The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Iíve had very mixed results out of NuTechís anime features, so Iím going in here with an open mind.
Initial Reaction: Itís okay.

Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting all consensual sex
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is clear, well balanced, and synchs pretty well with the animated video. The video is pretty good. Itís crisp and clear, and easily matches up with some of the better anime Iíve seen.
Music: The music varies in style nicely throughout the feature, which nicely enhances the scenes.
Menus: The main menu is long, and almost acts as a trailer for the feature before the selections come up. The chapter menu is pretty standard and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a title for the scene.
The FeatureKaren is the long female on the male cheerleading team. There was some opposition to her joining, but through hard work she got there, and even made captain of the team. Now, one of the members on the team is determined to turn her into his sex slave by threatening her with extreme public embarrassment if she doesnít do what he says is for ďthe good of the squadĒ.
After being forced to keep a vibrator inside her during half of their field show, one of her men makes Karen keep a vibe in her pussy during the show. Later he fingers her against her will. When Karen itís found out that Karen isnít wearing panties at the all girl cheerleader squad, the girls punish her by eating her pussy, fingering her, and fucking her with her dildo again. Karen also gives back to the captain of the squad, as they make passionate love instead of practicing. Later sheís fucked by her adversary, who tells the rugby team that Karen will fuck anybody who scores in the game if they win. He also sticks the vibe in her pussy and vibes on her nipples as she holds the flag through the game. She passes out, but comes to when her adversary brings in the rugby team, who all team up on her and takes care of each of her holes.
Karen is a decent piece of anime. It never gets particularly deep, but thatís not a bad thing. Actually, the entire feature is fairly tame in almost every way. There isnít a heck of a lot of plot or motivation, and the sex never gets as dark as it easily could for a feature like this. The sex also builds up nicely through the feature as Karenís will is broken, or she learns that she really loves it depending on how you want to take it. Iím both a little turned off and a little impressed here, as I donít really care for the subject that much but think it was handled quite well here. Karen is a pretty good anime feature that although extremely short, also works great to ease anybody whoís curious about this type of feature into the genre.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery lasts almost a minute with about six seconds per good looking full screen photo. Thereís also weblinks and the B-side of the DVD is filled with trailers for other NuTech anime releases.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Anime, straight, toys, non-consensual sex, lesbian, interracial, gangbang, anal, and DP
Raincoat Factor: Medium
Condom Usage: None needed
The Bottom Line:Currently, most NuTech Anime DVDs can be found online for between $11 and $25 with most stores offering them for under $15. This is a little high here, as the feature doesnít even last a half hour and there arenít any real extras to mention. The feature is pretty well done, as are the technical aspects.
Note to NuTech Digital: I would have liked this DVD a heck of a lot better if you would have made it long enough to feel worthwhile. I think short, independent features like this really should be released as double or triple features!
