Cream Lemon (くりいむレモン or くりぃむレモン, Kurīmu Remon) is an early hentai series. The first Cream Lemon OVA was released in August 1984, though Cream Lemon was not the first hentai OVA. The first was Lolita Anime, released earlier in February 1984.

Related to the Cream Lemon series is the Project A-ko series, which was meant to be the third installment of Cream Lemon but changed while in production to be a mainstream title. The only remaining indication is the bath scene with B-ko.

Adult entertainment company Excalibur Films dubbed, edited, and released in English five Cream Lemon OVAs as parts two and three of their three-volume Brothers Grime X-Rated Cartoons series.


Cream Lemon is a collection of somewhat surreal stories having different settings and situations at different points in time, with genres including fantasy, comedy, suspense, sci-fi, action, drama and mystery. The overriding theme of the series is sex of almost any kind imaginable. Most chapters stand alone as separate titles, having no relation to any other stories within the Cream Lemon series. The main recurring character is Ami, who has an incestuous relationship with her brother Hiroshi.

Cream Lemon often focuses on unrealistic and exaggerated sexual themes. One example is the story of a girl who does not like sex because of a series of rapes in her family. To cure this, the school counselor orders her to strip in front of the art class and masturbate herself to the point of orgasm. She then has public sex with a boy and likes it, causing the whole class to start having sex. Others are similarly surreal.

Manga Artist series[edit]

Due to the social circumstances after the arrest of Tsutomu Miyazaki ("The Otaku Murderer"), the culprit in the "Tokyo/Saitama Serial Kidnapping Murders of Little Girls" case, the three episodes of this series, except for the "Magic City Astaroth", had sex scenes removed and were released as the "VHS series". Later, the full works were released as "full versions". "Magic City Astaroth" was planned to have a sequel, but it was not produced due to the influence of the Miyazaki case.
