Story: Pathetic 1.
Please refer to the above explanation.
Art: Very Good 8.
Tbh, the rating was for the uncensored fanservice, and that's that, no further explanation needed.
Sound & Character: Mediocre 5.
Since it was still the same seiyuu who did the character's voice where I have no comment with, except the fact that I still hate the opening and closing theme. Also, the character were still the same where the guy is still the decisive character where he doesn't know what to do with his harem, and them harem girls still competing for the guy's affection. Though, in this OVA the competition for the guy's affection went intense.
Enjoyment: Good 7.
Tbh, it was the uncensored fanservice that got me for the most part, also the intensity for them girls to compete for the guy's affection also somewhat got me but barely, since, the ending was nothing and it was pretty much depended on the parent anime as a whole.
Overall: Dreadful 2.
It was nice but, imo it should've been included as one of the parent anime's episode, since that's what the OVA is and I'm sorry if there wasn't more I can say, in fact I probably won't blame them mods if they take an interest to remove this review. read more

Story and art: Mediocre 5.
Because it was still the usual plot where there is no plot and everything rides on the male character, Kazama, so therefore there is nothing more to say on something when it was pretty obvious that it was the usual, same thing with the art since the one who did the illustration of both the manga and parent anime is the same one who did it anyways.
Sound: Poor 3.
Now I may like the opening theme, but Kazama'z seiyuu, Konishi, Katsuyuki was really too old to do the voice of a 17 year old, in fact one can really tell that Kazama's voice is really done by a 40 year old man, Studio FUNimations should have taken the effort to choose a younger individual to do Kazama's voice. Also, Sakura's voice should have been done by Toyosaki, Aki, co'z, the character's seiyuu Takahashi, Mikako doesn't have that playful tone that would fit the characters personality. Roka's voice is ok, but Chitose's voice isn't , her voice should've have been done by Ueda, Kana, and not by Saito Chiwa.
Character, Enjoyment and Overall: Good 7.
Unlike the parent anime where it involves the guy and the girls' antics, this time the focus was about the guy's sister, Noe and the water girl Sakura, of course the main character Kazama was still there, the threesome has given this OVA a whole new lease at least just for this OVA, which is good, since the threesomes' did provide a much change of enjoyment for this anime, especially when the competition for the guy's affection was with Nao vs Sakura, so overall it was good that we get to see Nao having her shine in this OVA.
So should this OVA be followed up by a season 2, maybe, but, why not? read more

Story: Decent 4.
The problem with the story was that it has too much in it that the plot and the story-line itself wasn't easily understood, especially when it has a mixture of sci-fi mixed with supernatural, in my opinion the two genres are like oil and water that don't mix, it also has a combinations of "SOMEWHATS" and SOME SORTS"and I do mean "SOMEWHATS." First of all there is that somewhat of a harem combine with a some sort of yaoi, there is that somewhat supernatural beings represented by "Corpse" vs the some sort of sci-fi which was represented by the MA-Vess. There was also that somewhat of melodrama combine with some sort of action. Also the plot was obviously a recycle of "Guilty Crown" and "Black Bullet" which was given a little bit of a tweaking to make it look like it was different, but even so the story is still decent enough.
Art: Very Good 8.
I really like the CGI that was incorporated into the anime especially when it involves that Corpse thing and the MA_Vess, very fancy but very good indeed.
Sound: Mediocre 5.
Ok, as far as I'm concern, I just don't have any comment about the voice actors who did the voices of the characters here, as for the opening and closing, I really don't have much to comment about it, sorry.
Characters: Good 7.
At first it was one of those high-schooler who would be doing jobs that should be done by grown ups, but then again, as the anime progresses, you would forget that the pilots of those so called "MA-Vess'" were high-school kids, but what really prompt me to give this section a 7 was the intensity of them character's portrayal as they not only struggle to do their jobs to protect the population outside the "Lightless Realm" but also the conflict they encounter and their own personal feelings and fears that they themselves will end up as LIM's. But the one who really impacted me was Natsuiri, yes, it was that antagonist that really impacted me, not because I admire him, but rather, he is the kind of character that I really wanna see get turned into a necrometal, and seeing his demise is what convinces me to give this section its score.
Enjoyment and Overall: Fair 6.
