October is the month that marks the beginning of the autumn. To celebrate the season, television channels and streaming services in America usually release their brand new anime series. Keijo!!!!!!!!, an anime TV series based on the Japanese sports manga series by Sorayomi Daichi has made an uproar among anime lovers in this fall 2016.
This anime tells about Keijo, a kind of gambling sport where girls stand on a small floating platform and compete against one other. The goal is to push the other contestant off of the platform into the water, but they are just permitted to use their butt or breasts only.
Kotaku, one of the leading websites that often review anime and manga also shared what they think. They consider Keijo!!!!!!!! is a sad thing for women but become commonplace in anime industry today. Launched by Kotaku writer, Cecilia D’Anastasio, Keijo!!!!!!!! anime is regarded as a work featuring only part of the body of a woman without a strong story plot. You can read the review here.
With just selling erotic fan service pictures (but not hentai), Keijo!!!!!!!! is regarded as one of the many anime that exploits women. Unfortunately, although considered degrading to women, Keijo!!!!!!!! and other fan service anime are still demand in the market.
The huge of the Fan Service world could also be seen with the release of many eroge games such as Dead or Alive Extreme or Senran Kagura franchise are sold in the market. Seeing this condition, I think anime genre like Keijo!!!!!!!! would be hard to break for some time to come.
