Harem in the Labyrinth of Another World Specials

Harem in the Labyrinth of Another World Specials

Bed Time with Roxanne

Fans of Harem in the Labyrinth of Another World will be happy to know some new content dropped at the end of 2022. That’s right, we got two special episodes. And I’ll just answer the big question upfront, yes, it’s hentai.

In my review of the main series, I probably said something like, “It would be better if it was a hentai.” Well, it’s possible that I didn’t because somehow I actually enjoyed the other parts of the series, too. But, if you thought the series would be better if it cut out everything but the sex scenes, these specials are for you.

Each episode is only 4 minutes long, which I’m sure is long enough for anyone reading this. And the first episode is all about spending some quality time in bed with Roxanne. We get to see Roxanne learn to be honest about her desires.

Alright, so I said these specials were hentai. But, that’s not entirely true. Unlike in hentai, you’re not going to see anything below the waist here. These episodes are pretty similar to the uncensored sex scenes in the main series. However, they do focus on Roxanne’s chest a lot more.

It was hard to get screenshots to use in this review that didn’t expose Roxanne’s chest. Sure, there was a lot of that in the main series, as well. But, it felt like these specials somehow focused on her body even more. And, there’s some other explicit stuff, like when Michio shows off his fingers.

If you know, you know.

Still, this first special episode was what you’d expect from Isekai Meikyuu de Harem wo. It’s Michio and Roxanne doing what they do with their free time outside of the labyrinth. I don’t know how you could expect anything else.

Bath Time with Roxanne

The second special episode is the one I think is better. In this episode, Roxanne and Michio take a bath together. That’s something we saw multiple times in the main series. But, I’m not going to complain about more of this kind of content.

This episode is also split into two halves. In the first half of the episode, Michio “washes” Roxanne. And in the second half of the episode, Roxanne “washes” Michio. That might not sound like much of a difference. But, it does keep the episode from getting stale by being a bit more dynamic.

Something I thought was funny in this episode was the focus on soap. I remember in the main series it was a big deal when Michio “invented” soap. But, they treat soap like a precious resource in this episode. And it’s funny to think of people actually making these comments “in the moment.”

So, what do I mean when I say there was a focus on soap? Well, in the middle of being washed by Michio, Roxanne stops the action to say that some soap fell off her and into the tub. I guess that was important information she needed to relay to Michio.

And even after they’re done washing each other, the soap talk doesn’t stop. Forget all the activities they just engaged in. Based on how they talk about soap, that’s what makes bath time enjoyable. I really need to get my hands on whatever soap they’re using.

But, there’s something that not even Michio’s magic soap can fix. These two special episodes were all about Roxanne. I know she’s the main girl of the series and most of the main anime had her as the only girl. But, where are the rest of the girls?

Needed More Sherry, Miria, Vesta, and Rutina

I like Roxanne. She’s a good main girl. But, that doesn’t mean all I want to see is Roxanne. There are four other girls in Harem in the Labyrinth of Another World. And yet, none of them appeared in these special episodes.

They say variety is the spice of life. So, why not mix things up and not focus solely on Roxanne? What I would have rather seen is an episode dedicated to each of the main girls. The episodes are only 4 minutes long, so why not have five of them?

Now, I have to admit that variety isn’t the only reason I wanted to see the other girls in these specials. It’s also because Roxanne doesn’t have my ideal body type. I mean, she’s better than Vesta. But, I was really hoping to see some Sherry, Miria, and Rutina content.

And, there’s one more reason. As I mentioned, Roxanne was the only girl in the majority of the main series. Sherry only showed up at the end. And the other three girls were only in the final few minutes of the last episode. That’s the biggest reason why I wanted to see them in the specials.

I’m not really expecting there to be a second season of Harem in the Labyrinth of Another World. The way the first season ended felt like an advertisement for the light novels. It was like, “Look at all these other girls you’re missing out on.”

So, the specials could have been another way to give those girls screen time. I would even have accepted if the second episode was split between the other four girls. At least they’d each get a minute of extra screen time.

Conclusion

As with the main series, I gave the Harem in the Labyrinth of Another World Specials a 7/10. That’s also higher than the average rating of the specials on MyAnimeList. And, coincidentally, the specials have the same average rating as the main series, 6.57/10.
