Synopsis

Struggling yet brilliant 19-year-old Minato Sahashi has failed his college entrance exams for the second time, resulting in him being regarded as worthless by those around him. However, the course of his seemingly bleak future is altered dramatically when a beautiful, supernatural woman falls from the sky and into his life. That woman, Musubi, is a unique being known as a "Sekirei," a humanoid extraterrestrial with extraordinary abilities. These aliens are known for kissing humans carrying the Ashikabi gene in order to awaken additional latent powers deep within.

Recognizing the potential within the seemingly insignificant youth, Musubi kisses the bewildered Minato, initiating a bond between the two of them. This drags him into the high-stakes world of the Sekirei, where he and his new partner must compete against others in a battle for survival called the "Sekirei Plan." However, unbeknownst to the contestants, there is far more at risk that what the competition initially entailed.

Background

Sekirei's English adaptation was done by FUNimation in 2010, two years after its initial Japanese release. The series covers approximately the first fifty chapters of the manga on which it is based.

Sekirei is targeted at male audience, viewers who dislike ecchi/harem anime should look elsewhere. Likewise, those who love fan service should give Sekirei a try. It contains all the "ripped up clothes" scenes, "censored panty" shots, "semi-bare breasts", etc. You will not be disappointed.

It should be noted that while the show does follow the manga quite closely for the most part, the ending of the anime does deviate from the manga a bit.

Story:
Are you familiar with Fate/stay Night? If you are please continue reading this paragraph, if not skip to the next. Upon reading the synopsis, you may find Sekirei's plot to be very similar. ...

It doesn’t take a genius to look at the anime page for Sekirei and have a pretty good idea what you are getting yourself into. But I have a weakness for such shows regardless how silly, played out, and clichéd they usually are. I have to say though that with Sekirei I was pleasantly surprised with the results.

The basic premise for Sekirei was interesting to me. In a lot of ways it reminded me of the action movie Highlander, only with tits and asses. The setting is a town in Japan controlled by the massive MBI cooperation. They are administering ...

Overview:

Sekirei is an anime that has never been a critical darling! However, my good buddy convinced me to ignore all the critics and give this series a shot. Unfortunately...I kind of have to agree with the popular consensus on this one. Sekirei has enough problems to make it very hard for me to recommend.

Plot and characters:

The plot of Sekirei is that some hot alien chicks crash landed on Earth and an evil corporation is forcing them to pair up with bland males to act as their “masters” and fight each other to the death in a Battle Royale tournament with the winners getting to ascend ...
