Joshikousei – breaking new ground in fanservice anime

June 24, 2006

On anti-recommendation (i.e. people begging me not to watch it) and on purchase and perusal of this month’s Megami magazine, I decided to download the LIME anime subs of Joshikousei ~Girls high~. Basically, in a word, I am impressed ^_^. Joshikousei is not only a shamelessly fanservice show, it also deals with aspects of fanservice that most anime companies would not touch with a 30 foot barge pole outside of hentai. And so appropriately, this post will not be a review post, I will merely be going over the many fetishes that Joshikousei covers in just its first 2 episodes.

Not only are there panty shots and surprise breast fondling galore, but within the first two episodes alone, we get naked aprons, oneesama bondage sex, girls on toilets, pubic hair (shock horror! ^_^), menstruation, and something even unheard of in harem anime – falling over into someone and ending up in a 69. Believe me, if you went around trying that in real life, chances of that happening are pretty much the same as all the women in the world suddenly deciding that they are gay and having a rampant orgy in my front room. Not that I have tried, obviously O_O.

Anyway, here is a list of some of the fetishes covered by Joshikousei ~Girls High~

Yuri rape

Sideboob

Naked apron

Marilyn Monroe impressions

Bondage

Losing virginities

Girls on the toilet

Surprise breast fondling

Unexpected yuri-sex

Menstruation

Pubic hair (ouchie, plucking pubic hair? No wonder anime girls are so smooth down below O_o)

Game references (well, it makes gamers happy “down there”, so technically its a fetish ^_^;)

In homage to this piece of fanservice art that has been bestowed upon me, I felt a need to make a panty shot collage from the first episode. In fact, there are twenty one distinct pantyshots in episode 1, most of which are in the first 10 minutes (three of them are in the unexpected sex collage above). Impressive.

In short, Joshikousei is hilarious, that is, if you like jokes like “Oh noes, I accidentally fell down the stairs and received cunnilingus from my classmate” or “Ahh! my urine pot is overflowing!”

Pure genius

    Look beyond the first 2 episodes and you’ll see a slice of life drama anime from girls’ POV. The fanservice dries up after the initial couple of episodes.

    I actually think it’s pretty good, or maybe because we have such low expectations.

    Well, the third episode almost has loli rape ^_^. I suppose the initial shock factor keeps you watching and then the storyline keeps you going after.

    The voices remind me a lot of Excel Saga, for some reason…

    Oh, and a mangaka of this all is a woman.

    Hey,

    Glad the Cam has brought you back to senses. Can’t believe has been a year. To be honest feel slightly out of place here (this site!) but think it’s great that you’re doing it and you write about it well and with such enthusiasm that it is interesting for me to read even though I’m not interested in anime myself. I am thinking of doing the med-school thing, but perhaps I’m not sufficiently conformist or easy-enough on the eye? Anyway I’m in London so we should have a big meet sometime (or maybe a slightly smaller one given I can only think of you, other half and little one) :-).

    The second episode grabbed the fanservice flag and just ran with it, which was quite enjoyable, I have to say. But the show didn’t really work for me in the end.

    The thing with fanbservice is, that, to be enjoyable, it has to be in the context of a show that’s actually bearable, and that wasn’t the case for me here. I guess it could have improved, but my tolerance is low. XD
