New Age Groper Train Antics
on 1 August 2012
Following a brief intro by the film's lead actress, Megu Fujiura, wherein she assures us that: "she did her best" to entertain us - "Tokyo Train Girls:1 - Private Lessons" wastes no time in presenting the opening titular fantasy scenario of the 'Groper Train' genre - girlz getting felt up by horny guys - during the ultra crowded commuter train rides that many Japanese workers must endure on a daily basis.
After the 'essential' initial 'grope' sequence is over - the, thread-bare, plot focuses on the 'difficulties' faced by cute young female high-school teacher 'Chihiro' when her 'after hours' job as a web 'chat girl' is discovered by one of her porn hound students. He initially sorta coerces his pulchritudinous prof into having sex with him but, when he discovers that the reason his teacher is moonlighting on an internet porn site is to re-pay her own school debts, he becomes increasingly chivalrous in his attitude towards her, his generous sincerity melts Chihiro's 'defences', and their inappropriate! 'relationship' blossoms.
These current 'groper train' flix (this one was originally released in 2009) are shot in hi def video format which give a sense of graphic reality to the features, but they lack a little of the gritty ambience that shot on film features possess. The 'production values' are clean but sparse - I noted a couple of 'sets' (like the lavatory scene) and pieces of furniture used in multiple films. The 'sex' in this installment of the franchise is really soft core. There is a brief 'fantasy' sequence where the infatuated 'student' (Ishii) day-dreams about being pleasured by a dominatrix but, otherwise, its all pretty basic 'simulated' humping fare. Lead actress Megu has a very nice pair of breasts and they get a lot of screen time and she IS pretty cute - which, ultimately, is basically what this flk offers. Personally, despite the crystal clear digital look of it all, I found the total viewing experience less intriguing than the older 'Groper Train' products that have been previously made available for Western viewers. Regardless of the fact that there is, perhaps, more physical time devoted to sex scenes & nudity it all seems a little mundane. No full frontal nakedness in any of these flix (but also no 'fogging') - the usual short Pinku 75 min run time - and only a few 'stills' from the production as 'extras'. Those who enjoy well developed & un-dressed Japanese maidens may find much to ogle here but I wish there was a little more substance and style to this recent offering of 'commuter train' based smut.
