Dokyuu Hentai HxEros – 03 – The Dream is Over

We rejoin the Super HxEros in the middle of a battle with pixy-like kiseishuu with a penchant for stealing underwear. Momozono Momoka unleashes her powers (and loses her clothes), while Kirara’s would-be decisive blow has no power due to her presently low stores of H-energy. To add insult to injury, the kiseishuu nabs her underwear.

It’s then, and on numerous occasions when upper and lower bodies of characters are prominent—whether wearing underwear or not—that we learn there are two kinds of censorship in DHH: the four-pointed stars that appear when characters are in HxEro Mode, and the classic “soupy fog” of various colors that completely obscures partial or total nudity.

Frankly, around halfway through this episode when we were learning about Momoka’s long-held resentment of her well-endowed model of a big sister in one of the most generic and half-assed backstories in recent memory, my enthusiasm for this show went *poof*—lost into one of those censoring clouds.

After Momoka’s ill-advised long soy milk bath (from which Retto must rescue her), the underwear thieves strike the girl’s locker room, stealing Kirara’s classmate Yuna’s “lucky pair” for her date later that day. Retto ends up tracking the culprit down and retrieving the pair, and Kirara actually does him a solid by vouching for him to Yuna & Co.

Yuna then takes Kirara underwear shopping, with the latter hoping to gain some H-energy with a lucky pair of her own. We then learn that Yuna’s date is with female senpai, which is oddly treated like some kind of punchline, even though her friends are apparently aware Yuna likes girls.

That night Kirara sneaks into Retto’s room to sleep back-to-back with him in her new sexy underwear, hoping it will charge up her H-energy. Both she and Retto remember when they were kids sleeping under a kotatsu and he initially tried to draw on her sleeping face, only to find it too cute and froze up. Their futon session is disrupted by the discovery of Tenkuuji sleeping between them, something I highly doubt they’d have not noticed until that moment!

Kirara finally manages to unleash her HxEros power again, though it happens quite randomly while she’s in bed, and she ends up wasting all of that stored-up H-energy without even accidentally defeating a kiseishuu boss this time. So basically, she has a lot to learn about controlling her clearly considerable powers so they’e actually useful.

I’d usually refrain poking holes in the logic of an ecchi anime involving battling alien libido vampires, but with its branching plots this episode felt so long and ungainly and the censoring so considerable (no doubt since I watched the broadcast version), I found myself gradually checking out. Going by the three-episode rule, I’ve decided to pass on the remainder of Dokyuu Hentai HxEros.

  1. I love it when I make a rash call early on a show that seems to start well haha.
    Well HxEro took a nose dive by departing from the elements that made the comedy work in the previous episodes. The jokes felt shallow this episode and the fan service gratuitous, Is it irredeemable? Maybe. Will I keep watching?- For now anyway….

    1. Yeah, I doubt you and I were alone in being optimistic after those first two episodes!

      Things crashed and burned fast for me. Was the fourth episode any better?

      1. Alas no (tentacles). Episode 5 revived the Kirara/Rett dynamic but it didn’t make a lot of difference. Oh and we now have a friendly rebel kiseishuu who has adopted Kirara’s form and seems to have joined the good guys. So now we have two Kiraras (one with a fang and a “playful attitude”) and we have the real Kirara. Shakespeare this show isn’t.. Still Super HxEros isn’t the worst ecchi comedy this season. That dubious honor has to go to a show named “Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan”, whose premise is way dumber than HxEros, and combines that with some of the clumsiest and most unattractively drawn nudes and general artwork I’ve ever seen. Peter Grill makes Super HxEros look like a Miyazaki production lol.
