SynopsisThe battle to find the supreme Sekirei continues. Still some of the fighters and their masters refuse to participate in the battle since losing it means to lose the Sekirei forever, and many of them actually care about their partners, while others just use them as tools. A storm is rising on the horizon, a bigger threat approaches the city and it's about to bring pain and suffering to those who love and care for their Sekireis.

Sekirei: Pure Engagement--as the Second Season of Sekirei, this season seems to be the shift from just boobies to actual story line and theme.
Story - 9
The animators took the liberty to adjust some of the storyline to their own liking...fortunately and unfortunately, while it does not completely follow the manga's plot, I would say it actually brings out the theme of love and unity instead of just plain old boobies.
There are parts that even have you crying/tearing up/getting angry, as they also bring out the cruelties of life (not to a mature extreme) and lets just say, much sacrifice was made...(both on the part of the manga, and of the sekirei).
Art - 8
The art actually improved from Season 1 and began to look more like the OG Author's actual drawings. Alot of the mistakes that were in Season one were Rectified. Good work! Still, obviously not the best, so only 8 points.
Sound - 7
The OP/ED themes are somewhat lacking, although cute.
If you're looking for an anime that will inspire you with breathtaking sound effects and soundtracks, this is not the anime for you. The soundtracks in Season 2 DO fit with the story and theme, but there could have been better choices in my opinion. (Although this could be me, as I am a musician who writes his own music...and plays 7 instruments...but back to the anime..)
Character - 9
Character development is EXCELLENT. By the end of this season, there is little chance for one not to have selected a favorite character...
I do dislike the fact that the animators seemed to favor Musubi (for example, in the main plot Tsukiumi had her own share of "kills," but in the second season Tsukiumi doesn't have kills, she gets "assists.") and thus it seems like Musubi and Minato become a "Predetermined" couple.
Which is annoying. I personally love Tsundere characters (my own view at any rate) and Tsukiumi was really well developed into that role.
At first sight, Kazehana appears as a typical drunk, but the animators did her a good turn by utilizing an episode entirely on her to better display the theme of love.
Pretty much all of Minato's Sekirei change by the end of the second season.
Maybe not Kusano and Matsu, but all of them tend to change and develop nicely.
Enjoyment - 9
Personally I enjoyed this season more than I enjoyed the first.
Again, personal preference so this should really not matter.I did like that this had a little less boobies and more story. (Although there was still plenty of boobies!)
Overall - 9
What can I say? The animators did the OG Author a good favor by doing it their own way.
If you are looking for some ecchi anime, and haven't watched the first season, watch the first season.
For those of you who prefer story, I would advise Shakugan no Shana instead, although this is not to bad overall.
Fanboys rejoice as the second season of Sekirei(a.k.a Pimpamon) is now out and I must admit, the direction to which this series is headed can only get better as the "game" mentioned last season, is finally starting to unravel.
Story - 7
For those who had followed the series back in 2008, Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~ is a continuation as Sahashi Minato endeavors to 'catch' as many girls as he can to add to his harem collection. For those that haven't seen the first season, I strongly suggest watching the series or else SPE will not make any sense to you(nor this review).
Plot-wise; with the final Sekirei being 'winged' in this season, SPE now delves into the Sekirei game which is the main focus to which Minato and others like him must compete in.
I must admit I've started to enjoy this series as the cast who had seemed like your average clichéd characters last season now seem to have some purpose for a plot to develop as a whole. Of course that doesn't mean the show has lost its other harem/ecchi clichés like your accidental 'oops, I tripped and fell on your breast' gag, but what it does mean is that this series no longer has to rely on its fan-service to keep us from seeing how good this show can be...and it is. Whilst the idea of collecting women as battle figures like you would Pokemon may not be to everyone's preference, it's a gimmick that's aimed at a certain crowd and being part of that crowd, I think it's just pure genius!
