Isshyo ni Sleeping: Sleeping with Hinako

Take one good look at this screenshot. That’s this OVA in a nutshell.

This is the story of a girl called Hinako. She goes to sleep. And she is trying to lose weight. And she is in love with you.

This is yet another time, The Pop Culture Historian throws caution right into the wind and jumps into something a bit unorthodox, and I have yet to see something more unorthodox than Sleeping with Hinako. I’ll be totally blunt and tell you this basically is softcore anime porn. The camera shows loving shots of things like her backside and her immense boobs (did I mention she appears to be a school-age girl?) as she sleeps. Every so often, the sleeping is interrupted to show dreams of Hinako weighing herself. Also she hits on the camera as if breaking the fourth wall. All in all, this OVA was hilarious in a kind of morbid way, but my review can be best put as:


I was hesitant to even classify this post as an anime review because I know this is exactly an example people will use to reinforce the negative stereotype of anime either being Pokemon or porn.

Score: 0/4
