Synopsis

Minato Sahashi is extremely intelligent, yet due to his inability to cope under pressure has failed the college entrance exam twice. As a result he has been branded an idiot and loser by many. One day after talking to his yet again disappointed mother he comes into contact with a girl named Musubi who was under attack. The girl runs but takes him with her and soon finds that Minato, while unknown to him, is an Ashikabi, one of the mysterious set of masters that have the genetic trait that can become partners with some of the 108 cute girls, buxom women, and bishōnen called "Sekirei." The reason for the partnership allows the Sekirei to use all their power to win in the competition held by the mysterious MBI corporation.

Sekirei is targeted at male audience, viewers who dislike ecchi/harem anime should look elsewhere. Likewise, those who love fan service should give Sekirei a try. It contains all the "ripped up clothes" scenes, "censored panty" shots, "semi-bare breasts", etc. You will not be disappointed.

It should be noted that while the show does follow the manga quite closely for the most part, the ending of the anime does deviate from the manga a bit.

Story:
Are you familiar with Fate/stay Night? If you are please continue reading this paragraph, if not skip to the next. Upon reading the synopsis, you may find Sekirei's plot to be very similar. read more

Sekirei is actually a pretty generic show in terms of plot, characters, story, and art. The ecchi and harem aspect can immediately put people off. With those things in mind, this is by far one of my most favorite hidden gems in anime that i've found.

b-b-b-but you gave its a 7?? Yes i did, that's b/c the anime isn't finished; there are two seasons and many rumors about a third. This is also the first anime that has made me pick up the manga. If the story were complete, or at least if there were more episodes, this would get read more

Recommendations

Girls on opposite teams fighting each other using special powers. Both are ecchi series, but Sekirei has more fanservice.
In both animes they got a master whom they are fighting together with to become the last ones left and win the competition.
