Bikini Warriors Season 1 (2015)
ビキニ・ウォリアーズ (Bikini Woriāzu)

Synopsis

The series consists of a sequence of short stories describing the (mis-) adventures of four female adventurers in a fantasy world teeming with dangerous monsters and hostile magicians. Clad in generously cut-out, yet effective bikini-type armor, the four women must learn to overcome the hazards of their world to meet their living expenses while at the same time trying to get comfortable with the idea of exposing too much of their curvaceous physiques.

Overview

A 12-episode anime television series based on the setting aired between July 7 and September 22, 2015.

TL;DR First Impression

Bikini Warriors (ビキニ・ウォリアーズ Bikini Woriāzu) is a Japanese media franchise. It primarily consists of a series of fantasy figures created by Hobby Japan and Megahouse.

I have almost no hope this will be a good series. Perhaps the click-bait name is a good satire on the trope of typical bikini armors we see in a video game and comic? Perhaps this is a witty tongue in cheek comedy that will subvert my expectations?

This is your typical quick ecchi cash in. By the way, each episode is only about 5 minutes long. This feels more like a long advertisement to sell action figures. If so, it is brilliant.

The first thing we see are still images of busty women in bikini armors then went straight to a crotch shot. Though I must say the art and animation are quite good if not a bit generic in design. I am not just saying that because of all the jiggly and bouncy you’ll be seeing throughout this episode.

Some of the humor at the start gave me a smirk, but I expect it will be a one-trick pony that will beat this joke to the ground. Since the episode is so short, I have no idea if this anime will show any more depth than your typical ecchi fan-service? I guess I will have to grudgingly watch more for you guys. The thing I will do for my reader.

The two young girls who summoned him, the pantherian Rem and the elf Shera, attempt to use a spell to make Takuma their servant, but due to his passive “Magic Reflection” ability, the spell rebounds, and both end up with magic collars stuck on their necks, thus becoming his slaves instead.
