3:40 PM: Good afternoon, everyone. Welcome to another showblog!
3:40 PM: Today’s feature is [email protected]’s release of Sekirei.
3:40 PM: From a first look, this is probably a paint-by-numbers fanservice show.
3:40 PM: However, [email protected] recommended it, so I’ll give it a shot. :D
3:40 PM: Before I begin, I’ll just list off the usual basic information.

3:43 PM: Kill count: 3
3:43 PM: “They’re not human D:” Then what are they? T_T Cyborgs?

3:45 PM: Wow. this opening screams 1995.
3:46 PM: Screams RED Company 1995, actually. This is something that’d be at home in Moeyo Ken or Thousand Arms… for better or worse :P
3:46 PM: And the show starts… in 2020 :D Go figure. In 2020, homicidal cyborg ninjas inhabit our world.
3:47 PM: And we’ve got college entrance exam results? Lemme guess… our intrepid, useless male lead didn’t make the cut T_T
3:47 PM: …yep.
3:48 PM: Newscast on TV – apparently, in the future, all CEOs look like pimps.
3:49 PM: Wow, this is cliche.
3:49 PM: “I failed, even though I came to the city to get the big life, I can’t find a girlfriend. D:” lemme guess
3:49 PM: Girl falls in his lap now? :D
3:49 PM: Explosion… and yep :D
3:50 PM: Ass shot count: 1
3:50 PM: Our main character seems surprised… and ninja girl is upset.
3:50 PM: “You caught me, didn’t you? :3” In at least one way.
3:50 PM: Boob squishes: 2
3:51 PM: “Fight with us T_T” FACT: Assassins in the future will be Roppongi rejects
3:51 PM: And now they run… the main character seems less than thrilled.
3:51 PM: Waking up :D
3:51 PM: Boob squish: 3
3:51 PM: He seems shocked.
3:52 PM: Like he never had a girl in his room before… wait a minute..
3:52 PM: Now she’s waking up.
3:52 PM: “Good morning :D” She seems unfazed… and is undressing right in front of a horny 19 year old. #Hurr
3:53 PM: Holy shit… those breasts are bigger than her head! D: It’s like Eiken all over again!
3:53 PM: Main character is nosebleeding, poor girl is clueless
3:53 PM: Main character has a name: Minato.
3:53 PM: “B-b-b-boobs :o”
3:54 PM: Aww… poor girl seems genuinely apologetic.
3:54 PM: And she has a name – Musubi
3:54 PM: Boobsquish – 4
3:54 PM: And she passes out. >___>
3:54 PM: …And eats a lot. She’s like the archetypical female lead in every goddamn harem show ever XD
3:55 PM: Aww D: sad eyes coupled with face fulla McDonald’s
3:55 PM: “All those zips and zaps :o” Very descriptive, Minato… no wonder why you failed out of college T_T
3:55 PM: And she’s a bum – CONVENIENT! :D
3:57 PM: “Let me stay tonight D:” uh.. no brainer? :p
3:57 PM: WTF is an Ashikabi?
3:57 PM: Ohhh… master.. or equivalent.
3:57 PM: And he copped a feel
3:58 PM: Hah :D Minato’s landlord is like Mr. Roper in Japan
3:58 PM: “This apartment is just for singles T____T” what an asshole.
3:58 PM: And she’s finished changing.
3:58 PM: “Was I… lacking modesty?” Yes. >_>
3:58 PM: “I was happy :3” Oh, you.
3:58 PM: Perverted 19 year old is perverted.
3:59 PM: More forced attempts to be cute – “I’m hungry ;.;”
3:59 PM: Bitch can eat o_o
3:59 PM: “Let me cook dinner :D” She can’t cook, I bet
4:00 PM: Off to the bank, Minato goes.
4:00 PM: And those two Roppongi rejects are working? wtf.
4:00 PM: Handing out balloon?
