Interspecies Reviewers (Japanese: 異種族レビュアーズ, Hepburn: Ishuzoku Rebyuāzu) is a Japanese fantasy sex comedy manga series written by Amahara and illustrated by masha. It has been serialized through Nico Nico Seiga's manga website Dragon Dragon Age[f] since August 2016 and since collected in five tankōbon volumes published by Kadokawa. The series is licensed in English by Yen Press. A 12-episode television anime adaptation produced by Passione aired from January 11 to March 28, 2020.

Synopsis[edit]

In a world where many different humanoid species exist and prostitution is legal, there exist various brothels for each kind of species with "succu-girls", who have succubus blood running through them. As each species has different opinions on how each succu-girl works for them, various brothel visitors have become reviewers, rating their experiences with various succu-girls and posting them in the local tavern. The series largely centers on a human named Stunk, an elf named Zel, and an angel named Crimvael.

Anime[edit]

On June 28, 2019, Kadokawa announced that the manga would receive a television anime adaptation produced by Passione.[40] The 12-episode series was directed by Yuki Ogawa and written by Kazuyuki Fudeyasu, with character designs by Makoto Uno and music composed by Kotone Uchihigashi.[1] Junji Majima, Yūsuke Kobayashi, and Miyu Tomita (the voice actors of Stunk, Zel, and Crimvael, respectively) performed the opening theme song "Ikōze☆Paradise" (イこうぜ☆パラダイス, lit. "Let's Go Paradise") and the ending theme "Hanabira Ondo" (ハナビラ音頭, lit. "Flower Petal Ondō").[41] The series premiered on AT-X on January 11, 2020, with a censored version later airing on Tokyo MX, BS11, KBS, and SUN.[42] In February 2020, Tokyo MX cancelled its broadcast due to "changes in circumstances within [the station]", while SUN cancelled future airings of the series at the behest of channel company's management.[4][5] It began airing on GBS on February 28, 2020[6] and on BBC on March 7, 2020.[7]

The anime was licensed in North America by Funimation, which simulcasted the first three censored episodes with English subtitles and later released a dubbed version of the first episode.[43][44] However, the company removed the series from its online streaming platform on January 31, stating that it "fell outside of [Funimation's] standards."[45] On February 1, the company's French subsidiary Wakanim announced that it would discontinue the English release, but continued offering the anime with French, German, and Russian subtitles.[46] On February 2, Australian subsidiary AnimeLab announced that it would continue simulcasting the series in Australia and New Zealand after "adjusting [its] sourcing of materials."[46] On February 6, Amazon Prime Video removed the anime from its service.[47] Critical Mass Video will release the anime on Blu-ray in 2021.[48]

As the New Year arrives and the reviewers find their favorite joints already booked, the fairy brothel owner introduces them to a dream eater brothel where they can revisit their choice of succu-girls inside their dreams.

Reception[edit]

In August 2017, the manga was awarded the "DLsite Award" by Media Factory's manga news magazine Da Vinci and the streaming service Niconico.[63]

The anime was controversial because it walked "the thin line of how explicit anime can be" as Isiah Jones of CBR noted.[64] Stig Høgset of THEM Anime Reviews called the show "surprisingly entertaining" and sex positive while saying that it is "well thought out" with many of the sex workers having "distinct personalities" and said the show got away with a lot when it came to imagery.[65][h] Høgset added that the show bends the viewer's "expectations out of shape," felt uncomfortable with some parts of the show, noted that the language used in the show is direct, and praised the show for being "animated pretty well." He concluded the review by saying that the show is among one of the better "sex positive shows out there" and called it a "new record in openly sexual fun" but cannot be considered hentai, giving the show a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.[65]