For this anime to be 24 episode long was really very long, in fact nearly half of it was created to serve as a mere cliffhanger, ok, I really do enjoy watching it but only barely since my enjoyment stems for my desire to see how Natsuiri will have his demise also, we're left with other questions such as to how on earth did a small village where Tsugumi, Sasame and Minashi lived where able to obtain that "Corpse" thingy? Also, anime director Junichi Sato forgot to mention as to what "LIM" stands for ok so we know it is a kind of dark metal that powers the MA-Vess' and produces a sort of resonances with the pilot, but what was the science behind it? Also, how did Tsugumi survive in the 'Light-less Realm" for too long and didn't even bother to look for his friend and her sister Sasame while she is has that so called Corpse in her command, also why did she stayed in the "Light-less Realm." These question alone form a plot hole that basically kept me from giving this anime's enjoyment and overall a high score, so opinion wise, I just limit it to a 6 and I think that's fair enough.

So, I just gonna go direct to the point by stating my ratings for this anime.
Story, art and characters: Poor 3.
It maybe a spin off of "Gai Ren Zero," it may have a plot and it may have a story, but it ain't original, the concept was a complete plagiarize of plot from the things that I've mention from above in a bits and pieces way, from the Espers running amack in the streets of Tokyo to the occupation of the diet, I mean-c'mon, what's more to explain, when it was pretty obvious from the very start up to the finish, also, one can't deny as to how inconsistent as the first episode conflicts the last episode and that's something you have to watch since putting a spoiler would result them mods getting in my nerve (dang).
About the characters and art, it was pretty obvious that the way they were illustrated by writer Hajime Segawa and anime director Shigehito Takayanagi where somewhat plagiarize as well except that they modify it a bit to in a parody way so that it won't look like it was plagiarize, but still their characteristics where also plagiarize as well, now let go to them characters one by one:
Rinka Urushiba: Frankly, she is a parody of Storm from the X-man, except that she has the powers of Shadow cat, frankly she is Storm who has the attitude of Wonderwoman, her Kali skill was a copy from Dan Inosanto's scene from the Game of Death.
Kyōtarō Azuma: He is like Masayoshi Hazama from "Samumenco" in fact he is a complete plagiarize of the character from the said anime, except that he has feelings for Rinka, his powers was the same as "Night Crawler" from the X men and he also has the same traits of Hazama from 'Samumenco".
Rindō Urushiba: the main heroine's dad who for obvious reason looks like Wolverine, who has the powers of Magneto, and has the attitude of Batman.
Kobushi Kuroi: One look at her you would know that she is Jean Grey, who has the powers of Sue Storm from the "Fantastic 4," however she has the attitude of Wolverine from the 'X Men."
Murasaki Edoyama: One look at her , she is a female Bruce Lee who has the powers of "Psych-lock" or is that another telepath from the "X-men?" Well, I not sure since I'm not familiar with all the characters from "X-men."
Ayumu Oozora: he is like Dan Inosanto whose powers of Precognition whom I don't know where to refer it to, didn't fare up as far as I'm concern.
Pandaemon Youdani, Peggi and Parrot the Pelican:..........I just have no way of describing them.
The Professor/Hokusai Azuma: Ok, for obvious reasons, he is more like a parody of "Two face" who is one of Batman's nemesis and happens to have the powers of Professor X.
Minami Azuma: as I describe her, she is like Mystique who has the powers of Nigh Crawler as well.
Of course let's not forget the other support characters like:
Murasaki's dad who is a parody of King Leonidas from the 300.
The Police Chief who looks like Jules Winnfield from 'Pulp Fiction."
and the baldie guy of the anti esper task force, who looks like Charlie Wax from "Paris with love."
So why would I give the story, art and Characters a poor score? Co'z there really is nothing original about them and I think I've mentioned that already.
Sound and Enjoyment: Good 7.
Let's see, I like the opening theme and I like the seiyuus who did the character's voices, PERIOD! The enjoyable part was seeing the antagonist getting beaten by the good guys and that's as good as it gets.
Overall: Decent 4.
Despite of all the plagiarisms that has been modified into a parody and despite of hoe good the sound and how enjoyable it is...unfortunately, I can only give it a 4, since I can't deny about this anime's lack of originality, but it was still good enough to be enjoyed and that's how the cookie crumbles in this anime.

Story, enjoyment and overall: Mediocre 5.
