Several fight schools are in conflict with each other. Fights
between the schools student are regular and bloody, as they
compete to be the best. One girl, Hakufu, seems fated to reunite
the schools as they had been in the past. Guided by special
jewels, the lives and fates of the students seem to mirror
the lives of the stones original owners, whose spirits lay
trapped in the comma shaped beads but will their fate be the
on the original manga Battle Vixens, Volume Three
of Ikki Tousen continues the shows obsession with boobies
and panties. The individual episodes do not have titles except
for numbers so on with the show...
eight is, to say the least, a little thin on plot and thick
on panties and punches. Hakufu's mother Goei sets her up to
fail in a fight by teaching her opponent, Kakouton, a way
of paralysing her legs. Shimei Ryomou tries to save the honour
of their school but she too is beaten - more bobbies and blood.
After the fight Geoi, Hakufu and Kokin Shuyu (her cousin)
retire to Geoi's house where unless I misunderstood Geoi offers
Kokin a threesome with her and her daughter.
nine and Hakufu, Geoi and Kokin are off to the hot springs,
a good chance for some more flesh to be shown. In the preview
it's described as a "boobython" and pretty much
opens with a bare butt spanking scene, moves on to a bit of
nipple twisting and the odd pseudo lesbian scene all of which
stays just subtle enough not to be Hentai. Bizarrely enough
for this show whilst there is more flesh than panties on show,
there is also a lot less fighting and, blow me down, a bit
of a plot. It would seem that Geoi has another reason for
taking Hakufu with her and a hidden agenda to save her daughter.
The fate of the fighters are linked to the fate of the original
spirits which reside in their gem stones and Geoi needs confirmation,
from Master Choko, that it is Hakufu's destiny to die before
her. Geoi also discovers that Ryofu Housen has attended the
spring to learn a new move, which does not bode well for Hakufu
and the others.
to episode ten, and the gang are off to the pool and its babes
in bikinis time. By know you should have gotten the idea how
the episode plays out. Ukitsu arrives at the behest of Master
Choko to help awaken the dragon spirit in Hakafu, Geoi is
obviously terrified at this change of events as it could mean
the death of her daughter. A chance meeting with Ryomou sends
her off to try and save Hakufu's life.
are a little thinner on the ground compared to Volume
Two. There's a short Promo Animation
(5 min 20 sec) which tells you little about the show, it's
more of a compendium of violence and panties set to the show's
theme song. There is an Art Gallery which holds ten
character sketches, a few trailers and the Outtakes,
wherein the vocal artists take the p*ss out of the show by
putting their own take on some of the scenes. In truth, the
outtakes are so funny it would be worth seeing at least one
complete episode done this way.
is stereo Japanese or English with subtitles and the visuals
continue to be good, if a little crude in places. Much of
the show is repetitive if boobies, fights and panties aren't
your thing, but if they are you should love this show.
