I know that there aren't that many anime fans here, but I think I finally may have found the series that will inspire some of you to cross over.

The series is called Sekirei, and the basic plot is that there's this perfectly average high school guy who happens to have a unique gene that allows him to be a kind of activator for a "Sekirei" - which is basically a super hot ubergirl with all our favorite powers (though yes the costume is standard Japanese-heroine which I have no problem getting over but I know it's a barrier for some. Also, there's all kinds of energy blasts and shit too - which isn't what most are looking for either. But trust me don't let it stop you)

IMO the thing that anime does so much better than Western cartoons is the way they keep the focus on the characters and settings, and make everything so 'slice of life'. Their stories are more fun to follow than most hero-focused stuff IMO, and this series is a great example. "Ecchi" is what you call their animation that's made for horny teens (and freaks like us)... but isn't just straight-up porn (that's "Hentai").

But enough babbling. Here's the first episode. Let me know if you actually end up checking it out. I think the opening scene will hook some of you, and if not the opening scene then probably all the fanservice in the next few will ice it for you. Check it.

Wow, thanks for sharing! It definitely looks a lot more ubergirl oriented than pretty much any other anime I've ever seen.

I can't watch it due some youtube jerkness

Yeah - just type "Sekirei Episode 1" into your search engine and you'll find a million different pirate sites hosting it. Be sure you watch season 1 first - apparently the second season is called "Sekirei Pure Engagement" - so watch regular Sekirei first.

I tend to dive into these things rather obsessively when I find them. I'm on episode 8 already and will likely burn through a few more before the night is through. I wish we could see this exact storyline animated using western characters & catering to our own particular choice of colored spandex fetishism, but I'll take it. Kind of surprised there isn't already something like this sitting in the storybank...

While I hate anime in general, I love super strength in anime. People need to post more often in this forum...

finally I watched it. WHat I can say? It is an average anime, with a bit of super strenght here and there, but nothing that spetacular. I saw better super strenght scenes on Ranma 1/2

Going ahead is the only one way to go to the future.

I seeked through a few episodes, too. The only worthwhile scene I saw was when she punches a hole in the wall in episode 3 ( I think). Any other scenes worth mentioning?

It's a show that deals with the concept of an average guy surrounded by superpowered (and often topless) hot chicks using their powers against one another to compete for his affection. That's the hook for me right there. Didn't mean to mislead. If you're looking for "strength scenes," just watch Naruto on the Disney Channel (Tsunade, Sakura, etc).

There was a thread somewhere, talking about superstrenght in anime in general ... there was a huge list of series (I contributed too mentioning "Rosario + Vampire") ;)

I love R+V - and it's pretty much the same concept. Dorky guy with harem of hot superpowered girls competing over him... except in that one it's Vampires & Succubi, etc. I like the lead girl, but it's the other sluttier one with the big tits that's my fave >:)

Can't think of any other good on-topic series though. I remember reading a manga called Shadow Lady back in the day (about a shy girl who has a magic lipstick or eyeshadow or something that turns her into this catwoman-style uberhottie with powers, etc). I worked for a Japanese animation company for a few years so you'd think I'd be an encyclopedia for this stuff, but other than that nothing comes to mind. Hoping to get more suggestions though.

Not being a Manga-phile, the only ones that come to mind for me are:

Project A-ko
Hyperdolls
Moldiver

Well the main girl has super strength so it is worth a post for that reason alone.
While we're mentioning this stuff I heard from some Japanese websites (via Google Translate) that a recent manga has some good super strength stuff happen in it. Nothing is available online but if anyone can find it or wants to import it...
遠い星から来たALICE (Tooi Hoshi kara Kita Alice)
or "Alice Who Came from a Distant Star"
Again not a manga/anime person myself but it's something I found.

Well from what i saw you only have the first series of this anime. there are two the second being pure engagement.

there is also i bi weekly manga this is being scanlated by A-team scans. the manga can be read on mangafox.com.

i liked the series due to the various types that are in the series as well as how realistic the battles are. (even if it is trying to be super fan service!)
