I may have posted this magazine scan and Megami poster in the old AIka thread, although I'm having trouble finding it. They really belong here.

Ah I recall Agent AIKa. Tons of fanservice (such as "topless bras") and a weird transformation sequence (as in she somehow turns from a caucasian blonde into a dusky brunette - caused by a broach she wears that seems to have a mind of its own; very ecchi too as it results in some temporary uncensored full frontal nudity in the process).

So this new series details Aika in her teenage years? I gotta see this.

HAHA (see av) She's pretty to look at but it was pretty mediocre. Agent Aika that is. I was tempted to try the Aika drinking game, but would've died from alcohol poisoning within 15 minutes

I thought Amisuke was terrific, as usual, and very good in the OP/ED. I too was impressed by Fukuen Misato. And the fanservice was somehow more tasteful, tasteless as it was, than in some other shows, such as Ikkitousen DD or that wrestling show that got a couple of seasons recently. Story? What story? Character design in the direct line of Soukou no Strain, but the drawing isn't as good, in my opinion. EDIT: I actually skipped through more of the episode. Tasteful? I guess not.

In Aika Remaster version there was a funny short live-action bonus promoting this new OVA. Does anyone know, are they going to continue it with R-16?
Spoiler for lotsa pantsu:

Honestly, one thing kept coming to mind as I watched this, the same thing I kept thinking when I watched Najica: What martial arts school is it that trains you to hit every pretty girl in just the right place at the right time to make her pass out in a provocative position with pantsu in full view, and how much does it cost?:P
I also thought a bit about how many hypnotists knock you out by making you follow some object with your eyes while it swings, bounces, or otherwise moves in a repetivive cycle, and I started wondering how many people faint watching shows like this and wake up thinking that they're chickens... "Follow the bouncing boob"

CeDeR: If you enjoy seeing panties.

I was positively surprised by this, I have seen both the original Aika and also Najica (it is from same team) so I knew what will be the main theme , though I didn't like those much. High-quality animation, well, it is an OVA after all, some funny parts and tons of fanservice (but not once I feel that fanservice was too ecchi, but that just me), so yeah I admit, I enjoyed it. Might even watch the episode more than just few times.

Najica was made by the same team? I just thought they had similar styles.
Both shows provide great examples of the pantsu cheat I think I've mentioned elsewhere. I can understand a garment riding up the backside, but it doesn't seem like an undergarment would really ride up every crack, fold, crease, etc. to the point that nudity would actually be less revealing. But then again no standard school uniforms would be so short that it is literally impossible to conceal one's unmentionables either.

Well, just like the old one, the prequel definitely packs a lot of panty shots. Some of them were just plain silly. Anyway, on good side, you don't need to see the old one to know this one since this is a prequel after all. Aika is much more hyper than her adult side

whoa ?!
my gawd the fanservice is everywhere

well.....i dunno about the original series and the connection of this to the original one....

but well....the story IMO is nothin special (maybe it's not the point afterall ).....
it amazes me however that somehow ppls here always choose the...errr...worst possible pose when unconscious

btw...one friend of mine pointed out that eri is like suzumiya haruhi + tohsaka rin
do anyone else here thinks like that ?
because i don't :| ....yes there're resemblances, but to compare them like that just struck me as a NO

Well in this anime, panty shot is a must. May it be just plain silly or it really must happen .

I think the anime is good because the characters are really good and the girls are really attractive. I think the anime has just begun and im hoping the next OVA shows up. I think its better than the previous Aika, she really looks cuter here. Voice acting is top knot, they really brought the characters up and the anime is really cute and hot. I really am enjoying this anime from start to end.

I dont see any problem with fan service, maybe for my service, the guys in here are okay, theyre actually funny and can do something. Unless fan service by the meaning nerd service, adding that they put some whiny nerd looking guy who wants lots of attention to fall on unsuspecting girl and grab hold of her breast or ass, well thats not fan service anymore. Its nerd service.
