Keijo

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!

Momokuri

Stalking and kleptomania has never been something that I have considered in itself cute. I have always considered it a creepy and disturbing hobby, yet, Momokuri has turned this disturbing act into something completely different. They have made it as cute as a couple of fluffy bunny ears.

The anime is about a girl called Kurihara Yuki. She is stalking a short boy called Momotsuki Shinya, nicknamed ‘Momo-kun’. She takes photos of his expressions and collects items he has touched. She decides to tell Momo how she feels when she hits two hundred pictures. Momo accepts her feelings and the anime is about them progressing their relationship.

The one positive thing that kept me watching this anime was its innocence. They don’t kiss, he only walks her to the bus stop and they do wholesome activities like a BBQ and studying. The clothing that they wear are even more adorable. Momo and his friends wear corduroys and cardigans, whereas the girls also wear cardigans and dresses.

This is where the negatives come in. As adorable and charming it might be, it lacks any reality. The ability to relate to any of the characters are lost the moment the episode starts. Furthermore, the colours are pastel and bright, the art is simple and the voices are incredibly high pitched. One of the factors I take into account when watching anime is the art. Making this rainbow anime unforgivable. You can watch an anime which is simple, yet this was too simple.

Toradora!

This week I watched Toradora!. This is a light novel turned anime series, which was released in 2008. The story is about a second year high school student named Ryuji Takasu, who looks like a thug, but actually has a gentle personality. He meets a small hot headed girl named Taiga Aisaka and, through a series of events, they end up working together, to get closer to the people they are in love with. Ryuji is in love with Taigas best friend Minori Kushieda and, Taiga is in love with Ryujis only friend Yusaku Kitamura. Minori is an extreme and energetic personality, who works hard at school and holds lots of part time jobs. Yusaku is the vice president of the student council and, a member of the soft ball team, along with Minori.

The beginning of the anime is pretty good. It follows Ryuji and Taiga in their daily lives, tormenting one another and developing a friendship. Having found out that she lives next door, Ryuji cooks for her and makes her lunches everyday. She eventually becomes one of the family and, is loved by Ryujis’ unconventional mother Yasuko.

The anime takes an unpleasant turn as the series goes on. A new character is introduced, Ami Kawashima. Everyone thinks she is a cute air head model, but really she is a spoilt princess, who puts on a persona. She is childhood friends with Yusaku. She begins to see that Taiga and Ryuji are in love with each other and, she develops feelings for Ryuji herself. She becomes mean to all of them, making snide comments, because she can’t stand how stupid they are being, in not confessing to each other.  I found this very annoying and, it overshadowed what could of been some really good scenes.

Another unpleasant turn the anime takes, is its knack for the over dramatic. The characters yell at each other, cry and fight each other, when all they had to do was say how they felt. You end of turning the volume down on the TV, because their voices hurt your eardrums.

This anime had the potential to be very good, but the moment Ami came in and, the moment they started yelling at each other, they completely lost me.

 

Watamote

Watamote is an anime I found on my Facebook news feed. It is about a high school first year called Tomoko, who has no friends and unrealistic expectations of popularity. The anime is about her school life and her trying to become popular and noticed in class.

As an anime, It is hard to watch. The plot sucks beyond repair, the episodes are boring and you want to slap the character in the face hard…really hard. I wouldn’t suggest this anime to my worst enemy. Each episode is a silly mission to become popular, which I am sure is supposed to be funny but isn’t. You feel sorry for her, but really it is brought on herself. As you can tell, I have hate for this anime.
