Orgy of Fallen Expectations

Back in late 2006 I finished the subtitles on a rarely seen hentai OVA by the name of Datenshi-tachi no Kyouen/Orgy of Fallen Angels. It's a sick, twisted, perverse piece of pure and unflinching exploitation and I couldn't have been happier to have worked on it.


The funny thing is now I could keep the distinctly grungy VHS cover as-is and market it as a "Grindhouse Edition".

Based on an even more explicit manga by a one Dirty Matsumoto (who'd also write the script for the pinky violence feature Sex Hunter), Orgy tells the story of a family who gets in way over their heads. The younger sister owes the yakuza money, and when she can't pay they decide to take their fee out on her supple young flesh instead. The boss having decided that she isn't enough, the poor fool sells out both her elder sister, and her pre-teen niece, who's forced to watch as her own mother and aunt are defiled and violated. The boss, deciding that he's waited long enough, takes the little girl to her chamber, and... well, saying any more would kill some of the awesome power that this show carries, but noting that I've since nick-named it "I Spit On Your Loli" probably does the trick.

As this was done on the quick after much of my dilusions of building Kentai Films up into being the next Cannibal King or whatever the hell I was trying to do, the disc lacks menus and I only checked the subtitles twice instead of the usual dozen OCD passes. I don't feel like building the menus in photoshop from scratch and linking them and all the bullshit that entails, and even my lazy subtitles are usually above par (no worse than speedsubbers that's for damn sure), so for a disc nobody's ever heard of and that I have virtually no materials to work with, the disc starts, it plays, and when it's over it ends. I'm sure everyone will deal with it. There are chapter stops and the subtitles are removable via the remote, but it's far from fancy. Should I get a crazy hair up my ass I can always dump the A/V files with subs on a new disc with menus and whatever else, but at least what's available now is finished and anyone who wants a copy can let me know.

So, that's the "productive" update for the week. I'm feeling like ass for personal reasons and may not get a lot done in the coming weeks (as if I ever do), but I haven't given up totally, and with MAKAI TOSHI SHINJUKU having gone well expect to see some more R2 patches in the future on ADC, assuming it comes back of course. I've got one disc on my desk just waiting for the treatment, it's just a matter of me kicking myself in the balls hard enough for me to actually do something about it. Also, Makai Toshi Shinjuku needs a slight edit to restore subtitles that were originally overlays on the CPM DVD. Fucking Atari generated credits and whatnot... blah.