The title of the anime is "Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!?" I can't help by notice Takehaya san's misused of the punctuation like the question mark and exclamation point , well I guess them Japs have a lot to learn about its proper usage, but enough of that, there isn't any story at all and its plot was simply too shallow to say the least, which something that one would commonly find in any anime with a harem genre, I gave it a 5 co'z there is no denying that it just another anime with such genre where guy has a lot of girls and doesn't know what to do with them, so should I explain more? I don't think so since it was pretty obvious. My enjoyment for this anime only stems from the moe that every guys likes about them girls as to who would the guy should be with, so overall there is really nothing to elaborate on something that was the usual, plain and simple.
Art and character: Good 7.
I can never understand as to why every character should have a cow lick- that is, if that's what those strands of hair hanging out on the sides of every female character we see, now I don't if that's illustrator Tomosane Ariike's style or something he just put for the heck of it, but it was really cute, so a 7 it is for this anime's art. Now, for the character, I'm giving it a 7 co'z I like the female character's in this anime, most especially, Yurika Nijino who is the quintessential bimbo, Sanae, the usual clingy girl (I know she is a ghost), Kiriha Kurano the usual buxom girl, Harumi Sakuraba the potential wife material and Ruthkhania Nye Pardomshiha who is the usual on the side girl, but not so with Theiamillis Gre Fortorthe whom despite being the quintessential tsundere is someone I like to hate, now I kinda feel bad for Shizuka Kasagi as a support character, she basically has the potential to be part of the harem however writer Takehaya san , doesn't think so, so, even though I like them female characters, they were the usual I can only limit it to a 7.
Sound: Decent 4.
Since I don't have much to say about it, but I can't help but notice that Kiriha Kurano's seiyuu, Masumi Tazawa, seemly has a mature voice that doesn't fit a typical character who is suppose to be a teenager.

Story: Fair 6.
Ok, high rating is for the anime's story plot where from the first arc involves the conflict between the Blooms and the weeds, where I like the part that them "Blooms" got owned by a weed in Tatsuya, however, as the first arc ends the second arc wasn't a bit exciting because the main character become one of the blooms and all of the sudden the conflict between the weeds and the blooms were forgotten. Another thing about the story plot was the fact that it has that geopolitical theme that was present on the last two arc where it indirectly concerns Japan's current conflict with China as I've mentioned, as if writer Tsutomu Satō was trying to put his nationalist thought into it in which in my opinion is unbecoming of the latter. Ok, so I do enjoy this anime's action-combine with magic and sci-fi, however I just couldn't fathom the fact that in this series where magic is turn into rocket science, which is not bad except that more emphasis was given to most of the blooms and little for them weeds, which is the reason why this part should be fair enough co'z it ain't that good but ain't that bad either.
Art: Pathetic 1.
Ok, so my question is what's up with the granny dress that them First High schools were wearing? Now, this is probably the only anime where there isn't much moe in it, where the schools girls wear what can be describe as nun- attire and the boys who wears nerdish coat, generally speaking I just don't like the school attire that the characters wore.
Sound: Good 7.
Basically, the score is for the closing theme in the last arc and the 1st opening theme that I like.
Character: Poor 3.
Whether it is an anime, light novel or manga, on thing is for sure.....that everything was put on the siblings and they are not other than Tatsuya and Miyuki, frankly the two obviously have an incest relationship and there is no denying it. I gave this part a poor score since at first, Tatsuya being able to owned them blooms was exciting, however he becomes a disappointment when he becomes one of the blooms despite of being a weed, though, for him to be this top dog isn't bad, but, he lacks one thing and yes he lacks a formidable opponent and I'm talking about an antagonist who has the capability to kick him hard and make him suffer, unfortunately his portrayal as an protagonist who is the best was seemingly a one side affair where it gets boring when he can kick his enemy's ass like hot knife to butter. It isn't just limited to him where it also includes the entire student council as well who also have their share of being able to defeated an enemy in a snap that also adds to the boring stuff, however the only consultation here is Miyuki whose allure and sweetness keeps ones boredom of this anime at bay.
Enjoyment: Decent 4.
Despite of the predictability that the protagonist can defeat the antagonist in a snap, it was still enjoyable enough to finish it up to the last episode, but only barely.l
Overall: Poor 3.
