Editorial Reviews

We all know who protects Metropolis and Gotham, but when Akihabara, the geek nexus of Tokyo, is threatened by alien Cyber Fairies, it will take more than just an average superhero to defend the world's single largest concentration of anime fans, model kits and maid cafes... Wait, there's the answer! Enter Akiballion: maid caf+-¬ hostesses by day who don super-powered electro-brain battlesuits to combat the ultra-grotesque monsters sent forth by the villainous Fairie Queen! Can these three lovely young ladies handle the stress, the fighting and the responsibility of being Japan's last line of defense against alien invasion?

The Sexy Sentai cyber-maidens of Akihabara, defender of justice and dignity!

For fans of Japanese sentai/tokusatsu shows such as "Power Rangers" or the many Japanese superhero "ranger" based shows that have aired in Japan, Japan has begun exploring the concept of using gravure models donning these superhero uniforms.

In this case, "Akiballion Battlemaids of Akihabara!" was released in Japan back in 2008 as a DVD Pay-Per-View series from Zen Pictures (a company that specializes in bringing gravure bikini models and have them in Power Ranger-esque outfits or as some super heroine or anti-hero). In Japan, this DVD/PPV was only available where Japanese consumers had to pay for a DVD and get the first episode for free (plus the making of the episode) and then pay about $5 extra to access one of the next four episodes and unlock the episode on the DVD for two weeks. Fortunately, in the US, for those interested in the series can watch all episodes on a DVD courtesy of Switchblade Pictures.

"Akiballion Battlemaids of Akihabara!" takes Japan's hottest gravure idols (bikini/lingerie models) and put them in a traditional sentai story with their battlemaid outfits, have them fight monsters and a little fan service (via upskirt pantie shots) for their fans.

The story of "Akiballion Battlemaids of Akihabara!" revolve around three young women who have been chosen by the Cyber God to take on monsters from the Cyber World. The three are given power to become "Akiballion" and granted fighting powers and a sword to take on the Cyber Fairies. Meanwhile, the Fairy Queen has her warrior known as Troll, look for creepy people to become Cyber Fairies and destroy Akiballion.

A lot of the cosplay "fan" based videos are usually poorly made, bad quality, and limited budget. Some cases, they try to use sex or perverse settings to get the desired audience.

This is not the case with this video. This DVD contains 5 episodes. The story line is actually pretty good and they actually did a fairly good job with getting the audience attention. The quality of the video is really good compared to some of the other cosplay videos I have seen. The special effects they used is actually well done, about the same style as "Power Rangers". The action sequence is a bit dragged out, the scene and script are a bit sluggish, but it did keep me interested. Although there are some "suggestive" scenes, it's tasteful rather than perverse. Ideally, this is a kind of "Power Ranger" video, only with females. My only complaint is that there are a few moments when it drags out a bit... (Scenes of the city, torture scenes, introduction to each episode is also a bit dragged out) Each episode is about 40 minutes long and each episode has a new monster.

Overall, I was rather surprised how good this is. I was half expecting this to be a bit perverse, but it was actually very respectful. I will not give away the story line as that would really spoil the whole DVD for you. I do recommend this to anyone who is into cosplay, or just enjoys a good story.
