Here will be the dedicated Sekirei thread.

Some months ago, I was able to convert some of you guys into Sekirei fans, and I plan to do that to more. For those that don't know, its the story of a guy named Minato Sahashi who is a 19 year old College Ronin, basically someone who's failed to get into college. From the first encounter to meeting the Sekirei named Musubi, Minato joins the game known as the Sekirei Plan, which is a battle royal of sorts that pits Sekirei and their Ashikabi (Sekirei's "Master) against each other to advance to the next round. Out of 108 sekirei, Minato will meet a good number of them, and even become the Ashikabi of certain sekirei causing Harem Hijinks and good comedy as well as some ecchi for you ecchi fans.

As far as Harems go, this is without a doubt my favorite anime series that has nothing to do with Tenchi franchise. For one, it actually gives a legit reason for the harem to exist, which many harem shows nowadays don't do. As being an Ashikabi to these sekirei, they actually HAVE to be connected to him, and learn to get along instead of fighting over Minato. While close relationships between a Sekirei and their Ashikabi isn't necessarily required, its pretty common and can range from a brotherly-sisterly bond to a romantic bond. An ashikabi is pretty much free to treat his sekirei as he see fit, ranging from his/her wife/husband, to a slave who is beneath him. One of the main reasons Minato has his sekirei wanting to jump his penis is cause of this fact, and he treats them as equals instead of some pet or slave like other ashikabi in this series do.

The series was already pretty popular in japan, so Funimation saw it fit to license the series here overseas, and it sold like hot pancakes. I'm pretty sure even Funimation didn't expect sekirei to be THIS popular (Neither did I honestly) and is now one of their premium series.

So now since the first two seasons are out, fans are now waiting/feigning for the 3rd season which we were promised at the ending credits of season 2

So now, time for my complaints. And for the most part, this has ENTIRELY to do with Funmation. One of the reasons why I absolutely hate that Funimation has licensed this is cause they are selling it for the WRONG reasons. As Jibs can testify, Sekirei has a good plot, nice character development, and is more than just about the ass and titties. But with Funimation's marketing, you'd think this was a damn porno.  >:( >:( Let me show you examples of what I mean.

Boobies for the win still pisses me off...but, its still a very good series regardless.




So if you are a fan of Tenchi Muyo, and SPECIFICALLY a fan of how Harem can incorporate values of family between the Harem, I highly suggest this series to you.

-Tenchi Ryu's stamp of Approval.

This anime is the rightful successor to Tenchi Muyo imo, in spirit at least.  While I will never get attached to it as TM!, I can easily see younger people who will just like I did with TM!.

I like this series and I like the fact it will without a doubt finish in a harem and how the girls lives as a family. That just too bad the guy doesn't interest me that much unlike others guys I like but don't a harem. I guess I am never happy. ;D

A thing only bug me: WHY THE FUCK THE BOOBS ARE TOO BIG ?!? Seriously, that ugly to watch ! Even worst, I saw artwork from the manga and the girls are not that big !

They can get pretty big in the Manga as well....




Just a personal preference. Some like em big, some don't. But the japanese companies know, big tits sell. Always was that way, and always will be. Even Kajishima made Ryoko and Ayeka boobs bigger.

As far as characters, I like Minato, but I also love Seo as well. Such a cool guy, and has the hot twins who has has sex with every night.

Today I watched the special who seems took place between the two seasons. That good but that would be better if I had watch it before season 2 since they talk about thing I know how it will end,

BTW, someone know if it will have a season 3 ?

As I reported in the other thread, Samurai girls just got green lit for season 2. This could be a good sign for sekirei since Samurai girls aired at the SAME time as Sekirei season 2. So maybe, just maybe a season 3 isn't to far now.

Bright light censoring kills anime.

The Blu Ray took care of that.....

Not a cloud, light, black spot, suspiciously placed lamp in sight.
