Kenko Zenrakei Suieibu Umisho #01 – Revenge of the Schnoz-Thief

July 3rd, 2007

Ninjas have kidnapped Japan’s noses! Are you a bad enough dude to rescue them?

Seriously. This isn’t like Key, where you have giant mouths and eyes that swallow up the entire face so that you don’t notice the lack of noses. This is the work of something entirely more sinister.


In case anybody was curious, yes, they keep the naked swimming, so yes, this is the relatively shameless fanservice show of the summer, fully of wet shining curves, panties, bouncing breasts and naked flesh. Which… pretty much summarizes my thoughts on it. There’s a bit to like with an occasionally decent joke, but the nonstop barrage of T&A makes it difficult to keep watching without feeling dirty. And keep in mind that I made it through Ikki Tousen DD without needing more than a cold shower.

So, yes, this is more shameless than Ikki Tousen. Well, outside of the DVD snippet. And without any of the occasional action either.

As far as technical merits go, it’s about average. Nothing really impressive, but outside of the missing noses, nothing that made me cringe either. The music also ranges the gamut, though it does use the horn “waa waa waaaaah” as the punch line to a couple jokes which amazed and shocked me. I think the last time I saw that was when I somehow stumbled onto a 3am airing of The Muppet Show… or maybe somewhere on The Price is Right.

I guess it’s not really a terrible show, but when its closest relations are shows like Love Love and Amaenaidayo, it’s not really all that hard to be better. I really can’t think of a compelling reason to keep following it though. Maybe if I was really hard up for an assault of blatant and shameless fanservice, but really… that’s about the best I can say for this one. If I really felt the need to be barraged by panties and boobs, I’d just watch Girls Bravo again, at least the jokes are better and everybody can get behind Koyomi appreciation.
