Rumi's met a lot of guys through her job, and it's probably fair to assume that most of them could be said to have some sort of problem. But a man who literally turns into a beast when he gets turned on may be outside of this perky call girl's field of expertise. Still, a little challenge every now and again stimulates the mind and makes life so much more interesting, so she's willing to give it a shot.

Ah, this was a fun surprise. Judging from the title, I had expected a generic short romance story, but that wasn't what I got. It quickly became clear that this show had a kinky side to it, and for a while I feared it might be out-and-out hentai, but it didn't really cross the line. This was a wild mix of ecchi, comedy, and the supernatural--kind of hard to take seriously, but it takes off running, moves fast and holds your interest with a decent plot. A bizarre, unlikely tale which doesn't make much sense but does make some, and uses comedy to compensate. There are few clear-cut jokes, with punchlines and all, mainly the plot itself is one big, clever joke. The wild characters are also a definite plus. Art and animation are very 80's style, and the show has a hasty, herky-jerky feel to it rather than flowing smoothly. I wasn't laugh-out-louding, but it was fun and thinking back about it brings a grin to my face. I'm glad this one didn't slip through my fingers.

P.S: This show has been awarded Buried Treasure status at ANN.
