This commentary contains spoilers for Keijo!!!!!!!! episode 5.

Episode 5 huh? We are close to halfway through the first season already. Time moves so fast, yet also so slow. Either way it still feels weird that this is the only series I have been keeping up with despite the fact that there are likely better ones. Either way I may do something with some of those ones but for now we have our fanservicey sports series.

The last episode ended when all the less important team members that aren’t Nozomi had their matches and won, except for Kazane who lost due to titty hypnosis. This time, however, we finally get to see Nozomi in her first real match since episode 1, and she is up against Kotone Fujisake. Nozomi is just coming off from having trained with the UTB, and she feels much lighter having ditched the suit and likely has her skills increase tenfold by hyperbolic time training logic, and Kotone’s mother was a prize queen and her sister already has a professional career. As a result, Kotone is basically very skilled by default. Also she’s thinking about yaoi all the time.

Keijo!!!!!!!! Episode 4: The Battles Begin

This commentary contains spoilers for Keijo!!!!!!!! episode 4.

Keijo is a pretty strange series to say the least, and not even due to its premise either. What is instead strange about Keijo is the way how it plays this premise straight… yet still manages to make it work. Granted it is hardly a serious series in any sense, but the fact that it isn’t a straight up comedy is what defies expectations. Keijo manages to be entertaining more so based upon the sheer amount of thought put into the fictional sport itself and how individual players approach it.

This is something that was excellently illustrated in this week’s episode. The previous episode ended on a cliffhanger taking place before the class change match. In this episode, we get to finally see some actual matches for the first time since episode 1, starting with the match between Sayaka and Rin.

Rant: Heatstreet claims Keijo is Child Porn

*Sigh* and I thought the Kotaku article was asinine.


In my first episode commentary on the anime series Keijo!!!!!!!!, I made a point about how the main factor that motivated me to watch it was Kotaku’s hit piece on it. I initially said that I didn’t even bother to read the article in question due to a sheer lack of respect. I changed that now and have read through it simply so I can confirm that yes, Heatstreet managed to make something even stupider. Oh, and also because the first thing you read in this article is a quote from Kotaku’s.

Well yay me, I am actually motivated to keep writing this series. Not only that, but I am actually excited to do so that I am trying to think of if there are any other anime this season that I would like to commentate. I was initially planning on covering Yuri on Ice, but then I realized that the Yuri in the title was not the type of yuri I was thinking of so to hell with it. Now that I think about it though, I never covered the OVA for Wolf Girl and Black Prince, and Sailor Moon Crystal has had a shit ton of episodes since the last piece I did on it, so maybe i should just finish those up.

But for now, we have Keijo!!!!!!!!, with exactly eight exclamation points. The previous episode ended with a short four on one match between Nozomi’s team and their teacher Nagisa. The events of the match ended with Nozomi managing to accidentally use a special technique against Nagisa that is, in true anime fashion, far beyond what a beginner should be capable of. Of course it still doesn’t work because Nagisa dodged it and all it did was tear off her team mate’s clothes Senran Kagura style, and ended with her hurting herself and collapsing.

So, there is a bit of an interesting story to what inspired me to watch this anime. Believe it or not, it was not just because it’s a series with sexy anime chicks that fight each other using their boobs and butts.  The actual reason is because it’s a series with sexy anime chicks that fight each other using their boobs and butts, AND it pisses off Kotaku.
