Anime Spotlight: Punch Line

01

I know that a lot of people will look at me and think “Really, dude? You liked an anime that essentially revolved around a main character who got superpowers when seeing a girl’s panties?”

Yes. Yes I did.

01

The show itself is pretty much what it looks like on the surface and then goes completely off the beaten path…and then some. It stars Yuta, a boy living in a dormitory with four other girls. Sounds simple, right? Well during a bus ride, he and the passengers are held hostage by a terrorist and are saved by a female superhero by the name of Strange Juice (her costume is a walking orange juice commercial) and after she saves everyone (for about five seconds), Yuta see a pair of panties and suddenly goes Super Saiyan with superhuman powers and takes out the terrorist. However upon being saved a second time by Strange Juice, he sees her panties and thus his soul leaves his body and the world is destroyed by an meteor out of nowhere (even Randy Orton can’t top that shit!). Yes that is the beginning of this show.

01

So after the world ends, Yuta awakens back in time as a ghost and unable to go back into his own body. So what does he do, learn from a ghost cat that teaches him the basis of his powers and he seeks to somehow not only get his body back, but in time try to save the world from a terrorist group trying to pull this random meteor toward Earth and destroy it in the same way that Yuta can do so by seeing panties twice. The story is an absolute convoluted mess, there’s twist and turns that make little to no sense, but honestly that’s not what I enjoyed about the show.

In fact, for me Punch Line was more about the absolute absurdity of the show, in terms of the plot, characters, design, premise, humour and random sexual content. It reminds me a lot of FLCL, just with a lot more boob and butt shots. I realized pretty early on that this show was not going to be some thought-invoking, social changing, fantastic plot kind of show. This was going to be a stupid, silly anime, nothing more and nothing less. And unlike some people out there who believe that the stuff they watch has to be super serious and for “the intelligent crowd”, I could care less about things like a good story if the show at the end of each episode is entertaining. And at the end of each episode, guess what I was? Yes, quite aroused, but I was also entertained!

01

Because I’m comfortable with a large amount of sexual content (because I can separate what I watch from how I act in real life), a show like Punch Line that hinders on the use of panties as a plot device doesn’t really bother me, in fact when the concept first came to my attention, I thought it was a fucking hysterical idea and I wanted to see how the show did it. And upon viewing that first episode, I laughed so hard at the pure absurdity I was watching on the screen that I couldn’t help but look forward to the next episode and the others after that. At the same time while yes, there is an emphasis on panties and butts and all the usual things that the average feminist and SJW would have a shit-fit over, a lot of the comedy has nothing to do with that and just employs the usual zaniness and insanity that anime typically loves to bring to the table. A gamer girl fighting an entire army alone with a giant mech? Sure! A baby bear with regenerative abilities? Why the fuck not? A tiny loli robot girl with big hair and looks like anime Velma Dinkley from Scooby-Doo? Abso-fucking-lutely! The anime doesn’t shy away from a bad idea and in fact, it’s this attitude that makes the show stand out. You may not like it, you may not enjoy it, but it’s hard to forget.

So if you have the chance to give the show a view, do so. And for fuck’s sake, go into it with an open mind and not just the usual attitude of “If I see panty shots, I’m out!”, because I’m really getting sick and tired of people getting all up in arms about there being too many panty shots in anime.

Seriously, come on guys! Don’t forget about bra shots!

Top 10 Female Anime Characters I’d Sleep With

So I’ve gone through my Top 10 lists for female video game characters that I’d sleep with or marry. Now it’s time for the hardest version of these lists, anime girls. Why? Because there’s just so much to choose from!

So let’s get a few rules out of the way. First off, anime’s weird when it comes to ages, so if any girl on this list happens to fall under the “not of age” range, assume that they are now old enough to be of age, I’m not trying to being a pedophile here. Secondly, these girls fall onto this list for a multitude of reasons, whether it’s that I can’t see myself spending more than a one-night stand with them, or their dangerous personalities would put me in way too much danger to actually want to put a ring on their fingers.

