Conception – First Impressions (Episodes 1-4)

What’s it about? Mahiru asks Itsuki to meet her on the roof of their high school. She has some big news to confide in him. After revealing that she’s pregnant and still a virgin, they are magically transported to a parallel world. There, they learn that the only way to get back home is for Itsuki to defeat a dungeon boss with the help of Star Children that he will have to make with twelve Star Maidens and Mahiru is one of them…

What are your first impressions? This has to be the stupidest anime I’ve ever seen, and I watch a lot of trash. That said, I thought the start of the second episode was pretty funny where they revealed to Itsuki and Mahiru that you don’t actually have to have sex with the maiden to create a Star Child. Massive cock block for Itsuki there and it made me laugh. The thing is it keeps getting worse and worse, which ironically is making it funnier, in a this is so bad it’s good, but it’s not good!

Favourite character so far? For sheer comedy value, it has to be Mana, the horny flying red panda that is guiding Itsuki. And rereading that sentence is further proof of just how ridiculously stupid this series is. I have absolutely no hope that this will get any better, which is probably for the best. I’m just going to focus on laughing at how insane it is.

Who do you want to see more of? Just go for broke already and give us more Mana than we could possibly cope with. I’m sure Mana will be preparing something suitably distasteful for the finale, such as a Star Maiden orgy in an attempt to birth an army of Star Children. Seriously, I can’t stress just how utterly bonkers this series is.

Are you going to continue watching? At the moment this series is just above Radiant on my order of priorities, but only because it’s good to laugh at. Out of sheer morbid curiosity, I will probably force myself to watch the end, because something is going to happen. Something so stupidly brilliant that I will forgive… no, forgive is the wrong word… tolerate the series. That’s better. It’s a low ceiling I know, but it can’t get much worse… can it?


  1. The art style is similar to Re:Zero though

    • Yeah, the artwork is good. I just can’t help but wander if they couldn’t have come up with a better story. Feels like they didn’t even try.
