I’ve learned over the years that whenever the following question is posed—”Hey, is that a fetish?”—the answer is always “yes.” In this case, the “heroine eaten by giant snake” fetish is brought to life with Yui Aikawa as the lovely victim, who fights valiantly to avoid becoming snake food.
Right off the bat, we’re launched into a pretty epic costume transformation sequence. Yui Aikawa uses a magical phrase and makes a magical gesture with her hands, and suddenly everything magically turns pink and there are magical cartoon hearts everywhere and slowly, her clothes disappear and her costume materializes on her magical body. This sequence takes a while, allowing us to gaze at the lovely Aikawa at various points during her costume transition. For costume transformation fans, this should do the trick. (Snake-eating-heroine fans will have to wait a few more minutes.)
After an opening credits sequence which involves Aikawa dancing sexily for the camera (for no reason), the story resumes, with Aikawa’s superheroine friend (Iori Tsukimoto) having a really hard time with a group of evil thugs who are beating the hell out of her with punches, kicks, choke holds, and the like. Aikawa runs really, really far and finally catches up to them in time to kick all the bad guys’ asses.
Everything seems to be going pretty well for our heroines until the villains utilize a two-pronged heroine-defeat strategy: the main villain extends a tentacle and wraps it around Aikawa’s neck while a giant, slimy snake-worm slowly, slowly eats Tsukimoto. Seriously, it takes forever, but hey, for fans of this fetish, I’ll bet this is one of the greatest moments in the history of motion pictures. Once the snake has eaten Tsukimoto and the bad guys have escaped, Aikawa has a tearful moment at the side of a lake where she talks to Tsukimoto’s ghost and (I’m guessing) vows revenge against the bad guys and their uncouth worm-snake.
Aikawa enters the bad guys’ evil lair and encounters a group of thugs. She defeats them easily due to her magical fighting abilities. Come to think of it, I have no idea what her powers actually are in this movie, other than just looking amazingly hot. I guess she can just fight really well and maybe dazzle the bad guys with her wonderfully tailored, shiny costume. In any event, she encounters the main, tentacle-equipped bad guy and has a little chat with him just before the two characters start fighting. It’s not a bad fight scene but certainly not Giga’s best. Anyway, this is all just the prelude to the real fetish content of the video.
Before the “main course,” as it were, the video exhibits another fetish concept I’ve seen in a few other videos. It’s the “heroine in the process of transforming into another costume (or just activating her latent powers) but interrupted in the process and unable to complete the transformation” fetish. This happens a couple of times during this fight sequence. Most of the time, Aikawa has a tentacle wrapped around her arm and another around her neck, and the bad guy beats her up with lots of stomach punches, choking, electric shocks, and other forms of torment.
Eventually, after a couple of successful attempts to fight the bad guys, Aikawa meets the dreaded worm-snake again, and the rest of the video involves her being eaten, trying not to be eaten, being slowly pulled into the snake’s mouth, trying to fight her way out, being eaten some more, and so forth. I won’t spoil the ending, but I don’t see a producer as successful as Giga frustrating its intended audience by allowing the heroine to escape uneaten.
Even though I don’t really know anything about this particular fetish, I really enjoyed this video. Yui Aikawa is probably my favorite Zen/Giga actress at the moment. She’s sizzling-hot and can act extremely well. Aside from the heroine consumption content that comprises much of the video’s running time, there are still some entertaining fight sequences and a lot of peril (punches, electric shocks, etc.) that all decent people can enjoy. I recommend it, especially for fans of Yui Aikawa.
