At St. Mihailov Academy, a series of serial murders have taken place with all the victims being young women. Who is this rampant culprit? And which beautiful maiden will fall prey to his evil next?
After a horrible day of being harassed by their classmates, the adopted sisters Mafuyu Oribe and Tomo Yamanobe stumble across an injured young man and decide to bring him back to their place to recover. That very night, Mafuyu ends up at the mercy of the infamous serial killer. Strangely, he demands not her life, but instead an icon left behind by Tomo's father.
Luckily, Sasha, the mysterious young man that the sisters had taken in, comes to the rescue just in time, helping Mafuyu avoid the same fate as the other victims. Sasha reveals that he is a Qwaser, an individual capable of controlling scientific elements by partaking in Soma, a miraculous essence found within the breasts of women. Capable of manipulating iron, Sasha crafts a giant scythe and slays the serial killer. He enrolls in the academy the next day signalling the beginning of a very "interesting" school year.
Seikon no Qwaser is an action-heavy story that doesn't shy away from fan-service. Join Sasha and his allies as they fend off the evil that is nearing in.
Seikon no Qwaser uses content from the first seven volumes of the manga as its source material, but drastically deviates to create an anime-exclusive finale. It was also heavily censored during its initial broadcast due to an excessive amount of sexual content.
#1: "Passionate squall" by Ayumi Fujimura, Aki Toyosaki, Minori Chihara, Aya Hirano and Yoko Hikasa (ep 1-4, 6-12) #2: "Mimei no Inori" by Minori Chihara (ep 5) #3: "Wishes Hypocrites" by Ayumi Fujimura, Aki Toyosaki, Minori Chihara, Aya Hirano and Yoko Hikasa (ep 13- 23) #4: "Errand" by faylan (ep 24)
What would you do if you had the power to control an element, and power it up through breast milk?
I'd be scared of babies.
Anyhow, Seikon no Qwaser is... a unique concept. I first did not want to watch it due to the overwhelming amount of boobs. Really. Then I heard that it had a second season. I gave it a second try and found it amusing.
Since the plot summary is already written in the anime info, I won't bother including a long one.
Alexander BlahBlahvich, aka Sasha comes to this school to find this relic. He clashes at first with two female students, Mafuyu and Tomo
whatevertheirnamesare. Turns out they're special. And now Sasha has to protect em by sucking girls' breast milk, or 'Soma' to empower his control of iron. Other Qwasers, like him, control a metal element (and I whip up my periodic table), well whatever, you'll just understand if you are good in chemistry. An example would be Katja-sama and her wonderful copper. There's a catch though. They all want that relic as well.
The story is normal. And what do I mean by normal? I mean that there is a main character and his mascots searching for something, and bad guys want it too. That's all there is to it, really. Just prepare yourselves for some plot twists and awesome wtf moments where Sasha just beats the shit out of stuff after sucking on breasts. Isn't it just normal?
The characters of this anime are your unoriginal harem characters. Tsundere Mafuyu, airhead Tomo, quietly obedient Teresa. And then comes Sasha (Alexander). How cute, a tsundere shotacon. Not much creativity in the character department, and as always, the female tsundere will have feelings for the male protagonist. Other characters make the show more fun to it. Who could ignore lovely Miyuri? And you should definitely bow down to Katja if you like BDSM. I'll shut up now. Did I mention that Sasha has a horrible past? Hence his name Sasha the Martyr. Maybe.
It's nice to see Sasha's development throughout the anime. I mean, he turns /nice/. And Mafuyu? A bit more honest than before. Otherwise, there is nothing else to include. Maybe the fact that Tomo can cook a bit at the end of the anime.
The background music was boring. I could remember the only 5 tracks it has (I'm guessing here). Once you hear one, you can tell what's going to come next. There's one for breastfeeding time, two battle themes, bah. It's fitting but not good enough.
Voice acting is good. If you watch it, you can tell. Problem is the Russian they put in and the way Mafuyu pronounces Alexander. Damn she makes it sound painful. I was glad when she started calling him Sasha. Another flaw with VA however, is the moaning noises. Please, make it stooooop. Does sucking breasts really create such ecstasy that you cannot keep your mouth shut? Well maybe it's different when the Qwasers do it. I wouldn't know.
OP and ED were fitting. Had a slight, how do you call it, 'church' feel to it. The first ending was so eargasmic. All those lovely voice actresses singing one song. /applause. Nothing special after the first ED. Beats the rest.
Art? What art? These things are just women with large blobs attached to their chest. I'm referring to the majority of the characters, of course.
Okay, fine, the art is good. Only parts when you can wince is when there are naked breasts. An overload of them. When I see Tomo, it's like a walking pair of fleshy blobs. And then I see nothing else.
