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

It doesn’t take a genius to look at the anime page for Sekirei and have a pretty good idea what you are getting yourself into. But I have a weakness for such shows regardless how silly, played out, and clichéd they usually are. I have to say though that with Sekirei I was pleasantly surprised with the results.

The basic premise for Sekirei was interesting to me. In a lot of ways it reminded me of the action movie Highlander, only with tits and asses. The setting is a town in Japan controlled by the massive MBI cooperation. They are administering 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.
