it blends together things well from the show. The prominent feature is along the left half as we get a partial close-up of one of the girls with a ball gag in her mouth. The logo is in front of her as well along the bottom and looks good as it sits atop the navigation strip. Behind all of this is a series of motion clips of various scenes from the show itself. The layout is simple and easy to use and there’s no real setup to be done here, letting you get right into the show.

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)
While we’ve had some compilation releases before that have focused on specific fetishes, Kink just wants to go with whatever it can find and run with it. Of course, one man’s kink is another man’s every day affair so there’s something to be said for that when you get down to it. With this release, we get a lot of clips from several different shows, a couple of repeat performances and some really bad animation. We’re talking like 90’s MS Paint material again and some stuff that seems like it’d be well suited to a mid 90’s “visual novel” kind of game. While others are of better animation style and quality, there are some awkward ones to be had here as well.

This compilation really goes the distance when it comes to how much of a kink and fetish it can deal with, especially since it brings in material from Night Shift Nurses. Those who dislike scatological material will be well suited to avoiding this release as the poop literally flies everywhere. With the good doctor and how he abuses the nurses he works with, it goes pretty far and just like times past when I’ve seen them in the other releases, they continue to churn my stomach. This one includes some fun with eggs and marbles as well as just the poop itself which always, always leaves me cringing.

Other areas of the release deals with a master and servant sequence that gets two showings, one with the master working her over in the kitchen and another when they’re off walking along the city at night. It’s one from a show that I actually like and had seen a few years ago, but it’s also the one that was originally in widescreen. There’s some fantasy oriented material as well here with one woman that’s been captured and strung up, abused until she’s rescued. And the last sequence which runs really long involves a guy who finds a young girl strapped naked to a tree in need of help. They use the gag that she’s actually much older than she looks and she’s there to use her wood nymph style powers to drain him dry, but it’s just plain awkward with the animation design and the character designs. And the whole shoving of a huge piece of wood into her.

In Summary:
Kink works through a couple of different fetishes with this release and they’re definitely ones that will showcase more hardcore ideas and character presentations. It’s not as dark and violent as some hentai can get at times but it does have its share of disturbing material. Of course, what one finds disturbing others find highly enticing, so there’s something to be said for that and the spice of life that is variety. There are plenty of things here that makes me cringe but it’s more the scatological side of it and the abuse of power that comes from certain scenes. Kink shows can definitely be a challenge and very much ones that you have to be in the right frame of mind for or really enjoy in general. A lot of this just didn’t work for me but that’s not me being judgmental.
