Interspecies Reviewers is a Japanese fantasy sex comedy manga series written by Amahara and illustrated by masha. The series was originally published online through Nico Nico Seiga’s manga website Dragon Dragon Age in 2016. Amahara is best known as the writer behind such manga as Heion Sedai no Idaten-tachi, Teisou Gyakuten Sekai, and 33-sai Dokushin Onna Kishi Taichou—whereas masha has both written and illustrated the comic anthology Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon: Koushiki Anthology. On June 28, 2019, Kadokawa announced that the manga would receive a television anime adaptation produced by Passione. The 12-episode series was directed by Yuki Ogawa and written by Kazuyuki Fudeyasu and premiered on January 11, 2020.

In a world filled with many different humanoid species where prostitution is legal, there exist various brothels for each kind of species run by “succu-girls”, who have succubus blood running through them. As each species has different opinions on how each succu-girl works for them, various brothel visitors have become reviewers, rating their experiences with various succu-girls and posting them in the local tavern. The series largely centers on a human named Stunk, an elf named Zel, and an angel named Crimvael.

The artwork in Interspecies Reviewers is nothing short of impressive, vividly capturing the diverse array of creatures and their distinct characteristics. The character designs are imaginative, highlighting the allure of different species while still retaining an air of levity. Backgrounds are often lush and detailed, particularly when depicting the ornate interiors of the brothels and the vibrant locales they inhabit. The incredibly well-constructed world our characters find themselves a part of is full of intricate designs, crafting a believable, lived-in fantasy world effortlessly maintained through meticulous detail.

Additionally, Interspecies Reviewers‘ comedic timing is undoubtedly its main standout feature. The manga consistently delivers laugh-out-loud moments with its clever wordplay, slapstick humor, and amusing interactions between characters. While it boldly embraces sexual themes and innuendos, it does so with an air of lightheartedness that makes it clear that it’s aiming for entertainment rather than titillation. The camaraderie among the main characters provides heartwarming moments that balance the outrageous humor. However, this doesn’t mean the manga is minus its steamy moments, becoming rather explicit at points—more so than its anime counterpart—which resulted in being denied by certain streaming services for its more adult content and echii scenes.

Furthermore, as the story mostly revolves around the different species of monster girls that offer their services to those willing to pay, the biology of each species of demi-human plays a conscientious role throughout the manga. With each type of girl representing the idea of humanity’s evolution from an animal other than primates, Interspecies Reviewers explores the physical differences between these various classifications of monster girls. The characters discuss and analyze these differences, which can range from appearance to specific biological traits.

Delivering everything it promises, Interspecies Reviewers is a hilariously audacious romp into the realms of light-hearted sex comedy. With its beautifully vibrant world-building, creative character designs, and punctual humour, the manga straddles the line between fantastical fantasy epic and soft-core smut to produce the very best of both. Though the more adult content may not be for more casual readers, those with a taste for it will certainly enjoy what Interspecies Reviewers has to offer.
