Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari - 06Dagmyer discovers he can no longer work a Seikijin and is frustrated by this. Meanwhile, Kenshi learns that Ceres is going on summer vacation while Lashara informs Chiaia that she has no intentions of going anywhere for summer vacation. However, when Flora contacts Lashara, she threatens to expose an embarrassing photo of Lashara, forcing Lashara to attend. Further, Flora wants to meet Kenshi no matter what and has invited Lithia, Aura, Wahanly, and Dagmyer.

Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari - 06On the flying yacht heading to the resort, Kenshi is all excited by Lashara is rather annoyed by everything. Their ship docks with a string of similar specially designed yachts and Kenshi sees Ceres on one of the ships. So, he decides to pay him a visit and finds him in a storeroom along with a girl. He and the girl talk with another girl named Cordine, who’s made arrangements to get Ceres’s girl, Hazuki, past Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari - 06the gate. Kenshi has to hide when Cordine passes by but is revealed to Ceres and Hazuki by the large number of koro that flock to him. Ceres explains that his being a Seikishi and not of the nobility is rare, but it means his relationship with Hazuki is forbidden. Thus, Kenshi promises not to reveal his secret.

Maria and Lashara are in for a shock when they approach Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari - 06the point where they are to pick up Flora and see that Maria’s mother has tons of giant banners of her in a sexy costume as well as numerous balloons with her face on them to hold up the banners. Flora shows them to where they will stay and Kenshi rightly guesses that the welcoming ceremony will be a pillow fight with a competition to pull the sash from another person’s robe. The winner will get to Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari - 06marry the one they want as well as score a cash prize. Kenshi wants the money to attempt to get back to his home on Earth. In the end, it comes down to him and Flora, so Flora gives Kenshi the win to Maria and Lashara’s annoyance.

As a group of bandits plan their move to obtain Ceres and Dagmyer, Maria and Lashara plan revenge on Flora by Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari - 06using Kenshi in massage mode, but that backfires on them leaving them exhausted the following morning. Kenshi is out and about and encounters Hazuki being chased by some bandits. He takes them out and races back to his lodgings at the resort. However, the bandits are led by a former Seikishi, who has stolen a Sekijin and the resorts automatic defenses are soon breached. The girls find themselves captured by a bandit on a hover bike until Kenshi crashes in and takes the bandit out.

Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari - 06Upon learning what the bandits are up to, Chiaia and Yukine are dispatched to save Dagmyer, not knowing that he is bargaining with the bandits. Indeed, Dagmyer sleeps with the female leader of the bandits for the purposes of helping her produce a Seikishi child. Kenshi rescues Flora, who’s enjoying it way too much. He then figures out where the hostages are taken before helping rescue Ceres and Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari - 06Dagmyer. Kenshi also proves that Wahanly’s mecha can take on a Seikijin and win. Arrangements are made so that Hazuki and Ceres can be “forgotten” and thus spend time together when that normally would not be allowed. However, unbeknownst to the rescuers, they’ve also taken in some bandits who were hidden in the containers that held the hostages.

Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari - 06

Thoughts/Review:

Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari - 06So, we get WAY too much ecchi content for my tastes (because Kajishima-sensei loves his ecchi) but we also get some interesting plot stuff. I won’t spend much time on the ecchi stuff, but I will say that this OVA series with its 45-minute episodes and 13-episodes to play with give Kajishima-sensei the sandbox with which he can have his juvenile sexual/ecchi content and still have room to have some actual story elements.

Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari - 06So, Dagmyer can no longer pilot a Seikijin, eh? Now, he is growing his little army by picking up some mercenaries. Not only that, but he gets to have sex too in order that this bandit group’s leader might have a child who can become a Seikishi to pilot a Seikijin. Now, he wants to smuggle some bandits into the campus (or so I’d guess). I do wonder why no one noticed them though.

Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari - 06While everyone fawns over Kenshi, I am glad to see that there are girls not fawning over him. Hazuki was clearly understandable in this regard and her romance with Ceres is rather sweet. I wonder if she’ll show up down the road.

While Dagmyer may be scum, I do like that Chiaia carries a torch for him, mainly because she’s not fawning over Kenshi. While it may be amusing to have so many girls wanting Kenshi, it becomes a bit much at times, especially this episode and Maria’s mother Flora.

Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari - 06Speaking of Maria and her mother, I rather enjoyed how Lashara and Maria put aside their rivalry to oppose Flora, especially since Flora is not acting as the queen of her country nor as a mother but rather as a horny woman with a fetish for young boys. *_* OK, it was funny how one of Maria and Lashara’s plans backfired. Maria and Lashara working together reminded me somewhat of Ryoko and Aeka working together for a common goal. I suspect that before all is said and done, Maria and Lashara will be close allies.

Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari - 06Kenshi’s abilities as a fighter were quite impressive. I do believe that he has been enhanced somehow, possibly from a Royal tree (like Funaho-ki). However, if it wasn’t clear before, it is really clear how well he’s been trained. Well, if he spent any time at Tenchi’s place, I expect he would be, not only by Katsuhito, but Tenchi and the girls as well. Considering that stories often have the hero beaten down and having to overcome that, I wonder how powerful an opponent would have to be to take Kenshi down.

Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari - 06Speaking of “clear,” it seems pretty obvious that Wahanly’s mecha will play some role by the end of the series since Kenshi was able to use it to temporarily cripple a Seikijin.

So in the end, there was WAY too much ecchi fanservice in this episode, but there was some nice comedy and some good action as well.

    Dagmyer didn’t lose his ability to pilot normal Seikijins but he isn’t strong enough for ancient Seikijin. Ancient mecha is really special case and it looks like only Doll has enough power and ability to pilot it which annoys Dagmyer to no end. I really hate him. That guy is such an bastard. He is so full of himself, never accepts defeat and hates people more talented than himself. Only reason he wanted Kenichi dead was because he was jealous of Kenichis talent and not because of what he said to him.

    For some reason, I hadn’t realized there were two types of Seikijin.

    I think it was just the sacred, prophecied black Seikijin that Dagmyer was unable to pilot. It occured to me in this episode that the ecchi superharem lusting after Kenshi is made even more annoying because he is just a simple-minded 15 year old whose powers are being used to prop up a monarchy and fight political battles he doesn’t in any way understand. Perhaps Dagmyer understands the world they are in and therefore takes a different, more justified position.

    Yes, Kenshi’s age makes Flora’s interest particularly disturbing. Hopefully she’s only curious because she wants to keep an eye on her daughter. But if she’s interested for other reasons…

    Of course, Mexiah’s also quite a bit older than Kenshi.

    And talking of disturbing… While not clarified in the summary, the reason that Lashara, Maria, and Yukine didn’t get any sleep during the night is because they were all busy looking for the eye bleach and brain scrubbers. There are some things that no daughter should ever be forced to watch her mother do… And remember what sort of effect Kenshi’s massages had on the girls back in episode 3.

    The red head in this episode might be the red head in the column of naked women. The hair doesn’t look quite right, imo, but I’ve yet to see another possible candidate.

    To me the interesting thing about the ecchi pillow fight is that Kenshi seemed to know the details of the “ceremony”, right down to what you were supposed to say to someone as you stole the belt that was keeping their clothes together. Presumeably this is another “contribution” to society by someone from Earth (which is why Kenshi was familiar with it), although I don’t know what the source of it would be.

    Aura’s personality shift was interesting. What’s up with that?

  5. AstroNerdBoy says:

    I forgot to mention Aura. That little interlude was a puzzler to be sure, but I figured it is some Japanese joke that won’t go over well in the U.S.

    As to the “ceremony,” the pillow fights and pulling off of one’s obi is a long tradition in Japanese manga and anime. The phrases Kenshi mentioned were new to me though.

  6. junior says:

    Or in other words, Kenshi learned about the ceremony from has Dad’s manga collection?

    :p

    Don’t be so quick to casually dismiss Aura’s personality shift. While she’s mostly been side-lined since the end of episode 1 (I think her three most important post episode 1 appearences so far were to introduce Lapis, introduce Lithia, and give Kenshi a chance to compete in the episode 5 “game”), I suspect that we’re going to be seeing a lot more of her. She indicated waaaaaaaaay back in episode 3 that the time of day affected her and now Kajishima is bringing it back up.

    I won’t say much more, and of course I don’t know how things turn out in the end, but she gets a (imo) very cute but short scene with Kenshi in the next episode.

    Finally, I could be mistaken but I think we got a little insight in this episode into what Dagmyer’s been preaching to his “converted”. Back in episode 5, a few male seikishi were introduced to Dagmyer as “converts” to his “philosophy”, and we’ve seen that Dagmyer’s been collecting male seikishi. In this episode, we’re clearly shown that the bandits have a great deal of contempt for the “pampered” male seikishi. We’ve also seen that male seikishi are treated somewhat like very high-value pets/breeding stock, and it’s not hard to see the male seikishi resenting this. It’s possible that Dagmyer is attracting his followers by claiming that he wants to change the way that male seikishi are treated in the social order.

    But we won’t know if this is the case until later on.

    I really want FUNimation to license this anime. I wasn’t that impressed with OVA 3 but I really like Isekai.

  8. Anonymous says:

    *LOL* Very true. ^_^

    Interesting thoughts on Dagmyer. I hadn’t considered this to potentially be his angle.

  10. evgenidb says:

    @Astro, do you have any news from Hakubi’s channel?

  11. junior says:

    Episode 7’s out.

  12. AstroNerdBoy says:

    I’m going to try to get it watched soon — tomorrow morning likely.
