A more down to earth installment.

What They Say:
Hentai Heaven Collection 7: Two Fetish Freaks and the Psychic contains Nasty Thoughts, Dirty Deeds; Panty-Monium; and Cat Play Punishment

The Review:
Audio:
The audio presentation for this series brings us the original Japanese language track in stereo as well as the new English language dub, both of which are PCM produced. The show is fairly standard material for hentai shows in that it’s dialogue/moan driven and works the full feeling without a lot in the way of directionality. Not that it needs it since it tends to be pretty focused. There’s not a lot to it outside of these moments since there’s no “action” in the traditional sense and the focus is mostly just on the two main characters and their interactions through dialogue and copious amounts of sex. These are well played though and achieves the results it wants.

Video:
Originally released in 2014 and 2015, the transfer for the three OVA series are presented in their original aspect ratio of 1.78:1 in 1080p using the AVC codec. The episodes overall for each show has a pretty good look overall with its designs and animation with some good detail and some very fluid sequences. Most of it is fairly standard in style and quality though, which means it at least avoids the very low rent designs that we get with some hentai from time to time. The transfer captures the look of things well with clean lines, solid colors, and some good pop throughout. The detail where it stands out is pretty good, especially in some of the clothing choices from time to time, and seeing it in high definition definitely gives it a nice boost in terms of color quality and vibrancy.

Packaging:
The packaging for this release comes in a standard-sized Blu-ray case where the front cover goes for a nice breakout of the three shows with the layout so you get a good sense of them. It’s one that places them next to each other with just enough to show off the designs. I like the character designs so they’re appealing here, though the font for the collection name doesn’t do much for me. Each is listed with their individual titles on the front cover as well, which is really nice. The back cover does a three-way split where we get a smaller version of the usual covers. The logos are along the top and we get a decent little summary of the premise, the extras, and even good shots from the show. Production credits are easy to read and the technical grid along the bottom breaks out the disc as a whole with how it’s put together. No show related inserts are included nor is there a reversible cover.

Menu:
The menu design for this release works pretty nicely with how it has to handle three distinct properties with it. The main menu that we get is similar to the idea of the cover where we get the three properties side by side but using the full unzoomed and uncensored imagery that was used for the Japanese home video releases. We get to select which show we want and within that submenu it has the fuller image there and the standard navigation and setup for the shows as well as the extras. It’s done with good colors and an eye for design that works as the artwork and everything complements each other well. The layout does allow for moving to the other OVA easily as well which is a big plus. I definitely like it since it lets us have more artwork and each show get a distinctive menu and section of it.

Extras:
Nothing this time.

Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
One of the best things about hentai in the last few years is the growing accessibility of it for fans that gets us past the usual hardcore/violent material that had dominated for so long. Getting to see so much more romantic material, comedy material, relationship material, in the manga side of it has certainly reminded that there’s a lot more to what’s out there. The anime side doesn’t produce this kind of show as often as one would like, and getting them brought over is even harder, but having been a fan of hentai since the ’80s, well, getting some fun material that doesn’t involve evil men dominating their partners is welcome. I’ve no problem with that kind of material – we’ve reviewed a metric ton of it over the years – but this kind is what I find more appealing.

Nasty Thoughts, Dirty Deeds (Otime Hime):
The opening tale comes from a chapter of manga produced by Lapis Lazuli and it focuses on a young couple that are dating, Satoru and Megumi. Megumi’s pretty popular and attractive. Satoru’s your standard guy but he has an ability that seems to kick in with just her in that he can read her mind. So, when the two are sitting around in her bedroom one evening, her thoughts begin to turn lewd and before she knows it he’s doing some of the things she’s thinking of. It starts simple from being fondled and kissed and then into more passionate material. It’s so accurate at times that she really does manage to suspect something and tries to figure out if he really can read her mind by going for some mildly depraved stunts. Which are on her mind and which he’s able to pull together and work with. She wants to be a bit frustrated by all of this but he delivers on the mental requests so well that her subconscious and conscious self come up with that she really can’t complain. It’s cute and silly even if it gets a little rough.

Panty-Monium (Fetikano):
This story is an amusing one as we’re introduced to Shuu and his obsession over Hime, a young woman that he saw buying flowers every day. Her beauty drew him in and he manages to get into something of a stronger relationship with her to the point where she lets him indulge in his fetishes, which she’s not keen on. Mostly, it just starts as him laying on the floor with her standing above as he’s into the view of butts in panties and it just goes downhill from there. Stockings, knee-socks, panties, everything that draws him to the female form and she’s willing to wear them for him as he gets all worked up and goes the distance with her. Hime is a little weirded out by it but lets everything continue on because he’s pretty good at everything overall but it’s amusing listening to her question him on things and his passion toward the various fetish articles of clothing and just how they work on him.

Cat Play Punishment (Konojo ga Nekomimi ni Kigaetara):
The final story goes a bit further in some ways than the other with some of its play but it mostly focuses on costume play. We get Haruna and her boyfriend Shogo where she lost a fighting game against him and now she has to do whatever he says for the rest of the day. He’s ready for that with some cat ears but it progresses quickly to fuller costume and some sexual humiliation, such as taking her to a club where she gets manhandled hard. When it’s just the two of them and things feel a bit more consensual it works better as hentai always loves playing up the no’s meaning yes. The variety of the costumes isn’t deep but it’s welcome and seeing how she gets into both the cosplay aspect and some of the other toys that come into the picture is fun, going so far as to really surprise him by how much she’s into it when he’s not around.

In Summary:
As with most of these releases, even if the material isn’t up your alley in one particular story, take a chance on listening to the dub afterward as seeing it as a comedy might change your view. Some of the lines they come up with in it are hilarious and it’s in that weird place where I don’t mind the lack of accuracy too much, even if that makes me a traitor to faithful translations. This installment has three decent OVAs that come in at full-length for each of them but they’re mostly smaller and more pared-down pieces, adapting from manga chapters by popular creators and kept simple. But there’s appeal in that because it’s a slice of life closer to what some of us experience as opposed to aliens, spirits, and other things. Definitely worth checking out for the hentai fan.
