Cream Lemon (くりいむレモン or くりぃむレモン Kurīmu Remon) is an early hentai series. The first Cream Lemon OVA was released in August 1984, though Cream Lemon was not the first hentai OVA. The first was Lolita Anime, released earlier in February 1984.

Cream Lemon is a collection of somewhat surreal stories having different settings and situations at different points in time, with genres including fantasy, comedy, suspense, sci-fi, action, drama and mystery. The overriding theme of the series is sex of almost any kind imaginable. Most chapters stand alone as separate titles, having no relation to any other stories within the Cream Lemon series. The main recurring characters are a brother, Hiroshi, and sister, Ami, who are edging ever closer to an incestuous relationship.

Cream Lemon often focuses on unrealistic and exaggerated themes that could never happen. One such example is of the story of a girl who does not like sex because of a series of rapes in her family. To cure this, the school counseler orders her to strip off in front of the art class and masturbate herself to the point of orgasm. She then has public sex with a boy and likes it, causing the whole class to start having sex. Others are equally surreal.

Related to the Cream Lemon series is the Project A-ko series, which was originally to be the third installment of Cream Lemon but changed while in production to be a mainstream title. The only remaining indication is the bath scene with B-ko.

New-century Cream Lemon

After an absence of just under ten years, the first in a brief new age of Cream Lemon OVAs made its appearance, with another following the year after. Both episodes are connected with the two most popular Cream Lemon stories: the "Escalation" and "Ami" series.

  1. "Escalation: Die Liebe" (July 27, 2001)
  2. "Ami Recontrer" (August 23, 2002)

Cream Lemon New Generation and Cream Lemon Live Action

Due to the crossover appeal of the Cream Lemon videos and their unusually complex plots and popularity, Fairy Dust decided to release a new non-pornographic OVA series called Cream Lemon New Generation. They also commissioned a romantic live action movie loosely based on the Ami series.

These proved to be very popular with a new generation of fans who were unaware that Cream Lemon had its roots in hentai. A live action video series or V-Cinema series followed, keeping the surreal and bizarre storylines with an adult edge but refraining from showing any explicit sex scenes.
