In less tasteful hands, this film based an a gekiga (adult manga) by Michio Hisauchi would’ve been a dirty movie with no commercial value. But director Kumashiro once again show’s why he’s the King of Erotica. This is a combination of stories dealing with the ecstatic adventures of high school student Sachiko from Weisser’s book.

Pleasure Campus is a hyper active high school slapstick rape comedy. It’s based on manga, and you can see it (the characters for example are more like from a cartoon than anything usually shot in live action). Kumashiro also uses constant shaky, handheld camera and lots of jump cuts. In the beginning the film feels hilarious and outrageous – utterly offensive, too – but later the endless yelling gets a bit boring. Moving the story out from the school surroundings after the first third is bad move, too. The ending is quite good, however.
