Audio/Video Quality: Deeper 7: Katsumi was presented in the usual 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Robby D. for Digital Playground. The high end equipment and skilled crew of regulars assisted Robby to make this release another of his more artistic attempts, never going too far in the process as he stuck firmly to his gonzo roots. The lighting was reasonably solid here, as expected given this was Robby's standard type of gonzo, and that meant that the limited amounts of grain and other visual elements used to lend a sense of texture were minimal. The way the scenes were shot and edited was markedly similar in the scenes, though the composition of the angles was changed up a bit depending on the scene in question. The composition of the shots and the editing enhanced the look of the ladies more than a little bit with "Sidney Michaels" credited as editor but it looking very familiar (maybe one of the regulars, even Robby himself, sat in on the editing sessions?). It wasn't the most skillfully cut piece of work from the company but I didn't see anything out of place enough to pinpoint the differences (as Nick or Joey would be able to do were we watching it together). The bitrate for the visuals hovered around the mid 5 Mbps this time with few flaws but not as high in resolution as previous efforts in the series. The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English using a 384 Kbps bitrate; twice that of most porn made these days, with a minimalist leaning that seemed unique in most ways to productions outside of the Jack series, with the vocals always dominating the audio track as I like it. There wasn't much separation between the channels, if any, but the ladies were almost always clearly heard.
Body of Review: Robby D. and Digital Playground have spent the better part of the last few years flirting with increasingly harder sex in their movies, typically positioning the most extreme stuff on his Hand Held Pictures label but not always. One of his showcase series has been the Deeper Series with each one highlighting a single gal to get multiple scenes with her peers upholding the heated dynamics of sex as well in most cases. The latest such release is Deeper 7: Katsumi, where one of the company's latest contract gals (Katsumi) was provided a couple of scenes to strut her hardcore stuff with the rest of the scenes showing a variety of newcomers getting kinky too. The emphasis on anal this time was obvious and I felt that Katsumi was an excellent choice for such treatment, even if I would have liked to see more of her in the scenes. If this sounds good to you, here is a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Katsumi, the hot young Asian gal on the front cover, was up first as she wore a tiny two piece red PVC tape outfit as she moved apples from the dinner table to the bedside table when she dropped one by the feet of Chris Charming. They had a disagreement about ownership that led to him setting the rules of the house, soon nestling between her flawless legs as he ate her out and rubbed the apple on her cookie to make it taste better. While Katsumi juice coated apples would undoubtedly fetch an exceptionally high price on the market, the newly busty gal was more into the pleasure he was giving her, soon trying out his method with some cock. She slowly, playfully even, sucked him off and while he was almost as wide around as her wrist, she got him increasingly harder as she slobbed his knob (jerking him off a little too but mostly going hands-free) as she lay on the bed. The couple then vaginally screwed for a moment but soon found themselves opening her backdoor as she actively impaled herself on that massive wand of his. Cowgirl is one of my favorite positions for such an act as it gives a clear view of what is going on, Katsumi in charge as she stroked her clitoris and pounded herself on the cock. She jerked him off and they went back to anally screwing, the gal never doing a true ATM before he rubbed out a wad of population pudding on her crotch. It was a solid opening scene for the most part and fans might be relived that being a contract gal has yet to weaken her skills.
Scene Two: Maya Gates, a lean brunette in kinky black undies, was up next as she was tied by the hands in the closet. Her partner was Scott Nails and he wore a black ski mask as he tapped her a little with a riding crop, undressing her as he teased the cutie; the music a bit too loud but also punctuating the dynamic of the scene. For his part, Scott ate her out at length, Maya lifting her leg in approval to provide him with a better angle to continue. Her shaven beaver looked tasty and she freed herself (with minimal help from him) to grab for his personal pocket rocket; the telltale bulge exciting her before she unleashed it to suck on. I haven't seen a lot of this gal before but she seemed to be no stranger to a cock in her mouth, aggressively but playfully toying with him orally before they actively screwed. She did a better job on top of his rod but her doggy was pretty sweet too as she looked really appealing with her ass in the air. That the sex moved into an anal porking was a surprise to me for some reason, the gal letting him do most of the work but still trying to add something special to the scene this way. The taste testing was minimal but she took such a large load to her mouth that I hope to see more of her in the future.
Scene Three: Alexis Love, a lean gal with a pretty face, was up next in her street clothing as effeminate Tony De Sergio asked her to strip down to her undies in the living room. He fussed at the exotic hotty for not doing things the way he wanted, the guy reminding me of any number of goofball yuppies I've wanted to smack around over the last twenty years. The action sequences were differentiated from the demand parts by a loud music track and a lot of grain; the effect unusual but not bad except for the slow motion I tend to dislike so much. The scene started off slowly due to the way it was broken up but once she started blowing him; all bets were off as the payoff came to fruition. She seductively slobbed his knob with a girlfriend experience mode rather than trying to drain him dry in minutes, her hand slowly working on the shaft as she did so. Once his cock was thoroughly coated with saliva, she jumped onto it as he spanked her firm ass cheeks, the gal actively partaking of him as deeply as she could go. The two completely lacked any rhythm and the chemistry was minimal but I thought whoever worked on this one in post production made it almost work really well. It ended with a facial for those who care.
Scene Four: Carmel Moore, a curvy British gal with mixed color hair and domestic brunette Audrey Bitoni were up next as they cleaned the living room in their sexy maid outfits near a sleeping Ben English. They fucked with him by tickling him with their feather dusters, the guy waking up to put them in their place by spanking them silly. Audrey's reddened ass cheeks looked good and Carmel tested her for wetness before the gal sat on her face; Ben losing his pants so Audrey would have something to suck on as well. The blowjobs were decent but the way the gals rode his cock was even better, my sole complaint at this point being Audrey's implants looking so poorly done. This was another scene where the rhythm was off but the gals looked like they were trying to outdo one another sexually; Ben reaping the rewards of their contest. The ladies shared his rubbed out load to their faces, kissing as they shared the semen he so willingly provided them. It was pretty good overall but I wished it was longer lasting.
Scene Five: Katsumi, role playing in her undies as though she were a little piggy for Steve Holmes in the bedroom, made grunting noises as required until she was inhaling his dick with her usual flair. Her submissive attitude made him very happy and she seemed fixated on getting his cock even as he wanted to taste her cookie a bit too. She looked kind of tired here but the camera rarely stayed static long enough for me to worry about it as she poured on the charm while deepthroating him. The hand assisted oral led to him taking her from behind in the ass, the gal pushing back to meet his thrusts as she warmed up. The other positions showed her embracing the cock nicely too; a toy and even some choking taking place as he pounded her in the spoon position for variety. She largely finished him off orally with a handjob, a few more pumps of penetrative sex causing his balls to swell and release their payload onto her crotch.
Summary: Deeper 7: Katsumi by director Robby D. for Digital Playground earned a rating of Recommended, much like many of the other Deeper Series releases. I'll be up front and admit that I wanted to see more of the spotlight hotty than was displayed but the quality of her peers was strong enough in most cases to keep me satiated even while maintaining my desire to see her in every scene. The amount of fuck for the buck was not the best given the running time of the movie and the lack of extensive extras but fans of Katsumi should be prepared to pick up a copy when Deeper 7: Katsumi comes out at the end of this month.
