My #1 hype show of the Fall Season is here! Was the premiere as wonderful as I had hoped? Time for me to find out!
Sadly there is no uncensored simulcast like there was with Senran Kagura Season 2 so I’ll have to wait for the Blu-Rays to relish the show in all its glory. a minor nuisance but nothing serious.
CORRECTION: There is one! Anime is once again saved!
Before we meet our main duo let us check out the other teams.
I suppose it’s time to introduce our leading lady.
Our adorably sexy heroine Rin is a Southern belle and daughter of a legendary jet racer who, as mentioned above, passed away. Rin moved to the big city to finish high school there. She was so excited by the sights that she didn’t notice a guy stealing her bag. Rin being from the countryside meant she was athletic and had a lot of stamina. Luckily a nearby Misa helped stop the thief.
Upon meeting Misa it was clear that Rin and her would become a “Genki X Ice Princess” couple. Cool with me.
We don’t know the details yet but something was bothering Misa. It of course was related to Jet Racing.
Misa couldn’t keep up with Rin’s energy and desire to be with her at all times so she hid from her. She overheard her and a friend talk about her home, legendary mom and love of jet ski racing. Cue symbolism of their shared destiny.
Now let’s meet the last duo of the show and the (most likely) final bosses.
The “Mega Maid” (P-Cup) reminds me of Manpukumaru from Valkyrie Drive as they’re both dressed as maids, the biggest (in every sense of the word) girls of their series/games and have large appetites. Back to the plot. Rin found Misa fishing but as she enjoyed her time with the ice princess the champs appeared ordering the two move from that spot. Rin refused and the ojou-sama was like “Since you’re new here allow me to explain how things work around here. Because you refuse to move I challenge you to a race for that spot”. To Misa’s surprise Rin accepted.
A taste of things to come. Yeeeeeessssss.
I don’t know the exact rules but teams are split between a Driver and Shooter. In any case the premiere race so far is as cool and steamy as I’d hoped like the rest of the episode. The series is by the mastermind of the Senran Kagura franchise after all so expect to be blessed by many fantastic camera angles and tons of “plot” alongside the plot. I cannot wait for episode 2!
