First Impressions – Keijo!!!!!!!! ~ Ep 1 NSFW

by

This review, and show, is Not Safe For Work by any means.

Ass. ‘N Titties. Ass, Ass, ‘N Titties~

How else can I begin reviewing a show like this. I believe this is a series that many otaku and anime enthusiasts alike have been looking forward to since it’s initial mentioning. With absolute certainty, this falls under the ecchi category. Now, this is a genre I’m familiar with, but it’s not exactly my favorite. That being said, however, I’ll still be reviewing it objectively, as I believe this could be one of the “bigger” hits this season to pay attention to.

And now, onto the actual review- As many probably know already, Keijo!!!!!!!! is a fictional competition that can only be played by female competitors. The game starts by taking place on a flotation base, known as a land, and the aim is to knock off the competition using a female’s most notable assets- (you guessed it) ass and titties~

The victors receive cash prizes as well as the opportunity to be ogled by thirsty men and women alike. (We’re making some real great strides towards gender equality, folks!) Now, while the series isn’t based on any legitimate sport (sorry to burst that bubble, everyone), it’s originating studio claims that Keijo!!!!!!!! is more than simply an erotical display of femininity, but really a show that focuses on the “passionate pursuit of sports.” From my own perspective, it could also be satirical, when compared to other sports shows, much like the volleyball inspired hit, Haikyu!!, or the ever popular swimming anime, Free.

We’re immediately introduced to our main protagonist Kaminashi Nozomi, whose dream is to become the richest Keijo player upon her graduating from high school. In the series, Keijo is followed very closely by the press and spectators, and we get a first glimpse at several competitors. Nozomi seems to be the underdog in the series, as each of the other contestants have some kind of background in the spotlight of various sports.

It seems like your run of the mill, female driven, ecchi anime through the first half of the episode. Things get serious once we flash back to the preliminary testing for the elite class, where we get to see the show’s real nature shines. Within moments of the mock competition, it’s apparent that Keijo!!!!!!!! can contest with some of the bigger hit, action anime, showcasing some really smooth and detailed action sequences, laced with some really creative techniques for the material they’re working with. This show truly gives new meaning to the idea of shaking what one’s momma gave ya!

At first glance, this series may seem pretty vapid to some, and drool worthy to others, but sporting hints of comedy mixed with a dynamic drawing style and imaginative plot twists, it’s no wonder this series made the cut from manga serialization into anime screening! Add this one to the list if what you’re looking for is something with some substance along with that waifu material~ I know I will be!
