I may only watch this episode another six or seven times at most.

Terrible, terrible stuff.
Terrible stuff indeed! I, on the other hand, had watched it a meager number of 2 compared to your copious amount of viewing. I'm not worthy! philip72

Well, I enjoyed it. Sometimes you just need something brainless to cleanse the palate.

Besides, when you are building experimental combat mecha, tiny little loli pilots actually make sense. More space for ammo

But, on the topic of Sky Girls. Yes, they do look pre-pubescent but they're supposed to be 17-16. I thought Sky Girls was entertaining, but the fanservice was a bit forced. And it doesn't help with the Motion Slits either...

Motion Slits... What a weird name... I kept thinking they said Motion Suit or something like that...
I agree.

They're 16 to 17 yrs. of age, but they look more like 12 to 14 year olds.
And, the "Motion Slits" with their tail-like connectors made it all the more... *ahem* interesting to watch. You just can't take your eyes off them if you are indeed a warm-blooded male. >_>;

Yeah, definitely a lot of fanservice here, especially for those that enjoy seeing loli in their animes.

And, as a confession, I've seen it 4 times already: twice for the unsubbed raw and twice for the Froth-Bite version. *cough, cough* But, not as much as philip72. *cough, cough*

Anata wa hentai desu.

Huh... everyone keeps talking about the loli-fanservice, but after watching before reading this thread, I quite honestly didn't notice much of either. And I'm fairly certain I'm male at least, so maybe I'm not warm-blooded... hm...

Also: They seem a tad too... "developed" to be really all that loli, the only thing that really gives it that feel is that they're all midgets, and they have the oversized cute loli-eyes.


Honestly I think it could have made a fairly good anime if given a season to develope a bit.

well i had my eye on this for quite some time and just managed to catch the subs...

imo its quite good ~ the story seems nostalgic but at the same time refreshing ^_^ i wont say that its loaded with loli fanservice but there were some ~ how cute ^_^

i think it could have easily been made into a 12 ep series...the plot is good and the animation was superb ~ had great fun watching this ^_^

also at the start it mentioned that 90% of the male population in the whole has been wiped out during the war when humans used "weapons of mass destruction" ~ so girls outnumber boys 10 t0 1 huh!?

I don't think it was too "lolli"-it did have buttloads of fanservice though-the story wasn't bad. I've gotta admit that I've watched it 6 times already-I'm wondering if this is gonna be the only episode, though?

I loved that premise, or rather the way they thought to include it. If that doesnt spell the leadings to fanservice, I don't know what would.

Too much anime has messed with your brain. These girls look about 8-10. Japan is a fucked up country.

[Ryo] have released their version of Sky Girls, and it seems they took four months to do it. Ah well, I like them for their work on Tokimeki Memorial, so I decided to give this anime a try, and man...

I felt criminal watching it. On the plus side, I really dig the exo-suits, although I will never understand the logic of exposing your front to the whole wide world when it is the side that faces the enemy the most.

Just for laughs, I want an anime that shows pilots fighting backwards, just so that they have justification for armouring the back more than the front.

Cheers.

Sky Girls is not exactly subtle about the fanservice. The first five minutes after the prologue should have been indication enough. Regardless, I still enjoyed the episode for the action. I am very much repulsed by sexualisation of lolitas, and it was the reason why I could not watch MoonPhase(TV).

Cheers.

Good voice acting from Kawasumi Ayako (yellow hair) and Shizuka Itou (black hair, Shoukou in Asatte no Houkou), with honorable mention to Saori Gotou (soft-spoken grey-haired genius, Yui in Rakugo Tennyou), Shiraishi Ryouko (the technician young man who had to make dinner, Shiratori in Mahoraba). Also Horie Yui (girl technician), Fujiwara Keiji (their male officer, formerly Shuuji in Honey & Clover), and Taniyama Kishou (the frizzy-haired guy, formerly Ken in Lamune). And totally outstanding fanservice. This show doesn't do a lot, but it does what it does quite well.

This and Otogi-jushi Akazukin are both produced by Konami, and after Akazukin OVA came 39-episode TV-series, so lets wait and see, if the DVDs sold well enough.

Akazukin OVA aired February 2005, and the TV-series started last July, so is not that they immediately start the TV-series.

Well, just watched it, and i have to say it was fairly good. Guilty pleasure at its best It is fanservice galore, but hey - who's complaining. This has enough material to last for a while should authors decide to, so i give thumbs up and prepare to wait.

If you think that is how 8-10 year old girls look you need a reality check ASAP.

Even if we imagine them as twelve, I know from raising a daughter that few twelve-year-olds are as developed as any of the Sky Girls. To me, those of you who say you didn't see the loli fanservice must have the distorted perception of reality that comes from living in the anime universe too long. I can certainly see that happening to myself over the past few years of watching anime. Programs like Najica Blitz Tactics that were riddled with panty shots and occasional total nudity seemed shocking when I first started watching anime. Now the heightened dose of sexuality in anime compared to American programming seems routine. Unfortunately that seems to include a lot more sexualization of young girls which I find disturbing.

And, yet, I watched this show and enjoyed it a bit. It's got good production values and the story isn't bad for a mecha show. But the girls could easily have been drawn to be older teens like Asuka; there's no reason to make the girls twelve, and give them unnatural bodies, other than exploitation.

I like plucky girl animes like Angelic Layer or Mahou Shoujo Tai Arusu that teach girls self-respect and independence of mind and action. These girls have those qualities, too, which is what I liked most about Sky Girls. Unfortunately the show also suggests that preteens wear bikinis that cover only the "naughty parts," with that term defined as narrowly as possible. It's even admissible to imagine some form of "relationship" with men the age of the mechanic.

Who is the audience for this program in Japan? Horny young men? Older men with a loli fetish? Girls who want to grow up to be Sky Girls? Women with a loli fetish?

As sick as it is, I think we know the target audience for Sky Girls. It is targeted at people who are intersted in the sexualization of young girls. As you say, these girls don't have the bodies of 12 year olds, although they have the faces of 12 year olds. These girls look like a pervert's idea of what a 12 year old could be.

I've hated that combination of childlike and adult ever since I first saw Dragon Half. I can't really recommend it to the lolicons in the audience since Mink's breasts are much larger than what lolicons favor these days, though mostly she seems like a 9 year old. You'll see that they've perfected the formula to make Sky Girls.
