It was Meiji 38 (1905), the Russo-Japanese War that had begun since the previous year was getting hard. In this severe circumstance, they reorganized the Raimu Squad. The members of the Raimu Squad were the girls. They were just like other ordinary girls who went to schools and yearned for love, except that they had "Raimu."
Inukai Tsuyoshiro was a young man who was newly chosen to be the leader of the squad. He was ambitious to fight for Japan.
When the young man met the five girls, the new chapter of "Raimu" began.
After noticing that this show had no reviews, I felt weirdly obligated to watch it and take notes and write one. I've always tried to keep these short, so I'll do my best to give you the info you need to make a decision.
First, this show is, to 90% of the Anime community, a total dumpster fire. This is something that is only going to hold appeal to true Harem-disciples like me. Even then, this is where you turn after you've seen all the good stuff. If you're desperate for a new Harem show ("Oh how could you run out, aren't there a billion?")
Bitch, I ran out, some of us do suck enough to pull it off. Those like me are going to be the only people with a reason to watch the show.
It really is as basic as it gets. Half of the first episode has the MC run from the left screen to the right, while screaming his head off. The introduction of our female characters, is essentially them professing love to our hero one by one while alone in empty rooms. The women then fail to repel a threat until our hero shows up and instantly saves them all, and single-handedly drives away the enemy. Awesome.
Here's the thing, it does actually follow through with what you expect from a Harem tag, which isn't always the case. Still, because it also tries to be an action show at the same time, it doesn't really pull off either. It's not until about 7 episodes in that we get actual conflict between the girls, over our MC.
It does spend some time developing our female characters, but it really is bare bones. They do just enough so that you can tell the difference, and maybe even pick a favorite.
As far as funny moments, there are only two that I can think of as genuinely funny. The action is passable, but it's often ruined by sub-par sound design. The hits and explosions kind of fall flat, you don't really feel any impact.
So, should you watch this show? Well, it's as cookie-cutter as a show can get, and I'm talking plain sugar cookies. Still, I like cookies, and if you've eaten everything else on the table, this show is at least edible.
As a true ecchi fan I didn't really bat an eyelash when this came up on my random spins for the week of anime I was watching.
While it does earn it's rating as the girls do expose their breasts in the earlier episodes it quickly moves away from that into a show about combat.
The premise of this show is sort of what if the cast of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure were all women and were a harem that fawned over a male protagonist. Said male protagonist doesn't have much dialogue, instead electing to scream at the top of his lungs most of the time. When he
does speak, the words usually involve a variant of "I'm a man." This truly groundbreaking commentary is usually followed by some Tom & Jerry antics.
I had to turn my brain off during the first episode as the male protagonist, Inukai spends the great majority of it screaming while a super repetitive piece of music plays, which I believe to be his theme. There's not many tracks at all for this show either. Maybe two or three. And the sound design is awful. I was about to drop it after the first episode, but what really sold me on watching this show was that the guy transformed into a mech and shot laser beams out of his nipples while screaming MANLY ATTACK. I knew at that moment that this show was going to be so bad it would be good, and it did not disappoint.
I would encourage anyone that watches this show to pay top dollar for it. Send a pile of cash and a thank you note to A.C.G.T for blessing the human race with this masterpiece.
