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.

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.

Overlord Season 3 (2018) Review

In the year 2126, a Dive Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game or DMMORPG called Yggdrasil was released. It stands out among all other DMMORPG’s due to its unusually high ability for the player to interact with the game. After an intense 12-year run the game servers are about to be shut down. Within the game exists a guild, Ainz Ooal Gown, once consisting of 41 members and credited as one of the strongest guilds in the game. Now only 4 of the members remain, the other 37 having quit the game. Of those 4 only one, an elder lich character named Momonga, continues to play as the guild leader and maintaining their headquarters, The Great Tomb of Nazarick. He invites the remaining guild members but of those only one appears and only for a short while before leaving. While saddened by this, he accepts the reality that his friends have their real lives to take care of and decides to stay logged in until the servers shut down.

When the shut-down time arrives however, Momonga finds that the game hasn’t vanished. Instead it appears as if Yggdrasil has been recreated as its own reality along with its various NPCs having been brought to life while Momonga has been trapped in the form of his game avatar, leaving him unable to use the normal player functions, such as General Message, or even to log out. With no other option, Momonga sets out to learn if anyone from ‘the real world’ is also in this new world with him. Taking on the name of Ainz Ooal Gown, a message to any other players, Momonga begins exploring the world in an attempt to figure out what has happened while searching for anyone, or anything, that could help him solve this mystery while ensuring the safety of Nazarick.
