Thoughts on the anime
Okusama is one of those manga that normally don’t get a TV series. Maybe a manga bundled OVA perhaps, but it just didn’t make any key sales demographic happy enough to justify a full TV anime investment.
So good on DAX Production, Seven, and Dream Creation for putting up the money to at least attempt it, even if the episodes only ran about a third the run time of a prototypical TV anime series.
Seven is no stranger to animating short run time anime. In fact it’s pretty much the only thing they do as lead animators, producing a half dozen other shows in a similar brief format (Strange +, etc ). The thing about these short format shows is that they are often forced to abandon any real attempt at story in favor of random comedy and episodic formats. They pretty much have to- you can’t really do a story justice in such a short airing format.
Well, Seven tries anyway. And that’s really my only complaint about this series, is that it feels more like a ‘greatest hits’ version of the manga rather than a cohesive story. And even then, many of the best fanservice scenes from the manga are absent from the anime (like Rin’s full topless scene, among other missed chances).
The animation is low budget, but the appealing character design and decent enough art help. The production values here feel a lot closer to say the Mujaki no Rakuen OVA than to say Monster Musume . Which is to be expected I guess, given the implied budget constraints of the short episode format.
The story itself is decent if a little cliched. I don’t think the short format did the story justice but it wasn’t a total trainwreck either. The characters are likable enough to make the anime feel like it was less about fanservice than maybe it really was.
Until today, I had no idea that Ui was voiced by Ayana Taketatsu, this is a different kind of role for her as she typically does soft-voiced characters. It was also kind of neat to think that Rin and Onihime share the same voice actress.
Okusama was kinda ‘meh’ as a nude-ecchi anime, not bad, but not great. Then again, I never expected any kind of TV airing anime for this series in the first place, much less an uncensored broadcast, so it’s probably fair to say that this production exceeded expectations.
And really, it’s nice getting to enjoy some uncensored oppai without being forced to endure violence against women or melodrama, something that has become almost pre-requisite in nude-ecchi anime these days. Every now and then it’s nice to just watch something heart warming instead.
Rin Misumi. When in doubt, just go for the hottest girl. A close second goes to the school nurse.
It’s just a shame we never got to see her fun bags in all their glory as the manga had done, instead having to settle for some nipple bumps in her one-piece swimsuit.
