First off, let me say that if you're the sort who buys ero-games mainly for the story, this work is not for you. There's not very much story to be had here.

That being said, the CGs are so good that it's really almost a must-buy.

What you get boils down to:

- 16 CG illustrations without story, each featuring one girl
- 20 CG illustrations with dialogue, making up 5 mini-stories. The content of the stories is mostly irrelevant, really. One of these is a prequel to the animation clip.
- One 4-minute animation clip featuring a futanari (dickgirl) sex scene. This, and the prequel story, are the only futanari/yuri material in the package.

The animation clip is fairly straightforward, and doesn't have voices - only subtitles. It's more of a nice little extra than a major part of the package.

As for the CGs, they're fantastic. The only criticism I could offer is that PROPER seems to use the same few female models in different outfits, with very slight modifications to the facial and body features. Their approach to CG, as far as I can see, looks like they use a 3D-rendered model and then paint over it in Photoshop. It combines the best of 2D and 3D art, and looks great. The scenes depicted are almost exclusively hardcore straight sex, with about an even split between consensual and non-consensual sex. There are a few gangbang scenes, and in general a lot of fluid is involved - sometimes water, very occasionally a golden shower, but mostly cum, which is very well-illustrated.

In conclusion, if you have an appreciation for well-drawn hardcore CGs, and especially if you like your CG girls drenched in cum, this is very much worth it.

Let me first say up front that I like shrine maidens and tentacles, so my review of this title might be a little biased. For anyone who likes those things, you can't afford to miss this one. If you don't... well, you might still enjoy it. Read on.

Story: The protagonist is Masato Mishiba, an ordinary high-school student who becomes possessed by a demon. By a rather convenient coincidence, the miko of the Kusakabe family have been pursuing the demon for quite a long time, and one of them happens to be his childhood friend Hiyori. Will Masato accept Hiyori's love, or will the demon inside lead him to increasing levels of depravity?

Format: "Mahara Miko" is a standard branching adventure game with multiple endings. As with some of Parthenon's other works, most of the sexual encounters in the game come in 3 versions. Unlike other Parthenon games, it's pretty easy to get all 3 versions of each encounter, so completing the CG file isn't too hard. The multiple endings are fairly straightforward too.

Characters and Art: The art is usually excellent, although the characters are sometimes a tiny bit off-model (but never ugly). The sample CGs represent the content quite well. Hiyori's design is pretty cute, and unexpectedly well-stacked; she carries off the "bouncy schoolgirl/miko" look well, while her older sister Saori is equally hot. Voice acting is excellent.

Ecchi Content: The game is about evenly split between straight sex and tentacle sex, the latter usually accompanied by copious and well-drawn money shots. Every scene has multiple versions, making for great variety. Most of the encounters are with Hiyori, but Saori features in several scenes, including a number of threesomes. There's not a lot of pregnancy content, despite the title, which might make it more palatable for some.

Final Grade: A. This is the best tentacle/miko game I've played. Highly recommended and well worth the slightly high price.
