Pros: +++ very original content
+++ no, make it EXTREMELY original content
++ LOTS of content
++ obviously VERY expensive and unusual setups
+ pretty good overall video quality
+ CCBill as a processor
Cons: --- Japanese-only with no dubbing or subtitles
-- infamous Japanese pixelation
-- no ZIPped downloads (downloading 24 pieces per episode is REALLY annoying).
- encoding quality is rather poor for the bandwidth
- XDiv only
- site design
Bottom Line: This site is SO unusual, that it will most likely cause immediate "love or hate" feeling for many people.

The content is EXTREMELY unusual. What about all-nude all-girl orchestra playing Mozart or all-nude Swan Lake ballet? Unless the content is stolen from some other site, I don't think you'll find something like this elsewhere. And they have TONS and TONS of content (they claim 392G, and they're probably accurate about it, but see below). Now to the bad. First of all, all the dialogs are in Japanese, and they're important for the storyline (yes, there IS storyline there) and translation (either dubbing or subtitles) would be VERY useful. Then, all movies are "pixelated" (as it is common in Japan).

The rest of my ranting is about technical issues. Movies are HUGE (episode can be 2hours, and with 1.2-1.6Mbit/s encoding they easily take 1-1.5G each). To add injury to insult, these 1-1.5G are split into 6-min downloads, so it's 20-24 separate files per episode, ouch. And while encoding quality isn't bad, it's definitely isn't the best for the bandwidth (I've seen much better than 768x540 in 1.6MBit/s), plus only in XDiv, which I consider as a minus too.

Bottom line: if you're into Japanese girls or into VERY unusual setups, take a look at the site, what you see in previews is what you get (but keep in mind that there won't be any English there), and then you'll either love it or hate it.

badandy400 (103) 6 minute clips! Grrr...the site had my attention for a minute there. I really do not feel like needing to merge the videos together. A lot of simes site will have 3 or 4 splits and I can live with that, but 20 or so would be very annoying and need to be merged.

Sounds like a downloader's nightmare!

As I've said, it's love or hate. You seem to be on "hate" side :-). Right, it is downloader's nightmare, but for some people (like me) looking for original content it can be worth it.

It really did sound like something I would love to see. I am just worried about the downloading frustrations that might come with it.

I was the same way with ALS Scans. I really liked the content, I just could not stand the site. It was so hard to get around and downloading was terrible.

Well, you need to weigh pros and cons to decide :-). Personally I think it was a pretty good deal for me, but YMMV.

You mean "affiliated" as they share content or that they just have the same owners or something? Thanks in advance.

Sure, it wasn't my point to have everybody join :-). I'm just sharing my own very subjective feelings about the site, and it is always up to reader to decide if to join or not. Unfortunately, there is no "holy grail" of porn out there, especially if looking for something original :-(.

If you go to the site and click on "pictures", you'll see what I mean. I have been in 88, but not being a member here, I don't know if they share content.

I see now, thanks. This is a pretty small part of Zenra and doesn't really what I'm looking for there, but it's good to know anyway.
