Kaminashi Nozomi (17) is an exceptional gymnast. So much so that colleges with some of the best gymnastic programs are trying to recruit her. Unfortunately for them, she has other plans. Due to her family being extremely poor, money is everything to her. That's why she wants to step into the world of "Keijo." "Keijo" is a type of gambling sport where girls stand on a small floating platform and compete against one another. The aim is to push the other contestant off of the platform into the water, but they are only allowed to use their butt or breasts to push the others off. Will Nozomi be able to compete in the intense world of "Keijo" and bring wealth and fortune for her family?
This is a show for people that like boobs and LOVE! butts, they've achieved the perfect butt to boobs ratio, which seems to be around 6 to 1, at least plotwise that is.
The fanservice in this show is the best I've ever seen, the fights were made around butt-battles so none of the shots of butts seem out of place or distracting in the (great) fight scenes, and since the ridiculousness and intensity of the fanservice in those scenes is so high, all the other stuff seems kind of tame, which makes it a way better watch. It also really helps that it's pretty much exclusively girls, so no more classic annoying "But why would I want sex" harem guy, instead some sweet girl on girl actiooo...aaAccidents.
Now what also makes me love this show is that I'm pretty familiar with sporting anime and know the cliches, tropes and basic set-up, a lot of which come back in this show in a, let's call it, "feminised" form. Instead of a deadly right hook counter they learn a butt-uppercut, instead of an unstoppable drive they learn putting your swimsuit between your asscheeks to make their butt more aerodynamic and faster, instead of an antagonist who has sick dribbling skills they have one with an incredibly fast buttswing.
Seeing these variations of what most sports shows (and shounen shows in general) do in this form just felt great to behold.
It just reaches a level of absurdity, classic anime sexism, and sexyness where, despite being so dumb, "it just works".
The character are... forgettable to not noteworthy, at least at this point in the show, although I do really like the main characters motivation, it's so... simple.
That's what I also really like about it, it feels very light, there aren't very high stakes or life ruining matches. it's just a light watch without too much drama or taking itself seriously, which is sometimes just what you need.
Overall I'd give it 7.75 butts out of 10, with possibly more butts to come.