And lastly, but most importantly, don’t bother me with the sexist comments about how over-sexualized and objectifying this list is. None of these girls are real and if any of you SJWs could actually say to me with a straight face that you haven’t fantasized about having sex with ANYONE, that would be a miracle. This is not a list about girls who look slutty, this is a cut and dry list of the Top 10 girls I’d just straight up like to have sex with, nothing more, nothing less.

And remember, my list will be different than yours. I may like certain characters from the same anime that you don’t and of course there’s a ton of anime I haven’t watched, so just because they’re not on the list, it doesn’t mean I don’t like them. It just means I don’t know who they are.

So anyways, let’s hop to it!

10

With there being so many in anime, I had to list at least one pair of gorgeous twin sisters and Perserte and Princesca Yugiri are my favourites out of all of them. Oddly enough though, I haven’t seen much of the Polyphonica anime (I don’t read manga) to really get an idea of how they are personality-wise. What I do know however is that the artwork of them is absolutely stunning, they look like a million bucks and then some in the official artwork of the series. Not to mention they aren’t mirrored copies of each other, they have their own colour schemes that really separate themselves to the point that they’re incredible on their own as well.

It also helps they’re one of the only twin sisters I know of that aren’t like 14 or younger.

09

One of my favourite shows that I’ve watched, Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions features a ton of underage girls that while they’re adorable, they’re still far too childish to be considered, even when they age past their teens. Toka on the other hand is the polar opposite of essentially every character on the show. She’s super-serious and will do whatever it takes to accomplish what she wants. She’s also super hot. Through that scary demeanor the show gives her, she comes off very strong and tough, but also shows a soft side as she clearly cares about her younger sister. She definitely feels like the kind of girl that once you get close enough to her, she’s a real softie and a sweetheart when she wants to be. Pair that together with her figure (especially that butt in those jeans) and you have a pretty fun friend with benefits.

Just don’t piss her off, that ladle looks like it hurts.

08

Before you say anything, yes I know she’s a robot. Let’s just dream that she’s built for such situations, all right?! Meika’s my favourite girl from the recent Punch Line anime, which features a ton of panties (since the main character essentially goes Super Saiyan when they’re seen). If my video game Top 10s weren’t enough indication, I’m more a fan of smaller-chested females compared to the overtly large. I imagine most would pick Rabura out of the four, but for me Meika’s the easy choice, the hair, glasses, body type and the color selection of her undergarments just blends together so perfectly.

07

Yes I’m aware after just mentioning the small-chested preference that the next girl on this list, Saya from Highschool of the Dead does not fall into that category. But given how she, along with the other girls in this game are portrayed, can you blame me for picking one of them? Saya’s my personal favourite of the four main girls from the series, mainly cause Rei is too bitchy, Shizuka is just too much and I just prefer Saya slightly above Saeko, who is also a great choice for this list if the one per rule didn’t apply. I think the glasses just always work for me cause of the whole intelligence is also sexy to me thing, but in this anime, it’s not like she isn’t shown much. Her in those super short shorts, man! Though the hairstyle she has in the swimsuit OVA was a little weird and didn’t work for me. But when the bikini came off, I hardly noticed.

06

Yep, another robot/android on the list! It’s hard for me not to pick Korone, the weirdo demeanor and especially the Hatsune Miku style striped panties are just so hard to resist. The anime makes full use of her perfectly built (literally) body with many panty shots and the parts of the series where she’s trying everything in her power to get Akuto to have sex with her (so we’re assuming she can) just shoots her further up the list than robot counterpart Meika. Not to mention she has no problem just undressing other girls around so isn’t that a bit of a bonus. Ah who am I kidding, you’re still the one who gets beaten within an inch of your life, not her.

05

From a series that has no problem apparently showing girls topless, it was hard to pick a character from Strike Witches to put on this list. The only one that will be making a push for the Top 10 Marry list will be Lynette, so that leaves far too many options to count for this one. However it was the Major that gets the nod for this one, Mio Sakamoto. She was the easy choice in the end though as she’s not crazy and/or overly hyper like someone of the younger characters are. Though as a clearly heavy military girl, a relationship would be nigh-impossible as she’d be constantly away, something that regardless of the person in question, it’s not an easy pill to swallow. But with her very under-appreciated beauty and her “one of the boys” kind of attitude, she’s a great choice for a little bit of fun when she’s on shore leave.