IMO, writer Tsutomu Satō should have not put any geopolitical theme in this series, also, since the latter didn't put his main character in such hard predicament and by making him have such godlike abilities really proves to be a drag which is why this anime deserves a poor score. Another reason why this anime (including the manga and the LN) should have a 3 was the fact that the title alone as I've mention was misleading, since how the heck can the main character (Tatsuya) be an irregular when he is suppose to be high school student and not someone working a part-time job in some cafe or restaurant, also it wasn't clear as how writer Tsutomu Sato defines 'Irregular" in his work title,which is one more reason why I gave this anime a low score. read more

Ok, so far nobody hasn't made a review of this retro type of anime, well, we all know that its manga version "Notari Matsutarou" was started in the 70's and ended in the late 90's and I can't blame anybody for probably having some lack of interest of anime since it has a rather slow progression and underrated, so I'm gonna give my ratings as to this anime's category, but take note that I'm gonna subject this review for updating on its last episode which right now (9/29/14), so here are my ratings, DOSUKOI!!!!:
Take note that this is an updated review, co'z when I made this review it was after watching episode 20.
Story: Fair 6. DOSUKOI!!!
Well, I give it a "Fair" score since the anime itself has a slow progression and pretty much random, but it still provides some aspect of entertainment where at one point I would like to see an ending where I would like to see Matsutarou getting owned big time and on the second is where I see his entertaining side where ,pretty much this anime's story plot rides on his journey and misadventure of being a Sumo wrestler which is why this part gets a 6 in my opinion, so as for my update of this anime for its last episode I will retain the score of 6.
Art: Decent 4. DOSUKOI!!!
Obvious enough, that this anime's art was pretty much retro in today's standard but it is still artistic in such a way. So I'm keeping the score the way it is.
Sound and Character: Good 7. DOSUKOI, DOSUKOI!!!
For the sound, the score is for the opening theme and for the VAs who did Matsutarou, Tanaka and Reiko's voice, since the anime has a seinen genre, so typically this anime is for the more older audience, so in such aspect the mature voices really does match this anime as a whole. The opening theme "Dosukoi Jinse" really does depict the life of a rowdy wrestler like Matsutarou , which was another reason why this anime's sound deserves a 7.The characters, ok so this is all about Matsutarou and Matsutarou alone, but let's not forget about Tanaka who is the one who keeps the main character in somewhat "in check," frankly as odd as it is the score is more for Tanaka than for Matsutarou, since he has to take up the burden of putting Matsutarou back on his track. Matsutarou, on the other hand really is one character that I like to hate, though, I did said that he is entertaining, I did said that he's is a character that I wanna see get owned and after watching the last episode I'm happy as to how things went for him (I'm not gonna put the spoilers, co'z I don't want them mods on my back) , now on Reiko, I would have wish that she has more aired time but alas she only limited to just a few moments with the main character, Matsutarou, also, she one character where I don't like to end up with Matsutarou and I'm glade she didn't. Let's face it, a nice girl like Reiko being with Matsutarou is like a girl marrying a guy who is a wife beater. I also like the scene where she walks away from Matsutarou, since it kinda made him a more matured person in a rude awakening way.
Enjoyment: Good 7. DOSUKOI!!!
What makes me enjoy this anime was the simple wish that I get to see Matsutarou getting owned, that is if he does get owned in any of the upcoming episodes and I'm glade he did, so I hereby change my score from 6 to 7 since I like the way how it ended.
Overall: From Decent 4 to very good 8. DOSUKOI!!!
All I can say is that when watching this anime one would hate the main character, Matsutarou at one point and on the next one would find him entertaining, also, I've change my score from a 4 to a 8, since in the end getting see him growing up.......late in his life, has made me change my score for this anime's overall
12 of 12 episodes seen
Story: Outstanding 10.
Refer to the explanation above. Take note the score is only for the plot where it does have some similarities with the classic movie.
Art: Good 7.
I like the way Nike is illustrated, though she more of a sexier version of Anna Harriette Leonowens. Also, I kinda like the Chinese Tibetan motif that were featured in the last 3 episode of this anime.
Sound: Poor 3.
Now, I may have liked the opening theme, and Nike's song "Tender Rain" but for the song "Tender Rain", well it was touching at first, but it becomes annoying later on. Also, Livi's voice would have been better of if it was continuously done by seiyuu Kudou, Haruka, instead of Shimazaki, Nobunaga, because an early teen's voice doesn't matured up until he is 14 years of age and frankly Livi doesn't look like he is 14. Nike's voice on the other hand should have that tsundere tone co'z quite frankly Maeda Rena's tone wasn't tsundere enough, also, I can't understand why Nike's grandma's farewell rain was done by a younger girl, it would have been more appropriate if Granny's farewell rain song was done by an opera singer, so its either studio Pierrot and VAP were cutting cost or Japan doesn't have any local opera singers.
