In the tradition of summers past, the Fanservice Fairy has sprinkled her naughty, magical dust all over the goddamn summer shows again, making panties and cleavage blossom everywhere!

AHOY MATEY!

Seriously, leg fanservice? That’s… uhm… totally wrong. But lemme stare for a couple minutes to make sure. Oh, and more… after… jump…

(Note: the Koihime Musou post is incoming but will have to wait for tomorrow night. Because tonight is…)
... Among other things.

Among other things.

O, woe is me! How shall I ever survive in the barren wastelands that is the fall anime season without Sekirei‘s plump and nutritious, uhm, morsels to sustain me from now on?

Somehow, I think I’ll manage.

Think I’ll start off by ranting and raving about Code Geass for the umpteenth week in a row? Ha! Let’s shake things up a bit!

Woopsie!

Bonus points if you can identify the anime without glancing at the tags. Clicky clicky for more.

Sekirei (episode 10)

Seo is pimp.

A pimp is Seo.

As if I’m going to miss another episode after last week.

I was indeed expecting another nipple cavalcade but apparently Sekirei is going to play the tease card. Which is fine by me because, for once in its lifetime, I actually felt the plot shrugging awake and stumbling along, thanks to Seo who spends over half the episode explaining every detail of Sekrei‘s world for our benefit.

The Cliff’s Notes:

  • The capital is separated in four sectors each ruled by a Big Boss. The Big Boss of the North sector is the landlady. Hard to believe, I know… Until you see her spank Tsukiumi.
  • Speaking of everyone’s favorite Water Girl: in the world of Sekirei, no one is truly defeated until they are naked as the day they were born. I bet the high school chess club matches must be really intense.
  • Why is Sekirei so terrified of resorting to action and fighting? The fight scenes ain’t amazing but they’re still a hundred times better at adrenaline-pumping than the remaining 95% content the show regurgitates every week. Hell, Musubi has a cool ground punch near the end that almost made me mutter “fuck yeah”. Almost.

Code Geass (episode 21)

YES YOUR FRUITY MAJESTY!

YES YOUR FRUITY MAJESTY!

Incoming wall o’ text. You’ve been warned.

Whenever a show tackles the issue of collective consciousness and a pan-human melding thereof, the comparisons to Neon Genesis Evangelion and its controversial ending arise, with most commentators failing to address the questions that matter the most.

The Emperor’s all-encompassing plan was to use the Sword of Akarakaksha to initiate the Ragnarok Junction, thereby affecting the collective consciousness and forcing it — through the use of two immortal Codes — to revert to a primal, individual-less entity. Individuals are nothing but masks of that collective unconsciousness, C.C. claims, windows into the larger hive mind’s heart and soul, if you will.

In Code Geass it is Lelouch who rises up to reject that decision, and thank God it didn’t take him two drawn-out, poorly-animated black and white introspective episodes to get there, if you know what I mean. And you have to love that Lelouch doesn’t just yell “GARRR!” and punches Daddy’s lights out: no, he argues against his parents’s intellectual position. He believes that the lies and the deception that they disdain so much are tools with no intrinsic moral value whatsoever. You can cheat on your wife and lie, but you can also buy her a sweet gift for her birthday and hide it from her while waiting for the perfect moment to present itself. Removing individuality would remove not just conflicts but all possibility of healthy, caring interactions.

Hokay, enough Heideggering around. This is the kind of episode that makes or breaks a show if it airs too early; in Code Geass‘s case, I doubt many viewers will be put off by the preposterous turn into metaphysics the show took for the week, although it was still a massive disappointment to me. All that build-up over two seasons over the Emperor and his secretive plan? Bam, gone. The Emperor? Gone. Lady Marianne? Gone after a mere two episodes. V.V.? The lil’ bastard is loooong gone. And what in blazes can Schneizel pull out of his ass that’s going to top the Emperor’s plan of forcing the entire species onto a higher plane of consciousness by erasing individuality? Much like a twelve-year-old boy who’s stumbled on his older brother’s Playboy stash, I wonder if Code Geass hasn’t fallen prey to premature climaxing.

And that’s… pretty much it

Uhm, damn. Less overtime, more anime watching. I am hopelessly behind in watching all my favorite series except for those above and Macross Frontier and Koihime Musou. Not only that, but I’m cooking up a “shows I wanna watch” post too, which does not bode well considering my lack of spare of time. Ah, what I wouldn’t give for a Geass that let me forsake sleep entirely…

I skipped watching Sekirei last week and didn’t think twice about it. Earth-shattering developments? In Sekirei? Come on! I might as well expect Musubi to start debating the nuances of the ontological argument or Misato’s nose to stop bleeding every other scene.

And yet I was wrong. Dead wrong. The most shocking turn of events of the entire summer anime season took place during that one episode of Sekirei that I missed! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you…

Nipples.

(They’re nipples. I hope the NSFW warning goes without saying. Said warning includes everything after the break too. What, I’m gonna hold back and not post screenies? Like hell I won’t!)

Whew! I’m feeling a lot better today. Well enough, as a matter of fact, to make up for yesterday and spend some time discussing this week’s happenings, the blistering heat be damned. I’m also cooking up a preview post for the fall season, which is only a couple of weeks away. It’s a great time to be alive and a lover of huge animated tits.

Wait, what the fuck?

Let's play a game of "Spot The Anatomical Inaccuracy".

Let's play a game of "Spot The Anatomical Inaccuracies". I'm up to nineteen.

I, uh… Woooow. I’m torn between primordial terror and unwilling arousal. Thanks a lot, Sekirei. More below.

Tonight's MC: Kyouka on catnip!

Welcome, dear readers, to the first edition of the Midseason Awards, wherein I shall take a look at the best, worst, and most average shows of the season! If you’ve been following my writing since the start few of the discussions below will surprise you, but hey, we should all step back from time to time lest we miss the forest for the trees. If you’re new around here then I hope this post will serve as a window into my anime watching habits and as a summary of the summer’s TV series thus far.

Put on your fanciest tuxedo, slap on a pair of catgirl ears, and let the ceremonies begin!
