Fresh from summer training camp (you’ll want to check out the OVAs for that one) the students return to Tenbi Academy to continue their training. Things are about to get a whole lot crazier…
What did you watch and why? This was season two of Maken-ki and having finished season one and the OVAs, and still working through Ergo Proxy, I had no choice but to continue… seriously, though this series is hilarious.
What’s it about? It’s basically more of the same, but a little bit cruder, more lewder, and this time there is more of a story. I say more, but it’s still not a lot, but that doesn’t matter.
In season two, the Maken-ki team track down a lingerie thief, get transformed into cat girls, attend a manga and cosplay convention, and a whole host of other brilliant yet bizarre situations.
Again, this series has a lot of fan-service, possibly the most I’ve seen in one show… well, apart from Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid… It is stupid, but wildly entertaining. If that stuff doesn’t upset you it’s well worth the time.
When Tenbi Academy, previously an all-girl high school converts to co-ed, Takeru didn’t need much convincing to join, but he’s about to learn that girls kick ass too!
What did you watch and why? I was in the middle of watching Ergo Proxy, and while I loved that series, it is a little heavy, so to break things up I started watching a couple episodes of something a little more lighthearted and fun. Enter Maken-ki!
What’s it about? Tenbi Academy is an exclusive high school for students with the ability to control magic called Elements and wield powerful weapons called Maken. It is designed to prepare the students to use their gifts in the rest of the world once they graduate.
Takeru is just your average pervy guy. His childhood friend, Haruko was already a student when the Academy switched from all-girls to co-ed, so she was excited to be able to spend more time with her friend, but Takeru was just excited…
Before long, Haruko convinces Takeru to join the student council as a part of Maken-ki, a group that polices the battles between students as they test out their abilities. They also make sure that nothing untoward is going on within the student body… not that body… you’re as bad as Takeru!
