I was prepared to hate this show based on the trailer(s). How blind I was.
This show takes place in our world. In in this world we humans are helped everyday apparently, by people from a parallel world, from a organization dedicated to "charging up" depressed individuals. Why? We don't know yet. We can't see them, but a special young man encounters one of our heroines, with a baseball bat.
ECCHI. Most assuredly not for kids, or those sensitive about abuse of women.
After watching 7 episodes now, I have to say I'm almost impressed. Well animated, with few QUALITY moments. Gratiutous ecchi, as per Ditama!!!
ie: orgasm induced urination due to blunt force trauma to the head.
The characters are cute and moderately will fleshed out in the story. The mini eps of the magical girl in most every ep are hillarious and a homage to bad hentai, or good hentai, whatever that is.
The story is still developing at this point. We have meet genki girl, tsundere girl, imouto and life long freind of the male lead and a mysterious youngster.
All fairly common.We've had some expository eps *nothing earth shattering story wise* and a few eps dedicated to pure fan service. They make me giggle. Now we are moving into the "srs bznz" arc.
I'm not totally down with our hero beating down the 2 main female leads, Plug and Arresta, with a bat *among others*. To be fair, it sems to cause no harm, other than a minor bump and uh...post orgasmic cleanup. But, DITAMA!!!
If you like DITAMA!!!, large amounts of ecchi, an over the top plot and did I mention the skin suits? Juude-chan might be up your alleyread more
Ok, I've just watch 3 episode of this anime, my review for this anime is as follows:
Art-Very good, especially the encchi part.
Sound- Not bad
Character: I like the way the female cast were drawn, but I REALLY REALLY HATE the male character "SENTO" co'z he really looks like a poster boy for a guy who beats women, Now, I don't mind the drawing, but him, hitting the main female lead (Plug and Arrester) with a bat, co'z either he's easily startle or just wanna keep the 2 to be quiet is not very funny the characters excuse is too lame, in fact I kinda wanna beat the crap out of him myself if I were a character in that anime. Co'z of his role in the anime I give this part a "POOR" number 3.
Enjoyment: With Sento hitting the girls with a bat........I'd say it's a "DREADFUL" number 2.
Overall: This is a kind of anime that every future chauvinist or wife beater should watch, this anime could have been nice without Sento hitting the female character with the bat, I can forgive the squirting, but not the girl beating. And frankly I'm not watching any further.
Trivia: In Africa, there is a certain tribe which the women literally would ask a man to flog her. read more
Ok, this is my first review, so bare with me. So basically, there's a girl named Plug. Her job is to charge up people who are depressed using electricity.
I liked the storyline, not much different from other anime I watch. From the 7 episodes I've watched so far, the story structure is quite solid (considering that this anime relies on fan service) and it's easy to understand what the various terminology in the story is, however there have been times where some of the terminology is ignored to provide a smooth storyline.
Very well done art and animation, colorful and very cute character designs.
Music and sound effects not too different from other anime, sound effects well synced and music added in the appropriate scenes.
The designs of the characters are flawless, however I don't like the male protagonist at all. All the characters around him seem to be very innocent looking yet he seems aggressive and abusive. There's a running gag in every episode where he always hits Plug or Alesta with a baseball bat, usually because he's annoyed.
Fairly enjoyable anime, the only thing wrong was the male protagonist.
Overall, I'd give this anime a 7. This is probably just on the line between ecchi and hentai. Far too much fan service, but for an anime that relies mainly on the fan service, as I said before, the story is quite good in my opinion. I would have given this anime an 8 or 9 but the main male protagonist really ruined the story for me.read more
And here, ladies and gentlemen, is the anime I would like to call "Double Standards."
When a shounen (supporting) lead in anime gets physically hurt by a chick, nobody pays any mind to it. It's "played for lulz," considered "ha-ha funny," and "you should shut up about it, you troll."
But when a shounen physically hurts a chick or more, and it's played for the lulz and "ha-ha funny;" then "it's not really funny at all." Because, you know. The Japanese animu industry makes more of the former and rarely focuses on the latter.
Which is sad. Juuden-chan is one of the more original anime I've saw in two decades. And that's saying a lot. Also, the upskirt panty-shots just make the show go down a bit smoother; despite how ridiculous it can get. I'm surprised that nobody had licensed and dubbed this yet.
Seriously, though. If societies could be judged by the themes of their cartoons and Japan allows its anime industry to create works like "MM!", Kodomo no Jikan, Girls Bravo, and even the Clannad franchise; then there's no hope for that country and its people. Nevermind us in the West with Family Guy and South Park.read more
