  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Go, Go Second Time Virgin is a shocking, and intense drama of two teenagers (Kozakura and Akiyama) whose strange relationship is formed after the girl is repeatedly raped on a Tokyo rooftop by a gang of boys. One of the boys is more of an outcast who befriends the girl after the attack. They stay upon the rooftop and contemplate life, death and violation. He later confesses that he, too, has been a victim of molestation, but by four adult neighbors whom he had murdered earlier in the day. Not for the faint-hearted. (Laurie Sevano)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a black-and-white picture that is generally soft and wanting in definition. One scene is rendered in monochromatic blues. The gray scale is often highly contrasted, though some scenes exhibit a good gradation between the deepest blacks and brightest whites. Whites are often hazy, and blacks are sometimes only a deep gray. Source element artifacts and scratches are apparent throughout. Details occasionally shimmer. Overall, the picture is unimpressive.
