I told you this was happening.
The Hentai Genre is either embraced by anime fans, or ignored completely. Both are frankly fine in my view. Wherever you stand on it though, it remains a part of the industry, and therefore it should, when it can be, discussed like all other pieces of work.
Which brings me to this little series, well over a decade old now but for many remains a cornerstone of the entire genre. Some have even called it the “Dragon Ball” of the Hentai genre. So after the cut let’s take a (NSFW) look at the 2001-2003 hentai OVA series: Bible Black.
((THERE WILL BE SOME VERY NSFW IMAGES UP AHEAD. PLEASE READ WITH DISCRETION. I AM NOT FUCKING AROUND. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED))
Hentai are not known for their plot or stories, but Bible Black remains to this day, one of the few hentai that actually has an interesting story and premise. While your mileage may vary on the quality of said story, there is at least a through-line that connects each of the six episodes together. The story stars Minase Taki, your average high school student with all the trappings of a high school life: the childhood friend, the crushes, the boredom, and the angst that comes with it. When Minase comes across a wrapped up black spell-book, the so called “bible black” that grants him magical powers, he wastes no time putting to use, and soon chaos is unleashed on both himself, his friends and his classmates.
If anything can be said about the story of Bible Black is that it shows how human nature can be brought down to it’s raw animal instincts. In the span of this OVA, alliances are formed, betrayed, reformed so many times that it is clear that no one is really on anyone else’s side. Secrets about the school’s past and it’s staff are revealed and it is clear that the story is more than just a “one and done” porno flick. The appearance of the spell book and the dark demonic powers laid within strip away the social norms and personal boundaries put on the cast as events spiral more and more out of control. While I don’t think that Bible Black is trying to say anything at ALL about well, anything. There is an interesting theme spread throughout about passion, lust, and power and what it does to people.
Alright, let’s get to the sex, and BOY is there oodles of it here.
The great thing about Bible Black when it comes to it’s hentai scenes is two things. The first is that the animation, even for the early 2000s is exceptionally well made. While it does sag (heh) a bit in the middle, the first and last episodes still remain excellently animated. Sei Shoujo who created the visual novel the anime came from is a master of the craft, designing each of the girls with bodies that just pop in all the right places. The breasts are perfect, the asses are perfect, the pussies are actually properly drawn, the bodes glisten with sweat, and the expressions aren’t overly gratuitous or down right silly. Hentai is infamous for cutting corners, often looping single scenes over and over again to get the point across, but there is little of any of that here. Bible Black shows a master at work, and each scene (and there are many) do exactly what they are suppose to do, but damn do they do it well.
The second reason comes to the fact that Bible Black pretty much leaves no stone turned when it comes to it’s kinks. Like a well stocked buffet table, Bible Black has something for (almost) everyone. Run through a list of sexual situations or kinks and Bible Black probably does it. Anal, Cowgirl, Rape, Female Rape, Male Rape, Inflation, Mind Break, Mind Control, Consensual, Passionate, Romantic, Tentacle, Gang-bang, Girl on Girl, Futanari. There is pretty much every single hentai genre stuffed into this show. Most hentai often stick with one certain kink, but Bible Black decides to throwing everything AND the kitchen sink into its time, which gives the sex variety and never lets it get boring.
And..yeah…that’s Bible Black. What else can I say? Even if you have never watched a hentai in your life, you have probably come across this series, or heard it referenced if you spend anytime in the Anime community. Even over ten years later it still remains one of the best, if not the best hentai around. While everyone has different tastes, I do believe that in terms of plot, story, animation and of course sex; Bible Black is easily the “Great Work” of the Hentai genre. I don’t think there has been anything like it sense, nor will I think anything come close. It is truly something to behold, even if you only stick around for around 30 seconds.
