Hey everyone! Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve done a review. I recently just finished an oldie anime called “Ippatsu Kiki Musume,” OR “Dangerous Girl.” While this series aired in October of 1999, I only recently came across it. And I must say, it’s one of the more **ahem** interesting shows I’ve seen.
The plot: It’s pretty simple…Kunyan is a girl who manages to get herself into ridiculously painful situations while a narrator tells us scientifically what is happening to her body. That’s it! That’s the entire plot. This show is actually a series of shorts. Each episode is only 3-4 minutes long (that includes the opening theme).
The good: I liked the short episodes…especially because the show wasn’t that good. You can literally watch all 16 episodes in about half an hour. And there are some actual laugh out loud moments though they do tend to be rare. And I’ve got to give them credit for doing something completely different.
The bad: This show does just fall into the plain dumb category A LOT. They obviously couldn’t keep the humor of their own concept going, so they basically fall back on boobs. I know, all you guys out there are running to buy it now. But seriously…most episodes find Kunyan getting into a situation and then becoming naked. It starts to fall into disgusting and stupid as the show goes on. Plus, even though it’s never said, we can assume that Kunyan is supposed to be Chinese…and her best friend is a white foreigner…and they are both incredibly dumb. So yah, this show gets to be a bit racist at times too.
If you want to check out “Ippatsu Kiki Musume,” you’re probably going to have to find it streaming. It hasn’t been licensed in America and I HIGHLY doubt it ever will be. If you’ve got a half an hour to kill, check it out. If you have better things to do with your time, skip it.
So, who out there has actually seen “Ippatsu Kiki Musume?” I’m interested to know what you guys think.
