Keijo!!!!!!!! – Season One

Keijo is the fastest growing professional sport in Japan. Popular for its gambling potential and exhilarating matches. The match takes place on a floating island, referred to as Land, in large water-filled stadiums. Swimsuit-clad competitors fight to incapacitate their opponents or knock them off the Land, but they can only do so using their breasts or buttocks.

Nozomi has dreams of becoming the richest Keijo player in history and her journey there starts now. She has just been accepted into a prestigious Keijo academy and is eager to prove she belongs. Now the hard work begins.

The girls are split into teams for their training. Regular sparing matches keep them honest and assess their abilities. Nozomi is forced to wear a special suit to increase her core strength when she unleashes an unstoppable move by accident. They need to get in top shape because the illustrious East-West War is approaching, where the two top academies fight for superiority.

Now, before you say anything, I had no idea what I was getting into when I started this series. From the screen grab, I thought it was about swimming. It’s so not about swimming. It’s so much better than I ever imagined.

This series knows what it has and it uses it to its full potential, boobs and bums. It also manages to do it in such a way that it is hilarious. The battles are amazing, the moves are fantastic, and you can’t help but cheer when they win.

I’m sure some will frown on this from the off, but it has an engaging story. Nozomi is confident, but you can get behind her because she tries harder than anyone, she supports her friends, and she is a better sport than a lot of people I’ve played sports with.

This is easily one of the funniest animes I’ve ever seen. I will definitely watch it again at some point, and hopefully, they’ll make a second season. If not, I will have to get the manga. It really is that good. It’s like watching sumo wrestling through powerful beer goggles.