Huh? Of course I watched the uncensored version. I didn't understand it when it was censored. So watch the uncensored one; makes more sense.
Pfuuuu, enjoyment. I enjoyed this anime. This actually made me feel like chemistry lessons were useful. I also liked the characters, especially Sasha and that tomboy with titanium powers.
Final verdict? Watch it if you want to. 24 episodes of boobs is a lot, and I watched them in 3 days. or something.
Art was good, story was okay, sound was bleh, except for voice acting, character was bleh. Overall: GOOD.
I couldn’t enjoy the flow of the show, because it was so thoroughly distracting. The show couldn’t make you keep a straight face, because every time you were serious for a battle, you just had to see some twit suckling a nipple. Everything that the producers and writers and developers of the last 30 years have tried to hide, was totally shit on. All the stupid coincidences of leaves blocking certain areas or objects closer to the screen that block a body – even the steam aspect of those ecchi genres made them what they were: ecchi! Quite honestly, that’s the way it was supposed
to stay. If you wanted anything more, you could’ve gone to watch some porn somewhere! But this anime was completely outrageous.
The story was unique, but so poorly played out and depicted, that it brings it all down to mediocre. The unique part being breast milk as a catalyst for power. True, not every show should follow in the EXACT footsteps of the last, but they could have at least stuck to the traditional way of dealing with ecchi shows. I AM a guy, but that doesn’t mean I was looking for porn when watching anime. The whole loli goth thing was attractive enough of an idea, but it was misconstrued with the clash of so many unneeded characters. The whole story can all be summed up in two words: FAN SERVICE.
The art was good. It is by no means a great animated show, but it isn’t horrible. It’s essentially average animation for an anime. Everything was well enough depicted, and the nudity was ON PAR with most hentai. Anime should rarely be on par with hentai, which is why this is such a huge issue. There are more nipple shots in this show then there are black men in Lisa Lampanelli at any given moment.
Now admittedly, the soundtrack wasn’t bad. The opening wasn’t bad. The ending was ok. That’s about all there was. The rest of the soundtrack was forgettable.
This was probably the worst category of them all. You cant get passed the characters self reflections who ask themselves moral questions, only to realize that it didn’t really matter, because it goes right back to the norm (nipple sucking) the next episode. More than that, the dumb bimbo with huge tits isnt even needed, because there is really no point to having her. True, she does play a big role at the end, but the point is that she didn’t HAVE to be dumb as shit. She could’ve been a regular girl. Even a smart girl. And it wouldn’t have mattered. And that’s what urks me. I think that every character should be placed and have a personality/attitude that’s relevant to the entire story. IF the story has a character who could easily be the exact opposite (personality/looks wise) and the story would still work perfectly, then it’s a wasted character, and its value/existence in the show is useless. Another character that pisses me off is the main character himself: Alexander (or Sasha for short for some reason…). Though the majority of his pictures make him look like a hard badass, how he’s played throughout the show is disgusting.
The spoiler runs till the next topic, btw.
I know I shouldn’t add a spoiler, but the one part that almost made me drop the series was when he lost his memory and thought he was a girl. I’m not bothered by a cross dressing anime character, but Sasha, being the badass that he is supposed to be, started to turn into a cross dressing feminine b*tch who just made me want to leave the series alone and never even look at the name of the show again.
I couldn’t enjoy it. There were so many babes with huge boobs that I couldn’t really pay attention to the story. The only possible enjoyment I got from watching this was the fan service. And that’s what the entire story is. Fan service. Nothing more, nothing less. Actually, a little more. I don’t consider nipple sucking fan service, I consider it hentai. So yeah.
Overall, the story could’ve been a lot better. It should’ve played out in a more conservative manner, and it would’ve been better received, and probably could’ve been better sponsored for a second season. But, because of the flashy nature of the show, it was a load of dog shit. The story eventually lost out to the fan service, and by the end, you weren’t looking forward to the next mystery. You were looking forward to the next fight, and by that, I mean you were looking forward to the next time you saw someone suck a boob.
After 5 days I finally did it. I finished the worst show I have ever seen in my life… but that was to be expected since I watched it for the sole purpose of proving my nerves of steel. Before watching this I didn’t know what a show had to put me through, so I am forced to give it the lowest score possible and to be honest I didn’t think this show would cut it. So what happened?
Let’s get down to business, shall we?
(note: This might contain minor spoilers)
To summarize it vaguely: This anime follows a generic shounen plotline, filled with borderline pornographic
scenes, which take up a big part of the screen time. For the interested, these scenes consist of powerful human creatures, regardless of gender, literally sucking a magical energy-drink-like fluid, called “soma”, out of a female virgin’s breast. These creatures, called Quasars, possess the ability to control a certain type of atoms to a molecular level, unique to each individual quasar, but without having consumed quality “soma”, they can’t use their powers and thus are as useless as the rest of the normal humans in this show.
