I remember a long time ago, I heard in one of the episodes of Otaku Generation a review of a documentary. It was until now that I remembered the title of the film, The Great Happiness Space: Tale of an Osaka Love Thief. This documentary shows what really happens in Host clubs. Come on in to see the truth.
During the whole documentary, I did not like Issei because he is exploiting these women. However, as the film went on, I started to noticed that these men are also suffering. These hosts are psychologically dead inside. They forget who they really are and they do not feel real human emotions. For a man like Issei who has been a host for 4 years(at the time the movie was filmed) straight, that kind of lifestyle takes a big toll on the mind and body. To be honest, I don't see him making it to the age of 40.
I was going to give this film a rating, but it's difficult due to the raw reality it has. So, what are your opinions on this documentary?
