If I had any doubts before that the Ikkitôsen people did this, those doubts are now gone. Between the crotch shots and the hentai groans, this has to be the same people. (That, and Sakura looks like the lead from Battle Club, the first manga from the Ikkitôsen guy.) I will stay on for at least one more episode, but the preview did not give me much hope. I enjoy fan service, but I don't much enjoy having it delivered through what feels like constant humiliation of the main character.

That, and I have a nitpick: All those months of training, and she still looks exactly the same? No change in muscle tone? No hair growing back? Lazy character design choice, if you ask me.

I've seen WWF before but the Boston Crab isn't exactly a dangerous submission move. Imo, the Cross armbreaker, STF, or the Sharpshooter is a much more effective submission move. Anyways, the episode was kinda meh to me.

Hope Sakura can develop her skills better soon.

My inner/ outer wrestling fetishist loved this episode. Every throw, the Boston Crab, drawn and animated perfectly. With the ecchi elements still thrown in!

Again though, the music feels really out of place half the time.

Besides that, I'm just glad Sakura's fight with Chinatsu didn't cliffhang. DBZ anybody?

I'm kinda psyched for episode 3, if Sakura is going to lose match after match, I'll certainly be looking for the plot in every pinfall.

Yeah, I'm throwing story out of the window just to ogle at girls wrestling. I feel kinda bad for not being absorbed in the story and "wrestling-ness." That said, I'm still absorbed in the show so far.

I'm still enjoying this. Pretty logical that Sakura starts out as a jobber, though.

This series has been kinda enjoyable thus far for the wrestling and the *cough* "well-developed" characters *cough*, but I may have to drop it to make time for one of the other 25 shows I'm trying to follow this fall. That's a LOT for me, considering that I followed 16 shows during the summer season, and only about 6 or 7 in this past spring.

Just to scratch the ecchi humor itch, I'll probably continue watching Walkure Romanze, as it's funnier and jousting feels more novel.

Dear lord where do you find the time? I am only watching 15 series this season and every single day of the week has me watching at least 2 episodes with three of the days having 3 episodes.

That's a good question, and I suspect I will quickly run out of time for so many. I guess it helped that I happened to be on vacation just chilling at my brother's place as the fall season kicked off. I've been averaging about 3 to 4 a day for the past week or so. It probably won't be long 'til I have to start making some drastic cuts, especially if I'm going to try to keep up with video games and comics, which I had already cut back on last season to accommodate 16 shows.

Watching 30 shows right now... it's a dirty job but someone has to do it! All my drops are 'organic', if the show doesn't interest me, I drop it. I don't consciously rank the shows and cut them off at a certain number. If 30 shows keep my interest then I'll find the hours to watch them all, simulcast if I can. If not, I'll catch up later.

I'm enjoying this one as I knew I would, won't be dropping it any time soon if the 26 chapters of manga are anything to go by, it only gets better!

I don't want to toot my own horn, but there is a group page for fans of the series:

http://www.crunchyroll.com/group/WannaBeTheStrongestInTheWorld!

Can't wait for episode 3. Though if the manga is any indicator, all we're going to see is more Boston Crabs. I'd like to see more pins and different submission holds.

I feel guilty for watching this show.

I mean the fanservice is great, and I mean really great, but the fact that it has to happen by seeing Women in agonizing pain keeps me from enjoying it.

It's like watching a Hentai with tenticle rape in it!

Well, 3 was a little bit disappointing, IMO.

I like Boston, Bobby Brown is from there, but really, all dem Boston Crabs is getting to be boring, like the one crowd member said "She keeps going down the same way!"

And BAH GAWD KING where's the ref when she's grabbing the rope!? If WWE games had rope breaks like that I would've been able to win against my friends better.

And Misaki was on some R.N.S. when she said "There's no give-ups here." Maybe Sakura should be taught some reversals instead of getting her ass whooped, but that's just me.

Still anticipating the next episode, but this one kinda left a sour taste in my mouth a lil bit.

Also, IDK if Crunchyroll cancels series that don't do too well, but this one isn't catching on, and if it does get cancelled, I'mma have to Boston crab somebody >__>