Let’s start with the characters:
Hell, Alexander Nikolaevich (“Sasha”) _ 13 year old Russian exchange student and Quasar of iron. He has a dark past, which fails to grip the viewer making him even more unlikable than he already is. For some unclear reason he gets into a mutual love relationship with the female lead Mafuyu.
Oribe, Mafuyu _ around 15 years old. She is an uninteresting character, which only serves as the love interest of our MC. Her stubbornness and misjudgment of all the important scenes made her unbearable.
Tomo Yamanobe _ around 15 years old. She has the biggest breasts in the show. She is the one Mafuyu promised to protect. I have to give props to Toyasaki Aki, her voice actress, for the voice acting of both the female Tomo and the manly quasar of gold. Her childish personality was really enjoyable, giving refreshment to the rest of the bland characters.
Ekaterina Kurae (“Katja”) _ (no idea about her age) She is a masochistic loli and was for me the only enjoyable character in the cast. The show started off promising torturous scenes, which she embodied perfectly. Sadly enough the show didn’t deliver those as it progressed, giving Katja even less screen time and making it even less enjoyable than it already was.
(those are the only characters worth mentioning)
The story revolves around our Russian exchange student called “Sasha”. He is a quasar and has a job to do in Japan. On my first watch (and I’ll be damned if it isn’t the last) it was unclear what his goal was exactly, since you easily lost focus every now and then because of the seemingly scheduled soma feast, our important characters had to go through every episode.
In the first 12 episodes you get introduced to the protagonists and their friends with some backstories here and there. The show starts off depicting a torturous murder on a young girl. Regardless of the presentation, I somewhat liked this kind of tone but soon enough it was clear this was going to be bad take on a shounen series with tons of fan service. In the next episodes you see “seemingly pointless fighting”, which turns out to be the master plan of the evil guys, to prepare our Sasha to be sacrificed for some reason (because that always works out...).
Surprisingly enough there was a good episode in this mess.(I will now take a detour to describe the only good moment in the show)
I have to give credit to episode 6 of the series, since it was the only episode in the series where I said: “wow they did something right”. Our gang of friends has to play maids for the rich girl, Tsujidou, Miyuri, so they can get a key for some villa to find something. While fooling around they get raided by a group of hired Russian soldiers who were ordered to find some sort of magical egg. At that point our main cast was consisting of tied up attractive underage girls and a boy who were lustfully glared upon by pleasure seeking soldiers. Everyone who hasn’t lived under a rock will surely know what is about to happen. Surprisingly enough the rich girl decides to sacrifice herself and offers to strip for the soldiers, so her beloved friends can get out safe. In an earlier dialogue the loli of the cast, stated that she is like jewelry, once you get bored of it or it loses its worth you throw it away. This is how she indirectly described her relationship with the rich girl, who is obsessed with wealth, as something temporary depending on how long she can last as her “little princess”. The stripping scene was accompanied by a melancholic piano which made you care for the first and last time about any character in this show. The loli ends up wanting to strip too and takes sip of soma while at it, so she can brutally massacre the soldiers and satisfy the viewers, in the meantime developed, cathartic thirst. The episode ends with the commander of the soldier group committing suicide and blowing the whole place up. Miraculously, our cast of characters survives. After this the show went downhill, dropping the themes and atmosphere developed earlier. But let’s get to the second half of the show.
Episode 13 and 14 are to be labeled as pure fan service (although eps 14 was somewhat unique and slightly fun to watch with the rich girl being a superhero or what not BUT this will get too long if I start talking about another episode in detail. In short: “boob lasers” and “reminded me a bit of Gurren Lagann”).
In the remaining episodes 15-24 the story goes really fast to reach the finish line. Introducing more Characters no one cares about with some of them ending up getting killed, and letting characters die who were established in the first half (no one from the main cast though). Our MC, Sasha, is now powered up and ready to fight the end boss. With the help of his friends, and the big breasts of Mafuyu, he somehow succeeds, defying all the established power levels in the story this far. The Last fight doesn’t make sense at all; victory isn’t achieved by any masterful strategic battle plan to defeat the superior enemy, but by the inability of the final antagonist to instakill the whole cast (as we have seen him do in other scenes), because of… reasons…? I don’t know, I get really angry when bad guys mess up for no reason at all and give the good guys an easy win…
After the final fight most of the new characters, which didn’t end up dying, just disappear and don’t matter anymore, but hey I guess that’s what happens when you defeat the end boss. In my opinion, the Hydrogen and Carbon Quasar combo should be able to annihilate everything, but they only get one fight, which ends up being pointless.
