So yeah… um… I’m still kind of left speechless after watching the first episode.
Well, you gotta know, I went into watching this show pretty much knowing nothing. I had only watched the PV and hyped myself by expecting a whole lot of yuri. I didn’t know much about the game, the premise and, well, anything else. All I knew from the very beginning was that this show was going to be super ecchi.
I don’t know about you, but even the term “super ecchi” has its boundaries. Shows like this are supposed to contain girls with large boobs, skimpy clothing, and great (unproportional) bodies. There are meant to be jiggly boobs, ass and panty shots, and some pervy actions. But I always thought that there would be a definite line between ecchi and hentai. This anime however made me question my own understanding of these two genres. No matter how similar, there are some things that I simply don’t expect to see in ecchi shows.
Like nipples or actual sex scenes, and lastly, such a lengthy display of the two things I just listed. Well, well, this show sure surprised me and made me double check whether I actually locked the door to my room.
But oh well, enough about this already. I haven’t even talked about the plot yet, which is probably due to some “other things” that almost made me forget about it. Maybe that’s a good thing though, since the plot so far leaves no impression at all. We get some random girls that magically meet on a random island and they start fighting.
The most prominent aspect seems to be how they fight using each other as weapons Soul Eater-style. However, the whole transformation process they have to go through before actually transforming into a weapon is… questionable, but probably a pretty good idea for a game directed at an adult audience.
Oh well, there was at least one scene that actually made me go “Awwwww”; it was almost adorable how little Miss
Virgin Innocent was being kissed in order to transform into her weapon form. If I got it correctly, they have to arouse the person in order to get her to transform, so to actually “only” see them kiss made the whole thing seem quite adorable and endearing, at least in comparison to the rest of the episode. However, this short scene only lasted what seemed to be an instant, since Nameless Protagonist B quickly ruined the scene by stripping Miss Innocent and more or less raping her (willing?) victim.
Yup, that sums it up really well.
I’m having mixed feelings. For one, it was entertaining, and there is a lot of yuri going on. But then again, I really can’t stand the level of ecchiness in this show, and I’m quite sure that they’re not going to tone it down.
