Leave it to the Japanese to produce a high school teen sex comedy that centers on a serial rapist.

The setting is Eros High. A geeky student day dreams about sex with Misa, the beauty queen and track star, during class. When he starts moaning her name out loud, the pack of girls beat him to a pulp. The adult staff sit in the teacher’s lounge and remark upon the situation. A creepy guy starts hanging around the school watching the girls whilst holding his pet pig. When Misa and her two bosom buddies are abducted by girls from the rival school, the stranger saves the day by raping their leader.

It seems he was incarcerated in three reform schools, then expelled from five schools, and has now transferred to Eros High. He publishes a flyer announcing his intention to rape every girl in the school, culminating with Misa. Then he proceeds to do exactly that. This being a comedy, the girls get into it after about 10 seconds, to the point that they demand repeat performances. But Ryo is a rapist with ethics – never the same girl twice.

If you can stand the concept of a serial rapist, then this is a solid Nikkatsu entry. The three lead actresses are quite engaging and there is some slapstick and silly hijinks, but the focus of the film are the rape set pieces. They are quite inventive and imaginative, and after the token resistance, they become sexy as well. There is lots of female nudity, but carefully directed with surprising restraint and taste.

The DVD:

Another quite respectable release in the Nikkatsu Erotic Films Collection, presented in anamorphic widescreen, Japanese mono soundtrack, and removable English subtitles. A folder contains original poster art and some historical background from Jasper Sharp. There is no optical fogging with this title.

Just take the ’81 slasher spoof Student Bodies, replace the murders with rapes, and you will have a general idea of what to expect. A low budget bad taste extravaganza that could very well be the funniest rape film ever made. That doesn’t mean everyone will laugh.
