Now that it's aired, join the discussion at /forumtopic-968455/keijo-discussion




Plot Summary


Kaminashi Nozomi (17) is an exceptional gymnast. So much so that colleges with some of the best gymnastic programs are trying to recruit her. Unfortunately for them, she has other plans. Due to her family being extremely poor, money is everything to her. That's why she wants to step into the world of "Keijo." "Keijo" is a type of gambling sport where girls stand on a small floating platform and compete against one another. The aim is to push the other contestant off of the platform into the water, but they are only allowed to use their butt or breasts to push the others off. Will Nozomi be able to compete in the intense world of "Keijo" and bring wealth and fortune for her family?


The manga 'Keijo!!!!!!!!' is getting a TV anime adaptation.

lol that's quite a description there. If i'm to watch a fanservice-y show, this is the type, so I might check it out.

Something about the description seems particularly insulting though. It almost makes it sound like the girl has a promising future in a field she's good at, but since her family's poor, she's forced into basically using her sex appeal to try and make money rather than pursuing her talents. Maybe the show will be more lighthearted than that, but purely based on this description, it sounds messed up.

As I said, in terms of a premise for a fanservice show, it sounds like something i'd be interested in, but there's only so much sexism I can take before something becomes unwatchable. But i'll wait and see how they handle this.

Her talent is her body. As the description says, people are after her for her body. It is no less degrading, either way.

For a second there I thought we were actually going to get a sports show about gymnastics. What was I thinking.

I get what you're saying, but I can't help but feel like there's a difference between using your body for gymnastics and keijo in terms of the respectability. One is an Olympic sport, and the other sounds like mud wrestling. I mean, come on? Pushing them off only with your behind or your breasts? Might as well be bikini twister

But maybe i'm a hypocrite. I wouldn't say the same if it was about modeling, even though that might also be considered "using your body" by some. And who knows, it could be that she just really wants to do it. I haven't seen the show after all, which is why i'm just giving initial concerns rather than direct criticism. Could be a ton of fun for all i know.

But i still see your point.

Them exclamation marks though. Cause 1 or even 3 isn't enough.

Anyways looks like a fanservicy sports show that is going to be pretty enjoyable

Given that the show is about aquatic sports and ecchi that I'll probably skip it. At best, a checkout, but chances are it will turn out badly.

It's called a "sports manga" but this "keijo" thing isn't actually real, right?

As much as I wanna completely ride the tide on this one, just looked up some pics from the manga, and it looks like a shonen battle manga. Between the action and the butts, it feels like the kinda thing that Oh! Great and Akira Hiramoto might collaborate on.

I'm not saying it won't be gratuitous, oh it WILL BE. I'm just saying that we hopefully might have more to look forward to than we think.
