Ecchi Moe anime being rare is no big deal because when we do get them they feel all the more special. Here we are with another one. Let us find out whether it is more than a visual blessing as we take a look at RPG Real Estate.
Alternate Title: RPG Fudousan (Japanese)
Genres: Comedy, Ecchi, Fantasy, Yuri
Themes: JRPG, Real Estate
Number of Episodes: 12
Plot Summary: Kotone is a mage who ends up working at a real estate agency in a fantasy world. Kotone helps various clients, from non-humans to a guild receptionist raising a pegasus, find a place to call home
Left to right: Fa, Kotone, Rakira and Rufuria.
The gist of the show is four cute and sexy ladies working at a real estate agency helping various clients, be they human or non-human, find a new place to live, rent apartment/s or sell their old home among other deals. The setting being a Fantasy RPG based world sometimes available homes are located in unsafe areas where our heroines need to help solve puzzles or battle enemies. Sometimes that is exactly what clients are looking for. Besides business there is also a main plot brewing on the side with more hints dropped every now and then until the big climax where big stuff goes down. Viewers may figure out the truth early but it is still fun watching things unfold. It is a cool part of fantasy stories that are not about grand journeys to save the world or stop a great evil, meaning the world building on the side. RPG RE does it well. When not working or on quests to find homes our main quartet do cute things together or share their backstories with viewers. One of them has greater importance. The clients along with other side-characters are a delightful bunch of beautiful cuties and mondo peeps. Expect lots of interesting people with their own stories.
As mentioned in the introduction this is an ecchi moe show similar to the likes of Hinako Note and Dropout Idol Fruit Tart, meaning a combination of cuteness (cute girls doing cute things) and sexiness as ladies big and smol bless cultured viewers with their magnificent bodies. This is the perfect segue to talking about the presentation. Besides blessed views for the cultured there are nice non-human designs and the animation is on point with cool magic effects and cuteness. The soundtrack fits the show while the OP and ED are cute.
Kotone is a fantastic protagonist. Always eager to help and kind to everyone. Her reactions are the best too. Lastly she has a set of mighty weapons. Some of the mightiest.
Fa is the cute one and a bundle of joy. Besides her kindness equal to that of Kotone her special ability makes her an invaluable member of the crew. Did I mention she is adorable?
Rakira is the muscle of the group though that is something she is both proud of and embarrassed by because she prefers to be treated like a cute girl than a badass Adventurer. There is a good reason why she continues to lift. She is also the voice of reason most of the time. The comedic timing on this show is pretty good along with nice jokes and even some slightly dark ones.
Rufuria is the tsundere who aspires for greatness. Though she is pretty much the leader of the group, acts serious and sometimes strict she is a big softie. Like Rakira she has a reason for aiming big.
Time for the main event. Kotone X Fa are the cute blossoming couple. Their bond grows stronger over time. Meanwhile it does not take long at all for viewers to realize Rakira and Rufuria are a couple. Almost every episode drops hints of what they do and how they spend their time together off work. They are similar to Mistress Ria and Shoko from Healer Girl but much more open about their relationship.
Overall RPG Real Estate is another wonderful ecchi moe show with a cool story building on the side. The main quartet are excellent as are the side-characters. The presentation is wonderful especially for the cultured and the yuri is lovely. Highly recommended to fans of Girls’ Club shows and sexy cuteness with sweet gayness.
