'So, I can't play H' is a new series that madman has brought to us from their wonderful catalogue of imports. This new series is a another nice surprise; it may look similar to say something along the lines of 'high School DXD' but thankfully its nothing like it, offering to us its own unique world and characters. To start, Ryosuke Kaga is the main protagonist of the story. He's a perverted second-year student at Momozomo Academy who uses his perverted spirit-energy to give Lisara energy. Lisara uses the Broken Sword, Gram, which used to belong to the God of War, to form a contract with Ryosuke. However, it was revealed later that Ryosuke has the other half of Gram (which was thought to be lost), thus gaining full power of the sword. He is in love with Lisara, and can only fully charge his perverted spirit energy if it is her body alone or with his "Invisible Dictionary." He lives all by himself (until Lisara moved in) while at the meantime his mother works overseas in Germany and sends him money from time to time. He considers them as "treasures" and vows to protect all girls. There are a series of hilarious circumstances involving him, showing the underlying humour of the show.
Then we have the other side of the scale, Lisara Restall she's a Grim Reaper who made a deal with Ryosuke and uses his perverted spirit for energy. She used the hilt of the Broken Sword Gram (belonging to the Restall family) to form a contract with Ryosuke. She usually wears a school uniform, but in battle, she wears a black tight robe that covers most of her body except her head, and arms. When transformed she wears a black, tight robe with a cape that extends to the floor, with an accompanying pair of matching, thigh high length boots and gloves that extend the full length of her arm. Her head is adorned by a pair of, black head-wings. The series creators has made her a sassy redhead and showing that she is not your typical 'sexualised' anime character with no purpose.
Mina Okura is Ryosuke Kaga's childhood friend and currently the human with whom Quele Sellier has a contract. Though she knows of Ryosuke's perversion, it doesn't bother her. After finding out the truth about Lisara Restall's identity, she seems okay with it and lets Lisara continue her "business" with Ryosuke. To charge her energy for Quele, she talks about Ryosuke. She made a contract with Quele so she can help Ryosuke. She has very strong feelings for Ryosuke as he protected her a lot when she was younger and showed that he really cares about girls. In the Anime it was revealed that her bust was 92 cm the same as the Idol Iria Fukumunes bust (Iria alters her breasts to this size.) Mina wears glasses over her purple eyes and has shoulder length brown hair with medium to long bangs. The glasses combined with her modest caring nature and gifted body gives off that innocent hot teacher feel that we see in a lot of teenage anime dramas. I think this is all self aware, and almost parodying the high school genre.
Iria Fukumune is Lisara's rival Grim Reaper during her school years at Grimwald, and is also a famous pop idol in the human world. Despite being 2nd in the school (Lisara being 1st, ranked top of her class), she has the biggest bust size of the main cast (92.5cm - G-cup). However, her large breasts are revealed to be a result of infusing breast pads with magic, and her actual bust size is smaller than Lisara's. She claims to be in love with Ryosuke, but it's likely that this is just a feint and can be reduced to her inclination towards competing with Lisara. With her well developed body and sense of fashion she has earned herself the title "Idol" among the men in this anime. However, is it revealed in the anime that she alters her bust to be more desired and to "out preform" her rival. The series takes a number of tests and turns but overall we though it was very enjoyable. With a strong cast of characters and an engaging plot, this one we can recommend , kudos to madman on bringing this to our Australian shores.
When we reviewed Space Dandy early last year, we knew we had discovered something very special. It had a brilliant storyline, characters and shock...was actually hilarious. Well we have been anxiously awaiting Season Two and it is finally here. This season expands the universe and we get to know the characters a bit more as they are developed and ready to go. The series picks up immediately where season one ended. As we know, there's a Dandy in every universe, and Space Dandy is about to meet them all! He just needs to pull the nearest Cosmic String, and he'll find himself face-to-face with himself. After another failed attempt from Dandy to deceive her, Scarlet suggests to him that he and his friends look for another career.
While discussing the matter, Dandy pulls a strange string sticking out from his hair that drags them to an alternate dimension where they find alternate versions of themselves that seem to be far more skilled alien hunters than they are, including Honey who seemed to idolize skilled hunter version Dandy. They are quickly attacked because they thought that the crew is undiscovered aliens, until the crew managed to get away by pulling a mysterious string on QT.
Soon after, they are pulled in another dimension where Dandy is a space trucker and Meow and QT his traveling partners. Following that, the original trio keeps pulling mysterious strings that bring them to several other dimensions, always meeting alternate versions of themselves, until one of the alternate Dandies asks him to bring him and his friends to their own dimension. The original Dandy and his friends return home, but accidentally bring all the other versions of Dandy, QT, and Meow with them.
As more alternate selves appear at the Aloha Oe, strange events start occurring in their own dimension. The alternate Dandies, QTs and Meows keep increasing since they're keep pulling the popping out cosmic strings, even the Narrator also had his alternate version of him. Dandy finally try to solve by discussing until it stopped by a gloomy Dandy and his stranger Meow and QT, Dandy decides to fix things by burning the cosmic strings that linked their dimensions, and all incarnations of Dandy, QT, and Meow returned to their own dimensions, except for the gloomy Dandy and his friends who have replaced the original crew in their own dimension. This series is a lot more complex in terms of the environment, we truly get to understand this wacky universe. and their place.
During the routine, Brown Meow says that he will be the greatest cat, until then, Meow impatiently tells other Meow that he is not a cat. In the end, the planet was once again saved. Thanks to a nifty, handheld teleportation device, Dandy and Meow get mixed up with a fishy little alien whose planet is teetering on the brink of obliteration!There
In Season two we learn more about Space Dandy Himself. in the Season 2 episode "Dandy's Day in Court, Baby", a simple DNA scan revealed that Dandy's body has no DNA whatsoever - instead, his body is made of Pyonium, an extremely rare and godlike particle. It is possibly due to his biological nature that Dandy is the only one who possesses the extremely rare ability to traverse between multiple dimensions and still retain his identity. An example to this is when he tries to fix the Aloha Oe while Dandy and Meow goof off with Mamitas. An example was when he stopped a zombified nurse from biting Dandy and being very concerned about Meow when he was sick. To conclude without giving too much away, this is a very, very entertaining season, making nerdy references to sic fi and even 80s culture. It remains solid and thankfully has not gone off the wall. Thats why we give the series an approval, its unlike anything really coming out of Japan right now.
