Seven gifted high school prodigies find themselves in another world where their gifts can really make a difference, but will they be willing to change this new world?
Tsukasa, a gifted young politician wakes to find himself in a strange new world. Brought back to his full strength by an Elf, Lyrule and a Byuma, Winona, Tsukasa and the other six prodigies seek to thank the village by improving their lives. Each prodigy has a different skillset and all of them will come in handy.
There are those, however, they don’t wish to see the relatively poor village move up in the world and soon, the prodigies are faced with a choice. Either they help the villagers and change the world together or step back and watch the worst happen. It’s not much of a choice, but they decide to help. Things quickly escalate from there.
The story started off really strong, but it slowly faded away until the last couple of episodes were a disappointment. In the beginning, we followed Masato as he went about bringing down a trading monopoly and created an open market. Ringo built weapons that let them defeat a corrupt lord and rescue Lyrule. The other prodigies all helped in their own way and it was looking good. Then, with the introduction of Oslo El Gustav, the series just went nuts. In the final episode, Tsukasa fired a nuclear missile. It all just seemed to get crazier and crazier until it got silly.
Tsukasa was the political prodigy and worked as the leader to the group. He was responsible for putting together a religion and winning numerous strategic battles. In the end, though, he resorted to things that I was surprised to see based on his character. Tsukasa did install public hot baths so he’s not all bad.
Lyrule is an elf. She also seems to have some magical affinity and soon learns to use magic. There appears to be some link between her and the prodigies summoning to this world, but that’s not fully explored. On top of that, she is beautiful!
Masato is the merchant and a fairly shrewd businessman. He does offer hints at being willing to use underhanded techniques to get what he wants, but I was glad that he was able to install an open marketplace without resorting to those. After that arc, he kind of fell into the background.
Shinobu is a journalist and member of a ninja clan. She’s the source of the group’s intel, often visiting other towns and castles to find out what she can. Shinobu is also a skilled fighter and also a lot of fun.
Akatsuki is a gifted magician and his skills are used to create illusions that make him look like a god. This was so that he could be the figurehead that united the new region and allowed the prodigies to gain instant respect in their positions.
Keine is the doctor of the group and an incredibly skilled one at that. She performed lifesaving surgery on the chief of Elm Village and even altered the thought patterns of an opiate pusher. She is stunning, but also cold and a little bit crazy.
Aoi is the swordswoman and warrior of the group. Her skills verge on the levels of superhuman and one time she acted as the guidance system for a missile! She is calm and considered, but she also doesn’t mess around.
Ringo is a technological genius and is able to use her skills to push the civilisation forward at an incredible rate. She built a series of ground to air defensive missiles and even a nuclear weapon. She has a crush on Tsukasa but is too shy to do or say anything about it.
Winona is Byuma, a human with wolf-like ears and a tail. She’s the daughter of the village chief and a former hunter. Also, she is the resident yummy mummy as the mother of Elch.
I wasn’t expecting much in the way of fan-service from this series, but when I saw Lyrule and Winona in the first episode, I had high hopes. Surprisingly, there was a lot of very nice ecchi moments although they didn’t necessarily fit into the story. Still, with the incredible selection of waifu this series has to offer, it really ended up being a great series to cover, even if the story got a little boring.
Story Rating: Average
It started out with a much higher rating and had a lot of potential, but the story faded away towards the end of the season and with the final episode, I was glad it was over. It wasn’t terrible, but it should have been much better. I thought I was in for much more after the first half of the season.
Ecchi Rating: Hot
For a series that wasn’t even billed as being an ecchi series, there were some amazing scenes. The hot baths were awesome and the group massages were something else. When you consider that all of the girls in the series were easily waifu material, it just shows you how awesome the ecchi content was.
This was an average series with some nice moments. The story started out strong but failed to keep it up. It’s saving quality was the girls and just how impressively designed they were. I keep talking about waifu potential, but there was definitely something for everyone and it all looked amazing.
It doesn’t have an ecchi tag on MAL, but I promise you this series is ecchi. Just look at some of the episode highlights and you’ll see exactly what I mean. It is a shame that the story couldn’t maintain its start, because after five episodes I was really behind it. At least, the ecchi content made the last few episodes bearable.