04

Now here’s a chick that you do not want to fuck with…metaphorically speaking. I personally cannot stand the pink-haired super sweet, super lovey-dovey Moka from Rosario + Vampire, she’s absolutely insufferable and honestly, her voice is just too damn annoying. However, her full-vampire form once the rosary around her neck is removed is another thing. She’s a badass, a cool fox of a woman and just absolutely stunning, the silver hair does a lot for her (not that her body doesn’t help at all…). The episode where she tries her best to seduce Tsukune is hilarious and shows just how protective she probably was her entire life leading up to that point. She pretty much tries to be Kurumu and fails miserably at doing so. Honestly, other than the potential draining of blood, she seems like a cool person to be around once you get past that kick first, ask questions later demeanor of hers.

And considering the source material, it’s an easy choice. I hate Outer Moka, I’d lose myself to the succubus Kurumu, Yukari’s kind of annoying as well, Kokoa’s an absolute pain in the ass and as much as I love Mizore, I like my body temperature where it is. So Inner Moka it is!

03

I know what you’re thinking. THE ONE GIRL FROM MONSTER MUSUME WHO’S HUMAN?!!! You got ‘er! For me, there’s only two choices from that show I’d really be into and Zombina is well…dead. So no necrophilia (no matter how you look at it), which leaves Smith as the only option. And why not Smith, she’s absolutely fucking gorgeous and her attitude clearly comes off like she’d be super into the idea of casual sex. Her chill, laid back attitude and her lack of responsibility would clearly open the doors for such a case.

And I mean…I just can’t fathom any of the monster girls, I just can’t. I guess the more human bodies (no monster bottom halves) might be an option, but none of the others even come close to Smith. Like I said, Zombina’s the only one (and she’s awesome) but…no. Just no.

02

Just to put it out there, I made it past one full episode of Queen’s Blade and that was all I could take, the show is just too much. But in that one episode, I got introduced to perhaps my favourite red-haired fictional character of all time, Risty. This absolutely sexy thief, oh sorry, the Benevolent Bandit of the Wild checks off a ton of boxes for me. Red hair, tomboyish, very fit (I like slim builds, but athletic builds are just as good) and her outfit obviously leaves little to the imagination. I could do without the giant breasts, but that’s Queen’s Blade in a nutshell, so I can’t really argue it. I could’ve picked someone like Cattleya or Tomoe.

And as someone who hasn’t watched the entire series, just the first episode, it’s an easy pick when she doesn’t have a sister trying to…stay close to her *shudder* or she doesn’t shoot acid from her tits. Seriously, that’s a pretty big plus.

So with the first 9 on the list, let’s congratulate our winner, or well…winners at the #1 spot. A lot of winners…

01

This probably a cop out to some, picking an entire cast instead of one person from it. But for my favourite anime of all-time, I have to break a rule here and put them all at the #1 spot.

When I first started the series and went through it, it was just Charlotte, Laura and Chifuyu for me. After learning of the English dub, I watched again and I added Cecilia to the list. Season 2, Houki got added after Episode 1 (seriously, her in that red bikini, holy shit! I used to hate her for a while!). Over time, I’ve slowly added everyone else, Rin (to an extent, she can be insufferable at times), Maya, Tabane (her English voice is fantastic for her character) Tatenashi and Kanzashi. The bad girls like Madoka and Squall are beautiful as well. And even some of the side characters like Honne (I imagine she’s absolutely stunning without the mascot costume), Kiyoka, Kaoruko and most importantly to me, the seriously under-appreciated Ran (I cannot believe they didn’t flesh her out more in the anime!). They’re all absolutely stunning girls, each unique in their own way. I tried my best to pick one out of them all, but quite frankly, it’s just impossible, I can’t just decide on one, so they all get put #1 on this list.

I mean, I’d have somewhat of an order on who goes first (if I had the choice), but there’s no way I can select ONLY ONE.

This list was far harder than the video game list, easily. I wrote out a list for the video game version of this list and had under 20 names to decide from. This one, almost 50. So slowly but surely, I whittled the list down and this is what I ended up with.

Hope you enjoyed the list! Don’t forget to leave your favourites in the comments below!
