Sure, this anime could have been more than it was, but in the end there was more than enough service and nudity to make for a pretty good compilation video.

Thoughts on the anime
The interesting thing about Sekatsuyo is that the manga source isn’t all that ecchi, and is completely without nudity. All the service ARMS crams into this series feels very forced, especially on the disc specials. Thank goodness.
The first six episodes almost felt like a different anime than the final six. The anime aspect of this show is nearly unwatchable early on. The premise of a teen idol switching to pro-wrestling is hard to buy into, and the early matches really are, as Conan’s late night show put it, “animated torture porn.” These drawbacks were offset by some occasional nude service scenes, as well as some of the more faptastic disk specials ever made.
Then in the second half, the story improves, the matches improve, the service is put on the back burner and nudity is completely eliminated. It really did feel as if ARMS compromised by making their kind of anime in the first half and making something true to the manga in the second half.
Even with the tame second half, this series was still pretty sexy on the whole. The nudity was great obviously, but even some of the more exploitative wrestling maneuvers could be surprisingly erotic too.
Had the whole series been as fanservice heavy as first six episodes, this anime would have been in the same class as past greats like Kanokon and Ladies versus Butlers. That it didn’t quite get there is a little disappointing, especially since a sequel is extremely unlikely. But still, I thought this series made for a well above average video as it is.
Thoughts on the fanservice video
I added a quick section for BD changes, which basically just amounted to steam removal.
I also replaced the “non-nude” section with an “all fanservice section”, meaning the nude parts will be mixed in with the non-nude stuff to help create a sense of when those moments occur in the anime.
As always, the nude stuff is repeated at the end in its own section. The specials are shown in with non-nude service included before being distilled down to their pure-nude forms in the nude section.
One of Elena, Sakura, or Misaki is the hottest. I’m not sure which as they are all so fine.
But for some twisted reason my favorite character was actually Rio (played by ecchi veteran Haruka Tomatsu, using her patented Mataemon voice). A great villain at the start, a reliable friend by the end, but what really sold me on her was that “holy shit” moment when her top was yanked down in that first disk special.
After that, none of the others stood a chance.
