Takeru continues his education at Tenbi Academy as part of the newly formed Security Committee. As a team with the other members, they battle unscrupulous individuals who use their Maken for evil purposes. In the meantime, his libido and the conflicting romantic interests of the girls surrounding him complicate matters considerably.
Eat a hearty breakfast of tits men, for tonight we dine in hell!
If you think the Harem genre is stupid, then you clearly haven’t seen Maken-Ki Two. Whereas the first season was nothing more than a substandard harem, the sequel is without a doubt the most brain damaging harem show of the year, if not ever. This anime sets a whole new level of stupidity within the harem genre, sinking so low it reaches the deepest and darkest abyss, never witnessing a single beam of light. So mind-numbingly bad, it prevents any form intellectual thought. Even harem junkies take no hesitation in expressing their dislike towards this abomination.
Is there even a plot?
Yes, Yes. There is a plot. The plot is tits. In this episodic anime, every single episode always reaches an inevitable conclusion: a bonanza of tits. Every time the plot wavers away, the gravitational pull of tits corrects its path. And when the plot eventually takes a meaningful direction while having tits at the same time, more tits appear to drown us. Allow be to present some examples.
In one of the episodes, the protagonist wakes up and somehow manages to faceplant himself into a gigantic set of K cups. Later on, one of the characters buys a teddy bear. And what happens? The teddy bear is in fact alive and likes to indulge itself in the cleavages of humongous titties. In another episode, the girls are forced by their principle to limbo under a bar, and of course, all we see is them struggling to get their huge tits under the bar. These are only three scenes off the top of my head, but you can clearly see my message here; that any form of ‘plot’ revolves around tits one way or another.
From the very first episode, Maken-Ki wastes no time bombarding us with big, fat, juicy tits. From A cups to K cups (yep, K for King), Maken-Ki has no lack of tits. This is a true haven for connoisseurs of tits. But even though tits fill every corner of my screen 90% of the time, why haven’t I gotten an erection yet? The answer to that question underlies within the delivery of these scenes. Most of the time, these tits appear out of nowhere, never failing in making viewers confused. Yes, you will be sitting there in awe while repeatedly saying “lolwat?” and “dafuq?”
Apart from the relentless attempts to shove tits down our throats, there are other crucial problems within the plot, most noticeably its lack of any meaning or direction whatsoever. Furthermore, events never correlate. If one watched the first minutes of an episode, then skipped to the last, they’d think ‘twas from two different episodes. This brings us to another issue with the fanservice. There is no romanticism at all; just an endless string of implausible events, thus making the fanservice bland and repetitive. Clothes ripping off during fights? Obviously. Tits struggling to fit in bras? No lack. Randomly walking in on naked girls? More times than I’ve said the word “tits”.
As expected, the entire cast of characters are clodpoles whose hobbies include the tendency to indulge in foolish antics. Wielding a power which he hardly ever uses, the protagonist is perhaps the biggest tit out of them all. Character development is all but naught. Instead, there is a lot of breast development. We learn about the different cup sizes of everyone, as well as how firm their tits are.
The Opening is a generic J-pop song easily skipped. The ending, while also being generic, features a short track showing the girls in bras from smallest tits to biggest. Voice acting is mediocre at best. Despite being tagged with super power and action, there are very little of these scenes; instead, Maken-Ki relies on a time-tested formula. Tits. Huzzah! Indulge yourselves in a mouth-watering banquet of tits, which is what most people would be here to feast on. As quoted from one of the characters “Amazing! They’re larger than a meter! Truly an island paradise of breasts!!” Indeed, you will find tits of all assortments here. Tits from different camera angles. Tits. Soft, firm, big, small. Maken-Ki has it all. Nonetheless, these tits are neither fapable, nor sexually gratifying to watch. This is not only due to the unpassionate manner which they are presented, but also because they are never fully nude. In summary, Maken-Ki Two is the bastard child of hentai and ecchi, failing drastically in both genres.
If you like the luscious fruits of the female body, will you like Maken-Ki two? No. You might as well go watch some hentai. At least that is guaranteed to give you a boner. This only insults our intellect. read more
I watched the first season of maken-ki!It was an ordinary ecchi-harem show with a perverted MC,perverted best friend,childhood friend and some random girls...But this season managed to be different from any other ecchi anime,reached a new high...
There is no character/character development in this season,there are just different boob sizes...We didnt even see MC Ooyama Takeru enough to see if he has some development(because he has no boobs) we just know he has his maken now(which he never uses) and he doesn't need glasses anymore...