In the last Eps Sasha has to leave because his job is done, letting us watch him and Mafuyu being together for the last time. This would be a heartwarming episode, but only if we actually cared for them or simply understood why those two got into a relationship in first place.
The quality of the show is on relatively low standards, considering it’s a 2010 show. It looks and is animated even worse than older shows like Studio Deen’s Fate/Stay Night. All the character designs look like uninspired textbook shounen characters. Most of the fights are portrayed in a way which does not require good animation nor choreography, and if it does… then we have Deen-like movements.
Music was used to make scenes emotional, but as stated before the generic dark backstories don’t sell well. You end up not even caring if someone gets hurt or has his loved ones getting killed in front of his eyes. In other words: nothing noteworthy.
Enjoyment was nearly inexistent for me. The constant slap to the face of boobs, panties and lewd scenes made it unwatchable, even forcing me to pause and tab away for some minutes… or hours. It’s clear as day that this show was made with the clear aim to make it appeal to certain demographics, such as horny 13 year olds or hard core ecchi fans. I don’t belong to any of those and thus this show was a big miss for me in the end (as expected). If the show was presented in a more mature way, or just kept its tone and atmosphere from the first episode I would have enjoyed it a bit. But then again I wouldn’t have watched it in the first place. It’s like saying “if the show was better it wouldn’t be bad” so it doesn’t matter in the end.
For the interested in numbers:
(Art and sound didnt leave any impression which could influence the overall quality/enjoement and were thus neglected)
If you think you can jerk off to minors sucking each other’s breasts in borderline pornographic presentation and scenes, then this show is for you. If not then be happy to leave.
What happens when you take plot elements from Fullmetal Alchemist, Hellsing Ultimate, and D.Gray-man, then mix them into a bad hentai? The answer is something quite abhorrent. Seikon no Qwaser isn't just your everyday bad echii. This one ups the ante and has a 12 year old boy and a 10 year old girl sucking the breasts of women in their older teens and engaging in various sexual acts. In episode 3, a 10 year old girl threatens to kill an older teen if she doesn't consent to giving her cunnilingus. Fortunately, we don't actually have to see this. We only see the little girl's
face and hear the lapping sounds thanks to a discretion shot. Otherwise, this series wouldn't even be legal under United States Federal Law. It only gets worse from there. This series would make Vladimir Nabokov, the creator of the Loli genre, blush with shame. I am not a squeamish prude. My favorite anime is Elfen Lied. Seikon no Qwaser made me feel very, very uncomfortable!
There are many wizards called Qwasers capable of bending specific elements to their whim. A secret arm of the Russian Orthodox Church has some of the most powerful wizards and uses them to hunt heratic wizards. The most powerful of the church's paladins is Alexander Hell. This is of course not to be confused with Hellsing's secret arm of the Catholic Church and their heretic hunting paladin Alexander Anderson. This is totally different! It is up to Alexander or "Sasha" to kick ass with his scythe and protect his harem of big breasted ladies. How does he get his awesome powers? By graphically sucking their tits and drinking the milk of course! How else would a wizard get his powers? Apparently one underraged Russian isn't enough and soon the Church sends another one called Ekaterina to assist Alexander. The story pretty much solely consists of fight scenes and sucking tits. The writer also has a rudimentary knowledge of chemistry and tries to show it off so frequently that even Kurt Vonnegut would tell him to knock it off!
Oh dear god do the characters suck in this one. Alexander is in the running for the most 2 dimensional Russian stereotype character in all of anime. His only rivals are Zangief from Street Fighter and Russia himself from Hetalia. The really sad thing is that Alexander is the best character in this piece of shit. We also have generic tsundere girl and clueless bimbo with ridiculously huge tits. Of course the psychotic loli Ekaterina shows up later, but she has as much character depth as the shallow end of the pool.
Surprisingly the art in this anime isn't bad. This thing actually had a budget and clearly had decent animators working on it. The tits look very...succulent
The soundtrack is also one of the few highlights of this series. It is genuinely pretty decent and boasts catchy opening and closing themes as well as background music.
If you are in this one for the plot, firstly you are an idiot, secondly you are going to be very disappointed. If you are in this for the porn, the pedo scenes will make that boner go away faster than seeing Larry King naked on a cold day. It is possible to enjoy Seikon no Qwaser... if you are a pedophile or clinically insane.
This is one of the worst anime to come out in the last 5 years. There has been a lot of crap and admittedly I haven't seen Pupa and Boko no Piko, but this one can proudly hold its own in a sucking contest with the worst of the worst.
There's nothing wrong with frequenting a slightly predictable, stable anime that has some form of boundaries or limitations that you can count on. But we also need something completely unpredictable, something that doesn't make a lick of sense, because we must feed our desires for the strange.
