Will he overcome the wall of women that stand between him and true love? Or is he doomed to a lifetime of riding watersides with a jumble of half-naked women greased with yogurt?

Avoid 5 5 4 5 1 1 Ggultra2764 [series:1067#1552]
Sometimes, I have to wonder just what the hell anime creators are thinking when they create ecchi-fest titles like Eiken. Take every typical character archetype you can think of from an ecchi title, get much of the female cast having breasts literally the size of watermelons, enough sexual innuendo being pumped out in just about every scene (food, lolicon, panty shots, clothing flying off, etc...) and put no effort at all what-so-ever at putting together plot and characters as the innuendo carries much of this horrifically bad anime on. I'd much rather watch my way completely through moeblob titles like K-ON! and Lucky Star over having to watch this utterly tasteless piece of garbage ever again. I guess I found myself something must worst than Tekken that I had to sit through.

Watch 7 7 7 7 3 4 Xenoknight [series:1067#2967]
A school club with more assets than one little boy can handle...

This title is exactly what it looks like. A very perverse anime with gigantic breasts all over the place (not even the children are immune to having abnormal sized chests). All there is to see in this title is just how far they go without crossing the hentai line. For some people, this is softcore heaven, but for most people, this will be a quick hour of sexual innuendos and guilty pleasures. Watch it for what its worth a move on.

If ecchi/softcore is your favorite genre, then I would point you to better titles like Hanaukyo Maid Tai, Buttobi CPU, Guardian Hearts, Love Love?, and if you want a normal anime length series: try Kanokon.

Never forget Xenosaga.

Avoid 2 4 4 5 1 1 Devil Doll [series:1067#752]
[Score: 28%]

If ever an anime deperately needed an "Avoid" rating, it would be this one. Talk about tasteless, that's the word to describe this 55 minutes piece of animated perversion... it may not be hentai as there isn't explicit sexual intercourse, but it gets as close as it can.

So the size of bouncing breasts is all that matters? 111cm for a grade schooler? Bananas everywhere? Nude girls covered with thick white and brown liquids? Permanent innuendos as replacement for characters and story? The only girl with reasonably sized breasts being the loser in the end?

No, thanks. Really. If you want fan-service, go watch Aika instead, which is funny at least. Or rather try Hanaukyo Maid Tai La Verite which even has a story. Even Girls Bravo made more sense than this anime, and that's almost as low as I can give a comparison.

Holy Crap! In spite of everything I'd read beforehand, when I first saw a falling girl in the DVD menu, the first thought to go through my mind was "is she wearing some sort of flotation device in case she lands in water? Or padding to break her fall?" Welcome to Eiken!

Damnit, I'm having a hard enough time trying to convince people that fanservice laden shows like Cutey Honey and Agent Aika can sometimes be a lot of fun, and now how am I supposed to explain shows like this? This isn't fanservice, this is a travesty of fanservice! I was the one who introduced "fanservice" as a new keyword at this website, because I felt it automatically required a touch of humor, unlike "ecchi". Maybe the secret to tasteful fanservice (which hasn't crossed the line into hentai) is that there's got to be at least a pretense that the embarassing, suggestive situations came about by accident. And if we've already seen it happen a million times, (Oh, I tripped! My face is in your boobs!), that no longer qualifies as an "accident". I think this accidental element is what was sorely lacking from Eiken. One time when it did show up was during the "yogurt slide race"--which makes sense, because that was the one time I couldn't help laughing during this show.

As Chad Clayton put it at Anime Jump!: "Sexual humor, just like any other sort of humor, requires some level of wit to work... Mere exaggeration to ridiculous levels does not automatically constitute parody". I still think that nudity and suggestive behavior is a potential goldmine of gut-bustingly hilarious humor--but, unfortunately, it's all too easy to pander to the base, dirty instincts of the viewer instead of devoting some time and talent to writing legitimate sexual humor. It's shows like Eiken, which take the easy way out, that give fanservice a bad name.

Wow an anime that makes Mouse look good. Way too many boobies, and for no purpose. I've seen people mark down Maburaho because Kuriko has big boobs. I will point them to this one so they can get past it. Egadz.

Well at least it was funny. My gosh from JC Staff the same people who brought you Tsukihime and Azumanga Daioh. Damn they must've been desperate this day.

Watch Jan-Chan [series:1067#967]
I have to agree with Loplop on this OVA release. It is so full of fan service and ecchi scenes that part of me just wanted to say 'OH COME ON!!' and turn it off, but there was a part of me that was also saying 'YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING!!'. While never stepping over that EDGE into hentai, I know that this would find a special appeal to those real perverts who might find a joy in watching a bevy of unnaturally endowed students jiggle and bounce through an implausible and unrealistic storyline designed only to create situations to expose more of their natural wonders.

This series could fairly be rated a <watch>, if only to help one understand just how far anime can go and not step over into hardcore-H.

I have seen it once, thank you, that is enough for me.

Watch 8 8 6 5 2 loplop [series:1067#1797]
OK, I like fan-service and ecchi as much as the next straight male, but Eiken just goes too far with it. I don't think I've seen something that is worse than this for being distasteful. I mean come on, a 6th grader with EE cups??? Then there is the unexplained Eiken club that our hero is forced to join as the series started. He is basically every weak male bishojo game character ever imagined rolled into one. And just like in bishojo games, at the end, he gets the girl of his dreams. But all is not bad, the characters all look unique, which is to be expected from a JC Staff produced series. At least the massive mounds of flesh on the characters move around realistically. If you like boobie stories that make no sense, you'll most likely like Eiken. Just a note of warning, this is one I don’t think that I would let anyone under 18 watch because of the considerable borderline hentai content.
