Irotenya's works seem to feature darker themes such as violation and coercion, this work included (though some of the artists' other works are also bittersweet- but this one is not one of them). Despite the very warm and cute art style (which in itself is worth the purchase), the story is based on a desert city that has free accommodations for women, on the condition they surrender themselves to the town's men at any time. Despite this (or due to it, its completely subjective) the work retains its erotic value.

As for the depiction of the featured characters, the artist does well in giving them sexually appealing features, though they retain a somewhat realistic proportions. In addition, I think the art style complements the characters wonderfully, adding to their cuteness and the general erotic feel that accompanies hentai works that cover darker things, like in this case, coercion. However, it never gets too dark as to remove the erotic enjoyment of the work, so if this was a point of contention someone who was curious, it's still worth a look. It doesn't get too heavy with it.

The work is great, especially considering the price point. The work comes with both a version featuring Japanese dialogue, and a version with simply the artwork. Interestingly enough, one can follow the story without the need of translation. The inclusion of these two versions is a very welcome feature that allows the reader to enjoy the artwork on its own. If the artwork appeals to you at all, the work will certainly be worth a purchase.

This is another great entry to Deep Rising's repertoire of work, especially if you like the approach towards the particular featured series. Style-wise, the attention to facial expression details as well as the effort to make the variations worthwhile contributes to the overall quality of the work.

Once again the subject matter revolves around the female characters from the series being ravished and violated by several monsters, but also includes scenes with tentacles, along with a few with other humans. While there are a base number of 17 pictures (along with a few more at this time of writing), the artist's approach to variations include (and vary from picture to picture) a progression of ahegao, bukkake, and cum inflation (which also will satisfy those with a preference for impregnation variations) which adds a lot to the value of the work.

A few things that appealed to me personally is that I particularly appreciate how this artist does the heroines' buttocks, and many pictures prominently feature that aspect of the characters. Also, I'm a fan of the series the characters are based on and the artist's style really lends itself to eroticize the characters while simultaneously incorporating their designs well into the work.

Overall, if the artstyle or subject matter appeals to you, I wholly recommend the work- especially if you are a fan of the series featured.

Deep Rising's Outbreak Incident revolves around the arousing depiction of the lavish (and familiar to some) heroine featured on the cover. Gratifying angles display the heroine's sexual features and expressive countenance as she is ravaged, impregnated, and covered in gratuitous amounts of fluids by all manners of monsters.

Included in the work are variations of the CG's main progression. For example, alternate costumes that will be familiar to those fans of the game series, in addition to variations depicting pregnancy. Another point worth mentioning is that while the CG does depict violation, it does not pass into brutal territory (i.e, guro) and remains (relative to the Hentai genre) tasteful throughout.

One downside to this work is that the narration included cannot be translated from Japanese via web browser. That being said, the story is not crucial to appreciating the work by any means.

One other point of interest is the artists' attention to detail regarding faces. From anxious to ahegao, each expression is amazingly done and are extremely arousing on their own merit. In addition, impregnation is a generously featured and wonderfully done in this work. If you are a fan of this artist's approach to ravaged pregnant heroines, or have a preference for impregnation themes in Hentai, this CG will absolutely satisfy you.

Considering the quality of the work and its varied and well constructed content, this CG collection offers a great experience that easily exceeds its accessible pricing. I'd strongly recommend the purchase as it is certain to appease any fan of the game series or any connoisseur of well-made Hentai works.

Deep Rising's works seem to demonstrate a constant improvement and as a longtime fan, I'm happy to say their latest work is one of their best.

First, the artist' style stands out among typical hentai work. It is part anime inspired, mixed with a hint of realism, yet it does not appear uncanny or off-putting. Curves are accentuated by the creation of depth using subtle shading that draws out the sexuality of the characters. The details of characters' eyes also serve to enhance the depictions of their emotion and sexual experiences.

As for the content, the work revolves around the protagonist being violated by creatures as she finds her way through a monster-laden mansion. The scenes feature many sexual positions in which the characters are ravished by different monstrosities (which aren't so ugly as to detract from the content), and generously feature the sexual qualities of the characters’ figures.

That being said, the work is violation-focused (not a personal complaint, but could be for some). However, (I’d like to buffer the following statement with asserting that this work is one of fiction and I absolutely do not condone real life acts), it is done in a sufficiently tasteful manner as one can achieve in an erotic work.

One flaw is due to the verification software, one can no longer translate the story from Japanese to English with software. While story is nice, if one is familiar with violation/tentacle themes, you won't miss much. The pictures themselves provide enough context to gauge what is going on.

Finally, the artists’ depiction of pregnancy (inflation given the context of the pictures) is a relatively new addition to his works. It's extremely well done- I’m looking forward to artist's can provide in this particular theme.

If you are at all interested in this particular work or drawn to the unique art style, I absolutely recommend it. For the affordable price, you get a varied, well drawn CG that stands well above the value that it is sold at.
