Minato had no luck with the ladies until the day a well-rounded warrior babe named Musubi fell into his life and crushed his face with her ginormous cleavage. Hunted by a stunning pair of twin sisters, Musubi was searching for the right guy to give her a squeeze and unlock the hidden powers lurking beneath her ample assets. Minato fit the bill, and now he’s caught in the middle of a supernatural slugfest where voluptuous vixens take turns beating each others’ clothes off! Only one of these bodacious brawlers will come out on top, but the unbridled excitement of watching them go at it makes this utterly-fulfilling series the breast action-harem anime of all time!

Our hero, Minato, is the typical nice shy guy, so much so he never has much chances with the ladies, but that changes when out of the sky a bouncy, beautiful girl literally falls on him, smothering him with her chest. She is on the run from a twin set of sisters who can shoot lightning from their hands, but when the two kiss Musubi gains special power to drive off the assialants. This is just the beginning as Minato learns of a dark orginization who is trying to determine the next step of human evolution and using these powerful warriors called Sekirei's to choose it, with the winning Sekirei and master getting whatever wish they desire. As the two begin their journey, they are joined by other bouncy ladies all wanting Minato to turn on their "special" desires. Can Minato survive dinner, let alone the tournament?
As I said, this series is full of everything, but definately not child friendly (HIgh nudity and fan service). But give it a shot if you are a fan if Ikki Tousen or looking for something a little different in you anime titles.
edit: this is only season one, as two came in a 2 pack. the reason is if you look at the extras and there is only the OVA Ku's shopping day (which is adorable as Ku is my favorite character).
For the uninitiated, Sekirei revolves around a battle royale of sorts, centering around 108 super-soldiers fighting for ultimate supremacy. There's more on the line than just bragging rights, though: The winner of the entire tournament, along with their Ashikabi (contract partner), will gain entrance into heaven, where they can stay for all eternity. The rest... will die in the process.
The premise seems tired and cliched at first: voluptuous ladies fighting amongst themselves for the affection of a particular male. However, this series gives the cliche some welcome twists. An Ashikabi does not have to stick with just the one Sekirei that he "wings" (in this series, "winging" refers to the Ashikabi unlocking the Sekirei's true powers. How is this done? How else? A kiss.) Rather, one Ashikabi can "wing" multiple Sekirei, forming a battle harem of sorts. You can see that coming from a mile away, and the protagonist Minato does indeed start building up his harem in a hurry.
In spite of the harem cliches obviously present, the series excels in other areas. The combat scenes are fast-paced and always pleasing. The fan-service is definitely there, though not in the amount present in anime like Green Green et. al; in other words, there's enough to please, but not enough to turn a majority of anime viewers off from it. Another thing I liked about the series, is that the creators didn't fall back on the old trope of having -all- of the fighters be female; at least one of the Sekirei- Homura- is a full-blooded male, which adds some more well-needed variety to the series.Read more ›
That main draw obviously being fan service, as there is lots of it. But the action is actually pretty good. This series isn't terribly original, but it is very entertaining to watch. genre wise it is very comparable to high school of the dead. The animation isnt the highest youll see. But it is better than the average anime, with some well choreographed fights and vibrant colors. I havent seen what it looks like on blu-ray, but I assume it looks much like season 2, which is a good thing.
bottom line this is an anime that doesn't try to break new grounds in it genre, but is directed in such a way where it succeeds in being a very entertaining watch. In a time where we are flooded with cliche harem anime, this series pulls it off and dose it quite well.
Minato Sahashi comes from the "Love Hina" vein of anime protagonists: young, decently attractive, and a total academic failure. Much like shows of that type, a bevy of beautiful women start crowding around him, most notably the busty and powerful Musubi, who is the show's charming, unique love interest. But this show eschews the typical perverted high jinks, outside of some bath scenes and "boy walks in on girl changing" moments, for an intriguing, fight-oriented plot. See, Musubi is what is known as a Sekirei, which are powerful superhuman beings capable of incredible feats. In order to fully unleash her power, however, she needs what is known as Ashikabi, which is a handler of sorts that a Sekirei forms a spiritual bond with. How is the bond formed? Why, with kissing, of course!
All silliness aside, this concept is surprisingly pliable. The Sekirei are competing in a government game to see which one is the strongest, and thus, many of the Sekirei are desperately seeking Ashikabi to boost their power.Read more ›
