Before I begin, a special thanks to Wildarmsheero for getting me interested, as well as all the people who released this shit, and no thanks whatsoever to MyAnimeList and Anime News Network who made this a confusing pain in the ass.
Today, I’d like to tell all of you about a very important discovery that I bet you didn’t know a damn thing about. It is the first hentai OVA EVER, released in 1984. This 6-episode OVA was titled, in what may be considered the ultimate ‘I shit you not’ moment, Lolita Anime. You bet your ass it was chock full of delicious, tiny-breasted lolis. Finding out about this thing was a pain in the ass because that very same year, following it’s example, a different company also released an anime called ‘Lolita Anime’ which has been alternatively titled ‘Uchiyama Aki.’ What made this a pain was that ANN had Lolita Anime, MyAL had Uchiyama Aki, and the only other site I found with info about them was half-convincing me they were the same show. Of course, despite the fact that the shows themselves are rare, there’s actually a pretty extensive Wikipedia article for each of them, possibly to clear that confusion. (Naturally I didn’t find those till I’d already spent an hour gathering the info other ways.) Both the Wikipedia article and the ANN entry claim that episode 4 of the original Lolita Anime is findable online, however (recently?) episodes 2, 3, 4, and 6 have been made available on Tokyo Toshokan.
I’ve thus far watched the 2nd and 4th episodes, and man it’s amazing. As far as being lolis goes, the girls seem to be from the Lucky Star school of high school girls who could pass for about 11, all with petite breasts and tiny bodies. Most of the designs are notably 80s, but still fucking hawt. As mentioned in the Wiki article, some of the characters are meant to resemble popular characters at the time, such as the girl in episode 4 who looks like a loli version of A-ko. Because the show hasn’t been subbed, I can’t really say anything about the story except that there was one, as there were the usual talky bits in each episode, but they definitely had a satisfying amount of action in each.
The most absolutely awesome thing about watching these, though, is that every hentai since has been blatantly influenced by this original. It really had everything. There were the discolored or sparkling cumshots, the weird motifs (like a hose shooting water to represent cum), parts where a dick would randomly be shining or invisible, sex scenes where the background would be some random environment, a part where a girl almost gets raped by an ugly old man, plain old rape, bribe sex, apparent incest, bondage, and of course my absolute favorite, each episode had an obligatory lesbian sex scene! It was fucking glorious. Plus, it was all UNCENSORED! Apparently laws were a little different in the 80s or something because there were actually certain positions which has some kind of censor on them, but others were just fine I guess. I can’t give an explanation for that one.
The whole thing is surprisingly good-looking, and shines with the brilliance of a team who knows how to make something good with a low budget. And believe me, the budget was probably low because there were parts where it would do a little frame-by-frame thing or otherwise reuse images, however they more than made up for the lack of fluidity with the way they moved. The sex scenes were what I would almost like to call ‘realistic’. The girls’ bodies convulsed and curled and reacted and the sex scenes were all of pretty decent length. It was… very hot.
Getting away from just the awesomeness of this OVA itself, I was pretty surprised to find out about just how popular loli was back then. You see, it’d be one thing if, like in todays market, there were tons of hentai and a bunch of them were loli, but this wasn’t the case. While there were more being made from 1984 onward, there really weren’t that many hentai made in the 1980s overall and wouldn’t you know it, most were loli. To give you just an impression of how immense this loli craze was, though, we take you to THE longest hentai ever made, Cream Lemon. This OVA covered all kinds of stories, tons of genres, and by it’s end catered to whatever fetish you probably have, totally 40 MOTHERFUCKING EPISODES. There are various episodes available online wherever you find them, so naturally I gave the first ep a go.
This show has a lot more focus on the story than it’s predecessor, and more than most hentai I’ve seen (this one is subbed, BTW). The first episode was about the show’s two recurring characters, a brother and sister who were falling in love and naturally fuck by the episode’s end. The sex scene was just like those in Lolita Anime, leading me to the impression that they would be similar to that in all the 80s shows, though Cream Lemon had a big ass lens flare to censor the boy’s cock and block out the loli’s snatch, though only when it was open. Needless to say, the girl was a super-awesome loli.
So there you have it – the 80s, just like today, were all about fucking little girls, so before you go saying that modern anime is full of lolis and shit, look back at the original. I took the liberty of adding Lolita Anime to MyAL, so go watch it and add it to your list.