Character: Dreadful 2.
This is the part were I would ask......as to WTF was series creator Shiina, Dai thinking for conceptualizing such thought about a grown up being in a relationship with a kid? Such character concept of this series' creator was enough of me to give this category a low score, let's go over the main character's
Nike Remercier- Ok, I have no problems of her marry off to a person of nobility, but my peeves about her stems from the fact that she is a person of nobility who happens to be rough around the edges, now to me I see it as a good thing where it shows humility, what I don't like was that her suppose husband is a brat and she doesn't do anything to get away from him, in fact whatever bet she had with her sisters can be declared as null and void. Now the conflict here was how does she sees Livi, does she see him as a poor soul that she took upon herself to comfort him or has she already develop that lolicon thing for him?
Livius Orvinus- He is another reason why I give this category a low score, I just couldn't fathom as to why a boy like him would go for a MILF like Nike, when he could have just went looking for Amaluna, also WTF was series creator Shiina, Dai thinking for letting a kid do a man's job. Frankly, I kinda see him as a kid entering puberty and probably he can see Nike naked and do get punish and I'm thinking that he gets to loose his virginity to her as well.
Enjoyment: Fair 6.
Mainly, there were Episodes that I find entertain and there are those that were a drag and that's the reason why I give this category its score.
Overall: Decent 4.
The story plot may be good, but the real let down was the fact that this anime has that reverse lolicon thingy, but then again it was decent enough to be view by everybody, except if kids would be watching this then their parent are gonna have a lengthy explanation about the cougar and tadpole relationship.

Story and Character: Poor 3.
The story plot was chaotic, misleading and above all one would more focus on those bodacious babes like Kiriko, Chiharu, Hokoin, Asai, the 3 bitches (Soji, Kondou and Toshizu), and Maika than anything else. Keiichiro was more of a double standard where at one point he is this troublesome toughguy who can't seem to get himself to banged a girl and at the same time he is a hero who wants to protect the people around his area.Just like the guy the other characters were also the same where they have roles were also a double standard i.e. there s a hot Iga ninja who deoesn't seem to have the ability to save herself let alone put up a good fight, there is a foxxy flat-chested ex-courtesan who at the last episode was unable to do her worst and a cross-dress hot babe who was suppose to be good with the katana but not good enough, then again her panty shot did make up for her short comings. Frankly only the antagonist were the only ones whom were right for their roles.
Art and enjoyment: Outstanding 10
Well just like the guys who were a sucker for them girls' bodaciousness , I too fell for it.
Sound: Mediocre 5.
I have nothing to say.
Overall: Pathetic 1.
Basically it desecrates the Tokugawa clan.

Story, Enjoyment and Overall: Very Good.8.
Ok, there isn't any story at all its just a plot where it revolves around a perverted manga artist and his pretty assistant, even so the plot alone was sufficient enough to carry this anime's 13 min per episode around, sure there were the usual fanservices, but I have to admit it really does add to this anime's enjoyment and I really have no reservation to give this anime's overall a high score.
Art: Good .7.
It's the ecchi and I do mean the ecchi that for me is the good part of this anime, especially when we talk about the fanservice.
Sound and Character: Fair.6.
Well.....for the sound, I have no qualms as to who did who about the character's voices, except that i kinda like the opening theme, but not the closing.....well except the last one where it was Aito who sang "Endless Panty" was really funny and frankly I look forward of downloading it as soon as links are available. As for the characters.........let's put it in this manner:
Aito Yuuki- The thing about him was that his character really can't hold on its own without his harem around, now Ashisu can provide such stability but not enough, which is one reason why this category deserves such score.
Ashisu Sahoto- The impact of her character really depend on Aito for this anime's comedy genre, now let's face it eventhough her character was to keep Aito in check and keep her sexual advances at bay, it was those very things that gives her character such impact.
Mihari Otosuna- Also another character that's supports Aito as the main protagonist (ok so he's a bit of a predator), but, her being this tsundere really gives Aito the impact it needs to add to this anime's comedy genre.
Sena Kuroi- As they say every pervert needs a good victim, and as much as I hate to say it she kinda serves that role as the unwilling victim of Aito's perversion.
Rinna Fuwa- well let's just say that she serves as the town bimbo, though it unfortunate that her role was a bit limited, which is one reason why it is another reason why this category gets such score.
Matome Minano and Sahono Ashisu- Another characters who kinda be this wanna be victim but cannot.