It isn't an exaggeration,there exist no story in Maken-Ki! Two...closest thing i can remember as plot in this season was the episode we learned cup sizes of every character in the show using the alphabet(One of the Teachers was a K or Z cup )...One episode was about a girl( i don't even remember her boobs from first season) fantasizing about another girl for 24 minute,another episode was about a teddy bear(!)doing something to some boobs for another 24 minute...
i liked the opening but there was nothing special about other soundtracks.
Well there are boobs,there are small boobs,big boobs,bigger boobs(mostly bigger boobs )...These boobs sometimes wear bras,sometimes they wear swimsuits,sometimes they are naked...The only development seems to be about boobs,they grow bigger after first season and they are so unrealistic that it just hurts to watch them and i can honestly say that as a normal man who loves boobs i didn't enjoy watching these boobs running around for 24 minute every episode,not even a little...(Well,maybe just a little)
If you want to watch an ecchi anime without any second genres like action,comedy,drama,romance watch it otherwise don't waste your time...even though thats the case i would advise you to go watch hentai instead(at least you wouldn't fall asleep while watching hentai)...
Edit:Some Wizard guy made Fanservice compilations of this after BD releases so you can watch those instead of struggling 10 episodes of boring stuff...read more
I watched the first Maken-ki and enjoyed it fairly well though I though there was a bit too much fanservice. The end of Maken-ki left me looking forward to season two for more of the storyline about the MC and the immediately surrounding supporting cast. Maken-ki two was a horrible let down.
There was absolutely NO continuation from the original Maken-ki. Previously developed character relations were lost. The excessive fanservice was doubled (in certain episodes). Despite my belief that there was too much fanservice, there was also censoring...horribly inconsistent censoring. If you were hoping to find out more about ANY of the characters from the original, I am sorry to say you won't find it here.
Story: 1/10 -- Non-existent
Art: 7/10 -- I do prefer this type of artwork over others, but at times you can see where the artists got lazy and ignored quality. There are also times where extra "chub" is added to characters that wasn't previously there.
Sound: 7/10 -- I don't find myself to be a good judge of openings and endings, but as for dialogue and sound FX, the volume levels were consistent so that constantly adjusting my volume throughout a single episode was not necessary.
Character: 1/10 -- Such disappointment. All character development was lost. Only one episode had mildly interesting character interaction, but it was ruined towards the end and completely forgotten by the next episode.
Enjoyment: 3/10 -- I HAVE seen worse, but I had to push myself to watch all 10 episodes so that I can rightfully claim to have seen all 10. I was not amused (except for that one episode mentioned above--short lived), in fact, I found myself pausing every episode at least once to do something else (very unlike me).
Overall: 3/10 -- While I did enjoy the artwork, this season of Maken-ki was even more of a waste than Full Metal Panic - Fumoffu. I will NOT be watching this again for any reason. (sent to recycle bin and deleted)read more
Maken-Ki is a strange case for me. I actually liked season two more than the first season. Before you look at me as if you were an Edvard Munch painting, allow me to explain what twisted logic made me see things this way.
Let me ask something first, does anyone really care about the story of Maken-Ki that much? As other reviewers keep stating, the first season had some plot and developments, while this had little to none of it. However, does that mean the plot of season one was any good? Not really. It had a generic and inconsequential plot that amounted to very little at the end, presented alongside intrusive fan-service that distracted from any potential immersion that could be had.
What I appreciate in season two is that it’s honest. Without a story to follow, the fan-service ceases to be the distraction, and becomes the focus. Rather than shove together two elements that don’t mix, season two dedicated itself to shameless titillation alone. No story could be deflated by the fan-service, and by extension no fan-service could feel intrusive, since there was nothing to intrude on. I think the first episode is the perfect example of fan-service actually playing a role in what’s happening, where the key to solving a series of attacks lies in the pattern of the girls’ breast sizes. In the history of ecchi this might be the first time I’ve seen the perverted main character’s interest in breasts come in handy, something that I felt made it more true to the premise.
It goes without saying that constant fan-service is only a short-term solution to keep fans interested. The lack of an overarching story, romance and a seductive tone to balance out the ridiculousness gives the audience little reason to return to the series in the long run. Thankfully I never thought Maken-Ki deserved a longer running show to begin with.
Overall, Maken-Ki! 2 is fast-food media in its most distilled form, doing a decent enough job of being balls-to-the-wall exploitation, with good fluid animation to make it a feast for the eyes. I can only recommend it to those that are looking to fulfill their most basic needs, which they could get much easier by just looking up some hentai.read more
