Before Cool Devices and other such hentai anime series that went beyond the boundaries of “traditional smut”, there was Cream Lemon. What is inside are pure, unadulterated stories of forbidden love and fantasies that have been introduced in a decade where people’s idea of an adult anime is something that goes just a little beyond kissing.
When I first saw and reviewed this package, Cream Lemon was no longer available in the market. I rented an old old old VHS back then. When I was reinstalling the hentai reviews, however, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this Cream Lemon is now available on DVD.

I had never been more exhausted in my whole life—and all I did was sit there and watch episode after episode of young Catholic school girls do the naughty thing! Whew!
That aside, we have to get back to the facts. Cream Lemon is actually a collection of somewhat surreal stories that have different settings and situations in different points in time. The tales range from fantasy to comedy to suspense and mystery. Most of these chapters are so individualistic that they can stand alone and be sold as separate titles from the Cream Lemon series. Would you believe Project A-ko was originally intended to be part of Cream Lemon?
Cream Lemon, which was first released in 1984, is actually considered the very first hentai anime set—one with in-depth storylines and endearingly pretty, classic (late 1970s to early 1980s style) artwork. It is also musically complimented by an ensemble of beautiful classical pieces that provide a slightly dreamy air to the scenes. Many hentai fans believe that we should thank the creators of Cream Lemon for the new breed of h-anime that have proven that adult films need not be defined by smut and smut alone. It does deal with a lot of heavy perversions ranging from S&M;, male rape (by a bunch of females, that is), bondage, torture, yuri (lesbian love) and incest. Some of the plot lines might even be responsible for the birth of the adult bishoujo games genre, seeing as how the trend of fantastical wet-dream-inspired scenarios abound our online shopping stores these days.
My favorite Cream Lemon? It’s Black Cat Mansion, a short about a handsome and exceedingly virile young student who finds himself employed by a family of sexually disturbed females. This theme alone is already bishoujo game material, so you can probably understand why I find this one amusing even though it seems like an animated hentai Twilight Zone.
If you loved Cool Devices, perhaps you can appreciate a slightly dated similar anime. One thing I can assure you is this: Cream Lemon is a rare exquisite gem that deserves a place in your hentai library.
