Modern Mermaids or Nymphs
5 December 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The human myths and legends have included many women of extreme beauty and some with quite voracious sexual appetite. This Japan anime focuses on large-breasted free-spirited females who are playing a game to which we discover the rules along with the clueless main male character, Minato, who is plunged in a world where beautiful women fight for his affections and for their lives. The sarcastic humour is quite on point and the gratuitous nudity in every other scene flows as naturally as large breasts bouncing up and down. The constant fan service, sexiness and arousal however is not the only reason worth watching this whimsical fairy-tale. As characters are presented with various complex backstories and the shroud of mystery is slowly revealed, we find endearing personalities, fun situations, cool fights and a story that keeps you as captivated as the big bare or barely-bare breasts all around. Minato gets a nose bled every time he sees breasts, but we get far from nosebleed seats, as we are right there in the action following the moves blow for blow. Tight shirts, short skirts, panties and flirts are all part of the game and the world of Sekirei. If a Sekirei is grabbing a breast or two (hers or another's) or kissing an Ashikabi or a Japanese version of Ashanti, all the better. There is no missed opportunity for sexual reference, action, comedy and lots of fun.

I was annoyed with the sometimes childish drawings superimposed or replacing scenes to often show fantastic elements, but they later seem to blend in the story and add humour or thought/emotion like a manga/comic book, once you get used to it. Other than that, simply sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

My conclusion is then that Sekireis are a new figment of modern imagination to represent a breed of idealized brave and breasted woman who love her man and is ready to fight for him and defend him. The series deserves distinction for creating this fictional world as much as Disney and the Danish author for the Little Mermaid. It is about time we update the succulent stories of the five types of Greek nymphs, the apsaras of Hindu and Buddhist mythology and the celestial nymphs of Sigiriya with the 108 Sekireis! Let's enjoy the maiden voyage of these damsels while we are in distress.

All in all, like Minato is having, the series is a harmless harem of fun.
