Stream begins on July 5

It’s this seasons “You’re Under Arrest” yuk, yuk, yuk… :silly:

I’d lay money on being able to predict the personalities of the characters, and their voices, based on their promo pics alone. Overexposure to stereotypical tropes FTW!

Is there any hope of this one being good?

Did this indeed air on 7/3?

Yeah, it already aired.
But like pretty much all of Sentai’s TBS simulcasts, it’s a day or two behind.
So it’ll go up on CR on Saturday.

Sentai Filmworks Press Release

July 5, 2014

Watched the 1st Episode and it does have a You’re Under Arrest! vibe to it. That’s a good thing though.

which one is the cross-dresser?

Ep 1 was pretty ridiculous and I enjoyed it. I’m not sure if I’ll enjoy the rest of the show as much but I expect to find out.

I hope that this is foreshadowing in the show but it was certainly ROFL-inducing:


Ep. 01

Interesting start to the series.


They focused way too much on Haruka’s boobs.

Is there such a thing as too much? :slight_smile: I’m thinking “no”, especially in a show that is so deliberately over-the-top.

When Boob Wars ends, I will be happy to watch a show about trains. Here I thought Eiken Club had gotten oversized mammories taken care of for everyone…
Eiken Club

I watched the scene twice, but still require clarification. Did she knock the guy out with the red box, or just drop the red box after knocking him out with her boobs?
Also as much jumping around that red head was doing, how did she not knock herself out with her own?
The breast physics in this just bring back back memories of the Baywatch into.

The show isn’t about trains per se though, it is about being 100% over-the-top. A serious train show this is not so “Sheldon Coopers” need not apply :wink:

There is no way that the fanservice in this is serious, not with its cheese-tastic presentation. If this show is trying to in any way be serious then they’ve failed so spectacularly that they’ve created an almost ideal over-the-top show, in that “so bad that it is good” sort of way…or it is just bad and my subconscious has put this spin on it for its own good :slight_smile:

EDIT: At least Baywatch had a theme song. I miss the days when US TV shows had theme songs. B)

Ep. 02

Talk about jumping right into it!

So on their first day, they have to deal with a bomber terrorist!
Talk about pushing the limits of super bad luck… or just plot convenience.

There is a huge continuity breach ~30 seconds into Episode 2.

00:32 : When the gun-nut draws her weapon, she has a white glove on.
00:34 A split-second later, when she holds the gun and kisses it, her hand is bare.
00:35 Right after that her hand is shown gloved.

All of this in the span of a few in-show (and real world) seconds and without any display of the glove being removed or donned.

Also, note that the character has her finger on the trigger of the gun when she makes out with it. Gun safety clearly was not taught in this show.


There are other animation fails in this episode, including our resident gun-nut speaking with her mouth closed @ ~16:05. What is going on with this one?

EDIT: a public utility making 300 million yen in profit per day?!!!
