Quite the surprise pickup, but not a surprise the licensor is FUNi. It'll be interesting what the dub will be like.


I'm looking forward to hearing all that moaning in English.

In all seriousness, everyone seems to hate this title with a passion, but once I got used to the, uh, incidental noises, I thought it was a good story, and I really liked the main character.

It will be interesting to see what advertising they have at some sites for the series, considering this one for High School DxD New they had at SC:


I thought perhaps it was an ad by a dealer, but clicking on it took me to the the shop section of the Funimation website and the page for purchasing the series.

While this is the company that brought us "Boobies for the win!" for Sekirei, I would be surprised if we see that same ad framing the ANN home page.

Most people say this is ALL fan service but its not in the same league as Sekirei or Freezing. This does have a lot of female wrestlers wearing small outfits and putting submission holds and awkward suplexes so thats expected of a show about women wrestlers. Checkout the WWE and tell me its not any different lol. Anywho I finished the whole series on and actually I was hoping for more. It is short so they squeezed everything into 12 episodes. If the show was stretched out into 26 hell even 50 episodes I could see it being a really excellent series. I could see Sakura, Kazama and Elena developing a 3 way rivalry match. Moe could've used a rival with a Miyabi wrestler and Misaki and Juri never had a match to see who was the better one even though it was mentioned! Plus I was hoping to see tag matches with Sakura x Kazama or Sakura x Moe against some Miyabi members which could've also been developed. Plus there were a ton of other Berserk members that could've used a mini story arc like the red-head Komiyama and that fat Tiger lady could've been written out some more. Plus how was Chinatsu the best rookie when I barely heard about her at all ?! All in all they had potential to make it a longer series. I'd give it a passable 80/100. If they made the series longer it could be a good contender, at least it fleshes out an ending and ties most of the loose ends.

Necrobump!

That's all the story there is I'm afraid. The manga seemed to very quietly end. There was a bit more of a side story of Elena secretly training to take on Sakura but that's it. They never went to the Shangri-la circuit, it just ended there after their match. All done, no more, never ever. No mention of it on Earth Star's revamped site, they dumped a bunch of manga titles when they went digital recently.

I felt like it could be a real contender if it had a lot more episodes to work with. The characters could be fleshed out but I guess 12 episodes i better than none at all

WWE Divas are nothing more than violent cheerleaders in my opinion. Not the best example.