Art - 7
Art for Sekirei is always a crowd-pleaser specially in the male department. As a fan of ecchi and hentai material, the creator has made sure that all the leading ladies with D-cups and above, are captured in every angle possible for the service fans had anticipated since first season. In term's of animation I believe SPE has improved, and one episode of noteworthy is a particular Sekirei's 'winging', which I have to say was beautifully animated compared to the previous seasons Sekirei's.
Sound - 7
The OP "Hakuyoku no Seiyaku PE" sung by the leading ladies of the series gives a feeling of nostalgia of 2 years ago as it's in the same rhythm, as well as the ED "Onnaji Kimochi". Also as a guy who doesn't like change when it comes to sequels or spin-offs, I was pleased to find that Seven Arcs studio had kept the original seiyuus to lend their voices for the cast of its sequel(especially since I'm a big fan of Yukana).
Character - 5
Unfortunately not much has changed in regards to character development as Minato(uninspiring as he is), is still clueless to his actual surroundings. Whilst there are moments when you think he might actually shine when he stands up for one of his cast, it just doesn't outweigh how indecisive a male lead he can be.
Minato aside, the supporting cast is what saves the show as we're shown Minato's harem increased, who have likable personalities that correspond with the original girls, and which one of them pretty much provides the comedy and humor for the series.
One thing I did like about the sequel so far was the opening of episode one where we are shown a flashback of Miya(caretaker of Izumo Inn to which Minato boards) when she was part of the first Sekirei strike team. The two and a half minutes of pure demolition from her and her team, makes any Sekirei fan realize again just how "bad ass" she was. I can only assume that we will be seeing more of these flashbacks in future series as we discover how the Sekirei came to be.
Enjoyment - 7
As a guy who's not usually into harems(especially if it's an action where the male lead is useless), Sekirei is an anime I didn't mind watching and have found to be amusing since last season. Whilst it's not an FMA: Brotherhood or (insert your No.1 anime here), what it does deliver is pure fan-service with comedy and action. If anything, I believe this season may have raised my amusement up a notch opposed to the 6 I had given it back in 2008 and hopefully it get's better in future.(fingers crossed)
OverAll - 7
As I mentioned Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~ is not everyone's cup of tea, and for those looking for twists and/or a riveting story, this anime will not provide it. But if your into harems mixed with action an 'over the top' fan-service, and if you found the first season enjoyable, then Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~ is definitely an anime to pass your time with. read more
Girls are Great in Combat Battle [Many Girls too] , One male character surrounded by Girls and fight , with many ecchi things and harem
Similar story good vs evil, hot chicks and fighting, one guy who leads them, unlike sekerai the guy in hyakka is pretty strong and fights with the girls, both shows involve the girls kissing for big power ups
Both lead male character's (Minato and Muneakira) first kiss involves one of his harems falling from the sky (Musubi and Jubei).
Both animes features a lot of panty shots and boobies.
Both lead male characters always has someone in his harem that he fears the most.
In both animes the one that is closes (Jubei and Musubi) to the male character is the most naive and ditsy, but had the most potential of all the harems. There were also the youngest in the harem that makes the male character look like a lolicon.
In both animes it is the ladies that does the fighting for their lead male characters even if they are reluctant to allow them to (the ladies).
Also, in both animes the ladies reach their full potential when kissed by the male character.
One has more women in his harem that the other, however, one has more partial boob exposure and full panty shot that the other.
One has caught 2 girls falling from the sky, while the other has only caught only 1.
One has to watch out for 3 of the girls from his harem that he fears, while the other only has to watch out for the 1 who is the most jealous and his lady lady too (who is not part of his harem).
One has a member of the harem which the lead male character is not sure he can trust,while the other one has a member of his harem who was a dude before,but turned babe which the male character was reluctant to kiss at first.
One has 2 girls in the harem who were very young, one is flat chested but smart,the other is well endowed but stupid, while in the other anime the male character has only one who is very very young, adorable to all but very powerful.
One male created a harem of girls who fight for him and to power up the female warriors both male characters need to kiss the female character and both female character has a mark on them
