That was...horrifically terribad and plain dumb. I was cringing and laughing throughout the entire episode.

If only words could express how awful that was!

Well, I will not be watching future eps, but hafta admit that I am amazed at the genius to do something like THAT to the old traditional tale. Almost reminds me of the B grade movies from the old Elvira hosted tv horror series Up All Night....

Which means the series will definitely have some dedicated watchers, or I'm a lizard (to quote Smaug).

Seriously, I think this show will be all about Momoko's peaches and not the plot!

Really, it feels that they took the Momotaro expy from Ookami-san and turn into a younger, more bustier version of that character!

This is classified as fantasy.
I would not agree that it's only that.
All girls, prevy animals and lots of big boobs.
The girls seems to be shinobi or something though.
Skipping this..

Them jiggle effects were over the top, and this whole show is just about women, peaches and lack of clothing, a skip for me too.

Rather disappointed, I like remakes of old tales.

Spoiler for About ep 1.:


This felt like a plot from some fantasy hentai more than anything else.
Sadly went the route I didn't want it to go oh well hope some people enjoyed this more than me.

Mediocre. OST's quite good, though.

Recognized YuiKaori as part of the Celestial Maiden Squad. lol, this series is okay so far for me. Looking forward to Onihime being introduced next episode in any case. Since she seems to be portrayed as opposite/next to Momoko in most of the promotional materials, I wonder if she'll end up being a true bad guy or a co-protagonist of sorts.

(I was thinking it might have been fun if the Oni King had been genderbent too (and was actually Onihime), but it looks like this series won't be as lighthearted/fanservicey as to go that far. Ah well, I guess this gives a better chance for her to eventually end up on the same side as Momoko.)

Um, it's about the story of Momoko slaying demons and collecting pink shards across Japan. That's the plot I'm talking about.

But seriously, it's all about fanservice!

Anyone else think here that a key element of the show (that is, it's based on a very popular fairy tale...apparently) might be lost in translation ?

IE, while the plot does look, ahem, peculiar, I kinda wonder if this is not seen by the average Japanese as we see Shrek (altough laced with nudity and big breasts).

If Michael Bay made a Cinderella movie with lots and lots of explosion, the average non-Westerner viewer would find the plot pretty stupid too.

Momotaro, the original story, is well-known enough that the very first animated productions of Japan were retelling of it....(cue to a post I made on an history forum...)

(...) that this anime, which is, well, a new low on a certain POV, is actually almost tastefull considering the first animated takes on this story).

It's a bit an overkill to mock fairy/folk tales plot wise : Momotaro meets talking critters, and have various adventures until he punch and stabs his way to the local lair of evil demons, that he then proceeds to kill or capture to loot the lair. Knowing today anime, I will give you a single guess about how exactly the anime try to built on this basis.

''Momotaro'' is apparently remarkably popular in Japan, since it was the basis of two of the first feature films of Japan. The setting is the same : boy meets talking critters (instead of big-breasted ladies) and go on with them on random adventures against demons...in this case, evil American and English demons, : thanks the Emperor, Momotaro enlisted in the IJN for assaulting the super-evil demon-lair of Pearl Harbour !

The first film was released in march 1943, where unfortunately a lot of the Showa-Japan version of the girls of Kantai Collection had been sunk at Midway.

The producer then redoubled with efforts to create another masterpiece filled with even more fanservice than the 2014 version (but Showa Japan fanservice) in which the said cute critters, promoted as IJA/IJN officers, are building a aircraft base that is totally unlike Guadalcanal, complete with cowardly Western soldiers fleeing in terror upon seeing Momotaro and the normal kids friends he brought along. The ending shows the kids training with energy for invading the United States.

Giving a whole new meaning to ''poor timing'', the movie was released the 12th April 1945.

I was going to drop this instantlly, when I saw crappy first episode just now...
but I saw crappy 2nd episode by mistake...
I'm starting to think that this crappiness is a kinda...cute.
At least Oni-hime (Ogre princess) is nice character as childish guileless villain.

During the eating contest, the one thing that came to my mind during the sequence was "Big is beautiful."

Got to admit, Onihime's rivalry with Momoko is so childish... that it's better than having Momoko face off against Jakioh!
