Tona-Gura! DVD Fanservice Review Episodes 01 – 02

tonagura fr eps 01-02 cover

Did somebody ask for more panty shots in a fanservice review???

Anime

I wound up re-watching an older anime from 2006 recently which gives me a chance to out together some fanservice reviews.  Oldie.  But Goldie.  In some ways.  For romance, comedy and ecchi…

Plot summary from ANN:

Kazuki has been awaiting 10 years for the day when her neighbours moved back to their old house. She has a crush on Yuuji, whom she considers as her first love but to whom she never managed to express her feelings for him before they moved out. Yuuji often comes over to play with Kazuki, Kazuki’s older sister Hatsune and Yuuji’s sister Marie when they were kids. Her ideal depiction of Yuuji was soon shattered when he turned out more than she had expected, him acting all ecchi during their reunion. With their parents off in South America, both families must learn to live with each other and rekindle the childhood feelings they shared together. Things get even more crazy as they attend the same school.

Episode 01

Mc-chan, Kazuki,  is a swimmer.  Nice figure but short hair.

Those big boobs in the binoculars belong to an oppai loli.  We’ll meet her in a later episode.

Mc-chan’s best friend, Chihaya, is a hoot.  She shows viewers mc-chan’s panties early on.  I like her already…

Big sister, Hatsune, is almost too perfect.  Busty and mega-talented and not afraid of perveted boys…

Undressing.  Panties.  Bra.  Nothing wrong with that.  Until perverted boy shows up…  Still nothing wrong with that.  XD.

Cute eyecatches.

Who wouldn’t want to chase big sis too???

Upskirt panty shots seem to be a forgotten art…

Episode 02

Cute pajamas but what’s underneath is even better…

Perverted boys gotta have a porn stash.  Have to…

Big sis is already shipping mc-chan and mc-kun hard…

Mc-chan looks cute in a maid outfit.  Great that big sis added a drawstring to change it into a nude apron…  XD

Bikini’s are better but mc-chan does look pretty good in a school swimsuit…

More bouncing boobs from the oppai loli.  It gets better in later episodes.

Closeup views of panties by mc-kun are hard to beat…

Too bad the bath scene was so short and had too much steam…

Omake

Found more omake for a 10-year old anime than I expected including anime posters and nude filters…

Thoughts

Older.  Under the radar.  Kind of show.  With better than expected comedy and romance.  Better than expected for a low budget show too.   Too bad it’s a DVD only release from what I can tell.  So I used the sub I found on BakaBT since it’s been peer  reviewed for video quality.

If violent tsunderes don’t turn you off that is…  But this tsundere, Kazuki, suffers consequences for her actions and does show some character growth.

The panty shots are nice and fairly consistent.  Not on the the scale of an AiKA (but few shows are) but there are a decent number of panty shots in most eps.  Also no magic skirts here which is nice…

Also refreshing that some of the girls are fine with and can handle perverted  boys…  LOL.  Wish more girls in anime were like that…

I found the romance a little more believable than a lot of shows because the characters in the show are shipping the main couple so hard.  LOL.  And pretty much the only way such a dense and clueless main couple would ever get together…

No nipples but Tona-Gura! is worth checking out if you like romance and comedy with your ecchi and are not allergic to DVD resolution (ED for Extended Definition) and/or violent girls.

More to come…

Notes

I will review the OP and ED in a future fanservice review.  Episode 01 had more fanservice than expected so I’m trying not to make this review larger than it already is.  Plus I have some things I want to try for the OP since there’s a different pair of panties in the panty shot for each episode…

Only a portion of my HD image stitches and snapshots were included.  You can find all of them including clean copies of any images with subs in my HD albums here:  01 & 02.

Most of my HD webms were included.  But for downloading, you can find my HD albums here: 01 & 02.