4:01 PM: “You’re yesterday’s S&M Costume ladies ;-;” Perceptive, I see
4:01 PM: Fight is go! And… Musubi’s clothes are blown off. >_>
4:01 PM: Now she looks like a hooker, too D:
4:02 PM: Eyecatch!
4:02 PM: And back to the Roppongi Rejects trying to kill Musubi – Minato jumped in to save the day.
4:02 PM: “If you do anything to her, I’ll D:” die.
4:03 PM: And Musubi’s getting… I dunno. She’s panting and all red o_o
4:03 PM: And off they go again.
4:03 PM: Down the alley they go, and the battle hookers are off on patrol.
4:03 PM: Musubi seems flush… this is turning into bad hentai now D:
4:04 PM: “what should I do? ;-; My body is… getting HOT D:” bad hentai indeed!
4:04 PM: Boobsquish: 5
4:04 PM: And they’re cockblocked by the Roppongi sisters
4:04 PM: Or not. Musubi’s going for some action.
4:05 PM: And she’s glowing, sprouting wings, and moaning orgasmically >_> wtf Japan
4:05 PM: “Would you die, so we feel better? :D” Please do!
4:05 PM: And Musubi’s gonna kick some ass, it seems.
4:05 PM: Yep – ass-whupping is go.
4:06 PM: Fight scenes are filled with seizuriffic flashing lights.
4:06 PM: And the sisters run away. “We lost our jobs ;.;” aw.
4:07 PM: Looks like some ninja guy is their boss… or something
4:07 PM: “What we’re doing is a battle royale staged in this city :D” How expository
4:07 PM: And Musubi’s in normal clothes now, it seems.
4:07 PM: “We are… Sekireis :D” wut
4:08 PM: Poor Minato – his sister’s mocking him about college… and he’s asking HER for her clothes. >_> Creepy
4:08 PM: “You’re completely tainted by urban life :3” That’s one way of putting it XD
4:09 PM: And Musubi’s cooking… pantsless. wat.
4:09 PM: “It feels unreal :D” It’s unreal, alright.
4:09 PM: PIMP CEO >:o
4:09 PM: And he’s mocking Minato through the TV. Poor guy can’t win.
4:10 PM: And he’s talking about the Sekirei Plan… thing.
4:10 PM: Basically, it’s a Fight Club on a huge scale
4:10 PM: Or something
4:10 PM: “This is highly secret :D”
4:10 PM: Of course.
4:11 PM: I like him.
4:11 PM: MBI (the organizers of this Sekirei thing) know where he lives o_o And they have a package :o
4:12 PM: That’s a nice package. :D
4:12 PM: And inside, it’s new battle clothes.
4:12 PM: And she’s undressing in front of him again. >_>
4:12 PM: “I will fight for Minato-san :D” That’s nice
4:12 PM: Mr. Roper’s back! :O
4:12 PM: And he kicked the poor two out. D: Too bad. He could’ve been funny
4:13 PM: Trying to find an apartment sucks in Japan, apparently
4:13 PM: 30 turn-downs. Eesh
4:13 PM: And it’s raining, natch. >_>
4:14 PM: Oh boy… Minato’s angsting and saying he’s not good enough for her.
4:14 PM: That may be true, but still…
4:14 PM: “I like you, Minato-san :D” …That always ends up the answer
4:15 PM: Kiss is go.
4:15 PM: “I can do anything you wish for :D” …kay?
4:15 PM: Bitch be glowin’ now.
4:15 PM: And they’re whisked up in a tornado? wat.
4:16 PM: Pimp CEO narrating the premise now.
4:16 PM: “Now, let’ begin, the new legend… a lovely war Chronicle, a MIRACULOUS LOVE STORY :O” He’s like an adult Taishi :D
4:17 PM: And they end on a really sweet note.
4:18 PM: Verdict: Frankly, I’m torn. On one hand, the plot, the premise, and most of the cast are borderline stupid.
4:18 PM: However, Pimp CEO and the action scenes are both great. So… hm…
