Keijo!!!!!!!! review

First thing first. You might question why this series had so many exclamation marks on its title. I have no idea. Second, I watched the whole anime while turning my brain off for maximum enjoyment, so my viewpoint is basically from a brain-dead guy who watches this anime for shit and giggles (or more accurately, for boobs and butts). Thirdly, this anime is not for everyone, so some might find it to be jarring. Forth, I might use a lot of words like boobs, breast, butts and asses, so bear with me. Now that we get that clear, let us have a review on Keijo, a national treasure of anime.

Boob battle
... and ass clashes.
Kaminashi Nozomi is an exceptional gymnast. So much so that colleges with some of the best gymnastic programs are trying to recruit her. Unfortunately for them, she has other plans. Due to her family being extremely poor, money is everything to her. That's why she wants to step into the world of "Keijo." "Keijo" is a type of gambling sport where girls stand on a small floating platform and compete against one another. The aim is to push the other contestant off of the platform into the water, but they are only allowed to use their butt or breasts to push the others off. Will Nozomi be able to compete in the intense world of "Keijo" and bring wealth and fortune for her family? (Source: MangaHelpers)

Gate of Bootylon!

The anime had a relatively simple, plain plot. It's boobs and butts the sport, with characters fighting with each others to be the best throughout the whole story. As such, one does not have to use much brain cell that is left to understand the story because it is pretty much direct and self-explanatory. Most of the time it is predictable, but that does not hinder it from being entertaining. It is just absurdly fun because it's just plain ridiculous. Who would have thought that a sport using just butt and boobs will be so intense? The name and the way the tecniques were executed are just out of this world. Meteor Hip, Vacuum But canon, Gate of Bootylon? You name it. Also, in case you noticed, there are a lot of references from popular anime where they changed it to suite the Keijo theme, which is always a plus. The more the anime progress, the more ridiculous it become, to the point that it's just plain stupid. Yet since by the time you progress that far, you might not care anymore since the brain is already in an inactive state. In the end, the story itself become rather negligible, and all the anime is worth is its fancy action and creative way of executing it. Also, I haven't read any of the manga, but I've been told that a lot of parts had been cut off just because the number of volumes the manga had. As such, I can't really make any comparison or elaborate much on that.

I swear I got a lot more screencap of the techniques executions. It's pretty much a treasure trove.
As for the characters, Keijo features a huge array of cast with voluptuous, fit body shape of all kind. The main character, Kaminashi Nozomi is your generic "I will become the best and very rich" type who speak with a dialect, which is a nice touch. There aren't really other noteworthy traits from her but at the same time she is not bad character wise. Her other friend, Miyata Sayaka is more level-headed character with a bust complex. She is given enough development and decent enough to watch. There is also Aoba Kazane who is a more timid, smart girl and your usual klutz Toyoguchi Non with soft, squishy part, where all of them share the same room altogether. All the other characters are there just to support the main casts, and aren't given enough development which is understandable given how many the characters were in the anime and having to put all of them in a single cour.

Keijo!!!!!!!! have a rather decent animation and art, which makes up for the poor storyline. The usage of sharp, flat colours with defined outline makes it pleasant to watch. All the action scene are very fluid and fun to watch as a whole.The damage inflicted each time the hit connects feels painful, and the way the body move is smooth and flow wonderfully. The usage of cinematic camera, as well as well placed camera is praiseworthy. The studio knows its priority, and that's always a good thing. The music is average to say the most. Most of the ost used fits well with the scene, while the OP and ED is fun to watch and listen to.

Overall, Keijo!!!!!!!! is a really fun and enjoyable anime to watch, given that you denies all the logic and reason when watching it. It is a perfect anime for boobs and asses connoisseur who want to see what such magnificent body parts could achieve more. It is not an anime for everyone tho, people who despise fanservice might hate it to the core, dissing it for its ridiculous, poor story and absurd theme. But in the end of the day, it is a fanservice anime, and I can say it does its job well done.
