I’m not the biggest Ecchi fan (not that I mind), but Ishuzoku Reviewers caught my interest from the beginning.
It’s an anime adaptation about Stunk (an adventurer) who travels to brothels and “reviews” his experience with every species of women he has “fun” with.
This is a trailer in case you want an idea of what to expect.
More than anything else – the MC loves Elf girls more than the average character in Ishuzoku Reviewers.
Ishuzoku Reviewers Episode 1 (screenshots)
This small scene is telling you what to expect from this anime, basically. And why the girls work at brothels and how it works under the law within the anime’s system.
Certain bits are censored as you can tell.
Stunk – one of the main characters (the adventurer) walks out of a brothel with an elf girl. And Zel, the other character goes back and forth with Stunk about it.
It’s comical in its own way, in spite of the extreme themes layered on top of it.
The argument between Stunk and Zel continues as they babble on about the qualities of an elf girl and what not.
They weren’t f*cking around when they said “this is for mature audiences” in the first screenshot.
At some point – Stunk and Zel end up out in the woods. And save a fallen angel who’s lost her powers (temporarily).
In exchange for being helpful, Stunk and Zel think about Heaven and what the women might be like.
I haven’t read the Manga but the author gives no F’s and I love it.
It’s daring and nothing like anything you’ll see on TV in general.
“I’m merely collecting information to aid me when the promised time comes.”
A bunch of adventurers are looking at the bulletin board for brothels.
Stunk reviews brothels and throws it on the board, along with other adventurers. And these people are reading the reviews while having a bit of banter.
And later into the first episode – we see a cat girl that leads to this conversation between Stunk and Zel, the main characters in Ishuzoku Reviewers.
I haven’t added ALL the screenshots but one thing I’ll say: the animation quality is nice.
The art style is pretty fresh as well and none of the scenes are dull or boring to look at.
And even though the Ecchi themes are strong (it’s about brothels after all) the comedy is still legit. Episode 1 didn’t blow me away but it’s worth watching.
In a nutshell:
- NICE animation.
- Unique themes never explored before in anime.
- Comical in its own way.
- Eye candy.
- And it doesn’t feel trashy.
The outrage police and SJW’s on Twitter won’t be happy (the loud minority). But F’it.
I’d recommend Ishuzoku Reviewers based on the first episode if Ecchi is your thing.
Or you wanna try something new and the mature themes have got you curious.
