Fish in a trap Why is that every time I play one of my favorite games Anime Roulette, I always seem to get the bullet. Surprisingly this anime was that bullet. Swimming!, was the two sentence plot description that was given. The plot was short and sweet so I thought I'd go for it. The bullet that is this anime is more like a meal hidden under its silver cover. Diving head first (sorry about the pun, ok really bad pun), A Karate Kid meets swimming tale I thought. Light and fluffy a feeling.. In a mere glimpse this film turned into quite interesting dark tale. Underage drinking, gambling, peer pressure, and male on male rape. Yes, male on male rape. I paused for a moment and said " where's the swimming?". I love completely false descriptions. Thankfully this 80's to the maxx! (good thing or bad thing, your choice) film threw me into quite a twisted tale loop. In the long run just your basic soap opera. For it being the 80's it had surprisingly decent audio and video quality. Not 1080p and sadly a soundtrack nothing to write home about, but I have seen and heard much worse from even newer anime. Adults only please. (not for the Pokemon crowd) For the fan of misleading plots. Mediocre at best with a hints of getting better. <div> PandaBeard!</div>
The animation and sound was okay. The story shows what could happen to someone when ends up meeting with some sketchy people which resulted in being forced to drink and smoke despite being a minor then later on, being raped. The idea of those two getting together even after the rape, is disgusting. I don't see how such a relationship would work or why the author thought of such an idea.
Rape is never good, I had to say that first and foremost. I understand this anime is very old and perhaps at the time it was written, the creator's frame of reference for what influenced this story may have been different. In this anime an underaged boy was influenced to go to a bar, forced to drink and smoke, was targeted and raped. I don't care if he may have had feelings for his rapist, he did not consent to being captured and held down by his rapist's friends in the rain; while his attacker raped him. I love boys love anime, but my word was this a let down. It could've been better, thankfully there are other amazing boys love anime out there.
