Keijo Anime – With anime series like Manyuu Hikenchou, Shimoneta and Prison school, i thought i have reached the bottom of the barrel and we won’t get weird and bizarre anime. But i was wrong, Japan Anime industry came with another bizarre and weird anime series and that’s Keijo!!!!
The first episode was released yesterday and basically, by seeing the first episode itself, i was convinced that i don’t need to review the entire anime series when it ends.
Note : This review may sound as a rant but believe me its not a rant, I just can’t find words explain or review this anime.
Kaminashi Nozomi (17) is an exceptional gymnast. So much so that colleges with some of the best gymnastic programs are trying to recruit her. Unfortunately for them, she has other plans. Due to her family being extremely poor, money is everything to her. That’s why she wants to step into the world of “Keijo.” “Keijo” is a type of gambling sport where girls stand on a small floating platform and compete against one another. The aim is to push the other contestant off of the platform into the water, but they are only allowed to use their butt or breasts to push the others off. Will Nozomi be able to compete in the intense world of “Keijo” and bring wealth and fortune for her family?

Keijo Anime First Review
Keijo Anime series, is adapted from Manga. So first of all “HUGE RESPECT” and “HUGE SALUTE” to the author who came up with a series that is based on water sport which has the most bizarre setups of all.
This Anime has a decent story, the girl is a talented gymnast. So much, that top schools are ready to recruit her. But her family is poor and she want to support them because of which she enters the world of Keijo… Keijo – Its a gambling water sports where girls fight with each other on unstable platform placed on water.
The only rule here is that, you just have to knock out other person or knock that person out of the ring. The last one standing wins! However, they should not use hands or legs (punches and kicks) to knock out their opponent. Instead, they should use their butt and boobs to knock out their opponent! People will gamble on the players fighting each other and if any player wins he will receive a huge amount of money.
Sounds bizarre right? If Keijo were to have a normal water sport it would have been a decent anime series but this one rule of using butt and boobs to knock out the opponent, makes this anime the weirdest anime of this season.
First of all i don’t even know how this Anime series got anime adaptation? or how can a person think of such series. Everything is bizarre!! not just the weird sport but the way the characters fight using their butt and boobs and the way they move. The characters even name their movies!! The main character who is a talented gymnast joins keijo to support her family, there is a girl who was a judo practitioner quits the judo and joins keijo. Wow, just wow…
What’s more the characters take this sports extremely serious, there are many reasons for some of them its passion and for some of them its way for earning huge money and for some people its a way to found out how strong they are. Wait money is fine but, this sport as a passion? and way to find out a person strength? OK. I’ll just leave it there…
This anime will tickle your funny bone with the weirdest thing of this season. So if you are looking for anime with a decent story then Keijo is not for you. But if you’re look for the “PLOT” then you are most welcome to watch his Anime, but keep your logic aside.
I find this anime weird, but this is one of the greatest thing you will find if you want to relax and laugh till you fall.So what do you think of this anime? I”ll be glad to hear your views on it!
