  • Release Year – 2021
  • Episodes – 12
  • Writer Rui Tsukiyo
  • Studio – TNK
  • Where to WatchHIDIVE
  • Upcoming Content – Season 2 Unconfirmed 

This anime is a little grotesque and definitely not for the faint-hearted. Magic, time travel, rape, and manipulation- everything’s flying around in this harem anime which eventually turns out to be a revenge story.

There are subplots, but the main theme is revenge, not the good kind.

The series goes a little overboard compared to animes you might be accustomed to. But still worth a watch.

An average high school student ends up stuck in a bathroom with the scariest teacher in school. Instead of a terrifying accident, the two end up in an unforgettable risque situation.

Then, it happens again, and again, and again at different places. The anime showcases the pair’s progression as more than student and teacher.

Sick tricks and high-speed skates = a great time. Air Gear is a great example of tasteful ecchi and an interesting plot filled with high-flying stunts, street battles, and crazy tricks.

As an over-ambitious protagonist who’s got the guts to match creates a gang of orphans to reach the top, the whole series gets a facelift.

The humor can catch you off-guard sometimes, and the animation isn’t exactly HD, but everything can’t be perfect.

Will the prophecy hold true?

The newly formed sport, Keijo, is simple. Female fighters use only their breasts and butts to knock their opponents off a platform. What seems too nonsensical to be true results in hilariously ridiculous fight scenes.

Keijo definitely takes care of all the ecchi cravings.
