A word on Zen Pictures and a video review

Post by rizoboy »

It feels like the world forgot about Zen pictures, including me.

I recently checked out one of their latest (actually their latest) video titled Sexy Heroine Dynamite 3 Glamorous Lady (I love their silly titles) and I have to say it was one of the most solid buys I have made in a long, long time. The heroine, played by adult actress Anri Okita, is a wet dream for Wonder Woman fantasists. She is built like an asian Lynda Carter. Her beatdown is served up by three different villainesses of various proportions. It was a very satisfying beat down and one of the most creative I have seen on film. I know that Zen and their more adult sister site Giga do get repetitive, but there's something about Anri's performance and look that sets this apart.

The asian heroine videos are always a step up in their creative torture deviances, including an electrically charged breast trap and a breast "vice" in this one. It's amazing how Anri is efficient in her fight choreography considering her build, but Zen always seem to get that down right. The most exciting beatdown to her comes at the hands of Naoko Osako, who is quiet large and gives Anri a terribly hard time. I think I like the speed, pace, and variety of the action that Zen seems to put out. You can barely catch your breath to the vicious and tortuous beating Anri gets in this one. She is stomped on, stretched, smacked and fondled at an exhausting level. I love how they simulate the sweat on her.

This is a perfect video to me in so many ways, and most of all in how Anri is able to receive the beating and carry her dignity throughout.

What are your thoughts on Zen's productions? Do you believe they have truly dropped off as many of you mention? It seems that there might be too much of a good thing, as they say. But this video is well worth checking out:

Their stuff looks really great but as a Mac user I can't watch it. I would probably get some movies from them if it was not a requirement using Microsoft media player.

Are they the same as akiba-web.com? I like the variety of their heroines and especially love their use of props and special effects, etc., and they sure aren't shy with their crotch shots! They have some beautiful models and great costumes. I haven't bought from them mostly because I can't seem to view their test movie but I can preview the movies with no problem

Yes, a Ltsrange has mentioned, their one drawback is you can not view their videos on Macs. They are the PG-13 version of their adult akiba-web site. But I STRONGLY recommend you pickup this title, although there is no nudity. Anri Ojita is just too beautiful as Wonder Woman and she is put through copious amounts of totures and beatdowns including breast electrocution and breast clamps! You won't be disappointed.

and here's your SPOILER ALERT if you need it:



She wins in the end

I love their villains. They put effort into costumes etc. And the villains are funky like a giant school ruler or a lady bug or a giant baby in diapers or a giant toy with googly eyes on it.

Can't recall if there's a chloro as I'm not a chloro fan at all but there might be.

What I love is the way they cast a large villainess to confront WW. She is such a stark contrast to her. For me that's a tremendous turn on especially as she woman-handles WW

Also: they really concentrate on breast torture if you guys are interested in that. Anri's chest is amazing. Reminiscent of the lovely Lynda Carter.

You have to have a sign in name and password to access the trailer. I can tell you this does have a sweet bear hug scene between WW and the fat villainess. The Villainess squeezes her to the point of exhaustion. In totality, I STRONGLY recommend this video, if you want great variety and excellent fight choreography, creative torture methods, etc. No nudity though, but that doesn't take away from it.

Beware they do install that pirate busters software on your machine and you can only view the video on the machine you download to.

From the admittedly few clips Ive seen Japanese sites like Zen, Akiba and others have far more graphic and violent scenes than "western" sites and their heroines are shown taking incredible beatings and suffering terrible degradations but keep it all strictly fantasy.

Giga (akiba-web) is still tops for me for sure.
Zen is the pg sister site i think (akiba-heroine) - also great.

Ok I bought this. Its pretty good. The girl is HOT! But its a fair amount of gabbing. There is a chloro scene when she is a civilian and lasts about 10 to 20 seconds. Also she is bear hugged and beaten unconscious. Fights are well done.

I believe this is the actress

One thing I would have loved would have been more gratuitous panning over the girl. Rear, cleavage etc. She's got a nice star spangled booty but you don't see much of it.

I've never bought one. Too many problems over the years with their web site, buying videos, watching previews. Nothing but technical problems galore and so I've always been hesitant to risk it for fear that I will end up paying for something I can't even download/watch.

Also, I don't really like the idea of watching a dubbed video or on in a foreign language I can't understand. That just loses so much of the drama.

I've never bought from Zen either. Would love to give them a go, they certainly have fantastic sets and lots that's up my street but I could never get their DRM to work - that is, their sample video never ever plays and I've tried it with three different versions of Windows and all kinds of players without success.

