The third of the Ikkitousen series is scheduled to hit the airwaves this summer, but a preview clip on DVD was recently released in Japan. Thenceforth, it made its way to way to the 'net, and from there, to my computer.
And now, to you!
From the looks of it, it'll be picking up pretty much from where Ikkitousen: Dragon Destiny ended, though Mou-chan and Hakufu were working in a cosplay cafe at that time.
There's not much else you can tell from the preview, but it's entertaining to watch all the same!
Just how does Kan-u expect to get any leverage with that cross-armed stance?
If anything, the animation quality has gone up from I-DD, which was pretty good to begin with. No, we're not talking KyoAni here, but it's still darn good lookin'.
This being Ikkitousen, of COURSE there's copious amounts of fanservice:
...and the attendant high-kicks:
How could anybody NOT like this show?
...and onsen episodes:
You should see what the pan-up showed.
...and yuri, both implied:
Wasn't the green-haired one killed once?
Not that this is a surprise, but...
Understand something here: I've left out the REALLY ecchi shots. And I mean ecchi-nearing-hentai-ecchi. As it is, I can't imagine how they intend to broadcast this show. I can only assume that the preview has most of the "objectionable" stuff on it... I'll tell you, the preview makes the I-DD omakes look tame.
This one's for you, Steven.
Okay, I'll admit it: I'm as giddy as a schoolduck right now. The rest of you can have your highbrow shows... I'll take I:GG every time. At the very least, it'll be "fun-bad", and it might just be pretty decent. I won't even call it my "secret shame" anymore. I'm going to revel in this one.
Never fear, The Pond will bring every episode to you in detail!
