Lynn’s Top 10 Ecchi Survival Tips!

For this week’s top ten, I’m revisiting Are You Lost? for some survival tips. For a show about four high school girls stranded on a desert island, it was surprisingly educational… or ecchicational!

Could you survive on a desert island?

Back in the summer of 2019, I picked up Sounan Desu ka? or Are You Lost? because it looked like it would be a fun show. It followed four high school girls who were stranded on a desert island and trying to survive until help found them. Each episode was thirteen minutes long and while I do often wish they were longer, I have had a lot of fun with the shorter shows. Little did I know just how much fun I would have and that I would even learn some things!

Are You Lost Episode 1 Onishima Homare Beached

I’d highly recommend watching this show as it’s pretty quick and the girls are a lot of fun. However, if you don’t have time then here are my ten favorite tips from the series. All are important lifesaving ideas, but some are a little more fun than others.

Of course, I’m no survival expert so please consult with a professional before attempting any of these tips.


#10. Testing Vegetables on Skin!

That’s right, if you cut the unknown vegetable in half and hold it against your skin you can test to see if it’s harmful or not depending on whether you get a rash or not.


#9. Showering with Friends!

It might seem like a waste of water, and if you were in the actual desert I would recommend against it, however, if you have the water the spare, good hygiene is essential to overall health and wellbeing.


#8. Look What We Caught!

Snares are a pretty good low effort way of trying to catch food. However, they aren’t guaranteed to catch anything or in a timely manner. Therefore, you can’t rely on them. It’s surprising what you can catch though!


#7. Not Just for Swingers!

Sleeping off the ground is a good idea, especially when you don’t know what the local wildlife is. I really wouldn’t want to wake up with a coconut crab sitting on my face or worse.


#6. Not Just for Vampires!

So, this one is more specific to places where you don’t have any fresh water. Homare caught a flying fish and then pounded it into mush inside her shirt before wringing out the blood for fluids. Sounds gross, but might save your life. Maybe….



#5. No one likes Dirty Panties!

Much like showering, you cannot underestimate the importance of having clean and dry clothing. No one wants to survive on a desert island online to get infected by blisters or dirty clothing. Going commando for a little while won’t kill you!


#4. Sun Protection!

Sun exposure is no joke. You might think it’s nice to get a bit of color, but you won’t feel that way when you get sunstroke or severe sunburn. Cover up, stay in the shade, and if possible use sunscreen, even if you have to share it…


#3. A Revitalizing Hot Pool!

Once more we could talk about the importance of staying clean, but you also can’t take wellness of the mind too lightly either. Being able to relax in a natural hot pool will do wonders for the spirit… and anyone watching…


#2. Stick them with the Pointy End!

A knife has so many uses when stranded in a strange place and I’m not talking about using it as a weapon. There’s a reason that boy-scouts have pocket-knives. Just try preparing some food without one.

#1. Delicious!

If you’re in an absolute bind and one member of the party is close to dehydration, swapping saliva could be the difference between life and death. Just don’t use your tongue. This is about survival, you damn pervert.


As I said before, this list is just for fun and should not be used as a real-life survival guide. Are You Lost? has a lot more tips and tricks, so get out there and watch it already. Anyhow, thanks for reading.
