Heisei Harenchi Gakuen

Heisei Harenchi Gakuen, or Modern-Era Shameless School, is a modern-day version of Go Nagai’s manga Harenchi Gakuen (Shameless School). The one I saw was this modern day version. It’s a one episode OVA released in 1996. That episode is 47 minutes long.

I was surprised to see the original manga ran from 1968 to 1972. And caused alot of controversy.

The oringinal Harenchi Gakuen was criticized as vulgar because it introduced overt eroticism to children. Male students and teachers were depicted as being preoccupied with catching glimpses of girls’ panties or naked bodies. Many parents, women’s associations, and PTAs protested.

In particular, the PTA protests over Harenchi Gakuen were notorious. Nagai was bombarded with interview requests from newspapers, magazines and TV. So free publicity. Whenever he flew outside of Tokyo, TV cameras were waiting for him. He was branded a “nuisance” and even an “enemy of society”. He, however, had a clear sense of what things he could or could not do with the manga.

At first, Nagai did not think that the opposition was against him, since he was aware of the standards that applied with movies and similar things for an audience below 18 years old. At that time, he never drew sex scenes, avoided pictures of genitals and made nudes cute rather than sexy, though the manga regularly showed male genitals throughout its run, including a castration scene. His fans supported him throughout the PTA protests. They sent him letters where they expressed how they were aware that the adults cracking down on them were reading raunchier stuff than what Nagai was producing.

The PTA managed to prevent the distribution of the magazine in some parts of Japan. As a result of the protests, when the series was about to be cancelled because of the PTA, Nagai changed the theme in Harenchi Gakuen into a more mature and serious matter, from nonsense gags with sexy touches, to a full-scale war where murder was depicted in the bloody way for which many know him. This led to the famous ending of Harenchi Gakuen, symbol of freedom and of rejection of the hypocrisy, where all students and teachers, while defending their freedom of expression, are killed by the PTA and other parental forces. This was the ironic answer that Nagai gave to the PTA. (In the end, this was not the actual ending of Harenchi Gakuen, as the title would subsequently return to publication for several years.)

The protests were not only against the manga, but also against the TV series, which was also extremely popular and remains one of TV Tokyo’s highest-rated programs ever with ratings as high as 32% at its peak.

The manga reboot was ran from 1994 to 1995. This is basically a reboot and was released in 1996. Hence the art style.

So the reboot is called Heisei Harenchi Gakuen covers two male teachers that are hired at an all girls school. They are the ONLY male teachers. As they enter into their respective classrooms, they are assaulted by some of the most urgent girls with the biggest desires to have sex in a class. They have a class schedule that includes Physical Examination and Physical Education.

Let the fucking commence. This was one episode that was 47 minutes long.
