There are certain areas that manga usually stays away from. These include the topics that are more provocative as compared to the regular anime. Anime usually stays away from prostitution and other such topics but Ishuzoku Reviewers is one of the exceptions. This is a manga about the same thing and it getting anime adaptation which is set to air in January 2020.
Ishuzoku Reviewers Manga
Ishuzoku Reviewers, also known as Interspecies Reviewers, Monster Girls, is a Japanese manga about a legal world of prostitution. It is a world with different races e.g. demons, angels, fairies, humans, elves, etc. Ishuzoku Reviewers started as a one-shot in Monthly Dragon Age in 2016.

The story of Ishuzoku Reviewers is pretty simple; it is about two guys, a human and an elf, who get the idea of reviewing different human/monster girl brothels and write reviews/articles about their intimate ‘experiences’ from them. It is a world in which all kinds of different species exist, including humans, demi-humans, angels, demons, elves, and more.
Stank is a human adventurer who frequents the brothels. One day, he bumps into an elf named Eroelf Zell, who is into different kinds of sexual tendencies. Together, they decide to visit the various brothels to review their ‘experiences’. Both decide that they are going to score the service provided by each and every girl they encounter in a cross-review format. So, they set out on a journey looking for new pleasure.

oh wait, there is none... SO maybe it might not get an anime, we will see...
Even though the overall reception of Ishuzoku Reviewers is good, some people were disappointed that the anime/manga is not an H-series. However, sometimes getting some unadulterated fan-service out there is just as important to thoroughly push back against the criticism on male entertainment. The characters overall are quite cute in the manga and a lot of fans of Monster Girls are thrilled to see how they will look in the anime, while other fans are looking forward to seeing their favorite characters e.g. the dragon girl, the octopus girl, etc.
