What better butt then the one from a best girl! The Bi-Weekly Booty is Charlotte Dunios from Infinite Stratos 2!
We close out our look at this series with another peek at the music! What else is better than that? The Tune of the Week is the second ending theme of the Infinite Stratos: Beautiful Sky sung by the main cast of the series!
A few months back I gave you my post on Infinite Stratos, a show that is probably the go to example for a basic harem anime, and one is both beloved and unloved because of it. I went on record saying I loved the series and that despite its dumbass protagonist, over-the-top dub, and sometimes fillerish nature. I had some great gags, most of the girls were memorable, and its use of CGI remains a decade ahead of its contemporaries. A guilty pleasure for sure, but one that harem fans can be happy about. But what about the second season? Well after the cut let’s take a dive into Infinite Stratos 2 and find out!
What’s better than anime booty? British anime booty! The bi-weekly booty this time is Cecilia Alcott from Infinite Stratos!
I’ve watched many harems, and what I’ve noticed throughout all the good, the bad, the great and the bleh, is that at their heart. Harems are absurdist comedies. That the very idea of having one guy surrounded by a bunch of girls who all want to ride his dick is absurd. That the humor comes from the girls bouncing off each other as they try to get closer to said main character. Some shows may have action, or other plot elements, even lots of fanservice, but the very central concept is that absurdity. Take that away, try to play things seriously and you end up with either a frustrating mess ala Domestic Girlfriend, or a blood-filled massacre like School Days. It is why something like the latter is so effective, because it shows you what happens when a harem attempts to work in real life.
I say all of this, because I believe understanding what a harem anime is, and what to expect is important for enjoying them. And there is no better example than the show we are discussing today. After the cut let’s take a dive into the first season of Infinite StratosRead More »
