Maken-Ki!

Now this is more for me, funny ecchi animes where the characters have special abilities. The first episode immediately ended with a cliffhanger, making me want to watch the second episode as soon as possible.

The artwork was pretty decent, for some reason I got this S-cry-ed flashback when I saw some of the abilities that those girls had. Especially Inaho’s Kushihachi’s weapon, it looks very much like Kazuma’s Alter in S-cry-ed.

I’m having some doubts about the story though, it doesn’t seem all that unique. That and I can see several graphic similarities between this anime and several others. There’s Inah’s weapon, the mark on Takeru’s left chest that looks a lot like Orochimaru’s curse mark in Naruto and the list goes on. Ohhh~ kami-sama let me be wrong, please!

Plot Summary: Takeru Ohyama, a young normal yet perverted minded guy, got accepted and now goes to a school that, unknown to him, was where combat and magic is used. On the first day, he meets again after three years: Haruko Amaya, his childhood friend, Inaho Kushiya, a girl who says she’s his fiance, and Kodama Himegami, a blonde who wants to kill him. Finding out that there are many girls there that just don’t like him, he is told that everyone there uses a special magic ability while using an item or weapon called a Maken. Later, he finds that no Maken is acceptable for him and doesn’t know what to do, since in this school the students get into duels that showcase their magic and combat power, to which he seemingly has none.
