Anime Spotlight #52



Personally, I’m quite looking forward to watching Girly Air Force and Grimm’s Notes, among a couple others, later on this month, as well as Azur Lane later on this year; in the meantime, though, I still have some fully-released Anime to go through….

Including this one:

Spring Anime 2017: Busou Shoujo Machiavellism - The ...
Beware…the stupid laughing sounds from some of these girls.

Armed Girls Machiavellism (Busou Shoujo Machiavellism) reminded me a bit of Kill la Kill and Shimoneta — dystopian school setting, and a fearless freedom-loving hero (a guy this time) standing alone against them.

The guy in question, Fudo Nomura — emphasis on the “No” — is like the MGTOW man of Anime; he values freedom of personal choice, and refuses to let agents of tyranny stand in his way of fulfilling such values.

For this show, the “tyranny” is the female student population in general; every girl at the “Coexistence School” is armed (hence “Busou Shoujo”), so that they can discipline the unruly newcomers (almost always boys) — usually, this results in the pussy-whipped boys dressing up like girls.

Machiavellism, of course, derives from Niccolo Machiavelli, who wrote “The Prince” as a treatise on how a dictator can effectively run a dictatorship over his nation and people while minimizing the chance of his being overthrown by said people.

Nomura, though, shows how to deal with such dictatorships — just say “NO”!  Also, it’ll help to know some good martial arts techniques to back up that “no.”

Just as in real life, Nomura proves that the best way for a guy to build a harem is to be indominable in will as well as unwavering in his values; the girls are bound to act up on him, but deep down they’re sure gonna want him badly.

However, if it’s actual love you’re looking for then find some other Anime….



Anime Spotlight #45

It’s all your favourite Harem cliches in one Anime!

Infinite Stratos Season 2 Review | WWHCurrent Community

Infinite Stratos pretty-much has it all.  It’s a Harem Anime, foremost, since the IS units the Anime is named after are, with only one glaring exception, only able to be piloted by girls.  The IS units are mechas, so there’s that one checked off too.  Also, check on the prim know-it-all British transfer and the overly by-the-books German transfer.  Check off the girl-pretending-to-be-a-boy, the Tsundere, and Harem-boy’s protective older sister that got him into all this mess.  Of course, no Anime like this one would be complete without the occasional Anime fall scenes (that defy human anatomy) as well as beach episode and that one episode where all the girls have to chase after the boy in a secret competition.  Finally, the boy himself is squeamish, clueless to how girls work, average in terms of attractiveness, but always throws himself in front of dangers for them without hesitation.

That’s basically the jist of this show.  Did I miss anything?

Can’t believe they made two seasons of this show….


Anime Spotlight #32

A hot-head, self-proclaimed goddess, and painfully meek girl walk into…a guy with actual spine.

Kanata Age does the superhero-sacrifice thing, but makes it back alive (somehow) only to be called a traitor by all the other “Sky Wizards” at Mistigon.  What else could go wrong?

How about:  Forced to teach Fire Team E601, the Academy’s worst-performing team ever!

>Misora Whitale — E601’s leader, epic tsundere, and always on the shortest fuse.  No wonder she has red hair!

>Rico Flamel — The self-proclaimed goddess, who’s in love with herself and refuses to do anything because she’s “too good” for the routines of “mere mortals.”

>Lecty Eisenach — The shyest, most introverted, least confident young girl alive, who hails from a wealthy, well-known family and is meant to carry on her family’s unique fighting style (if only she were sure of herself to do so).

Kanata, though, is my favourite of them all in this Anime.  He could give Arata from Trinity Seven a run for his money, the way he is with girls, and everything he does is, ultimately, for a well-thought out purpose.  It is for that reason that, I feel, only he had what it took to make E601 great; great enough even to win the Sky Wizards Tournament.

Well worth a watch!
