Asobi ni Ikuyo - Season 1 - Episode 2 - Review: "I Came To Play"

Picking up from the first episode, we see the various ladies and groups in action. It appears that Ms. Itokazu's biggest problem with Elis is that instead of some cliched alien "that a Trekkie would accept," Elis turns out to be nothing more than a "cosplayer." This ruins the "glorious contact" that her group is interested in seeing. Thus, lots of guys with guns are gathering, to remove this first encounter with an extra-terrestrial. Manami, on the other hand, simply continues to watch from her house, recording Elis and Kio's boring exposition dialogue, which is framed by fanservice of Elis, as well as her natural ability to make part of the screen shine as if the sun were directly hitting it, even in the dark of night. Manami consults with her handler, a woman code-named "Jack." Back in the fluff part of the show, Elis discusses how she can repay Kio for all of his help, but she has no currency to offer, so she offers her body, as she has apparently read that is how she can pay her debt to Kio...read from the magazines he keeps under his bed. We know what kind of magazines teenage boys keep under their bed. Kio, of course, being a wuss, as is standard in this type of show, responds by saying those magazines are just fiction and there is no need for Elis to repay him for his kindness with her body. Well, that was expected, of course. Read More Click Me!

Asobi ni Ikuyo - Season 1 - Episode 1 - Review: "A Cat Falls to Earth"

Wait a moment here, I thought we were getting alien catgirls? This whole entire opening scene looks like something from Full Metal Panic, and I'm not talking about the comedy school bits. We have shadowy organizations, and super black-ops outfits talking about stuff that I have no idea about, in the background a TV broadcast says that there's some kind of strange message that has been broadcast to the Earth, a simple single phrase: "Let's Play!" In a stormy sea, a naval vessel of some sort is tracking a small and suspicious boat. Drug runners? Illegal arms merchants? Pirates? We have no idea. But they are heavily armed, and even start firing rockets at the naval vessel. At which point the little girl who looked like she was miles away, watching everything by satellite uplink gets into what can only be described as a high-tech exoskeleton mecha suit, suddenly emerges from out of the naval vessel, and then gives a complete beat down on the terrorists? criminals? who are in the suspicious boat. As it turns out, there are both illegal weapons and drugs on the boat, so perhaps we have a little of both here, criminals and terrorists. Where are my cute alien catgirls? Read More Click Me!
