- One-line summary: toys fight
I can actually see the argument for these completely mindless FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT episodes. If the juvenile fanbase doesn't care about plot, story, etc. and is really here for the battles, perhaps this is what they want? Maybe. Possibly. I'm speculating, because you could turn yourself into a vegetable by watching this stuff. It never slows down. It never pauses for more than a couple of seconds. Bang bang bang bang bang.
It's not uncommon to see a show where it wouldn't make much difference if you watched the episodes out of order, but here I don't think you'd even be able to tell.
- Zoku Oujo & Onna Kishi W Do Gehin Roshutsu: Chijoku no Misemono Dorei
- Episodes: 2 x 17 minutes
- One-line summary: hentai
It's a sequel to a stupid, horrible 2020 two-part hentai called Oujo & Onna Kishi W Do Gehin Roshutsu
. The good news is that this sequel has more plot... but it's still pretty horrible. It starts with dreadfulness.
"The Elstein kingdom has been purged of its men and its women have become sex slaves. A prurient law has been enacted forcing women to deal with the sexual urges of soldiers, orcs and the like. Any woman who refuses to do so is purged right on the spot."
After a certain amount of this, though, our Elstein heroines strike back! Anna has been posing as a sex slave, but she's really hunting for princess Elize! She snaps off a man's penis (and then drinks the semen from it) and leads a group of female soldiers in a fightback against the Dominus Empire. We also discover the important fact that Anna's nipples can stand up like medium-sized erect penises and spurt white fluid (which I presume is milk).
This completely fails and the story reverts to its standard mode of grotesque, humiliating sex scenes inflicted by villains on captured heroines. This includes (but is not limited to) goblin orgies.

- One-line summary: zombie idols
- I've since finished it and... yup, it's still great.
Zombieland Saga is magnificent. This is more of it. Do I need to say any more?
...okay, I'll elaborate. They'd been doing well at the end of Season 1, but this episode opens with our undead idols doing drab part-time jobs. Squid-filleting, barmaid, etc. Mystery! The explanation, naturally, is that their mad producer messed up big-time and ruined everything. I laughed and laughed. They still want to be idols, though, and they even want their producer back. (He's been drinking himself stupid in bars for a month.)
The girls are planning a comeback... at a death metal concert. Well, that can't possibly go wrong. But the final song is triumphant.
Surely everyone who's ever seen this show loves it? I can't imagine any other response. (My children like it too.)
