Maken-ki!

Takeru enrolled in Tenbi Academy because the girl-to-guy ratio is, like, 3 girls for every guy. But this bevy of bombshells is actually a school where teens beef up their combat skills using a magic power thingy called a Maken. Redheads with wicked high kicks, shocking blonde bullies, and aggressive brunettes are EVERYWHERE. And every time there’s a brawl, their clothes tend to disintegrate. Distracted by all the bouncy brawlers, Takeru has a hard time concentrating on his training. Things get sticky when the hornball can’t figure out how to use his Maken. If he doesn’t find his mojo quick, he’ll be dumped by the school of his dreams—or destroyed by an attacker who’s after his magic power thingy!

Score 5/10

Story Maken-Ki isn't all that original. It relies very heavily on all of the cliches we're all tired of seeing beaten to death in shounen romantic comedies. Among the few redeeming qualities the story has are the action and the ecchi comedy. There are plenty of cool fight scenes to be had here, as well as hilarious pervert antics, if you're willing to overlook the laziness of the rest of the story. I can't... read more

I feel like I missed some episodes where a lot of information is given, where the system of powers is explained and where more battles are fought. The story is nicely conceived (sadly, it's not original, I think), but how it turned out is disappointing. The animation and the sound are both well done, I think, but I am not so satisfied with the main character. It seems like every few episodes, he changes his... read more