I had to use another machine to watch the trailers and purchase product. I can't use my current machine. I have an old machine I use as my "condom" machine for things like pirate buster purchases etc.

Their DRM is strict as hell. It's the main reason why I'm not planning to get a new version of Windows any time soon, none of my old movies will work. :)

In general I do quite like their movies, but they seem to have a very fixed set of tropes that they employ and once you've seen a few of them they start to get repetitive. It can also be hard to tell with any degree of accuracy what you're getting, for obvious reasons.

The odd thing with Japanese movies in general seems to be that they still do a lot of it through DVD sales, which seems really retro these days. I mean the two superheroine sites mentioned do have downloads of course, but there's a few really huge fetish sites kind of attached onto them handling other fetishes and they're still putting everything on disk. That's quite annoying as there's a lot of stuff out there that looks amazing.

Given the huge amount of japanese stuff that just gets ripped off they probably don't want to make it easier to steal. I wish they did KO fetishes more. The chloros they do are pretty lame. And yes the themes are all the same formula.

I can't talk about Zen, I've only bought stuff from Giga.

For the DRM I had trouble at first too, today I use Windows 8.1 with the Windows Media Player 12 (Version 12.0.9600.17031), so I can pick up the videos and pass the verification viewing test. I don't know how to do it on older versions though ...

For the most I've seen, they have a great acting, long build up to discover the characters, the costumes are very creative and we can find a lot of bizarre and unexpected things, which I just love.

Sometimes we can find some repetitive stuff, like a lot of forced sex with the heroine screaming like she is about to die, not too much my thing, that's why I don't pick every release, plus it can get quite pricy at the end (Which is normal due to the lenght of movies).

The language barrier can be a bit frustrating, but personally it's not that dramatic considering the movies are presented very well visually.

The releases I buy the most are the ones with the Red Glamour Mask, I feel it tends to have the most detailed stuffs, on their site my favorite are the directors Toru Sakata and Ginta Jinji, my number 1 from them is the movie "Horror of a human chair" (The Power Henchwoman Osako Naoko plays in it too, as a sexual feminine parody of E. Honda, very hot).

One other thing bad about their DRM is if you ever change your password (like you had to recover it) ALL your licenses are void and you have to go download the videos again to get them working.

Latest one I got was called Female Combatant Deniel (not a typo on my part, no idea what it referred to). I was hoping it'd be good because the plot such as it appeared looked pretty close to perfect - Army of female combatant types, a heroine trying to wipe them all out, a stealthy infiltration of the base and then boss fight and whatnot. On paper that's pretty much exactly what I'd want, but they kind of fluffed it. Few simple reasons:

- They really, really, like their big continuous horde-vs-heroine fights and they don't work so well with female combatants because it's really obvious their pool of women for fight scenes is too shallow for it.

- I don't know who the guy is who is really, really, into watching a power ranger punching endless women for about half an hour is, but it's not me. I was hoping for a bit of variety. Didn't really get it. Which ties into the point above, it's like the isolate the type of fighting they do worst, then make the whole movie about that one thing.

- Stealthy infiltration bit was really underused.

Was a really promising idea but all the best bits are in the trailer unfortunately. Worth a punt though I suppose.

My favourite movie of theirs out of all of them I think is still the spectacularly awkward titled 'Non-Transforming Heroine - Combatant Torture - Rise Pink'. I mean that's just a tremendous title. Probably just rolls of the tongue in Japanese but it's completely lost in translation. :)

Your guess is as good as mine what the plot is all about but it's a ridiculously hot movie. Or maybe I just like it cos they must have made about a billion movies where a heroine gets raped by a room full of baddies, and this is pretty much the only movie I've ever seen where the heroine basically rapes the room full of baddies. In a good way. They don't often let the heroine get the upper hand like that in the more adult movies (sometimes on the other store of theirs they do), and it's a shame they don't because they absolutely nail it in that film.

See now if that second movie was mixed with the first one I described, that'd basically be some sort of hotness supernova right there. Alas short of learning Japanese, and then learning how to put Japanese into a computer, I have no idea how I'd be able to actually tell them that.

They've had a couple of those women bad guys videos. They just reuse the same pool of girls over and over. And they all die easily and in absurd ways. The brain washing is kind of fun where they take some mall shopping bimbos and brain wash them then make them be bad guys and they really suck at fighting. Its always some power ranger types fighting them too. No real peril for the one hot girl who's the pink or yellow ranger.

I actually like the giant heroine ones better. They seem to do more perverted things in those. Most of their movies are just capture and porn, Rather boring. It really seems like they are stuck in a rut.
