Keijo, otherwise known as Hip Whip Girl, is about a gambling sport which hit Japan over the 21st Century. The Keijo sport involves a group of women, fighting to knock each other off the floating platforms on a pool, otherwise known as land. The only catch, is that they can only use their breasts and bums.
The anime revolves around Nozomi, a starry eyed gymnast, who graduates school and aims to become the richest Keijo player in Japan. She comes across a former judo champion in a Keijo arena, Sayaka, and soon they become friends and rivals. They attend the Western Keijo School and work together to become the best.
This anime focuses on character development as well as fan service. There is a girl called non, who has a soft butt, so she has the ability to knock people off with their own impact, otherwise known as counter. She starts off as afraid of the other players, but soon gains confidence and moves to the top ranks with the other girls in her dorm. Sayaka compensates for her small breasts and works towards becoming the fastest Outfighter in Japan, using her speed and her butt. Kazane starts out soft spoken and unsure of herself, by the end of the season she becomes a strong player with her scanning hand, the ability to copy anyones’s once she places her hands on their butt.
The whole idea of Keijo seems to be very sexist with a main male crowd. In the manga, the professional races start with parading the butts so that the gamblers know who to put their money on. Yet the anime makes up for that misgiving when you see the abilities the girls have. They are so silly yet incredibly entertaining, it is like they have super powers. I wont give the entertainment away to my readers, but it is something to be thoroughly enjoyed.
Overall, this anime is right up my perverted ally. It has the right amount of character development and boobage, with some typical yet amazing anime fight scenes. I can’t wait for season 2 to get here!
