I had to come back to this one. I watched a little bit of the first episode and immediately decided it was too much like Queen’s Blade. I watched some other things instead. When I finally sat down to watch it, I was pleasantly surprised.

I have a hard time sitting through many ecchi shows. Queen’s Blade was troublesome and Seikon no Qwaser was completely unwatchable, but I actually enjoyed Manyuu Hikenchou. I think it’s because it knows it’s ridiculous and never remotely takes itself seriously. It also does a remarkably good job of not acting like the rest of the show has no purpose beyond serving the ecchi content.
